Sports Betting. Burnley vs Chelsea [12.02.17] : tough test for The Blues on Turf Moor

Premier League

Matchday 25

12.02.2017

Bet: Total Match Goals Under 2.5

Chelsea is comfortly leading in Premier League with nine point handicap over second Tottenham. Other clubs are even lower in standings. Sports betting experts admitted that The Blues very successfully passed tough games against key rivals – Liverpool (1-1 on Anfield) and Arsenal (3-1 on Stamford Bridge). Moreover, Antonio Conte’s side win five matches out of last six in all competitions. So it’s not surprising that The Pensioners are considered to be a favourite at betting odds of 1.44.

At the same time Burnley is currently in the middle of the standings occupying 12th place. Right now there is no risk of relegation for the club but the handicap is just nine points. While placing bets it needs to be said that The Clarets are very mighty on Turf Moor winning last seven games in all competitions. Interestingly that Sean Dyche’s side took 28 points at home out of overall 29. However, the team was beaten by majors – Manchester City and Arsenal. That’s why bookmakers’ offices named Burnley as an underdog at betting odds of 8.00. Even the Draw is evaluated by 4.50.

However, sports betting experts advised to consider such option as “Double Chance: Burnley Or Draw” (2.62). But it is very risky because The Clarets will be missing several key midfielders: Steven Defour, Dean Marney and Jeff Hendrick. At the same time Sean Dyche in winter managed to strengthen the line-up by signing Robbie Brady, Joey Barton and Ashley Westwood. In whole Burnley on Turf Moor takes points not by skills but largely due to character. Nevertheless Chelsea is well motivated to win the title race so The Blues have to take three points against such opponents. And if Eden Hazard is going to be sidelined the betting predications are in the favour of Antonio Conte’s side.

As to the performance Burnley does not usually score many goals. Moreover, in last four games on Turf Moor the team managed not to concede a single goal. So it’s logically to take such bets as Total Match Goals Under 2.5 at betting odds of 1.91. Besides, it’s doubtful that Chelsea will allow The Clarets to win. That’s why gamblers may choose “Both Teams To Score: No” (1.65).
