As we enter the final stages of the 2000/21 Premier League season, we’ve another crucial clash in the race for a ‘top four’ place as West Ham entertain Everton on Sunday 9th May.

West Ham start this round of games in fifth with 58 points, while Everton, who have a game in-hand still, are on 52 points and back in 8th – therefore, it’s obvious to see just how valuable a win for either side will be.

The match betting suggests a tight game too, with West Ham at 2.30, the draw 3.40 and Everton at 3.00.

They met earlier this season at Goodison Park and that ended in a 0-1 away win for the Hammers, while this repeat fixture last season finished in a 1-1 draw – a repeat of that scoreline can be backed at 7.00.

In fact, the draw has been a popular outcome when these teams face-off – 3 of the last 5 repeat fixtures have ended all-square, while 33% of the last 15 meetings have also ended in stalemates.

Everton fans will gain plenty of hope, however, from knowing that they are unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 away league games at West Ham, so the Draw/Everton option in the ‘Double Chance’ market might appeal at 1.57.

The Toffeeman have also lost only 4 of their last 29 games against the Hammers in all competitions and have only failed to score against them twice in the last 30 meetings.

With 4 of the last 5 head-to-heads seeing UNDER 2.5 GOALS, then this is another option at 1.90 to have on your radar.

Looking at the scoring markets, West Ham’s Jesse Lingard has been a great loan signing for the Hammers and is on offer at 5.00 (1st) or 2.25 (anytime), while Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin is their shortest-priced player at 7.00 (1st) or 2.87 (anytime).

Overall, it’s a game that the draw will probably give you a good run for your money, but with Everton’s decent away record at the West Ham – don’t forget they’ve only lost one of their last 12 – then the 1.57 on an Everton win or a draw in the ‘Double Chance’ market is how we are going to approach this game.
