Chelsea vs Crystal Palace Betting Tips 14/08/2021

Teams Status

Chelsea

Chelsea have somehow managed to sneak in that fourth position, but that doesnt matter as they went on to win the Champions League title and they will play in the Champions League this season as well. They had won 19 matches, drew ten and lost nine matches. They had scored the lowest number of goals by a top six team and also had conceded the second least number of goals. Most of their players had chipped in with goals as eight of their players had over four goals with Jorginho leading the pile with seven goals. The German speedster Timo Werner had eight assists to his name. They didn’t get in anyone other than Marcus Bettinelli. But they have let go of a few good players such as Fikayo Tomori, Victor Moses and Olivier Giroud. Apart from that, they do not have any player on the injury list for the season opener against Palace.

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace had a poor season as they finished in the 14th position after 38 matches. They had won just 12 matches, eight draws and 18 losses. They will be looking to do better than that and finish at least in the top ten. In the 38 matches, they had just scored 41 goals while conceding as many as 66 goals. The Belgium international Christian Benteke was the best performer for Palace, he had netted ten goals and also had a solitary assist to his name. The Ivory Coast forward Wilfried Zaha was the team’s leading goal scorer with 11 goals. They have had some decent signings in the form of Joachim Andersen, Michael Olise, Marc Guehi and Remi Matthews. While they have released Andros Townsend, Patrick van Anholt, Mamadou Sakho, Wayne Hennessey, Gary Cahill and James McCarthy. Going into the contest, they just have Eberechi Eze on that injury list.

Tipster’s Angle

This could be a one sided affair as Chelsea have destroyed Crystal Palace over the years and Crystal Palace’s last win against Chelsea came in 2017. Similar to the head to head matches, this could also see a lot of goals scored in them.

Tip: Total Goals Over 2.5 @ 1.75

In the last ten head to head matches have produced a lot of goals as over 2.5 goals were scored in as many as seven matches. Even four of the last five head to head matches hosted by Chelsea had over 2.5 goals scored in them. Chelsea started off the club friendly campaign in fine fashion as they have seen over 2.5 goals in all three matches. Crystal Palace on the other hand also have seen over 2.5 goals in all of their last three club friendly matches. The goal scoring threats like Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz and Wilfried Zaha, could spice up this encounter. So, it is likely that over 2.5 goals will be scored at 1.75 odds available at the Betway sportsbook.

Tip: Chelsea -1.5 @ 1.85

Chelsea has won eight of the last ten head to head matches while Palace has just won two. Also, four of those eight wins came with more than a two goal margin. Chelsea won both the matches that these two teams played against each other last season. They scored a total of eight goals and conceded just one goal. And both the matches had a winning margin of more than two goals. By considering these facts, we could say that this match could also see CHelsea winning by a two goal margin at 1.85 odds available at the Dafabet sportsbook.

Conclusion

With that being said, Chelsea are more likely to start the campaign with a win at home. But for Crystal Palace, they have to play out of their skins for them to make an impact and take something out of this clash.
