Chelsea is coming off an EPL Cup Final loss to Liverpool on penalties and will return to Premier League action for the first time in two weeks when they take on Burnley March 5th at 10:00 AM EST.
The Blues have never lost a Premier League match at Turf Moor and haven't lost to Burnley period since 2017, but after an exhausting, emotional match, will the home squad be able to catch Chelsea at the right time?

Chelsea vs Burnley Prediction and Pick
This is a rematch of a 1-1 draw from November and I think the draw is presenting value once again. Chelsea has only won outright once in their past five Premier League fixtures while Burnley is winless in their last five but have covered the spread in four.
The Blues could be without key contributors like Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azplicueta, not to mention the mental and physical exhaustion that is likely to follow the EFL Cup.
In Chelsea's last three as a favorite, they've drawn twice. Meanwhile, while Burnley only has three Premier League wins this season, they've had 12 draws. They've drawn in half of their home fixtures and would be happy with one against the Blues here.
I expect a low-scoring, tightly contested game as Chelsea regroups and shifts focus back to the Premier League. As a result, the draw is presenting tremendous value at +325.
Pick: Draw +325
