Oh boy, it’s time for football, time for the Premier League and time for betting. Chelsea is playing against Newcastle. Coach Sarri and his Blues are playing a pretty decent season and are only three-points trailing to the Spurs. However, in our betting tip, we expect a home win. Moreover, we would suggest a handicap bet.
Chelsea has the 2nd best defense of the league – Clear fancied team
The defense of coach Sarri is amazing and is not allowing a whole lot. Important in this squad is Hazard who makes a significant difference. The 28-year-old player from Belgium was already part of 19 goals of Chelsea and is, therefore, a key player. In addition to that, the Blues are undefeated since three games. This results in 4th place, right behind the Spurs. Without any problems regarding injuries, the next home game should result in a win. We expect the dominance to take over this game as well. We would go with a handicap win of Chelsea in our betting tip.
Newcastle without a win since four games – Clear underdog in the betting tip
Even though we just showed you how positive a team can be, we have to agree on the fact that Newcastle is still having some difficulties compared to the Big Blue. Currently in 15th place Benitez and his team who are only two points ahead of the danger zone. An important problem is that Newcastle has the 2nd worst offense of the Premier League. They cannot even score once per game on average. In terms of expected goals, Newcastle is also 2nd last. Unfortunately, their defense is also in 4th last place when it comes to expected goals there. To top it off, the team of coach Benitez is waiting for a three-pointer since four league games. In our betting tip, we cannot favor Newcastle.
Betting Tip Chelsea FC vs. Newcastle United
If the blues win with at least two goals more in their own stadium, the sports betting odds are between 1.62 and 1.75. If the host wins with exactly one goal difference, you have odds of 3.40 to 4.00. If Newcastle gets at least a draw or even wins, the odds of 3.92 to 4.30 are distributed. Our betting tip: Chelsea is in a good mood, playing a good season and can rely on the defensive. Newcastle, on the other hand, is having major problems defensively. Consequently, a blues handicap victory seems the best option.
