West Ham are one of the form sides this year and Dan Fitch likes their price to beat Sheffield United, as he previews the weekend Premier League games using Opta statistics.
He says: “Coming into this weekend’s fixtures, only Manchester City (24) have won more Premier League points than West Ham so far in 2021 (16), with the Hammers winning five of their seven league games so far this calendar year (D1 L1).”
The 1.774/5 on offer looks like a great price for a West Ham win.
