West Ham United vs Chelsea EFL Betting Preview

There’s a London derby in the EFL Cup as West Ham United welcome Chelsea to the Olympic Stadium in the last-16 of the competition on Wednesday evening.

The Hammers are coming into some form ahead of this week’s cup clash with the Blues which should make for a more competitive affair than previously expected.

However, Chelsea’s own upturn in form coupled with their formidable head-to-head record over United makes them favourites to progress to the quarter-finals.

Hosts West Ham have picked up consecutive wins without conceding in the Premier League against Crystal Palace and Sunderland ahead of Wednesday’s EFL Cup meeting with Chelsea.

Slaven Bilic’s men have been far from convincing on home soil, however, averaging little more than a point per game at their new ground, and a Chelsea side desperate for silverware could well take advantage. Chelsea are 5/6 with Unibet to win against West Ham United on Wednesday evening.

As for the visitors, Antonio Conte’s side are enjoying a run of three consecutive wins. They most recently put four goals past Manchester United in the Premier League, and haven’t conceded a goal during their winning streak.

The Blues have been inconsistent away from home in the league but with West Ham still getting used to life at the Olympic Stadium, Chelsea could control Wednesday’s tie. Conte won’t rest many first-teamers so he’ll be expecting a strong performance this week for Chelsea to book their place in the quarter-finals.

It perhaps doesn’t bode well for West Ham United that the Londoners have averaged just one goal per game on home soil against a Chelsea side having shut out their last three opponents.
And with the visitors averaging three goals per game in their last three in the league, a West Ham defence that has conceded 17 goals in the top-flight could struggle to contain the 2014/15 title-winners. Chelsea have won five and drawn two of their last eight league head-to-heads with West Ham, winning two of their last three on their turf alone.

Betting tip for West Ham v Chelsea

Chelsea were very impressive against Manchester United and are taken to carry on that good form and claim victory against the Hammers who are still a bit jittery at home. The best odds on a Chelsea win come from Unibet @5/6. For some value our tip would be to back that Chelsea will lead at half time and at full time @24/13 also with Unibet.
