Brentford vs Chelsea Over/Under Pick: Chelsea -1½ (-117)

Chelsea shouldn’t be suffering so much. I mean, the Blues spent a lot of money and have a very talented roster, especially when it comes to the attacking unit that includes Nicolas Jackson, Raheem Sterling, Cole Palmer, Christopher Nkunku, Noni Madueke and Mykhaylo Mudryk. Well, Nkunku won’t be available due to injury, but still.

There’s also the fact that the Blues recently lost the EFL Cup final against Liverpool. In other words, they’re thirsty for revenge. Plus, regardless of the result, they scored in nine of their last 10 EPL games on the road.

 

Brentford vs Chelsea Moneyline Pick: Chelsea (+117)

Yes, Chelsea is having a terrible season, but we’re still talking about the team in 11th place facing the one in 16th place. That’s basically why they come in as the soccer betting favorites. Plus, the Blues’ last EPL match was against Manchester City and they managed to win a point thanks to a 1-1 draw. The Citizens are way better than Brentford.

You should also keep in mind that several usual starters didn’t play in the EFL Cup Grand Finale, which means they’ll be at 100 percent for this crucial match. That’s right, from now on, every game is crucial for Chelsea if they want to finish in the top five and qualify for a UEFA competition.

 

Brentford vs Chelsea Player Props Pick: Cole Palmer Anytime Goalscorer (+175)

So … Cole Palmer isn’t a striker but the 21-year-old midfielder, who used to play for Manchester City, is Chelsea’s top scorer with 10 goals. The key for Palmer to be the Blues’ top scorer is that he’s in charge of taking penalties. Plus, he’s the only one that hasn’t suffered an injury, at least not one that kept him out of the field for two weeks or more. Finally, he’s +175 odds – that’s one of the best soccer player props you’ll find out there. Just take it.
