Chelsea vs West Brom 12 February 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

The final game of this round in the English Premier League will take place between Chelsea and West Brom at Stamford Bridge. Both teams will be desperate to win this game and that should result in a good game of football.

West Brom are a side that are in real trouble at the moment. This team looks down and it seems like relegation is very likely at the moment. West Brom will feel that a few wins will be massive for them to avoid the drop zone but these wins look very hard to come by as there are no goal scoring options. Playing away from home against Chelsea seems like a very hard task and I think it might be too much for them.

The home side has seen better days also. The manager looks like he wants to leave and his players seem like they don’t want to play. This is not a good situation for the Blues to find themselves. Winning games is becoming very important for Chelsea since the battle for the top 4 is getting intense with Arsenal and Tottenham closing the gap quickly. This is a game where Chelsea should win easily and I think they will win since they are far too good to lose against West Brom at home.

As far as betting is concerned, I think we are getting a pretty good price to bet on the under 2.5 goals. Both sides have struggled to score in the past few month and due to that reason I see a 1-0 or 2-0 win to Chelsea. We are not getting a good price to bet on the outright result and as a result that is a wager which I would avoid.

Under 2.5 goals
