Chelsea FC vs Southampton FC – Betting Tips for the game

Chelsea came up with a second 1-0 victory in the last four matches as they beat Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park during the weekend. This was the fourth win in the last five matches for the blues.

Southampton had to go through a second consecutive home defeat as they were beaten 3-1 by Manchester City during the weekend. The loss comes just a few days after the 2-1 defeat against West Ham.

The reverse fixture between Chelsea and Southampton produced a 3-0 success for the former with Eden Hazard scoring the opener. Chelsea’s last home match against the Saints produced a 2-0 win for the blues. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Chelsea.

Prediction and betting tip:
Chelsea win at 1.28   

Chelsea FC vs Southampton FC – Match odds

Southampton are at a decent price in order to win the match, but we will not go with this choice. Even though the Saints will offer a decent resistance to Chelsea, the Blues will be desperate to get back to winning ways at home. The recent few matches at Stamford Bridge have not been great from Chelsea, who have struggled with creating chances at will – especially against teams that sit back and defend. Our preview would go with a win for Chelsea, who are expected to go through a tough game.

Match Prediction:
Chelsea win at 1.28   

Chelsea vs Southampton draw odds: 6.50

Southampton win odds: 11.00

Chelsea FC vs Southampton FC – Correct Score odds

Chelsea have been able to manage around two goals per game at home while they have conceded around a goal per match. Southampton will have a decent threat going forward and Danny Ings was rested for the match against Manchester City. Southampton are expected to press high up the pitch while still defending with numbers. Our correct score prediction would go with a Chelsea 2-0 win.

Correct Score Prediction:
Chelsea 2-0 win at 7.00   

Chelsea FC vs Southampton FC – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Southampton are expected to play in the same manner as they did against Manchester City – defend deep and press in an intense fashion. Chelsea have struggled against such teams in recent weeks and this game is likely to be no different. The Blues may have to settle for a low scoring game and our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

Goals odds and prediction:
Total goals under 2.5 at 2.50   

Chelsea FC vs Southampton FC – First Goalscorer odds

The absence of Olivier Giroud and the transfer rumours surrounding Alvaro Morata mean that Eden Hazard is likely to be used as a centre forward once again. The Belgian came up with the opener in the reverse fixture back at the St Mary’s Stadium. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Hazard.

First goalscorer prediction:
Eden Hazard at 3.75
