West Ham vs Manchester City Bet Builder: Sunday, August, 7th

When it comes to West Ham versus Manchester City bet builder tips, you have certainly come to the right place. With David Moyes’ men being given one of the toughest opening weekend tests, Sunday will show whether they have the answers to this football exam.

Because with Pep Guardiola now ready to unleash Erling Haaland on the Premier League, the Norwegian will look to open his City scoring account as soon as this weekend.

West Ham vs Manchester City Preview

Sunday, August 7th, 16:30 (UK)

Although the end of the previous Premier League season was almost three months ago, a lot has changed since then. Change that for Manchester City, sees an evolution of their attacking personnel.

Out goes Gabriel Jesus to Arsenal, in comes Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund. An upgrade that has struck fear into each of the other 19 teams that are competing in this season’s Premier League.

While one of that group of 19 is West Ham and they themselves have also added firepower up front. Additional resource comes in the shape of Italian international Gianluca Scamacca.

Admittedly the attention will not be placed on the former Sassuolo forward this weekend, although that may do him and his new club a favour. Because with all the London Stadium’s eyes on Haaland this Sunday, it may allow the Italian to fly under the radar.

Then again, if all the focus is placed on City’s new marquee signing, it may also allow any of his nine new outfield teammates to go unnoticed. Should that happen, then it could be a long afternoon for the Hammers.

However, that does not mean David Moyes’s managerial nous should be overlooked. Especially after the fortunes of the past two seasons. This means Sunday has all the hallmarks of a rather entertaining encounter.

As mentioned above the focus is unsurprisingly on Erling Haaland this weekend. Then again, when you look at this goal record for Borussia Dortmund in both the Bundesliga and Champions League you can understand why.

Which is why I have plumped for the Norwegian to not only score on Sunday, but more importantly open proceedings at the London Stadium. While by the same token, West Ham’s new Italian forward Gianluca Scamacca is priced at 4.50 to score anytime.

In addition to Haaland opening his account at the London Stadium and putting City ahead, I believe that this will be one of at least three goals on Sunday. Whether that means West Ham score two for themselves and earn maximum points, we will have to wait and see.

For those who do feel that an opening weekend upset of sorts is just around the corner, you can back a West Ham win at odds of 8.00. A price that in all honesty, may just be worth some of your consideration.

To extend on this further, the home win or draw at odds of 3.00, is always worth weighing up. Especially if City fluff their lines in a similar way to how they did in the Community Shield last Saturday.

As for the rest of this bet builder, I think with three or more goals being scored, nine or more corners is also a rather logical conclusion. Add at least a card to be shown and when all four components are fused together, odds of 7.50 are currently on offer.

  • Erling Haaland to score first
  • Over 2 total goals
  • Over 8 total corners
  • Over 0 total cards

Bet Builder odds: 7.50
