Betting Tip: West Ham +1.00 @ 13/10 with bet365

So Manchester City are a best price 8/11 for Saturday night’s clash at Upton Park, with the Premier League title favourites hoping to string a winning run together which will see off Arsenal and Leicester.

There will undoubtedly be plenty of punters backing the Citizens at these odds although a look at the league table suggests it’s not a great value price.

Manchester City have won 40% of their away games this season in the Premier League. They have also managed just a goal per match on average, with West Ham more than capable of taking scalps in front of their own fans.

Slaven Bilic’s side are only eight points worse off in the table, with Dimitri Payet back for the Hammers and 9/2 about the home win seems like a stonking price.

West Ham have only lost two of their ten matches on home soil, with Payet making them more of a menace going forward.

Sam Byram has just arrived at the London club and the former Leeds full-back means that the Hammers have him and Aaron Cresswell bombing forward to support the other players.

Sergio Aguero is clearly hitting form after an injury-hit season although Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling have shown themselves to be more effective at the Etihad Stadium than on their travels.

Then there’s the gaping hole left by Vincent Kompany in central defence and it’s away from home that this is particularly telling. Get with the Hammers to claim at least a draw here.
