12BET Football Tips: Chelsea vs Swansea City

Venue: Stamford Bridge (Chelsea)

Date: April 27, 2013

Time: 10:00 PM (+8 GMT)

Football Betting Tips: Fourth-place Chelsea are effectively out of the running for the Premier League trophy, but they still need points to maintain or improve on their League standing and ensure Champions League qualification next season. They won four out of their last 6 matches.

Swansea City are now at the middle of the road in ninth place. They’re quite safe from relegation but have seen a drop in form in their last matches. They lost four of six, with only one win and one draw. They could really use some points to keep a morale-dampening slide from happening.

Asian Bookie Handicap Odds: Chelsea is favored, 1.5 goal handicap given to Swansea.

Despite a loss against Rubin Kazan in the away leg in Russia, Chelsea are on to the Europa League semifinals. It’s a noteworthy achievement, but given the accomplishments the Blues are known for, it’s obvious they’d want another Champions League run next season.

Swansea City, on the other hand, are more concerned with getting enough points to stay in the middle of the standings. It’s said that here are plans to acquire key pieces in the offseason, but Swans boss Michael Laudrup hasn’t floated any names yet.

Despite being several places apart on the League Table, it’s worthwhile to note that in the last five times Chelsea and Swansea played each other, each side has won only one game apiece.

12BET.com, a top Asian sports betting site, places Chelsea as the favored team in this match at 2.050. Swansea City has a 1.5 goal handicap, so the Blues must win by at least two goals for Chelsea punters to win.
