The first English Premier League match on Sunday sees David Moyes' West Ham travel to Bramall Lane to take on Chris Wilder's Sheffield United. The visitors currently have their eyes set on a spot in Europe next season, while the home side are propping up the table and are looking all but relegated from the first division of English football. Who will win this match? Well, if you keep on reading, you will find out what I think is going to happen.

🏆 Sheffield United vs West Ham: Who Will Win?

betiton-desktop-bannerbetiton-desktop-banner

Nobody gave Sheffield United much hope of staying in the Premier League this season, and they are proving everyone right as they are currently sitting at the bottom of the EPL table with just nine points from the 20 matches that they have played - 2 wins, 3 draws, and 15 defeats. Not only are they the lowest-scoring team in the league, having scored just 15 goals, but they also have the weakest defense, having conceded 49 goals to date.

West Ham have been one of the form teams in the English Premier League as of late, picking up 4 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss from their previous six league matches. This form has seen them climb to 6th in the table, just six points adrift of one of the coveted Champions League positions. As a result of their form, they will be disappointed if they do not come away from Sheffield with all three points in the bag.

West Ham, as you will see later on, do have several injuries to key players ahead of this match, but I still think that they have the talent at their disposal to win. Sheffield will set up not to lose, but I can see West Ham coming away with a 2-0 win here.

My Prediction: 🏆 Sheffield United 0 West Ham 2 ⚽

💯 Sheffield United vs West Ham Match Odds

Established, as well as new UK betting sites, know that the majority of sports bettors like to put their money on football bets, which is why they will make sure that they have more football markets than you can shake that proverbial stick at.

Some football betting markets are a lot more popular than others, and you can find the odds that some top British bookmakers are offering for match winner, both teams to score, and over/under 2.5 goals. If you want to find out about the free bets that these sites are offering, click on the logos.

Sheffield United vs West Ham: Match Winner Odds

When you check out the odds that are on offer, you probably will not be surprised to see that West Ham are the favourites. However, I must say that I expected the visitors to have shorter odds than what they do - I guess this is because of their absentees. Despite their missing players, I still think that the odds offer plenty of value for a West Ham victory.

Nottingham Forest vs West Ham: Both Teams To Score Odds

In their previous six matches in the league, West Ham have scored 9 goals and have kept 4 clean sheets in the process, so they have no issue when it comes to scoring or keeping the ball out of their net. Sheffield United have scored just 4, and have conceded 10, so the same really cannot be said of them. Sheffield have only scored 15 goals all season, so I am pretty surprised that the bookies are favouring both teams to score.

Sheffield United vs West Ham: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

The top British sports betting sites reckon that there will be fewer than three goals scored in this match, and this is something that I can finally agree with. Sheffield United will look to sit back and frustrate West Ham, but I do not think they will have the defensive skills to keep Moyes' men out. I can see West Ham winning by a couple of goals while keeping a clean sheet.

✔️ Sheffield United vs West Ham - Betting Tips

Now that I have informed you about the odds that some top bookies are offering for three of the most popular markets, I shall now give you my top football betting tips for this Sheffield United vs West Ham match.

  • Tip 1: Bet on a West Ham win: The bookies have West Ham as the favourites to win, but they have higher odds than what I would have expected. I do not mind seeing this though as it means that there is extra value available for an away win. These teams have met five times since Sheffield returned to the big time, and West Ham have 3 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss. The Hammers are in much better form, so back them to win. BetUK Sports are offering odds of 2.20.
  • Tip 2: Bet on both teams not to score: West Ham are not the biggest scorers in the league, averaging 1.5 goals per match, but we cannot say that they struggle to score. The same, however, cannot be said of Sheffield United, who are scoring just 0.75 goals per game. The Hammers have kept four clean sheets in a row, and I see them making it five here. At the time of writing, 10Bet are offering odds of 1.95 for this market.
  • Tip 3: Bet on under 2.5 goals: Sheffield United will not go out to win this match, although a draw really does not do them much good. They will play a low block and look to score on the counter. However, as we saw above, scoring has been a big issue for them, while West Ham have not conceded in four EPL matches. I do not see Sheffield scoring, while I can see West Ham winning 2-0. BetUK Sport are offering odds of 1.77 for under 2.5 goals.
  • Tip 3: Bet on West Ham to win 2-0: If, like me, you also think that West Ham will win this match 2-0, then you can find odds of 10.00 for this result at LeoVegas Sports.

1️⃣ Sheffield United Update

If you put £10 on Sheffield United to be relegated at the start of the season, then I highly doubt that you would have made even £1 on such a wager. Everyone expected them to get relegated, and this is looking very likely as they are 8 points adrift of Everton, who currently sit in 7th place. A team has survived in such situations before, but it is really hard to see where their next win is coming from. They struggle to score and are conceding far too many.

2️⃣West Ham Update

Moyes has done a wonderful job at West Ham and, despite their defeat to Bristol in the FA Cup midweek, he has got them firing in the league. They have picked up 13 points from the last 18 that have been on offer, and have conceded just six goals in this time. Only Liverpool have conceded fewer goals in their last six matches, which gives you a solid idea as to how good they have been defensively. If they win this match, they could end up being just three points off fourth spot.
