Sunderland vs West Ham: Hammers to put another nail in coffin

Sunderland vs West Ham: Hammers to put another nail in coffin

Kick Off: 1500. 15/04/2017

Stadium: Stadium of Light

West Ham may feel they are almost safe after beating Swansea last weekend while Sunderland are almost certainly heading for the drop.

Their fates may be pretty much sealed if West Ham return from the Stadium of Light with all three points, and their confidence was boosted by last week’s much-needed win.

Put simply, Sunderland are the worst team in the division so West Ham to win has to be one of our predictions in the Sunderland vs West Ham betting at odds of 23/20.

A Look At Sunderland’s Betting Odds

Sunderland are heading for the Championship without much of a fight, having now lost 21 of their 31 matches.

Losing to Manchester United last weekend was understandable but they have now gone 11 hours and 15 minutes without a Premier League goal.

With that in mind, West Ham to win to nil at odds of 14/5 has obvious appeal.

A Look At West Ham’s Betting Odds

West Ham eased their relegation worries by beating Swansea last Saturday but it was far from a convincing performance, even if they stopped the rot after four straight defeats.

Swansea boss Paul Clement admitted it was “a poor game, lacking in quality, two teams playing with a lot of anxiety”. West Ham will see this fixture as one they should win but their nerves could again be a factor.

If they are to edge it, we think West Ham to win by one goal is the best bet at 29/10. For longer odds, back West Ham to beat Sunderland 1-0 at 29/4.
