Boylesports: Double Bubble

888sport’s betting expert, Ed Nicholson, on how the bookies see West Ham’s clash with Derby County …

 

You lot should be happy Hammers! A 2-1 win at Coventry, having come from behind, should put a spring in the step of the fans heading to Upton Park tomorrow for the evening kick-off against Derby County. 888sport has the Hammers as favourites at a best industry price of 4/9. Derby are 15/2 to win and the draw is 3/1.

 

The ‘Sam Allardyce mantra’ has taken effect as West Ham have managed a joint-league-high eight clean sheets this campaign. 888sport has another clean sheet for Allardyce’s men tomorrow at 10/11.

 

The formbook doesn’t make good reading for Derby. The Rams have only won one of their last 19 trips to Upton Park in all competitions. That win came back in 2005.

 

The Hammers boast an impressive head-to-head record. They’ve won both of their last two league meetings with Derby, in the Premier League in 2007/08, netting seven and conceding just one.

 

888sport are offering a double of Sam Baldock to score and West Ham to win at 6/4. Baldock has scored four goals in his last three home league appearances for West Ham, so that might be well worth a flutter.

Our top tip for West Ham v Derby on Saturday 26th November (17:20) is for West Ham to win the match outright.

We apologise for the lack of creativity in our latest top tip but there aren't that many stand out picks on this match.

The odds are a little shorter than we hoped they'd be, with Boylesports offering best odds of 1.44 on an outright Hammers win. Still, better a 1.44 winner than a 2.5 loser.

Derby have lost their last 3 matches and are on a terrible run which has seen them win just 1 of their last 9 Championship games. Derby have also failed to find the net in 3 of their last 5 matches.

West Ham on the other hand are on a really good run of form which has seen them win 4 of their last 5 league games. The Hammers have conceded a total of just 1 goal in their last 3 and kept 3 clean sheets in their last 5.

The bookies have West Ham as huge favourites to win this game, let's hope they're right.

Boylesports are offering the best odds on this tip at 1.44.

  Here's a look at some of the popular betting markets for West Ham v Derby on Saturday 26th November (17:20).

west ham v derbyIt's hard to get too excited at odds of just 1.44 with Boylesports for a West Ham win on Saturday so it could be worth looking elsewhere for some value on this match.

With the Hammers already keeping 8 clean sheets this season and 3 in their last 5, it's definitely worth considering West Ham to win to nil at 2.4 with Blue Square. Derby have failed to score in 3 of their last 5 league matches and will be without their 3 leading strikers Theo Robinson, Steve Davies and Nathan Tyson who are all missing through injury.

If the bookies are right in making the Hammers such strong favourites to win this game then it might also be worth backing West Ham/West Ham in the half time/full time market at 2.15 with Stan James. In 4 of Derby's last 5 defeats the Rams have trailed at half time.

Below is a list of some of the popular betting markets for West Ham's live match with Derby this weekend. Good luck.

   Here's a look at the first and last goal scorer prices for West Ham v Derby on Saturday 26th November (17:20). 

With the Hammers at such a short price to win this game at just 1.44 with Skybet, it could be worth while looking at the first goalscorer market for some better value picks. 

Carlton ColeCarlton Cole has impressed off the bench in the last couple of West Ham games and Big Sam's suggested he's in with a very good chance of starting Saturday's live match. Cole is the bookies' favourite to grab the first goal against Derby with Stan James currently offering best odds of 5.5.

Matt Taylor is expected to return from injury for this game. Boylesports have odds of 12/1 on Taylor scoring first while penalty taker Mark Noble will be looking to add to his 2 goals this season. Both Noble's goals have been penalties at Upton Park and Skybet are offering 11/1 on Noble grabbing the first goal on Saturday.

Derby will be without their 3 main strikers Theo Robinson, Steve Davies and Nathan Tyson for the trip to Upton Park. The Rams' injury crisis up front has led Nigel Clough to bring in Tamas Priskin on loan from Ipswich. Priskin can be backed at 9/1 with Skybet to mark his debut with the opening goal.
