How Profitable Was Betting On Chelsea During Sarri’s First Season In The Hot Seat?

Much was expected of the so called “Sarri ball” after the former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri took over from Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge at the beginning of the 2018-19 season.

Chelsea made some significant moves in the transfer market to appease their new manager by signing Italian international Jorginho from his former club to be his “quarterback”  in the 2018 summer and to ensure a smoother transition to Sarri’s style as Jorginho was already well familiar with what was needed from their time together in Serie A.

Chelsea also added striker Gonzalo Higuain on loan in January from Milan and sent the under-performing Alvaro Morata to Atletico Madrid on loan in the January transfer window to further help their boss.

As you can see from the graphic below if you had bet £10 on Chelsea with Betway to win every Premier League game then you would have lost £46 over the season with the best possible win of £28 coming when Chelsea inflicted Man City’s first loss of the campaign 2-0 at the Bridge in game 18 of the season.

Betting £10 on Sarri’s team to lose every League match would have seen you lose £36 across the season but had you backed Chelsea to suffer defeat against Leicester City at home in game 18 of the League campaign you would have won an impressive £96 as the Foxes beat Chelsea 1-0 giving the best return of the season.

Despite the up and down nature of the Blues’ season, you can see that betting £10 on Chelsea to draw every League game would have delivered a season profit of £26 with the best return of £55 coming from game 35 when they drew at home to Burnley 2-2. So you can see according to Betway that backing Chelsea to draw across all 38 League games would have been the only way you could have won money across the season if you backed the same result all season long.
