888sport has a great welcome offer for new customers giving treble odds on their first bet placed, which is ideal for this Monday’s Premier League clash between West Ham United and Newcastle United.
West Ham have two wins and two defeats from their opening four 2015/16 Premier League fixtures, but they’re still awaiting their first home win of the season - after going down 1-2 to Leicester and then 3-4 in a remarkable game against Bournemouth.
What is even more remarkable for the Hammers is that those two results were sandwiched between an opening day win over Arsenal at the Emirates and a fantastic 3-0 victory at Liverpool last time out. Slaven Bilic will surely hope that his side can begin to reproduce their stunning away performances on home soil.
This clash will surely bring back bad memories for Newcastle boss Steve McClaren - after Bilic’s Croatia side completed a 3-2 win over England back in 2007, to prevent the home side from qualifying for Euro 2008 and earning McClaren the infamous “Wally with the brolly” nickname.
McClaren’s Magpies are yet to pick up three points so far this season, but they have been slightly unlucky to have faced four of last season’s top eight sides in their opening encounters so far.
After picking up draws against Southampton and Manchester United - coupled with defeats to Swansea and Arsenal - the Geordies have shown they can compete with the better sides in the division on their day, but need to become more consistent if they are to start picking up the results they need to pull away from the relegation places.
Newcastle hold the advantage of 48 wins in the previous 122 meetings between the two sides, with West Ham registering 39 victories and a further 35 draws being played out between the pair. However, all bar nine of those Hammers wins have come at home - as the Magpies have only 16 wins from 61 games when playing away in this fixture.
Aaron Cresswell’s winner in this fixture last season gave West Ham their first win over Newcastle since September 2008. The Magpies were able to gain revenge on the final day of the season though - as their 2-0 win at St James’ Park helped them to narrowly escape relegation and ensure their Premier League status for another season, at the expense of Hull City.
West Ham United to win is 6/5 on 888sport, but the bookmaker is enhancing those odds to around 7/2 with treble odds (3.85 to be exact.) A Newcastle win at the Boleyn Ground is boosted to 39/5 from the normal odds of 49/20, while the draw will pay better at 15/2 when the price is tripled.
Open an account with 888sport and you will get treble odds on your first bet, up to £10 maximum stake.
You’d be crazy to let the offer pass if you don’t have an account with 888sport and the great thing about this treble odds offer is that all the winnings will be paid in cash, which means it can be withdrawn straight away and there is no obligation to make another bet with the extra winnings like some other enhanced odds offers.
The offer applies to any sport and 888sport has an extensive choice with thousands of markets on over 20 different sports. However, it’s this Premier League clash that will create most interest this Monday evening - as West Ham and Newcastle do battle for an all-important three points.
