Chelsea are tied for the lead, but they have one game in hand and if they defeat Stoke City tonight, they will consolidate their position at the top of the Premier League. This is a match of critical importance and bookmakers know it all too well, which explains why the odds on the visiting team to win are so low.

Those who open a new account with BetVictor can increase their profits significantly if the favorites prevail, as the bookmaker is offering 4/1 on Chelsea to beat Stoke. This promotion only applies to new customers and it is virtually identical with the one made by Betfair to those who are willing to open a real money account. The only difference consists in the fact that their players will also be eligible for a money-back in the form of a free bet if they bet on the leaders and they fail to win.

Those who already have an account but wouldn’t miss out on this excellent opportunity should take Ladbrokes’ offer and bet on Diego Costa to score first. This outcome used to be priced at odds of 3/1, but the odds have been increased to 4/1. Another tempting proposition is made by Unibet who refunds all losing Correct Score, HT/FT, First Goalscorer and Last Goalscorer bets up to £75 on this Premier League match, if a goal is scored after the 90th minute.
