The Hammers travel to South Wales on Saturday to go head-to-head against Swansea for the first time since 1999. The two teams participate in the weekend’s early kick off at 12.45pm.
The Swans come off the back of an emphatic win against QPR as they drilled five past their opponents. The Welsh contingent looked impressive as they utilised their renowned fluid football to break down the home team.
Scott Sinclair has been linked with a move away after proving the skills he is capable of producing. The winger was on the score sheet again last Saturday as he coolly finished the thrashing of Rangers. Sinclair stands as a tantalising 7/1 to score first at BetFred.
Michu is at a 6/1 with BetFred and that could, just be, an intelligent bit of punting as he scored a debut double on the season’s opening day last week.
Swansea multiplied West Ham’s first game goal tally by five but you wouldn’t be frowned upon for banking on a portion of goals from both sides, as the two teams have managed 22 goals between them in just their last six meetings.
Bet365 odds on this Premier League match:
11/10 Swansea, 23/10 Draw, 13/5 West Ham
The East London outfit got off to a flyer last week, capturing a 1-0 win against Aston Villa. The newly promoted side looked promising as they structured a tight back four yet still threatened going forward. Neither team have any notable injuries and will look to continue the momentum they have managed to obtain so far.
A high scoring game could be on the cards to start this Saturday’s fixtures but I anticipate a closely contested fixture that might just be too close to call.
Swansea v West Ham Betting Tips Verdict:
- A bet worth taking is the 23/10 with Bet365 Online Bookmaker on a draw.
- If you want to be even more specific then take the 12/1 odds with Bet365 on the result being 2-2.
