West Ham vs Bournemouth 20 January 2018: EPL Preview and Predictions

West Ham United will at home at the London Stadium as they take on a visiting Bournemouth side. The Hammers are playing well and it seems like the fans are getting behind the side for the first time in ages and that should result in it being very difficult for any team visiting East London.

Since David Moyes took over it has looked like and entirely different West Ham side. The big players seem motivated, the defense is organized and midfield is working hard. This combination has resulted in good things for the West Ham United fans and board who were under massive amounts of pressure earlier in the season. This game against Bournemouth is a game which the Hammers will be expected to get a win from.

Bournemouth, on the other hand, are a team that is struggling. This side looks like they might be getting relegated and the biggest issue is the fact that they are failing to score goals. Defoe and King were added to this team but even with two top quality strikers it looks like goals are a problem. Furthermore, performances away from home have not been great and due to these reasons I see a Bournemouth loss in this game.

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a good enough price to bet on West Ham United to win this game outright. The Hammers are the better side and they are also going to be at home so it makes sense to place this wager. In addition to that, I also like both teams not to score since I don’t think Bournemouth have what it takes to score away from home, especially at London Stadium.

Pick:
West Ham
