West Ham vs Manchester City Bet Builder Tips: Sunday May 15th
I’ve gone for a Sunday afternoon bet builder at odds of 9.50, as West Ham play host to Manchester City and with Liverpool busy in the FA Cup final the day before, it gives Pep Guardiola’s men an opportunity to pull further clear at the top of the Premier League.

Because by the end of Wednesday’s trip to Molineux, the Etihad outfit still find themselves with a three-point advantage over their nearest rivals and if they can earn a maximum haul from their trip to East London, a fourth league crown in five years will be all but theirs.
Especially as their already superior goal difference was enhanced in the West Midlands and with Kevin De Bruyne scoring a quartet for himself, he and his teammates answered any questions that Liverpool asked the night before.
Now though, they must deal with a West Ham outfit who have designs on a top-six finish and with a game in hand over City’s nearest neighbours, a return to the Europa League is not out of the question for next season.
Then again, this is a City side that has found an extra gear in the past week and after the huge disappointment of missing out on this month’s Champions League final, they have taken their frustration out on both Newcastle and Wolves.
180 minutes of Premier League football played since, 10 goals scored and only one conceded. That has been the tale of the tape for the current league leaders and for anyone who thought their momentum would be curtailed after Madrid, this has certainly not been the case.
If only for the simple fact that Pep Guardiola does not want a trophyless season attached to his name and with that burning desire to at least win something for City’s collective efforts, success in England’s top tier is now just around the corner.
With that said, West Ham showed nothing in the way of European deflation at the weekend and although it was only relegated Norwich who served as the opposition, it was still a rather impressive showing by the Hammers at Carrow Road.
Of course, their opponents on Sunday will be a much more difficult task and this is reflected in City’s odds of 1.40 to win. While with this price being offered, this looks a good starting point for any weekend accumulator.
Although for those who are looking to squeeze a little more value out of the game, the pursuit of goals is probably the best direction of travel and with a total of over 3.5 currently priced at 2.30, this should also be worth your consideration.

WHAT IS A BET BUILDER?
A bet builder is a kind of accumulator bet solely focussed on one match. A standard acca features multiple selections across different selections combined together into one bet. If one selection loses, the whole bet loses. A bet builder is similar but each selection is placed on the same match. Similar to the American prop bet, the bet builder goes into detail on a single match. Common selections include match outcome, total goals, cards, corners, and players to score.
