Chelsea v Tottenham – Premier League Betting Guide: Wednesday 27th Feb 2019

Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur 20:00

Well there is sure to be a frosty atmosphere at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night after all the chaos surrounding Chelsea manager – Maurizio Sarri – and their goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga in last Sunday’s League Cup Final.

It’s back to league business here though and a tough game against Spurs might not be the order of the day for the Chelsea players that had to play extra-time only on Sunday.

Spurs are also on a bit of a recovery mission after losing away at Burnley last Saturday, but even though the title might be a tall order for them, a top four place is still key.

The match betting sees Chelsea on offer at 2.50, the Draw 3.40 and Spurs 3.00.

The sides also met three times this season – once in the league and twice in the League Cup – and with two wins, to Chelsea’s one, it’s Spurs that hold the current upperhand.

In fact, Spurs have won their last two league head-to-heads vs Chelsea 3-1, so this score might tempt punters in at 23.00.

Both teams have scored in 7 of the last 9 clashes, while we’ve seen Over 2.5 Goals in 7 of the last 9 too – both teams to score is 1.66 and Over 2.5 Goals is 1.90.

It’s worth noting that Chelsea have lost just once at home to Spurs in the Premier League, but in their current state and a hard game over City at the weekend there are sure to be a lot of backers for Spurs here.

Having said that, Chelsea did play well on Sunday so as long as they can put that result behind them and their own fans don’t get on their backs then they can’t be ruled out either.

A tough game to call, but with 78% of the last 9 clashes seeing OVER 2.5 GOALS then at 1.90 this looks the way to go here. You feel that both teams have a bit to prove at the moment, but you also feel that if Spurs get the first goal there is every chance the home fans will get restless and that will make it harder for the Chelsea players to respond – we’ll see!

BEST BET: OVER 2.5 GOALS @1.90
