Chelsea vs Cardiff prediction

Chelsea have started the season better and even under new manager Maurizio Sarri, the Blues have won all their games.

Cardiff, on the other hand, are yet to win a game in the Premier League but do have a couple of draws to their name.

Playing at Stamford Bridge will certainly give Chelsea a boost and the Blues do have the better players when compared to their rivals.

The Blues certainly are being backed by the bookies with some putting Chelsea at 1/6 to win the game. Most of the bookies have put up such odds which backs Chelsea to win, while a person betting on the Blues wouldn’t get a lot of money back. However, if you are into there are quite a lot on the table as the league is far more unpredictable.

Cardiff are the ones that can give you a lot of money back but that is a major risk given they would be up against one of the best teams in England.
