What Trueform says for Chelsea vs West Brom

Chelsea have almost fallen off our Trueform chart with two straight disappointing defeats and are again hard to trust at short odds when entertaining West Brom.

The Baggies are bottom of the table and also seeking to avoid a third straight loss, but Alan Pardew’s side haven’t been playing that badly of late.

Albion only went down 1-0 here last term and drew 2-2 at Stamford Bridge two seasons ago, so 83/100 for the visitors with two goals start is worth including in our Chelsea vs West Brom betting predictions.

A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds

Chelsea were left stunned by a 3-0 home loss to Bournemouth and any hopes of that being just a one-off blip quickly faded when they then went down 4-1 at Watford.

To be fair, the Blues did battle back from having Tiemoue Bakayoko sent off and going behind to a penalty when Eden Hazard produced a superb 82nd-minute equaliser at Vicarage Road.

However, Antonio Conte’s side then collapsed in the closing stages and were actually fortunate to only concede three more times before the final whistle.

“This is the worst I’ve felt for quite a while,” said defender Gary Cahill. “Performance-wise, I didn’t recognise us or myself.

“It was abysmal. It hurts a lot when you come off after a performance like that. We just need to keep strong. I’ve been here before at this club – it’s about staying calm.”

A few days off could help the hosts to regroup, but we need to see some positive signs before getting back on side.

Looking at the Chelsea vs West Brom odds, preference here is to take 12/5 for Albion to avoid defeat.

A Look At West Bromwich Albion’s Betting Odds

West Brom were left four points adrift at the foot of the table following a 3-2 home loss to Southampton, despite having gone ahead early on through Ahmed Hegazi.

“The squad was a little bit light in terms of freshening things up and I think that showed,” commented Pardew, who will also relish an extended break before this next game.

The Baggies have won just one of their last 24 top-flight fixtures, but they did recently beat Liverpool 3-2 at Anfield in the FA Cup.

Pardew’s side also drew there in the league in December and picked up a point at Everton last month, whilst they have shared the spoils with Arsenal and Tottenham this term, too.

The last three stalemates mentioned all finished 1-1, so we’re adding 35/4 for that correct score to our Chelsea vs West Brom betting tips.
