Exchange layers should expect more Chelsea spoiling

| 24.04.2015

The Premier League title looks to be heading to Stamford Bridge after Chelsea beat Manchester United last week to extend their lead to 10 points.

However, with six games left to play, Arsenal will look to beat their rivals and make their march to be crowned Premier League champions for the first time since 2010 slightly less comfortable.

We take a look through some of the big games this weekend and highlight where the real value lays on the Exchange. Let’s kick it off with the opening match in the Premier League.

SotonvSpursThere’s only one point separating these two sides in the battle for sixth place. Southampton (2.12have enjoyed a fantastic season after the turmoil they went through in the summer transfer window.

Their success comes from having a resolute defence and they currently hold the best defensive record in the league conceding only 24 league goals.

On the other hand, Tottenham (3.95have conceded 47 goals but have had the benefit of having an in-form striker in Harry Kane who has scored 20 league goals in his first season as a starter.

Tottenham have won their last five league games against Southampton but will be in for a difficult game against this highly organised Ronald Koeman side.

ProfWe expect Harry Kane will have his eye on winning the Golden Boot especially with Tottenham not having anything to play for. We expect him to be a little bit more greedy in the remaining five games  which is why there’s value in backing him to get the first goal (6.0) or score anytime (2.78) against Southampton.


Chelsea (3.3) will look to take one step closer to confirming themselves as champions with a victory against Arsenal (2.42).

However, with nine straight Premier League wins, Arsene Wenger will see this as a real opportunity to finally get the beating of Jose Mourinho.

Can Arsenal close the gap to seven points and exert a little pressure on Chelsea?

Both sides will be looking at their key men to have an impact and with Eden Hazard scoring five in his last seven and Olivier Giroud with ten in the last 12 there’s definitely value in backing either to be the First Goalscorer or to score anytime.

ProfIt’s the business end of the season and we expect to see what a Jose Mourinho team does best…grind out results. That’s why we see great value in playing the over/under markets and laying against high scores. Lay over 3.5 goals at 5.0 or Over 2.5 goals at 2.48.
