Chelsea is expected to have no problems against Brentford, a team from League One, but the Blues haven’t been convincing lately. Remember that the first match between Brentford and Chelsea ended 2-2, thus the replay on Stamford Bridge. Since then Chelsea recorded a draw, a loss and a victory in Premier League in that order. When Di Matteo was released and Benitez was appointed a lot of fans, and football enthusiast like me felt that the change was foolish and unnecessary. Few months later, seems like Benitez has done nothing different than any other previous manager of Chelsea and the team struggles with consistency. The odds for Chelsea to win this match are @ 1.14 so you will see no value in those at all. The odds for the Asian Handicap -1.5 are @ 1.43 which are also questionable considering that Chelsea struggled in the first match. We still believe Chelsea will advance ahead in regular time, but taking the handicap @ 1.43, backed with correct score Chelsea 1-0 @ 12.00 seems like the best combination, just in case the Blues fail to net more than one.

Brentford managed to surprise Chelsea on their own stadium, leading twice in the game, but failing to keep the lead. The late goal from Torres has set a replay on Stamford Bridge, where the League One team is expected to lose. The books give Brentford odds of 17.00 to win this match and draw @ 8.00. To us these odds hold a great value, though we do not believe Chelsea will let this one slip. Brentford did manage to eliminate Bradford in round 2 and Southend in round 3. In both games, the first match ended a draw just like the one with Chelsea.
Let’s face it, anything but a victory here for Chelsea will be an upset. However the odds for Chelsea have been dramatically reduced and they hold very little value, with the victory priced @ 1.14 and the handicap -1.5 @ 1.43.
We suggest you combine the Asian Handicap Chelsea -1.5 @ 1.43 with Correct Score Chelsea 1-0 @ 12.00 to secure your bet, just in case Chelsea manages to win, but with the minimal 1-0.
