Chelsea vs Bournemouth Betting Tips, Predictions and Odds

Chelsea betting tips

Three losses in four in the league has seen the gap to fifth place cut. Even so, Chelsea are still a reasonably healthy, five points ahead of Manchester United in the race for the top four. A win over Lille to qualify for the Champions League knockouts on Tuesday will have raised spirits but Frank Lampard needs to get his side back on track in the Premier League.

Bournemouth are bottom of the form table after five straight defeats. The Cherries have slipped to fifteenth, just one point above the relegation zone. They have failed to score in either of their last two games and have averaged over two goals against per game since their last point. Eddie Howe was linked to the Everton job when Marco Silva was sacked but that link looks to have gone quiet. They’ve only won one of their last ten matches now and things don’t get any easier at Stamford Bridge this weekend.

 

Chelsea vs Bournemouth Betting Odds

Chelsea are priced at 1/4 to beat Bournemouth. A draw is priced at 5/1 whilst an away win is available at 9/1.

Tammy Abraham is the bookies’ favourite to score first at 12/5 followed by Michy Batshuayi at 3/1.

In the correct score market, a 2-0 Chelsea win is priced at 7/1, 3-0 at 8/1 and 2-1 at 9/1.

Both teams to score in this match is 4/5 but Bournemouth have failed to score in their last two matches, losing 1-0 against Crystal Palace and 3-0 at home to Liverpool last weekend.

Halftime/Fulltime Chelsea/Chelsea Odds: 8/11

Lampard’s side have taken the lead in three of their last five league games despite, winning just twice. Chelsea took the lead in their last game with Lille and lead at halftime. Bournemouth haven’t scored in either of their last two with striker, Callum Wilson, failing to score in any of their last nine.

 

Kovacic to Score Odds: 9/2

The Croatian has never been a prolific scorer. It took him over a year to score his first Chelsea at the back end of November. He’s since scored in the Premier League, in Chelsea’s defeat to Everton last time out. Kovacic hasn’t been shy of shooting in recent games and has been getting into good positions on the edge of the box. With Kante back in his more defensive mode, Kovacic seems to be getting forward more so he’s our anytime goalscorer tip for this match.

 

Score Prediction: Chelsea to Win 2-0 – 7/1

This is a Bournemouth side enduring their worst spell of the season. The same can be said for Chelsea but success in the Champions League should life the Stamford Bridge crowd. Their stale performance against Everton was replaced with far more incisive attacking football in midweek. If that continues, there’s only one winner here. Bournemouth are struggling for goals and that might continue this weekend, so have a bet on Chelsea to win this match 2-0 at odds of 7/1.
