Bet on Man Utd at 7/2 to beat Chelsea and win title

| 01.03.2011

Manchester United will have one hand on the Premier League title if they secure victory at Chelsea and those believing they will win at Stamford Bridge may be best served to take advantage of one of the match specials for the game.

It is 4/9 in the Premier League betting that Manchester United win the title this season and they are currently four points clear of nearest challengers Arsenal with both having 11 fixtures remaining.

Their away game with Chelsea is arguably Manchester United’s biggest remaining test and if they can claim a first victory at Stamford Bridge since April 2002, the pressure will firmly be on the shoulders of Arsenal.

Manchester United’s betting odds are 23/10 to beat Chelsea, but 7/2 is being offered that the Red Devils complete the double of both winning at Stamford Bridge and winning the Premier League this season.

Chelsea know that anything other than a win against Manchester United would end their title aspirations as they are currently 15 points behind the leaders with a game in hand.

However, Chelsea do still have to face Manchester United twice and victory in these games and in their fixture in hand could cut their arrears to six points.

It is 28/1 that Chelsea beat Manchester United and win the Premier League.

Chelsea’s betting odds are 6/5 to take the three points off Manchester United, while they are 18/1 at present to win the Premier League.

The big question mark for Chelsea is whether Carlo Ancelotti will start both Fernando Torres and Didier Drogba in attack.

Among the match special odds are 8/11 that Fernando Torres starts the game and gets substituted, while it is 10/1 that Drogba starts from the bench but comes on to score the last goal.

A £25 stake on the scorecast of Torres scoring first and Chelsea beating Manchester United 2-0 would return £750. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
