Match Betting (1x2)

Chelsea are in the box seat when it comes to claiming fourth place in the Premier League this season, with the Blues boasting a five-point gap over the chasing pack and they will want to keep teams such as Arsenal at arm’s length.

Frank Lampard’s team are an 8/11 chance with William Hill to claim a victory over the Gunners, just as they did at the Emirates Stadium a few weeks ago.

While it’s easy to see why Chelsea are favourites to claim the spoils, the bottom line is that the west London side have only won five of their eleven matches at Stamford Bridge this season.

There’s the nagging doubt that Lampard’s side are more of a force on the road and they will come up against an Arsenal team showing signs of improvement at the moment.

Unibet offer 18/5 about a maximum haul for Mikel Arteta’s side and they will be looking to claim revenge over Chelsea who did trail by a single goal before mounting a comeback to win 2-1 in the reverse fixture.

Punters should also consider the possibility of a draw and BetVictor have 3/1 that the clash ends all square which offers far better value than the home win.

A point apiece wouldn’t actually be a bad outcome for either side, allowing Arsenal to launch towards the second half of the season with some confidence.

Asian Handicap

We think that Chelsea are a chronically short price to win this clash and the Blues can be opposed on the Asian Handicap market in several ways.

Arsenal are a 5/2 chance with Unibet off zero on the Asian Handicap market, with money back if the Gunners draw the game and a handsome profit if the visitors manage to triumph at Stamford Bridge.

Some might think an away win is a tall order considering that we’ve only seen the Gunners win two of the eleven games on the road.

However, they have drawn on six occasions when they’ve gone on their travels and BetVictor have 13/11 about Arsenal with a +0.5 goal advantage and that means more than doubling your profit if the game ends level or in an away win.

Both Teams to Score

Both teams managed to find the net at the Emirates Stadium and the “Yes” option on the Both Teams to Score market is available at 8/13 with William Hill.

Nevertheless, there have been plenty of recent Chelsea games where at least one team has failed to score, with the “No” option available at 29/20 with BetVictor.

If you are looking to back Chelsea to win the game, you might want to consider the Blues winning and both teams finding the net. That outcome can be backed at 21/10 with Paddy Power.
