Chelsea vs Newcastle by Jamesington
An 'interest' bet in this match first off when looking at Newcastle's potential goalscorers. Striker Leon Best has been ruled out through injury for sometime, Kevin Nolan is now sidelined after undergoing ankle surgery and Stephen Ireland (who in his short time on the park in each appearance always seemed to create a chance) has gone back to Villa after injury ended his chances of a first goal for the club. This leaves Shola Ameobi, Nile Ranger and Peter Lovenkrands as the only fit goalscorers in the squad. None of these has hit double figures this season - indeed Ranger has found the net only once. So if Newcastle are going to score we might expect a goal to come from elsewhere in the side and that leaves me looking at the defence with Steven Taylor and Fabricio Coloccini probably the most likely candidates to score from set-pieces out of every player in the side. From set plays, Taylor and his Argentinian partner will be incredibly dangerous and Steven Taylor loves to score a goal or two.
I think the odds on these players to net 'at anytime' in the match are massive, particularly given that the match means approximately nothing to either side, Chelsea are assured of second place (barring a major slip up) and Newcastle will finish in mid-table. Throw in Jose Enrique to the mix - the forward thinking Spanish left-back and we have quite a solid possibility of a goal with each player paying out at least 20 points for every point staked.
Due to the aforementioned injury problems and lack of a real goalscorer Newcastle are probably unlikely to win this match (watch them now win 4-3 in a thriller!!) so I fancy Chelsea to net a few and get a fairly easy victory, cementing second spot. Hell, even Fernando Torres might get a goal! As the odds on a home win are fairly poor value, take the OVER 3.5 GOALS outcome at odds of 2.3 with Unibet as Chelsea are the third highest home scorers in the league behind Manchester and (oddly) Newcastle United.
