Chelsea vs Newcastle United Betting Tips

  • Both Teams to Score - Yes 18/25 
  • Total Goals - over 2.5 37/50

Chelsea vs Newcastle United Match Odds

Both teams come into this fixture on the back of a terrible run in all competitions. Newcastle United failed to qualify for the next round of the UEFA Champions League, finishing 4th in their group. They had two back-to-back losses in the premier league before securing a 3 -0 victory at home to Fulham. Coach Eddie Howe will have this tournament as part of his plans for this season. 

For Chelsea, the new man at the helm has not enjoyed the success he sort-out to have this season. His players have not been clinical in front of goal and his defense has not been impressive of late. They lost key players in defence to injury, including Wesley Fofana, Trevoh Chalobah, Ben Chillwell, Marc Cucurella and Captain Reece James. 

With Newcastle United still feeling the pain of being knocked of the champions league and Chelsea long injury list. It will be a tight game but there will be some note worth moments throughout the encounter.

The odds-on Chelsea to win this fixture are 41/50, 59/20 for the draw and 31/10 for a Newcastle United win.

Both Teams to Score Yes 18/25 

Both these teams have one notable absentee. For Newcastle United it is their first-choice goalkeeper Nick Pope who is out on a Shoulder Injury. Chelsea too is missing their first choice shot stopper Robert Sanchez who is out due to Muscular problems. While Newcastle United Can Count on the experienced Martin Dubravka and Chelsea the young Djordjie Petrovic. The void left by the missing shot stoppers will be felt and I am convinced that the strikers will take advantage of this gap in the defense. This will lead to both teams finding the back of the net, the odds of which are set at 18/25.

Total Goals - over 2.5 37/50 

History between these two sides states that this fixture has ended with less than 2.5 goals in 8 of their last 10 encounters. Newcastle have been in games that had more than 2.5 goals in 4 out of their last 5 encounters. Chelsea have been involved in games with more than 2.5 goals in 5 out of their last 7 matches. From the stats history will not be repeating itself in this fixture and these teams will be finding the back of the net in this game. odds on it being more than 2.5 are set at 37/50.
