Chelsea Accommodate The Posh
Antonio Conte will be playing his second string on Sunday so Peterborough can avoid a heavy defeat and win us a handicap bet.
The bookies seem to have priced up this match as if the Chelsea who are leading the Premier League will be taking to the pitch. Nothing will be further from the truth and we should therefore explore the handicap markets.
Peterborough are best odds of evens (Coral) to win a contest where they’re given a hypothetical 3 goals added on. In other words they just need to avoid losing by three goals or more for us to win the bet.
You can be confident that Posh boss Grant McCann will name as strong a side as he can for the trip to Stamford Bridge and those players have been performing well at League One level.
They are seven unbeaten in all competitions and have suffered defeat just once in 13 outings going back to October.
Against a second string they can avoid embarrassment.
