The Betting

Match Result: All Markets

Chelsea 2/7

Draw 5/1

Leicester 11/1

Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change


Chelsea have made a habit of winning home games with clean sheets in recent times but Leicester have only failed to register a goal in 1 of their away fixtures. Admittedly that shut out came at Manchester United but they have contributed to the scoring at Arsenal and Liverpool, albeit in defeat.

I’ll chance my arm with both sides finding the net.

Bet: Both teams to score? (yes) at 41/40
