As the new season kicked off, Chelsea Premier League predictions and odds are now available. The team has had an excellent second half of the season in 2020 and ended it with a UCL title. Speculations as to how Chelsea will perform in the current campaign are rising. Tuchel has reinforced the team’s squad with several talented players during the summer transfer window. Therefore, expectations are now greater than ever from the German manager and his players. With that in mind, bookies have published several options for you to make your own predictions. The options include the number of points, scored, and conceded goals. Here is how and where you can place your bets.
Tuchel Elevated Chelsea to a New Level
The 2020/ 2021 season was an emotional roller coaster for Chelsea and their fans. In the first half of the season, the team struggled with Frank Lampard with no signs of improvements in the future. As a result, the board of directors decided to release him from the position of the team’s head coach and brought Thomas Tuchel as a replacement. The German’s task was to pick up the team’s form and finish with the best possible outcome. Frankly speaking, the team had minimal chances of winning any of the major trophies when he took over. However, Tuchel exceeded all expectations after winning the UEFA Champions League title and finishing 4th in the Premier League standings.
Anticipation to how Chelsea will perform in the current season is rising. Tuchel has had more time in the summer to adapt more to the club and develop a deeper relationship with his players. In addition, the squad has been reinforced with more talented players such as Romelu Lukaku during the transfer window. Therefore, there are hopes that the team will be better than it was in the previous season. With that in mind, bookies have dedicated a special section for Chelsea Premier League predictions. Let us see what options are available for you to place your bets on.
Lukaku’s Presence is Already Noticeable
One of the main weaknesses in Chelsea’s squad in the previous season was the attacking lineup. The team did not have a goal-scoring machine to help them score more goals when needed. This is evident by Chelsea’s stats in the Premier League in the previous season. The team managed to score 58 goals in 38 matches, which averages to 1.5 goals per game. As a result, Tuchel opted to sign a super striker during the transfer window and succeeded at recruiting Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian striker scored 24 goals with Inter in Serie A, so he will be looking to produce similar numbers in the current season.
Early signs are encouraging as the team scored 23 goals in the first 9 matches. This averages to 2.5 goals per game. With that in mind, bookies and online sportsbooks in the United Kingdom now offer the option to bet on the number of goals in their Chelsea Premier League predictions. At 22BET Sportsbook , the betting odds for Chelsea to score over 83 goals are 1.85. Similarly, if you believe that the team will not exceed the 83-goal mark then your odds are also 1.85.
Chelsea Premier League Predictions for Conceded Goals
Although Chelsea has significantly improved their attacking lineup, their defense is just as important. As Sir Alex Ferguson once said, “Attack wins you games, defense wins you titles”. Therefore, Chelsea needs to keep a robust defensive lineup for any hopes of continuing their run from the last season. With the new additions of Trevoh Chalobah and Jake Clarke-Salter during the transfer window, the team is in no shortage of players at the back. In the previous season, the team conceded 36 goals in the league, which average to 0.94 goals per game.
However, it seems that they have significantly improved this season after conceding just 3 goals in the first 9 games. Therefore, keep those stats in mind when making your Chelsea Premier League predictions. At 22BET Sportsbook , the betting odds for the team to concede over or under 30.5 goals are 1.85.
Chelsea Premier League Predictions for the Number of Points
The last and final category bookies offer you to place your betting predictions on is the number of points Chelsea will register. In the previous season, the team allocated only 67 points with 19 wins, 10 draws, and 9 losses. However, those stats are not a good representation to help predict what will happen in the current season. Chelsea was performing poorly in the first half of the season with Lampard in 2020. In addition, the new arrivals during the transfer window will certainly improve those stats. Looking at the team’s start this season, Chelsea is already leading the standings with seven wins, one draw, and one loss. With that in mind, bookies have included options on the number of points in their Chelsea Premier League predictions. The betting odds at 22BET Sportsbook for Chelsea to register over or under 86 points are 1.85.
