Chelsea 4/7 For Premiership After 7-0 Win

FOOTBALL BETTING: A Kalou hattrick helped Chelsea thrash Stoke 7-0 on Sunday, putting them back on top of the Premier League. Bet365 say they are 4/7 to stay there. Compare all football odds.

With 2 games to go for both Chelsea and Manchester United, with only 1 point separating them, the title race is going right down to the wire. Only 9 days ago, bookies were ready to push Man Utd out to 100/1 if the gap was to become 7 points but victories over Man City and Spurs means United are now a 6/4 chance with Victor Chandler.

Man United must play Sunderland and Stoke and Chelsea have to presume The Red Devils will pick up all 6 points. Chelsea must travel to Liverpool, as well as hosting Wigan, and the trip to Anfield will be critical, not to mention difficult.

For a slightly better price on Chelsea winning silverware, you can double the 4/7 on them to win the league (888sport) with 1/4 about them to win the FA Cup in 90 minutes (Paddy Power). Chelsea’s ability to score past weak opposition has been evident this season (9 against Stoke, 10 against Sunderland, 7 against Portsmouth) and the above double comes just shy of 1/1.

In the league’s top scorer market, Rooney leads the way with 26 to Drogba’s 25. Rooney has a slight injury, meaning he may miss one of two remaining games, therefore Drogba is actually 1/1 fav with Betfred, while Rooney can be backed at 6/5 with Paddy Power.

The race for 4th place tightened further as Aston Villa and Liverpool threw themselves right back in the mix. Spurs are still favourite and can be backed as large as 1/1 with Blue Square. Spurs (64 pts) and Man City (63 pts) still have 3 games to play, compared to Aston Villa (64 pts) and Liverpool (62 pts) who only have 2 games. Liverpool must play Chelsea and can get a maximum of 68 pts, which you would have to presume is simply not enough, Bet365 make them 20/1 for 4th place. VIlla will do themselves massive favours if they can pick up 6 points, especially as the must play Man City as well, Villa are 8/1 with Ladbrokes.
But it is perhaps Man City who have it in their hands. At 6/4 with Betdaq, if they collect 9 points from an available 9, they will have 4th place guaranteed, due to the fact they must play Spurs and Villa. It is perhaps Villa and Liverpool with the momentum but the other two have the games, ensuring a race that will go to the last day.

In the relegation fight, Burnley were finally demoted and unfortunately for Hull, whilst they are not mathematically down, they are 6 points adrift of West Ham with 2 to play with a vastly inferior goal difference. All but Betfair have withdrawn the relegation market.
