Chelsea will face off against last place Norwich City Tuesday in an English Premier League matchup. The Blues are looking to rebound from an embarrassing 3-0 loss to Sheffield but are third in the standings while Norwich City guaranteed its relegation with a loss to West Ham in its last match. We break down the DraftKings Sportsbook betting splits for the match here.
Chelsea (-770) is favored by a wide margin, and the betting public is backing them accordingly. It has 92 percent of the handle and 88 percent of the total bets. Below average performances from Willian and Christian Pulisic don’t often happen in one match, and the unusual two-goal performance from David McGoldrick was far from expected. Chelsea was 5-1 before the restart and beat Manchester City and Leicester during that stretch. It’s not likely that it will fall short against the worst team in the EPL.
Norwich City (+1900) is 0-7 since the restart with three goals but has still 6 percent of the handle and 11 percent of the total bets. No particular player has really gotten going for Norwich, and it’s averaging less than two shots on target per game. Chelsea hasn’t been the best defensively, but a stagnant offense like Norwich’s shouldn’t prevail.
Bets on a tie (+800) account for 2 percent of the handle and 2 percent of the total bets. The last time these two sides faced off, Chelsea claimed a 3-2 victory while bringing Willian off the bench. It should field a more competitive team this time around.
