This weekend's action in the Barclay's Premier League concludes with four matches on the board Sunday. Arsenal's victory at Cardiff Saturday extended their lead atop the table, but Liverpool and Chelsea will look to close the gap with a full three points Sunday.

Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United (+188, +240, +163)

Why bet Tottenham: The pressure is on in North London. Rumors are running wild about manager Andre Villas-Boas' job in jeopardy. Spurs haven't scored in three matches and are more desperate than any other club for a positive result. There was a lot of hype around Spurs after the transfer window closed. Now it's time for the signings to justify their price tags.

Key players out/doubtful: Christian Eriksen, Danny Rose

Why bet Manchester United: As Spurs have plummeted, United have soared. The Red Devils haven't lost a Premier League game since Sept. 28 and throttled a helpless Bayer Leverkusen side midweek. A potentially fresh Robin van Persie could be available for David Moyes after the Dutchman missed the Leverkusen match.

Key players out/doubtful: Michael Carrick, Darren Fletcher

2012-13 fixture result: Tottenham 1, Manchester United 1

Key betting note: Man United are unbeaten in 27 of the last 28 matches with Spurs (all competitions).


Hull v Liverpool (+550, +300, -163)

Why bet Hull: After a fairly decent start to the season, points have been sparse for the Tigers in recent efforts. Despite coming off a home loss to lowly Crystal Palace, they are still sit ninth in the table on home form. Quite respectable.

Key players out/doubtful: Sone Aluko, James Chester, Stephen Quinn

Why bet Liverpool: Glory days seemed to have returned to Anfield as the club sits second in the table and are seemingly capable of scoring goals for the fun of it. Striker Luis Suarez has totaled nine league goals in seven appearances since returning from suspension.

Key players out/doubtful: Iago Aspas, José Enrique, Sebastián Coates

2012-13 fixture result: N/A

Key betting note: The Reds have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven league matches.


Manchester City v Swansea (-350, +500, +1200)

Why bet Manchester City: The Citizens demolished Spurs 6-0 one week ago, but consistency has been their bugaboo this season. They defeated Norwich 7-0 and promptly followed that up with a 1-0 loss to Sunderland. Álvaro Negredo has established himself as one of the better signings of the transfer window with five goals in eight league appearances. You need look no further than their home record, however. City has 18 points from its six home matches thus far.

Key players out/doubtful: David Silva, Stevan Jovetic, Matija Nastasic, Jack Rodwell

Why bet Swansea: With four points in their last two matches, the Swans will look to build on a fairly positive run of form. A win and the Swans return to the top 10 of the table. Injuries to Michu and now Wilfried Bony will make leaving Manchester with any points difficult, however.

Key players out/doubtful: Michu, Garry Monk, Wilfried Bony

2012-13 fixture result: Manchester City 1, Swansea 0

Key betting note: City has been winning at halftime and full time in its last four home matches.


Chelsea v Southampton (-163, +300, +550)

Why bet Chelsea: The Blues will need to rebound from a lifeless, dismal performance against Basel in mid-week Champions League action. Southampton will prove to be a tough opponent, but Jose Mourinho has Chelsea essentially unbeatable at Stamford Bridge having not lost in 66 matches.

Key players out/doubtful: Samuel Eto'o, David Luiz, Marco van Ginkel

Why bet Southampton: Despite last week's 2-0 loss to Arsenal, it has been a dream start to the campaign for the Saints. They still boast a paltry seven goals conceded with is best in the league and have a very respectable eight points in six matches away from St. Mary's.

Key players out/doubtful: Guly, Jack Cork

2012-13 fixture result: Chelsea 2, Southampton 2

Key betting note: Southampton has played under the 2.5 goal scoreline in its last 11 away league games.
