West Ham continue to have pretty mixed form behind them at the moment having alternated between a win and a loss in their last four EPL games. They will fancy their chance of three points here against Huddersfield who edged closer to relegation with another loss last weekend. Read our West Ham v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
West Ham 8/15
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 14th, 2019 at 8.10 p.m.)
West Ham took a bit of a hit last weekend in a 2-0 loss against the relegation-threatened Cardiff. That continued some poor away form that they have been on. They have been in pretty decent shape on home soil though. West Ham have taken back to back home wins in the top flight, beating Newcastle and Fulham. They are undefeated in their last five on home soil (W3 D2) and that is part of an average W7 D3 L5 home record that they have taken this season.
West Ham have averaged 1.5 goals per home game, with a clean sheet in only 20% of their home fixtures. Five of their seven home wins record this season have been by a two-goal margin. West Ham have netted in each of their last five home games, scoring at least two in each of their last two. The Irons have scored 61% of their home goals in the second half of games.
There was a 1-1 draw when the two met back in November
West Ham have won three of the last four meetings (D1)
The Hammers have won their last three at home against the Terriers
Both teams have scored in just two of the last six meetings
The Terriers suffered a 2-0 loss against Bournemouth last weekend. That is back to back defeats from them. Huddersfield have lost seven of their last eight leagues going. In their last four games, home and away, the Terriers have managed to produce just the one goal. Away from home, their record for the season is at W1 D3 L10. They are on a three-match losing streak on their travels.
They haven’t scored in any of their last five road games and in total this season they have only managed the eight away goals. Each to their last four games, home and away have ended under 2.5 goals. Fulham are the only side with a worse away record than the Terriers. They are the lowest scoring side in the top flight by a long way though.
The Hammers can produce enough here on home soil to give themselves three points. The challenge of Huddersfield isn’t likely to be testing enough to deny the Londoners. Home win.

Cardiff start the weekend back in the relegation zone after a loss against Arsenal last time out. That left them with three straight league defeats and in some trouble still. West Ham will show up having won two of their last three having comfortable taken a victory over Newcastle last weekend. Read our Cardiff v West Ham betting tips for more.
West Ham 6/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 6th, 2019 at 7:38 p.m.)
Cardiff were 2-0 losers at Wolves last weekend. That was their third straight league defeat and it leaves them at W2 D1 L5 in their last eight. They have not found any joy at home recently either having lost their last two on home soil in the top flight. This season Cardiff are W5 D2 L8 on home soil. They have shipped a total of eight goals across their last two home games, which were fixtures against Watford and Everton. It has been just one goal in their last three league games played now for Cardiff.
Cardiff have scored 16 goals in their 15 home games this season, but their defence hasn’t been good. They have conceded at over two goals per game on average which is hurting them badly. The Bluebirds have managed to produced just the one win in their last six on home soil, which was a 2-0 success over Bournemouth, one of four home clean sheets that they have earned this season. 67% of Cardiff’s home league games have gone above 2.5 goals. The Welsh club have conceded at least two goals in each of their three league games, home and away.
West Ham took a comfortable 3-1 home win over Cardiff earlier this season
The Hammers have won six of the last seven meetings in all competitions
Cardiff have no clean sheet in seven against the Hammers
West Ham have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven against Cardiff
The Hammers earned a good 2-0 home win over Newcastle last weekend. While that is their second win in their last three games (L1) it is just one of three taken in their last eight in the top flight, home and away (D2 L3). Away from home, this season in the EPL West Ham are at W4 D3 L7 and they have not managed to produce too much on their recent travels either. West Ham have taken just one point from the last fifteen available to them away from home. They scored just the one goal in those five games as well.
So things have not been happening for them away from home at all. The Irons have scored 14 goals on their travels at an average of exactly one goal per game. They have conceded an average of 1.5 per game. Less than half of their away fixtures have gone over the 2.5 goal line. West Ham will be looking for just their second away clean sheet of the season this weekend. The Hammers are on a six-match away streak with no clean sheet recorded. They have conceded 63% of their road goals in the second half of fixtures this season.
Cardiff may be able to dig out a point in this one because the Hammers haven’t been very good away from home recently. The draw does sit nicely as a proposition in the match outright.

The Hammers are still pushing towards landing a top half of the table finish this season. They have been pretty solid on home soil lately as well. Newcastle have been enjoying a much better time of things lately and have started to pull well away from the drop zone. Read our West Ham v Newcastle betting tips for more.
West Ham evens
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 27th, 2019 at 6:06 p.m.)
The Hammers earned a solid 3-1 home win over Fulham in their last home fixture. That took them out to a four-match undefeated streak of home form currently. They have lost just one of their last seven (W3 D2) on home soil, so have been fairly reliable, even though they have a clean sheet in just 14% of home games. West Ham have a W4 D1 L1 record against sides currently in the bottom half of the table this season on home soil, which has been a good return.
Their overall home record is W6 D3 L5. West Ham have scored 21 and have conceded 20 home goals this season. 50% of their home games incidentally have finished over 3.5 goals. Four of the six home wins that they have recorded have been by a two-goal margin. They are currently on a four-match scoring streak at home. Of the goals which they have produced at home in the top flight this season, 67% of them have been after the halftime break. Surprisingly West Ham have only opened the scoring in five home games.
West Ham were 3-0 winners over Newcastle earlier this season
Newcastle were on a three-match winning streak prior to that against the Hammers
West Ham have won two of their last three home games against the Magpies
Each of the last four meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Newcastle took a win over Burnley on Tuesday night to give them back to back Premier League wins. They have really been upping their form lately with a W4 D1 L1 record in their last six played. It is has to be noted that each of the wins in that sequence though have been on home soil.
This season on their travels they are just W2 D6 L5. Their two away successes were both against sides currently in the bottom six in the table. On the flip side, each of their away losses have been against the current top-six. Newcastle have managed just the 10 away goals this season. Only 38% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals.
The Magpies have earned a clean sheet in 31% of home games. The Magpies have also been level at the break in 9 of 13 away games. Newcastle have scored 80% of their away goals in the first half of matches, conceding 69% of away goals in the second half of games.
Newcastle can keep the score down in this fixture and with a bit of renewed confidence, they should be able to avoid defeat. West Ham are in some decent home form and don’t look like losing, so the draw looks the best option.
28th February 2019 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Hammers have been struggling to put wins on the board recently in the top flight, but their home form hasn’t been all that bad. They will be looking for a good three points on Friday as they play host to the relegation-threatened Fulham. Read our West Ham v Fulham betting tips for more.
West Ham 5/6
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 18th, 2019 at 11:44 p.m.)
The Hammers have only picked up the one win in their last seven league games, so are struggling for some momentum at the moment. Their last two Premier League games have both ended in a 1-1 draw, those results coming against Liverpool and Crystal Palace. West Ham are undefeated in their last three league home games, winning two of those. Overall on home soil this season the Hammers are W5 D3 L5. They have scored an average of 1.4 goals per home games, managing a clean sheet in just 15% of home fixtures.
46% of their home fixtures have gone over 3.5 goals so West Ham’s home games have been entertaining. Overall home and away the Hammers are without a clean sheet in four league games now. Just twice have they been ahead at the halftime break on home soil. West Ham have produced a W3 D1 record in their four home games this season against sides currently sitting 13th or lower in the table.
West Ham took a 2-0 away win at Fulham back in December
Fulham have won the last two Premier League home games against West Ham
Five of the last six meetings have ended up over 2.5 goals
West Ham have won four of their last six games home and away against Fulham
The Cottagers are a massive relegation trouble with five defeats in their last six games played. The one bright moment in that sequence of games was a home success over Brighton back at the end of January. All four of their league wins that they have produced have been at home. Away from home, the Cottagers are just D2 L11. There are currently on at there are currently on a three-match losing streak away from Craven Cottage and have taken just one point in their last 11 away top-flight fixtures.
While they have done all right in front of goal at home, Fulham have still only produced eight away goals all season. They suffered a 2-0 reverse in their last away fixture which was a Crystal Palace. Fulham have conceded an average of 2.5 goals per game against them away from home this season. They have managed to take just the one clean sheet all season away from home. Fulham have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last six games home and away, and they have been losing at half-time in nine of their 13 away fixtures.
We have been waiting all season for Fulham to turn the corner and is just not happening for them. West Ham are not in any great form at the moment but they should have enough about them to still pick up the three points. Home win.
19th February 2019 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Eagles got themselves a good three points against Fulham last weekend but are still only the four points from the drop zone. There’s work to do still. West Ham have found wins hard to come by recently, but they got themselves a well-earned point against Liverpool on Monday night. Read our Crystal Palace v West Ham betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 3/1
West Ham 6/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 5th, 2019 at 11:38 p.m.)
Crystal Palace secured a good 2-0 home win over Fulham last weekend. Their last two Premier League wins incidentally have been by a 2-0 scoreline. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last three league victories. The win over Fulham last weekend leaves Palace at W3 D1 L2 in their last six at Selhurst Park. Those two goals as well took their poor home goal tally up to just eight for the season. Only 17% of league games at Selhurst Park this season have gone over 2.5 goals.
In four of their last six games in which they have avoided defeat, they have taken a clean sheet. They have been good defensively as the Eagles average under a goal per game against them on home soil. They have tallied up a clean sheet in 42% of their home games. Of the 11 home goals that they have conceded, all but one have been in the second half of matches. Southampton and Huddersfield are the only two sides currently with worse EPL home records than the Eagles.
West Ham earned a 3-2 win over Palace earlier this season
Palace are winless in seven EPL games against the Hammers (D3 L4)
West Ham are W3 D1 in their last four trips to Selhurst Park
Seven of the last nine league meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Every now and again, West Ham play out of their skin. They did it on Monday in picking up a 1-1 draw against Liverpool. That followed a brilliant defensive display in a 1-0 home win over Arsenal in their previous home game. Sandwiched between those two results though were away defeats at Bournemouth and Wolves. West Ham are currently on a three-match losing streak away from home. Those games where they look brilliant just don’t happen often enough for them.
Overall this season on their top-flight travels West Ham are a W4 D2 L6 this season. Three of those four away wins have been against sides currently 15th or lower. Crystal Palace are 14th. West Ham have conceded an average of 1.6 goals away from home with only the two away clean sheets recorded all season. The Hammers have no clean sheet in their last four away games and haven’t scored in any of their last three away from home.
West Ham are really hit and miss on their travels. It may be a good time to back the Eagles to come up with another home success. It is likely to end up being a low scoring game. Palace to win by a one-goal margin fits nicely.

West Ham 13/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 29th, 2019 at 4:59 p.m.)
Has all of the transfer speculation over Marko Arnautovic ( did actually sign a contract extension) upset the Hammers? They have suffered back-to-back defeats after losing heavily at Wolves on Tuesday, the Hammers going down 3-0. It is back to home soil for them in their weekend game where they hold a W5 D2 L5 record this season.
They did come up with an impressive win in their last home fixture, West Ham producing a fine defensive display to collect a 1-0 victory over Arsenal. That is four points collected from their last two home league fixtures for West Ham. The Hammers have actually done okay against some of the better sides this season. They have beaten both Arsenal and Manchester United, and have held out for a draw against Chelsea on home soil.
West Ham have produced 17 goals in their home games, conceding 18. They have scored in four of their last five home games. They have struggled a bit at the back as they have taken just two clean sheets so far on home soil. 50% of West Ham’s home games have made it over 2.5 goals, and the Hammers have been level the halftime break in exactly half of their dozen home fixtures. West Ham have scored 76% of their home goals this season after the halftime break.
Liverpool crushed West Ham 4-0 earlier this season
The Reds have scored exactly four goals in each of their last four games against the Hammers
West Ham are winless in five EPL games against the Reds
Each of the last six meetings have ended up over 2.5 goals
After having seen Manchester City suffer a shock defeat at Newcastle on Tuesday night, Liverpool failed to capitalise on that big opportunity as they could only manage a 1-1 home draw against Leicester on Wednesday. That was only the second time at home this season that Liverpool failed to win a fixture. But it is back out on the road for the Reds on the weekend as they try and keep their title challenge going.
Away from home this season, Liverpool are W9 D2 L1 for the term. After suffering a defeat at Manchester City at the start of January, Liverpool responded in their following away game by scraping out a 1-0 victory over Brighton. Since the start of the New Year, the Reds just are showing signs perhaps of struggling more than they were.
That could be just a bit of nitpicking because they have strung together such a tremendously strong season. On their travels in the top flight this season Liverpool have returned 23 goals which is just under an average of two per game. They have been so defensively strong season as well, having conceded just seven goals in their 12 away fixtures.
The Reds have earned a clean sheet in exactly half of their away games, and exactly have their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. Here is another one, exactly 50% of Liverpool’s away games has seen Liverpool win to nil. Liverpool have scored in all of their road games this season have only twice been trailing the halftime break. Of their away, goals scored 75% have been in the second half of fixtures. But they have conceded 71% of their away goals after the halftime break as well.
Liverpool have shown some proven qualities to be able to grind out away wins this season. It may be more of the same for them in this Monday night trip to London. Liverpool to win to nil doesn’t look a bad option for the evening.

West Ham 11/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 25th, 2019 at 11:44 p.m.)
Wolves took a dramatic 4-3 victory at home against Leicester in their last Premier League fixture. That moved them onto a W5 D2 L5 record on home soil in the top flight. What the victory did as well, was it snapped a two-match losing streak that they were on at home. So that was a big result for Wolves with Diogo Jota netting a hat-trick in the game. Wolves have scored 16 goals at home this season and have conceded 18. Just 33% of their home games have made it over the 2.5 goals line this season. A large part of that is because Wolves have earned a clean sheet in a quarter of their home fixtures.
They haven’t managed to dig out a clean sheet in any of their last three on home soil, actually conceding at least two goals in each of those fixtures. Six of the nine League wins that Wolves have earned this season have all been by a one-goal margin. Of the home goals that Wolves outscored, 75% of them have been in the second half of fixtures. Just twice have they been leading at the halftime break on home soil. Wolves have conceded the opening goal in seven of their 12 home fixtures this season. Victory for them at home on Tuesday would really solidify their place inside the top 10.
Wolves and a 1-0 away win at West Ham at the start of September
From the five previous EPL fixtures, things are even with two wins each and one draw
Both teams have scored in just two of the last six meetings
Each of the last four games between have ended under 2.5 goals
West Ham have been on a bit of a rollercoaster with their results lately as they are W2 D1 L3 in their last six League fixtures. West Ham have struggled on the road recently having lost back-to-back games against Burnley and then Bournemouth by 2-0 score lines. Before that the way slump they have been on a three-match winning streak on their travels, unbeaten in five. The overall way record that West Ham have produced in the EPL this season is W4 D2 L5.
West Ham have produced 13 goals away from home this season, conceding 16. Less than half of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. The Hammers have failed to take a clean sheet in any of their last three games on the road. Overall this season they have taken a clean sheet in 18% of away games, but they have failed to score in 36% of road games. Victory would lift the Hammers above Wolves in the standings and a good finish in midweek action as high as seventh.
Wolves are capable of pulling out the goods on home soil in this one. Both can be a bit hit and miss, but the home side may just have that extra bit of intensity with the crowd behind them. Home win.
