The past two English Premier League champions take center stage at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, at 10 a.m. ET on NBC Sports Network as Leicester City battles Chelsea. Chelsea is a -385 money line favorite, meaning you'd have to wager $385 to win $100. Leicester City is a 1.5-goal underdog.

The Over-Under, or total number of goals oddsmakers think will be scored, is three, unchanged from the open.

Before you bet Chelsea vs. Leicester City, you need to see what renowned European soccer expert David Sumpter has to say.

Sumpter is an applied mathematician who wrote "Soccermatics," a book that shows how math works inside the game. Together with renowned analysts, Professor Sumpter developed the powerful Soccerbot model.

The Soccerbot reads current odds and all team performance data, calculates key metrics and predicts upcoming matches. In the two-and-a-half seasons since it was born, the Soccerbot is up 1,800 percent on bookmakers' closing odds.

That's unheard of.

Now, the Soccerbot has set its sights on the EPL fixture between Chelsea and Leicester City, and its picks are in. You can see them over at SportsLine.

We can tell you the model likes the total going Under, but what about betting the money line and against the spread?

Sumpter knows the Blues will be glad this game is being played at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea has won seven consecutive Premier League games played at home, including its most recent 5-0 performance against Stoke City. 

And Chelsea's back line has been superb at Stamford Bridge, only allowing one goal in the Premier League since October.

Leicester City, meanwhile, has dropped each of the last four meetings against Chelsea, including a 2-1 defeat at home earlier this season.

But just because Chelsea has had success against Leicester City recently doesn't mean they will cover the spread or provide value on the money line. 

Leicester City has scored in each of its last four Premier League fixtures and is fresh off a 3-0 thumping of Huddersfield United.

And Leicester City's Jamie Vardy, who is ninth in the EPL in scoring, returns from injury, giving the Foxes plenty of firepower.

Sumpter's model identified where the value lies on the money line and against the spread. His Soccerbot has found a glaring statistic that determines which side of Chelsea-Leicester City you need to be all over, and he's only sharing it over at SportsLine.

So which side should you back in the Chelsea-Leicester City game on Saturday? Visit SportsLine now to see which side of Chelsea-Leicester City you need to be all over, all from an expert whose model has made an incredible 1,800 percent return on the bookmakers' closing odds, and find out.
