Norwich City are very close to relegation and their fight to stay alive will not be strengthened this weekend as a rampant West Ham team come to visit. This is a game where one team has played a lot better than the other throughout the season and as the league nears the end, this result should be clear to predict.
West Ham are coming off a big win in the FA Cup and that will give them a world of confidence. This team has been playing some really good soccer and they will believe that a spot in the Europa League is still possible for them. This is massive for a club like West Ham and the Londoners will want to capitalize on this opportunity by winning games like this one.
Norwich on the other hand will hope that they extra match in West Ham will cause the Hammers problems. Norwich are a little fresher and that might be important this late in the season. Furthermore, they will look to take advantage of the home crowd and hope for a good result riding on the momentum. That being said, I don’t think that they will get anything but a loss here since they are not playing well at all and their opponents are red hot at the moment.
As far as betting is concerned, we can bet on the outright result here since West Ham have a good price due to them playing that extra game and also because they are away from home. These should not affect the hammers since they are a lot better than their opponents and their talent should get them over the line. Also, this game is important to them so I expect a strong and motivated performance from the players who line up for West Ham.
