The Cherries have suffered four straight defeats and slumped down to mid-table, so they will be desperate to return to winning ways. A nightmarish run saw them face Manchester City, Arsenal, Manchester United and Newcastle and they came away with zero points. But the fixture list now eases up for Eddie Howe’s men, starting with a winnable home clash with Huddersfield. The Terriers lost 2-1 at home to Brighton at the weekend after going down to 10 men in the first half, and they should be fatigued from that physical contest. They have lost three out of six away games this season, and Bournemouth have the quality to kill them off in attack, so a home win at -131 with Pinnacle looks attractive.

West Ham vs. CardiffTuesday, 2:45 p.m. ET

The Hammers delivered a magnificent performance to win 3-0 away at Newcastle on Saturday, ending a long unbeaten run for Rafa Benitez’s men. Felipe Anderson is on fire, having banged in four goals in as many games, and West Ham is blessed with plenty of attacking options. Marko Arnautovic is overdue a big performance, and Javier Hernandez reminded everyone of how deadly he is in front of goal with a brace against the Magpies. Cardiff climbed out of the relegations zone with a 2-1 win over Wolves on Friday night, and they might benefit from an extra day of rest compared to their opponents. But West Ham looks far too strong going forward for Cardiff to handle, and this really should result in a routine home win for Manuel Pellegrini’s side. Pinnacle has -137 on the West Ham win, which looks great, and they could also make a nice double with Bournemouth.

Watford vs. Manchester CityTuesday, 3 p.m. ET

The champions produced a strong second-half performance to vanquish Bournemouth at the weekend, and their big squad should be a tremendous asset at such a busy time in the calendar.

Watford is winless in four games and they too have plummeted down the table after a strong start to the season. They have failed to score in their last two games, and Man City is in superb form right now, led by the irrepressible Raheem Sterling, so this should be a simple fixture for the Citizens. Man City -1.5 Asian handicap is -129 with Bet365 and that looks enticing, as they beat Watford 6-0 here last season and 5-0 the previous season.

Wolverhampton vs. ChelseaWednesday, 2:45 p.m. ET

Wolves are another team to suffer an alarming slump in form and a six-game winless streak has seen them fall to 12th in the table. Back-to-back defeats against relegation candidates Huddersfield and Cardiff must have drained their confidence, and they are unlikely to thrive against title-chasing Chelsea. The Blues beat Fulham 2-0 on Sunday and they have a big enough squad to rotate a few key players for this game. Alvaro Morata and Willian can come in for Olivier Giroud and Pedro, and that should give Chelsea enough fresh legs to overwhelm this struggling Wolves side. The away win is -119 with Pinnacle, which looks really tempting.

Manchester United vs. ArsenalWednesday, 3 p.m. ET

The Gunners will be overflowing with confidence after battering Tottenham 4-2 on Sunday. Spurs were in excellent form heading into the game, having just beaten Chelsea and Inter Milan, but Arsenal swept them aside in brutal fashion. Lucas Torreira was a beast in midfield, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice to take his tally to 10 league goals for the season. That saw Arsenal open an eight-point lead over Man United, which has gone three Premiership games without a win. Jose Mourinho is on very thin ice at the club, as results have been dreadful and his comments to the press must surely have upset the board. On form, this looks like an away win all day long. But Arsenal has a horrendous record at Old Trafford; they have not won there in the league since 2006. It might therefore be better to swerve the outrights and go for "both teams to score" and "over" 2.5 goals at -118 with William Hill. Both teams have dodgy defenses, but there will be a great deal of attacking quality on the pitch, so it should prove to be an open, entertaining game.
