Antonio Conte’s adventure in the Premier League continues with an away game at Watford. After an interesting game against West Ham as his debut in England, the famous Italian coach will travel to play a team which has seen their share of Italians in its recent past. Watford seem comfortable playing big teams in recent times – but will Conte’s Chelsea prove to be a nut too hard to crack?
Premier League Betting Previews, Odds & Tips – Watford vs Chelsea
It does seem so. Conte is building a strong, determined and cynical team – just like he created at Juventus or in Italy’s national team. Chelsea are a team which can attack, defend extremely well and will use any trick in the book to get the three points.
They’ve won 2-1 against West Ham with a late Diego Costa goal on day 1, but other stats from that game caught our attention: 62% possession and 5 yellow cards for the home side. It is also worth mentioning that Watford hasn’t been able to beat Chelsea since ’99.
They don’t seem likely to be able to produce anything this time around. An early goal from Capoue saw them lead at Southampton, but they didn’t deserve to get anything out of the game.
The Saints where the better team even when Watford had 11 men on the field, not to mention after Watson’s red card. Against a team so professional and powerful as Chelsea, we don’t expect them to produce any fireworks.
We do have a lot of ideas how to much money out of this game, though. X or Chelsea is a low-odd, but very safe bet. Chelsea to win is another good idea, as well as betting on Chelsea to have higher possession, even though they play away from home. And if you’re feeling especially good about the Blues, go for a handicap victory. It might happen easier than you think.
Handicap – Chelsea (-1): 3.00 or 2/1
