Blues travel to in-form Villa: The Odds

Chelsea travel to Aston villa knowing that victory will secure them a top four finish, and they are a top priced 1.85 with bet365 to get the job done.
The Blues have won two of their last four trips to Villa Park (D1, L1) and face a side who have won just three of their last 11 home matches in the Premier League, losing six.
However a win for the home side will ensure that the Villans are safe from being relegated so there is a lot at stake and the game promises to be a real hard fought affair.
Having said that it’s hard not to believe that Chelsea will not make their class tell, especially as they gave Villa their biggest ever defeat in the top flight when they met just before Christmas (8-0).
That was also the game with such Fernando Torres score his last goal  in the Premier League when he netted the opener in the third minute.
He is a a 7 chance with Boylesports and Paddy Power to repeat the dose and bag the first in this, and can also be backed at 2.75 with Boylesports to net anytime.
However it often pays to stick with players in form, and one that certainly fits that bill is Oscar.
He has now scored three goals in his last four league appearances after bagging only one in his opening 29, and looks worth an each-way wager at a top priced 11 with Paddy Power on the first goalscorer market to extend that streak.
Both teams to score also looks a solid wager at 1.62 with bet365 given that Villa have found the net in seven of their last 8 games, and over 2.5 goals also appeals at the 1.7 on offer with bet365.
In the correct score market I am going to suggest split stakes on Chelsea winning 3-1 or 3-2.
The former is 13 chance with Paddy Power, while the latter is a juicy looking 26 with Betfred.
