FOOTBALL BETTING: A point clear, with a game in hand, Chelsea can increase their advantage in the title race by collecting all three points at Hull City tonight. Chris Hutcheon predicts a narrow away victory.
The hosts, Victor Chandler’s 14/1 outsiders, have drawn three of their last four Premiership fixtures but Carlo Ancelotti’s side should have a little too much for the battling Tigers and are set to justify the 3/10 favouritism given to them at Betdaq.
However, Chelsea could only edge out Hull on the campaign’s opening day, while Saturday’s trip to Burnley saw them shade it 2-1 and subsequently, a relatively close encounter could be on the cards.
Bet365’s 11/4 for them to prevail by a one-goal margin therefore appeals and at a slightly bigger price, it could be worth considering Betfred’s 13/2 chalked against the Blues notching the contest’s only goal.
Didier Drogba could be in line to return for Chelsea and he’s a tempting 10/3 with William Hill to follow up his brace against the Tigers in the pair’s meeting at Stamford Bridge by opening the scoring in this one, but the Blues may nevertheless have to wait to for the opening, which is even money (Stan James) to arrive after the 27th minute.
