EPL Odds: Arsenal favored to extend Premier League winning streak
Arsenal has won its last league six matches for a since losing to Tottenham Hotspur back on Feb. 7, but the Gunners will get a tough test this week when they attempt to extend that win streak at home against Liverpool this Saturday.
Manchester United beat Arsenal 2-1 back on Nov. 22 earlier this season. Since then, Arsenal is 8-0-0 in its last eight home matches.

Like Arsenal, Liverpool enters this game in strong recent form with a 10-1-2 record over its last 13 league games, with the one loss coming in its last game against Manchester United.
Liverpool, playing without the suspended Steven Gerrard and Martin Skrtel, would pay +350 on an outright upset and +275 if the two teams play to a draw, as they did at Liverpool back in December. Arsenal holds a 7-2-4 edge in the last 13 games between these two rivals.
Chelsea is still the only undefeated team at home in the English Premier League with an 11-0-3 record in league play this season at Stamford Bridge. The Blues will look to stay that way when they host Stoke City this Saturday as a -400 favorite at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.
Stoke has lost each of its last two games and is just 5-6-4 away from home this season. The road club is going off at +1100 to win outright and +475 to force a draw. Chelsea is 13-1-2 in its last 16 games against Stoke City.
Everton hosts Southampton looking for its first three-game winning streak of the season. Breaking out of a 1-7-4 slump over its previous 12 games, Everton has won each of its last two and is a slight favorite at +165 at home on Saturday. Southampton is going off at +175 while a draw would pay +225. Everton has lost two straight against Southampton since going 4-0-4 over the previous eight games in the series.
