Match Result:

West Ham 6/1

Draw 34/10

Chelsea 5/10

Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change

Verdict:

There were encouraging signs for West Ham in defeat at the league leaders last weekend but home soil has not really been too much of a benefit since the move from Upton Park and Chelsea away games have generally been high scoring affairs. I’ll go with over 2,5 goals.

Bet: Over 2,5 goals at 8/10
