Title favourites Chelsea begin their season this Monday with a trip up north to face Premier League new boys Burnley at Turf Moor and we have some free football betting tips.
As you would expect for this game Jose Mourinho's men are strong favourites coming in at 2/5 with Ladbrokes. The draw is available at 4/1 with bet365 and the Burnley win is available at 8/1 with William Hill.
I'm going to start off these tips but ruling out the draw and the Burnley win being as viable options. Both these options are priced too short. Burnley have spent mostly on Championship players like Marvin Sordell and Lukas Jutiewicz when Burnley get relegated these signings will serve them well but for this season in the Premier League things are going to be painful for Sean Dyche and co.
Compare this to Chelsea's summer activity of signing blockbuster stars like Fabregas and Diego Costa and odds of 4/1 and 8/1 just aren't tempting enough for hard-headed punters.
However, Chelsea at 2/5 isn't the most exciting price either. We need to find value elsewhere and at thatsbettingtips we've done just that. In the first week of the season you can often not be sure how teams will play. That isn't the case with Jose Mourinho teams though. Chelsea are going to be as close to a machine as a football team can be. They are going to be incredibly well organised, near impossible to beat and with the attacking talent they now have they will now take their chances.
With this in mind the first thing to look at with a Jose Mourinho Chelsea is Chelsea to win to nil. Setting up wit Matic as an anchorman in defensive midfield and the best back five in the league Burnley will struggle to create much. Chelsea to win to nil is available at 23/20 with William Hill.
Odds that I like even more are though are Chelsea to win 3-0 which is available at 17/2 with bet365. Burnley's defense conceded only 35 goals in 44 games last season but there is a world of difference between defending against Barnsley's Chris O'Grady and Diego Costa.
With Fabregas pulling the strings I don't see Burnley's defense holding out for long. You might think this suggests a 6-1 thrashing but under Mourinho when Chelsea get a team on the ropes they tend to play no risk football and accept the lead they already have. It is easy to envision a scenario where Chelsea are three goals up after 65/70 minutes and kill the game off. 3-0 with the option to cash out for an early profit if Chelsea bag a couple early on is a great bet.
As a last thought big things are expected from Eden Hazard this season and I think his movement could prove too much for Burnley. Hazard to score two or more goals is available at 10/1 with Ladbrokes.
