Chelsea vs. Watford (Kick-off 15:00 SAST)
Chelsea have won six and drawn two of their last eight matches at Stamford Bridge and this makes them overwhelming favourites to win at 1.35 (via Hollywoodbets). The Blues have covered the -1 handicap market in four of their last six home Premier League matches and there is value in backing Chelsea in this market at 1.85.
That being said, if you think that Chelsea's congested fixture list is going to cause a slip-up in this match, Watford can be backed at big odds of 8.50 with a draw paying 5.25. The Hornets are also paying 3.00 in the Double Chance market.
Huddersfield Town vs. Manchester United (Kick-off 15:00 SAST)
Manchester United are huge favourites here at 1.35 (Hollywoodbets). Rightly so, given that Huddersfield have long since been relegated and they currently sit bottom of the table with just 14 points from 36 matches.
The Red Devils have endured a difficult patch themselves recently but should have enough firepower to recover against the Terriers at the John Smith's Stadium. If you disagree with that, Huddersfield can be backed for victory at 9.00 with a draw paying 5.25.
Arsenal vs. Brighton & Hove Albion (Kick-off: 17:30 SAST)
The Gunners recovered some form in midweek with a 3-1 UEFA Europa League victory over Valencia after a difficult run leading up to that. Arsenal are a strong home team and this is why betting on them in the -1 handicap market at 2.00 (Hollywoodbets) may well come off.
The Gunners have won nine of their last 10 matches at the Emirates Stadium and desperately need another victory as they look to reign in Chelsea, who are two points above them in the race for fourth as it stands.
If you fancy the Seagulls to pull off the upset, Chris Hughton's men are paying 8.25 for the victory with a draw paying 4.70.
