Chelsea vs Hull City Football Betting Tips and Prediction

The wait is finally over, as the English Premier League returns this weekend and Chelsea start by hosting new boys Hull City.

And for those without Sky Sports you can watch Saturdays live games for free on freeview channel 11.

Forwarding to Sunday's games now and Jose Mourinho's Chelsea take on newly promoted and newly named Hull City Tigers, in the first Super Sunday of the season and it promises to be a belter. That is if you support Chelsea. For those following the Tigers it could be the start a long depressing season and a sign of things to come.


Chelsea are firm favourites here at 2/9 (Coral), but it could be a case of top vs bottom come May time. As I predict Chelsea to just pip to the league title and Hull City to be relegated.

I can't find a single reason for anyone to back Hull City at 21/1 (Bet Victor), or any reason why the draw should be backed at 6/1(Bet Victor) Chelsea are simply too good to be worried by anything Hull have to offer.

The difficulty with this fixture is finding value. Chelsea are simply unbackable at 2/9 (Coral) no matter how many goals I think they'll win by.

My hunt for value takes me to the Half time/Full time market and sees me taking the appealing 4/6 (Stan James) on offer for Chelsea/Chelsea

As far as correct scores go, this could be a real embarrassment for Hull City. I'm going for 5-0 in favour of Chelsea at 20/1 with Stan James. For a safer bet, but much shorter price you could take Chelsea to win to nil at 10/11 with Sky Bet.

With a score line like that predicted, this could be a real feast for punters picking anytime goalscores.

My selection is Branislav Ivanovic at 7/1 (Ladbrokes), who is always good for a long shot anytime scorer, and with Hull likely to be conceding corners, Ivanovic could capitalise and smash in one of his trademark headers.

Finally, as a little Super Sunday treat, I'll be taking the 13/10 on offer from Ladbrokes for Chelsea -2 in the Asian Handicaps. That for me is huge value. And at that price I'll be biting Ladbrokes arm off!

Best of luck with any bets you have over the weekend. I'll be back next week to find more value.
