Bournemouth +1.75 (-103)
Chelsea will be looking to find some stability when they will host Bournemouth on Saturday. They did record a nice win in the Champions League mid-week and will now look for back to back victories. Bournemouth have been struggling a lot in the past few months but they have been decimated by injuries.
Bournemouth (4-8-4) were not very good in their home match against Liverpool last week, where they lost hands-down by 3-0. That was their fifth loss in a row, as they have won just one of their last 10 league matches (1-6-3). As a result, they have slid to the 15th spot of the league table with 16 points and are now just one ahead of the relegation zone. They have not been very strong on the road so far (2-5-1), scoring in just two of their last six.
Chelsea (9-5-2) did a great job in the Champions League mid-week when they beat Lille by 1-2 at home and moved on to the next round. They bounced back from a tough loss against Everton last week, where they fell by 1-3 on the road. Even so, they have won just two of their last six matches in all competitions (2-3-1). Chelsea are still 4th in the Premier League with 29 points, three behind Manchester City. They have been solid at home so far (4-2-2), with just three of those matches featuring Over 2.5 Goals.
Chelsea have the upper hand as hosts (4-2-0), with just one of those matches seeing both teams score. Bournemouth have been plagued by injuries this season and they still have a lot of players who are unavailable. However, I am tempted to back them up to cover the spread here, as Chelsea have not been very stable lately.
