West Bromwich – Chelsea Prediction 12 May 2017


The second match of the 37th round of the EPL will be an encounter between WBA and Chelsea, in which bookmakers have set the Blues as the obvious favorites of the upcoming game. This game is the last official domestic match for the Throstles this season, therefore one can expect activity from the WBA, but one shouldn’t forget, that the victory will bring the championship title for Conte’s team, in its turn.

The Throstles are having a great season. The team doesn’t have the biggest resources in the elite, but still manages to remain the first ten and has chances on keeping the eighth position in the peloton. WBA have had 18 domestic matches, in which they got nine victories with two draws and seven defeats. 27 goals were scored and 21 conceded.

The odds on Chelsea victory in the forthcoming game aren’t high. Less, than 1.4, which is quite natural, considering the tournament situation. Chelsea are currently ahead of Tottenham by seven points in the EPL’s tournament table and only three rounds are left until the end of the championship, i.e. the victory against WBA will definitely make the Blues the winners of the tournament. Chelsea have had 18 away games within the EPL this season, in which they got 12 victories with three draws and three defeats.

Chelsea are coming to West Bromwich to get three points, but considering The Throstles’ domestic activity, one scored goal may not be enough to defeat the contenders. Chelsea’s attack is in a good shape, which is seen by the last statistics: they’ve scored against Tottenham and Southampton four goals each, Everton and Middlesbrough  – three goals each. In this situation a bet on an individual total for the Blues looks logical.

Prediction for the match: Chelsea to score over 1.5 goals.
