Gianfranco Zola's reign as the 12th manager in West Ham United's history starts with a tricky test against managerless Newcastle United.
The Hammers have won both their Barclays Premier League games at the Boleyn Ground this season, rewarding punters who backed them at 7/5 (to beat Blackburn Rovers) and 9/10 (to beat Wigan Athletic) with JAXX.
Zola's side are 20/23 to beat Newcastle for the first time in ten meetings. The Magpies, who lost 2-1 at home to Hull City last weekend, are 12/5 to earn their third victory in four meetings at the Boleyn Ground. The draw, which has occurred in this corresponding fixture on two of the last four occasions, is available at 23/10.
There are invariably goals in games between the two sides. No less than nine of the last eleven meetings have produced more than two goals, so that might be worth thinking about since JAXX offer 17/20 that there will be more than 2.5 goals in the game in total. Put simply, if you have a successful £20 bet on that result, your return would be £37. It is 3/4 that there will be two goals or fewer scored.
West Ham United have been in front at the break in both Premier League victories this season and JAXX offer 9/5 for them to be leading the Magpies at the interval again. The Hammers have been in front in four of the last eight meetings with Newcastle at the Boleyn Ground.
Backing Newcastle to score the first goal or the last goal in this corresponding fixture would have proved very profitable in the last four seasons. The Hammers have scored the first goal just once, while Newcastle have scored the last goal of the game on the last four visits. The odds for the Hammers to score first are 17/20 and to score last are 7/10.
If you fancy West Ham United to score at any time, JAXX offer 3/10. If you think that Newcastle will keep a clean sheet, back them at 19/10.
JAXX offer half-time/full-time betting. The one result that has not occurred in the last eight meetings in east London is for Newcastle to be leading at half-time and drawing at the final whistle. It is 12/1 against it happening this weekend.
