West Ham v Burnley Prediction & Betting Tips, 10th March 20188th March 2018 / lee
West Ham v Burnley Premier League Preview, 10th March 3.00pm
A significant slump in form has left West Ham just the three points above the drop zone heading into the weekend so they have been putting a lot of pressure back on themselves. They get a home game against a Burnley side who finally managed to snap their long winless streak of form with success at Turf Moor over Everton last weekend. Another loss for the Hammers could heap massive pressure on them.
West Ham v Burnley Betting Odds*
West Ham 5/4, Draw 2/1, Burnley 5/2* (Betting Odds taken at 11:39 p.m. on March 6th, 2018)
West Ham News and Form
A win at home on the weekend would certainly ease a bit of pressure off the shoulders of West Ham. They have lost three of their last four games, but each of those defeats were away from home. They won their last home fixture, a 2-0 success over Watford and that has left them undefeated in their last four home games (W2 D2). Overall for the season they are W5 D4 L4 in the top flight at home but with them only having taken one clean sheet in their last eleven league games, even against a low scoring side like Burnley they are going to be a little vulnerable and therefore it is worth taking a punt on both teams to score at Coral for 8/11 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:58 p.m. on March 7th, 2018). Surprisingly though only 38% of West Ham’s home games have gone above the 2.5 goal line so it’s worth sticking under. Each of their last three home games have finished beneath the goal line, despite the Hammers having scored in each of their last five home fixtures. Almost 70% of their home goals this season have been in the second half of matches and the Hammers have been level at half time in seven of their home games.
Burnley News and Form
The Clarets collected a 2-1 home win over Everton last weekend and that finally snapped their winless streak which was at eleven games. The Clarets have struggled on the road to put wins on theboard though and they are without one in their last six road games (D4 L2). They went down 1-0 at Swansea in their last Premier League away game and you would have or expect that they will keep this tight. They have scored just the twelve goals in their fourteen road games, while they have conceded an average of a goal per game. Just 29% of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. The Clarets have actually failed to score in 43% of their away games this term so expect this to be low scoring. In the Coral correct score market, the 1-1 draw is right at 5/1 odds, the joint-shortest option as a West Ham 1-0 victory. Burnley have scored 67% of their home goals in the first half of away games and have conceded 71% of their away goals after the half time break. Six times this season they’ve been level at 0-0 at half time in road games.
West Ham v Burnley Head to Head
There was a 1-1 draw played out between them earlier in the season and that leave the Hammers unbeaten in their last seven games against Burnley in all competitions. So that’s a good streak for them and they have won four of the five previous Premier League clashes in all of that. The Irons have won their last two on home soil against the Clarets in the top flight, both 1-0 victories.
Who will win – West Ham v Burnley Predictions
West Ham may be worth backing on home soil to get the three points in this one. They need to ease some pressure off themselves with a good performance and Burnley haven’t done enough away from home to really look great value.
