Chelsea 3/5 to beat West Ham in Wednesday’s Premier League matchup
Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea win
Odds: 3/5 @ Bet 365
With a golden chance to extend on their recent run of form, Chelsea will make the trip to a struggling West Ham on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on what has been a woeful run of form, West Ham are still at the heart of a relegation battle. In their 31 Premier League games this season, they have recorded seven wins, six draws, and 18 defeats, scoring 35 and conceding 54 in return. With a points tally of 27 and only their goal difference keeping them out of the bottom-three, it should also be noted that the Hammers hold the fourth-worst defensive record in the division. As for their previous run of results, West Ham have lost their last three top-flight matches on the bounce and have failed to score a single goal in any of those three losses. More worrying, Wednesday’s hosts have managed to win just one of their last 13 matches across all formats, losing nine of those appearances.
As for the visitors, continuing on a stellar run of form either side of the break, Chelsea find themselves enjoying a real purple patch. In their 31 Premier League games this season, they have recorded 16 wins, six draws, and nine defeats, scoring 55 and conceding 41 in return. With a points tally of 54, the Blues open the midweek fixtures in fourth and sat just a single point behind Leicester in third. As for their previous run of results, Chelsea have won their last five consecutive matches across all formats and have lost just one of their previous nine matches on the road. Given the huge gulf in class, we’re backing an away victory in midweek.
