It’s been an interesting summer for Chelsea, and one that they might not be too happy with. They’ve failed to land a number of key signings and couldn’t land Romelu Lukaku who opted to join Jose Mourinho over a move back to Stamford Bridge.
Having said that, they are the Champions and one of the firm favourites to win the Premier League with many of the UK’s best bookmakers.
Chelsea predictions were largely taking into account the uncertainty of Diego Costa over the summer and their preparations were hardly ideal, particularly with the loss of Nemanja Matic to Mourinho too.
The Blues have been busy strengthening their squad in order to defend their title however. Big names arriving include Alvaro Morata who looked destined for a move to Manchester United before making the move to Stamford Bridge, while Matic has been replaced by Tiemoue Bakayoko and former Leicester man Danny Drinkwater.
A number of other men have added depth to Antonio Conte’s side, which is needed with the club returning to Champions League action. Those offering Chelsea betting tips believe the extra mid-week games could cause problems in defending their title, but as you’d expect they’re still one of the teams to beat for the title along with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
The club haven’t won back-to-back titles in over a decade, so the Chelsea betting odds do look quite short for such a tough task. Morata and co. will be up for the challenge though, and Conte more than proved last year he’s a winner. Can he bring the title to Stamford Bridge once again?
Chelsea Premier League Betting Odds
The Blues’ return to the top last season has made Chelsea betting odds a popular one among punters this season, and you’ll find some of the best odds with the likes of Betfred and Ladbrokes. To find the best odds, visit our bookmakers page where you can find all the best offers to have a Chelsea free bet or enhanced odds bet.
Conte did well to get Morata in and he’s a good Chelsea tip for top scorer in the Premier League in 2017/18. The Spaniard has always hit plenty of goals, despite coming on from the bench during the majority of last season for Real Madrid and will no doubt hit the ground running in the English top flight.
The club also return to the Champions League after missing out during Jose Mourinho’s last season at the club. It’ll be a big task for Conte’s men to win the competition, but if you fancy a punt on Chelsea’s Champions League odds, visit our free bets page and pick up an offer beforehand.
Throughout the season we’ll also bring you the best Chelsea odds in the FA Cup, League Cup and the Premier League every week so you don’t miss out on the chance to make the most of betting on the Premier League Champions.
