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

Burnley
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.

Burnley v Chelsea Betting Odds*

Chelsea 10/11, Draw 13/5, Burnley 14/5* (Betting Odds taken at 6:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018)   

Burnley v Chelsea Predictions

Draw: This may well be a very entertaining match up at Turf Moor. The Clarets look really full of confidence at the moment and Chelsea's defence can clearly be gotten at. So back an entertaining draw to turn up in midweek.

Southampton v Chelsea Predictions & Betting Odds – 14th April 2018

Southampton
Southampton v Chelsea Betting Tips - Premier League 14th April 12.30pm Southampton are going to have to snap out of their poor fortunes pretty quickly if they are going to turn around their season. It’s going from bad to worse and they are on a three-match losing streak. Chelsea only managed a home point against West Ham last weekend and are in danger now of slumping out of the top five with Arsenal now hot on their heels.

Southampton News and Form

It is a three-match losing sequence that the struggling Saints find themselves on at the moment and they are winless with a D2 L4 record in their last six played. Since taking a home win over Everton back on November 26th, Southampton have won just one game in the top flight since then. That was in early February against West Brom. There have been just the five wins for Southampton this season. Goals have been a struggle for them too with only having scored in two of their last six league games. Under 2.5 goals at Bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 00:22 p.m. on March 20th, 2018) looks a decent option for this game. The home record that Southampton have come up with on home soil this season is W3 D7 L6 and since that aforementioned win over Everton, they are eight games without success at St Mary's. Each of their last four home games have gone under 2.5 goals and they have failed to come up with a goal in their last two at home. Southampton average exactly one goal per home game this season. Only bottom side West Brom have a worse home record that Southampton have this season.

Chelsea News and Form

It hasn’t been a great season for Chelsea who are just limping towards the finish line now. They had full control of their home game against West Ham on the weekend, but couldn’t finish the job and threw away points in a 1-1 draw. That is just a W2 D1 L5 record that Chelsea have come up with in their last eight Premier League games now. They have lost each of their last three away from home, against Watford Man Utd and then Man City and they are left with a W7 D3 L5 away record this season. The just can’t seem to hold things together at the back and there has been no clean sheet for them in their last five league outings. Both teams to score at bet365 may well be worth a flutter at 10/11 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:22 p.m. on March 20th, 2018). Chelsea are just struggling to close out games. Alvaro Morata had plenty of chances against West Ham and did look much sharper than he has done in a while. The top four finish has gone for Chelsea and they find themselves in fifth with only the in-form Arsenal now three points behind them. However, it may not be all in vain. The last time they didn’t play in in the Champions League, they won the Premier League (last season).

Southampton v Chelsea Head to Head

Chelsea collected a narrow 1-0 success over the Saints when they met earlier in the season at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea are now on a four-match winning streak against Southampton. The Saints, in fact, have won just one of the last nine meetings between the two clubs (W1 D2 L6). Chelsea took a 2-0 win at St Mary’s last season and they are unbeaten in their last four league visit there, winning three of them.

Southampton v Chelsea Betting Odds*

Chelsea 5/6, Draw 13/5, Southampton 10/3* (Betting Odds taken at 00:22 p.m. on March 20th, 2018)

Southampton v Chelsea Predictions

Draw: Would it be a huge surprise if neither managed to collect the win in this one? Probably not. Chelsea can’t seem to close out game and Southampton haven’t tasted success in a long while in the top flight. A share of the spoils seems to be the most likely.

Chelsea v West Ham Predictions & Betting Odds – 8th April 2018

Chelsea
Chelsea v West Ham Betting Tips - Premier League 8th April 4.30pm Chelsea failed to deliver the points they needed against Spurs on the weekend to keep themselves in the race for a top-four place. That chance has been shot now with an eight-point gap to make up heading into the weekend with just the seven games to go. West Ham eased their relegation worries with a crucial victory at home over Southampton. It’s a tough London derby away day for them here though.

Chelsea News and Form

The Blues pretty much saw their hopes of a top-four finish this season come crashing down with a 3-1 home loss against Spurs last weekend. That was their fifth defeat in their last seven league games (W2) so it hasn't been good from them. The two wins in that sequence though were on home soil and they are holding a W10 D2 L4 record at Stamford Bridge this season. Chelsea have only suffered the two defeats in their last twelve home fixtures in the Premier League. They don't look all that good at the back, there have been a lot of mistakes creeping into their game the longer the season has worn on. Both teams to score at bet365 is a viable option for this at 21/20 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 8:36 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018).

Chelsea v Westham 2018 Infographic

They have not been running all that hot going forward either apart from the odd top performance from either Eden Hazard or Willian. Alvaro Morata opened the scoring against Spurs last weekend and he is the 11/4 bet365 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds taken at 8:36 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018). Chelsea's last four home fixtures in the league have made it to at least three goals, and that is despite them still having conceded an average of under a goal per game this term. They are only playing for a fifth-place finish now this season realistically.

West Ham News and Form

West Ham produced a good 3-0 win over Southampton last weekend to ease some big pressure from off their shoulders. Marko Arnautovic had an impressive game up front and for this game, he is a 3/1 bet365 anytime goalscorer option* (Betting Odds taken at 8:36 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018). The Hammers though have lost their last three on the road now in the top flight, overall only putting up two wins away from home in a W2 D5 L9 record. They have produced an average of 1.25 goals per away game, but their problems have been at the back where they have shipped an average of 2.3 goals per game and are without a clean sheet in their last six. West Ham are on an eight-match scoring streak on the road and over 2.5 goals at bet365 should have plenty of appeal in this one. 65% of West Ham’s goals conceded away from home this season have come in the second half of matches. They head into the weekend five points above the drop zone after last week's success.

Chelsea v West Ham Head to Head

The Irons pulled out a surprise three points with a 1-0 victory over Chelsea in December. Their record against Chelsea in this London derby fixture isn’t all that bad as things are even over the last five meetings with two wins each and a draw. Chelsea are unbeaten in their last eleven Premier League home games against the Hammers.

Chelsea v West Ham Betting Odds*

Chelsea 2/7, Draw 4/1, West Ham 11/1* (Betting Odds taken at 10:00 p.m. on April 2nd, 2018)

Chelsea v West Ham Predictions

Chelsea to win: The Blues have to come up with some kind of response and show some kind of fight. They haven’t been playing all that badly in patches really, they have just lacked some clinical finishing and concentration at the back. They will find gaps against the Hammers. Home win and over 2.5 goals.

Chelsea v Tottenham Predictions & Betting Odds – 1st April 2018

Chelsea
Chelsea v Tottenham Betting Tips - Premier League 1st April 4.00pm Chelsea and Tottenham renew their rivalry as they go toe to toe at Stamford Bridge on Sunday in the weekend's big Premier League clash. This is a big battle for a top-four place and Chelsea are going to have to pull out a win in this one at home to try and make a move on Tottenham. They start the fixture five points behind fourth-placed Spurs so have to make up some ground in this one. On the other hand, Spurs could pretty much guarantee themselves a top-four finish with a win.

Chelsea News and Form

The Blues step into one of their biggest pressure situations of the season. They have to record three points in this one to keep their hopes of landing a Champions League qualifying place alive. They are trailing Spurs by five points and need to make the most of this opportunity to close it a bit. The Blues are on a two-match winning streak at home at the moment after successes against West Brom and Crystal Palace. Their overall home record for this season is W10 D2 L3 for the season and they have averaged 1.7 goals per game on home soil. Their overall form in the league home and away has been poor (W2 L4) recently, but they have been stronger at home.

Chelsea v Tottenham 2018 Infographic

Each of the last three fixtures at Stamford Bridge have gone over 2.5 goals and that is 21/20 at bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 03:42 p.m. on March 27th, 2018) to happen in this one as well. Olivier Giroud is the 13/8 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market for the game, but Willian out at 5/2* (Betting Odds taken at 03:42 p.m. on March 27th, 2018) is always a tempting proposition and has been in sparkling form. He has scored two of Chelsea’s last three goals. This season, the current reigning champions only have two victories in eight previous games against top-six opponents.

Tottenham News and Form

As Chelsea have been far from rock solid at the back, despite Spurs missing Harry Kane as their main scoring threat, then the both teams to score option at bet365 for 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 03:42 p.m. on March 27th, 2018) still looks a good proposition. Tottenham can pretty lock lock down a top-four finish with a victory at the Bridge as Chelsea won’t make up eight points on them in seven games, if Spurs are successful on the weekend. Spurs are running in terrific form, holding a four-match winning streak and no loss since getting taken apart by Man City on December 16th. That is a twelve match unbeaten streak they have produced since then. Spurs are W8 D3 L4 on the road, winning four of their last six away from Wembley (D2). Spurs have averaged 1.9 goals per game away from home this season and have been their usual solid selves at the back, taking a clean sheet in 40% of their road games. They are currently running on an eighteen match scoring streak in the league. Even without Kane, they will still be a threat.    

Chelsea v Tottenham Head to Head

Chelsea collected a victory at Wembley when they took on Spurs, and that was their third win in the last four against them in all competitions (L1). Last season Chelsea ran out 2-1 winners at the Bridge in their league meeting with Spurs and are defending a proud unbeaten home record against Spurs in the Premier League. Chelsea have won three of their last four (D1) league home games against Spurs and overall home and away in all competitions are W4 D2 L1 in their last seven against them.

Chelsea v Tottenham Betting Odds*

Chelsea 5/4, Tottenham 11/5, Draw 23/10* (Betting Odds taken at 03:42 p.m. on March 27th, 2018)

Chelsea v Tottenham Predictions

Chelsea to win: Somewhere in there Chelsea have what it takes to put things together and produce a solid enough performance to win matches like this. They misfired badly in their big clash against Man City recently but can make amends with a win in this one. They have to leave it all out there.

Chelsea v Crystal Palace Predictions & Betting Odds – 10th March 2018

Chelsea
Chelsea v Crystal Palace Betting Tips - Premier League 10th March 5.30pm Chelsea are now trailing badly in the race for a top-four finish heading into the weekend five points adrift of fourth-placed Spurs after a loss against Manchester City on the weekend at the Etihad. Crystal Palace have cruelly been denied salvation points in their last two league games having conceded late goals in defeats against Spurs and Man Utd. Can they get something out of this trip to Stamford Bridge?

Chelsea News and Form

Can Chelsea put together a strong end of the season? They need to wake themselves up after having lost four of their last five league games as the season looks in danger of petering out. Three of those four defeats were out on the road and they haven’t been bad at home really. The Blues are W4 D1 L1 in their last six home fixtures in the top flight, thumping West Brom 3-0 in their last game there. Overall Chelsea have posted a W9 D2 L3 record this season at home in the Premier League where they have taken a clean sheet in 64% of their games. Chelsea to win to nil at bet365 is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken at 00:45 a.m on March 8th, 2018). They really need to get something going from either Alvaro Morata or Olivier Giroud up front because they have been lacking up top lately. Without someone stepping up, the chances of the Blues getting into the top four now are looking pretty slim. Chelsea have averaged 1.7 goals per game at home this season while they have conceded at just 0.7 per game which is good. They have taken a clean sheet in 64% of their home games this season. It is just lately they have become unravelled and unfocused with only one in their last five played. Both teams to score at bet365 is at 11/10.

Crystal Palace News and Form

Palace also needs to pick themselves up, not having been helped by big injury blows to the likes of Wilfried Zaha, Bakary Sako and Ruben Loftus-Cheek. While they have lost three in a row that doesn’t tell the entire picture because they have been playing well. Only late goals against them in their last two games defeats at home to Spurs and Manchester United have denied them points. Palace have fallen back in the drop zone, but there is still hope for them because aside from this and a game to come against Liverpool, they have a comfortable looking run-in. The Eagles are D1 L2 in their last three games on the road and overall home and away are winless in six now (D2 L4). They have won twice only on the road this season. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 7/10 odds* (betting odds taken at 00:45 a.m on March 8th, 2018) because Palace have managed to score in each of their last six away games. But they are without a clean sheet in any of their last five on the road though and have taken a clean sheet in just 21% of their away fixtures. 67% of their away goals have been in the second half of matches. Even a point out of this difficult away game would be a huge boost for them.

Chelsea v Crystal Palace Head to Head

Palace have actually done alright in this London derby recently against Chelsea in the Premier League. They have won their last two against them having claimed a victory at Selhurst Park over Chelsea back in October. Palace have actually won three of their last five against Chelsea in the top flight (L2) and each of those wins were by a 2-1 scoreline. The Blues have lost their last two home games against the Eagles.

Chelsea v Crystal Palace Betting Odds*

Chelsea 3/10, Draw 21/5, Crystal Palace 10/1* (Betting Odds taken at 00:22 a.m. on March 7th, 2018)

Chelsea v Crystal Palace Predictions

Chelsea to win: Palace are playing well enough to at least rattle Chelsea, but the Blues are a pretty stable force at home and can produce something in this one to get themselves three points on the board. It’s worth backing both teams to score though.

Manchester City v Chelsea Predictions & Betting Odds – 4th March 2018

Manchester City
Manchester City v Chelsea Betting Tips - Premier League 4th March 4.00pm After a damaging loss away at Manchester United last weekend, Chelsea’s hopes of a top-four finish are suddenly losing a bit tenuous as they go off to face league leaders Manchester City next on Sunday evening. Tough game for the Blues to handle and they aren’t carrying great form. As for Manchester City they just seem to destroy everything that comes into their path at the Etihad.

Manchester City News and Form

Will this be another one-sided home game for the Citizens who have won their last thirteen league matches at the Etihad? It is some stunning form that they have shown and have produced phenomenal scoring output having netted at least three goals in each of their last six home fixtures in the top flight. They have hit the 50 goal mark at home this season in the top flight having produced an average of 3.57 goals per game. The Citizens have conceded just the ten goals on home soil with a clean sheet in 36% of their home fixtures. 36% of their games at the Etihad have gone over 4.5 goals and over 3.5 goals at bet365 for this home game against Chelsea is at 13/8 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:02 a.m. on February 27th, 2018).

Manchester City v Chelsea 2018 Infographic

The Citizens have also been leading at half time in ten of their home games this season so a Man City/Man City half time/ full-time bet isn’t without its appeal. All but one of Man City’s home games have produced at least two goals this season and in the bet365 correct score market a Man City 3-1 option can be backed at 12/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:02 a.m. on February 27th, 2018).

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea are in a real battle for a top-four finish this season after losing at Old Trafford last weekend. That leaves them with a poor W1 L3 record in their last four league games and they are going into their toughest away game of the season now. That is back to back away defeats that they have suffered now and in total Chelsea have shipped nine goals in their last four games now and they are just W1 D2 L2 in their last five away games. They are struggling both for consistency and tactics at the moment and are nowhere near as together as they were last season. Overall they are W7 D3 L4 on the road and if Eden Hazard and Willian weren’t on their game from midfield, they would be a lot worse off. Alvaro Morata had another shocker on the weekend and nothing is really happening up top for them. Still, the Blues have averaged 1.8 goals per game away from home and they are on a four-match scoring steak away from the Bridge. But their defence is there for the taking at the moment and both teams to score at bet365 is at 7/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:02 a.m. on February 27th, 2018). They need to rally themselves to get back on track for a top four challenge.

Manchester City v Chelsea Head to Head

The Citizens took a 1-0 win out at Chelsea earlier this season and that was a response to having lost both of last season's meeting in the top flight against the Londoners. Manchester City are now 3-2 ahead int eh last five Premier League clashes but are only W1 D1 L2 in their last four on home soil against Chelsea.

Manchester City v Chelsea Betting Odds*

Man City 4/7, Draw 16/5, Chelsea 17/4* (Betting Odds taken at 06:05 a.m. on February 26th, 2018)

Manchester City v Chelsea Predictions

Manchester City to win: Manchester City will likely see off another challenger at the Etihad with some consummate ease. Chelsea are a bit all over the place at the moment and things just aren’t clicking for them. Manchester City to win by a two-goal margin looks a good option.

Manchester United v Chelsea Predictions & Betting Odds – 25th February 2018

Manchester United
Manchester United v Chelsea Betting Tips - Premier League 25th February 2.05pm It will be pretty interesting to see what goes down at Old Trafford on the weekend. Both of them had midweek UEFA Champions League action and it also brings together Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte who have had a war of words dragging on between them this season. The three points up for grabs in the fixture are huge in that tight top-four race and Chelsea will be looking to make up ground and draw level on points with the Red Devils with an away victory.

Manchester United News and Form

Manchester United have had a really good season at home in the Premier League and more often than not are a banker when playing there. Their record on home turf reads W10 D2 L1 and they have won their last two there with a clean sheet as well. Their defence has been tremendous with only the five goals given up at Old Trafford and Manchester United to win to nil with bet365 for this big duel is at 5/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:30 p.m. on February 21st, 2018).

Manchester United v Chelsea 2018 Infographic

They have been pretty efficient going forward as well with an average of over two goals per home game behind them and they have taken a clean sheet in 77% of fixtures at Old Trafford. They have won their last three home games in the top flight without having shipped a single goal. However, they looked really poor in a defeat out at Newcastle in their last away game, suffering a 1-0 reverse. It added to the sequence of seven of their last eight games going under 2.5 goals. They will have had a day’s less rest than Chelsea ahead of this one and looking at the recent history between them, under 2.5 goals at Bet365 has some big appeal for the fixture. Romelu Lukaku has scored in his last two home fixtures.

Chelsea News and Form

Antonio Conte produced a tactical masterclass in midweek as Chelsea held Barcelona 1-1 draw at the Bridge against Barcelona. However, back on the domestic scene, the Blues have not been travelling all that well with just the one victory in their last four on the road (D2 L1). In their last away game in the top flight, they went to Vicarage Road to face Watford and put in a shocker of a performance to lose 4-1. Overall this season the Blues have a healthy W7 D3 L3 record away from Stamford Bridge but they have been off the boil away from home recently. Going forward they have returned a healthy average of 1.9 goals per game and they have been leading at half time in six of their thirteen away games. They have Alvaro Morata back from injury and have the added option of Olivier Giroud now and they are both at 9/4 in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market for the game* (Betting Odds taken at 4:30 p.m. on February 21st, 2018). Chelsea really needs the three points to strengthen their position in the top four race this season. But with them only having gone W2 D2 L2 in their last six league games they are going to have to come up with another of those tactical masterpieces of Conte's.

Manchester United v Chelsea Head to Head

Chelsea have been dominating the Premier League head to head for the last few years against the Red Devils. Including their 1-0 success over United at Stamford Bridge earlier this season, the Blues are W5 D4 L1 against the Red Devils in the top flight. At Old Trafford, United won this corresponding fixture last season and they are undefeated in four at home against the Blues, but only W1 D3 against Chelsea in the league there. Both teams have scored in just one of the last seven match ups in all competitions.

Manchester United v Chelsea Betting Odds*

Man Utd 6/5, Draw 23/10, Chelsea 12/5* (Betting Odds taken at 11:30 p.m. on February 20th, 2018)

Manchester United v Chelsea Predictions

Draw: There is not likely going to be much between the two sides on the day. Both have had some uninspiring results recently in the top flight and this will likely be a tight game at OT. The two sides may just end up cancelling each other out on the day and a 1-1 correct score has plenty to offer.

Chelsea v West Brom Predictions & Betting Odds – 12th February 2018

Chelsea
Chelsea v West Brom Betting Tips - Premier League 12th February 8.00pm This will be another big test for Chelsea as they look to avoid three straight league defeats. All does not seem to well at Stamford Bridge at the moment and Antonio Conte looks to be hanging on to his job by his fingernails. Will they relieve some tension with a home win against bottom side West Brom? The Baggies have lost their last two games and last weekend's defeat at the Hawthorns against Southampton was a bit of a hammer blow for them overall. They desperately need points but don't have form at the Bridge.

Chelsea News and Form

The Blues have been going through a tough time at the moment and they have lost their last two Premier League games now and both were pretty epic collapses as well. After a harrowing 3-0 loss against Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge, the Blues just totally fell apart in a 4-1 loss at Watford last Monday after Tiemoue Bakayoko had gotten himself sent off in the first half of the match. So Chelsea, across all competitions have gone just W2 D4 L3 in their last nine games, which isn’t good by their usual high standards. Their defence has been all over the place lately with only one clean sheet in their last four now in all competitions, so immediately it is worth looking at both teams to score at Ladbrokes for odds of 3/4* (Betting Odds taken on February 7th, 2018 at 6:50 p.m.). Chelsea’s home form has been pretty solid for most of the season and their blowout against Bournemouth there recently saw them end an eight-match unbeaten streak of home form that they were on (W7 D1). But they have gone winless in their last two there now (D1 L1), failing to score in those two as well. So they have been strangely lapsing at the back lately and their offence isn’t going well and Eden Hazard, who got their consolation against Watford, as their shortest priced goalscorer option at even money* (Betting Odds taken on February 7th, 2018 at 6:50 p.m.)

West Brom News and Form

West Brom are in heaps of trouble now after losing at home against Southampton last weekend in the Premier League. That was a blow against a side who were also under relegation pressure. That is back to back defeats for West Brom in the Premier League now and they have collected only one win in their last twenty-four league games so they are looking a bit desperate right now. They can’t even look to away form for any solace as well because they are winless in six (D2 L4) away from the Hawthorns in the top flight and they have gone without a clean sheet in any of their last four on the road. That’s a twelve match witness streak of form that they are on now away from home in the Premier League overall and they have managed just seven league goals away from the Hawthorns all season. West Brom have conceded at an average of 1.5 goals per game as well. The great revival that they hoped would happen under Alan Pardew simply has not materialised. They have conceded 68% of their goal this season in the second half of matches, so a Draw/Chelsea half time/ full-time wage at Ladbrokes for 14/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 7th, 2018 at 6:50 p.m.) is a decent proposition. They are catching Chelsea out of form at the moment, but their own doesn’t look strong enough to get them a much needed three points.

Chelsea v West Brom Head to Head

There was a big 4-0 win for the Blues out at the Hawthorns earlier this season and that leaves them riding a three-match winning streak against West Brom in the Premier League now. Each of those three wins for Chelsea were with a clean sheet too. Chelsea are undefeated in their last five games against West Brom in the top flight now (W4 D1) and they are unbeaten at the Bridge against the Baggies since a 1-0 League Cup defeat way back in 1984. Chelsea have scored exactly two goals in three of their last four home games against the Baggies.

Chelsea v West Brom Betting Odds*

Chelsea 4/11, Draw 19/5, West Brom 8/1* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 6:28 p.m.)

Chelsea v West Brom Predictions

Chelsea to win: The Blues have looked totally devoid of confidence and a game plan lately. But for the first time in a while, they have had an entire week off and that could see them come back refreshed enough to get a win over a West Brom side who have been fighting but floundering still at the same time.

Watford v Chelsea Predictions & Betting Odds – 5th February 2018

Chelsea
Watford v Chelsea Betting Tips - Premier League 5th February 8.00pm Chelsea will be looking for a big response after producing a shocker at Stamford Bridge in midweek where they lost 3-0 against Bournemouth. The Blues couldn't field a recognised striker for the match, but managed to draft in Olivier Giroud from Arsenal to give them a boost going forward. Watford drew 0-0 with Stoke in midweek, claiming their first point under new boss Javi Gracia. Will they be able to strike while Chelsea’s confidence is low?

Watford News and Form

The Hornets got themselves a point in midweek with a 0-0 draw out at Stoke. They are winless in their last five league games now though and since beating Newcastle back on November 25th, they have picked up just one league win. They've actually only won three times at Vicarage Road this season and they have taken just the one win in their last six at home, a 2-1 win over Leicester on December 26th. They may have failed to hit the back of the net in their last two league games, but they are on a seven-match scoring streak at home. However, they have conceded in each of their last six at home as well, so take a look at over 2.5 goals at William Hill for the game* (Betting Odds taken on February 1st, 2018 at 2:01 a.m.). There is a trend as each of Watford’s last four home fixtures have gone above the line. The Hornets have conceded an average of just over two goals per home game. Their league position up in 11th may look good, but they are only the four points away from the drop zone. A win here against the Blues would certainly lift their spirits.

Chelsea News and Form

What a nightmare the Blues had in midweek as they just totally fell apart and lost 3-0 at home against Bournemouth. Nothing at all was going for them and it was a shockingly bad defensive performance. The Blues didn’t have recognised striker to put on the pitch but in grabbing Olivier Giroud from Arsenal, they at least have an option to go with now, while Alvaro Morata works his way back to full fitness. Giroud is at even money odds at William Hill* (Betting Odds taken on February 1st, 2018 at 2:01 a.m.) to score on the weekend for his new club. Chelsea are unbeaten in their last four away games, winning two and drawing two of them. They recorded a huge positive in a 4-0 win at Brighton in their last away game and Chelsea have suffered just two league away defeats all season, both of those were only by a one-goal margin as well. Do they have response in them to what happened in midweek? Chelsea have taken six clean sheets in their last eight league games so that is a positive for them Chelsea to win to nil at William Hill, may still have some appeal and their midweek loss will have left a good price riding on that option. They will have a point to prove.

Watford v Chelsea Head to Head

The head to head is dominated by the Blues who have remained unbeaten in their last thirteen games against Watford now (W10D3). Chelsea have won three of their last four at Vicarage Road and home and away are on a three-match winning streak against the Hornets. The last time that Chelsea lost to Watford was back in the 1999 Premiership. Seven of the last eight meetings between the two clubs have gone over 2.5 goals.

Watford v Chelsea Betting Odds*

Chelsea 1/2, Draw 16/5, Watford 11/2* (Betting Odds taken on February 1st, 2018 at 2:01 a.m.)

Watford v Chelsea Predictions

Chelsea to win: No doubt Chelsea will be under a bit of pressure in this one. The midweek game didn’t go well at all for them, but there were a lot of distractions around and their lack of depth has been telling. Still, Watford are not exactly in form and while they will challenge, may fall short. Away win and both teams to score.

Chelsea v Bournemouth Predictions & Betting Odds – 31st January 2018

Chelsea
Chelsea v Bournemouth Betting Tips - Premier League 31st January 3.00pm The Blues continue their heavy work load as they stay at the Bridge to host Bournemouth in midweek. Chelsea have been in cracking form on home soil in the top flight recently, but there have been signs of tiredness from them along the way recently. They get to challenge a Bournemouth side who have improved themselves to go unbeaten in their last five league games, but the Cherries haven't had the taste of victory out on the road for a while. But can they do what Leicester did to Chelsea recently at the Bridge and battle to a point?

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea saw off Newcastle in the FA Cup on the weekend to move ahead and it is immediately back to the Bridge in midweek as they play host to Bournemouth in the Premier League. Chelsea are W8 D2 L2 at home this season in the top flight and they are unbeaten in their last eight there, a seven-match winning streak there being snapped with a 0-0 draw with Leicester in their last home fixture. So they are carrying strong home form and have been tough to score against. Chelsea have earned a clean sheet in each of their last four home games and have collected six in their last seven league games home and away. It’s been impressive stuff and Chelsea to win to nil at BetVictor is naturally going to have some appeal in this game. Chelsea have only conceded seven home goals in total this season at the Bridge. Going forward they have averaged 1.75 goals per game at home in the league. The Blues have beaten all bottom half of the table opposition they have faced at the Bridge this season, taking a clean sheet in all but one of those five opponents. Chelsea though have only scored more than one goal in four of their last six home games and a Chelsea to win by a one-goal margin because of that will have some big appeal as well as Chelsea 1-0 correct score.

Bournemouth News and Form

Bournemouth suffered 1-0 reverses this at Spurs and Manchester United so they have battled well and haven’t been trounced in some of their tougher away games. They don't have a clean sheet in any of their last even games now and from their four visits to current top six sides this season, they haven’t managed to net a single goal. A half-time draw at BetVictor looks a decent proposition though for this because the Cherries have been level at the break in four of their last five games and, because Chelsea aren’t running riot in front of goal particularly in the league. The Cherries are unbeaten in their last five games in the league (W2 D3) but the two wins in that sequence both happened at home, leaving them winless in their last six top-flight road games (D4 L2) and they have been defensively leaky, conceding at least two goals in four of their last five away from the Vitality. Both teams not to score at BetVictor is a decent option for the game, despite the Cherries looking competitive, they have only scored nine away goals at the end of the day and they are going up against a very good home defence.

Chelsea v Bournemouth Head to Head

Chelsea have won three of their last four games at Stamford Bridge over the Cherries (L1). Chelsea have already recorded a league win and an EFL Cup win over Bournemouth this season and they are Chelsea are 8-2 up with no drawn match from their ten previous clashes. The Blues have three clean sheets in their five previous home games against the Cherries. Both of Bournemouth’s wins over Chelsea were by a 1-0 scoreline.

Chelsea v Bournemouth Betting Odds*

Chelsea 2/7, Draw 21/4, Bournemouth 11/1* (Betting Odds taken on January 28th, 2018 at 6:18 p.m.)

Chelsea v Bournemouth Predictions

Chelsea to win: The Blues have been a very good home side and they aren’t likely to lose this one. The Cherries have been doing much better but they haven’t found a winning touch on the road. This could be tight so back the Blues to win it by a one-goal margin.
