Match Preview

Southampton

Currently 16th in the table with 31 points, Southampton is just 4 points away from the relegation zone, but in the same time, just 5 points away from Top 10. The team has a home record of W5-D5-L5, recording a victory in their most recent match here against Liverpool with 3-1. The Saints managed to get the points with the same score against Manchester City as well some weeks ago. The team also managed to record home draws against Arsenal and Manchester United, and the only team they lost to from Top 5 was Tottenham, another London team with 0-2. The betting odds for Southampton to win this match are @ 3.60, undercut odds with draw @ 3.50. The books fear that Southampton might pull a draw or a victory with their stats being so good against top teams at home. We however believe Chelsea cannot afford to lose another point against teams from the lower half of the table, because that will most likely cost them a place in Top4.

Chelsea

Chelsea managed to hop back on the third spot after Tottenham lost their home derby with Fulham. The team currently has 55 points, one ahead of the Spurs and 5 ahead of Arsenal. Away record W7-D3-L4, scoring 25 goals and conceding 17, Chelsea is the 4th best visitor this season. The team is looking forward to Champions League participation next season, but for that they cannot afford to lose points, especially against teams in the lower half of the table. With Benitez managing the team, we cannot say we saw a transformed Chelsea, but in the same time, the results the Blues are recording aren’t bad either. The betting odds for Chelsea to win this match are @ 2.05 and this would be our betting tip #1. However considering that there’s a certain amount of risk, we believe that everyone should go after Draw No Bet Chelsea @ 1.50 where if the match ends draw your wager will be refunded.

Verdict

Betting tip#1 Chelsea to win this match @ 2.05. Though Southampton has lost only to Tottenham in the home matches against big teams like Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool, the Blues simply need the points at all cost.

Betting tip #2 Draw no Bet Chelsea @ 1.50. Just in case Chelsea does not manage to get the 3 points, but gets away with the point. This however could cost them their place in top 4.
