Bournemouth v Chelsea: Signs point to Blues triumph on South Coast

| 26.10.2017

Chelsea head to the Vitality Stadium on the back of entertaining victories over Watford and Everton.

And we’re expecting more of the same as the Blues face an AFC Bournemouth side they’ve dominated in recent times.

Antonio Conte’s men have won three meetings on the trot against the Cherries, with all of those victories secured by a margin of two goals or more.

With the visitors having won five games by multiple goals this season, the Chelsea -1 handicap looks good value at odds of 8/5.

The Blues have been involved in some hugely entertaining contests of late, with their last three games producing a combined 13 goals.

A simple Over 3.5 Goals is available at 31/20, but we prefer the look of Chelsea to Win and Over 3.5 at a tempting 27/10.

In the goalscorer markets, Michy Batshuayi is definitely one to watch.

The pacy Belgian has managed a Carabao Cup hat-trick and a brace against Watford in his last nine games. There’s 9/2 about the 24-year-old netting Two or More Goals on the South Coast.

As for Bournemouth, punters could do far worse than Andrew Surman. The midfielder has registered in two of the last five for Eddie Howe’s side, and is a sizeable 17/2 in the Anytime Scorer market.

If you’re looking for a lively longshot, Chelsea to Win From Behind also looks a good call at 15/2.

They’ve done just that in two of their past six games, while Bournemouth surrendered a lead in last month’s 2-1 loss to Everton.

In the Match Betting, Chelsea are favourites at 8/13, with a Cherries win 21/5 and the draw priced up at 3s.
