Since they were shocked 3-2 at home by Burnley, Chelsea have been firing on all cylinders before being rudely interrupted by World Cup qualifiers.
A late free kick from Marcos Alonso gave the Blues a 2-1 win over Spurs before outsmarting Everton 2-0, and now they are looking to take that form to a team they have beaten 11 times in their past 13 attempts.
Alvaro Morata remains a key figure for Antonio Conte’s side as they head to the Midlands to play Leicester City, and Genting are offering 16/5 (4.20) that the former Real Madrid striker nets first.
Leicester have not had the greatest of starts to the season, although they have faced tough away opposition in both Arsenal and Manchester United, and are currently 15th in the table.
That said, scoring has not been much of an issue for them as Jamie Vardy and Shinji Okazaki who have each found the net twice, and the latter can be backed at 15/2 (8.50) to score first.
Chelsea should win this match quite comfortably, though, and the best bet is the Blues to win and over 2.5 goals, priced at a generous 17/10 (2.70) and will come in if the Blues recreate both their 3-0 wins over the Foxes last season. While boosting the odds on an away win, this bet also allows for the free-scoring Foxes to contribute to a high-scoring game.
If that is not quite enough juice for punters to consider getting involved, Conte’s men to win with a -2 handicap is out at a whopping 5/1 (6.0).
