West Ham United v Chelsea Premier League Betting Tips 05/12/2021
Some Premier League fans and followers may not have predicted West Ham vs Chelsea being a top-four clash this season, but this is what this fixture is, so it’s time for our West Ham United v Chelsea Premier League Betting Tips 05/12/2021. The Hammers have surpassed expectations and taken on some of the top-flight big boys, while Chelsea are a winning machine under Thomas Tuchel. There will be some added spice given the history and rivalry to this fixture, which should make for a compelling game of football. West Ham vs Chelsea kicks off at 12:30 on Saturday, and it will be broadcast on BT Sport.
West Ham are on a three-match winless run in the Premier League following a 1-1 home draw against Brighton on Wednesday. The East Londoners lost away matches against Wolves and Man City before the Brighton stalemate. Chelsea are on a 12-match unbeaten run after they narrowly beat Watford 2-1 away. The Blues have won six of their last eight in the Premier League. Aaron Creswell may be in contention for West Ham, but Angelo Ogbonna (knee) will not feature. For Chelsea, N’Golo Kante is likely to miss out again with a knee injury, while Trevoh Chalobah (thigh), Mateo Kovacic (thigh) and Ben Chilwell (knee) are unavailable.
Matchwinner Betting Odds
Firstly, looking at the matchwinner odds for West Ham vs Chelsea, there is some good value to be found across the board. David Moyes’ West Ham have been hard to beat at home this season, and they are on a five-match unbeaten run at the London Stadium in all competitions. A West Ham win this weekend would be a good outsider bet, and SBK provides the best odds at 41/10. For better value, and a more likely result, a draw could be a decent choice. Chelsea notoriously struggle in East London, and they are winless in five of their last seven games at the London Stadium. SpreadEx will provide the best odds of 29/10 for a stalemate this weekend. On current form, though, there is no ignoring this Chelsea side. The Blues have won five of their last seven in all competitions and their last five away in the league. At 6/7, provided by VBet, there is still some good value on an away win.
Win to Nil Bet Market
To add a bit more value to a potential Chelsea win, then the win to nil market represents a good option. West Ham has failed to keep a clean sheet in their last five Premier League matches, while the Blues have shut out their opposition in four of their last five on the road. Chelsea has also conceded just two away goals in six top-flight matches during this campaign. Given the Hammers lack of clean sheets and Chelsea’s defensive solidity, there is additional value on backing 39/19 odds, provided by 10Bet, for a Blues’ win to nil.
Anytime Goalscorer Betting Tips
As West Ham’s last seven goals have been scored by a separate goalscorer, or by an own goal, and given that a Blues shut out is likely, there is little value on backing a Hammer to net in this tie. However, there are some good picks among the Chelsea ranks. Romelu Lukaku has returned to fitness in recent weeks, and Chelsea’s talisman could start in East London. The Belgian striker is backed at 33/20 by MansionBet for an anytime goal. However, our pick this weekend is Blues midfielder, Mason Mount. The young playmaker returned from injury against Watford and scored the opener at Vicarage Road in mid-week, his fourth goal of the campaign. SBK will provide odds of 33/10 for another Mount goal this weekend.
West Ham and Chelsea always has the potential to provide a bit of tension and draw. With Chelsea wanting to maintain the top spot, and West Ham clinging on to fourth place, there could be an extra bite to this London derby on Saturday.
