West Brom vs Chelsea betting tips and predictions ahead of this Premier League game, kicking off at 8pm on Friday, 12th May 2017. See our tipsters’ betting preview below.
Can Chelsea claim the three points they need to win the title at the Hawthorns on Friday night? They head to West Brom knowing victory will hand them the trophy, following their 3-0 win over Middlesbrough on Monday. Is there anything Tony Pulis and co. can do to delay the Blues’ celebrations?
While the Blues have three chances to wrap up the title, and could even do it with a slip up from Tottenham, they’ll want to wrap things up as quickly as possible. They’ve been handed a kind run in, with this West Brom side fully off the boil. They’ve seemingly done enough for the season and dropped off in terms of intensity, having failed to score in five of their last six.
The last three games at this ground have all been 1-0 defeats for West Brom, and we can see them struggling against a Chelsea side who have won 3-0 in consecutive games. The Blues seem to be back to their best at the back, while they’ve won to nil in 39% of their away trips. That has us backing an away win to nil in our first West Brom vs Chelsea betting tip, which is 6/5 with Bet Victor.
Our second betting tip is a piece of history for Eden Hazard on Friday night. The Belgian has thrived in big games of late, he’s had a crucial input as the Blues sail towards a fifth Premier League title. In the previous two seasons Hazard has scored the goal which has settled the title race. We’re backing him to do that for a third straight season in our second West Brom vs Chelsea prediction, which is priced at 7/5 with 888Sport.
Chelsea were missing N’Golo Kante on Monday, but Antonio Conte played down concerns over the Frenchman. He’s likely to return here, probably in place of Pedro. The absences of Jonny Evans and Matt Phillips are a couple of big blows for the Baggies.
Just one of the last six encounters have seen a win for West Brom. The Blues hit three goals in their previous visit to the Hawthorns.
Chelsea shouldn’t have to hold out for a 1-0 here, given their brilliant scoring record of late. They’ve hit 14 goals in their last four outings, scoring at least three per game. We see them hitting another three at the Hawthorns, too. Our final West Brom vs Chelsea betting tip is a 3-0 win for the leaders at 9/1 with Sky Bet, as we see the Blues wrapping up the title in style.
Chelsea to win to nil – 6/5 with Bet Victor.
Eden Hazard to score any time – 7/5 with 888Sport.
Chelsea to win 3-0 – 9/1 with Sky Bet.
