A good number of gamblers with a zeal for the Premier League will be interested in betting on the West Ham United vs Everton FC match. The official odds are already out and we think that they are quite favorable. In fact, it would be a shame not to exploit them.
Online gambling sites in the UK seem to envision a victory by West Ham. VBet Sportsbook, for instance, offers a 2/1 multiplier for Everton’s winning and only 7/5 for West Ham. (A draw is considered even less likely than Everton’s win, as that option is rewarded by a 9/4 multiplier.)
Don’t Let The Bookies Influence Your Bet on the West Ham vs Everton match
The bookies’ preference for West Ham is surprising for a number of reasons. For starters, Everton is currently ranked higher than West Ham: Everton’s 48 points places them in the 8th position, while West Ham is only number 15 in the Premier League standings.
Recent football history is also on Everton’s side. Not only did Everton win with a splendid 4-0 last time the team faced West Ham (November 2017), they also won 8 of their last 15 clashes (with 5 draws and only 2 losses). Everton has simply been better, both this season and in the past, and we would encourage you to pick the Toffees when betting on West Ham vs Everton.
Base Your Bet on The Two Teams’ Poor Defense
Most online sportsbook sites in the UK offer a betting special on the total number of goals, and that would make a great bet in the case of this match. Over 2.5 goals gives the same multiplier as the under 2.5 option (20/21). This is a steal considering that both teams have been struggling with lacklustre defense.
In particular, West Ham’s goalie, Joe Hart, has recently been criticized Chris Sutton. The former Chelsea striker said that Hart should not be picked as England’s goalkeeper in the upcoming World Cup.
Whether you decide to place money on the winner or the total number of goals, don’t wait too long. The match will take place on 13 May, so you only have a limited amount of time to place your bet on the West Ham and Everton clash.
