Chelsea vs. Manchester City: Betting odds preview

Alex Livesey

Chelsea favored over Manchester City in key EPL odds battle Saturday.

Chelsea hosts Manchester City this weekend and the Blues may not have fond memories of last season facing City.

However, the Blues are in second place in the league table this season trailing only Arsenal, and their attack is in top form, having scored 11 goals in the last three matches.

Man City had three wins and one draw last season against Chelsea including knocking them out of the FA Cup in the semifinals. They are in fourth place in the league table and have won three straight matches, but are underdogs on the road in this big EPL odds encounter.

Sportsbooks such as Bovada had Chelsea as midweek favorites on soccer betting odds menus at +138 with Man City at +200 and a draw line at +240

Chelsea's attack had been a little slugging in their start to the EPL season, but their defense has played well all season allowing the second fewest goals. Man City, who has nine goals in their last three matches, will test them and they have scored the most goals in the EPL this season.

Chelsea's defense will have to keep tabs on the Man City duo of Yaya Touré and Sergio Agüero, who have combined for 10 goals this season. Agüero scored two goals in City's last match, which was a 3-1 win over West Ham.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has never lost at Stamford Bridge in the EPL and it looks as if will not get a touchline ban after being sent off in the Blues' last match.
