West Ham United vs Everton Betting Tip
The main talking point heading into this dead rubber match at London Stadium is the news that Wayne Rooney has agreed a £12m deal to join DC United this summer. That means that Sunday’s game will mark the end of Rooney’s career in the Premier League and the former England captain will be desperate to go out with a bang in this one. The last time Rooney faced West Ham United he scored a hat trick, including a stunning goal from the half way line and the Scouse legend would love a similar outcome on Sunday.

West Ham United
David Moyes has got the job done at West Ham United since he came in; his main aim was survival and he has achieved that. The football has been pretty dour though and his position could well come under threat this summer if they turn in another below par performance on Sunday. West Ham did manage to pick up a battling 0-0 draw with Manchester United in their last game and Moyes would love an equally encouraging result against one of his former clubs on Sunday. Andy Carroll will be pushing for a starting spot in this one and the giant striker now needs a miracle if he is to have any chance of gaining a call up to the England squad for this summer’s World Cup.
Everton come into this game on a solid run of form which has seen them go unbeaten in their last five matches. The Toffees cannot finish any higher than their current position of 8th place, but a defeat, coupled with a victory for Leicester City could see them slip to 9th in the table. Wayne Rooney didn’t start their 1-1 draw with Southampton last time out, but the Everton legend is sure to start what is likely to be his final game in English football on Sunday. Rooney will be looking to add to his tally of 10 goals for the season and sign off in style.
- Everton are unbeaten in their last nine matches away at West Ham United.
- David Moyes has faced Everton five times since leaving the club, but his sides have failed to score or pick up any points in those matches.
- If Wayne Rooney plays, it will be his 492nd Premier League match, the striker has scored 208 goals in those games.
Neither of these sides really have anything to play for here and this game really is all about Wayne Rooney. Everton come into the game in solid form, whilst West Ham are also unbeaten in their last two matches, so a draw could well be the most likely outcome here. I do think there will be goals though and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a final result of 2-2.
Betting Tips (NairaBet)
West Ham United start this game as slight favourites at odds of 2,3, whilst an away win for Everton is priced up at 3, with the draw on offer at 3,4. I’ve backed a draw in this one and the 3,4 on offer looks like a solid bet. An even better bet could well be on Draw & BTTS at 4,25 as I do think there will be goals on offer in this one. Wayne Rooney is the main draw in this game and he is sure to be involved in plenty of the action. You can get odds of 1,80 on his to have 2+ shots in the game, which looks a given, whilst the 2,9 available on him to score at anytime looks like a superb bet to me.
