Premier League

Matchweek 8


Bet: Chelsea Win and Over 2.5 Goals

In September Chelsea was awful. That’s because The Blues after three wins in a row managed to gain only four points in four matches. Despite betting predictions Antonio Conte’s side firstly drew 2-2 with Swansea City and then was beaten twice by Liverpool 1-2 and Arsenal 0-3. And only in the final game of the month The Pensioners overcame Hull City 2-0. As the bets say that helped Chelsea not to let off leading group and fix itself on the seventh place in standings.

At the same time Leicester City continues to be unstable. As sports betting experts predicted rival teams figured out Foxes style. Moreover, Claudio Ranieri transforms the tactical scheme of the starting lineup and that needs some time. So in September Leicester City showed disappointing results getting only one victory and one draw in four matches. Though The Foxes were routed by Liverpool and Manchester United with the same score of 1-4. Thus City is currently on the twelfth place as the bets said.


Summarizing aforesaid both teams have big problems. And it was predicted by betting, that’s not a surprise. As for Chelsea, Antonio Conte is trying to solve a defense issue – John Terry and Kurt Zouma are injured so the coach even put three central defenders in lineup: Gary Cahill, David Luiz and César Azpilicueta. And that was a remedy because The Blues overcame Hull City. At the same time Leicester City has no problems in personnel. But bets said style transforming needs other skills than counterattack for especially heavyweight striker Islam Slimani. Moreover the defense is no longer effective as it was last season.

The bookmakers named the hosts as an obvious favorite: Chelsea - 1.57; Draw - 4.20; Leicester City - 6.00. But I wouldn’t so quick. The game will take place after pause for international matches and The Blues delegate many their players on international duty. That’s why Leicester chances not to lose are robust. So the bet “Double Chance: Leicester or Draw” (2.20) must be considered. Alternatively “Chelsea Win and Over 2.5 Goals” (2.15) may get through because The Pensioners need to recharge their lost condition. Moreover at home they are much more confident.
