Man City vs. West Ham prediction, odds, betting tips and best bets for final Premier League match of season | Sporting News

Manchester City have one hand on the Premier League trophy, and they will look to claim the title for sure as they host West Ham on the final matchday of the EPL season.

Sitting two points adrift at the top of the table, victory at the Etihad would confirm an unprecedented fourth straight top flight championship, which has never been done before in Premier League history
. Yet a draw may not be enough if Arsenal defeat Everton at the Emirates Stadium.

No team has come into the final matchday with the lead atop the table and failed to win the title since the Premier League began play in 1992.

West Ham, meanwhile, sit ninth in the Premier League and have nothing competitively to play for, but would be motivated here to seek what would be a historic and memorable result if they were to scuttle Man City’s title chase on the precipice of history.

Man City vs. West Ham prediction, odds

  • Moneyline lean: Man City (-900)
  • Score prediction: Man City 2-0 West Ham

As much as West Ham will hope they can spring an upset, the question here isn’t whether Man City will come through with the necessary three points, but by what kind of margin. City can play defensively when needed, using possession to keep the air out of the ball, as they did against Tottenham in the first half of their meeting last week.

City will know they are sure to come through with the result if they keep their heads down and pick their spots, and don’t need an all-out onslaught to do the job.

Man City vs. West Ham best bet

  • Pick: Man City to win 2H and over 2.5 goals
  • Odds: +130 (BetMGM)
  • Pick: Half with most goals — 2H
  • Odds: -120 (BetMGM)

Man City have the attacking prowess to put this one away early, but against strong counter-attacking sides like Tottenham on Tuesday or West Ham on Sunday, they will look to keep a lid on the match through the first half before asserting their dominance later on.

Expect City to wear down their opponents early before winning the title after the break when West Ham are well and truly exhausted.


Man City vs. West Ham prop bet

  • Pick: Under 9.5 total corners
  • Odds: -118 (FanDuel)

Man City are not a pacey, vertical team, and neither are West Ham, so there’s no reason for this game to go over the total. City have only gone over this threshold once in their last five matches, against Tottenham who are a pacey, vertical side.

Otherwise, Man City don’t rack up corners at an extreme rate, and they keep their opponents at bay too, limiting Fulham, Wolves, Nottingham Forest, and Brighton to a combined nine corners across those four opponents prior to the Spurs match.
