Chelsea Can Win Today’s London Derby
It’s rare that you get six 3 o’clock kick-offs and a mainly traditional Saturday football fixture list but that is the case today because there is only one live match. In the olden days every match began at the same time and all you got on television was the highlights of selected matches. Its now wall-to-wall live football but all there is today in the Premier League is Tottenham’s home match against Chelsea at Wembley which is hard to call but a London club could win or the match is a draw.
Chelsea have won seven of their last away matches and beat Tottenham at Wembley in the semi-finals of the 2016-17 FA Cup. They are one of three unbeaten teams in the Premier League after 12 matches which has never happened before in the top division of English football. However, Chelsea have not had an away game against one of the top six so this is a huge test. Tottenham are just one point behind Chelsea but have a poor record against the better opposition. CHELSEA are the bet at 13/8 with Betfair.
Any fixture between England and Australia in any sport is never a friendly and today they meet in a rugby union international at Twickenham. It’s the end of a grueling tour for the visitors who now don’t have the advantage of match fitness. In fact injuries have caught up with the camp while England have found able stand-ins when a key player is not fit to play. England have won their last five matches against Australia and the last two at Twichenham by 24 and 16 points so ENGLAND -8 on the handicap is the recommendation at Evens with bet365.
The Betfair Chase at Haydock has attracted a small but select field of just five runners. The horses that finished first and second in the Cheltenham Gold are in the race. Native River came out on top in that race but there could be a different outcome today. The ground and track will favour MIGHT BITE who is the banker of the day at Evens with Ladbrokes to win the race at 3pm when the football starts.
