It's been rollercoaster of a season. Now one final hurdle stands between Manchester City and the glory of a second Premier League title. That hurdle is Sam Allardyce's West Ham. Can Big Sam's Hammers throw a wrench in the works? We have some free football betting tips.
The biggest question here is motivation. More specifically West Ham's motivation. Do they care at all about getting a result here. Liverpool need West Ham to win if they are to stand any chance of winning the title.
Now West Ham were thrashed 6-0 in the League Cup earlier this season and the professional pride from that should be enough for the Hammers to put in a shift. So I don't think that West Ham will be at the beach quite yet.
Furthermore, Saturday's West Ham team will be much stronger than the one that surrendered at the Eithad and the likes of Andy Carroll and James Tonkins might see a great performance as getting them into the England World Cup squad.
Despite all this though Man City are heavy, heavy, heavy favourites to win here available at 1/6 with betfred. A draw meanwhile is 8/1 with bet365 and a West Ham triumph is available at a massive 18/1 with Coral.
Now I don't think West Ham are going to win but at some point the odds are so big that they cannot be ignored. If they are offering prices of 18/1 on another Premier League side beating another Premier League side then that point has got to have been reached.
Footballing logic allows us to go further though. If West Ham are going to win it is going to be in a low scoring match. They aren't going to outscore City in a 3-4 classic. West Ham to win to nil is 33/1. The Hammers have kept 14 clean sheets this season it's not impossible they will do the same again.
If you cannot get on board with the long shot of a West Ham win (and who would blame you) then the half time/full time market offers some value. A draw at half time Man City win at full time is 15/4 with William Hill. I would remind you that Aston Villa who are not as defensively resolute as West Ham made it to half time at 0-0. There is no reason why West Ham couldn't do the same.
Lastly, Yaya Toure is scoring for fun. He bagged a goal late on against Aston Villa and has over 20 league goals for the season. The giant Ivorian to score and Man City to win is 6/4 with William Hill.
