Tip: 2 AH +1.5
Units: 3/5

Chelsea might have splashed the cash to the tune of £200 million during the current transfer window although we’ve seen little evidence that the Blues should be trading as short as 1.36 to win this Premier League encounter at Stamford Bridge.

Frank Lampard’s side opened their account with an unconvincing win at Brighton before losing at home to Liverpool and offering little from an attacking perspective. Kai Havertz was once again anonymous and we’re not putting too much significance on an EFL Cup hat-trick against Barnsley.

Bet Against Chelsea After Some Poor Performances

While Timo Werner looks fast and lively, there still seems to be a disjointed feel about the Chelsea team and Lampard might take several more weeks to get the players into top gear, with the defence failing to keep a clean sheet in their opening two games and goalkeeper is clearly a problem position.

We’re not going to bet on Chelsea to lose this game considering they are still the most likely winners of this London derby, although we definitely have to take Crystal Palace’s excellent start into account and our prediction is that the Eagles will run their opponents close.

Roy Hodgson’s side claimed a 1-0 win against Southampton before improving their performance level to grab a 3-1 victory at Old Trafford and this was far from a smash and grab raid.

Why We’re Tipping Palace in the Betting Against Chelsea

Palace kept a solid shape against Manchester United and the form of Wilfried Zaha has been particularly eye-catching, with the best betting tip being the visitors on the Asian Handicap betting market considering we can win with this bet even if Chelsea win.

Backing the Eagles with a 1.5 goals start means that they can afford to lose by a single goal and we would still profit with this bet even if they lost by one, with Lampard likely to be happy with any kind of victory irrespective of the margin.

This could be a good time to be opposing Chelsea at this point of the season and there’s little reason to suggest that Palace are going to start conceding volumes of goals.
