Chelsea will look to continue their good form this weekend as they face Burnley at Stamford Bridge. Antonio Conte and his men have looked pretty good this season and they are currently two wins from two games and they will look to keep up that perfect Premier League record. Burnley on the other hand have also been looking good and their win over Liverpool in their last outing showed what they are capable of.
The problem for Burnley will be that they are away from home and for a club like this, the home crowd is almost 50% of their team. At Stamford Bridge it is going to be tough because the players will be up against not only some great players, but also a Chelsea home ground that are very loud and energetic. Stamford Bridge is a hard place to visit and I think that Burnley will lose here.
Chelsea have been heavily reliant on late goals from Diego Costa but other than the Spanish superstar, the likes of Eden Hazard and Willian have also looked pretty good. This side can really compete for the top places of the Premier League and wins in these games will be important.
As far as betting is concerned, I think we are getting way too short of a price to bet on Chelsea to win so I am going to avoid that play. I think a good option though is looking both teams to score. Chelsea have had a habit of conceding goals since their defense is not looking great at the moment so we can get a pretty good price on this bet. Other than both teams to score, the other lines are not looking very appealing so I think they are best to avoid.
