Chelsea vs Everton match preview

Chelsea are unbeaten in 8 games and have won 5 of those 8. Everton have won their last 3 and kept a clean sheet in all 3 of those wins. When the sides met for the first time earlier in the season Everton won 1-0 with 6 corners for each team, 2 Everton yellow cards and 3 Chelsea yellow cards. Both sides have done well defensively of late, Chelsea have kept 7 clean sheets in their last 10 games and Everton have kept clean sheets in all of their last 3 games. Whilst Chelsea look convincing defensively, Everton still have a little way to go to convince they have it all sorted out at the back. Despite keeping 3 clean sheets in a row those 3 games were against a struggling Liverpool side and then Southampton and West Brom. Before the run of 3 clean sheets Everton had conceded 14 goals in the 8 games before that and they conceded at least 1 goal in all 8 of those games. Corners looks a good bet as Chelsea average over 6 per game on the season and Everton average over 4 corners per game on the season. Though we believe total match corners is the best bet as Everton have had just 2 corners or less in 4 of their last 7 games and as Chelsea have hit a double figure corner count on their own 4 times in their last 12 games there is a good chance that even if Everton have a low day then Chelsea could do the majority of the work. Chelsea have finished with no cards in 4 of their last 7 games and Chelsea’s opponents have finished with no cards in 2 of their last 4 games. Everton have had at least 1 card in 14 of their last 15 games and they were given 2 or more cards in 8 of those games. Everton opponents have been given at least 1 card in all of their last 10 games and 2 or more cards in 7 of those 10 games. So although Chelsea add some doubt to bookings we do believe Everton have an ability to bring out the worst in their opponents and this is shown by the number of bookings their opponents have had against them this season. This is on of those games where anything could happen as with so much attacking talent on show there could easily be goals, though the stats do suggest the smart bets are total match corners and booking points.

West Ham vs Leeds match preview

Leeds have lost 9 and won 8 of their last 17 and have now lost 3 of their last 4 games. West Ham lost to Man City last time out but have won 7 of their last 10 games. When the sides met earlier in the season it ended 2-1 to West Ham with 6 West Ham corners, 5 Leeds corners, 2 West Ham yellows and 1 Leeds yellow card. As we have pointed out on numerous occasions in recent weeks, Leeds style of play usually means they win or they lose, and this should lead to a good entertaining game against a West Ham side who still have strong hopes of European football. West Ham have been pretty consistent all season and if you excuse an opening day defeat against Newcastle they have only lost 6 games since then and those 6 losses came against Arsenal, Liverpool (Twice), Man United, Chelsea and Man City. West Ham have scored in 9 of their last 10 games and scored 2 or more goals in 5 of those games. West Ham have conceded in 6 of their last 8 games. Leeds have scored in 6 of their last 8 games and scored 2 or more in 5 of those games. Leeds have also conceded in 8 of their last 10 games. There looks a good chance of goals in this one with a high chance that both teams will score. Both teams will likely go for the win as West Ham know the fact that have struggled to beat top 6 sides means they really can’t afford to drop points against clubs below them in the table and Leeds have gone for the win all season so why would they change what’s worked for them now? Corners look a good bet as West Ham average over 4.50 corners a game this season and have had at least 3 corners in 18 out of their last 19 games, with the only time they failed to have 3 corners in those games coming in their last match when they had just 2 corners against Man City, though as we have pointed out before teams tend to have a lower corner count vs City due to spending long periods with no possession and backed up in their own half. Leeds average 5.73 corners a game this season and have had at least 3 corners in 15 of their last 16 games. So it looks likely both teams will have at least 3 corners each. Leeds have been given at least 1 card in 10 of their last 11 games and they were given 2 yellow cards in 2 of those games and 3 yellow cards in 3 of those games. West Ham have been given 11 yellow cards in their last 6 games so it looks likely that both teams will see at least a player booked. Any bet based around both teams to score or 2/3 goals in the match, 3+ corners each team and a card for each team looks to have a very good chance.
