When Slaven Bilić took the manager spot at Boleyn Ground many were sceptical, even though the Croat was experienced.

He proved that there was no reason to worry as he led the club to the 7th position and a record of 62 points. The team looks pretty compact and they played particularly well against teams that were rated better on paper.

Last season proved that anything is possible in football and it is clear that a lot of the fans of the Hammers are eagerly expecting the new season with a grate dose of self-confidence. The 2016/17 season is ahead of us and it is almost certain that there will be even more bets on Premier League matches than last year.

It has been suggested that following Leicester’s title win an increasing number of fans will place wagers on their favourite clubs, even if they are considered underdogs. Football fans all over the country are inspired by pundits who won thousands after placing small bets on Leicester winning the title.

Chelsea vs. West Ham

West Ham fans that believe in the success of their club will surely like to place a wager of two, even before the beginning of the season. West Ham will play their first match of the new season against Chelsea on Stanford, on Monday, August 15. Chelsea are considered to be favourites, but that doesn’t mean that West Ham don’t stand a chance.

The odds for the Claret and Blue to win the match are set at 9/2, but with some bookmakers you will find odds as high as 53/10. With £10 you can win a nice amount of £63. If you think that the match will end in a draw, you can get odds at 3/1, which means that you could win £30 with a £10 bet.

If you think that both teams will manage to score then you can get a pound for every wagered pound and the case is similar if you think that they won’t as the odds for that are 10/11.

The odds for a West Ham win of 1-0 are 16 at some bookies and odds as low as 12 are offered by other. The likelihood of West Ham winning 2-0 is calculated at 35 to 1, whereas the odds for a 3-0 win are 125.

You can get £100 with a £10 bet if West Ham both lead at halftime and win in the end, whereas the ‘Draw No Bet’ odds for West Ham are 15/4.

The odds for West Ham to win at nil are 17/2 and 11/2 are the odds for West Ham to score in each half. A bet that West Ham will win and there will be a total of more than 3.5 goals will bring £25 for every wagered pound.

West Ham to Win the League

The dream of every West Ham fan is for their club to win the Premier League and the most optimistic ones might place a bet. You may get odds as high as 80 if you believe that West Ham will win the league. Bet365, SkyBet, Coral, Betfred and several other bookies offer those odds.

Ladbrokes and William Hill offer odds at 66. It seems that the bookies that it is more likely for West Ham to get relegated than to win the league, as the odds for West Ham to get relegated are 33 at some bookies, whereas Coral and Betway offer odds as low as 25. But betting that West Ham will stay up won’t bring you a lot of money as the odds for that are 1/100 or 1/80.

Top Scorer

Betting that Andy Carroll will be the top goal-scorer is pretty lucrative if you believe that he actually stands a chance. You will win at least £66 with a £1 and some bookies offer odds at 80 and even 94. The odds for Dimitri Payet are at 100 at many bookies and so are the odds for Ener Valencia.

Other Bets

The best odds for West Ham to finish in the top 4 are 9, although some bookies offer odds at 7 or 8. Slaven Bilić has equal chances as Ranieri and Benitez to be named LMA manager of the year. The odds for that are 20.

The odds for West Ham to win their first 3 games are 66. There are a lot of options and some bookies offer quite favourable odds if you think of betting on West Ham for the upcoming season.
