Pick of the day #29: Chelsea – Sparta Praha
Chelsea won in the first game and they rest a few great players here (Cole, Hazard, Lampard and others), but they still have a good team. They do not need to win here, but the difference in class between Chelsea and Sparta Praha is great and the big team should win here.
The prices for Chelsea increased after the teams were announced, but I actually thought that they should play with even more reserves tonight. I pick Asian handicap -1, since they might be pleased with a one or two goals win.
Chelsea starting eleven: Cech, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Bertrand, Ramires, Oscar, Mikel, Torres, Mata, Moses
