Betting. Chelsea vs Everton [05.11.16] : The Blues are on fire[ ]
Bet: Total Goals by Home Team over 2
On Saturday, November 5, Chelsea host Everton. The home side has recently shown a very good performance. So in this game the Blues will be looking to take advantage from Everton and extend their winning streak.
After a few failures which included an unexpected 2-2 draw with Swansea, a home loss to Liverpool 1-2 and an ignominious defeat at the hands of Arsenal 0-3, Chelsea managed to put things right. Contrary to all sports betting predictions the Blues romped to a 4-0 win over Mourinho’s Manchester United and overcame Hull City, Leicester and Southampton. So despite being lately eliminated from the Football League Cup (a defeat to West Ham) the betting experts think Chelsea is back to the championship race. Conte’s side is now only 1 point behind the leaders.

The betting companies were surprised by Everton’s amazing start this season. Under the direction of Ronald Coeman the Toffees managed to remain unbeaten in the first 5 matches (4 wins and 1 draw). However, they then started to back down. The Merseyside team couldn’t get a victory in 4 matches in a row. It becomes particularly alarming if you watch on the list of their rivals which wasn’t very impressive – Bournemouth (0-1), Crystal Palace (1-1), Burnley (1-2). The only exception here is Man City (1-1). In addition, betting markets considered the Toffees to be the favorite in the English League Cup clash with Norwich, but they were beaten 0-2.
While choosing a bet you should pay attention to the head-to-head stats. The Blues are undefeated in the last 22 home games against Everton in all competitions. What’s more, they have a fine run of form that is confirmed by 4 consecutive victories in the Premier League. By the way, Conte finally managed to put their defensive frailties from earlier this season behind them as they have kept a clean sheet in the last 4 matches. It is also important to know that Conte has a full squad fit and ready to fight. At the same time struggling Everton will be without their two key defenders Idrissa Gueye and James McCarthy.
The bookmakers give a significant advantage to the home side: Chelsea – 1,57, Draw – 4,35, Everton – 6,30. The Blues are expected to go on and win again on Stamford Bridge, extending their head-to-head record against the Toffees. Londoners’’ current form gives us a clear pointer for the Chelsea vs Everton betting tips. Apart from Chelsea’s win, you can bet on “Total Goals by Home Team over 2” (2,05). Another good option is “Asian Handicap Chelsea -1” (1,93) as Coeman’s side doesn’t look ready to stand tight against this edition of a revitalized Chelsea.
