Premier League Betting Tips: Chelsea and West Ham clash in feisty London derby
The best way to recover from two days of solid football is more football of course. There’s two games in the Premier League tonight as Burnley entertain Wolves before Chelsea welcome rivals West Ham to Stamford Bridge.
And we’ve previewed both clashes in our Premier League betting tips…
Burnley v Wolves (17:30)
Burnley had hauled themselves out of the relegation zone taking five points from three games including victory at Arsenal and with two games in hand on those around them another win tonight would lift them above Fulham and Brighton.
Wolves have battled away without star striker Raul Jimenez leading the line, after he suffered a fractured skull against the Gunners, with wing men Daniel Podence and Pedro Neto who came to the party in the midweek win over Chelsea.
In terms of formation, Burnley may opt for their favoured 4-4-2 with Jay Rodriguez and Chris Wood up top.
Nuno Espirito Santo swears by his 3-4-3 set-up, wing backs being pivotal but all held together by England’s Conor Coady at the back.
The away side are 6/5 to take all three points back to the Midlands, while they’re 9/2 to win with Both Teams to Score.
Burnley’s renewed confidence could bear fruit though, with the Clarets 13/5 to triumph. However, the last two meetings have been 1-1 draws. There’s 5/1 about a repeat of that scoreline, while the outright draw is 21/10.
Wood is 15/8 to score anytime for the hosts, while Neto is 11/5 to find the net. Wolves’ Fabio Silva 12/5 to score his first goal for his new club.
Chelsea v West Ham United (20:00)
Chelsea have slipped up in the top four battle, losing back-to-back games to Everton and Wolves.
Frank Lampard will demand a big response under the lights at Stamford Bridge tonight, but they take on a side they’ve only beaten once in their last five league meetings.
The Hammers on the flip side have real momentum, only losing once since October. The Irons have beaten Chelsea in their last two meetings and are 11/2 for victory tonight.
This could be a real slanging match, with the Blues are 1/2 to get a much-needed victory, while the draw is 17/5.
But who’s finding the back on the net? Tomas Soucek has been a real threat from set pieces and is 9/2 anytime. Known for the spectacular, Sebastian Haller is 17/2 to open the scoring, while Jarrod Bowen is 7/2.
Chelsea’s Timo Werner will be desperate to nip this dry spell in the bud. The German international is 21/20 anytime. Olivier Giroud is proving he can be as prolific as ever and is 5/4. Both Teams to Score in a Home Win is 15/8.
