Why bet on Liverpool?

The Reds have been the most outstanding team in the Premier League this season, with their sole loss coming in pretty controversial circumstances against Tottenham months ago. Since then, just a few draws have accompanied an otherwise flawless streak.

This remarkable pace derives from the return to form of Van Dijk. The defender has a 50% success rate in his tackles, 24 interceptions, 96 recoveries, and more than 100 duels won. In front, all the attackers have excelled, with Darwin Núñez being the first Premier League player to reach double digits in both goals and assists this season (11/10). However, he is still in debt regarding his effectiveness in front of goal.

Notwithstanding, the biggest problems for the Reds come off the pitch. Klopp announced that he won’t be leading the team after the end of the season anymore. That has generated a cyclone of rumors, and we are yet to see how the team will react.

Why bet on Chelsea?

The team from the mythic Stamford Bridge comes with a good streak for the first time in many months. They have won four of their last five Premier League games and also succeeded in the EFL Cup, so they will face Liverpool in the final.

The team has been unestable this season in all departments, but is undeniable that Cole Palmer has been the spark of their slow resurrection. He has already nine goals for the league, although five have been penalties. He complements with four assists, and his biggest asset is his versatility, acting as center-forward, attacking midfielder, and on the flanks, playing well everywhere. However, this signals another problem for the team: the lack of effectiveness from their center-forwards, with both Broja and Jackson having bad seasons till now.

The team has still plenty of time to recover, but the Champions League is too far away at the moment.

Final Betting Analysis: Liverpool vs. Chelsea

These teams have a whooping seven draws in a row, although some were in cup finals, where Liverpool emerged victorious on penalties. In Stamford Bridge this season, they tied 1-1. This streak must break sooner or later, but it’s tricky to predict when.

There seems to be a mental block for the two teams regarding each other, at least in open play. If you want to see a fest of wasted opportunities, just rewatch their draws, as countless one-on-ones have been dilapidated in the last few years.

With both in similar form as of late, it seems clear that another tie is coming our way. We’ll go for a 1-1.

Go for a draw at 4.69. If you bet $100 at such odds, you could get $369 for a total payout of $469.
