Benitez looking for first league win against Black Cats- The Odds

Chelsea take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light and are 1.8 Betfred and Paddy Power with to secure a much needed three points.
The Blues have won only five of their last 19 Premier League away games and haven’t won in their in the last seven games in the top flight.
However the stats are good as far as this game is concerned as they have won won 14 and lost one of the last 15 league games against the Black Cats.
The home side have also won just two of their last 22 PL matches (W2 D12 L8) and have failed to score in two of their last three home games.
That suggest that Chelsea are worthy odds-on shots, and they come into the game on the back of a 6-1 win in the Champions League in midweek.
Although that win ultimately failed to save them exiting the competition, it did provide them with their first win under Rafa Benitez and saw Fernando Torres finally get back among the goals.
The Spaniard scored two against FC Nordsjaelland, and will hopefully of gained much needed confidence from doing so.
If that’s the case then he could be a bit of value in the first goalscorer market at 6.5 with Paddy Power, who also go a tasty looking 2.7 about him netting anytime.
I fancy Chelsea to win this without reply, and they are a top priced 3 with Paddy Power to win to nil.
In the correct score market 2-0 and 3-0 appeal at odds of 8 and 14 with Betfred and Paddy Power respectively.
Split stakes on both should hopefully return some handsome profit.
