Will Chelsea be able to keep the current top position and grab the fifth title in the clubs 110 years of history? We have seen Manchester City and Manchester United dominate the league in the past 5 years, but this year most probably we will see Chelsea return to its glory. The race for the title will not be easy at all considering Chelsea has to play against Arsenal, Manchester and Liverpool in the rest of the season, but considering the other opponents it shouldn’t be much of a problem for Chelsea to keep the needed difference in points.
Chelsea to win the Premier League
This is currently the top bet at all the sportsbooks. The odds range from 1/12 to 1/25 depending on the sportsbook, but currently this might be a very safe bet considering that Chelsea has half a dozen relatively easy opponents in the couple of months for some easy but precious points to keep the top position.
Petr Cech to Leave Chelsea
Cech has had a rough time this season appearing only on 5 games. Formerly the undisputed Chelsea goalkeeper now is being shunned by ten years younger Belgian uprising star, Curtois. The speculations are that Cech has had his best years at Chelsea and that in the summer he will leave Chelsea, with Arsenal being the next probable destination. Or, will he try to compete for the goalkeeper’s position with his younger colleague?
Next Permanent Manager
Ever since the speculations that Mourinho could leave Chelsea to return back to Real Madrid have arisen, sportsbooks have began to offer the Next Permanent Manager bet. Currently Jurgen Klopp has the best odds (7/2) for being the next Chelsea manager, with Pep Guardiola as the next best option (4/1).
Chelsea Win against Manchester United on April 18th
Chelsea appears to be the better side this season. The first game was played last October at Old Trafford and ended with a draw, while in the last 6 games Chelsea has been the better side with 3 wins (one at Old Trafford) and 3 draws all when ManUtd was playing home. Now the game will be played at Stamford Bridge so it will be very difficult for ManUtd to win or come close to a draw especially if they do badly against Manchester City in the game prior to that. A win against ManUtd will be very important to Chelsea because it will mean a step closer to the title and boosted moral for another tough game afterwards against Arsenal.
Over 2.5 Goals against Leicester City
Here is one safe bet that you can make. Leicester has been dreadful and has long ago secured the last position on the table. This game will come only 3 days after the Arsenal game, which means Mourinho will either rest some of the stars and give chance to players that want to prove themselves (if everything goes well against Manchester United and Arsenal) or he will take the best eleven in this game in order to secure the 3 points. Either way, Chelsea players will be motivated to score as many goals as needed to win the game.
