In Premier League action this weekend West Ham, Everton, and Liverpool look to get closer to the top five in the league table while Arsenal looks to stay atop the standings.
In Germany the Dortmund vs. Schalke match pits a couple of the top teams against each other, and in Italy the Derby della Capitale is always a big match with big stakes. Barcelona is the big home favorite in Spain facing a dangerous Villarreal squad.
West Ham vs. Everton
West Ham and their solid attack look to bag three points at home against Everton.
West Ham has been solid this season sitting in sixth place in the league table, but they are coming off a loss. Everton is in ninth place and they snapped their two-match losing streak in their last match. West Ham has one of the highest scoring teams in the EPL and they had scored at least two goals in every match this season before getting shut out in their last match.
Bet365 has West Ham as the slight home favorite at +150 with Everton at +180 and a draw line of +230. [Matchup Report]
Arsenal vs. Tottenham
The red-hot Gunners look to extend their winning streak this weekend.
Arsenal is tied with Manchester City atop the EPL table and in their last six matches overall they have only conceded one goal and that was in a 2-1 win over Bayern Munich in Champions League play. They have given up the fewest goals in the league so far and face a Tottenham squad that sits fifth in the league table and has won two straight matches. The Spurs have conceded the second fewest goals in the Premier League.
Arsenal is posted at -163 at Bet365 with Tottenham at +425 and a draw line at +300. [Matchup Report]
Liverpool vs. Crystal Palace
Liverpool is coming off a big win and are big home favorites facing an out-of-form Crystal Palace.
Liverpool is coming off a big win over Chelsea on the road and they have moved up the league table going unbeaten in their last five league matches. They sit in eighth place in the league table and face a Crystal Palace squad that got off to a great start, but has lost two of their last three matches, with a draw in the other, and has fallen to 10th in the league table.
Liverpool has odds of -150 at Bet365 with Crystal Palace at +450 and a draw line of +250. [Matchup Report]
Dortmund vs. Schalke
Two of the top teams in the Bundesliga square off this weekend.
Dortmund sits second in the Bundesliga table six points clear of Schalke. Dortmund is riding a three match league winning streak while Schalke only has one win in their last four matches with two losses and a draw. Schalke has a decent defense, but will have their hands full facing a Dortmund attack that has scored the second most goals in the league and has scored 18 goals in their last four matches overall.
Dortmund is the home favorite at Bet365 with posted odds of -333 with Schalke at +700 and a draw line at +500. [Matchup Report]
AS Roma vs. Lazio
The Derby della Capitale takes place in the Italian Capital where much is at stake.
The derby in Rome takes place this weekend with third place AS Roma hosting seventh place Lazio. Roma had their four match winning streak snapped in their last match and Lazio is not in good form losing three of their last four matches including two in a row. Lazio has conceded two more goals then they have scored on the season and in losing their last two matches they have given up five goals and scored two. Their defense will be key in this match facing a Roma squad that has scored the most goals in Serie A.
Roma is posted at -118 at Bet365 with Lazio at +300 and a draw line at +260. [Matchup Report]
Barcelona vs. Villarreal
Barcelona looks to stay atop the La Liga table with a home win.
Big shock that Barcelona is tied atop the La Liga table with Real Madrid and they have won three straight matches. Villarreal got off to a great start then had a little hiccup with two straight losses, but they are in fifth place in the league table and are coming off a win. This match pits Barcelona and their offense, which has scored the second most goals in the league, against a Villarreal defense that has conceded the fourth fewest goals.
Bet365 has Barcelona as the big home betting favorite at -333 with Villarreal at +800 and a draw line of +240. [Matchup Report]
