Two of the clubs that escaped August with unbeaten Premier League records clash in west London. Chelsea are massive favourites against Bournemouth, but there are ways you can capitalise to get the best odds for Blues vs Cherries….
Chelsea vs Bournemouth odds
Neither side have suffered a Premier League defeat this season. Chelsea came out of clashes with Huddersfield, Arsenal and Newcastle with nine points. Bournemouth beat Cardiff and West Ham before recovering from 2-0 down to hold Everton.
Maurizio Sarri’s squad delivered their last two wins in the second half, having gone into the interval level. The Chelsea vs Bournemouth odds on a repeat are a very appealing 3/1.
There’s also plenty to admire in the 29/20 that Chelsea take the points but both teams get on the scoresheet. Bournemouth fired on three of their last four Stamford Bridge trips, and have gone seven games without being shut out, notching two or more in all four this term.
If Chelsea are able to extend their perfect start to four matches, the Premier League betting odds on them achieving a third title triumph in five years will surely shuffle closer to single digits. They’re currently available to back at a surprisingly chunky 12/1.
Score prediction: Chelsea 4 -1 Bournemouth @ 14-1
Best Bet: Eden Hazard to score and Chelsea to win 1-0, 2-1 or 3-1, with odds @ 13/2

The Cherries have prevailed at Stamford Bridge twice since their 2015 promotion, yet there’s a reason why the Chelsea vs Bournemouth odds price them as 15/2 outsiders.
In between those two upsets in December 2015 and January 2018, the Blues won all five meetings between the pair by a 13-3 aggregate scoreline.
