For all the doom and gloom surrounding Chelsea after Saturday’s 1-0 defeat away at West Ham, the 3 points they picked up by beating Huddersfield 3-1 at the John Smith’s tonight has seen them go level with Man Utd in joint second place.
The Blues dominated the match with 64% possession, and they had 12 shots (5 on target), compared to the hosts, who had 7 shots, with just 2 on target.
It now looks pretty obvious that the title race is over. In Premier League Betting, Chelsea are a massive 50/1, third favourites behind Man City and Man Utd. It’s in the Top 4 Finish Betting market, where the real battle seems to be taking place now.
Manchester City are already unbackable, meaning there are 5 teams in the running for the remaining 3 Champions League places (sorry Burnley fans, I’m counting Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs as the 5).
William Hill have Chelsea as 2/9 third favourites behind City and Man United. Jose’s men are a short looking 1/7, Liverpool are 1/2, with Arsenal and Spurs both at 6/4. Okay, Burnley are 250/1 with Skybet – they are as short as 25/1 with Hills, there I’ve given them a mention – and rightly so, as they are having an outstanding season.
