West Brom v Chelsea: Back the Blues to secure the title tonight

| 12.05.2017

In recent years The Hawthorns has proven a tricky place to go for Chelsea, but all the signs point to Antonio Conte’s men securing the Premier League title this evening.

Our traders certainly think so, with 4/11 on offer for the London outfit to win tonight and claim the top tier for the sixth time.

The Blues have only won one of their last five visits to the Black Country outfit, but it’s hard to see another West Bromwich Albion win here.

We have the hosts way out at 15/2, while the form table has Tony Pulis’ men plum last.

The Baggies have picked up just one point from their last five games, and are in danger of slipping out of the eighth place which has been theirs since New Years’ Eve.

They’ve lost four of their last five home games too – failing to score in each, so backing No in Both Teams to Score looks good at 3/4.

Chelsea have roared back from defeat to Manchester United, and have scored at least three times in each of their last four league and cup games.

So the 21/20 on Conte’s men to win on the -1 handicap should prove popular.

And it’s 27/10 they win by -2 for the third straight fixture.

Picking a goalscorer could be a little harder, with Chelsea’s last six goals netted by six different players.

But the odds have Diego Costa favourite at 14/5 to break the deadlock, with Eden Hazard up next at 7/2.

The pick of the odds though looks to be Chelsea to win and over 2.5 goals.

We’re 11/10 on the Blues to prevail with at least three goals netted, a result which has come in for eight of Chelsea’s last 10 games.
