Bournemouth vs Chelsea Prediction & Pick
These two squads enter Saturday heading in completely different directions. Bournemouth has won four of its last five matches and is doing everything it can to secure a spot in the EPL moving forward. Chelsea has lost each of its last five matches and is in a surprising tailspin under shaky management.
This is still a Chelsea team that is loaded with talented players, though. Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has tallied 9 clean sheets on the season, which includes when he kept Bournemouth from scoring in a 2-0 Chelsea victory back in December. If Chelsea is going to get back into a groove, now is the time.
Give me the road team to earn a gritty victory and finally get back on track in Premier League play.
Final Score Prediction: Bournemouth: 0 | Chelsea: 2

Bournemouth vs Chelsea Best Bet
Chelsea has only tallied 11 wins in EPL play, which makes the impact of Arrizabalaga's 9 clean sheets even more obvious. This team relies on the 28-year-old to keep them in the game with timely saves and elite clears. Three of the last five matchups between these teams have featured the losing squad getting shut out, so backing Bournemouth to be held scoreless for a huge payout is worth a shot.
