West Ham v Bournemouth Prediction & Betting Tips, 20th January 2018

West Ham

West Ham v Bournemouth Premier League Preview, 20th January 3.00pm

The Hammers have given themselves renewed hope of staying up with a four-match unbeaten streak of form going in the Premier League. That has seen them sail up towards the middle of the table. They will be taking on a Bournemouth side though who have also offered up some much better resilience recently with a four-match unbeaten streak of their own going. West Ham are even money for the win at Paddy Power with the draw at 5/2 and Bournemouth at 11/2* (Betting Odds taken on January 16th, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.)

West Ham News and Form

The Hammers are now unbeaten in their last four league games (W2 D2) and they have lost just one of their last eight in the top flight. Their defence has taken a bit of beating though and David Moyes will be wondering just what is going on. They are without a clean sheet now in five and they have shipped nine goals in that sequence. But after a bit of a dry spell, they are scoring well with them having netted at least two goals in five of their last six league games and hammered Huddersfield 4-1 last weekend. They have decent options now in the Paddy Power anytime goalscorer market in Marko Arnautovic and Andy Carroll, as well as Chicharito and they, are looking more of an attacking threat at least. Still, both teams to score at Paddy Power looks a pretty solid option for the game at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken on January 16th, 2018 at 9:09 p.m.). The Hammers have only managed the four wins this season on home soil but they have lost just one of their last five there so it suggests that they are going to be strong enough to hold their own and avoid defeat at the very least.

Bournemouth News and Form

The Cherries are unbeaten in four like West Ham so are likely to put up a fight. There is a lot of similarities between these two at the moment because the Cherries can’t buy a clean sheet at the moment and their scoring output has been improving all the time. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last four games played and landed a big three points in toppling Arsenal last weekend. It has been a while since they landed an away win though as they have failed to win any of their last five away from the Vitality Stadium. So that counts against them a bit and overall their away form reads just W2 D3 L6 for the season on their travels. They have conceded at least two goals in three of their last four road games. Callum Wilson’s recent return to scoring form has been a huge boost for them and he is a 15/8 anytime goalscorer option at Paddy Power* (Betting Odds taken on January 16th, 2018 at 9:09 p.m.). While the Cherries have improved their scoring recently, they have totalled just the eight goals away from home this season, failing to score in 55% of their road fixtures.

West Ham v Bournemouth Head to Head

There was a thrilling 3-3 draw between the two of them at the Vitality Stadium earlier in the season. Four of the last five between them have seen at least four goals in the game. Things are evenly set between two of them with two wins each and a draw in their five previous Premier League meetings. Bournemouth have scored at least three goals in three of their last five against the Irons.

Who will win – West Ham v Bournemouth Predictions

Neither defence has been very good recently so there should be goals in this one. However, it is hard to pick a winner out of the two and therefore the draw should have appeal in the match outright. Neither would be unhappy with a share of the spoils in this one as it keeps them both ticking over well. The 1-1 draw in the correct score market looks about right.

West Ham v Shrewsbury FA Cup Prediction & Betting Tips – 16th January 2018

West Ham

West Ham v Shrewsbury FA Cup, 16th January 7.45pm

The Hammers were always going to get a really tough game out at the New Meadow in this FA Cup third round tie. But they survived the ordeal against the League One high-flyers and will expect to be far more comfortable back on home soil. The Shrews are defensive powerhouses though and have every chance of putting in another decent shift against their Premier League opponents. West Ham are 1/2 at Coral for the win, with the draw at 16/5 and Shrewsbury at 6/1* (Betting Odds taken from January 13th, 2018 at 0:57 a.m.)

West Ham v Shrewsbury FA Cup Betting Tips

The Hammers seem to be moving clear of Premier League relegation issues after pounding Huddersfield on the weekend. They do have to go again though against the Shrews in the FA Cup after surviving their first trial against them. West Ham have not been in any sparkling form really, but their levels of resilience have been upped since David Moyes arrived. West Ham are unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions but have just the two victories in their last seven games. So this could be another tight duel between the two sides, but over 2.5 goals at Coral does have some appeal because there should have been goals in the first meeting and West Ham will probably be a little bit stronger here to ensure progress. West Ham have only won two for their last seven home games though in all competitions, and both wins in that sequence were by a one-goal margin. West Ham have just two clean sheets at home in their last seven. It could really end up being a pretty exciting replay as Shrewsbury turn up with nothing to lose.

This will be just the sixth meeting between the two clubs. The previous ones prior to them getting drawn in this season’s FA Cup were all in Division two from 1979 to 1981. The two of them landed two wins each from those four meetings so everything is even in the head to head between them.

The Shrews are going well near the top of League One but they did lose on the weekend but perhaps had their eye on this replay? Overall they have been on cracking form and their defence is rock solid as well. Their 3-1 away loss at Blackburn snapped a ten-match unbeaten streak of form that they were on, during which they collected seven clean sheets. Blackburn are just a place beneath them in the league standings so that was a tough game. Away from home, they have not been prolific as they have been at home and the League One side have gone W3 D4 L3 in their last ten road games, winning just one of their last four. Out at a Premier League side, they may come up short, but they have in them to battle and scrap because they do look a confident side at the moment. In the Coral correct score market a West Ham 2-1 scoreline returns a price of 7/1 which backs the Shrews making them sweat, but ultimately just coming up short* (Betting Odds taken from January 15th, 2018 at 00.33 a.m.). The winner of the tie moves on to play either Bournemouth or Wigan.

Who will win – West Ham v Shrewsbury FA Cup Predictions

Back the Hammers to squeeze their way through this one as that is what generally happens in situations like this. The higher-ranked side usually comes good back on home soil. However, the Shrews are a decent form and may only slip by the one goal margin.

Huddersfield v West Ham Prediction & Betting Tips, 13th January 2018

West Ham

Huddersfield v West Ham Premier League Preview, 13th January 3.00pm

The Terriers will be looking for a positive response to their New Year’s Day drubbing at the hands of Leicester at the King Power. They have only lost one of their last home games in the top flight so they have been getting points. West Ham have pulled clear of the relegation zone with a good three-match unbeaten streak of form and this could be a pretty even contest. Huddersfield are 8/5 at Bet365 to win this with West Ham at 15/8 and the draw at 2/1* (Betting Odds were taken January 9th, 2018 at 9.51pm)

Huddersfield News and Form

The Terriers are on a four-match winless streak (D3 L1) and have collected just the one win in their last six league outings. They have dug in pretty well on home soil through with a W1 D2 L1 record at home in their last four league games. Overall they are W4 D4 L3 at home this season with only Spurs, Man City and Chelsea having won there. Just 36% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals so it is worth looking under 2.5 goals at Bet365 for a price of 6/4* (Betting Odds were taken January 10th, 2018 at 7.40pm). The Terriers have had their issues going forward and they have rustled up just the ten goals in their eleven home games, but defensively they have been pretty solid with just the twelve shipped in those eleven games. They have taken a clean sheet in 45% of their home games and 70% of their home goals have been scored in the first half of their games. They have actually opened the scoring in seven of their eleven home games in the top flight this season. Both teams not to score in this game is probably going to take some favouritism.

West Ham News and Form

The Hammers have steadied the ship under David Moyes but they still have some relegation issues hanging over them. They are W3 D3 L1 in their last seven league games which is pretty good but they haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last three which suggests that they will be vulnerable. The Hammers have just the two clean sheets out on their travels this season. The Irons have drawn their last two away games, being held at Bournemouth and then turning out a 90-minute defensive display to hold out in a 1-1 draw at Spurs. That leaves them with just the one away win for the season in a W1 D5 L6 record. They have scored at least one goal in each of their last four away games, but have only netted 13 goals in their 12 away games this season. They have conceded an average of over two goals per game on the road. In the bet365 correct score market the 1-1 draw is an 11/2 option* (Betting Odds were taken January 10th, 2018 at 7.40pm) the same a 0-0. Only Southampton, West Brom and Stoke have collected fewer away points this season than West Ham have done. A win will put them above the Terriers in the table by a point.

Huddersfield v West Ham Head to Head

The Terriers are on a three-match winning streak at home against the Hammers but they did lose 2-0 away to them this season in what was the first ever Premier League match up. In the last seven contests between the two clubs, both teams have scored in just one of those games. Even though you are looking back to the early seventies, Huddersfield are unbeaten in four at home against the Irons.

Who will win – Huddersfield v West Ham Predictions

The draw will have appeal in this one because the Terriers should be able to put a decent fight in this one on home soil. West Ham still aren’t totally convincing, certainly not out on the road, so settle for a share of the spoils.

Shrewsbury v West Ham FA Cup Prediction & Betting Tips – 7th January 2018

West Ham

Shrewsbury v West Ham FA Cup, 7th January 2.00pm

This could be a tricky way tie for the Hammers who have not been carrying great form. They head off to face League One side Shrewsbury who are flying along so well in their division and they are carrying some fantastic home form as well. They will fancy their chances in causing an upset in this one. West Ham are even money to get the win, with the draw at 13/5 and Shrewsbury are at 3/1.

Shrewsbury v West Ham FA Cup Betting Tips

The Shrews should be up for this challenge. They are currently standing in second place in League One and look a solid shot for automatic promotion. They have remained undefeated in their last six games in the league and so are carrying some good form. They have only lost three league matches all season. Their stand out form has been at home. They have gone W10 D1 L1 at home in League One with clean sheets in 75% of those fixtures. It has been highly impressive stuff from them and under 2.5 goals at William Hill is worth considering in this one. Their form at the New Meadow reads W13 D1 L2 for the season and they are on a four-match winning streak. They have taken a couple of home wins to nil to get to this point in the competition. They have conceded in just two of their last nine home (two goals in total) which is a staggering amount of clean sheets and it makes this FA Cup tie really interesting. The Shrews incidentally are a quote of 11/2 to win to nil.

The Shrews have to play their second choice keeper Craig MacGillivray though because first choice, Dean Henderson wasn’t allowed to play by his parent club Manchester United. Remarkably the Shrews were tipped for relegation this season. This will be the first cup meeting between the two clubs. They have played four times in league contests, back in the old Division 2 and from that the record is even with two wins each. Just once in the last fourteen years have Shrewsbury managed to get past the third round of the tournament and this will be the first time that they have faced Premier League opposition in the third round since facing Everton in 2003. They beat the Toffees on that occasion, who were managed by who? Yes, David Moyes, the current West Ham boss.

West Ham have been having their struggles this season and they have gone out in the third round of the FA Cup in five of the last eight seasons. This is no easy game for them. They have only lost two of their last eight games in all competitions but two of the three wins that they collected in that stretch of games were at home. They have had a busy week too with a game on Tuesday and then on Thursday and it is likely that Moyes is not going to send out the strongest side. Interestingly, both Moyes and West Ham keeper Joe Hart both played for Shrewsbury. The Hammers have gone W1 D3 L4 in their last eight away fixture and they have only one clean sheet in their last nine. This could be a tough game for them and both teams not to score with William Hill is a 10/11 price. In the correct score market, 1-1 draw is the shortest-priced option at 11/2.

Who will win – Shrewsbury v West Ham FA Cup Predictions

The draw could have some appeal here because the shrews are playing some good stuff at the moment and will be confident. West Ham have to be a little nervy about this tricky away game and they may have to get this back to a replay to get through.

Tottenham v West Ham Prediction & Betting Tips, 4th January 2018

Tottenham

Tottenham v West Ham Premier League Preview, 4th January 8.00pm

Spurs had a pretty comfortable night down at the Liberty Stadium in midweek as they took a win over Swansea. That extended their winning streak in the league to three games and now they move on to squeeze in this extra fixture. The Hammers had a big night on Tuesday as they dramatically sunk West Brom in stoppage time. That was a big three points for the move them out of the drop zone. Tottenham are 2/7 odds on favourites to win with the draw at 5/1 and West Ham out at 11/1.

Tottenham News and Form

Spurs have won their last three games at Wembley now in the league and they have remained unbeaten in nine there. However, both teams to score at William Hill for 19/20 has some appeal in this one because the Lilywhites have collected just the one clean sheet in their last four league home games. Harry Kane was left out of the starting lineup against Swansea in midweek as Spurs won 2-0, but he did get on as a sub. Kane has six goals in his last four home games in the Premier League and he will be trading as the first goalscorer favourite for the match then and overall the Lilywhite are W6 D3 L1 on home soil this season. Spurs have scored 21 goals in their ten home games so far, picking up a clean sheet in four of them (eight goals conceded in total). 67% of the goals that Spurs have scored have cropped up in the second half of matches. Tottenham have scored in each of their last nine games now and they have scored in each of their last seven on home soil. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last three home fixtures.

West Ham News and Form

West Ham earned a big home win for themselves in midweek against West Brom on Tuesday and that saw them climb out of the relegation zone. They have gone unbeaten in their last two away games, netting three goals exactly in both of those a draw at Bournemouth and a win at West Ham. Their defence has become a big concern again, especially in this one against a top side, as the Irons have conceded seven goals in their last three games. Over 2.5 goals at William Hill is a price of 4/7 for this one and Andy Carroll netted a brace in their victory over the Baggies and he is a 7/2 option in the anytime goalscorer market. Three of the last four games between these have produced a 3-2 scoreline (two wins for Spurs and one for West Ham). A Spurs 3-2 correct score is a big 25/1 price in this one. West Ham have held their own against Tottenham recently but they are winless in three out on the road in the top flight against Spurs (D1 L2). Overall this season West Ham’s away form reads W1 D4 L6 and they have conceded an average of over two goals per game on the road.

Tottenham v West Ham Head to Head

These two have already met this season, with Spurs taking a 3-2 win at West Ham in the league, with the Hammers getting a revenge 3-2 win at Spurs in the EFL Cup. In the last six Premier League meetings things are even as the Lilywhites are on a W3 D1 L2 record from that. Five of the last seven meetings in all conditions have been over the 2.5 goal line and Tottenham are unbeaten in three home league games against the Irons (W2 D1).

Who will win – Tottenham v West Ham Predictions

Tottenham should go out and collect another win for themselves in this one as West Ham still looks thoroughly beatable under David Moyes. Tottenham have strong form going at home as well in the league and can take a win in this one, but it may be worth backing both teams to score though looking at recent games between them.

West Ham v West Brom Prediction & Betting Tips, 2nd January 2018

West Ham

West Ham v West Brom Premier League Preview, 2nd January 7.45pm

The Hammers still have a lot to do to improve their overall home form in the top flight this season and they remain very patchy on home soil. They have won just the three home fixtures so far in the top flight but they will fancy their chances against the Baggies. West Brom have had a terrible season out on the road with only the six points collected and just the one win on the board. West Ham are 4/5 to get the three points on the board, with the draw at 5/2 and West Brom at 7/2.

West Ham News and Form

The Hammers have gone W1 D1 L1 in their last three home games in the top flight so you are still pretty much unsure just what you are going to get from them. In that sequence of home games, they beat Chelsea, draw with Arsenal and then went and lost against Newcastle. That’s pretty unpredictable at best and after a bit of a defensive turn around, they started to concede a little more heavily again over the Christmas period, shipping three goals against both Newcastle and Bournemouth. Marko Arnautovic seems to be enjoying himself in front of goal at the moment and is a 7/4 anytime goalscorer option and just because the Hammers are so hit and miss still it is worth considering both teams to score at Paddy Power for a price of 4/6 for this clash. West Ham have an overall home record of W3 D2 L4 this season and they have only managed the ten goals in their nine home games going into this one. They have conceded at just over 1.5 goals per game on average. They finished the year in the relegation zone, so the David Moyes revival hasn’t happened so far.

West Brom News and Form

With West Brom showing up it is probably worth looking under 2.5 goals at Paddy Power for the game. Running in the correct score market at 13/2 odds, the 1-1 draw has plenty of appeal on it too and only a 1-0 result for West Ham is trading shorter. The Baggies have gone eight matches away from the Hawthorns without a win now and they have lost two of their last three. They have managed to score just one goal in their last three away games and that includes trips to Swansea and Stoke. So it is a hugely poor return from them and in their W1 D3 L6 record on the road this season, West Brom have managed just the five goals. Salomon Rondon has been responsible for two of those away goals and is a 5/2 anytime goalscorer option. The Baggies have been level at the break in five of their ten away games so far this season so could maybe dig in here for a half time draw at least. But they have failed to score in half of their away fixtures this season which is pretty terrible and all six of their away losses have either been by a one or a two goal margin.

West Ham v West Brom Head to Head

Each of the last four between these at West Ham have been drawn and there was a 0-0 tie between them earlier in the season when they met at the Hawthorns. The Baggies are unbeaten in their last three against West Ham (W1 D2) and have lost just one of their last seven against the Irons in all competitions. Four of the last six league meetings have ended in a draw.

Who will win – West Ham v West Brom Predictions

West Ham are worth backing in this one because of home advantage and nothing else really. The great revival under David Moyes hasn’t really gained momentum and the Baggies will be competitive, but the Hammers to win by a one goal margin should have appeal.

Bournemouth v West Ham Prediction & Betting Tips, 26th December 2017

West Ham

Bournemouth v West Ham Premier League Preview, 26th December 3.00pm

The Cherries really need to find a bit of home form to keep their season afloat. They have only won one their last six on home soil and it has been a really disappointing return from them at the Vitality. West Ham have bolstered their defence and may fancy their chances of scrapping out something in this fixture. The Cherries are 13/10 to take the win with Coral, with the Hammers going at 2/1 and the draw is at 23/10.

Bournemouth News and Form

The Cherries will be looking to snap a three match winless streak on home soil when they face up to West Ham on Boxing Day. They have taken just the one point from their last three at the Vitality, losing against Burnley and Liverpool in that sequence. The Cherries are only W2 D2 L5 at home this season in the top flight and haven’t been able to land any kind of positive consistency. Goals have been hard to come by for them as well with just the nine netted in their nine home games. They have just the two clean sheets on home soil as well and they haven’t managed one in any of their last three at the Vitality Stadium. Defensively they haven’t been terrible really and this has the look of going under 2.5 goals.

West Ham News and Form

The Hammers will be looking for further improvement under David Moyes. The Hammers got their first away win of the season in their last away fixture, which was out at Stoke, beating the Potters 3-0. That leaves West Ham with a W1 D3 L6 record out on their travels this season and W1 L3 in their last four. But can they build on that positive from their win Stoke? Marko Arnautovic is a good anytime goalscorer option for them at the moment. West Ham have averaged under a goal per game this season away from home and they have failed to score in five of their road games so far. 67% of their goals shipped on the road have come in the second half of matches. But they won’t be facing a potent Bournemouth attack in this one and could hang in there for at least a point.

Bournemouth v West Ham Head to Head

The Cherries took a win in this fixture last season and from the four previous Premier League meetings, things are even with two wins each. Three of those four meetings have gone over 2.5 goals as well. The Cherries are W1 D2 L1 in four previous home games against the Hammers.

Who will win – Bournemouth v West Ham Predictions

The draw may have appeal in this one. The Hammers have been doing much better, particularly at the back and can hold their own on the south coast. Bournemouth may just not have enough in them going forward to bag three points though.

West Ham v Newcastle Prediction & Betting Tips, 23rd December 2017

West Ham

West Ham v Newcastle Premier League Preview, 23rd December 3.00pm

The Hammers have started to find their feet in the league now having put together a three match unbeaten streak of form and winning impressively at Stoke on the weekend. They get back to home soil and can put further distance between themselves and the drop zone with three points against Newcastle. The Magpies start the weekend in the bottom three and are running in a major slump at the moment. West Ham are 21/20 to collect the win, with the draw at 232/10 and Newcastle at 13/5.

West Ham News and Form

The future seems to be a bit brighter for West Ham having strung together a three match undefeated streak of form in the top flight. They have gone W2 D1 with the two wins coming against Chelsea and last weekend out at Stoke. They are clearly more organized at the back and now have three straight clean sheets and the game at Stoke showed a bit of offensive punch from them as well. West Ham to win to nil at William Hill is a good proposition for the game. West Ham are W3 D2 L3 at home this season in the top flight and they are unbeaten in three on home soil (W1 D2). So they look as if they are going to hold their own in this one with Newcastle being so badly out of form and in the William Hill Correct Score market a West Ham 1-0 is a good 13/2 option while a 2-0 win for them is at 9/1. Two of West Ham’s three home wins have been by a one goal margin this season. The Hammers have only rattled off eight home goals this season with only 38% of their home games going above the 2.5 goal line, so this could be a low scoring game. Marko Arnautovic has a bit of form and is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option.

Newcastle News and Form

The Magpies are in heaps of trouble at the moment as they are on a four match losing streak. They lost 1-0 at Arsenal on the weekend and that is no goal from them in either of their last two games. Looking back they have gone D1 L8 now in their last nine games, failing to score in five of those games. So it is a terrible slump of form that they are on at the moment and their away record on the road reads W1 D2 L6. The Magpies have only scored the seven goals on their travels this season and 60% of those have come in the second half of matches. They have been leading at half time just once this season in the road and a half time draw at William Hill may not be a bad option. Dwight Gayle is the only Newcastle player to have managed more than one away goal this season and he only has two of them. Gayle is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option for the game. Both teams not to score at William Hill is worth considering for the fixture at 10/11. Back in August, the Magpies had an easy time against the out-of-form West Ham, beating them 3-0 but the tables look to have fully turned around for this meeting.

West Ham v Newcastle Head to Head

Newcastle took a big 3-0 home win over the Hammers back at the end of August and that has been back to back Premier League wins for the Magpies over the Hammers. However, West Ham have won their last two on home soil against them. Both teams have scored in just one of the last five league meetings between the two.

Who will win – West Ham v Newcastle Predictions

West Ham have started to get a bit of momentum going now and should be value to sink the magpies into further trouble. The Hammers not only have a bit of defensive steel creeping into their game but are looking more potent going forward. Newcastle can’t match them.

Arsenal v West Ham EFL Cup Prediction & Betting Tips – 19th December 2017

Arsenal

Arsenal v West Ham EFL Cup, 19th December 7.45pm

The Gunners go as favourites for this London derby EFL Cup quarter-final showdown. Given that they aren’t going to being looking at a Premier League title this season and with only European interest in the Europa League, then it stands to reason that the Gunners are probably going to be pretty interested in this. There have been signs of improvement from West Ham recently though and recently held the Gunners to a 0-0 draw in the Premier League. Arsenal are 4/9 to win, with the draw at 10/3 and West Ham at 11/2.

Arsenal v West Ham EFL Cup Betting Tips

The Gunners will be looking to go one better than they did in last season’s EFL Cup. They lost at this stage against Southampton last season and that tie was at home as well. The Gunners have had a fine season on home soil across all competitions, having only lost the one game throughout all competitions with a W11 D3 L1 record. The only loss in that sequence was against Manchester United in the league at the start of December. But they have responded to that with back to back wins there. Arsenal have collected five clean sheets in their last six games on home soil in all competitions and the Gunners to win to nil with William Hill should have a decent amount of appeal for the fixture. Considering that Arsenal face Liverpool one big league showdown on Friday night, what lineup will Arsene Wenger go with?

Arsenal’s progress through the EFL Cup this season has been at the expense of Doncaster and Norwich, the Gunners winning both of those ties on home by a one goal margin only. The Gunners to win by a one goal margin at William Hill is at odds of 3/1. The main options in the anytime goalscorer market are Alexandre Lacazette and Olivier Giroud the latter going to have more appeal as he has started both of their EFL Cup matches this season. These two met in the Premier League at the London Stadium just back on December 13th and despite the Gunners being on top, they were thwarted by a defensive well organised West Ham side and had to settle for a 0-0 draw. Arsenal are unbeaten in their last four games against West Ham (W3 D1) and they are on a seven match winning streak at home against them. Arsenal have scored at least three goals in each of their last five home games against West Ham, exactly three each in the last four.

The Hammers look to have steadied the ship recently under David Moyes with seven points from their last three Premier League games, which included wins over Chelsea and Stoke and the draw with Arsenal. So they have been much better at the back and they have taken a clean sheet in each of their last three games as well. West Ham have been a poor side away from home though with a W3 D3 L6 record on their travels in all competitions. However, their EFL Cup successes this season were on the road, taking a win at League Two side Cheltenham, before pulling out a suprise 3-2 win at Tottenham in the last round. You are looking at a price of 3/4 at William Hill on both teams to score to see the Irons challenge in the game at least and Marko Arnautovic seems to be coming in a bit of form at the moment and could be worth considering in the anytime goalscorer market.

Who will win – Arsenal v West Ham EFL Cup Predictions

Arsenal are justifiable odds-on favourites to make it through to the semi finals as they have been a very strong home force this season. They were the better of the two sides when they met in the league recently, but it wasn’t their day in front of goal. But they can get the job done here in a game which goes under 2.5 goals.

Stoke v West Ham Prediction & Betting Tips, 16th December 2017

Stoke

Stoke v West Ham Premier League Preview, 16th December 3.00pm

Will this be the last chance for Stoke boss Mark Hughes to save his job? The Potters were sunk again as they lost against Burnley in midweek to pick up their fourth defeat in their last five league fixtures. They are defensively vulnerable but will West Ham be able to produce enough out on the road to punish the Potters? Stoke are 21/20 to take the win, with the draw trading at 23/10 and West Ham are 13/5 to pick up maximum points.

Stoke News and Form

The Potters stay in a pretty bad slump as they lost again in midweek. They went down 1-0 at Burnley and that has left them with four defeats in their last five games and with just one win in their last seven played now. They have shipped at least two goals in five of their last seven games and they just can’t seem to hold out at the back. They have just the two clean sheets this season and on both occasions they won 1-0 against Arsenal and Watford. Their home form overall reads W3 D2 L3 this season and they snapped a winless streak with a 2-1 victory over the struggling Swansea last time out at the Bet365 Stadium. The Potters have scored in all but two of their home games this season and both teams to score at Bwin may be worth a flutter. Stoke only have the one clean sheet behind them on home soil and they have conceded at a rate of 1.9 goals per game on home soil this term. But under 2.5 goals is generally the way things go when these two meet and that is a price of 3/4 to get behind. The Potters are without a clean sheet in any of their last seven games home and away and are on a seven match streak at home without one.

West Ham News and Form

The Hammers are starting to show signs of defensive improvement under David Moyes. They followed up their victory over Chelsea last weekend with a really batting performance against Arsenal in the week. So there are signs that things are going to be getting better, but they still need to work on their goal output a bit. West Ham are still seeking their first away win of the season and they go into this one with a three match losing streak behind them on their travels and in that sequence they scored only the one goal. Overall this season out on the road in the top flight, the Hammers have picked up just a D3 L6 record. They have tallied only the six goals as well while they have shipped at a poor average of 2.3 goals per game as well. 83% of their goals away from home have come in the first half of matches while they have conceded 67% of their goals in the second half of games. There’s still a lot of work for them to do though and in the Bwin correct score market, the 1-1 draw is the shortest priced option at 11/2 followed by a 1-0 home win for the Potters at 13/2. The bookies aren’t expecting the Hammers to come good by the looks of things.

Stoke v West Ham Head to Head

The Potters do have form because they are unbeaten in their last eight Premier League games against the Hammers, although five of the last six have been drawn. Stoke are W2 D2 in their last four on home soil against the Londoners. Four of the last five have either ended in a 1-1 or a 0-0 draw.

Who will win – Stoke v West Ham Predictions

The Hammers have some poor away form going and they could slip in this one. Stoke have been far from brilliant this season but right now they have to pull up their socks and produce something because that relegation zone is getting ever closer. Home win as the Hammers have yet to prove themselves out on the road.
