West Ham have been installed as strong favourites to seal their return to the top flight by beating Blackpool in the Championship play-off final.
The Hammers shrugged off the disappointment of missing out on automatic promotion by thumping Cardiff 5-0 on aggregate to seal their place at Wembley.
Sam Allardyce’s men are available at 57/100 to prevail by any means necessary in the ‘world’s richest game of football’ on May 19th.
West Ham are also priced up at 19/20 to triumph inside 90 minutes, which looks like a solid play considering they smashed eight goals past the Seasiders in the two regular-season meetings between the sides.
In other words, punters using their free £25 bet for registering with bwin to back the Hammers to win without the need for extra-time and/or penalties will pocket £48.75 if successful.
Like West Ham, Blackpool are looking to return to the Premier League at the first time of asking, having survived a late comeback by Birmingham City in their semi-final.
Leading 1-0 from the first leg, Ian Holloway’s men looked to be cruising through as Stephen Dobbie and Matt Phillips struck to silence an expectant St Andrews crowd.
However, Nikola Zigic and a late Curtis Davies strike restored parity for Blues on the night to set up a frantic final few minutes – but the Tangerines managed to hold on for a 3-2 aggregate triumph.
Having beaten Cardiff in the 2010 play-off final, Blackpool will be quietly confident about repeating the trick against the Hammers and they are at 13/10 to secure promotion.
Alternatively, they can be backed at a lengthy-looking 11/4 to win in normal time, while the draw is on offer at 23/10 for punters who expect the extra 30 minutes to be required.
Either way, both teams have plenty of attacking weapons at their disposal and they should serve up a fitting finale to what has been another enthralling Championship season.
