Chelsea Betting

Last season was supposed to be the beginning of a new era for Chelsea. After several managerial changes, the hope was that Maurizio Sarri would be able to build something special at Stamford Bridge.

Although the Italian guided Chelsea to third in the Premier League and won the Europa League with the Blues, the fans had already made their mind up that he was not the man for the long-term.

After Sarri’s inevitable sacking, the board turned to a bona fide Chelsea legend in Frank Lampard. Chelsea’s record goalscorer has just one season of managerial experience so there is a certain amount of trepidation about how things will pan out.

Lampard’s job has been made all the tougher by the FIFA imposed transfer ban that Chelsea have been saddled with. He does, however, have some excellent younger players ready to step up which makes this an exciting if unpredictable season ahead.

Chelsea Premier League Betting Odds

Challenging for the Premier League title is a very big ask for Lampard’s first season at 33/1 with 888Sport. The fans will be more patient with Lampard than they were with Sarri but they’ll expect the Blues to not be too far behind Manchester City and Liverpool.

Chelsea Champions League Betting Odds

Lampard had to deal with the hectic schedule of the Championship last season so he does know a thing or two about the sort of squad rotation that Chelsea will have to employ to juggle their Premier League and Champions League campaigns. This is a huge step up both for him and for many of his players though so Chelsea are unlikely to challenge for the Champions League at odds of 33/1.


Chelsea Outright Betting Odds

The domestic cup competitions have been kind to Chelsea over the years. Frank Lampard was taught the importance of winning a trophy early in the season by Jose Mourinho and he will be desperate to secure that first piece of silverware as a manager so expect Chelsea to take the League Cup seriously. Their price of 10/1 with 888Sport is certainly a tempting one.

Chelsea Tips and Predictions

If Frank Lampard thought that fighting for a place in the Championship playoffs was tough, wait till he tries to mastermind Chelsea’s assault on the top four. The Blues have obviously been hurt by the loss of their best player, Eden Hazard, and have a lot of football to play over the course of the season.

Those pessimistic about Chelsea’s chances can back them to finish outside of the top four at a general price of 4/5. That price reflects the fact that the bookies are far from convinced about the Blues this season and the stiff competition they’ll face from the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United.
