Chelsea vs Burnley 12 Aug 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Chelsea takes on Burnley at home in their first game of the Premier League season. Both teams will be excited to get the season started and it will be interesting to see how the respective sides line up. Chelsea will be hoping to get all three points with ease while Burnley will hope to cause an upset on opening day.

Chelsea has had a poor transfer window as they have failed to build their team well. Morata has joined the club which is a good move for the West London side but this team still needs to improve their midfield and defense and they have failed to do that. This team should not struggle in this match since they are at home and are by far the better side but I think they might have problems later on in the season.

Burnley, on the other hand, knows that they are not favorites to win. This side has been horrible away from home and as a result, I don’t like their chances of winning this season. It was very surprising that they avoided relegation last season but they might not be so lucky this year if they don’t start to win on the road. I think they will be beaten in this game.

We are not getting a great price on betting on Chelsea to win this game so I think it is best that we avoid this bet. We are getting a good price on the goals being scored and I think that is the way to go. The over 2.5 goals is the better bet since Chelsea should win 3-0 or 4-0 in my opinion.


Over 2.5 goals
