Bournemouth vs Chelsea 23 April 2016: EPL Preview and Predictions

Bournemouth will be taking on Chelsea this weekend in a game that will have very little consequence on the outcome of this season. Both teams are safe and neither will make it any close to Europe so I think we are going so see more or less a dead rubber. Nevertheless, a win is a win and both teams will want one, it is just a matter of how much they will want it.

Bournemouth have to be the more likely team to win here since they are at home and their home fans are something to play for. This side has surprised many people this season and I think they will want to win this game since it will be a win over Chelsea and for a club like the hosts it is a pretty big accomplishment. The season is almost over for this team and for most of the players they will not be playing Euros in the summer so I think we might get a strong showing from them.

Chelsea on the other hand are already in holiday mode and I think they will show no effort what so ever. We have seen this from them in the last two match which they both lost and I think this will end in a similar result for them. They don’t care anymore and the players are all getting ready for a holiday or the Euros so we can expect a poor performance from the Blues.

I think betting wise, our best option is to take the outright result and bet on Bournemouth to win this game. We are getting a pretty good price and we get home more times than we do not so it seems pretty profitable in my opinion.
