Why Chelsea is a good bet +478?
The loss to Manchester United was awful, yes, but a closer look reveals that the match got away from the Blues. In the first half, Chelsea played extremely well. Save for a penalty kick score by United’s Marcus Rashford, the Blues had a clean sheet.
More importantly, they controlled the flow of the match in that first half. If they can play two halves of decent soccer, who knows? They might pull off the upset versus favored Liverpool.

Why Liverpool is a good bet -158?
The Champions League top squad was exceptional in their first match of the English Premier League season. Pool dropped Norwich by a 4-1 score. What’s really impressive is that four different players scored for Liverpool in the match.
Liverpool has had a good offseason. They drew against Man City in the FA Community Shield before losing via penalties. They lost to Napoli and drew with Sporting CP. Those were friendlies, though. If Pool plays even close to the way they played this past Saturday against Norwich, they could beat Chelsea by two goals.

UEFA Super Cup Finals Soccer Betting Analysis
Chelsea played Manchester United tough in the first half. Although things really got away from them, the Blues are a good enough squad to keep it tight against Liverpool. However, that doesn’t mean Liverpool doesn’t take this match.
Pool is dead set on winning the English Premier League this season. Although this isn’t an EPL game, every player on Liverpool’s team would love to put a beating on an English Premier League rival. Don’t be surprised if Liverpool tries to establish their dominance by thrashing Chelsea.
But, taking Liverpool on the handicap might not be wise here. One game does make a season. New head man Frank Lampard knows that with some slight adjustments his team might have kept it close against Man U. Lampard won’t quit on his team, or strategy, after a single match. Expect a much stronger Chelsea squad. Liverpool wins, but Chelsea only loses by a single goal, which makes it a victory for the Blues as well.
