Chelsea Marching On?
POSTED: 29 August 2014
So last week’s pick of Sunderland on the Asian handicap against Man United was a winning bet, I hope that like myself you followed it up with MK Dons through the week against them as United really have problems. Is signing Di Maria the answer for them? Granted he will help, but in my eyes their problem lies in other areas so I doubt it. The 4-0 loss midweek against MK Dons, a side just 10 years old shows just how far United have slipped. Then for Van Gaal to come out and say he wasn’t completely shocked, well that amazed me – he won’t last long at the helm saying that!
They travel to newly promoted Burnley this weekend, and are 1.5 to win with Burnley trading at 6.0 – It’s a game I’d stay well away of, as at some point United’s front line will fire, albeit painting over cracks.
This weekend the game I’m looking at is Everton v Chelsea, where I believe Chelsea at 2.0 offer some good value. Everton have started with two 2-2 draws this season at Leicester and at home to Arsenal where many will say they threw their two-goal lead away, which I agree. I do note that it may be worth a small bet on 2-2 in this game at 17.0, reason being last season Everton’s first three games finished 1-1, so if they’ve already had the two 2-2’s could there be a third?
Personally I’m going to be backing Chelsea in this game as I believe the midfield that Chelsea have will overrun a misfiring Everton. I’m sure that over the season Everton won’t lose many at Goodison Park but Chelsea have hit the ground running this season and are one of the sides who are sure to be up there at the business end of the season.
Another bet I wouldn’t put people off is Liverpool at Spurs, 2.6 could be a big price come Sunday night.
Pick – Everton v Chelsea – Chelsea to win @ 2.0
