Burnley vs West Ham 14 October 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Soccer | Burnley (6th) West Ham (15th)

Burnley takes on West Ham in what should be a game between two of the sides in the Premier League that are both struggling. This is an important game for both sides since three points here will help the respective teams in getting a platform the move forward from as the season progresses.

West Ham have had on and off periods in every game and that inconsistency has cost them with a ton of points this season. This is not a bad side but they are not playing like a good one at the moment. The manager is under some pressure and I think a win away from home will be really important to the side.

On the other side of the coin, Burnley are a team that have relied on their home ground to get the majority of their points. On the road, this side looks very poor but at home, they have managed to surprise many sides and get results. This team is coming off a few good result including a draw at Everton so I am expecting they will be playing with confidence at home.

While this should be a very close game, I am going to predict that Burnley will win this game. They are playing well at the moment and I think that the home crowd will get them over the line against the Hammers. As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a good price on this bet and as a result, I think it is the best option for betting in this game. In addition to that, the under 2.5 goals is also a good bet since goals have been an issue for both sides.
