West Ham will be at home this weekend as Dmitri Payet and his team host a Sunderland side who are fighting for relegation. Although in the past this game has been well contest, I think this time around it might be very one sided. One team here is playing a lot better than the other and that team is West Ham who will also have the added advantage of being at home so I think we might get a very one sided result here.
West Ham are playing as well as I have seen them play all season and I think that they will only get better so heading into this match I have high hopes. This team is pretty solid at the back but the attacking front is just way too dangerous with the likes of Payet, Valencia and Carroll all in terrific form. I think we can expect a lot of goals here since Sunderland are pretty weak at the back and this will cost them against a team like the Hammers.
Sunderland on the other hand might just know that they are outclassed here. That being said, I have seen them pull of some amazing performances when I don’t expect them to but I doubt that they will do it here against a determined West Ham. This team is almost destined to get relegated and although it is not all over yet, I don’t see them doing well enough here.
West Ham will win here and I think that taking the outright result is not paying well enough. Betting the handicap is an option but I find in EPL that this way to gambling leads to problems so I shall also avoid that and put my money on the goal line. West Ham are up against a poor defence and I expect them to stack on the goals so the above 2.5 goals is the best bet I see here so that is where my money will be.
