Marquee match

Chelsea’s visit to Tottenham on Thursday must get that honour. Not only will the match witness the best defense of the league fighting against the best attack, but also the match will let you bet on the best odds available in online betting. All three results have attractive odds. All you need to do is to figure out the result accurately. Chelsea are on a 13-match unbeaten run. One more win, they will be level with Arsenal in the all time record. Chelsea also had an excellent H2H recent record against Tottenham. In the last 15 matches between these sides, Chelsea had lost only once. They have won six of these matches too. However, that does not mean that they are going to extend their winning run.

A closer look at the H2H stats reveals something else that will be useful for online betting. Chelsea’s record at White Hart Lane is not that great.  They have won only one premier league game here in the last 10 years.  Most of their matches here have been draws. If ever Chelsea’s winning run is going to halt, it is now. Moreover, Tottenham are playing really well. Since their loss to Manchester United, they have scored 13 goals in four matches. Chelsea will have a tough task maintaining their record. A draw has the most lucrative odds in online betting. A hard-fought draw is a realistic proposition too.

Other Interesting Fixtures

If you are looking for surprise results, check out the odds of Middlesbrough vs Leicester City in online betting. The current champions have been poor away from home right through the season. Middlesbrough looked organised and well-drilled in their match against Chelsea. It will not be a surprise if Leicester drop points.

Another interesting match will be Southampton’s visit to Everton. Everton will be the favourites. But do not rule out the other results. Everton, when they chose to attack, do leave their defences open and are vulnerable to counter attacks.
