Benitez hopes for comfortable game against Wigan: The Odds

Chelsea are 1.36 with bet365 to returning to winning ways in their home game against Wigan.
The Blues desperately need to secure all three points having won none of their last four games – all of which have been on the road.
However their last game on their own patch did see them register a 2-1 win over Arsenal, and the stats are excellent for them as for as this clash is concerned.
Rafa Benitez’s men have won 12 and lost just one of the 15 Premier League meetings with Wigan.
The visitors have also won just one of their last 12 PL games (W1 D4 L7), and managed to keep just one clean sheet in the last 15 matches.
That suggests that Chelsea should have little difficulty registering a comfortable win, and I expect them to so so without conceding.
You can get 2.4 with Paddy Power about them winning to nil, and that looks big given that they are as short as even money (2) eleswhere.
Chelsea have also scored exactly two goals in each of their last four Premier League games and on each of the last three occasions one has been netted by Frank Lampard and one by Juan Mata.
However my money is going to be on Demba Ba in the goalscorer markets.
He has scored four goals in four Premier League games against Wigan – only against West Brom (5) has he scored more – and that makes him look worth a punt at 4 with Paddy Power in the first goalscorer market and 1.73 with Boylesports to net anytime.
For those that like to play in the correct score market I like the look of a 2-0 win for Chelsea, and that outcome is priced up at 7.5 withbet365.
