Leeds 12/10

Draw 27/10

West Ham 21/10

Suggested Bet:  The draw at 27/10

This looks like being a tight encounter, but I can certainly see goals coming at both ends.  For interest both teams to score is priced at 5/10 and over 2.5 goals at 11/20, just a bit short for my pocket.  If I were to bet on a correct score here I like 2-2 at 39/4 and if you are looking for a larger price Patrick Bamford should give you a run for your money in the First Goal Scorer Market currently priced as a 9/2 favorite.
