West Ham United v Arsenal Betting Tips
West Ham United will be forgiven for having more than one eye on next Thursday's Europa League tie. This could hand a big advantage to the visiting Gunners. At 4/5, an away win is excellent value.
Arsenal have not kept a clean sheet in five previous league games throughout April. Therefore, at odds of 13/5, Arsenal to win and both teams to score could offer greater value than simply backing the away win.
Eddie Nketiah remains the best option in the first and any time scorer markets for The Gunners. The forward scored twice against Chelsea last week and was unlucky to see a goal against Manchester United chalked off at the weekend. Nketiah is 9/2 to score first or 11/8 to net at any time at the London Stadium.
- West Ham United: 10/3
- Draw: 14/5
- Arsenal: 4/5
