Leicester v West Ham Prediction & Betting Tips, 5th May 20182nd May 2018 / lee
Leicester v West Ham Premier League Preview, 5th May 3.00pm
Leicester were torn apart in a heavy defeat against Crystal Palace last weekend for further proof that they have really gone off the boil. That’s three defeats in their last four played now. West Ham will be hoping to take advantage as they have work to do still to try and get safe. The Irons head into the weekend just three points above the relegation zone and with no win in their last four.
Leicester v West Ham Betting Odds*
Leicester 6/5, West Ham 11/5, Draw 12/5* (Betting Odds taken at 8:08 p.m. on April 30th, 2018)
Leicester News and Form
Leicester are limping towards the finish line in the Premier League with just one point from their last four matches. It hasn’t been the most difficult of fixtures in that sequence for them either. They were smashed 5-0 at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace last weekend and that is nine goals shipped in their last four games. Both teams to score at William Hill is at 13/20 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:15 p.m. on May 1st, 2018). Their home form is W6 D6 L5 for the season and they are currently on a five-match winless streak at the King Power (D4 L1). So they have been hard to take down there even if the wins haven’t been flowing for them. In the William Hill correct score market a Leicester 2-1 option at 9/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:15 p.m. on May 1st, 2018) may well have plenty of appeal going into this one.Neither defence looks particularly up to much. In total, the Foxes have only managed the two goals in their last four games in total.
West Ham News and Form
The Hammers are not safe from the threat of relegation with just a three points cushion above the relegation zone heading into the weekend. The big worry for them is at the back as they have shipped eight goals in their last two games. They have picked up just the one clean sheet in their last eight league games and in that sequence, they have conceded at least three goals in five of those eight fixtures. A defeat in this one would heap tremendous pressure on them because they have a tough game against Manchester United coming up after this before finishing against Everton. West Ham have taken one win in their last eight games (D2 L5) so the form is not there. Away from home they have taken one point from their last five games. All season they have only managed two victories and they have conceded at over two goals per game on their travels. Over 2.5 goals at William Hill is going to be worth a look as 72% of West Ham’s away games have gone over 2.5 goals while 56% have gone over 3.5 goals. This may get messily entertaining at the King Power.
Leicester v West Ham Head to Head
The two played out a 1-1 draw when they met in London back in November. It leaves Leicester on a long seven-match undefeated streak of form against the Hammers (W5 D2) in all competitions. The Foxes have won three of their last four home games against West Ham by a one-goal margin only. Five of the last seven meetings have gone over 2.5 goals and both teams have scored in all but one of the last seven clashes as well.
Who will win – Leicester v West Ham Predictions
While neither are in form at the moment the Foxes look the likelier of the two to bust out of their winless slump. They have more about them going forward and even though they collapsed last week, should be better at the back than the visitors. Home win and over 2.5 goals.
