KP Stadium, tonight, 7.45 (live Sky Sports 1)

THERE have been some strange results in the Championship recently but I can see it going to form tonight.

West Ham will surely get a big lift from Southampton's defeat at Middlesbrough on Saturday which means the second promotion spot is up for grabs.

The Hammers must win at Leicester then hope Saints don't beat Coventry at the weekend so it's a tall order.

Leicester have nothing to play for and having racked up 12 away wins already this season I'm on a lucky 13th for Sam Allardyce's men.

They are a biggest 15-8 with Skybet  while Leicester are 17-10 at William Hill and the draw
5-2 with Ladbrokes.

The Hammers have netted 18 goals in six games and it was 3-2 when the sides met earlier in the season. I fancy both to score at 4-6 with Ladbrokes and over 2.5 goals at 4-5 with Ladbrokes.

There are suggestions Leicester could play some youngsters in their final home game of the season but with the promotion issue still alive that would be unfair to Southampton so they will probably be close to full strength.

Picking a first scorer isn't easy as the Hammers have so many attacking options. Ricardo Vaz Te, who has netted in five of his last six games, is 6-1 favourite at Coral but I'd go 2-1 on him with Coral to score at any time.

The man most likely for Leicester is Jermain Beckford who is 12-5 with Stan James to score.

Leagues Tipped:
  1. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Paul I’m with you on Vaz Te to score at anytime. 10 goals in 12 games. Available at a very tasty price of 2/1. Generally available at 6/4 and 11/8 elsewhere and as short as 10/11 with hills.

    Gonnae stick £100 on him.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, good luck with that, you’re due some. I’m away golfing for the day and watching the Bankies at night so will check in time to time.

  2. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    He also hits the penalties and recently scored a hat trick. I’d imagine his price will be cut shortly.

  3. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Yeah cheers Paul. Think I’ll stick on first or last also for ¬£10. If he scores first or last it’s a ¬£250 profit or if he scores anywhere in between it’s ¬£180 profit.

    I think Hooper will be away from Celtic in the summer. He’s just not banging in the goals lately.

  4. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Just to let everyone know that Coral refunded all losing bets on first goalscorer, last goalscorer, correct scores and scorecast on the Celtic game yesterday with their Easy Three Promotion. Team wins by a 3 goal margin.

  5. David Paterson 12 years ago

    I am going for Vaz Te first scorer with Betfred @ 5/1 but I think he may score 2 or more so if he does score 2 or 3 betfred will double the first scorer odds and treble the first scorer odds if he scores the hat-trick. Any1 else thinks this is worth a shout/?

  6. Peter Brown 12 years ago

    Am going for

    West ham utd win
    Malaga win
    Bastia (-1) win

    Treble! Good luck lads!

  7. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    David why don’t you cover yourself and put him on anytime. You could put on enough just to cover your first goalscorer stake incase he doesn’t get first goal.

  8. David Paterson 12 years ago

    a good bit of thinking there, will probably just do that. maybe a wee 5er jus at least get my money back. Thanks Chris

  9. Matthew 12 years ago

    Do coral give money back if the 1st goal scorer bet is done in play?

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Matthew, as David says I’m pretty certain that offer won’t be for in-running bets.

  10. David Paterson 12 years ago

    a Doubt it very much matthew, normally these bets have to be put on before the game has kicked off.

  11. McGart 12 years ago

    David the betfred site has been down since early hours this morning! I am a fan of the double delight hatrick heaven but do you know if this is avalible in store on tonights game? I could place the bet at totesport online but to be honest I cant be bothered opening an account.

    Chris thats how i plan to play tonight.
    Im going for

    .Vaz te first goal betfred 5/1 double delight hatrick heaven.
    .Vaz te last goal coral 6/1.
    .Vaz te anytime 2/1 still at corals. Surprised that price has lasted. Chris if its 2/1 corals online do you think it will be 2/1 instore?

  12. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

  13. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

  26. joe knotts 12 years ago

    Wanted to speak to u Mr F. I picked QPR @ 3/1 for my super single and 0-0 in villa v sunderland @ 8/1 for my bonkers bet. The problem is im an idiot/knob coz i didnt bet on either of them. So i was wondering if u could help me out. I worked out if i done two fiver singles and a double i wuda won 245 quid. Seen as im not greedy i was thinking a wee 100 quid bet for any bet site would be spiffing. Thanx in advance ;)

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Joe Knotts, you’ve got me in Knotts but don’t think the winners have been picked yet so you could land lucky.

  27. mcgart 12 years ago

    Has vaz te been playing upfront in recent weeks? And been pushed ourlt wide 2nite because of coles return?

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Cole wasn’t meant to be playing tonight through injury so has probably been pushed deeper.

  28. joe knotts 12 years ago

    Haha im sensing thats a nae on the ton then!!

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Joe, you’re no’ daft. But next time place the bets.

  29. Badham 12 years ago
