Blues face weekend Welsh test: The odds

Chelsea don’t have a good recent record against Swansea but are long odds-on and a best price of 1.36 with bet365 and Betfred to beat them at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues have won none of their last four matches against the Welsh side in all competitions (D3 L1) but do come into the game in far better form than their opponents who have won only one of their six games since winning the Capital One Cup.
The visitors seem to have run out a steam as the season draws to a close, and an on-song Chelsea should prove far too strong for them.
Frank Lampard needs to score in this match he will equal Andy Cole’s record of scoring against 38 different teams in the Premier League, and he is a 7 chance with bet365 in the first goalscorer market and a tasty looking 2.5 with Betfred to net anytime.
Those price look a bit of value, especially when you consider that Fernando Torres heads the first goalscorer market at a general price of 5 despite the fact that he has now gone 997 minutes without a goal in the top flight.
Petr Cech needs one more clean sheet to take third place in the outright list of Premier League clean sheets.
He has the best clean sheet ratio (0.49) of any goalkeeper in Premier League history (140 in 287 apps), and with that in mind Chelsea to win to nil at 2.3 with bet365 and Paddy Power looks well worth considering.
In the correct score market i like the look of a 2-0 Chelsea win, and that outcome is priced up at 7.5 with bet365.
