West Ham’s opening game of the 2017/2018 Premier League season didn’t particularly go to plan.
After making four signings to improve the first team, including the £16m capture of Javier Hernandez, Slaven Bilic’s side failed to put up a fight at Old Trafford against Manchester United and headed back to London having lost 4-0.
The Hammers’ odds of relegation were relatively long given their disappointing 16/17 campaign but now, with them propping up the league table after just one game, punters can get the Hammers to go down at a tempting 13/2 with Sky Bet.. They’re also a very tempting 25/1 to end the season bottom of the Premier League.
A punt like that with Sky Bet is a tempting one, particularly if you enjoying use the SkyBet mobile app for 2017 to cash out bets.
It’s still early days, though, and mobile app gamblers especially will be keeping a close eye on what West Ham do over the remaining two weeks of the summer transfer window and their immediate fixtures afterwards.
Slaven Bilic will be keen to improve his midfield options after his side were too easily dominated in the middle of the park at Old Trafford, and it’s looking increasingly likely that he’ll be bringing the highly-rated William Carvalho to East London in the coming week.
If Bilic can improve his squad with a couple more additions before the end of August, West Ham’s prosepcts will undoubtedly improve.
With that in mind, SkyBet’s odds of 13/8 for West Ham to finish in the top half of the Premier League looks good value. If you’re confident the Hammers can heavily improve between now and the end of the season, perhaps a 16/1 punt on them to finish in the top six will catch your eye.
Either way, sports betting enthusiasts and mobile gamblers will certainly be keeping a close on the Hammers over the coming weeks and months, as there’s loads of value to be had at both ends of the market.
