Matchday 22 started with favorites going 6-1 on Saturday. 

The lone underdog to win was Arsenal (+207), who captured a 2-0 win over Chelsea from Emirates Stadium. The Blues only managed one shot on target in the road loss and their grip on fourth place in the Premier League was narrowed to three points over the Gunners and Manchester United. 

Speaking of Manchester United (-277), the Red Devils won their seventh straight game last Saturday in all competitions under new head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

United defeated Brighton & Hove 2-1 from Old Trafford, which improved them to 6-0 in league play under the new skipper. The 'over' has gone 4-2 during this span. 

The 'chalk' trend continued on Sunday as Manchester City (-769) cruised to a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town as a road favorite. 

Despite being short-handed up front, Tottenham (-152) notched a 2-1 road win over Fulham. 

There were six clean sheets posted in the 10 matches but 11 of the 20 teams in action scored at least two goals and that production helped the 'over' go 6-3-1.

The second-half of the German League kicked off Friday as Bayern Munich (-209) made a statement with a 3-1 win over TSG Hoffenheim as a road favorite. After a slow start to the season, the six-time defending champions have now won six in a row. 

The Bavarian Giants still trail Borussia Dortmund (+211) by six points in the latest table as the leaders also began the second-half with a road win, this decision a 1-0 upset over RB Leipzig. 

It was the first home setback of the season for Leipzig, who is now 7-2-1 at Red Bull Arena. 

Augsburg (0-2-4), Hannover 96 (0-2-4) and Numberg (0-6) all lost in Matchday 18 this past weekend and all three teams are now winless in their last six matches.

Matchday 20 was dominated by both favorites (7-0) and home teams (5-2). 

Real Madrid (-151) captured a solid 2-0 win over Sevilla on Saturday as a home favorite, which pushed the club back into the top three of La Liga. Sevilla sits in fourth place, three points behind Real Madrid. 

Atletico Madrid (-149) also posted a shutout win, a 3-0 decision on the road over Huesca. It was the first clean sheet notched on the road for Atletico Madrid since a scoreless draw versus Real Madrid in late September. 

Valencia (+131) was the only other road team to pick up three points this weekend as it rallied past Celta de Vigo for a 2-1 win. Celta Vigo barely sits above the relegation zone in 17th place with 21 points but has now lost four straight in league play and is winless in its last five.

Barcelona (-475) dropped Leganes 3-1 on Sunday night and it now sits five points clear in first place. The league leaders have won seven straight games and have outscored opponents 21-2 during this dominating run.

Eibar (-119) finished off the week with a 3-0 win over Espanyol as a home favorite while the 'over' (2.5) connected with a pair of second-half goals.
