as great as we are, we tipsters gotta eat too

everything tells me chelsea are not gonna win this one. they have a long injury list, while liverpool are almost at full strength, save for fernando torres's injury. also, liverpool have had the rub of the green in recent matches, achieving morale-boosting comeback victories and with late winners to boot. they have, so to speak, the luck of champions, and it would be unwise to bet against them. however, let's not forget that liverpool perform well when people least expect it. tonight, most people will be expecting them to achieve at least a draw at stamford bridge, and i think they will disappoint. a strikeforce shorn of fernando torres will likely waste chances, which is a huge no-no when it comes to big matches like these. also, skrtel's injury has forced benitez to play daniel agger who's clearly lacking match sharpness. he made one or two errors last week, and was lucky to get away with them. liverpool have been lucky for quite a while, and i think chelsea can finally punish them, which would be unfortunate, as i would rather these two draw, so my arsenal can push on up the table.

Eddy's prediction: $5 on chelsea -0.5 @ 1.97 = $9.85
