MANCHESTER UNITED v WEST HAM
Manchester United are coming off a disappointing 3-1 FA Cup semi-final loss to Chelsea, but their League form has been excellent and sitting in 5th place they are very much in the hunt for a Top 4 or even a Top 3 finish. They have played 7 matches since returning from the COVID-19 break, dropping just 4 points in that time with 5 wins and 2 draws. Their last home game was a 2-2 draw to Southampton, prior to that they beat Bournemouth by 3 and Sheffield United by 3 goals.
West Ham are coming off back-to-back victories over Norwich away and Watford at home and that has ensured their EPL survival. They have won 4 out of 18 away matches this season.
Looking at the head-to-head clashes between the sides West Ham beat United 2-0 at home earlier in the season, but last time the sides met at Old Trafford it was United who came out victors 2-1.

Manchester United 1/4
West Ham 10/1
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Manchester United (-2) at 31/20
For this bet to arrive I need Manchester United to win by 3 goals or more and while it might seem a big order they have won 2 of their last 3 home games by those margins and they face a West Ham side that will consider its job to be done and may well step off the gas.
