Chelsea v Everton Predictions
Thanks to a hard fought win over Aston Villa and another Manchester City slip-up, Chelsea extended their lead at the top of the table to seven points at the weekend. Despite not being at their fluid best in recent weeks it now seems inevitable that Jose Mourinho will pick up yet another league title.
Although their form on the road has been chequered, the same cannot be said for The Blues league record at Stamford Bridge. Up until their 1-1 draw with rivals Manchester City a fortnight ago, Chelsea had won ten games in a row on their own turf. However, their shock collapse at the hands of League One Bradford City in the FA Cup proves Jose Mourinho's men are not invincible, and they also looked vulnerable in their fortunate victory over Liverpool in the League Cup semi-final as well.
Everton have been under-performing for some time in the league now, and despite four points from the last six available, The Toffees are not playing well. Last weekend's stalemate against Liverpool was as negative as I've ever seen from an Everton side, and it seemed as if Roberto Martinez wasn't interested in winning the game, just desperate not to lose it.
Nevertheless, the team from Merseyside do have a respectable record against Chelsea and have picked up points against several of the league's top teams this season. The Blues are without top scorer Diego Costa, and Cesc Fabregas is struggling with a hamstring problem, Wednesday is as good a time as ever to be facing the league leaders.
The latest betting odds for Chelsea v Everton tonight have Chelsea as runaway favourites at a best priced 1/3. Everton are huge longshots at 10/1, with the draw on offer at 9/2.
Although Everton have shown great resilience in the last few weeks, thus highlighting the appeal of the draw, I just can't see them being strong enough to keep out their opponents consistently over 90 minutes. At odds of 1/3, though, it's not much of a money-spinner if you back Chelsea outright. Therefore, we are going to predict a correct score for Chelsea v Everton tonight, have a punt on a 2-0 Chelsea win at 5/1 with Betfred.
40% of The Blues' wins this season have been by that scoreline and Betfred will refund your stake as a free bet should that match finish one apiece. Seeing as 1-1 is the most frequent result in the Premier League this season, that is an excellent piece of insurance.
Moving into the goal scoring and man of the match markets, and look no further than Eden Hazard for our next two football betting tips tonight. The Belgian has an imperious scoring record at The Bridge and enough man of the match gongs to sink the Titanic. Back Hazard to score anytime at 13/8 with Bet365 and win the man of the match award available at 7/2 with Paddy Power.
