Why Dortmund is a good bet versus Chelsea

Chelsea isn’t the only team that has fallen to Dortmund in recent weeks. The German Bundesliga squad is on fire.

Dortmund hasn’t just won 5 straight. The winning steak stretches back to 11 games. No victory was as impressive as the 2-1 win over rival RB Leipzig in the last.

Dortmund played a perfect match even though RB Leipzig controlled possession 62% to 38% and shot way more times, 17 to 8. Dortmund’s style goaded Leipzig into bad shots that allowed the winners to counter.

Final Betting Analysis: Dortmund at Chelsea

For sure, Chelsea can win. Also, the match happens at Stamford Bridge, which should motivate the Blues to get it done.

But the home team has a single positive performance in their last 5. In addition, the 1-0 match versus Leeds doesn’t inspire a ton of confidence. Yes, Chelsea beat Leeds.

Still, the victory opens up questions. Chelsea didn’t dominate and we shouldn’t kid ourselves. Leeds is not close to Dortmund’s level.

The German Bundesliga squad is kicking butt and taking names. Dortmund has rolled to 11 straight victories. On Tuesday, Dortmund makes it a dozen straight against a Chelsea team that is struggling this season.

Champions League Pick: Dortmund +295
