All the odds for Chelsea

Ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League meeting with Chelsea, here's what on offer from JAXX, the club's official online sports betting partner ...

It is a big eight days for West Ham United. Chelsea are the visitors to the Boleyn Ground on Saturday, then the clubs have two tough away games - at Liverpool on Wednesday, followed by another London derby with Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Sunday week. Those results could go a long way to determining if European football next season is a realistic possibility. The top four go into the Champions League, and the fifth-placed side head into the UEFA Cup. As Carling Cup winners, Tottenham are already in the UEFA Cup, and the FA Cup winners also go into that competition.

The final position that is guaranteed UEFA Cup football depends on how Manchester United and Chelsea get on in the FA Cup and how Tottenham do in the league. Presently, only fifth place is guaranteed UEFA Cup football. If Manchester United and Chelsea meet in the FA Cup final, then one of the UEFA Cup spots is taken by the next team in the league (i.e. sixth). However, if Tottenham finish in one of these positions, then the UEFA Cup spot is given to the next team in the league.

So, theoretically, the seventh-placed team can still qualify for the UEFA Cup, depending on how things go. It's not going to be easy for the Hammers with 6/1 on offer that West Ham United finish in the top six. It's 7/4 that West Ham United jump two places by season's end and finish in a very creditable eighth place.

A victory against Chelsea would keep the Hammers eight or more points above Tottenham and also put an almighty dent into the Blues' title chances. Following last week's victory at Fulham, the odds have shortened on West Ham United finishing in front of Tottenham in the league. Jaxx go 11/20 that the Hammers maintain their advantage, while Spurs are 23/20 to be in front by the end of the season.

Remember, JAXX offer a plethora of markets for every West Ham United game, including first and last goal-scorers.
