Saturday (7 Matches)
West Ham vs. Arsenal (7:30 a.m. ET on NBC Sports)
In the opening match of the weekend, Arsenal are small road favorites and receiving the overwhelming public support to beat West Ham.
This has been a common theme for the Gunners this season, but they’ve only won four road matches, the same number as Wolves, West Ham and Crystal Palace. I would tread lightly thinking that this is an automatic win for Arsenal.
Although there hasn’t been much movement on the moneyline, the over (3) has been hit hard, increasing the juice from -110 to -130. It’s possible that the total could reach 3.5 before kickoff, so be sure to follow all the latest market updates in The Action Network app.
