Sunday 4.30pm: West Ham v Manchester City
TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League

Good news! The Premier League is back. Better news? Paddy’s given everyone a FREE £/€5 bet for the opening weekend of the season. So, we’ve enlisted the clever folk over at ValueBetSpotter to do a deep-dive into West Ham’s tie against last year’s champions Manchester City and found a Bet Builder that we hope will kick off the season in style.

Jarrod Bowen to Have 2 Or More shots

We’ll start with Jarrod Bowen who averaged 2.52 shots per start last season, and was a huge threat against Manchester City in this exact fixture four months ago. West Ham’s 2-2 draw with Man City in May saw Bowen hit four shots, including two goals.

Bowen’s home shots in his last 10 league starts are 1, 4 (vs Man City), 1, 3, 2, 1, 2, 2, 5, 5. Man City proved to be far from defensively solid in last weekend’s Community Shield loss to Liverpool, where they conceded 15 shots against The Reds so we’ve a great chance of Jarrod Bowen Having 2 Or More Shots here.

Over 1.5 West Ham Cards

Michael Oliver’s manning the whistle for the Hammers’ season opener and that usually means one thing is near guaranteed: Cards. Michael Oliver took charge of 26 games in the Premier League last season, showing 75 yellow cards and a whopping 7 red cards – more than any other referee.

In City’s visit to the London Stadium in May, West Ham racked up 3 yellow cards. Oliver has shown at least 3 or more match cards in 10 out of 12 games in all competitions and we’re expecting more of the same here with Over 1.5 West Ham Cards.

West Ham Over 2.5 Corners

West Ham had a superb corner record in the Premier League last season. They managed three or more corners in 33 of 38 games, including 4 in each fixture against Manchester City both at home and at the Etihad.

West Ham’s corner record against Manchester City and Liverpool last season read 4, 4, 6, 4. At the London stadium, West Ham have had three or more corners in 10 out of 11 games. We expect that trend to continue and for West Ham to Have Over 2.5 Corners here.

Under 4.5 Goals

West Ham under David Moyes have looked defensively solid, and, as a result, league games involving West Ham have had Under 4.5 Goals in 16 of their last 16. On top of this, all six of their last head-to-head meetings between these two have seen Under 4.5 Goals.

David Moyes has faced Man City six times since taking charge in 2019 and has yet to be in charge of a game against The Citizens that has had over 4.5 goals in the game.
