Ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League meeting with Derby County, here's what on offer from JAXX, the club's official online sports betting partner ....
West Ham United have scored nine goals in their last two games against Derby County and after the Rams conceded six at home to Aston Villa last weekend, Alan Curbishley will hope that the visitors' aversion to claret and blue will continue.
Derby are already planning for next season's campaign in the Championship, while Curbishley is looking to give some of West Ham United's bright young stars an opportunity or two - and that's great to see. United won 5-0 at Pride Park in November - their biggest win of the season thus far. They have a great record against Derby County, having lost just twice in their last 13 Barclays Premier League meetings, both of them coming away from the Boleyn Ground. Five of those games finished in a draw.
Derby are on offer at 17/2 to earn their second to-flight victory of the season. They have yet to win away from home and have taken just three points from their 17 away games this term. Despite West Ham United's indifferent form of late, they are considered heavy favourites to hand Derby their 26th defeat of the season. United are on offer at 7/20, while the draw is available at 13/4.
Backing West Ham United to win by two clear goals might be a better option for some. They are on offer at 4/5 on the handicap, meaning a successful £50 bet on that outcome would produce a return of £90. Derby have not been in particularly bad form of late. Prior to their 6-0 defeat by Aston Villa, Paul Jewell's men had lost three games by a single goal (Manchester United, Middlesbrough and Everton) and earned a 2-2 draw with Fulham.
There might be some value in the half-time/full-time markets. West Ham United have come from behind at half-time to win the match on one occasion this season - when Manchester United were in front at Upton Park in November and second-half goals from Anton Ferdinand and Matthew Upson ensured a 2-1 victory. The odds for Derby to be leading at the interval and West Ham United to ultimately win the match are 29/1 - a successful £20 bet on that outcome would produce a return of £600.
Don't forget, JAXX offer several markets for every West Ham United game, including a number of exclusive Season Specials. West Ham United currently have 44 points with four games remaining (three of them at home). JAXX offer 3/4 that the Hammers gain 50 points or more, and it is 17/20 that they get 49 points or less. The Hammers are 7/10 to finish above Tottenham in the season-long match bet. Spurs are three points behind going into the weekend. Spurs are 9/10 to finish in front of the Hammers.
