Everton got their ten-point deduction reduced to six points on appeal, which was not great news for Brentford and their supporters. This has sucked them closer to the Premier League's Relegation Zone as they are now just two places and five points above the drop. Chelsea, on the other hand, are looking at a comfortable mid-table finish, and they will still be smarting from their Carabao Cup defeat to Liverpool on Sunday. They had the chance to book themselves a Conference League spot but blew it. Will they be able to put this defeat behind them and get three points against Brentford? Let's find out!

🏆 Brentford vs Chelsea: Who Will Win?

Brentford have just three wins in their previous 18 matches, so it is not surprising that they are where they are in the table. Over the previous ten matches, they have picked up just the six points, which is a record that only Sheffield United and Burnley have done worse than. I do not think that they will end up being relegated, but it is definitely going to be a close call come May, especially if they do not manage to improve their very poor form.

Chelsea are currently sitting in 11th place in the table, which is pretty embarrassing considering the amount of money that they have spent in recent seasons. They had a chance to at least book themselves European football next season, but they blew it against a Liverpool team that was riddled with injuries. When it comes to form over the last ten rounds of matches, they are in 8th place, having picked up 16 points from the 30 on offer.

Brentford will fight for their lives against Chelsea, but I think the Blues will come out on top in this match due to their much superior squad depth. As for the scoreline, I think it will be a close one, so I am going to go for a 2-1 win for Chelsea.

My Prediction: 🏆 Brentford 1 Chelsea 2 ⚽

💯 Brentford vs Chelsea Match Odds

When these two teams met at Stamford Bridge back in October, the Bees won the match 2-0. In fact, Chelsea have not beaten Brentford in their previous four meetings - three losses and one draw. Chelsea dominated the last match, with 69% possession and 17 shots on goal, but they were profligate, while Brentford were clinical.

Established as well as new UK betting sites will take the result of this previous game and both teams' current form into consideration when they are forming their odds for this game, and below are the odds that five of my top bookies are offering for some popular markets.

Brentford vs Chelsea: Match Winner Odds

Chelsea are the bookmakers' favourites to win this game, but the fact that their odds are above 2.00 tells us that the bookies are not entirely sure as to which way this match will go. This is because you never really know which Chelsea team is going to show up. They have plenty of talent, as they showed in their recent FA Cup win over Aston Villa, but they are very inconsistent. Below you can find the match winner odds for this Brentford vs Chelsea game.

Brentford vs Chelsea: Both Teams To Score Odds

When it comes to EPL matches, the bookies usually back both teams to find the back of the net, and they have not made an exception for this Brentford vs Chelsea game. With the way that they have both been playing defensively, it is easy to see why they are backing BTTS. If you want to make use of both teams to score odds, then the latest and best offerings can be seen in the table below:

Team
Yes1.441.441.501.491.55
No2.532.532.382.322.38

Brentford vs Chelsea: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

The bookies are pretty sure that there will be three goals scored in this match, but they are also pretty sure that there will be no more than three. So, these odds, along with the match winner odds and the BTTS odds that are on offer, tell us that the bookies believe that Chelsea will go on and win this match 2-1. If you cast your mind back to the start of this prediction, you will remember that this is exactly the scoreline that I predicted as well. Below are the over/under 2.5 goals odds:

Over 2.51.521.521.601.551.60
Under 2.52.322.322.352.282.35

✔️ Brentford vs Chelsea - Betting Tips

No matter whether you are using your own hard-earned money or some free bets that you have been fortunate enough to land, it is always important to look for the value bets as this is how to get the best from your sports betting experience. The following football betting tips will give you plenty to think about ahead of this Brentford vs Chelsea clash.

  • Tip 1: Bet on Chelsea to win: The Blues have a pretty poor recent head-to-head record against Brentford, so I can see why you might want to go for a home win. However, I cannot look past the Bees' poor form at the moment. A total of 3 wins from their last 18 matches is really poor going, and Chelsea have the better squad to boot. If Chelsea turn up, then I can see nothing but the three points leaving with the visitors. If you want to back Chelsea to win, then Mr. Mega Sports are currently offering odds of 2.10 for this outcome.
  • Tip 2: Bet on BTTS: The bookies are certain that both teams will find the back of the net in this match, and I agree. Some stats that back up that this is likely to happen include the fact that 85% of Brentford's home matches have seen both teams score. Furthermore, Chelsea have scored in 77% of their away matches this season. It would be really surprising if both teams did not score in this game, and BetUK Sports are offering odds of 1.55.
  • Tip 3: Bet on Cole Palmer to score: There is often plenty of value on offer for the goal scorer market since it is obviously not an easy market to get correct. When it comes to a scorer in this match, I can see Palmer getting his name on the scoresheet as he has been Chelsea's best player this season since his move from Manchester City. He has 10 goals in 22 appearances for Chelsea, and Betiton Sport are offering odds of 2.97 for him to score.
  • Tip 4: Bet on Chelsea to win 2-1: If you want to bet on the correct scoreline because of the enticing odds that are available, then I recommend that you go for a 2-1 win for Chelsea. I can see Brentford scoring because Chelsea's defence is not all that, but I think their attack will be too much for the Bees and they will concede twice. You can find odds of 9.00 for this scoreline.

N.B. One final, but very important, bit of advice that I am going to give you is to set up a budget and stick to it. You need to always remember to gamble responsibly, no matter what it is that you are betting on.

Brentford Update

Thomas Frank has done a wonderful job with Brentford since they arrived on the Premier League scene, but they are now running the risk of playing Championship football next season. For what it is worth, I do not actually think that they will go down, but it is definitely squeaky bum time for the team that their manager once described as "just a bus stop in Hounslow". They will be battling it out with the likes of Everton, Luton, and Nottingham Forest to avoid being the third team to go down - for me, Sheffield United and Burnley are as good as relegated.

Brentford have picked up four of their seven wins at home, but they have just one home win from their previous five home matches. You can see their previous five league results below:

Brentford lost 4-2 to West Ham on Monday evening, and the night was made even worse as their most important defender, Ben Mee picked up an injury. He is unlikely to be available at the weekend. Below you can find a full list of Brentford's absentees:

2️⃣Chelsea Update

If Chelsea won the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, then their fans probably would have been able to look past their poor league position as they would have bagged themselves some European football next season. As things stand, they are probably going to finish the season in 9th or 10th, which is not good enough for a team that has spent the type of money that they have. I do think they will do much better next season but, then again, they could not possibly do much worse. At least they have improved on last season, where they finished 12th.

From their last ten matches, they have five wins, one draw, and four losses, which puts them 8th in the form table. This should be enough to get them the win at the Gtech Community Stadium. Below are their previous five league results:
