Bookies backing easy win for Blues

Chelsea are a top priced 1.4 to beat Wigan at the DW Stadium this weekend, and given their current form another three points look theirs for the taking.
AVB has turned things round in recent weeks and the Blues come into this in red-hot form having come from 1-0 down and put in a superb performance to to beat table toppers Man City 2-1 earlier in the week.
They have scored 15 goals without reply in the last three matches against the Latics, who have won just one and lost 10 of the 12 Premier League meetings between the two sides.
The home side are really struggling and have taken just one point from the last 15 on their own patch. OK they have managed to win two out of their last three games, but those wins came against Sunderland and West Brom and sandwiched in between was a 4-0 tonking at the hands of Arsenal.
It really does look a case of how many Chelsea will put past them as they have also failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 12 PL games.
The Blues also have no new injury worries, and defender David Luiz returns after being banned for Monday night’s victory over city.
I think Chelsea will run riot, and fancy them to win 4-0 or 5-0 and you can get some really tasty odds about those scorelines.
The former is a standout 21 with Betfred, while the latter if a 41 shot with the same firm and Boylesports.
In the first goal scorer market it’s the usual suspects who head the betting with Drogba edging favouritism at 5 with bet365 over Sturridge who is a 5.5 chance with Betfred.
Of the pair it’s Drogba that appeals most, but the standout 8.5 on offer with bet365 about Kalou also catches the eye and is worthy of a saver given that most firms go just 7.
