Andre Villas-Boas and Chelsea Special Bets

So after Villas-Boas eventually ended the Chelsea manager-sage and became the 7th manager of the Abromovich era, much speculation has been made about how much of his three year contract he is likely to see out.

So we hunted around the various online bookmakers’ sites to find the best Andre Villas-Boas specials around. As expected he is Evs with Paddy Power to win a major trophy in his first season in charge. With Chelsea being 11/4 for the Premier League, 6/1 for the FA Cup and 9/1 in the Champions League betting this season, this price seems a little on the skinny side.

If you fancy him to do what Jose Mourinho and many others couldn’t and lift the Champions League trophy that Roman Ambramovich so desperately craves, you can back him at 2/1 (Paddy Power) to do just that.

It has already been suggested that Villas-Boas will try to bring in some of his Porto players (namely Falcao). SkyBet have latched on to this and are offering a market on how many of those Porto players will be brought in during this transfer window, quoting 11/10 for None, 2/1 for One, 11/4 for Two, 8/1 for Three and 20/1 for Four or more.

Of the other transfer rumours, Luka Modric‘s name contunies to be banded about and is 6/4 to be a Chelsea player come the end of the transfer window. That said, it’s not just about who the manager will bring in, but it is also a question of who may leave.

Luka Modric

Despite Tottenham wanting to sell, Luka Modric is 6/4 to become a Chelsea player before the Summer transfer window closes

Didier Drogba has been at the heart of evrything Chelsea have acheived over the past few years, yet is as short as 9/4 to join Harry Redknapp at Tottenham, and 8/1 to make a return to Marseille. AC Milan are said to be monitoring the situation and the 12/1 there seems to be a decent price at this stage.

In terms of trophies, Chelsea will need to get off to a flying start if they are to nick the Premier League title back from Sir Alex’s grasp. With that in mind Chelsea are 9/4 to go unbeaten their first 10 League games under their new manager. 9 of those games look incredibly winnable, but they will have to visit Old Trafford in September and that makes the price seem a little short to say the least.

Given that the 3 games Chelsea will face in August are Stoke (A), West Brom (H) and Norwich (H), the 3/1 for Villas-Boas to pick up the Manager of the Month award at the first time of asking looks decent value.

One of the reasons Mourinho was so successful during his reign, was his impeccable home form. If you fancy Villas-Boas to boast a similar record, they can be backed at 3/1 to go unbeaten during their 19 Premier League home games, or 20/1 to go the whole season unbeaten (home and away)!

And for the optomistic Chelsea fans amongst you, you can get a huge 100/1 for your team to do the treble this season.
