West Ham vs Chelsea Betting Tips and Predictions

  • Posted on: 28 March 2017

West Ham have had a mixed 2017 with three wins and three defeats in the eight games.

Two of those games have finished as a draw. The club will be taking on Chelsea on Monday night hoping to create a major upset in the Premier League title race. The blues will be visiting the London stadium in order to get a victory that would preserve their lead at the top of the table. Chelsea would have seen rivals Tottenham and Manchester City get wins during the weekend. The result puts a lot of pressure on the blues. It is one of the reasons for West Ham receiving a lot of value picks going in their favour.

A top pick for the game would be to back the occurrence of more than 2.5 goals. Even though Chelsea have struggled to have the same kind of influence in the away matches, they have more than enough capability to score goals on the road. This coupled with West Ham’s recent run of form at the London stadium makes the probability extremely high.

Eden Hazard has an excellent scoring record against West Ham, and the Belgian can be backed to score anytime in the game. The odds of 1.90 over 2.5 goals are truly excellent for this game. However, it is certainly difficult to back Chelsea at 1.65 for a victory. West Ham are given odds of 6.00 for a win, while a draw seems the best value for money bet at 4.30.

Those who would consider themselves extremely lucky can opt for a Chelsea win while witnessing over 2.5 goals in the game. It is available at an extremely tempting price of 7/5. It is a better bet than backing Chelsea to win and both teams to score at the same time, which is available at 5/2.
