Tell me something: Who makes these odds? Really! Fulham maybe winless vs Chelsea for the last 7 H2H confrontations, but there were 3 draws in them, and two were at the Bridge. In other words, Fulham are 0-2-1 from their last 3 visits to Stamford Bridge, so how come Chelsea are as short as 1.45 (Expekt)?
Furthermore, Chelsea only won one of their last 5 EPL games (1 of the last 7 in all competitions) and it was against the foot of the table; Portsmouth. They drew 3 of the last 4 in EPL (4 of the last 5 in all competitions) and still the draw is priced at 4.76 (Pinnacle)??
Naturally Chelsea should win, but the bookies once again kill any value, Its not like Fulham will be walkovers.
Fulham are undefeated in their last 6 EPL fixtures (8 in all competitions), and have won over Man Utd and drawn to Tottenham for their most recent two. Yes I do realize these were at the Craven Cottage, but still, you beat Man Utd by 3-0 and are priced at 9.21 (Pinnacle) to beat Chelsea, which in trun makes the Chelsea price poor.
Hangeland is doubtful for the visitors, and Anelka should return to starting line-up of the Blues. Also a big boost for Ancelotti as the Ivoirian FA will allow Drogba and Kalou to play that final game before they’re off to serve their country in CAN. No Malouda though as he has been sent off on Saturday.
Sonner or later, Chelsea will have to get back to winning ways, and I don’t think Fulham will keep on doing what they’ve been doing of late, but –once again- it’s all about odds, isn’t it?
Chelsea to win but unless your happy betting at massive odds on leave the game alone for bettinfg and sit back and enjoy a Blues win.
