This should be an entertaining London derby to look forward too. West Ham will be looking for a big three points in this one as they face up to the Lilywhites. That would give them a fantastic lift. Buy Spurs return after the international break having put together a strong three-match winning streak. Read our West Ham v Tottenham betting tips for more.
West Ham 10/3
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:52 p.m.)
The Hammers had their little positive spurt of form snapped with a 1-0 defeat out at Brighton just before the international break. That leaves them W2 D1 L1 in their last four league games. That, in turn, was after losing their opening four games of the season. Their home form reads just W1 D1 L2 for the season, but are undefeated in their last two on home soil.
They picked up a draw against Chelsea and then banked that big 3-1 success over Manchester United. So they have held their own against some of the top sides at home this season. All of West Ham’s home games this season (including this one) have been against sides currently in the top half of the table.
Defensively they have only the one clean sheet this season so are going to be at risk. For our West Ham v Tottenham betting tips were are looking at both teams to score at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:14 pm).
Recent games between these two have provided plenty of goals. Five of West Ham’s eight league games this season have made it above the goal line as well. They have won two of their last three games at home against Spurs and this would be a massive three points for them.
Spurs have put together a three-match winning streak, beating Brighton, Huddersfield and Cardiff. There are naturally going to be stiffer tests to come for them. Starting with this one and they won’t want to lose momentum in this London derby because next up for them comes Manchester City.
Tottenham have produced well on the road, winning four of their five away games. Their only blip was a 2-1 loss at Watford at the start of September. Over 2.5 goals is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:14 pm).
That appeals for West Ham v Tottenham betting tips because Spurs have scored at least two goals in all but one of their away games this season. They have found the back of the net in all eight of their league games this season. 75% of Tottenham’s league games this season have gone over 2.5 goals.
Spurs have averaged exactly two goals per away game this season, while they have taken a clean sheet in 40% of them. They have had some tight battles with West Ham recently though. Harry Kane is the 5/2 first goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:14 pm).
Tottenham got four points from their meetings with West Ham last season but they weren’t easy points. There was a 1-1 home draw for them after edging a tight away scrap 3-2. In the last four league meetings in this London derby, Spurs are W2 D1 L1 and they have lost two for their last three away trips to West Ham, both 1-0 losses. Five of the last eight games between them in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals.
The draw may not have some appeal in the game as West Ham have a good bit of home form behind them. They may well have enough in them to grind out a point and make life very difficult for the Lilywhites. Draw.

Brighton are still stuck on just the one win for the season and now have collected only the two points in their last five games. So they are struggling a bit at the moment. West Ham, in contrast, have rolled up their sleeves and will be high in confidence after doing a great number on Manchester United last weekend. Read our Brighton v West Ham betting tips for more.
West Ham 9/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 2nd, 2018 at 4:14 p.m.)
As it stands in the Premier League Brighton have committed more fouls on average per game than any other side this season. Troublingly for them to they have conceded an average of just under 17 shots per game against them this season and only Fulham and Burnley have worse numbers than that. So things aren’t happening at the moment for the Seagulls who have just a W1 D2 L4 record for the season. They have lost their last two, but they were tough games against Spurs and Man City.
Brighton’s home form for the season reads W1 D1 L1 where they have scored six goals. So that’s a good average of two per game and over 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 43/40 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from October 2nd, 2018 at 4:14 p.m.) which we feel is good value in our Brighton v West Ham betting tips. They haven’t kept a clean sheet this season at all so they are likely to ship at least one you feel.
West Ham have turned the corner it would seem with a great W2 D1 record not the board in their last three games. The wins were against Everton and Manchester United while the draw in that sequence was against Chelsea. So they have come through a couple of tough tests recently which they deserve credit for. Both of their league wins this season have come by a 3-1 scoreline. A West Ham 3-1 correct score option is at a chunky 25/1 odds while a more conservative 2-1 away win is at 11/1* (Betting Odds were taken from October 2nd, 2018 at 4:14 p.m.).
Marko Arnautovic has scored in two of their last three games and he is a pretty decent option at 7/4 to get on the scoresheet at any time* (Betting Odds were taken from October 2nd, 2018 at 4:14 p.m.). The Irons are W1 L2 out on the road and they don’t have a clean sheet on their travels, conceding eight goals in total. The two road defeats they suffered were against Arsenal and Liverpool so they weren’t easy ones. It doesn’t look too likely that they will get a clean sheet out of this and both teams to score is a good option for our Brighton v West Ham betting tips.
It was a great output last season for Brighton against West Ham as they posted back to back wins over the Irons. Not only that, they scored exactly three goals in both of those wins as well. There hasn’t been a great deal of head to head history between the two sides with West Ham 10-7 up overall with five draws.
West Ham looked to have turned the corner now and suddenly they look a bit of value to get behind. That’s a good bit of momentum that they have behind them going now and the Seagulls are just struggling a bit in comparison. Away win.

Last weekend in the Premier League Manchester United dropped more points as they were held to a home draw against the newly promoted Wolves. They head out on the road for the Saturday lunchtime kick-off as they face a West Ham side who look to be turning the corner. The irons have collected four points from their last two games after losing their first four matches. Read our West Ham v Manchester United betting tips for more.
Manchester United 8/11
West Ham 7/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 24th, 2018 at 11:24 p.m.)
So after four straight defeats at the start of the season, West Ham have collected four points in their last two games. Last weekend they dug in well on home soil to play out a 0-0 draw with Chelsea, despite getting only around 30% of possession in the game. That was a precious point for them and it was their first on home soil this season as well. West Ham have netted just the one home goal in their three home fixtures (D1 L2) and the natural option is to expect this to be a low-scoring game so under 2.5 goals is at even money* (Betting Odds were taken from September 24th, 2018 at 11:24 p.m.).
The halftime draw may well be worth a look in this one. All of the home goals that West Ham have conceded this season have been in the second half of matches and they have been at 0-0 in two of their three home fixtures. Marko Arnautovic is the top scorer for them this season with three goals and he is at 2/1 in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from September 24th, 2018 at 11:24 p.m.). A point out of this one for the Hammers on the back of the one against Chelsea would be another decent step of progress for them.
The Red Devils recorded back to back away wins at Burnley and Watford to get over their hump of back to back losses which they had suffered. But they dropped more points last weekend as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home against Wolves. The visitors were good for their point too. It leaves Manchester United with a W1 D1 L1 record from their three home games in the top flight this season. They’ve taken no clean sheet there, so they have done better on the road with a W2 D1 record. United have earned just one clean sheet overall this season.
In the bet365 correct score market a 1-1 draw option is at 13/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 24th, 2018 at 11:24 p.m.). Romelu Lukaku has scored in each of United’s three games on the road this season (total of four goals) and he is the obvious one to look for in the first goalscorer market. Lukaku is the first goalscorer favourite at 3/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 24th, 2018 at 11:24 p.m.). Manchester United have scored exactly two goals in each of their road games this term.
The Hammers picked up a draw last season in this corresponding fixture after having been torn apart at Old Trafford. West Ham have gone W1 D3 L2 in their last six Premier League fixtures against Manchester United. The Irons are W1 D1 L1 in their last three on home soil against the Red Devils. Both teams have failed to score in four of the last six league meetings.
The draw will have some appeal in this one as Manchester United have been grinding out results more than adding power and flair to proceedings. West Ham have a long way to go to get where they want to be, but digging in for a home point in this one could be another big point for them.
26th September 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
It has not been the easiest of seasons for West Ham but they will be looking for an easy time of things at home in the next round of the EFL Cup. They get a home fixture against Macclesfield who are rock bottom of League Two. Read our West Ham v Macclesfield betting tips for more.
West Ham 1/6
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 23rd, 2018 at 10:43 p.m.)
After their miserable start to the season, the Hammers have picked up four points from their last two Premier League games following a draw against Chelsea on the weekend. So the improvements are starting to happen for them and they are red-hot favourites to win this EFL Cup tie. In the last round of the EFL Cup West Ham collected a 3-1 away win at AFC Wimbledon and that’s part of a sequence this season where West Ham have not collected a single clean sheet. However, even with that in mind a West Ham to win to nil option is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken from September 23rd, 2018 at 10:43 pm). Even though they are likely to send out a severely under-strength side in this one, they should be more than comfortable against the bottom side in the top English tiers. In the bet365 correct score market a West Ham 2-0 is handily priced at 6/1 odds* (betting odds taken from September 23rd, 2018 at 10:43 pm).
As bad as West Ham’s season was looking, Macclesfield’s has been a lot worse. They have posted a D5 L7 record this season. They have needed a penalty shootout to get past Bradford and Walsall in the EFL Cup this season. With their inability to win matches you have to point a strong finger at their poor defensive record. They have yet to earn a clean sheet in any of their twelve games this term. They have scored in all but three of their games through to their credit but you are looking at a price of 11/10 odds* (betting odds taken from September 23rd, 2018 at 10:43 pm) on both teams to score in the match. But that doesn’t look too likely. Their away form this season reads D1 L5.
West Ham can go out and post a comfortable win in this one. While the game won’t be a huge draw for them, their squad can get a chance to express themselves and we are comfortable going to back the Irons to win to nil. The West Ham/West Ham half-time/ full-time option appeals too.

Chelsea will be looking to extend their perfect start to the new season as they step out in this London derby on the weekend. Will there Thursday night UEFA Europa League action starts affecting them? West Ham finally snapped out of their early season funk with a good three points out at Everton. Read our West Ham v Chelsea betting tips for more.
West Ham 17/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 20th, 2018 at 3:53 p.m.)
After four straight defeats at the start of the season, West Ham produced a good 3-1 win at Everton last weekend to break out of their slump. Their front line finally clicked with Andriy Yarmolenko getting a brace and Marko Arnautovic getting their third. So finally that was the kind of output that was expected of them after their big summer investments. There should be enough in this game to over 3.5 goals at 6/4 odds* (betting odds taken on September 20th, 2018 at 4:10 pm). Their two home games this season have yielded one-goal margin losses against Bournemouth and Wolves.
The Irons have actually won only one of their last six home games in the top flight now (W1 D2 L3) so aren’t that reliable. Of the five league goals that they have scored this season all but one of them have come in the first half of matches and they have yet to be trailing at halftime in a home game this term. So the halftime draw with bet365 at 6/4 odds* (betting odds taken on September 20th, 2018 at 4:10 pm) is worth a look in our West Ham v Chelsea betting tips. Arnautovic is their top scorer for the season with three goals and he is at 21/10 in the anytime goalscorer market.
The Blues are five wins from five games for the season but they now start that tricky balance of Thursday night European games and Sunday domestic fixtures. It was suspected that new boss Maurizio Sarri could be in for a slow start in getting his new style implemented. But the Blues have quickly gotten better and better as the season has gone on and they have scored at least two goals in each of their fixtures so far. In the bet365 correct score market a Chelsea 2-1 option is at 8/1 odds* (betting odds taken on September 20th, 2018 at 4:10 pm) which has appeal as we are going to look at both teams to score.
Chelsea have just the one clean sheet in their last four games so we are backing both teams to score at 4/6 odds for our West Ham v Chelsea betting tips* (betting odds taken on September 20th, 2018 at 4:10 pm). Eden Hazard has been in tremendous form this season and he got a hattrick last time out as Chelsea powered their way past Cardiff. The Blues are playing some really fluent attacking football at the moment and Hazard is at the center of everything. Hazard is the top scorer for them this season with a five-goal haul and is the 11/10 anytime goalscorer favorite* (betting odds taken on September 20th, 2018 at 4:10 pm). Pedro is the only other player to have netted more than one for them (3).
In last season’s Premier League meetings West Ham actually came out on top as they picked up four points against the Blues. That was a good return from them and in the last six top-flight meetings between the London sides, things are even with two wins each and two draws. West Ham have won two of their last three home league games against the Blues.
West Ham finally snapped their losing streak last weekend, but Chelsea have looked very strong pouring forward this season with Eden Hazard at the center of everything. They should be able to expose what is still a very flimsy Irons back line. Chelsea to win by a one-goal margin looks solid.

Everton are one of the few undefeated teams left in the top flight this season returning to action after the international break. They will be keen to keep things that way as they get a home game against West Ham on the weekend. The Hammers are stuck without a point on the bottom of the pile. How badly they need a win on the board to try and get some momentum going. Read our Everton v West Ham betting tips for more.
Everton even money
West Ham 5/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 13th, 2018 at 8:16 p.m.)
Steady stuff it has been from Everton this season in the Premier League with a W1 D3 record. They have thrown points away though in their away games. At home so far this season they posted a win against Southampton and then had to fight back to get a 1-1 draw on the board against Huddersfield. So it hasn’t all quite clicked under new boss Marco Silva, but they do have some positives in place like Richarlison who unfortunately for them, has to sit this out. It is final match of a three-match suspension. In the correct score market for the game and Everton 1-0 is at 8/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on September 13th, 2018 at 8:16 p.m.).
There has not been a clean sheet from them yet this season and we are going to look at both teams to score at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 13th, 2018 at 8:16 p.m.). The Toffees have good form as they lost just one of their last ten Premier League home games. They have home form against West Ham too having scored at least two goals in all but two of their last ten at Goodison Park against them. Everton are also undefeated in eleven of their last dozen Premier League home against the Irons.
A four-match losing streak for the start of the season was not expected from the Hammers. But that is where Manuel Pellegrini’s men are at. The Hammers have already conceded ten goals across their four games, with no clean sheets. So they are going to be under pressure here for now because of their weak defence. Over 2.5 goals on the game is at 21/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 13th, 2018 at 8:16 p.m.). Both of West Ham’s away games this season have gone over the goal line. The Hammers have conceded a total of seven goals in their two road games so far.
They have some injury problems in the squad and they are clearly still looking to find their right balance and formation under Pellegrini. West Ham are currently three points worse of than they were at this stage of last season’s poor campaign. West Ham have only come up with the two goals in the Premier League this season and both of their goals were in the first half of matches. Seven of their ten goals conceded have happened in the second half of games. West Ham striker Marko Arnautovic is their shortest priced option in the anytime goalscorer market at 15/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 13th, 2018 at 8:16 p.m.).
There was a home win for each in last season’s Premier League meetings and three of the last four meetings have ended in a home win (D1). Things are even with two wins each and two draws between them in their last six top-flight classes. Everton have won their last two at Goodison Park against the Hammers to nil.
At some point, the fortunes of West Ham are going to change but we don’t see a win happening for them at Goodison Park. Everton have been persistent and hard to beat and we are going to back them for a home win in our Everton v West Ham betting tips.
15th September 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
A lot of speculation has been flying around about Jose Mourinho and how much longer he is going to be in his job at Manchester United. A bit of pressure was released as his Red Devils banked an away win at Burnley just before the international break. That avoided three straight defeats after back to back losses against Brighton and Tottenham.
But now it is West Ham’s Manuel Pellegrini who looks to be the one in the most amount of trouble at the moment and bookmakers are making a shift towards him now. Beside Mourinho, the Chilean is only one of two other current Premier League managers to have won the title (Pep Guardiola) but West Ham have had a shocker this season.
The Irons have fallen to four straight defeats as they went into the international break following a 1-0 home loss against the newly promoted Wolves. Defensively they have shipped ten goals in their four games and have produced just two themselves. That is spite of them spending over £100m in the summer in improving their defence and forward ranks. All that summer signing led to some great optimism that times were going to change for the better for them.
But Pellegrini is now at 7/2 with Coral in the Premier League Next Manager To Leave market* (betting odds taken on September 5th, 2018 at 5:56 pm) and has admitted that his side have been playing very badly.
“The betting suggests Manuel Pellegrini will not see out the season at West Ham following his side’s poor start to the campaign where they have failed to win a point so far,” said Coral’s John Hill.
“We have seen a flurry of bets over the last couple of days on Pellegrini being the first managerial casualty in the Premier League this season where he has only Jose Mourinho ahead of him in the betting.”
Jose Mourinho 3/1
Manuel Pellegrini 7/2
Mark Hughes 6/1
Rafa Benitez 7/1
Neil Warnock 8/1
Claude Puel 10/1
Sean Dyche 20/1
David Wagner 20/1
* (betting odds taken on September 5th, 2018 at 5:56 pm)
The Hammers have had two very difficult away games, suffering big defeats out at Liverpool and then Arsenal. But it will be their lack of return on home soil which has raised the biggest red flags. They suffered a 1-2 reversal against Bournemouth in their first home game of the season, despite taking the lead and then there was the 0-1 loss to Wolves, conceding the goal in the 90th minute to totally deflate them.
After the international break is done, West Ham face a tough run of too. They make a trip to the undefeated Everton before facing back to back home games against Chelsea and Manchester United. After a trip to Brighton, they then host Spurs.
6th September 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
It has been a horrendous start to the season for West Ham after a big summer of investments. Their defence has been a shambles and they badly need to stop the rot. Wolves got huge praise last weekend from their effort in holding Manchester City to a draw. They are still on the hunt for their first win of the season. Will it happen here? Read our West Ham v Wolves betting tips for more.
West Ham 6/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
What next for the Hammers? It is three defeats in three games this season for them and they have shipped nine goals. West Ham have produced some really naive defending and have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three games. That has to give Wolves a shot at getting something out of this game.
For our West Ham v Wolves betting tips we are going straight to the over 2.5 goals option at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). There have been over 2.5 goals in each of West Ham’s last four games. So this should be a good open game with goals in it. The Iron aren’t going to turn into a defensive powerhouse overnight.
It has just been a mess from them at the back and in their only home game this season they suffered a 2-1 reverse against Bournemouth despite having taken the lead in the match. Marko Arnautovic does look their best route to goal and he is at 13/8 in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.).
He is actually worth a poke in the first goalscorer market as he has scored the opening goal of each of his last two league games. West Ham posted a W7 D6 L6 record at home last season, and right now they really need to get some momentum. They actually have a decent-looking squad there to be able to do it.
Wolves are still looking for their first win of the season but they applied themselves so well last weekend in holding out for a 1-1 draw against Manchester City. Wolves were good value for it as well as they never lost sight of their tactics and discipline. Can they get that first win of the season on the board though?
Their only trip out on the road this season was a visit to Leicester in a Midlands derby which they lost 2-0. Raul Jimenez is their shortest priced anytime goalscorer option at 13/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.) and he has looked very good for them so far.
They certainly looked good enough based on last weekend’s performance to go and avoid defeat in London this weekend. They also went out on the road and picked up a solid EFL Cup away win at Championship side Sheffield Wednesday. The only question really is whether or not they can find that extra to get them that elusive win?
There is a good Asian Handicap option of a Wolves +0.25 for 7/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). That would pay out at half win if they were to pick up a draw in the match and a full win if they pick up maximum points.
The last time these two were together in league action was in the 2010/11 Premier League season with West Ham collecting four points from the two games. There have only been four previous Premier League meetings with West Ham holding a W2 D1 L1 record from them. They did meet in a 2016 FA Cup tie which West Ham won 1-0 at home.
We are going to settle on the draw for this one. Wolves just quite can’t find that winning touch at the moment but they should be able to hold out against a West Ham side who look a total shambles in defence.
30th August 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
There is plenty of betting opportunities around in midweek with the second round of the EFL Cup kicking off. Most of the games are on Tuesday, August 28th, but a few are on Wednesday 29th. This is the round where all Premier League sides who are not involved in European action this season, join the fray.
It is usually the first chance that Premier League managers have to rest some of their regular starting eleven. So you will see a lot of understrength top-flight teams heading out into action in midweek for this low-priority tournament and that could lead to some great betting opportunities in backing underdogs.
Here are some EFL Cup Second Round Betting Odds & Predictions for games involving Premier League sides.
We can only predict that this is going to be a tight battle, between a somewhat hardened Swans side and an understrength Palace. The thing about the Eagles is that if they don’t have Wilfried Zaha knocking around then it is hard to see where the goals are going to come from. He has scored two of their three Premier League goals this season for example. It’s unlikely that he’ll be used unless he really has to be. Swansea aren’t a side who appear to be stacked with goals but they have a decent chance of digging in here, in one of the more high-profile games of the second round. We have a feeling this will need more than 90 minutes and Swansea To Qualify at 5/4 odds* (betting odds taken on August 26th, 2018 at 11:25 pm) appeals greatly.
West Ham have had a dreadful start to the season and you aren’t going to see much more naive defending around than from them at the moment. Manuel Pellegrini appears to have a bigger task ahead of him than expected. They have enough quality to get everything settled down eventually but with they have their cage rattled at Wimbledon on Tuesday night? Given the number of goals that the Hammers have given up this season, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise. But the Dons just aren’t carrying any kind of form with them and we can see the depth that West Ham have just winning out on the day. We see enough to back West Ham at a -1.25 Asian Handicap.
Cardiff have so far been Cardiff. Tight, organized, combative. Everything you would expect from them under boss Neil Warnock. They have taken two points from their three Premier League games this season but they haven’t managed to come up with a goal just yet. That’s going to be problematic for them unless they sort things out quickly. With their Premier League survival a higher priority than this, then we have to look at Norwich to pull something out of the bag in this one. This is a chance for the Canaries to blow off steam and even though they have had some poor defensive displays this season, they are facing a side who won’t exactly give to threat too much. Norwich to Qualify as at 13/8 odds* (betting odds taken on August 26th, 2018 at 11:25 pm).
With their first win of the Championship having been landed on the weekend, SToke will be feeling a bit better about themselves. So they will be up for the challenge here against Premier League Huddersfield and we have to say that we can’t overlook the 6/5 odds appeal on Stoke to win outright* (betting odds taken on August 26th, 2018 at 11:25 pm). They are at home and taking on a Terriers side who aren’t blessed with a particularly deep squad and who are out of form as well. There can’t be too much interested in this for the Terriers. Home win.
Nottingham Forest have gone unbeaten for the new season in the Championship and so because of that, and because they are at home where they have to be value to throw down a big old challenge to the Magpies. Newcastle really looked as if the needed to make some serious transfers over the summer to strength not only the core but their depth as well. They won’t be at full strength here and that will leave them somewhat vulnerable. This is probably going to be a tight tussle, but the value for us is on Nottingham Forest To Qualify at even money* (betting odds taken on August 26th, 2018 at 11:25 pm)

West Ham’s start to the new season couldn’t have gone worse and after a summer of big investment, things are just not happening for them. That means they get a tricky game out on the road against League One side Wimbledon who will be targeting a pretty big scalp in this EFL Cup tie. Read our AFC Wimbledon v West Ham betting tips for more.
West Ham 3/4
AFC Wimbledon 15/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from August 25th, 2018 at 8:15 p.m.)
League One side Wimbledon haven’t quite found their rhythm yet this season with a W2 D2 L2 record produced from their six games played in all competitions. They took a 2-1 home loss sign Sunderland on the weekend in the league and that means that they have just one point from three home games played this season. Wimbledon were out on the road in the first round of the EFL CUp as they posted a 2-1 success out at Portsmouth.
Only in one of their six matches played this season have they managed to score more than one goal. Even though they are taking on a West Ham side who have been leaking goals left, right and centre, the temptation is to go with both teams not to score at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 25th, 2018 at 8:15 p.m.). It’s not been particularly high output from Wimbledon.
AFC Wimbledon and West Ham have never met before.
The Hammers would never have expected this start to the season that they have had. Three straight Premier League defeats to open the season with and it’s not only that, it is the fact that they have conceded nine goals already in three games. That was after improving their defence in the transfer market over the summer. Two of their three games were tough ones out at Liverpool and Arsenal, but still.
So they will be looking to kick themselves into gear and frankly, a win at this point, any kind of win for them would give them a massive boost. A West Ham 2-0 correct score option is there at 7/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 25th, 2018 at 8:15 p.m.) and does appear to be about the right mark. The Hammers do have a deep enough squad to handle changes to the starting eleven in this one.
It has been an embarrassing start to the season from West Ham and they have to be at risk here as Pellegrini shuffles the pack. However, AFC Wimbledon aren’t carrying great form so we have to go with the Hammers to squeeze their way through.
