What Trueform says for Chelsea vs Bournemouth
Chelsea look rejuvenated under Maurizio Sarri, but Bournemouth have also started the new Premier League season well and should go to Stamford Bridge full of confidence.
The Cherries pulled off an incredible 3-0 victory when last visiting this venue at the end of January and return in good spirits.
Punters can get Evens for Eddie Howe’s side with two goals start on the handicap list and that is tempting enough to be our opening Chelsea vs Bournemouth prediction.
A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds
Chelsea enjoyed a bit of good fortune when winning 2-1 at Newcastle, with Eden Hazard capitalising on a contentious penalty decision and then Marcos Alonso’s shot being deflected in.
There was a similar feel to their previous 3-2 triumph over Arsenal, when some superb football was mixed in with often mediocre defending.
Hazard was still buzzing after the St James’ Park success, though, telling Chelsea TV: “It’s a big win, a massive win.
“We know that we don’t have a good record here – I think it’s the first time I’ve won since I came here, so it’s a massive game, a massive win.
“The boys deserve everything. We need to keep this momentum. We want to be at the top at the end of the season.
“We know the league is not finished, it’s just the beginning, but confidence is coming, goals are coming, so we just look forward to the next game.”
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth followed up solid wins over Cardiff and West Ham by coming from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Everton at Vitality Stadium.
In an action-packed game which saw both teams reduced to 10 men, Joshua King’s penalty and a close-range finish from Nathan Ake salvaged a point for the Cherries.
“I think we have shown a lot of steel, a lot of determination, and that’s really good from the mental perspective,” declared Howe.
“It shows we are never out of a game and that’s a great quality to have.”
King and strike partner Callum Wilson have started the new campaign well and have the pace to trouble any defence.
Let’s add 31/20 for a home win and both teams to score to our Chelsea vs Bournemouth betting tips.
