Premiership – Chelsea vs Crystal Palace Betting Preview

Chelsea head into this match knowing that they can lift the Premier League title for the first time since 2010 and they can showcase it in front of their fans at the Bridge. Unbeaten in their last 6 matches it looks unlikely that the Blues are going to concede their chances of winning the title this Sunday in the league’s early kick-off. Jose Mourinho will be looking to add to his already strong squad this summer with Gareth Bale, Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane some of his preferred targets.

Crystal Palace have been playing some excellent football since the arrival of Alan Pardew in the Manager’s seat, they have risen up to 12th in the table and are now all but mathematically safe from relegation. Yanick Bolasie and Wilfried Zaha are in such fine form that I think Palace will struggle to keep them in the upcoming transfer window with both wingers considered to be worth in the region of £15m each. The Eagles have lost their last two matches on the bounce so they won’t fancy their chances in London this weekend.

Chelsea Team News

The hosts have doubts over forwards Loic Remy and Diego Costa, both could return after spells out on the sideline with respective calf and hamstring injuries.

Crystal Palace Team News

The visitors look to be without Joe Thomas until the end of the season whilst Marouanne Chamakh, Frazier Campbell and Joel Ward will face late fitness tests to see if they can play.

Chelsea vs Crystal Palace Current Betting Odds Market

Chelsea are the clear favourites going into this match and are currently best odds of 4/11 with Bet365 – £200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers, For me this seems to be a fair price and worth backing considering they are the home team and in good form.

The Draw doesn’t seem likely as these two teams have not drawn in their last 5 encounters with one another. However given the attacking nature of both sides we could see a scored draw. Betfred offer the best value for the draw @ 9/2 – Bet £10 & Get £30 Free Bets for New Customers.

Crystal Palace are the team with nothing to lose in this game, they’re safe from relegation this season and will see this as an opportunity to prevent Mourinho’ side lifting the title for at least another week. BetVictor offer a whopping 19/2 for Palace to win – £25 Free Bets for New Customers.

Chelsea vs Crystal Palace Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

Chelsea will be feeling confident going into this match and will not be afraid of taking risks to go and win the title and put in a fine performance to their ever faithful home supporters. I expect Eden Hazard to get on the score sheet at some point as he has been so influential all season. I think Thibaut Courtois will keep a clean sheet in this match.

Crystal Palace head into this game on the back of two straight home defeats to teams below them in the table which suggests they will struggle at Stamford Bridge. With that being said they do have the ability to trouble Chelsea and could get a goal in this game.

My Banker is going to be Hazard to win man of the match.

My saver is going to be Hazard to score first.
