Watford - Chelsea betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 20:30 on 01/12/2021 played @ Vicarage Road Stadium refereed by David Coote

Upsets do happen in football and it’s fair to say a home win here would be a definition of the case. Watford can count themselves lucky if they avoid getting completely destroyed by Chelsea in this match.

Any Result bet in this match other than Away Win would be quite optimistic indeed. Chelsea seem to be on their way to a relatively easy victory, though we suppose a major slip-up is not out of the question. Don’t count on it, though.

The Hornets’s previous Premier League match did not go their way, but not even the most stubborn fans would have predicted a different result against a team as strong as Leicester City . They played as visitors, and the top online bookmakers priced an away win at 5.50. They never recovered from some early concessions, and the score was brought to a conclusive 4:2 result before the end.

The Blues haven’t exactly been playing top of their game lately. Last round’s home draw 1:1 against Manchester United was far from a disaster, but most of us – including the world’s best online bookmakers – expected a lot more considering they played at home.

The biggest issue the hosts have is a lacklustre backline. They’re currently on a bit of a trend of conceding a lot of goals – over 5 across their 3 previous matches, to be exact.

Chelsea and their strikers are well-regarded by experts and bookies alike – they managed to score more than 5 times in their previous 3 home games.

The Hornets will be aiming to put some more distance between them and the dreaded relegation zone. They’re currently 16th in the standings, but this upcoming match is quite dangerous.

Betting on Away Win is something most punters shy away from but in the case of Chelsea it makes perfect sense. They are top of the Premier League standings after 14 matches and are given fair odds to grab three points that will keep them there.

We last saw these two teams clash in the previous season when Chelsea walked away with a decisive victory. Both the bookies and most betting tips are expecting another win for them here.

Both rosters have been impacted by an unfortunate string of injuries, leaving them with limited options. The favoured visitors will be short Ben Chilwell, N'Golo Kanté, Mateo Kovačić, Romelu Lukaku, while Christian Kabasele, Francisco Sierralta, Ken Sema, Ismaila Sarr, Oghenekaro Etebo, Kwadwo Baah, Nicolas N'Koulou will not play for the home team.

An Over 2.5 Goals is a great bet if you like staying on the safe side. The betting value for this market is strong compared even to the 1.73, which makes this an easy betting prediction to make.

Betting tip (stake: 7/10): Over 2,5 1.73 at bet365
Correct score prediction: 2:2
