Premier League betting – West Ham v Man United
West Ham v Man United betting odds, tips & free bets
Manchester United will be wanting to put a bad March, that saw them lose two matches in the league, behind them with a good win against West Ham on Saturday. The Hammers though will be looking to continue their impressive league form that has recently lifted them out of the relegation zone. West Ham won this fixture in the Carling Cup back in November but suffered a 4-0 defeat the last time the two sides met at Upton Park in the league.
The Hammers look to have finally found some form in the league after losing only 1 of their last 6. The return to fitness of Tomas Hitzlsperger has been instrumental to their success as he has struck up a successful partnership with Scott Parker in the centre of midfield and equally as important, Demba Ba has started to show his quality up front. The striker has scored 5 goals in his last 4 games and is a great bet at 3.6 with Coral to score at any time. Unbeaten in their last 4 West Ham have scored an impressive 9 goals and definitely have a chance against Manchester United in the Saturday lunch time kick off if they can keep it tight at the back. Despite their good form the East-Londoners are still outsiders but nicely priced at 4.8 with betfair. Goals have definitely been the theme for West Ham fans recently as their last 2 home games have produced 7 goals so odds of 4.5 from Skybet for both teams to score first half are definitely worth a look.
Man United’s position at the top of the table is starting to look slightly unstable after back to back defeats in March so Alex Ferguson will be wanting to get back to winning ways after the international break. All 3 of The Red Devil’s league defeats have come on the road this season but Man United are still firm favourites and best priced at 1.83 with boylesports. Though a 2-1 away win is showing better odds of 9.0 at betfair even though Rio Ferdinand could still be absent through injury at the back for the league leaders. Javier Hernandez and Wayne Rooney should continue up front together after forming a formidable partnership recently. Hernandez in particular has scored 10 goals in 21 league games and is a great bet at 7.0 with Victor Chandler to open the scoring on the day.
Demba Ba anytime scorer – 3.6 Coral
West Ham WIN – 4.75 Victor Chandler
Both teams to score first half – 4.75 Coral
2-1 Man United WIN – 8.5 Bet 365
