What a week to be a West Ham supporter. Two cup losses and 11 goals scored against us and still an injury list as long as an A&E department on a Sunday morning.

And now a real six pointer against fellow strugglers Cardiff City. But the stats aren’t looking too good after recent weeks…

Correct score

West Ham have only won 10% of their last 20 away games. We have drawn 25% of our last games, and this could be our best result of a winning bet and at a best price of 8/1, a 1-1 draw could prove profitable.

First & Last Goal scorer

We should get a good price, with bookies mainly guessing our starting XI at this stage. It’s going to be a tight game with plenty of nerves and it looks possible a penalty could easily be awarded.

That’s why we are pinning our hopes on Mark Noble, who has probably being one of the only players who has played with credit. He is 20/1 for first or last goalscorer and that could look a great bet by 4.45pm Saturday. Noble is also 15/2 to score anytime.

This weeks recommended bets take one from the following…

  • Mark Noble first or last goal scorer @ 20/1
  • Mark Noble anytime scorer @ 15/2
  • Draw 1-1 @ 8/1

Remember, don’t let the Claret & Blue heart rule the head, it’s a long season.
