- In Wednesday's Premier League action, Manchester United and Arsenal will square off at Old Trafford (2:45 p.m. ET on NBC Sports) with the Gunners on a 19-match unbeaten run in all competitions.
- Early action has come in on Arsenal to extend the streak to 20, and bettors have been active in the other five matches as well, including Wolves-Chelsea and Fulham-Leicester City.
Manchester City (-270) kept on rolling Tuesday with a 2-1 victory at Watford, while West Ham (-143), Bournemouth (-133) and Brighton (+217) all picked up decisive home wins.

Manchester United vs. Arsenal (3 p.m. ET on NBC Sports)
It’s been a struggle throughout the season for Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United and a win against Arsenal could turn things around. Early indications from bettors don’t find that to be likely, though.
After opening at +120/+125, United have drifted to +145 while action has come in on the Gunners to win or draw. Arsenal have gone 19 straight games without a loss in all competitions, and extending the streak at Old Trafford would be another significant achievement.
