Leagues Tipped:


A COUPLE of weeks ago bookies looked ready to pay out on Chelsea to win the title – but five wins a row have cast doubts over Jose Mourinho's side's ability to stay at the summit.

Just when his men were looking invincible they lost at Newcastle and that's given sides such as City a bit of hope going into the hectic festive season.

Chelsea travel to Stoke on Monday night trying to put some daylight between themselves and City. There's no getting away from the fact this will be a test for Mourinho's men who will need to be in the right frame of mind for a battle on what's forecast to be a miserable night.

The Blues have lost just one of 12 Premier League encounters with Stoke – so they cope better than the opposition than the likes of Arsenal – although they went down there 3-2 defeat last season.

Mark Hughes's men rumbled up Arsenal once again a few weeks ago – leading 3-0 before hanging on to a 3-2 win – but they're unlikely to bully Chelsea into submission.

Chelsea should pick up the points but are no bigger than 13-20 at McBookie so best bet for me is Diego Costa to score at any time at 1-1 with boylesports.

The Spanish international wouldn't look out of place in the Stoke side as he plays in a no-holds barred style. The likes of centre-half Ryan Shawcross won't roll him over and Costa is worth a look at 7-2 with McBookie to score first.

It could be fiery and a red card in the match pays 17-5 at William Hill.

Stoke are as big as 11-2 at McBookie, bet365 and BetVictor and anyone who fancies that might want to consider Stoke draw no bet at 15-4 with McBookie and BetVictor.

    *** STOKE v CHELSEA – Bet365 offer :-)

    This is what I will be doing for a guranteed profit. Follow if you wish.

    1) £50 pre bet on CHELSEA TO WIN @ 8/13 RETURNS – £80.76
    2) £50 in-play bet on DRAW @ 3/1 (Currently) RETURNS – £200.00
    3) £10 bet on STOKE TO WIN @ 11/2 (Ladbrokes) RETURNS £65.00

    1) If CHELSEA WIN – (RETURNS £80.76) You minus £50.00 which you placed pre bet, you get your in-play bet of £50 refunded from Bet365, minus the £10 you placed with Ladbrokes for the Stoke win = £20.76 PROFIT

    2) DRAW – (RETURNS £200.00) You minus your £50.00 pre bet, minus your £50 in play bet & minus your £10 you placed with Ladbrokes for the Stoke win = £90.00 PROFIT

    3) If STOKE WIN – (RETURNS £65.00) You minus the £10 you placed with Ladbrokes on the Stoke win, minus the £50 bet you placed pre bet with Bet365, you receive your inplay £50 back as a refund as its lost = £10.00 PROFIT

    :-) :-) :-) Hope this is useful to most of you. Like I stated I always go for PROFIT – The more friends & family you have….The more Chinese takeaways you can get for free ;-)

    Good luck all :-) :-)

      Excellent plan Harpreet.

      Ditto for me buddy except for my ‘insurance’ bet, I am putting £15 on Stoke not a tenner.

      Best of luck to everyone though, particularly those who are taking some more calculated risks than I am. You each deserve any good fortune that comes your way.

  3. Harpreet 6 years ago


    Good luck mate :-) Stoke will give CHELSEA a hard game tommorow but the reason I’m only putting a tenner on them as I can’t see them WINNING. A draw maybe but can’t see them winning.

  4. paul 6 years ago

    If you cant see em winning harpreet theyre not going to win

    IM on your plan

  5. hammer 6 years ago

    harpreet that looks great to me. i seriously think stoke are more than capable of grinding out a draw tomorrow. chelsea have struggled away at stoke in the past and i think the same could happen again tomorrow.

  6. Juan Mata 6 years ago

    All chelsea’s away games have all seen both teams score, except at stadium of light, where Gus Poyet came with five trains, parked into his defence line. I see btts coming

  7. Chy 6 years ago

    The scenario if Chelsea wins is that you get $80.7 (returns from pre-match bet) + $50 (free in-play bet which will be refunded).This equals 130. I’m not taking the In-play bet into account because it’s free money and if it loses it would be refunded.

  8. Harpreet 6 years ago


    Exactly mate so this is why you make £20.76 PROFIT if CHELSEA win :-)

    Paul & Hammer

    Good luck to you guys !! Keep to this plan and you will make a profit. The beauty about my plan is that if its a DRAW you will make £90.00 PROFIT and like I’ve stated on the other main thread I fancy 1-1 tonight :-)

    If it doesn’t happen it simply doesn’t happen – You make £5 if Stoke win & £20.76 if Chelsea turn on there style.

    Let’s hope for a DRAW though sssssssssshhhhh ha ha

  9. Harpreet 6 years ago

    Sorry just to note:


  10. Chy 6 years ago

    Bet done with your money is $60 (50 from 365 and 50 from other Bookie)
    Free bet is $50 (will be refunded if it loses)

    If Chelsea wins you get 80 + 50 (refunded free bet because Chelsea lost) which equals 130
    Profit equals 130-60 which is 70

    If the match ends in a draw you get 200 (because you put the free bet on the draw) and your profit becomes 200-50-10 which equals 140

    If Stoke wins you get 65 (winnings from other bookie) plus the 50 free which equals 115 and your profit is 115-50 (pre-match bet) and your profit is 65

  11. Chy 6 years ago

    Sorry the 3rd line should read 10 from other bookie

  12. Dugclark 6 years ago

    Chy you need to put on the free bet before it is refunded so all your calcs are missing the £50 in play bet that is put on i.e. the total outlay for the Chelsea win is £50 (original bet) + £10 on Stoke + £50 in play = £110.

  13. Chy 6 years ago

    The inplay bet is a free bet. 365 will give it when you place the pre-match bet and it will be refunded if it loses

    • Alex 6 years ago

      chy – you are wrong, you have to part with your own money in play.

  14. Bryn thomas 6 years ago

    On 365 with this free bet I was going to bet on cards, £50 stake returns £91.

    My thinking is bet on cards before 31 mins and with the free in play bet on card after 31 mins.

    Is that not a return of about £40 profit either way?


  15. Chy 6 years ago

    Thanks Dug.Just went through the 365 conditions again.

  16. kevka 6 years ago

    Any thoughts on how many cards we’ll see in the match? The over 45 points at 5/4 looks big but this ref hasnt showed lots of cards in the last matches

  17. yulasinio 6 years ago

    Kevka, looking at the same. But this ref showed 2, 4, 3, 4 in his last matches.
    I’m looking to put the 50 pre match on over 4 AH cards @ 1.900, then wait till half time and see how the game is going before decide on what to put the 50 in play.

  18. Saj 6 years ago

    I’m quite confused about the BET365 offer, can you place the risk free bet on asain handicaps too? If that loses will you get refunded or does it just apply to only a certain type of bets?

  19. daz 6 years ago

    Stoke very strong high winds and will be a very cold night at the Britannia.Stoke raise the game against the top teams like Arsenal.If Chelsea play like they did against sunderland and Newcastle then a shock win could be on the cards.

  20. Egor 6 years ago

    What do you think about 1 half over 1??

  21. Chris Guy 6 years ago

    If you’re backing a red card in the Chelsea match why not have a side bet on red card to be issued in the first half. The price is huge @ 13/1 with Paddy Power. Boylesports offer 13/2 and Stan James 10/1 so 13/1 is decent.

  22. QPR FAN 6 years ago

    I am still undecided at to my In play bet.. this is sooo hard :***(

  23. hammer 6 years ago

    the easiest way for decent guaranteed profit is to go 50 on chelsea prematch and then 50 on double chance stoke and draw in play as soon as it kicks off. at current odds this would guarantee 28 quid if chelsea win and 20 quid if they dont. personally i prefer harpreets way because i think a draw is likely.

  24. leicesterlad 6 years ago

    Is there anywhere whats says you cant put 50 on chelsea win then inplay draw or stoke 50 on that

  25. Shogun 6 years ago

    The simple way to guarantee a profit in this is:

    Pre match bet put £50 on Chelsea to win.

    In play bet back double chance with a Stoke/Draw and either way you will make a couple of quid

  26. Hudmystar 6 years ago

    £50 on over 0.5 goals then £50 inplay on the draw of it’s a score draw big money return. Craig Alves taught me that and it paid off yesterday why win small when it’s risk free I’d prefer to go with the chance to win big like yesterday.

  27. Elbows 6 years ago

    Nevermind guaranteeing pennies in profit. This is a £50 risk free bet, take a chance and try and win decent profit. Its hardly worth depositing 100 quid and waiting on it going in the bank for a tenner profit.

    I’ll probably be looking at an any time scorer in play, will decide after seeing how the game pans out. Absolutely nothing to lose and decent money to gain. Has to be worth a gamble rather than using 100 to win a tenner, jeezo.

  28. Elbows 6 years ago

    Hudmystar what did you get for the draw?

  29. Alva glen 6 years ago

    Stoke can give Chelsea a game no denial in that.At 14/1 and both teams to score is massive I will have £10 on that and will have a ton on Chelsea same bet at 3/1.Stoke have conceded in their last 10 games.

  30. AL 6 years ago

    Taking a chance on some goals here.

    The last 2 games here between the sides have finished 3-2 Stoke & 4-0 Chelsea.

    Pre Match Bet – Over 3.5 Goals @ 12/5 – Returns £170 (+£50 should the in play fail to come in

    Free In Play Bet – Over 4.5 Goals @ 11/2 – Returns £325

    3 goals or less = £50 loss
    4 goals = £170 win & £50 refund = £220
    5 goals + = £495

  31. Mark 6 years ago

    Went brave again 50 in play on Chelsea to win 2-0. That’s three out of three. Shame Bet365 don’t do this offer every week

  32. Gaz H 6 years ago

    Harpreet-Boooom!! What did I tell u last night? £50 on Over .5 goal pre match and £50 on Chelsea 2-0!! Merry Christmas!!!

  33. Harpreet 6 years ago
