Odds: -100

Call us crazy, but we think that Burnley could be a good bet on the Asian Handicap for this match at Stamford Bridge. The Clarets looked like relegation fodder at the beginning of the season, although they’ve actually avoided defeat in nearly 50% of their away games in the Premier League this campaign.

Since losing at home to Everton on Boxing Day, results have improved on the pitch to the extent where eight wins have occurred in sixteen matches. Most recently, Sean Dyche’s side have beaten Wolves and won away to Bournemouth.

They’re likely to have made it three on the bounce against Cardiff and, should they have sealed the deal against the Bluebirds, then Burnley can head to Stamford Bridge with no pressure when it comes to landing a result.

This might be to their advantage against a Chelsea side who are still scrapping away trying to land enough points to qualify for next season’s Champions League, although they do have a reliance on Eden Hazard.

There might also be rotation for this clash on the basis that Maurizio Sarri’s side will have played against Slavia Prague in the Europa League just a few days before this clash, with Sarri potentially playing some of his reserve players.

You can get with Burnley at evens with a 1.5 goal start knowing that a slender defeat by one goal will ensure a profit with this bet, while a draw or away win will obviously land a return.

It might be worth checking out the team news before going ahead with this bet and perhaps the strongest possible Chelsea line-up could mean that we refrain from pressing ahead, although the absence of Eden Hazard could mean it’s worth pressing ahead.
