Chelsea betting preview with Betway

Get all the odds for Saturday's game with our Principal Partners Betway
West Ham United are looking for their second home win of the Premier League season and in the process trying to extend their unbeaten league run to seven matches. That form has taken Slaven Bili?’s side into the Champions League spots at this early stage of the season, but history tells us that a game against Chelsea is the ultimate test. The Hammers have just one win in 18 matches against their west London rivals, but have a great chance of making that two in 19. Jose Mourinho’s side arrive at the Boleyn Ground in 12th place in the table with just three wins since the start of the season.
 
The prices reflect Chelsea’s dominance of the fixture in recent years, with an away win listed as favourite at 19/20. But even co-chairman David Sullivan has hinted that us bookies might have got this one wrong. Speaking to the Evening Standard  in midweek, Sullivan said “Chelsea are odds-on, but the odds on us are generous with Chelsea travelling to Ukraine to play in the Champions League.” Those “generous” odds are currently 11/4 with Betway, and the draw is listed at 13/5.
 
West Ham United’s last win in this fixture came in December 2012 when the Blues were sent back to the other side of London with a 3-1 beating. A repeat of that scoreline is priced at a huge 25/1. A 1-0 home win is offered at a more realistic 11/1. The favourite on the ‘Correct Score’ market is 1-1 draw at 13/2. Both of last season’s games resulted in a Chelsea win and clean-sheet – which is offered at 23/10.
 
The Hammers were on song in their most recent London derby last week and goalscorers from that game feature heavily in a few popular markets. The ‘First Goalscorer’ list has Manuel Lanzini and Dimitri Payet at 11/1 and 9/1 respectively to break the deadlock. Let’s not also forget the goalscoring form of full-back Carl Jenkinson – he is offered at a generous 11/1 to score at any time in the game.
