Leeds vs Chelsea Betting Tips
- Our Tip – Chelsea and BTTS @ 209/100 on BetStorm
Both of these sides will be desperate to return to winning ways on Wednesday night. Leeds now find themselves in the relegation zone after Everton’s late season push for survival. They sit level on points with Burnley who are in 17th, but anything other than a victory here could spell real danger for Jesse Marsch’s side.
Meanwhile, Chelsea’s seemingly comfortable position in third has suddenly become very narrow, with Arsenal closing the gap to just a point. They too can not afford to slip up any more between now and the end of the season.
We do however think Chelsea should have enough quality to walk away with three points, but given their defensive woes of late it could be another game without a clean sheet.
Arsenal vs Leeds Predictions
- Our Prediction – 2-1 Chelsea @ 67/10 on BetStorm
Our prediction for this one is a 2-1 win for Chelsea.
Just when it looked as if Leeds had found the formula for survival, the manner in which they have lost their previous two fixtures resembles like the lacklustre side we saw earlier in the season under Marcelo Bielsa.
Despite Chelsea’s own less than favourable predicament, we can not see Leeds prevailing with the all-important three points here. Thomas Tuchel will know that anymore points dropped could put their Champions League qualification in serious doubt, so we expect Chelsea to get the win here.
