There is one English Premier League match taking place on Friday and we take a look at the game from a betting angle.
Let’s start with the latest English Premier League Outright Betting where Arsenal are currently trading as favourites at 8/11 ahead of Manchester City at 13/10. You can get 50/1 and better the balance, but there are plenty of other long-term markets to get involved in such as, team to finish bottom half of the table where Brentford for example are trading at 12/10.
Chelsea are currently 10th on the log and have had just two victories in their last 10 matches. Last time out they played out a goalless draw away at Liverpool and their last home game was a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace. Their home form has been a bit hit and miss of late with 2 wins, 2 losses and a draw in their last 5.
Digging deeper into Chelsea’s goal stats at Stamford Bridge they played 9 matches and 4 of those 9 games have delivered profits for over 2.5 goal backers. Beware though the last 5 matches played at Stamford Bridge have had 2 goals or less in them.
Fulham are having a good season and are currently 7th on the log, but they saw a 4 match winning streak ended when they lost to Newcastle 1-0 on the road and that was followed up by a 1-0 home defeat to Tottenham.
Fulham have won 4 and drawn 1 of 10 away matches this season, winning 3 of their last 5 on the road and 70% of Fulham away matches would have delivered you profits had you backed over 2.5 goals. Their last two away games though have also been good for unders backers.
These sides met earlier in the season with Fulham winning 2-1 at home. Last season Chelsea did the double over Fulham and won this fixture 2-0. That was the third successive time Chelsea have beaten Fulham 2-0 at home.

With both of these sides struggling for form and goals, I think we could get a low scoring encounter here.
Suggested Bet: Under 2.5 goals at 9/10
I think Fulham are quite capable of getting something out of this game and perhaps even 3 points, but for those who believe in backing trends the 2-0 Chelsea score line is 6/1 to arrive for the 4th successive home meeting against Fulham.
