Chelsea vs Spurs: Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
Tottenham have been dealt the blow of losing star striker Harry Kane until March. Kane’s penalty settled the first leg in Tottenham’s favour but now they must make the trip to Stanford Bridge without their talisman.
That will only go on to spur a Chelsea side who are looking for their first EFL Cup title since 2015 and may feel the Lilywhites are there for the taking with top betting sites making the Blues favourites to win the match on home soil.
Despite this, Tottenham come into the game on a run of three straight victories over Chelsea including that 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge in April 2018.
One thing Chelsea have struggled with lately is goals, five strikes in their last five games is hardly prolific and for a side that needs to score at least two on the night in order to progress in normal time is slightly worrying.
However, Chelsea has only lost once at home all season in all competitions so expect them to win 1-0 in 90 minutes and sneak through on penalties.
Chelsea to win and keep a clean sheet is 2/1 with 10bet
No Kane is a major issue for Spurs especially when you consider Chelsea has only conceded twice in their last nine outings in all competitions at the Bridge making this one of the best bets with sportsbooks for a Spurs no score. 10bet make it 2/1.
0-0 scoreline at the break is 19/10 with 10bet
Chelsea has only managed two first half goals in their last eight outings in all competitions and coupled with the above bet, makes for a solid return at 19/10 with 10bet.
