West Ham will welcome Bournemouth to the London Stadium, knowing that a win coupled with some other favourable results, could see them move to within five points of a Champions League spot. We should also keep in the mind that, depending on European performances this season, 5th place in the Premier League could also end up being a Champions League position. Bournemouth will have their eyes on an unexpected Conference League spot. Read the prediction below to find out who I think will go on and win this match.

🏆 West Ham vs Bournemouth: Who Will Win?

betiton-desktop-bannerbetiton-desktop-banner

Not too long ago, there were calls for David Moyes to be fired, despite the fact that he led them to glory in the Europa Conference League last season. Those calls have dissipated for now as the Scotsman has West Ham in 6th place thanks to a run that has seen them pick up 11 points (3 wins and 2 draws) since their 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Fulham. They are now eight points adrift of Aston Villa, who occupy 4th spot at the moment. When it comes to the form table, they are sitting in 8th place courtesy of the 11 points they have earned in their last 6 matches.

Bournemouth were looking at a relegation battle not too long ago, but the fear of dropping down to the second tier of English football is something that they no longer need to worry about. They are currently sitting in 12th place in the table, with a comfortable 9-point gap on the Relegation Zone. When it comes to current form in the EPL over the last 6 matches, only Liverpool, Tottenham, and Manchester City have outperformed them.

This is not an easy match to predict, but I think that both teams will end up cancelling each other out. Therefore, I am going to predict this match to end in a draw. I always like to give a predicted score too, so in this one I will go for 1-1.

My Prediction: 🏆 West Ham 1 Bournemouth 1 ⚽

💯 West Ham vs Bournemouth Match Odds

There is no shortage of football betting markets, odds, and free bets at the majority of sports betting sites that British punters can register with. However, there can sometimes be a big discrepancy in the quality of one bookie and another.

In the tables below you can find top odds that some of my favourite established and new UK betting sites are currently offering British football bettors. If you want to find out more about any of these quality bookies, then just click on the brand logo, and you will be able to read our in-depth reviews.

West Ham vs Bournemouth: Match Winner Odds

The bookies have West Ham as very slight favourites to win this match, which tells us that they are not really sure which way it will go. They have basically done the bookmaker equivalent of sitting on the fence. Both of these teams are in fine form in the league and will be confident of getting a win here. Whether you want to bet on a West Ham win, a Bournemouth win, or a draw, you can find the odds in the table below:

West Ham vs Bournemouth: Both Teams To Score Odds

The top bookmakers all believe that both teams will find the back of the net here, and with the attacking talent that both teams have at their disposal, this is not much of a surprise to me. Bournemouth have averaged 2 goals a match in their previous 6 league matches, while West Ham are averaging 1.5 goals per match. The Both Teams to Score odds that the top bookies are offering can be seen below:

West Ham vs Bournemouth: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

The top bookies also feel that there will be at least 3 goals scored in this match, but I am personally not convinced by this. To be honest, it really is one of those matches that could see a good number of goals scored or one that finishes with not a single goal being scored. Since I know that some football bettors will be for over 2.5 goals and some will be for under 2.5 goals, I have provided the odds for both in the following table:

✔️ West Ham vs Bournemouth - Betting Tips

There is nothing preventing you from putting down a random bet and hoping that your luck is in, but I do not suggest that you leave it solely up to luck when you are betting on football. It is always good to check out football betting tips from experienced tipsters, which is why I am now going to provide a bit of betting advice for this West Ham vs Bournemouth match.

  • Tip 1: Bet on a draw: Some matches really can go either way, and this match certainly fits into such a category. The bookies have West Ham as the slight favourites, but I am backing a draw. West Ham have 3 wins and 2 draws from their previous 5 home games, while Bournemouth have 4 wins and 1 defeat. I think these two in-form teams will end up cancelling each other out, and will share the spoils. If you want to bet on a draw, then LeoVegas are offering odds of 2.35.
  • Tip 2: Bet on both teams to score: When these two teams met in the league back in August, the game ended with a 1-1 scoreline. They are both playing much better football now than they were back then, so it stands to reason that both teams will find the back of the net once again. Both teams have some quality attacking players, so there should be plenty of goal scoring opportunities in this match. If you want to bet on BTTS, then BetUK Sports are offering odds of 1.60 at present.
  • Tip 3: Bet on a 1-1 final score: Some punters are drawn in by long odds, and the final score market is one that often has enticing odds due to how tricky it is to predict. I think this match will end 1-1, and Betiton Sports are offering odds of 6.65.
  • Tip 4: Bet on Marcos Senesi to be booked: Adding a particular player to get booked to a Bet Builder is a good way to increase the odds. When it comes to yellows in this match, I can see Marcos Senesi piking up a booking. He always plays right on the edge and is not averse to putting in a strong tackle. He has 6 yellows in 16 matches, so is no stranger to the referee's book. BetUK Sports are offering odds of 3.95.

1️⃣West Ham Update

West Ham are currently sitting in 6th place in the league, having picked up 35 points from the 21 matches that they have played. They have scored 35 times in 21 games, giving them an average of 1.67 goals per match, while they have conceded 32, which works out at 1.52 goals per match. When it comes to EPL form over their previous six matches, they are 8th in table, having won 3, drawn 2, and lost 1.

David Moyes does not have that many absentees to deal with, but the five players that he does have out are five important players for the club. This is another reason why I think West Ham might struggle to claim all of the points. The absent West Ham players can be found below:

2️⃣Bournemouth Update

Bournemouth enter each Premier League season with the main aim of staying in the league, and things looked a little bit touch and go two to three months ago. However, Andoni Iraola has got his players playing the way that he wants, and they have become much better because of it. Yes, they were beaten 4-0 by Liverpool in their last match, but they won't be the last team to suffer at their hands. They have picked up 4 wins in their last 6 matches, and this has propelled them to 12th in the table, 9 points above the Relegation Zone.

Iraola, like Moyes, also has five players that will be missing for this clash, but you could argue that his absentees are not such a big miss when compared to the players who are out for West Ham. You can see the Bournemouth absentees in the table below:
