Game of the Week - Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach EPL Rotation #200153 Saturday 10* Top Play Chelsea Goal Line -1 -110 @ Burnley @ 11 AM ET - Chelsea has had a sluggish start to the season but their prized acquisitions to give them more on the offensive attack are starting to come together. That means the next team in line will have to pay for the frustrating start to the season for the Blues. That said, this situation has all the elements I look for in a very big play. As a result of Chelsea being on the road for this one we get line value. Burnley, though on their home pitch, is likely to prove to be the perfect punching bag for the Blues to take out their frustration. Of course that is why the money line on this is up to as high as a -200 because I am not the only one that sees the likelihood of a Chelsea win here! There are other sharps out there that see the same thing. That said, where the value is here is with the goal line. With this particular match that means laying 1 goal on Chelsea and that gives us a pick'em price in the -110 range. I feel that is the much better value than laying nearly 2 to 1 odds on the money line. That said, of course a 1-goal win for the Blues would result in a push with our bet here but I am quite confident of a blowout in this one. Why? Burnley has totaled just 3 goals in their 5 fixtures this season! Chelsea, on the other hand, is off a 4-0 win in Champions League action and AVERAGING 2 goals per match in Premier League action this season and they averaged 2 goals per game in their road matches last season! Burnley was delivered a clean sheet in their only two matches on their home pitch this season. They will again struggle to score in this one and the road team pulls away for a win by a multiple goal margin. 10* CHELSEA Goal Line -1 goal -110
