Football expert Ryan Elliott has picked out a massive 9/1 double for Wednesday's fixtures.
West Ham v Burnley - Premier League - 18:00
For Wednesday’s double, I’ve gone for two odds-against shots, starting with Burnley to beat West Ham at the London Stadium, priced at a very generous 16/5.
I can see why the bookies are favouring West Ham: four points from two games against Newcastle and Chelsea has seen them pull handily clear of the relegation zone.
However, Burnley’s form (seven points from their last three games, conceding just one) is going slightly under the radar, and they have every chance of securing European football next season.
Sean Dyche’s men have won three of their last four games against the Hammers, and are tailor-made to nullify David Moyes’ side: good enough at the back to blunt West Ham’s attacking options, while being clinical enough at the other end to take advantage of their inevitable defensive lapses.
West Ham probably should be slight favourites, but looking at these two sides, comparing their performances this season and against each other in the past, and there’s no way Burnley should be 3/1 to win this. It’s worth a punt.
Birmingham v Swansea - Championship - 18:00
I’m also backing Swansea to beat Birmingham on the road at 11/7.
There’s no doubt that Swansea are the superior footballing side to Birmingham, and while Steve Cooper’s outfit have struggled for consistency this season, they should still be earmarking this game as a must-win if they wish to qualify for the play-offs.
As for the Blues, they’re well and truly stumbling over the finish line – earning just two points from their four games back, failing to score on three occasions. Their 3-0 home defeat to Huddersfield should act as ample encouragement for Swansea here.
9/1 for this double to land feels generous.
