Arsenal beat West Ham 3-1 earlier this season and 4-1 in their previous meeting, so they should go into the game full of confidence. They are<a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4527&amp;book=Pinnacle" target="_blank" title="Live Match Odds"> +103 with Pinnacle </a>and that looks like a good price on Unai Emery’s men, as the Hammers are winless in their last two games. But West Ham are blessed with a wealth of attacking talent nowadays, with Marko Arnautovic leading the line with aplomb and Felipe Anderson wreaking havoc in behind him. The likes of Javier Hernandez, Lucas Perez and Andy Carroll provide further options, while Samir Nasri would relish the chance to face his former club. West Ham certainly have the firepower to thrive against a very shaky Arsenal backline, which has been ravaged by injuries, so goals might be a better option than outrights. You can get -125 at the likes of Sky Bet and <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4520&amp;book=Coral" target="_blank" title="Live Match Odds">Coral</a> and both teams to score and over 2.5 goals, and that looks really attractive.</p><h2 style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/english-premier-league/brighton-&amp;-hove-albion-fc-vs-liverpool-fc-3507398/odds/" rel="nofollow" title="Live Match Odds">Brighton vs. Liverpool</a></h2><h2 style="text-align:center">Saturday, January 12, 10 a.m. ET</h2><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3507398, "sportsbooksIds":[349,238,43,1275,169], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p><p>The Reds lost their first game of the season last time out as Leroy Sane’s late strike handed defending Premiership champions a vital 2-1 victory. That cut Liverpool’s lead at the top of the table to four points, with 17 games remaining, and they need to get back to winning ways quickly. Fortunately, they have a very strong record against Brighton. They beat the Seagulls 5-1 at the Amex last season and 4-0 at Anfield, and followed it up with a 1-0 victory at Anfield earlier this season. They have won all five games in their history against Brighton, and they have the attacking firepower to break down Chris Hughton’s stubborn defence. Liverpool win to nil is <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4581&amp;book=Bet365" target="_blank" title="Live Match Odds">+110 with Bet365 </a>and that looks tempting, as they have only conceded 10 goals in 21 league games so far this season. If they can keep Glenn Murray quiet, they should record another clean sheet on Saturday. Otherwise, they are priced at around -333 with most bookmakers and that looks good for a parlay.</p><h2 style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/english-premier-league/chelsea-fc-vs-newcastle-united-3507401/odds/" rel="nofollow" title="Live Match Odds">Chelsea vs. Newcastle</a></h2><h2 style="text-align:center">Saturday, January 12, 12:30 p.m. ET</h2><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3507401, "sportsbooksIds":[349,238,43,1275,169], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p><p>This looks like developing into a tight, tense game that could be decided by a moment or two of individual brilliance. Chelsea can call upon Eden Hazard to deliver it, as the mercurial Belgian remains in exceptional form and he possesses the pace, dribbling ability and intelligence to unlock a tight Magpies defence. Rafa Benitez knows his sides technical limitations, so he likes to keep it tight at the back and hopes to nick a few points here and there in a bid to avoid relegation. That means Newcastle are often involved in low-scoring games that are also low on entertainment, and their fans have had little to cheer of late. They have only managed 15 goals in 21 games, and that should suit a somewhat ponderous Chelsea defence. The Blues struggle going forwards, but they should have enough to gun down Newcastle, so Chelsea to win and under 3.5 goals looks great at +105 in this game.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Always learning. 🔴 &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/tQYj5KLAom\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/tQYj5KLAom&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— Manchester United (@ManUtd) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/ManUtd/status/1082330317887860736?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;January 7, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</p><h2 style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/english-premier-league/tottenham-hotspur-vs-manchester-united-3507406/odds/" title="Live Match Odds">Tottenham vs. Man Utd</a></h2><h2 style="text-align:center">Sunday January 13, 11:30 a.m. ET</h2><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3507406, "sportsbooksIds":[349,238,43,1275,169], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p><p>Man Utd have enjoyed a fantastic upturn in results since bringing in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to replace Jose Mourinho in the dugout. They have won all five games since taking that decision and a feel-good factor has returned to the club. However, those wins came over Cardiff, Huddersfield, Bournemouth, Newcastle and Reading, so three teams struggling to avoid relegation, a Championship team and a Bournemouth side in free-fall. Now they face a far sterner test of their mettle against a genuine heavyweight in title chasing Tottenham, and Mauricio Pochettino’s men look attractively priced at <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4527&amp;book=Pinnacle" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top-Rated Sportsbook">+109 with Pinnacle</a> and<a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4769&amp;book=Betvictor" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top-Rated Sportsbook"> +115 with Bet Victor</a> to bring the Red Devils crashing back down to earth. Spurs have a much better defence, and their attack is on fire right now. Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-Min and Dele Alli should have plenty of joy against a weak Man Utd backline, so a home win looks like a good bet in this one.</p>
