Chelsea will try to keep their recent unbeaten record going against Newcastle, but this should be a lot closer than you'd think, and there lies the value for our soccer picks.

Game Overview
Chelsea host Newcastle at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and despite the Blues' decent unbeaten run, they are no value whatsoever at the soccer odds on offer for the win in this clash.

The Blues are unbeaten under Guus Hiddink in the Dutchman's 11 matches in charge in the Stamford Bridge hot-seat, but in that unbeaten run, he's only registered three Premier League successes, and with a massive Champions League last 16 trip to Paris on Tuesday night, they just aren't worth risking at the prices.

Chelsea are as short as 1.40 for the win with Bet365, and that really is awful value for a side that has failed to win their last four home Premier League matches and look set to rest key-players as this match really is a nonevent for them as there is nothing to play for in the league and everything to play for in Europe.

The Blues' needed a last gasp Diego Costa equaliser to rescue them some points against Manchester United last time, and with six draws already under Hiddink, another stalemate looks the best soccer pick again at what is a massive 4.50 with Coral.

The two played out a very entertaining 2-2 draw at St. James' Park early in the season. Despite the Magpies splashing out more cash than any club in the January transfer window, I just can't see the new recruits getting maximum points in this one.

Steve McClaren's side got a much needed 1-0 win last week at home to West Brom, which was only their second win in their last 10 and that's why they've been given a quote of 8.00 with Bet365 to get a much needed win in west London on Saturday.

The bookies are still pricing Chelsea up as a top four club, but the table doesn't lie and the champions are languishing in 13th spot in the table and quotes of 1.40 are just silly, especially with their whole season hinging on the two-legs against Paris St. Germain, which will certainly take preference over this one.

 

Betting Analysis & Picks
When these two sides meet, usually it's more often than not a match that features lots of goals, and that certainly looks the case again.

In the last 12 matches between these two sides, 39 goals have been scored and over 2.5 goals at the 1.70 with BetVictor looks a decent bet for all neutrals wanting to have a wager while watching the game.

Both teams have now scored in five of the last six Chelsea home matches and with changes expected for the home side and new signings keen to impress for the visitors, both teams to score as a "yes" again at 1.91 with William Hill to keep up the recent entertainment between these two looks a nice play.

With goals expected and honors very likely be even, the final bet I like at a massive 21.0 with Bet365 on another 2-2 between these sides looks a very small wager, as that score-line has now happened twice in the last ten meetings between the two, and twice in the last five Chelsea home matches against similar opposition in Watford and West Brom.
