Chelsea, and Eden Hazard in particular, eased the pressure on manager Antonio Conte as they returned to winning ways in the Premier League by beating bottom-0f-the-table West Brom 3-0 at Stamford Bridge on Monday.
Following defeats to Bournemouth and Watford, the Blues responded after taking advantage of some poor West Brom finishing, with deadline-day signing Olivier Giroud impressing on his first start for the club.
With their opponents struggling in the Championship, and having won just four of their 46 meetings with the Blues, we’re kicking off our Chelsea vs Hull betting predictions by taking 35/4 for the Premier League side to ease to a 4-0 win.
A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds
With a Champions League round of 16 first-leg encounter at home to Barcelona next Tuesday, expect Conte to rest his key players against a Hull side who last tasted success against Chelsea in 1988, in the old Second Division.
Indeed, Chelsea have won their last six meetings with the Tigers, five of them by a 2-0 scoreline, and have never lost a home clash with the club from East Yorkshire.
Hazard stole the show against the Baggies but is likely to be on the bench at most, although Giroud could be given another start should he shake off the effects of a head injury sustained on his full debut.
Despite a much-changed line-up anticipated, we don’t envisage any problems for Chelsea with 83/100 for them to win to nil the second of our Chelsea vs Hull betting tips.
A Look At Hull City’s Betting Odds
Hull climbed out of the relegation zone in the Championship courtesy of Saturday’s 2-0 win at Nottingham Forest, only their second league success on the road this season.
It was only their third win in 12 games, with the other two – against Blackburn and Forest – coming in this competition, in which the Tigers lost to Arsenal after extra-time in the 2014 final.
One of the reasons for Hull’s worrying position in the table is their lack of goals with just three scored in six league games, something Nigel Adkins’ side must address if they are to avoid successive relegations.
With more pressing issues on the domestic front, Hull will hope to leave Stamford Bridge without too much damage being done but 23/20 for there to be over 3.5 goals completes our Chelsea vs Hull predictions.
CHELSEA 3-0 West Brom – Eden Hazard (2), Victor Moses
Forest 0-2 HULL – Jon-Miquel Toral, Harry Wilson
Head-to-head: Chelsea 2-0 Hull, Hull 0-2 Chelsea, Hull 2-3 Chelsea, Chelsea 2-0 Hull, Hull 0-2 Chelsea
