We preview both of the televised games on Sunday, featuring Burnley v Chelsea at Turf Moor, followed by Swansea v Leicester at the Liberty Stadium.
Burnley v Chelsea
|Burnley (+2)||Asian Handicap||4/11||Unibet|
|Under 2.5||Total Goals||11/12||Unibet|
|Chelsea 1-0||Correct Score||11/2||Paddy Power|
|Burnley 1-0||Correct Score||20/1||Paddy Power|
League leaders Chelsea are 4/9 favourites here and we feel that the boomakers may have slightly underated the Clarets by offering them at odds of 8/1 at home.
The Blues should be favourites of course, but the Clarets are a tough proposition at Turf Moor – while they have the worst away form in the league this season (W0, D1, L10), they are the fourth best at home (W9, D1, L3), including 7 wins in their last 8.
Even defeats to Arsenal and Manchester City here were by a single goal and we will confidently back them with a 2 goal start on the Asian Handicap at 4/11 with Unibet.
With this bet you only lose if Chelsea win by 3 clear goals – and they have only done that once in their 12 games away from home this season, despite winning 8 of them.
Chelsea have won 3 of their last 7 away games 1-0, and Burnley have won 3 of their last 4 at home 1-0, so we recommend both 1-0’s here at 11/2 and 20/1 respectively.
Finally, we suggest a maximum bet on Under 2.5 Goals at 11/12 with Unibet.
Swansea v Leicester
|Gylfi Sigurdsson (ew)||First Goalscorer||6/1||Paddy Power|
|Yes||Both Teams To Score||4/5||Betfred|
|Swansea 3-1||Correct Score||20/1||BetVictor|
|Swansea 3-2||Correct Score||30/1||BetVictor|
|Over 2.5||Total Goals||11/10||Paddy Power|
|Over 3.5||Total Goals||27/10||Unibet|
A relegation dogfight in South Wales, with both teams on 21 points for the season.
The champions Leicester are without a win on the road this season (D3, L9), while Swansea’s new coach, Paul Clement, has overseen 3 wins in his 5 games in charge.
Gylfi Sigurdsson has been their key player this season, with 8 goals and 7 assists, and if he is allowed the freedom to create chances we expect Swansea to prevail.
The Icelandic midfielder has scored in their last three games, including at Anfield, and is worth backing each-way to score first at a stand-out 6/1 with Paddy Power.
The Foxes have yet to score a league goal in 2017, but as Swansea have the worst defence at home this season (28 conceded), back Both Teams To Score at 4/5.
We also recommend backing Swansea to win 3-1 and 3-2 at best odds of 20/1 and 30/1 respectively with BetVictor, plus bets on Over 2.5 Goals and Over 3.5 Goals.
