Leeds United v Chelsea Betting Tips

Leeds United host Chelsea in the League Cup for Chelsea’s first game since they arrived back to England as runners up in the Club World Cup.

Leeds will fancy their chances of giving any side a run for their money at Elland Road with Bet365 and Sky Bet both offering 7/2 on a home win in this game. Leeds are mid-table in the Championship and they will see this match as a big chance to create some momentum and confidence ahead of the second half of the season.

Chelsea go into this game as the heavy favourites and effectively with all of the pressure. Chelsea are odds on at 4/5 with Boylesports which seems like a decent price considering they are likely to field a strong and experienced team for the match. This is one of their chances to secure some silverware this season.

The draw is possible because the feisty nature Leeds are likely to shown will be countered by the experience and discipline of the visitors. Sky Bet will give you 3/1 if you don’t think the teams will be separated after 90 minutes.



Betting on Leeds

If you’re looking to bet on Leeds then you can get a good bet on striker Luciano Becchio scoring the first goal of the game at 15/2 with Bet365. Becchio has been with the club for a high number of years and he is extremely experienced and effective when it comes to turning the ball in from half chances.

If you want to have a stab at getting the score right then 2-1 looks a decent option for a Leeds win at 14/1 with Bet365. Leeds should start quickly which increases their chances of grabbing the first goal but expect Chelsea to come back into the game as their fitness shows later in the match.


Betting on Chelsea

Daniel Sturridge to score at any time at 6/4 with Boylesports looks a very decent bet. Sturridge is likely to be given the nod in attack considering this is the sixth game Chelsea have played in December meaning certain attacking players may be rested for the match.

Chelsea are not likely to run away with this game because they cannot afford to play their best team. They know any sort of win will do and Chelsea to win by one goal is well priced at 11/4 with Sky Bet. Chelsea have more than enough quality to be able to defend a one goal lead throughout this match.

If you’re more confident over the way Chelsea will play in this match then get 8/5 from Bet365 on Chelsea winning with a handicap. They will start the match on minus one which means they will need to score two goals to effectively be 1-0 in front of Leeds.
