Chelsea Betting Preview
Chelsea comes into this game sitting in 12th place in the standings having picked up 43 points. Chelsea can’t wait for this season to be over after how disappointing they have been this season. Chelsea faced off against Manchester United and they were defeated 4-1. The only goal for Chelsea was in the 89th minute by Joao Felix. One issue for Chelsea all season has been the injuries. Benoit Badiashile, Armando Broja, Raheem Sterling, N'Golo Kante, Marc Cucurella, Ben Chilwell and Marcus Bettinelli are all dealing with injuries and they aren’t going to be able to go in this game.
Newcastle Betting Preview
Newcastle sits in 4th place in the standings having picked up 70 points. Newcastle has picked up a point in each of his last three games but in the last game they picked up only one point. Newcastle failed to score any goals against Leicester City and that led to the 0-0 draw. Nick Pope, Emil Krafth, Javier Manquillo, Jamaal Lascelles, Matt Ritchie, Joelinton and Joe Willock are al dealing with injuries heading into this game and they aren’t going to be able to go here. Callum Wilson and Alexander Isak will both start here, and they are going to need to have big games to find success here.
Shane’s Free Pick
I don’t trust this Chelsea offense and they are going to have some major issues getting anything going here. Newcastle is also dealing with plenty of injuries to the attack and I expect that Cheslea’s defense is going to lockdown here. This is game where it wouldn’t be shocking if it ended 0-0. Back the under 2.5 goals to cash.
