A good week is expected in the English Premier League as West Ham look to turn their season around in a game against Middlesbrough. West Ham have struggled at their new home but so have their opponents so I am expecting quite a close game between two teams that have had similar fortunes up to know.
West Ham are a quality team but they have had a ton of injuries and that is causing them so many problems that it is ridiculous. That being said, the likes of Dmitri Payet are fit and that will mean a ton of opportunities will be created. This will give the Hammers hope but they know that this should be an easy win no matter what.
Middlesbrough on the other hand are a club that spent a lot of money during the transfer window and their players have not seemed to click yet and that will surely be causing a lot of tension in the ranks because their needs to be a return on investment. This side should have goals and their defence is not dreadful but they are getting beaten in the middle of the park and I think that will happen again for them in this match against West Ham.
All in all I think that West Ham will get a win at home. West Ham are the better side, they are at home and as a result I think this should be an easy win for the Hammers. We are getting a good enough price on West Ham to win this game and as a result I think this is the best betting options. Both teams to score is also a decent bets since both sides have plenty of goals in them.
