Chelsea v. QPR
Pick: Chelsea -2 at -112 (5Dimes)
The title favorites Chelsea are at home against relegation bound QPR, and will have Diego Costa back. They have won all four of their games at Stamford Bridge by at least two goals, scoring 11 and conceding only two. QPR will be without Rio Ferdinand, who is serving a suspension, and Joey Barton, who is nursing a hamstring. Faurlin, Onuoha, and Mutch are also out for QPR. Chelsea will also have Ramires back – and aside from the suspended Azpilicueta and injured Remy – they will be at full-strength. Chelsea will win comfortably, and the only question is by how many.
Arsenal v. Burnley
Pick: Arsenal -1.5 at -124 (5Dimes)
After a slow start, Arsenal have started to get it going – and have won their last two matches in all competitions. Aaron Ramsey is fit and could replace Mathieu Flamini in the lineup. Alexis Sanchez has been on fire thus far for the Gunners, scoring five goals in seven league matches. Newly promoted Burnley have yet to win a match, collecting only four points in nine games. They lack quality up top, scoring only five goals in the campaign. Burnley were hard to crack in the first few games of the season, frustrating opponents – but have since conceded 12 goals in their last four matches. Burnley is really out of place in the top flight, and is a sure thing to be relegated. Arsenal wins easily by 2+ goals.
