AFC Wimbledon-Chelsea Betting Preview: Expect a comfortable afternoon for the Blues

After thrashing Wycombe in their opening pre-season match, Jose Mourinho takes his side to Kingsmeadow with another walk in the park expected for the Premier League side
Chelsea cruised past Wycombe this week, winning 5-0 in their first friendly of the summer and face AFC Wimbledon looking to build on that bright early showing.

A squad including John Terry, Branislav Ivanovic, Oriol Romeu and Mark Schwarzer ran out comfortable winners, with Terry and Ivanovic both getting on the scoresheet after coming on at half-time.

Mourinho's men travel to Europe after this fixture where they will face the likes of Vitesse and Werder Bremen. bet365 price them at 1/5 (1.20) to beat the Wombles.

Unsurprisingly AFC Wimbledon are priced at 7/1 (8.00) to win with William Hill. Ardley has brought in a number of new players to Kingsmeadow this summer, which has seen them be fancied by many to gain promotion to League One.

The hosts face the likes of Sutton United Woking and Aldershot before their first match against Shrewsbury in August. Wimbledon drew almost a third of their matches in League Two last season, with bet365 pricing this outcome at 11/2 (6.50).

With AFC Wimbledon and Chelsea having differing starts to their pre-season, it could be a long afternoon for the Wombles as they face a rampant Chelsea side. Despite being a tad skinny it's worth siding with a safe option of Chelsea half-time and full-time at 8/13 (1.62).  Expect the Blues to come out firing from the start, with this bet landing easily against Wycombe last time out.

Chelsea half time/full time for a 2.5 point stake at 8/13 (1.63) with bet365
