Chelsea – West Bromwich [Prediction]

The English teams Chelsea London FC and West Bromwich Albion will meet this weekend on Saturday, March 2nd.
The last five direct confrontations saw Chelsea win three (6-0 in 2010, 3-1 and 2-1 in 2011) and West Bromwich have the upper edge in the two most recent ones (1-0 and 2-1 in 2012).

As far as the Premier League is concerned, the last 5 encounters look statistically the same for both teams, showing Chelsea with 2 games won (4-1 against Wigan Athletic and 2-1 against Arsenal), one tied (2-2 with Reading), and two lost (0-2 with Manchester City and 2-3 with Newcastle United). West Bromwich also won two (2-1 against Sunderland and 2-0 against Liverpool), tied one (2-2 with Aston Villa), and lost two (0-1 with Tottenham Hotspur and 1-2 with Everton). Momentum-wise, though, the Bromwich team looks like the favourite, having won its last two games and climbed to the 7th position in the championship standings.

But then, Chelsea has its morale rather high after managing to eliminate Sparta Prague and gaining access to the Round of 16 in the Europa League. And it will need a good result against West Bromwich in order to look optimistic for the game against Steaua Bucharest on March 7th. That, coupled with the fact that fourth-place Tottenham is trailing by only one point, thereby jeopardizing their sure-thing Champions’ League appearance next fall, will give Chelsea the necessary impetus to produce a good result.

Overall, judging by ratings and results, Chelsea has an advantage over West Bromwich. I place my bet on a Chelsea win, with the odds set at 1.40 at Bet365.

I got into the exciting world of sports betting years ago when information on the subject was much more difficult to find. Of course I made a lot of rookie mistakes and bad bets but over time I learned from those experiences. Nowadays, those who want to start out placing sports bets have the opposite problem. There’s so much information available that it’s so hard to sort through it all and to know who to listen to. With this blog I’ll be doing that work for you and I’ll strive to bring you nothing but the best betting tips and information the internet has to offer.

    Check here a West Bromwich-Chelsea recap from the 17th of November 2012: …so I think we shouldn’t neglect Bromwich’s latest performances either

    This guy Alan Shearer is a bit too arogant to my taste: …moreover, sometimes I feel that he doesn’t really know what he is talking about 😐
