Premier League Predictions: Chelsea vs. Norwich Odds, Picks and Prediction
Chelsea welcomes already-relegated Norwich to an empty Stamford Bridge
Chelsea vs. Norwich Prediction
Best Bet: (1u) Marco Stiepermann to be shown a card @ +310
- The German has 6 yellow cards in just 22 games
There’s very little value on this game at all. Chelsea are -800 favorites with good reason. Norwich have officially been dumped from the Premier League and now they face a Chelsea team who need to win in order to maintain their push to finish in the top 4 and cement a Champions League spot next year.
Marco Stiepermann looks set to start in an attacking midfield role. The German has had 6 yellows in 22 games this season, although crucially only 13 of those were starts, and having played only 1101 total minutes, that means he averages a booking just over every 2 games, at 1 in every 189.5 minutes. At a price of +310, and against a far superior team, I can see that offering great value.
(0.5u) Chelsea 2-1 Norwich (correct score) @ +1000
I actually have a hunch that Norwich could score today, despite only scoring once in their past 4 games. Teams who have relegation confirmed often perform better when they’re free from pressure and that could be the case today, although I’d still expect Chelsea to win. Chelsea win and both teams to score is +165 which still feels a little too skinny to lump on. +1000 for Chelsea to win 2-1, their most common scoreline this season, could be worth a little look.
