West Ham are refusing to give up on a surprise top-four finish in the Premier League and look a percentage pick to see off Everton at London Stadium.
The Toffees have faltered in their own quest to qualify for Europe and may just have had the stuffing knocked out of them ahead of this tough trip.
We’re happy to take 13/10 for the Hammers to prevail as our first West Ham vs Everton prediction.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham bounced back from losses to Newcastle and Chelsea by coming from behind to win 2-1 at Burnley.
Chris Wood’s penalty put the Hammers under pressure but a quickfire double strike from Michail Antonio turned things around in an eventful first half.
That result left United three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and still within sight of Leicester, who have a hard run-in.
“There are a lot of good things we can take away with our overall performance and our appetite to score goals,” said David Moyes.
“We’re trying to stay around at the moment and keep up with the teams at the top.
“Whether we can make the top four I’m not really sure but we’ll really try to get ourselves in a position where we can make Europe – and we’re in there fighting with four games to go.”
Antonio’s impressive comeback from a month-long hamstring injury was a major boost while Said Benrahma was a menace throughout.
The Hammers have claimed 12 of their last 15 league wins by a one-goal margin and 3/1 for that to be the case again here stands out from the West Ham vs Everton odds.
Last West Ham line-up: Fabianski, Cresswell, Coufal, Dawson, Diop, Lanzini, Lingard, Fornals, Soucek, Benrahma, Antonio.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton’s home form has been a problem all season and they slipped to an eighth defeat at Goodison Park when going down 2-1 to Aston Villa.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin soon cancelled out a 13th-minute Ollie Watkins opener but there was no coming back from Anwar El Ghazi’s superb late curler.
“It is difficult to say why we have this kind of home run,” said Carlo Ancelotti.
“This is the same team (bar James Rodriguez who pulled out of the warm-up with injury) that won against Arsenal eight days ago.
“We were in good momentum and good form and then another bad performance at home. It is a completely different team, a completely different attitude.
“Of course, we could do better at home. Away was different. It’s all unbelievable – it’s unbelievable the run we had away and it’s unbelievable the run we’ve had at home.”
It does have to be noted that the Toffees have secured an impressive 10 victories on the road, including some notable triumphs.
Last month saw a first win at Arsenal in 25 years, the Toffees have also prevailed at Anfield for first time since 1999 and beaten the likes of Leicester and Leeds away.
Perhaps it is worth a saver on either team to win this match by one goal at 13/10 to finish off our West Ham vs Everton betting tips.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Holgate, Digne, Godfrey, Coleman, Allan, Sigurdsson, Iwobi, Gomes, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin.
