We are getting closer and closer to the end of the season and for Chelsea this means it is time for them to slowly wake up and end this nightmare of a season. This side has fallen from the graces in the matter of months and the shock has been massive for the players, supporters and fans alike. This weekend they will want to return to their best and use their talented players to hopefully win against a relegation treated Newcastle side.
Chelsea are coming off a draw against Manchester United in which a draw was probably the correct result. This game could have gone either way but Chelsea would be happy since defeat was near. Nevertheless, they will take a bit of confidence out of that game and they will hope that they can build on it and have a big win at home this weekend.
Newcastle on the other hand will look to take advantage of Chelsea’s bad season and set something out of this match. This may seem hard to do since they themselves are playing poorly but they are coming off a win and they have a bit of momentum about them. At the moment I just don’t trust Chelsea and I think that this match might see a draw.
As far as betting is concerned, betting the draw is paying good money as always and in my opinion placing a smallish bet is the way to go here. We are getting a great price and a small bet will pay us enough. This is one of the riskier bets but I believe it will get there so I will be putting a bet on it. Also if we want to look at the goal line, taking the under 2.5 goals is the much better bet since low scoring games have been a trend with the Blues as of late.
