[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Chelsea win at 1.28[/bet_tip_now]
Bournemouth are at a price of 9.00. It looks an attractive option considering that the Cherries have picked up two wins in the last five trips to the Bridge. However, Chelsea’s excellent start will provide them with a huge deal of confidence, and Eden Hazard will be in a much better condition than last week. The transfer window also shutting down is also a boost to players who have been linked to foreign clubs. Even though Chelsea have been playing well only in patches, they have the quality to get away with a comfortable win – as per our preview.

Chelsea vs Bournemouth draw odds: 5.75
Bournemouth win odds: 9.00
Correct Score odds
The two teams have plenty of attacking threat within the ranks. Even when Alvaro Morata has been unable to find the back of the net on a consistent basis, Chelsea have goalscorers across the pitch. Players like Jorginho will be capable of unlocking tight defences. Meanwhile, Bournemouth have two forwards who have an excellent relationship on the pitch. Our correct score prediction would back a Chelsea 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The game will witness two teams that have managed a combined 14 goals so far in the campaign. Both clubs have also been struggling hard to keep out opposition as they have picked up just one clean sheet in the opening three rounds of the competition. Our total goals prediction would go with a game that has more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Bournemouth will come in with an ambition to win the match but they are unlikely to leave a lot of space for the likes of Pedro and Alvaro Morata to exploit. In such tight situations, the probability of a penalty would be higher while Eden Hazard is also a player capable of scoring in tight situations with his mesmerising skills. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Hazard.
