Before you lock in your Manchester City vs. West Ham picks or English Premier League predictions, you NEED to see what proven soccer expert Martin Green has to say.
After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated almost $35,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season, and he has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
Green knows that City has dominated despite being without a true striker, and with Haaland in the mix it should be even more dangerous. The 22-year-old scored 86 goals in 89 games in his three seasons with Dortmund. The Citizens also added Argentinian striker Julian Alvarez, also 22, and he scored the lone goal in a 3-1 loss to Liverpool in last week's Community Shield matchup. City will be eager to atone for that loss.
Green also has considered that the Hammers were in the running for a top-four spot last season before a sluggish second half. They added striker Gianluca Scamacca, who had 34 goals in six seasons in Italy but might not be fit in time. Star midfielder Declan Rice remains, and Jarrod Bowen (12 goals, 10 assists), Michail Antonio (10 goals, eight assists) and Pablo Fornals (six goals) all can put it in the back of the net.
