Betting. Swansea vs Chelsea [11.09.16] : the Swans will drown[ ]
Match week 4
Bet: Total Goals by Away Team over 1,5
After winning the first match of the season against Burnley (1-0) Swansea has been disappointing its fans. Contrary to all sports betting predictions Guidolin’s side lost at home to the newly promoted Hull City (0-2). In the subsequent week The Swans had a difficult away game with last season champion Leicester. The Welsh team was not considered as a favorite by betting and succumbed to 1-2 defeat. As a result they went down to the 14th place of the Premier League table.

Confirming all betting predictions Chelsea has won all of their three first games of the new season. And Conte’s side is looking to carry on their success. It seems that unlike their last year’s terrible performance, they are now ready to rival two Mancunian clubs as predicted by sports betting companies. For now The Blues have overcame West Ham (2-1), Watford (2-1) and Liverpool’s offender Burnley (3-0).
While choosing a bet you should take into account the fact that under the direction of Antonio Conte The Blues regained their confidence and even managed to get a clean sheet in the previous match – the first time since April. It is especially important to Antonio Conte, who is not a strong advocate of an all-attacking football, to get rid of the defensive vulnerability. It is also worth mentioning that the Blues will still play without Zouma and The Swans cannot rely on injured Borja Baston. Hypothetically Guidolin’s team is capable of fighting with the strong opponents, but they need more time to form a good team. According to the betting opinion, at this moment Chelsea has more chances to get 3 points.
The bookmakers have little doubts about Londoners’ win: Swansea – 5,50, Draw – 4,15, Chelsea – 1,66. It is interesting that last season The Swans got their first victory in the last ten matches against The Blues. However, Chelsea won six times and will probably do it for the seventh time. You can bet either on Conte’s team win or handicap (-1) (2,12). Besides, the bet Total Goals by Away Team over 1,5 (1,72) looks quite reliable. Finally, since Diego Costa has scored five goals in three matches against Swansea a good pick is Diego Costa to Score (2,12).
