Chelsea v Newcastle Tips & Odds PreviewEnglish Premier League, Football Betting Tips
Saturday 25 August 2012, KO 17.30
Chelsea have started their Premier League campaign brightly under manager Roberto Di Matteo, but the visit of Newcastle will represent their toughest test to date. Newcastle allayed fears that last season’s success was merely a blip with a 2-1 defeat of Spurs in their opener and they will be hoping to take three points from Stamford Bridge for the second time this year.
The Magpies won 2-0 at the Bridge late last season, helped by a stunning Papiss Cisse goal (pictured celebrating). Chelsea’s defence has looked vulnerable so far, no more so than against Reading midweek, and 5/6 for both teams to score seems fair.
For all their defensive frailties however Chelsea look like a team who can score, and score a lot, so get on over 3.5 goals at 7/5. Newcastle also look slightly large at 11/2 to win, while there is no value in the Blues’ odds of 1/2.
