West Ham 6/5 for Top Six finish in Premier League

 

Update: 26.01.22

 

West Ham United lost their grip on their top-four position when they lost 1-0 at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, Marcus Rashford scoring the only goal for the Red Devils in the third minute of stoppage time.

It was huge disappointment for West Ham at the weekend when they dropped out of the top four in the Premier League table following a 1-0 defeat away to Manchester United. With the game poised at 0-0 heading deeper into stoppage time and the likelihood of the spoils being shared, Marcus Rashford scored the winner in the dying seconds to send his side above the Hammers in the league table.

This was West Ham’s second successive defeat following a 3-2 reversal at home to Leeds United the previous weekend and they now sit a single point outside the top four having played one game more than Ralf Rangnick’s men.

Nothing can take away from the fact that the Hammers have enjoyed an excellent season thus far and they remain very much in the hunt for either a Champions League or Europa League berth at the end of the season. In all honesty the latter is looking far more likely, the leading bookmakers going 6/5 that David Moyes’ men finish in the top six this term. As far as a top-four finish is concerned, the odds on the Hammers achieving this aim has lengthened from 15/2 to 10/1 over the past week while they are now way out at 500/1 for a top-two finish to the campaign.

Elsewhere in domestic competition, West Ham are a 14/1 punt to win this season’s FA Cup while on the European duty they remain one of the favourites to win the Europa League trophy at odds of 12/1.

 


 

Update: 19.01.22

West Ham slipped up in their pursuit of a top four finish to the season when they lost 3-2 at home to Leeds United on Sunday, however the Hammers still sit in fourth position as we head closer  towards the business end of the campaign.

On the whole, West Ham have been something of a mixed bag for much of the season although they have done enough to lift themselves into the top-four of the Premier League. Fifth-placed Arsenal do enjoy two games-in-hand over the Hammers and sixth-placed Spurs have played four games less, however David Moyes’ men are still looking good for a European berth at the end of the campaign.

The leading UK bookmakers are fairly optimistic that West Ham can finish in the top-four with most firms going around 15/2 that this proves to be the case. Nevertheless in order to achieve this ambition they need to put their inconsistencies behind them and embark upon another winning run between now and the end of the season. Realistically, a Top-Six finish is more achievable for the Hammers and this is priced at a general 8/11 with most firms.

For those of a more optimistic nature, the Hammers can be backed at 250/1 to finish in the top two this season while they are way out at 1000/1 to win a Premier League title which is effectively wrapped up by Manchester City.

On the other side of the coin, West Ham are 1/10 not to finish in the top four this season and Evens not to finish the season in the top six.

With regard to European football, West Ham remain one of the fancied sides in the Europa League despite the addition of Borussia Dortmund and Barcelona who dropped down from the Champions League earlier in the campaign. The Hammers made it through to the knockout stages of the competition courtesy of an excellent group campaign and they are as low as 9/1 to go all the way in Europe’s second tier tournament.

West Ham United remain in touch with the top four in the Premier League table thanks to some excellent recent performances and the bookies have one again shortened the odds on them clinching a Champions League berth via a top-four finish. 

West Ham’s top four ambitions received a boost when they edged past Crystal Palace to the tune of 3-2 at Selhurst Park on January 1st. The Hammers went three goals ahead in the first half but the Eagles mounted a late comeback with their two goals coming in the 83rd and 90th minutes, West Ham holding firm to claim another three points.

At the time of writing, West Ham sit just a single point behind fourth-placed Arsenal and going on recent form, it would be no huge surprise were they to break into the top four in the coming weeks. The bookies are certainly optimistic as to their chances of finishing the season in the top four, most firms now going just 5/1 that they achieve this aim.

The bookies have also slashed the odds on the Hammers in numerous other markets, most notably the ‘Top Six’ market where David Moyes’ side are now as low as 8/11. Indeed a top-six finish to the season is well within West Ham’s means and should they proceed through the second half of the season in a similar manner to the first half, we wouldn’t be surprised to see them in the Europa League again or even the Champions League next term.

8/11  – To finish in Top Six

5/1 –  To finish in Top Four

Update: 29.12.21

 

West Ham United have been blowing hot and cold in recent weeks but they remain in the top five of the Premier League table. The big question is, will they stay there until the end of the season?

West Ham ended a disappointing three-game winless run in the Premier League when they thumped Watford to the tune of 4-1 at Vicarage Road last night and David Moyes’ men remain very much in the driving seat for a top-six finish. As things stand the Hammers sit in fifth position in the top-flight after nineteen rounds of fixtures and as such, they are in the driving seat with regard to claiming a Europa League berth via their league placing.

The Hammers have also been flying high in this season’s Europa League and they have successfully negotiated a path into the knockout stages of the competition by finishing top of their group. The Hammers remain one of the favourites to win the competition despite numerous large European sides dropping down from the Champions League, including Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund.

As far as the Premier League is concerned, West Ham are a 10/11 shot to finish the season in the top-six of the Premier League and they are a general 8/1 to finish the campaign in the top four, one position higher than they currently sit after nineteen games. For those of a more optimistic nature, the Hammers can be backed at odds of 225/1 to finish the season in the top two while they are as high as 1000/1 to win the 2021/22 Premier League title.

 

West Ham Best Betting Odds 2021/22

 

10/11 – To finish in Top Six

8/1 –  To finish in Top Four

1000/1 – To finish bottom of Premier League

25/1 –  To win the FA Cup

 


 

Update: 07.12.21

West Ham United are hanging onto their top-four position in the Premier League table and while the likelihood of them breaking into the top-three remains very slim, a Champions League berth certainly isn’t out of the question.

West Ham United have two possible routes into next season’s Champions League, either they can win the Europa league – for which they remain favourites – or they can finish the season in the top-four of the Premier League, a position they currently hold as we approach the mid-way mark of the campaign. On both fronts, the Hammers look very well placed with some excellent performances in the Europa League group stages and similarly impressive showings in the Premier League.

Having dropped points in three successive Premier League outings, Davie Moyes’ men returned to winning ways with a 3-2 win against high-flying Chelsea at the London Stadium, Arthur Masuaku scoring the winner in the 87th minute in bizarre circumstances.

On the back of this much-needed victory, the bookmakers have shortened the odds on the Hammers finishing the season in the Premier League top-four from 5/1 to as low as 3/1. Similarly they have also seen their odds slashed on achieving a top-six finish to the campaign, most bookies now going 4/7 that they achieve this ambition.

On the other side of the coin, West Ham are as high as 500/1 to be relegated this season and 1000/1 to finish at the foot of the table, while in other competitions they are a general 10/1 to win the Europa League, 6/1 to win the League Cup and 25/1 to win the FA Cup this season.

4/7  –  To finish in Top Six

3/1 –  To finish in Top Four

66/1 –  To finish in Top Two

150/1 – To win the Premier League

500/1 – To be relegated to the Championship

1000/1 – To finish bottom of Premier League

10/1 –  To win the Europa League

25/1 –  To win the FA Cup

 


 

Update: 09.11.21

 

West Ham United are a team on fire right now and for the first time since the start of the season, the bookies go odds-on about them finishing the season in the top-six of the Premier League.

The visit of red-hot Liverpool on Sunday was always going to be a tough assignment for the Hammers although while it certainly wasn’t a walk in the park for the home side, they came out of the encounter with flying colours. A 3-2 win over one of the title favourites has naturally resulted in a big shift in the betting markets and David Moyes’ men now find themselves odds-on to finish in the top-six of the Premier League at the end of the season.

On the back of their four-game winning league run, West Ham sit in third position in the Premier League table after eleven rounds of fixtures, Moyes’ side level on points with defending champions Manchester City and just three behind leaders Chelsea at the time of writing. The Hammers are as low as 4/6 for a top-six finish to the 2021/22 campaign and just 4/1 for a top-four finish and a Champions League berth.

Most of the main bookies go 35/1 that the Hammers finish in the top two this term although some firms go as low as 22/1 on this eventuality. While West Ham are unlikely to win the Premier League title, their odds on doing so have been slashed from a general 100/1 to as low as 40/1, a significant shift in anyone’s book.

 

West Ham Best Betting Odds 2021/22

 

4/6  –  To finish in Top Six

4/1 –  To finish in Top Four

35/1 –  To finish in Top Two

100/1 – To win the Premier League

500/1 – To be relegated to the Championship

1000/1 – To finish bottom of Premier League

10/1 –  To win the Europa League

6/1 –  To win the League Cup

25/1 –  To win the FA Cup

 


 

Update: 02.11.21

West Ham’s excellent run continued at the weekend when they thrashed Aston Villa 4-1 at Villa Park and the bookmakers have slashed the odds on the Hammers finishing in the top-six in the Premier League at the end of the season.

West Ham United hauled themselves up to fourth in the Premier League table thanks to a thoroughly impressive 4-1 win away to Aston Villa and many fans are starting to believe that a European berth could be theirs for the asking at the end of the campaign. Indeed while these are clearly early days, West Ham’s performances this season are undeniably impressive and it’s fair to say that they have one of the most balanced squads in the top-flight this term.

Having lost 2-1 at home to Brentford early last month – one of just two defeats across all competitions this term – West Ham have embarked upon a five-game winning run, this including a penalty shoot-out victory over Manchester City in the League Cup last week. Nevertheless the manner in which they disposed of Villa in the West Midlands at the weekend made many sit up and take notice, including the bookmakers who have cut the odds on West Ham in many Premier League betting markets.

The Hammers are now just 6/5 to finish the season in the top-six of the Premier League this season, some firms going as low as Evens that David Moyes’ men achieve this aim. The East Londoners are 6/1 to claim a Champions League berth at the end of the campaign via a top-four finish, while they are priced at 45/1 and  to finish in the top-two and win the Premier League respectively.

Moyes’ men remain favourites to win this season’s Europa League trophy at general odds of 10/1 and following their win over Manchester City in the League Cup last week, the odds on the Hammers winning that competition have been shortened from 20/1 to just 6/1.

Update: 27.10.21

 

Having thumped Genk 3-0 in the Europa League last week, West Ham United continued the momentum when they edged past city rivals Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 on Sunday afternoon.

By their own standards, West Ham United are having an excellent season so far, the Hammers flying high in their Europa League group and currently sitting in fourth position in the Premier League table after nine rounds of fixtures. David Moyes is clearly managing to get the best out of his squad and they are looking well placed for a top-six finish to the season at the very least, even at this early stage of proceedings.

From their nine league outings, the East Londoners have only suffered two defeats along the way, these coming by way of 2-1 scoreline at home to Manchester United and newly-promoted Brentford. They will be in for a tough time in November when they come up against the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City, however the bookmakers are confident that a top–four berth is well within their means.

At the time of writing, West Ham are just 7/4 to finish the season in the top six of the Premier League, these odds shortening from the 5/2 on offer last week. The Hammers are also down from 10/1 to as low as 6/1 to claim a top four berth at the end of the campaign while a top two finish is priced at a general 75/1. For those Hammers fans of a more optimistic nature, the East Londoners can be backed at a general 200/1 to win the 2021/22 Premier League title.

In other competitions, the Hammers are 10/1 favourites to lift the Europa League trophy this season, while they are 20/1 to win the League Cup (ahead of tonight’s meeting with Manchester City) and a general 25/1 to win the FA Cup.

 

West Ham Best Betting Odds 2021/22

 

7/4  –  To finish in Top Six

6/1 –  To finish in Top Four

75/1 –  To finish in Top Two

200/1 – To win the Premier League

150/1 – To be relegated to the Championship

500/1 – To finish bottom of Premier League

10/1 –  To win the Europa League

20/1 –  To win the League Cup

25/1 –  To win the FA Cup

 


 

Update: 21.10.21

 

Having lost 2-1 at home to Brentford in their final outing before the second international break off the campaign, West Ham United returned to action with an excellent 1-0 win over Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday.

West Ham United have enjoyed a solid start to the season and while they have had a few ups and downs along the way, they currently sit in seventh position in the Premier League table, level on points with Manchester United and just three points below defending champions Manchester City. Having suffered only their second league defeat of the season against Brentford before the international break, they bounced back upon their return by taking a maximum points haul at Goodison Park last time out and as such, they are on the right path for a top six finish.

Clearly there’s a lot of the season left to play before the Hammers can start dreaming of a European berth but the bookies have shortened the odds on them achieving this aim. As things stand, the Hammers are now just 5/2 to finish the season in the top-six of the Premier League while they are as low as 8/1 with some firms to finish in the top four, something which would be a massive achievement.

David Moyes’ men are around 50/1 to finish in the top two while the more optimistic fans can back them at 250/1 to win the Premier League title for the very first time.

Having beaten Rapid Vienna at the end of last month, the East Londoners are firm favourites to win the Europa League at general odds of 10/1 while in domestic competition they are 20/1 to win the League Cup and 25/1 to lift the FA Cup.

 

West Ham Best Betting Odds 2021/22

 

5/2  –  To finish in Top Six

10/1 –  To finish in Top Four

50/1 –  To finish in Top Two

250/1 – To win the Premier League

75/1 –  To be relegated to the Championship

200/1 – To finish bottom of Premier League

10/1 –  To win the Europa League

20/1 –  To win the League Cup

25/1 –  To win the FA Cup

 


 

Update: 30.09.21

 

West Ham are still flying high in the top half of the Premier League table and confidence will have been boosted by back-to-back wins away to Manchester United and Leeds United.

Having stormed to the top of the Premier League table in the early stages of the 2021/22 campaign, it was pretty much inconceivable that West Ham United were going to remain in their lofty position for too long, however as things stand they sit just three points adrift of leaders Liverpool. The Hammers have thus far enjoyed a decent campaign by their own inconsistent standards and having edged past Manchester United (0-1) at Old Trafford in the League Cup and Leeds United (1-2) at Elland Road in the league, things are looking rather good for the West Londoners right now.

The Hammers currently sit in seventh position in the Premier League table with their six outings returning three wins, two draws and just a single defeat. A top-six finish to the season is a distinct possibility should they keep up their solid form throughout the season and the bookies go just 5/2 that David Moyes’ men realise this ambition, while the more optimistic Hammers fans can back their side at 14/1 to finish in the top four.

Having already enjoyed life at the top of the league table, albeit very briefly, West Ham are a 200/1 shot to finish in pole position, while they are 55/1 for a top two finish. Relegation is far from everyone’s minds at the London Stadium right now but the more pessimistic can get 79/1 on the Hammers dropping down to the Championship and 500/1 that they finish the season at the foot of the table.

 


 

Update: 23.09.21

West Ham United launched their season in blistering fashion, however they have faltered in recent weeks and have dropped from their lofty position at the top of the Premier League table.

Back-to-back wins over Newcastle United (2-4) and Leicester City (4-1) propelled West Ham to the summit of the Premier League table on account of their excellent goal difference, however they stay at the top was relatively brief and things have slowed down for the Hammers in recent weeks. The midweek 1-0 win at Manchester United in the League Cup was undoubtedly a welcome result but David Moyes’ main objective will be league points and the fact that his men have picked up just two of these in three league games won’t sit too well with the manager.

As things stand, the Hammers sit in eighth position in the Premier League table after five rounds of fixtures and the bookmakers go a general 3/1 that they finish the season in the top-six of the Premier League. The optimistic can back a top-four finish at odds of 14/1 while those whose optimism reaches undreamt of heights can back them to win the Premier League title at odds of 250/1.

Those whose glass is always half empty can back the Hammers to suffer relegation to the Championship at 33/1 while Moyes’ side are a general 150/1 to finish at the bottom of the pile. A top half finish to the season is priced at 1/2 while a bottom half finish is odds-against at 9/4.

Update: 01.09.21

It was disappointment for West Ham United at the weekend when they were forced to a 2-2 draw by Crystal Palace, however David Moyes’ men still sit at the top end of the Premier League table.

West Ham enjoyed an excellent start to the season with convincing wins over Newcastle United (2-4) and Leicester City (4-1), however while they will have been disappointed by their 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace at the weekend, the Hammers are still flying high in the table after three rounds of fixtures.

Moyes’ side clinched themselves a Europa League berth thanks to their top-six finish to the 2020/21 campaign and the Hammers boss will be confident that his side will once again feature at the top end of the table towards the end of the current campaign. They have certainly got things off to a flying start and the two points dropped against the Eagles will be no cause for concern at this early stage of proceedings.

Perhaps the biggest concern for Moyes will be in defence with West Ham conceding more goals (5) than any other side in the top eight of the Premier League, however they have scored more (10) than any other side in the top-flight with the exception of Manchester City. This has certainly made for some thoroughly entertaining games, however the Hammers boss needs to shore things up at the back or this could prove to be their undoing.

As things stand, West Ham are 11/4 to finish in the top-six at the end of the campaign while they are 10/1 to finish in the top four and 40/1 for a top-two finish to the season. The Hammers are a general 150/1 to win the Premier League title and 33/1 to be relegated.

Elsewhere, the Hammers are 25/1 to win the FA Cup, 25/1 to win the League Cup and just 16/1 to win the Europa League this season.

 

West Ham Best Betting Odds 2021/22

 

11/4 –  To finish in Top Six

10/1 –  To finish in Top Four

40/1 –  To finish in Top Two

150/1 – To win the Premier League

West Ham United have enjoyed an excellent start to the 2021/22 Premier League campaign with David Moyes’ men sitting in pole position thanks to back-to-back wins over Newcastle United and Leicester City.

West Ham United finished sixth in the Premier League table at the close of last season with three points and a single position separating them from 2020 Champions League finalists Tottenham Hotspur who could only manage a seventh-placed finish. The Hammers will be aiming to repeat this feat in the new campaign and thus far they are managing to give an excellent account of themselves.

Having scored no less than eight goals in two games, the Hammers sit at the summit of the Premier League table thanks to emphatic wins over Newcastle United (2-4) and Leicester City (4-1), therefore it should come as no surprise to learn that the bookmakers have slashed the odds on them finishing in the top-six at the end of the current campaign.

As things stand, David Moyes’ men are priced at just 5/2 with BetVictor to achieve a top-six finish this season while the same bookmaker goes 10/1 that they finish in the top four and thus go through to the Champions League for next season.

33/1 says that the Hammers will finish in the top-two while the unlikely scenario of them winning the Premier League title this term is priced at a general 100/1.

Prior to last season, the Hammers have drifted dangerously close to the relegation zone at times, however the bookies certainly don’t feel that this will be the case in 2021/22, most firms going 33/1 that the Hammers find themselves plying their trade in the Championship next term.
