Chelsea Looks for 1st Win vs Liverpool in 3 Meetings

The Premier League game of the week this week is an absolute cracker as we see Liverpool make a visit to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea on Friday afternoon.

SHARK BITES
  • Both teams have scored in the last 3 and in 5 of the last 6 matchups between these teams.
  • Liverpool has not dropped a contest to Chelsea since a League Cup match in January 2015.
  • The Reds are coming off a 4-1 drubbing of defending league champs Leicester City.

Although Chelsea has not beaten Liverpool in three games, they did earn an absolutely massive draw against them late in the Premier League season in 2015. Liverpool was up 1-0 and in position to win the league with the clock ticking down until captain Steven Gerrard slipped and coughed the ball up to Chelsea, who proceeded to sprint down the pitch and score the goal that ended up clinching the Premier League title.

The Reds got their revenge the next year at Stamford Bridge when they embarrassed Chelsea 3-1 in front of their own fans. Both teams, however, are under new management since that fixture and Chelsea has looked like they could once again take down the title.

Chelsea and Liverpool are two of the highest-scoring teams in England’s top flight so expect some fireworks Friday and consider a bet on BTTS (both teams to score). The line for that prop is currently -180 but with these teams, it’s been as stone-cold of a lock as you can get in BTTS markets.

Bovada has game lines up and a variety of props. The moneyline is pretty interesting as Chelsea is offering plus money as the home team. If I was capping this game, I would probably have Chelsea around -150 so I think there is plenty of value on the Blue at home.
