Burnley v Chelsea Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th April 2018

Clarets can extend unbeaten streak


Burnley v Chelsea Betting Tips – Premier League 19th April 7.45pm

Burnley made it five straight wins in the Premier League as they collected a 2-1 home win over Leicester on Saturday. It’s been fantastic stuff from them and they are in with a chance of a sixth-place finish now and could well find themselves in Europe next term. Chelsea dodged a bullet after producing a fantastic comeback from 2-0 to take a 3-2 win at St Mary’s against relegation-threatened Southampton on the weekend.

Burnley News and Form

It has been great stuff from the Clarets lately with a five-match winning run going in the top flight. Four of those wins have been by a 2-1 scoreline and in the bet365 correct score market a Burnley 2-1 option is at 14/1 odds a long way from the shortest priced option of a Chelsea 1-0 at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:39 p.m. on April 15th, 2018). Burnley have a W2 D2 record from their last four at home, winning their last two on home soil. Three points in his one would mean that they move up into sixth at the expense of Arsenal. Overall their home form is W7 D4 L5 for the season and they did hold Man City to a 1-1 draw just back in February. Burnley have only come up with the 14 home goals all season, but defensively have been rock solid with 13 in 16 conceded. Only 25% of their home games have made it above the 2.5 goal line, however, each of their last five (home and away combined) have gone over and over 2.5 goals at bet365 does appeal at 11/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:39 p.m. on April 15th, 2018). Striker Chris Wood has now scored in four of their last five.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea gathered themselves for a second-half rally to turn around a 2-0 deficit at Southampton and win 3-2. Super-sub Olivier Giroud got a brace with Eden Hazard getting the other for the Blues. Chelsea really needed that away result as well, because they had lost their previous three away from home in the Premier League. They don’t look to have it all together at the back for some reason this season and both teams to score at bet365 is at 19/20 odds * (Betting Odds taken at 9:39 p.m. on April 15th, 2018). Chelsea have scored an average of 1.8 goals per away game this season, but have conceded at over a goal per game now. 69% of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. The Blues haven’t picked up a clean sheet in any of their last four road games and none in their last six home and away. So they are there for the taking at the back and 67% of the goals that they have conceded away from home have been in the second half of matches which suggest that they lack concentration when it matters most. They have scored in 81% of their away games this season and Eden Hazard is their top away scorer with eight.

Burnley v Chelsea Head to Head

Chelsea’s season got off an unexpected start as they suffered a 3-2 home loss at Stamford Bridge against Burnley. That was the first ever win for the Clarets over the Blues in the Premier League. Chelsea are W4 D2 L1 from their seven previous Premier League fixtures against the Clarets. Both teams have scored in each of the three previous Premier League meetings at Turf Moor and five of the seven previous top-flight clashes have gone above 2.5 goals.
