Blues favourites in New Year derby: The Odds

Chelsea are long odds-on at 1.22 with Betfred and Paddy Power to beat QPR at Stamford Bridge and it should be a matter of how many they win by.
The Blues showed a great attitude to come from behind and beat Everton 2-1 at Goodison on Sunday, a result which means they are now just four points adrift of Man City in third position with a game in hand.
It also means that they have now lost just twice in their last 11 league and cup fixtures since Rafa Benitez’s arrival, and they face a side here who are in woeful form.
Harry Redknapp’s side were readily brushed aside 3-0 by Liverpool at Loftus Road at the weekend and have won just one game all season.
They have also never beaten their London rivals in a league fixture at Stamford Bridge, and were thrashed 6-1 in this fixture last season.
That makes Chelsea look bankers to win this, and I fancy them to win 4-0 which is priced up at 11 with bet365 and Betfred.
Frank Lampard was reportedly told to look for a new club in January but his brace against Everton could help win a contract extension after 11 years at the Bridge.
He has now scored 3 in his last 3 matches and makes plenty of appeal in the first goalscorer market at 7.5 with bet365 and also looks decent value at 2.63 with Betfred to net anytime during the 90 minutes.
Over 2.5 goals looks a rock solid bet at 1.53 with Betfred, while Chelsea to win to nil also looks worth a wager at 1.91 with bet365 and Paddy Power.
