Wolves vs. Brighton
Wolves to win -160
Wolves are having a strong year this season and are off to a 10W-12D-6L start with a +6 goal differential. On the flip side, Brighton are 6-10-12 with a -8 goal difference, and they are 9 spots below Wolves in the standings.
Whoscored.com’s team rankings support what the standings are telling us, as Wolves are 5th in these rankings, good enough to be 10 spots ahead of Brighton. Wolves have been good at home overall (5-6-3), and they are 4-0-0 at Molineux against bottom-five teams this season (Brighton is sitting just above that line).
Wolves are a class above Brighton, and they are pushing for Champions League spot next season, so they have every reason to go for all three points on Saturday.
Arsenal vs. West Ham
Arsenal -1 (no push) +150
Arsenal had played terribly for a prolonged stretch, but they finally seem to be turning the corner. The Gunners have won their last two league games by a combined score of 7-2, and they won their FA Cup fixture, 2-0, against Portsmouth on Monday.
Arsenal clearly have more talent than West Ham, and now that they are finding their goal-scoring form, they should have a good chance to win this game by more than one goal. West Ham have gone 4-3-14 over their last 21 games and are third-worst in the league in goals conceded.
The Gunners should be able to continue their mini hot streak with a home win over the Hammers, and it would not be surprising to see them put up a large goal total.
Sheffield United vs. Norwich
Sheffield to win -155
Sheffield United are still not getting enough respect in betting markets despite being only two points out of fifth place, with a game in hand. They have a somewhat modest home record of 6-3-5, but they have gone 3-1-0 at home against bottom-five teams this year. Last-place Norwich City should be their easiest game yet.
Norwich are bad, and they appear destined for relegation at 5-6-17 with a league-worst -26 goal differential. Norwich struggle even more away from home, at 1-3-10.
Sheffield should have no problem winning this game, and they already won at Norwich earlier in the season. Norwich are outclassed in the EPL and they would be extremely fortunate to draw this game.
