And then there were none after Tottenham and Arsenal lost this past weekend; no undefeated teams remain. Arsenal and Tottenham will look to get back in the win column in their week 12 matchups. Manchester City and Liverpool have put themselves in a position to leapfrog both Arsenal and Tottenham for first and second place in the league. The Marquee matchup of the week is Manchester City vs Chelsea, which will take place Sunday in the primetime slot. As mentioned earlier, City wants to take control of the top spot in the standings. Chelsea is looking to build momentum after handing Tottenham their first loss of the season. With another international break coming up, teams will look to collect three points and head into the break on a positive note.
Wolverhampton vs. Tottenham
Pick: parlay both teams to score & over 2.5 goals (-115)
Looking at this matchup, I am tempted to take the Wolves Moneyline, but this parlay is much safer. Both teams have exceeded 2.5 goals in their previous three matches, and they and their opponents have scored in their last three. The 2.5 should cash easily due to the uncertainty of Chelsea's back line. Last week, the Spurs were down two men when Romero and Udogie were sent off receiving red cards, and they will miss this week's match due to suspension. It should be a tight game, but both picks should hit with ease due to how teams are currently trending.
West Ham vs. Nottingham
Pick: West Ham Moneyline (-105)
Despite Nottingham coming off an excellent performance and solid win over Aston Villa and West Ham coming off a disappointing loss to Brentford, I am picking West Ham to win this match outright. West Ham is coming off of two bad straight losses versus Everton and Brentford. They will be getting Alvarez and Paqueta back this week from suspension, which should solidify the midfield, allowing them to find the success they were having to start the season. Another factor is Nottingham is a different team when on the road. Despite being successful at home, Forest continues to struggle on the road. They have only managed to score one goal in their last four away matches. To add to their struggles away from home, Nottingham only has one road win in five games. I expect West Ham to get out of their slump and get back in the win column against a team that has been notorious for struggling on the road.
