Ladies and Gentlemen, prepare yourself for the boxing-day. Watford is expecting Chelsea in an exciting match-up. The away team is going to try everything to stay on track since they just found back to their old strength. Considering the good betting odds for the Blues, we can bet on an away win with ease. In our betting tip, we surely expect Chelsea to win.
Watford lost to almost every one of the top 6 – Underdog in the betting tip
The Hornets are not too bad this year and find themselves in 10th place. However, against opponents from the top 6, Watford only won against Tottenham in the very beginning of the season. In addition to that, Watford did not manage to tie in their own stadium. They either won or lost. Against Chelsea, we expect a loss. Offensively and defensively, the Hornets in terms of expected goals have the disadvantage. In addition, the team of captain Deeney conceded seven goals in the past three home games – clearly too much. Ultimately, despite the high odds, we must bet against the Hornets in the betting tip.
Chelsea finds back to old strength – Fancied team
Chelsea wants to stay close to the top of the Premier League on boxing day. The current form makes the fans of the Blues believe that anything can happen. Most recently, an immensely important three-pointer could be secured in the clash with City. Except for minor mistakes, the Blues play a tough season and gain point after point. Currently, there are no major injury concerns and, therefore, nothing should stand in the way of another victory on Boxing Day. In any case, we clearly bet on a win of the Chelsea Football Club in our betting tip.
Betting Tip Watford vs. Chelsea
Despite the game in their own stadium, Watford is the clear underdog. Should you still bet on a home victory, you will find sports betting odds between 5.00 to 5.75. In case of a draw, the sports betting odds of bookmakers vary from 3.75 to 4.20. But if everything goes according to plan and Chelsea wins on the road, the odds are between 1.60 and 1.67. Our betting tip: Not only the combined market value but also the expected goals suggest that Chelsea is the clear favorite. The men of the London Bridge are strong and are self-confident after the victory against City. Consequently, we bet on a clear win of Chelsea.
