Chelsea host Luton Town in the Premier League on Friday night after a dreadful start to the 2023/24 campaign for both sides.
Chelsea vs Luton odds
Chelsea are 1/4 favourites with their squad valued far higher than the newly promoted side Luton, who are themselves a huge 9/1 to win in 90 minutes and 11/2 to grab a draw in another London derby.

Chelsea vs Luton predictions
Chelsea drew with Liverpool two weeks prior to this game but ended up losing their London clash with West Ham by three goals to one.
Chelsea haven’t quite found their rhythm with a litany of new players and a new manager, a similar problem they faced last season.
Luton have only had one outing so far so they’re still a bit of an unknown entity in the league, albeit priced as favourites to go down.
But their squad depth is far lower than Chelsea’s and even if they still aren’t in sync with each other, they should still have the quality to get ahead and they showed signs of that against Liverpool.
Chelsea vs Luton betting tips
Nicolas Jackson to score – 13/10
Nicolas Jackson will now get a few chances to get his Premier League career off the mark after impressing in the Premier League Summer Series.
So far he’s had two appearances and two yellow cards and will be better off adding to his scoring tally this time out.
The 22-year-old netted 12 last season in La Liga and may need some time to settle into the style of the English top-flight and against Luton will have plenty of chances.
Both teams to score, Chelsea to win, over 3 goals – 5/2
The Blues are still, at times, a shambles in defence and Luton will be keen to get off the mark themselves and should get a few chances themselves to take the game to Chelsea.
Chelsea are likely to outlast them though and there could be a fair few goals in this one.
