Manchester City - Chelsea betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 13:30 on 15/01/2022 played @ Etihad Stadium refereed by Craig Pawson

Punters who are looking for a safe bet should definitely consider this match. The home win odds of 1.71 bring great value considering the fact that Manchester City are indeed firm favourites to defeat Chelsea.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Chelsea stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 5.50, marking an insurmountable difference.

City were considered quite likely to lock the three points in their previous Premier League match, but their supporters weren’t quite as confident when the squad fell behind before halftime. However, they managed to turn things around for a 1:2 away win.

Chelsea’s previous Premier League match ended with a home draw against Liverpool. The 2:2 outcome was better for Chelsea than for their opponents, but fans are hoping for more decisive results in round 22.

The Sky Blues are on a bit of a streak when it comes to scoring. With more than 9 over their last 3 matches, fans are feeling fairly confident in their goal-scoring ability. Likewise, bookmakers online are fairly confident the Saturday match will yield Over 4.5 goals.

Looking over the visitors and their recent history, we noticed they’ve scored more than 5 goals in their previous 3 appearances. This signals a consistent ability to score in most matchups, which is good news for their supporters.

If the hosts keep up the form they’ve displayed so far, they’re on their way to claim the Premier League title. It’s still quite a ways off, but favourable matchups such as The Blues are exactly what they need to stay on top.

The Blues are near the top of the standings and will be highly motivated to earn the 10 points they need to overtake the current leaders. However, motivation may not be enough. Even though there’s plenty of time left in the season, the visitors are considered underdogs in this matchup, so earning points will be a difficult task.

This is the second time we’re seeing these two sides clash this season. The first game went The Citizens’s way, albeit with a difference of only one goal. Still, such a record makes it easy to see why they’re the favourites this time around.

The visitors’ status as underdogs is further made worse by the exceptionally high number of injuries going into this match. Andreas Christensen, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, Reece James, N'Golo Kanté, Timo Werner will all be unable to play at Etihad Stadium, so think twice before putting down any bets.

Over 2.5 Goals is easily the safest bet when it comes to this matchup. The best part is that it also maintains a decent betting value, especially if you use the 1.80 odds offered at William Hill.
