Tottenham v Chelsea Odds: Compare the latest prices for Sunday's Premier League clash
Tottenham and Chelsea have both made solid starts to the season in the Premier League and Thomas Tuchel’s side are the current 5/2 second favourites behind Manchester City to lift this year’s trophy.
Here at BettingOdds.com we’ve taken a look ahead to the clash between Spurs and Chelsea on Sunday and have cast our eye through the main betting markets. We’ve also provided you with some key stats which will hopefully result in some profitable punting.
Chelsea have only faced Tottenham once under Thomas Tuchel which resulted in a 1-0 victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, thanks to a Jorginho penalty back in February 2021. Since then the Blues have gone on to win the Champions League and Super Cup and established themselves as one of the most formidable teams in world football.
The visitors are the favourites to take all three points on Sunday and can be backed at a current best price of 4/5 with Betfred, The draw is available at 11/4, while Spurs are are being offered at 4/1 with several firms such as bet365 and BetVictor.
Shots on Target
Moving onto the shots on target market Tottenham’s Harry Kane is priced at just 1/7 with William Hill to record 1+ on Sunday, the shortest of any player across both squads. Punters may want to tread carefully though when backing Kane, considering he failed to let off a shot or have a touch in the opposition penalty area last week against Crystal Palace.
Kane has only managed two shots on target in his three appearances so far this term whereas Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku has five, which includes three goals. Lukaku has also let off 12 attempts in total in comparison to just two from Kane, and with the Belgian registering 2+ on target against Aston Villa and Arsenal we’d be happy to include him in our Bet Builders at 23/20 with Hills.
Player to be Carded
Paul Tierney is the referee for the game on Sunday and this should be music to the ears of card-backers with the official ranking first last season when it came to yellow cards. Tierney brandished 3.90 per game on average which was higher than any of the other 18 referees to take charge of a Premier League game last season. This term Tierney has seemingly carried on where he left off with a healthy average of 3.75 yellows across his first four fixtures of the 21/22 campaign.
N’golo Kante picked up the most yellows in the league for Chelsea last term with seven but with him a doubt for this match through injury, Jorginho may be a more attractive prospect. The Italian was shown 10 yellows in 31 appearances in the 19/20 season and can be backed at 4/1 with bet365 to be shown a card on Sunday.
As mentioned earlier the return of Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea has started positively with three league goals for the Belgian in his first three matches. The former Manchester United forward looks a much more complete and focussed player than the man who left Old Trafford a few years back and is best-priced at 11/10 to find the net against Spurs with Unibet.
Here at BettingOdds.com we fancy Chelsea to get the win this weekend and the player we’d be advising in backing in the anytime assist market is Reece James. The right-back has only started two league games this term but has provided two assists and has accumulated 1.1xA (Expected Assists) in that time. 11/2 is on offer with Betfair for the 21-year-old to get his third assist of the season against Spurs.
Sunday’s game can be seen live on Sky Sports at 4:30pm and if you are having a bet on the game, please gamble responsibly.
