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.
