Chelsea vs Wolves predictions and betting tips for the Premier League fixture on Sunday 10th March including reasons for each selection. Wolves are having a great season and Chelsea played in the Europa League on Thursday, but who will get the three points here?
Despite coming in for a lot of criticism this season, this Chelsea team have already got to the final of the League Cup, are in a commanding position in their Europa League last 16 match and are within touching distance of the top four with a game in hand. Maurizio Sarri has not exactly been welcomed by the Chelsea fans who get frustrated with his football, but another three points here could see them close the gap on the top four once again.
Wolves have been fantastic for the vast majority of the season and are in with a real chance of finishing the season in seventh spot. They got back to winning ways against Cardiff last time out after a shock defeat at Huddersfield and draw at Bournemouth. We don’t think they will get a win at Stamford Bridge this weekend but a 2-1 victory for the hosts looks a good bet at odds of 17/2.
Chelsea have only lost once all season on home soil and that came against Leicester City. Their last home match was an impressive 2-0 win over Tottenham and Pedro got a goal, he also scored against Dynamo Kiev in the Europa League on Thursday and we’re backing him to keep his goalscoring run going in this match. The Spaniard is much better odds than the likes of Higuain and Hazard and you’ll get 5/2 with bet365 for a Pedro goal anytime against Wolves.
To round off our betting tips for this match, a god selection might be one to add to a BTTS and win accumulator and betting on Chelsea to win and both teams to score. Wolves have found the net in nine of their last 11 away matches in the Premier League and they will not be afraid to attack Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Their expansive play does leave them vulnerable at the back sometimes though and with Eden Hazard around, that is something you cannot afford to do.
Chelsea to win and BTTS – 13/5 with bet365.
Pedro to score anytime – 5/2 with bet365.
