BetVictor taking on Chelsea for Saturday’s clash with Arsenal
Chelsea 29/20 to beat Gunners after miserable start to the season
September 15th, 2015
One victory, one draw and three defeats make pretty grim reading for Chelsea in the Premier League, with twelve goals conceded since the campaign began.
Jose Mourinho couldn’t have imagined such a disastrous beginning to the season, although he now has to rally the troops for Saturday’s visit of Arsenal, a team that the Portuguese has traditionally fared well against.
Chelsea would normally be odds-on to win this fixture although BetVictor take a dimmer view of the Blues’ chances in light of their drab start to the season and are taking on the champions with their quote of 29/20.
It means that a £20 bet on Chelsea would return you a profit of £29 and there might be a few takers banking on the fact that the home side will start turning the corner in what is sure to be a feisty encounter.
On the flip side, Arsenal are a 2/1 chance to deliver a fourth defeat of the season to Chelsea, with the Gunners sniffing blood when they head to Stamford Bridge for this London derby.
Arsene Wenger has a rotten record against Jose Mourinho although perhaps it’s time that the Frenchman saw his team win at Stamford Bridge and they did come away with a victory in the Community Shield match last month.
BetVictor have 59 markets available for the Premier League clash, with more to be added as we get closer to kick-off.
The bookies are expecting goals to be scored, with odds of 13/20 about both teams finding the net as has been the case in four of Chelsea’s first five matches.
If you’re thinking of backing the Gunners, then odds of 4/1 that they win the game and both teams score makes appeal considering that it’s a game that both teams will go out expecting to win.
However, perhaps it will be a case of back to basics for the home team who are 19/2 to win 1-0 and it could a case of battening down the hatches and trying to grind out a result against one of their title rivals.
