Football Betting Tips: Fulham vs. Chelsea


Football Betting Tips: Home side Fulham is right in the middle of the table at 10th place. In their last six meetings, they won three, lost two, and drew one. They’re quite safe from relegation now but are still far from challenging the top brass of this League.

Chelsea is now at third place in the League and is poised to have another Champions League run next season. They’ve won four and lost two of their last Premier League matches and still have an FA Cup semifinal match with Manchester City and a Europa Cup semifinal coming.

Venue: Craven Cottge

Asian Bookie Handicap Odds: Chelsea as favorites, 0.5 goal handicap for Fulham


Home side Fulham is still reeling after injuries to two important players. Midfielder Ashkan Dejagah suffered from an ankle injury during their match against Queens Park Rangers and is out for the rest of the season.

Another player, Eyong Enoh, is potentially out for some matches due to another ankle injury.  Fulham is virtually safe from relegation but manager Martin Jol said that his club needs at least one more win for good measure.

Third-place Chelsea is tied on points and only ahead on goal difference with Tottenham Hotspur. If they wish to automatically qualify for a champions league spot next season, they must make sure that Tottenham must not gain an advantage over them.

Chelsea’s quest for a trophy this season probably won’t come into fruition at the Premier League. However, don’t expect the side to let up on the effort in this match, as they still need the points to ensure a good ranking entering into the next season.

Asian sports betting site places Chelsea as the favored side at 1.870. Wigan has an advantage of 0.5, so the Blues must win by 1 goal or more for their punters to win the bet.
