Two highly emotional London derbies kick off a Sunday of live Premiership football for us this weekend. Arsenal's visit to Upton Park could have big implications on the Gunners putting together any meaningful challenge for the title. A draw at home to Everton last week left many bettors licking their wounds and early rumours indicate that most will be looking to recoup their betting losses after Arsenal were left seven points shy of their Premiership rivals. A current price of 6.2 bet odds will attract many value seeking gamblers to West Ham but with goals so hard to come by the chance of winning three points looks remote against great Premiership opposition. Arsene Wenger will be wanting a quick and potent response after the midweek goalless football match against CSKA Moscow. EPL punters currently see Arsenal as 1.65 odds to win the match and those who want a bigger price can try and bet in-running in the hope of squeezing some extra value out of the game.
History does not favour Tottenham as they host the Premier League Champions at White Hart Lane. Chelsea have totally dominated this fixture in recent football seasons and are now in top form after a slow start to their title defence. Spurs in the meantime have struggled to replicate their EPL form from last year and the pressure of UEFA Cup football seems to have adversely affected them in the Premiership. Tottenham have performed consistently well against teams from the bottom end of the league table while they continue to struggle terribly against the big four and their 5.9 odds to win the match accurately reflects their chances of winning. Big bettors will surely be out in droves to back Mourinho's side at 1.74 odds and continue their recent winning streak. In a Premiership football match where a solid rearguard offers the home team their best chance, under 2.5 goals at 1.78 bet odds may be the value pick for exchange traders.
