What Trueform says for West Ham vs Chelsea

West Ham have shown signs of improvement under David Moyes, but they are still lagging well behind Premier League champions Chelsea on our Trueform chart.

Antonio Conte’s side have picked up 19 points out of the last 21 available in this competition and are also safely through in the Champions League.

The Blues beat the Hammers 2-1 in both league meetings last season and we like 7/1 for a repeat of that scoreline in our West Ham vs Chelsea betting predictions.

A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds

West Ham have only secured one point from four games since Moyes replaced Slaven Bilic, via a 1-1 draw with Leicester at this venue.

However, the Scot will have taken plenty of encouragement from United’s third straight away defeat, when pushing Manchester City all the way at the Etihad Stadium.

Angelo Ogbonna headed the Hammers in front just before half-time, but the runaway leaders rallied in the second period and snatched victory with seven minutes left on the clock.

That result left West Ham second from bottom, but Moyes declared: “I always think we will get away. I don’t think we will be in trouble.

“I think we have a good team, good players. I thought this performance gives us hope it can be done.”

The Hammers have failed to hit the target only once in seven home games this term, but keeping Chelsea out will be another tough task.

Looking at the West Ham vs Chelsea odds, 12/5 for an away win and both teams to score takes the eye.

A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds

Chelsea have secured six wins and a draw at Liverpool from their last seven Premier League games after coming from behind to beat Newcastle 3-1.

Eden Hazard has looked back to his mercurial best of late and bagged a brace against the Magpies, with star striker Alvaro Morata also netting for the 10th time this term.

It was then Hazard’s run that forced Stefan Savic to turn the ball into his own net during Tuesday’s 1-1 Champions League draw with Atletico Madrid and he is sure to challenge West Ham’s sometimes flat-footed defence.

We’re finishing off our West Ham vs Chelsea betting tips with a 22/1 scorecast on Hazard to score first in a 2-1 win for the Blues.
