Stockport v West Ham Bet Builder Tips : Requestabet Predictions from FA Cup



Stockport County host West Ham United in the FA Cup tonight in a 8pm kick-off at Edgeley Park.

Stockport, who are currently fourth in the National League, overcame Chesterfield, Rochdale and Yeovil to reach this stage of the competition.

West Ham, meanwhile, may fancy a cup run with any relegation concerns out of the equation this season.

How to get Stockport v West Ham tips

The Hammers are 1/3 favourites win the match, with a Stockport upset considered a 8/1 shot. The draw is 9/2, with extra-time and penalties following in that scenario.

It’s rare for me to consider a 1/3 shot value, but I actually think West Ham are in this case. David Moyes has confirmed he will play a fairly strong side consisting of his players on the fringes of the first team, meaning the likes of Manuel Lanzini, Andriy Yarmolenko and Said Benrahma are likely to start in attack.

The Hammers will lack a focal point, though, with Sebastian Haller sold to Ajax earlier this week, and Michail Antonio likely to be rested after his recent hamstring issues.

Yarmolenko has the height to start through the middle, though, with West Ham having more than enough strength in depth to comfortably overcome a side four divisions below them.

Admittedly they were embarrassed 4-2 at AFC Wimbledon at this stage of the competition two years ago, but that was a very different West Ham side under Manuel Pellegrini, with the Hammers a much more defensively organised outfit under Moyes.

Indeed, no side out of the ‘Big Six’ has scored more than once against them away from home in the league this season, so I don’t expect Stockport to either, so will back Under 2 Goals for Stockport.

I think West Ham can win by at least a two goal margin, too, with this considered an even-money shot:

In terms of player markets, it is obviously difficult to predict without seeing the team sheets, but I’d fancy Yarmolenko and Benhrama to do some damage if they do start.

Yarmolenko is 13/8 (Unibet) to score anytime, with Benrahma 21/10 (bet365) to get on the scoresheet.

Mike Dean officiates the clash, meanwhile, so there’s always a chance of cards, even in a potentially one-sided cup tie. Louis Maynard is Stockport’s holding midfielder and has been booked three times in 14 league appearances this season, so 19/4 (Betway) looks a decent price for him to be cautioned.

Mark Noble should captain West Ham and is always prone to a booking, making 7/2 (bet365) a decent price.
