Chelsea - Southampton betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 15:00 on 02/10/2021 played @ Stamford Bridge refereed by Martin Atkinson

This match is somewhat one-sided, but not the most imbalanced clash we’ve seen. The odds are heavily in the hosts’ favour, who will likely walk away with 3 more points to the tally.

If betting odds are anything to go on – and they are - Southampton will likely get overrun by their opponents with little hope of winning. Considering how one-sided this matchup is, they may want to cut their losses and focus their energy elsewhere.

Chelsea kept up the pace with a tough match-up against Manchester City in the previous round, but they stumbled towards the end. They had to contend with a narrow 0:1 home defeat after the final whistle.

Southampton fans are rather disappointed with their latest outing at home. An uneventful deadlock in the first half was followed by an unexpected tiebreaker from Wolverhampton Wanderers, the visitors, resulting in a narrow home defeat.

The hosts have been careful not to let their goalscoring stats slip. They’ve scored more than 5 times during the last 3 matches, indicating consistent offensive results.

You may want to consider something like an Under 5 Goals bet for this match. The visiting team just participated in two consecutive matches that had fewer than 2 goals.

The fact that they are favourites here presents a unique opportunity for Chelsea to close the 1-point lead they need to topple the current table leaders. It’s still fairly early in the season, though, so tensions are high.

The form we saw from The Saints over the past 7 matches can’t be good for their supporters’ confidence. They’re just 1 point above the relegation zone and are heading into this game as clear underdogs. On the bright side, we’re only at round 7 of the competition.

Records show that the previous game between The Blues and Southampton was a draw. That said, the match was played last season. Most sportsbook price a home win at 1.40 – as favourites, they’ll surely want a more conclusive result.

An Under 2.5 Goals bet is an easy tip to offer – it’s a fairly probable outcome with betting odds priced at a comfortable 2.10. More importantly, though, the betting value it offers is surprisingly solid.

Betting tip (stake: 8/10): Under 2,5 2.10 at 888Sport
