Front Money Friday: Premier League Week 6

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the sixth edition of Front Money Friday. If you had bet with me last week you would have gone 7-for-10 on the matches earning you some solid cash. While those results would make most happy, I shoot for perfection, so let's take a look at this week's Premier League predictions 

Arsenal vs. Chelsea 
Of course we had to start off this weekend with the big matchup. In the blue corner we have reigning European Champions Chelsea. Sitting in first place in the table, they are currently on top form. Over to the red corner we have The Gunners. Recently finding their strong form, they look to be a heavy challenge for The Blues. 
The Gamble: A Draw

Everton vs. Southampton
The Saints finally picked up their first three points this past weekend. The only thing scarier than that is the fact that they're out of the relegation zone and Liverpool still isn't. Third place Everton looks to continue their form and hold off Southampton from adding anymore points on the weekend. 
The Gamble: Everton 

Fulham vs. Manchester City 
Over at the cottage you have Berbatov. Ethiad Stadium holds home to Aguero, Tevez, and Balotelli. Unfortunately, that trio out does the new goal scorer for Fulham. Look for City to push through with another three points. 
The Gamble: Manchester City 

Norwich City vs. Liverpool 
The scary picture of The Reds still in the relegation zone may be over this week. The Canaries haven't gotten off to as strong of a start as their first season back in the Premier League last season. Liverpool looks set to finally pick up the full points in week six. 
The Gamble: Liverpool 

Reading vs. Newcastle United
Newly-promoted Reading continue to struggle with the adjustment to life in the top flight. Newcastle on the other hand are having a decent start to the season at the middle of the table. The Toon Army will rise again. 
The Gamble: Newcastle United

Stoke City vs. Swansea City 
As much as I would like to see Geoff Cameron and The Potters take home three points on the weekend, my big ol' gut tells me Swansea has other plans. Regardless, good luck to Stoke and the two American boys! 
The Gamble: Swansea City 

Sunderland vs. Wigan Athletic 
This prediction has some more gut mixed in with a little recent performance. Although Wigan stomped West Ham in the Carling Cup recently, Sunderland has had some strong draws and a Carling Cup win as of late. 
The Gamble: Sunderland

Manchester United vs. Tottenham Hotspur 
The boys of Old Trafford look to have strong performance after strong performance in all competitions. Rather it be the usual starting eleven or the a group of young reserve squad lads taking first team spots. United's way of developing young players rather than spending chunks of cash has really shown in some matches this season. Look for them to put AVB deeper in the rabbit hole. 
The Gamble: Manchester United

Aston Villa vs. West Bromwich Albion 
West Brom has been off to a great start. Sitting somewhat happy in fourth place, they look to take on bottom half Aston Villa. Should be a good match, but I think I know who's coming out on top. 
The Gamble: West Bromwich Albion 

Queens Park Rangers vs. West Ham United
After a short absence from top flight soccer The Hammers have gotten off to a solid start having them sitting in ninth place currently. QPR narrowly escaped relegation right away last season. Looks like this season might get them after all. 
The Gamble: West Ham United
