West Ham are one of those clubs in the middle of the Premier League table who shouldn’t be threatened by relegation but have very little chance of making a big breakthrough into the top six.
The Claret and Blue Army understand the position their club is in and just want a team they can be proud of. That means playing attractive football – the fabled ‘West Ham way’ – and winning big matches, especially at home.
In Manuel Pellegrini, West Ham have a manager capable of bringing the good times back to East London. The Chillean has many exciting players to choose from but how far can he take them this season?
West Ham Premier League Betting Odds
You can never say never in football but anybody backing West Ham to win the Premier League at a price of 500/1 is doing so with their heart over their head. The Irons should be clear of any relegation worries and are understandably priced at 14/1.
West Ham Outright Betting Odds
The big betting opportunity for West Ham is in the betting without the top six. It would take their best season for a long time and then some to break into the top six but they do have a shout of finishing above the likes of Leicester, Wolves, Everton and Watford at a generous 11/1.

West Ham Tips and Predictions
If you’re looking for a way to bet on West Ham this season but don’t fancy them to finish seventh, it could pay to back them in a series of head to head markets. Betting on West Ham to finish ahead of Everton could be one good option, likewise to finish ahead of Watford.
A top half finish would be a very good finish for West Ham in the league. Their fans would also dearly love a run through to the latter stages of either the FA Cup or League Cup.
