Last week we had a 20/1 winner in Mark Noble scoring the last goal and he was also recommended at 13/2 to score anytime.

For once in a long time we can look forward to Saturday’s game versus Newcastle United with some confidence after a spirited win with 10 men against Cardiff. The stats against Newcastle don’t look too bad – with us winning six, drawing five and losing six out of the last 17 games…

Recent history v Newcastle

Correct Score

As the stats show, there is a history of goals in our recent games, and a 2-1 win for the Hammers looks a great bet at 9/, while a 2-2 draw at 11/1 is also inviting.

There are many unusual bets out there ,and West Ham can be backed at 9/2 to win to nil. Another of the unusual bets available is West Ham to score a penalty at 17/2, and we know that if one is awarded Mark Noble has a great record in converting them.

Correct score stats v. Newcastle

First & Last Goal Scorer

After seeing Mark Noble covering every blade of grass last week in a man of the match performance, and capping it off with a late goal, it doesn’t look like the bookies have taken much notice, as he can be got at 18/1 to score first or last goal.

And after having him recommended at 20/1 last week, we are not going to abandon him now. Noble can also be got at 13/2 to score anytime. The added bonus of seeing Andy Carroll return for 20 minutes means we will probably see him again at some stage in the second half. He can be got at 13/2 for last goal if anyone fancies taking a chance…

First & last goal scorer stats v Newcastle

This weeks recommended bets are one of the following…

  • Mark Noble first or last goal scorer at 18/1
  • Mark Noble anytime scorer at 13/2
  • Andy Carroll last goal scorer at 13/2

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