As we head into the final matchday of the 2022/23 Premier League season the big focus – with Man City having already won the league – will be on the relegation battle.

Southampton are already down, but it’s between three sides for the other two places – Leicester, Everton and Leeds.

The first-named of that trio – Leicester City – face West Ham on Sunday and being 2 points behind Everton they will need all three points to overtake them. Plus, then also hope Everton lose to Bournemouth.

West Ham are safe and have a Europa Conference Final to look forward to so it remains to be seen how ‘up for this’ game they will be.

That said, the players will want to impress to make that final squad.

The match betting sees Leicester at 19/20, with the draw 14/5 and West Ham at 5/2.

The Foxes will also gain confidence knowing they beat West Ham 0-2 away this season.

That said, West Ham have lost only 1 of their last 5 to Leicester and scored in 11 of their last 12 vs the Foxes.

It’s also a clash that’s produced many goals in recent matchups – with 7 of the last 8 going OVER 2.5 GOALS, and 7 of the last 9 seeing both teams score.

You can back 3+ goals at 4/6, with both teams to score on the table at 8/13.

Finally, it you fancy a dabble in the scoring markets then Antonio for West Ham could be for man. The Hammers striker has scored 3 times in the last 5 head-to-heads and is on offer at 9/1 (1st) or 10/3 (anytime) – but team news will be crucial here.

Overall, it’s a game that Leicester have to win, but that’s easier said than done and a lot will sit on their star players Maddison and Barnes.

So, the safer option might be to side with both teams to score @ 8/13 in a bet that has paid out in 78% of the last 9 clashes.
