Tottenham Hosts Chelsea In London Derby - Soccer Odds And Lines

The 2022-2023 English Premier League has crossed the halfway point and is now deep into the stretch run. It will be an important couple of months for Tottenham and Chelsea, as both will look to salvage something from what has been a disappointing campaign in West London and the Spurs section of North London. Sports betting sites have reasonably tabbed Spurs as the slight favorite over Chelsea for this London Derby on February 26th, which makes sense considering their spot in the table and the fact that they’re playing at home.


  • Tottenham Hotspur come into the matchup as very slight favorite
  • Chelsea will look for their first Premier League win since January 15
  • Tottenham enter the weekend in 4th in the PL while Chelsea comes in down in 10th

Tottenham vs. Chelsea Soccer Odds

Tottenham have lost two of their past five matches, while Chelsea hasn’t won in six outings in all competitions. Both teams desperately need a win in this situation, and Derbies are always hard-fought matches. Tottenham has lost just two matches against London clubs this season, both to league leaders and North London rivals Arsenal.

Tottenham Hotspur Odds

Tottenham enters this London Derby in a strange run of form. They beat an overachieving Fulham side 1-0 at Craven Cottage, then won their FA Cup 4th Round fixture 3-0, and followed those solid results up with a shocking 1-0 defeat of Premier League title favorites and reigning champions Manchester City, overcoming a late red card for defender Christian Romero to secure the points.

However, they followed that impressive run of results up with an embarrassing showing at King Power Stadium against Leicester City, losing 4-1 to a side that is only four points clear of the relegation zone currently. The score could have been a lot worse as well. They then went to Northern Italy and lost 1-0 to AC Milan in a Champions League tie before bouncing back last weekend with a 2-0 victory over West Ham.

As always, Spurs have been relying heavily on the talents of talisman and No. 9 Harry Kane, who recently became the all-time leading goal scorer in Tottenham history. Heung-min Son also put in his first goal since January 4th in that win against West Ham, which is a great sign.

Son is usually one half of Tottenham’s deadly attacking duo along with Kane, having scored 40 goals over the previous two campaigns. The South Korean international has been out of form all season, however, managing just five goals in 20 starts. If he can rediscover his form, Spurs should be able to battle back into the top four to finish off this season. But that’s a big if.

Chelsea FC Odds

While Spurs have been having a topsy turvy campaign, they still remain in the hunt for a spot in the top four, which results in a Champions League berth for next season. Chelsea, meanwhile, are the same amount of points from the relegation zone, 11, as they are from the top four. This could end up being one of the worst seasons for Chelsea in recent memory: they have finished lower than 5th just once since 2002.

It has been a strange season for Chelsea, who recently saw a change in ownership when Russian businessman Roman Abramovic was forced to sell the team. The new owner, Todd Boehly, sacked manager Thomas Tuchel after a slow start to the season (barely a season after he had led the club to the 2021 Champions League title), and replaced him with Graham Potter, who hasn’t fared much better.

Boehly has thrown a ton of money at the problem without much of a discernible strategy, spending about $400 million USD on eight players that have yet to make a major impact on the fortunes of the team so far. Chelsea have won just one of their 10 matches in all competitions in 2023, including three draws and two losses in their last five outings.

While they have been able to create chances from time to time, the problem with Chelsea is that they have been unable to finish them. If they could find a way to make it click at that end of the pitch, they could have a strong finish: their 23 goals allowed this season are tied for second-fewest in the EPL, tied with Arsenal and behind only Newcastle, both of whom are in the top five currently.

There have not been multiple goals scored by Chelsea or their opponents in their last six games, which means this London Derby at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium could be another tight low-scoring battle.
