Back Chelsea to win at the Bridge with a bit to spare

Football Betting Tips for Chelsea vs Luton Town from Stamford Bridge on Friday night; Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea are still looking for their first win of the current Premier League season. They take on Luton Town on Friday night, with the Premier League new boys also looking for their first victory back in the top flight. 

  • Who - Chelsea vs Luton Town
  • Competition - 2023/24 Premier League 
  • Where - Stamford Bridge, London, England
  • When - Friday, 25th August, 2023
  • Time - 8 pm BST

The season has got off to a poor start for both Chelsea and Luton. Chelsea have started off with a draw and a defeat, while Luton have only played once, losing 4-1 away to Brighton. The Hatter fixture last weekend was postponed due to building work at Kenilworth Road.

Anyway, all jokes about the building work lasting all season, aside, this wasn’t helpful to Luton. The match that was postponed was against Burnley, a match that Luton boss Rob Edwards would have had aspirations of winning. Instead, the Hatters head to Stamford Bridge on zero points, and already sitting just outside of the bottom three.

As for Chelsea, they have just one point from their two matches played. The 1-1 draw at home to Liverpool on the opening weekend would have given Pochettino plenty of hope. But despite dominating at times in the defeat at West Ham, the facts are they lost 3-1 to a team that played the last 25 minutes with 10 men.

Surely, the Blues must be expecting their first win of the season when they face Luton! Let’s see what the bookmakers think.

Chelsea vs Luton Town Betting Tips

The football betting odds clearly think that this will be a home win, and we completely agree with that sentiment. But at ⅕, Chelsea are not a good value bet. 

Chelsea haven’t kept a clean sheet in 11 Premier League games now either. But despite this, we can’t see them not winning. So the question is, are we set to see both teams score on Friday? 

We’re not sure, we think that Luton might be a little bit like rabbits in headlights. And we feel this could be a runaway victory for the home team.

For our football betting tips we’re going for a Bet Builder. Nicolas Jackson looked lively against Liverpool, and he also showed he is a bit hot headed against West Ham. Jackson is 8/13 to score or be booked.

While in the handicap betting, Chelsea are 4/6 to win from -1, and 15/8 from -2. We’re tempted with the 15/8, but we’re going to play it safe and stick with the 4/6 for -1.

We feel that the best football tips for today are Jackson to be booked or score, combined with Chelsea to win from -1. Together in a Bet Builder, it is 2.3. So for a £10 bet, you would get back £23.
