After landing a winner in his featured column on Saturday, SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of West Ham's showdown with Everton at the London Stadium on Sunday.
West Ham vs Everton (Sunday, 16:30)
West Ham's charge towards Champions League qualification is back on track and they will be looking to solidify their top-four credentials when Everton come calling.
The Hammers have been among the Premier League‘s surprise packages this season and they bolstered their bid for a top-four berth with a well-deserved 2-1 win at Burnley on Monday night.
Everton, meanwhile, only have an outside chance of making the top-four following last week's limp 2-1 loss at home to Aston Villa.
That setback means the Toffees have taken maximum points from just one of their last seven Premier League matches and as such Everton have no room for error in their pursuit of a European place.
Given that Carlo Ancelotti's crew are producing such contrasting home and away performances, I'm going to swerve the match result market here and instead head to Bet 365‘s Bet Builder.
If we combine over one match goal and each team to see at least one card we will be presented with a nice looking 10/11 shot.
Nine of the Hammers last 11 Premier League games have produced two or more goals, not to mention BTTS backers would have been rewarded in a league-high 20/34 West Ham matches this season.
Everton, on the other hand, boast the division's third-best road record, with the Toffees notching in 14/16 league matches away from their Merseyside base this term.
With that in mind, coupled the fact that West Ham's last five league fixtures have featured three or more match goals, I'm happy to side with over one match strike at the London Stadium on Sunday.
In order to nudge the price up to 10/11 (Bet 365), I'll also back each team to collect at least one card in what should be an evenly-fought encounter.
West Ham have seen at least one card in each of their last six league games, while the Blues have gone into the book in 19 of their last 20 top-flight tussles.
What's more, we have a strict referee here in Stuart Atwell (3.75 card per game average ) and it's also worth noting that that above-mentioned combination has clicked in five of West Ham's last six league outings.
