Betting Tip: West Bromwich +0.50 @ 12/13 with bet365

Chelsea have won the Premier League title and it must be hard for the Blues to remain motivated in these final few games. The players have spent the lion’s share of the campaign focused on getting over the line and we’re unlikely to see a driven performance at The Hawthorns against a West Brom side who are unbeaten in their past four matches.

Tony Pulis will want his team to go out with a bang in their final home match of the season, with the Baggies boss proving once again that he’s a superb rescue man after taking the ship that was sinking under Alan Irvine and turning things around.

West Brom have collected recent wins at Selhurst Park and Old Trafford, while they held Liverpool to a goalless draw at home and can achieve a similar result against a Chelsea side who have recently taken their foot of the gas.

The Blues only managed a 1-1 draw at home to Liverpool last Sunday and Mourinho might use this game to field Ruben Loftus-Cheek after the 19-year-old enjoyed an hour in the last match.

So it’s a match which could end in a draw or possibly a surprise win and there’s little point backing Chelsea who will be taking things easy after a long season.
