Chelsea take on Watford in what should be all but a dead rubber. Watford are safe and are on holiday mode while Chelsea have already won the title and are now resting up and preparing for their FA Cup final game. As a result of this, we may not get a great game out of it. That being said, it is still worth looking at from a betting angle.
Watford have had massive defensive issues all season and it is unlikely that this will improve in this game. This team is also on a massive losing streak and their defensive work is a large reason for this. That being said, this team has the ability to score goals so both teams to score is a bet that makes a lot of sense in my opinion. Building on that, it is also highly unlikely that this game will be a low scoring affair so I am going also suggest betting on the over 2.5 goals as an option.
The second betting pick is in regards to the overall result of this game. While neither team will be too worried about the outcome, Chelsea are clearly the better team and while betting on them to win outright makes no sense looking at the price we are getting, betting on them to lead at half time and full time makes sense and is a bet that is paying well. Chelsea is more than likely to lead from the start and this bet considering the price is a very good one to make.
