Chelsea v Bournemouth Predictions & Betting Odds – 1st September 2018

Chelsea
Chelsea v Bournemouth Betting Tips - Premier League, 1st September 3.00pm This may well be the most entertaining game of the weekend in the Premier League. Chelsea have opened with three straight wins and they are favourites for this Stamford Bridge clash. But they will be facing a Bournemouth side who have also had a tremendously positive start to the new season as they have remained unbeaten with seven points from their three games. They also recorded a big away win at Chelsea last season. Read our predictions for Chelsea v Bournemouth.

Chelsea News and Form

It has been a really positive start from the Blues who have made it three wins from three. They were out at St James’ Park against Newcastle last weekend and despite totally dominating possession, earning 81% of it in the game, the Blues still needed a late goal to get the three points. To be fair it was a tough game with Newcastle sat with 10 men behind the ball all match. Still, that is eight goals from three games for Chelsea and at least two in each of them. Over 3.5 is a decent option for Chelsea v Bournemouth bettings tips at 11/10 as this could be wide open. There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Chelsea's last four games. Eden Hazard looks confident and enjoying his football under the new manager. He has been their best player by some distance and he is as short as 8/13 in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). The Blues are at full strength for this fixture and so Sarri isn’t likely to change up too much. Chelsea’s previous home game this season saw them gate a late goal to beat Arsenal in a 3-2 thriller. Last season in the top flight the Blues posted a W11 D4 L4 home record but that is just the two wins in their last four (D2) that they have played there. In the bet365 correct score market a Chelsea 3-1 has some decent appeal at a bigger 10/1 price* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). The Blues still look as if they are a work in progress at the back.

Bournemouth News and Form

The Cherries have been equally as bright to kick off the season. They have dropped just the two points in their three games. They were under pressure at 2-0 down in the second half of their game against Everton last weekend but showed great character to come back and land a 2-2 draw. Bournemouth have fired off exactly two goals that the Cherries in each of their games so far this season, so they should contribute well in this one. Importantly in midweek in their EFL Cup success over the MK Dons, they got summer signings Diego Rico and Jefferson Lerma into action for the first time. So their increasing fitness could see them push for starting places on the weekend. Much like Chelsea, the Cherries like to play attacking football and they have reason to be confident with two wins in their last three trips to Stamford Bridge. Bournemouth didn’t have the greatest of times on the road last season in the top flight with a W4 D6 L9 record but Chelsea was the only one of the top six sides who they did beat on the road. That is back to back away wins in the top flight that they are running on and overall their form (home and away combined) is W4 D1. Both teams to score is at 4/7 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). We can bolster the expectancy of goals here because there have been over 2.5 goals in 19 of Bournemouth's last 24 games while they themselves have scored at least two goals in each of their last four. Callum Wilson, who has started very well with two goals in three games, is a 13/5 anytime goalscorer option for the Cherries* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.).

Chelsea v Bournemouth Head to Head

Bournemouth took a tremendous 3-0 win at Chelsea last season in this corresponding fixture. Chelsea earned the win between them on the south coast. It means that in the six previous Premier League meetings Chelsea are W4 L2 against Bournemouth. Four of the last five between them in the league have gone over 2.5 goals and Chelsea are just W1 L2 in their three previous Premier League home games against the Cherries, failing to score in the two defeats.

Newcastle v Chelsea Predictions & Betting Odds – 26th August 2018

Newcastle
Newcastle v Chelsea Betting Tips - Premier League, 26th August 4.00pm The Magpies squandered a huge chance to collect three points last weekend on a trip to Cardiff. They missed a last minute penalty to give them the three points. They get back to home soil this weekend as they face Chelsea, who they beat at the back end of last term. Chelsea though have looked pretty good in attack this season, but there are clear issues for the new manager to try and sort out at the back. Read our predictions for Newcastle v Chelsea.

Newcastle News and Form

Newcastle are on the hunt for their first league win of the new season, having put just a point on the board so far. They suffered a 2-1 home loss against Spurs on the w opening weekend of the season and then played out a 0-0 draw down in Cardiff last weekend. Kenedy missed a last-minute penalty kick to secure three away points for them. For our Newcastle v Chelsea predictions we are looking at the game to go over 2.5 goals at 17/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 22nd, 2018 at 11:21 p.m.). Joselu has Newcastle's only league goal this season and the striker is their shortest priced option in the anytime goalscorer market. He has pretty much kept Salomon Rondon out of the starting eleven. If Newcastle don't get anything out of this game that puts big pressure on them as they did so little in the summer transfer market to try and improve their squad. The Magpies had a W8 D4 L7 record on home soil last term, averaging just over a goal per game and they did concede at under a goal per game. Their possession rate this season on average is just 45% and Chelsea will push up high against them and get them rattled. The Magpies look a bit short in the final third but still, because Chelsea's defence was wide open last weekend, both teams to score is at 10/11 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 22nd, 2018 at 11:21 p.m.). The Magpies have produced 13.5 shots per game on average which pales to that of the 18.5 shots per game that the Blues have come up with this season.

Chelsea News and Form

Back to back wins for the new has given Chelsea a confident start. They picked up a 3-0 away win at Huddersfield on the opening weekend of the season and then produced another three goals as they saw it out against Arsenal last weekend 3-2 in the London derby. We have already seen some bold, cavalier attacking performances from them and that is what to expect under new boss Maurizio Sarri. Their defence has to catch up in terms of quality though as they were dreadful last weekend against Arsenal. The Newcastle attack may not threaten them as much as Arsenal's did though. We are going to look at the Chelsea 2-1 correct score option at 8/1 odds for our Newcastle v Chelsea prediction. There is a trend there because there have been over 2.5 goals scored in eight of Chelsea’s last ten league away games. Other than a doubt over Cesc Fabregas, the Blues should be at full strength. Summer signing Mateo Kovacic came off the bench last weekend but could get a start. He, Kante and Jorginho look as if they could form a formidable team in the midfield area for Chelsea. Eden Hazard has come off the bench in both league games so far as he has been eased back into action after a busy summer at the World Cup. He has still come up with two assists already this season and is likely to get a start in this one. Alvaro Morata opened his account for the season as he netted against the Gunners and he is the 9/2 joint first goalscorer favourite alongside teammate Olivier Giroud* (Betting Odds were taken from August 22nd, 2018 at 11:21 p.m.). Away from Stamford Bridge last season Chelsea posted a W10 D3 L6 record and they have won four of their last five on the road (L1) the loss in that sequence in their final league game of last season, yes, at Newcastle.

Newcastle v Chelsea Head to Head

There was a home win for each of these last season in their Premier League meetings and both scored exactly three goals in their respective wins. Chelsea also beat Newcastle at Stamford Bridge in an FA Cup tie last term too. Chelsea have lost just one of their last six games against Newcastle in all competitions (W4 D1 L1) but they are winless in their last five visits to St James’ Park (D1 L4). Each of the last five meetings between them in all competitions (and seven of the last eight) have all gone over 2.5 goals.

Newcastle v Chelsea Betting Odds*

Chelsea 8/13 Draw 14/5 Newcastle 9/2 * (Betting Odds were taken from August 22nd, 2018 at 11:21 p.m.)

Newcastle v Chelsea Predictions

Chelsea to win: With Newcastle not having produced much as an attacking force yet, we are expecting them to get unravelled by the pace and power that Chelsea have shown. The Blues will grow more and more as an attacking force this season but they should already have enough in them to secure three points in this one. Away win.

Chelsea v Arsenal Predictions & Betting Odds – 18th August 2018

Chelsea
Chelsea v Arsenal Betting Tips - Premier League, 18th August 5.30pm The big London derby is set for Saturday evening in the next round of Premier League action. There is going to be pressure on Arsenal who go into their second tough game already having lost heavily against Manchester City last weekend. Chelsea collected three points from their efforts against Huddersfield last weekend and will be looking to make the most of home advantage. Read our predictions for the Chelsea v Arsenal fixture.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea recorded a 3-0 road win at out Huddersfield last weekend to give new boss Maurizio Sarri a positive start to life in the Premier League. It was comfortable for them really with first-half goals from N’Golo Kante and a penalty from Jorginho setting the Blues up for success. Pedro netted in the second half to round out the action. We are expecting this London derby to be a cagey affair with pressure on both new managers in a game of high importance. Under 2.5 goals is at 11/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 15th, 2018 at 11:36 p.m.) for the game. Three of the last four between these at the Bridge have gone that way, while each of Chelsea’s last three home games in the Premier League ended under 2.5 goals as well. On top of that, the Blues have a clean sheet in five of their last six home games against Arsenal in all competitions. Chelsea started with Alvaro Morata up front as Olivier Giroud was given an extra break after his summer antics at the World Cup with France. Morata still looked out of place though and Chelsea are lacking that goalscorer edge. That having been said, Morata is the 7/5 joint anytime goalscorer favourite alongside teammate Giroud. It was a hugely disappointing season overall from the Blues last term but they did come up with a W11 D4 L4 record at Stamford Bridge. They averaged 1.6 goals per home game last season at home, while they conceded an average of under a goal per game, taking a clean sheet in 53% of their league home fixtures. [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"]

Arsenal News and Form

Both games between these two at Stamford Bridge last season ended goalless and so looking at the bet365 correct score market for the game, the 14/1 odds on the 0-0 appeal. However we are looking at Chelsea potentially edging this game and a Chelsea 1-0 is trading at 17/2 odds with bigger appeal* (Betting Odds were taken on August 15th, 2018 at 11:36 p.m.). Arsenal started their new league season on home soil last weekend in a tough one against Manchester City. The Gunners failed that test, going down 2-0 against the reigning champions. The players didn’t look tactically sound over what they were supposed to be doing and Emery stated that they had not played the way that he had wanted them to. The Gunners tried to play the ball out from the back, but they just got it all wrong time and time again and kept putting themselves in trouble. This will be a big test for them as they were terrible out on the road picking up a W4 D4 L11 record last term. That is seven defeats in their last eight road games in the Premier League now, so punters may have a hard time trusting them. As a positive though the Gunners are undefeated in their last six games against the Blues in all competitions. They have at their disposal one of Europe’s most prolific scorers and that is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who is a 5/4 anytime goalscorer option for them* (Betting Odds were taken on August 15th, 2018 at 11:36 p.m.). Arsenal produced just the three shots on target against Manchester City last weekend.

Chelsea v Arsenal Head to Head

The two London clubs met up five times last season across all competitions. All but one of those ended in a draw as well, the exception being a 2-1 home win that Arsenal took over Chelsea in the EFL Cup. Both games between them at Stamford Bridge last season ended in 0-0 draws. Chelsea are undefeated in their last six home games against Arsenal in the Premier League with a strong W5 D1 record.

Chelsea v Arsenal Betting Odds*

Chelsea 4/5 Draw 3/1 Arsenal 3/1 * (Betting Odds were taken on August 15th, 2018 at 11:36 p.m.) Chelsea v Arsenal Predictions Chelsea to win: The Blues can just get the edge in this one as Arsenal looked a bit unsure of what they were doing under Unai Emery last weekend. The Blues looked a little more assured of themselves and for our betting tips on Chelsea v Arsenal, we are going to back them to get the job done by a one-goal margin.

Huddersfield v Chelsea Predictions & Betting Odds – 11th August 2018

Huddersfield
Huddersfield v Chelsea Betting Tips - Premier League, 11th August 3.00pm It has been a summer of ill-preparation for Chelsea really. The saga of their managerial change just dragged on and on, leaving new boss Maurizio Sarri with not much time to implement his plans nor build the squad that he wants. Will the Blues have a tough afternoon as they head out on the road on the weekend for their first Premier League fixture of the season? Huddersfield did a tremendous job of staying up last term. Can the cause an upset here?

Huddersfield News and Form

Huddersfield can be really proud of their efforts last season as they got themselves safe which was their number one goal. Inside their final three games, they did take a draw against both Man City and Chelsea to help ensure survival which just epitomises the style and work ethic that David Wagner has installed at the club. The Terriers collected a W6 D5 L8 record on home soil last season in the top flight but overall one of their big problems was a lack of goals. They managed just an average of 0.8 goals per home game last season and we don’t see their output really going up all that much more. We are looking under 2.5 goals at bet365 for 17/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 8th, 2018 at 8:12 p.m.) for our Huddersfield v Chelsea betting tips. We can back that up with a stat as well because each of Huddersfield's last ten games in the English top flight have finished under the goal line. Troubling for them though they have failed to score in 5 of their last 7 home games in the top flight. Overall home and away they won just one of their last ten.

Chelsea News and Form

The Blues don’t look to be a very settled club at the moment and new boss Maurizio Sarri has some work to do there. He has admitted he may need around three months to get things going. He hasn’t had a lot of time to settle into the club and he hasn’t got the greatest of squads at his disposal either, certainly, it doesn't look like a title-winning one. Their defence has been a bit of a concern over the summer and they are crying out for a goalscorer as well with Alvaro Morata looking so short on confidence. We are going to take a punt on both teams not to score at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 8th, 2018 at 8:12 p.m.) as we see this being a low scoring affair. There just hasn’t been the major moves from them in the summer transfer market which is really going to take them forward. By the same token they aren’t likely to trust their youngsters. So there could be a tricky start to the new season for Chelsea who earned a W10 D3 L6 record on the road last season but they lost four of their last seven games away from home.

Huddersfield v Chelsea Head to Head

Chelsea collected four points from their two matches in the top flight against the Terriers last season. The Blues banked a 3-1 win on the road before a 1-1 draw back at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea are undefeated in their last four games against the Terriers but both teams have scored in each of the last four meetings.

Huddersfield v Chelsea Betting Odds*

Chelsea 8/13 Draw 14/5 Huddersfield 9/2 * (Betting Odds were taken on August 8th, 2018 at 8:12 p.m.)

Huddersfield v Chelsea Predictions

Draw: We can’t see past the draw in this one. Chelsea haven’t looked anything special and so far there has been no sign of Sarri’s much-lauded style happening. That is going to need more time. So there is a great chance for the Terriers to pull out the stops with some early season enthusiasm and land a point here.

Newcastle v Chelsea Predictions & Betting Odds – 13th May 2018

Newcastle
Newcastle v Chelsea Betting Tips - Premier League 13th May 3.00pm Chelsea didn’t do their top four hopes any favours by being held to a draw at home against Huddersfield in midweek. Now to finish in the Champions League spots they have to win this and hope that Liverpool loses at home to Brighton. So their chance may well have gone but they are facing a Newcastle side who have lost their last four games after being edged out by Spurs in midweek.

Newcastle News and Form

The Magpies have slipped down to a four-match losing sequence of form having gone down 1-0 at Tottenham in midweek. Three of their last four league losses have been by that 1-0 scoreline which may be worth eyeing up. Chelsea to win by a one-goal margin at Paddy Power is at 12/5 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:46 a.m.). The alternative would be to go and look at a Chelsea 1-0 correct score option which is at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:46 a.m.). Frankly, Chelsea don’t look very potent at all going forward so both options look pretty solid. Newcastle have come up with the one goal in their last four matches but their overall form at St James’ Park isn’t all that bad really. Before a surprise loss at home against West Brom in their last home fixture, the Magpies had put together a four-match winning streak and were unbeaten in seven at St James’ Park before a loss against West Brom in their last home fixture. Overall they are W7 D4 L7 for the season on home soil. They have beaten two of the current top six this season at home, having taken down Arsenal and Manchester United.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea are unbeaten in six, winning four of those but they screwed up a bit at home in a 1-1 draw with Huddersfield in midweek which saw their slim chances of getting into the top four get even narrower. They just don’t look to have much going in front of goal. They create good pressure in games but the end product really isn't there. They need a proven goalscorer. Chelsea have won each of their last three games away from home and all of those were by a one-goal margin. Chelsea are W10 D3 L5 for the season away from home. They have averaged 1.87 goals per game on their travels and 67% of their road games have ended over 2.5 goals. Given the way that both of these are going at the moment, this game doesn’t look like being a high scoring one. Under 2.5 goals at Paddy Power is at even money odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:46 a.m.). Chelsea can boast the fourth best defensive in the Premier League as it stands and the third best away record of all teams. They have to win this and hope that Liverpool loses at home against Brighton to sneak their way into fourth.

Newcastle v Chelsea Head to Head

The Blues hosted Newcastle twice this season at Stamford Bridge, beating the Magpies in the league meeting and in the FA Cup. Chelsea scored exactly three goals in both of those successes. Chelsea have gone W4 D1 in their last five games against the Magpies in all competitions while both teams have scored in three of the last four. There was a 2-2 draw between them in their last meeting at St James Park.

Newcastle v Chelsea Betting Odds*

Chelsea 1/2, Draw 3/1, Newcastle 6/1* (Betting Odds taken at 10:55 p.m. on May 9th, 2018)

Newcastle v Chelsea Predictions

Chelsea to win: The Blues have good form going against Newcastle and have handled the Magpies well enough twice this season already. The Blues aren’t overly convincing but may be able to do enough against the Magpies.

Chelsea v Huddersfield Predictions & Betting Odds – 9th May 2018

Chelsea
Chelsea v Huddersfield Betting Tips - Premier League 9th May 7.45pm Chelsea produced a home win over Liverpool on Sunday to keep their hopes of a top-four finish alive. A win here in midweek puts them level on points with Liverpool. They would still need Spurs or Liverpool to slip up though to finish in the Champions League spots. Huddersfield earned a surprise point at Man City on Sunday and they only need the one more to guarantee that they will be playing top flight football next term.

Chelsea News and Form

The Blues are on a four-match winning streak in the premier league now after having beaten Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. That was a big win too because it keeps their faint hopes of a top-four finish alive. This current four-match winning streak equals their best run of the season and in it they have fought back from being behind against Southampton and Burnley in that sequence as well as holding off Liverpool on the weekend. To get into the top four, something that looked like having no chance of happening just recently, the Blues would need to win their final two games and hope that either Liverpool or Spurs don’t win their remaining games. Even though they still look a shadow of the side that won the league last season, they are finishing strongly and Chelsea to win to nil back at the Bridge in this one is at 8/11 odds with William Hill* (Betting Odds taken at 2:05 a.m. on May 7th, 2018). Chelsea’s home form is W11 D3 L4 for the season and they are W3 D1 L1 in their last five at the Bridge. In the William Hill correct score market a Chelsea 1-0 is at 13/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 2:05 a.m. on May 7th, 2018) as Chelsea don’t look like running riot in front of goal at the moment. It’s the result that counts now.

Huddersfield News and Form

Not many would have backed the Terriers to get a point at Manchester City on the weekend. But the Champions were in party mood and never got going in the game which allowed the resilient Huddersfield to battle their way to a very good point. One more point guarantees that they will be in the top flight next season. So it is likely that they will visit the Bridge in defensive mode. The Terriers have drawn their last two away games in the top flight and have won just one of their last nine games on the road (D2 L6). Across the course of the season on their travels, they have only recorded three wins and they have failed to score in any of their nine visits to current top ten sides this season (D2 L7). Both teams not to score with William Hill at 8/13 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 2:05 a.m. on May 7th, 2018) looks the obvious option, therefore. There have been just the eleven away goals from Huddersfield this season but a credit to their defence in that each of their last four have gone under 2.5 goals. They are almost across the finish line. Can they finish the job in this one?

Chelsea v Huddersfield Head to Head

Chelsea took a 3-1 win over Huddersfield earlier in the season and that is back to back wins by that scoreline that they have taken against them. The other was an FA Cup home game against them in 2008. Going back, Chelsea are on a seven-match winning streak against the Terriers in all competitions. The earlier Premier League meetings this season was the first league clash since the 1983/84 Old Division 2.

Chelsea v Huddersfield Betting Odds*

Chelsea 1/6, Draw 11/2, Huddersfield 18/1* (Betting Odds taken at 00:06 a.m. on May 6th, 2018)

Chelsea v Huddersfield Predictions

Chelsea to win: The Terriers clearly aren’t just going to roll over at the Bridge and could test Chelsea's patience. But the Blues do have the edge and know what a win would mean for them. Look for a home win by a one-goal margin.

Chelsea v Liverpool Predictions & Betting Odds – 6th May 2018

Chelsea
Chelsea v Liverpool Betting Tips - Premier League 6th May 4.30pm A big high profile match for Sunday to round off the weekend, but there’s not all that much riding on it really. Even if Chelsea could break out a win in this one and close to within three points of Liverpool with a game in hand over the Reds, the goal difference that Liverpool have is worth an extra point. So Chelsea’s faint hopes of a top-four finish really will be swept away by a failure to win here, while Liverpool are just looking to consolidate a final four finish.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea have produced home form of W10 D3 L4 for the season. They are going to have fresher legs than Liverpool are as well. It hasn’t been the greatest of home seasons from the Blues, especially lately as they are just W2 D1 L2 in their last five league games at the Bridge. They haven’t been at home since April 8th when they played out a 1-1 draw with West Ham. They have been on the road for each of their last three games which they won each of and all by a one-goal margin. Chelsea to win by a one-goal margin at bet365 is at 3/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:55 p.m. on May 1st, 2018). The Blues have averaged 1.65 goals per game at home this season and they have scored in each of their last four. Chelsea have conceded in each of their last three home games though, so both teams to score looks an obvious selection. Eden Hazard is worth a look in the anytime goalscorer market as he looks back to his very best lately. Chelsea still have a mathematical chance at a top-four finish heading into the weekend, but it is highly unlikely to pan out that way.

Liverpool News and Form

Liverpool could be at a disadvantage because of all their Champions League distractions lately. Because of that, they have been rotating their squad heavily for domestic matches which is perhaps part of the reason why they are only W1 D3 in their last four games in the English top flight. It’s easy to assume that they have more interested in Europe. Liverpool have picked up a W1 D1 L2 in their last four road games which is part of an overall W9 D5 L4 record for the term away from Anfield. The Reds haven’t produced very well on the road against the other top six sides this season, losing at Man City, Man Utd and Spurs while drawing at Arsenal. They conceded at least two goals in each of those as well. Over 3.5 goals is at 7/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:55 p.m. on May 1st, 2018). Liverpool are averaging over two goals per away game this term with Mo Salah top scoring for them with thirteen away goals. He’s going to be heavily backed against his former club in the anytime goalscorer market. If Liverpool do suffer a loss here that puts Chelsea three points behind them with a game in hand over the Merseysiders. But even if the Blues were to win that game in hand, they can’t match the Reds in the goal difference department.

Chelsea v Liverpool Head to Head

Three of the last four meetings in the Premier League between Chelsea and Liverpool have ended in a 1-1 draw. Liverpool are on a six-match unbeaten streak of league form against the Blues, winning two and drawing four. The Reds have won their last two league visits to Chelsea as well and both teams have scored in each of the last seven Premier League games.

Chelsea v Liverpool Betting Odds*

Chelsea 23/20, Liverpool 11/5, Draw 5/2* (Betting Odds taken at 9:44 p.m. on April 30th, 2018)   

Chelsea v Liverpool Predictions

Chelsea to win: The Blues have home advantage and they are the fresher of the two sides because of all the extra work that Liverpool have done in Europe lately. Look for Chelsea to continue their end of season flourish with a win.

Swansea v Chelsea Predictions & Betting Odds – 28th April 2018

Swansea
Swansea v Chelsea Betting Tips - Premier League 28th April 5.30pm Swansea still have the threat of relegation looming over them and games like this against a top-five side don’t help. Swansea were pretty much obliterated by champions Man City at the Etihad last weekend. They have to shake that off and try and raise themselves on home soil. After their FA Cup semi-final last weekend, Chelsea will be on the hunt for league points to try and put pressure on Spurs for a fourth-place finish.

Swansea News and Form

Swansea’s match against Man City on the weekend was a disposable fixture for them. They would have known that they were unlikely to get anything from it and they lost it 5-0. But they get back to the Liberty Stadium on the weekend where they are on a five-match undefeated streak of form (W4 D1). So they can take some confidence out of that and even a point in this one would offer some comfort as they start the weekend four points clear of the drop zone. So there is still a threat of relegation there for them so they have to stay focused. Swansea are W6 D3 L7 for the season at home and since Carlos Carvalhal came in as the boss he has made a huge difference. Swansea are on a five-match scoring streak at home in the league and both teams to score at bet365 is at 11/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 1:14 a.m. on April 24th, 2018). The Swans are averaging a goal per home game this term and less than 40% of their home fixture have produced at least three goals. So this could be a low scoring affair as the Swans try and avoid defeat more than anything. 69% of Swansea’s home goals have come after the half time break, so a half-time draw may be a good option too.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea have an FA Cup final to look forward to this season after beating Southampton in the semi-final over the weekend. Chelsea have a five-point deficit to Tottenham to try and make up in just four games in the race for a fourth-place finish in the league. That’s not too likely to happen but Chelsea just can just keep winning and hope. They have won their last two games, both one-margin away victories at Southampton and Burnley. Chelsea’s last three league wins have been all by a one-goal margin and Chelsea to win by a one-goal margin is at 5/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 6:25 p.m. on April 23rd, 2018). Chelsea are W9 D3 L5 away from Stamford Bridge this season and three of their four away defeats have happened in their last five road games. They don’t look anywhere near as stable or confident as they were last season, but they have won handsomely at each of the other current bottom five this season, scoring at least three goals in each of those wins. In the bet365 correct score market, a conservative Chelsea 1-0 result is at 5/1 odds with a 6/1 on a Chelsea 2-0* (all Betting Odds taken at 6:25 p.m. on April 23rd, 2018). Chelsea have averaged 1.8 goals per away game this season.

The Blues collected three home points against Swansea earlier this season thanks to a 1-0 win. They have won their last two in the league against the Welsh club now but Chelsea are actually only W2 D2 L1 in their last five league outings against the Swans. The Blues have taken just the one point from their last two league visits to the Liberty Stadium. Four of the last six league meetings have produced over 2.5 goals.

Swansea v Chelsea Betting Odds*

Chelsea 1/2, Draw 3/1, Swansea 11/2* (Betting Odds taken at 6:25 p.m. on April 23rd, 2018)

Swansea v Chelsea Predictions

Chelsea to win: The Blues will be feeling much better about themselves after their FA Cup win on the weekend. Even though they don’t look anywhere near their best they have the individual talent to come up with a moment of magic to collect three points. Maybe by nothing more than a one-goal margin though.

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.
