New Coral customers get 2/1 this Easter on Chelsea sinking Sunderland

| 19.04.2014

Fancy a flutter on the Premier League, but new to betting? Sign up with Coral on Good Friday, April 18th, and you will get a hugely enhanced price of 2/1 on Chelsea, our official partner, to win over basement club Sunderland.

Just to put how great those odds are in perspective, existing customers can only back the Blues for victory at 1/6. Your maximum stake is £10, but this is a fantastic way to make £20 profit.

A full list of terms and conditions, and how to sign up, is here. If you need any more convincing, here are some other reasons why this is such a great bet.

Sunderland have won twice at Stamford Bridge since the turn of the century. Those aberrations apart, the Blues have been utterly dominant in this fixture.

Heavy home victories, including scorelines of 7-2 and 5-0, have been commonplace throughout the Roman Abramovich era.

Gus Poyet’s Black Cats sit bottom of the league and, in his own words, “need a miracle” to preserve their top-flight status. They face a tough week, however, travelling first to the Etihad where a wounded Manchester City await before clashing with Chelsea.

Wearside outfit Sunderland are in a real slump, and last tasted Premier League victory by completing the double over their fiercely hated neighbours Newcastle on February 1st. Poyet’s men have conceded twice as many goals as they have scored on the road this term.

Certain Chelsea players can even boast unbeaten records against the Black Cats. Fernando Torres, for all his travails in front of goal, has six in 10 outings when previously paired with this opposition, contributing to nine wins and a draw.

Veteran Blues midfielder Frank Lampard, meanwhile, has eight in his last dozen appearances against Sunderland. Why not back him or Torres for goals then? The Spanish striker is 10/3 to score first, and Lampard is a 7/4 shot to net anytime.
