West Ham United will be in action this week as the Hammers host Manchester United at London Stadium. This is not an important game for either side but with the season drawing to an end, both teams would like to get some final points on the board.

Manchester United has an embarrassing loss on the weekend and with the FA Cup final not far away, the Red Devils will be desperate to get some points on the board. This seems like a good opportunity for Mourinho and his players to get a win in London in preparation for their final. The likes of Lingard, Lukaku, Martial and Pogba all need good performances to have confidence as they head to Wembley and a good showing against West Ham will allow that to happen.  

On the other side of the coin, West Ham United need to finish the season strongly. This has not been a good season for the Hammers with the club in turmoil after their unwanted move to London Stadium. The board is hated by the fans and the fans are very vocal about it. A few wins will be massive and if they can beat Manchester United, it will be a massive boost. That being said, this is still a very poor side and it seems unlikely that anything will happen from this game.

All in all, I am going to predict that Manchester United will win this game. The Red Devils are the better side and West Ham are done for the season so this should be an easy game. We are not getting a great price and as a result, betting on the outright result is not worth it. The best bet in the over 2.5 goals and I think this is a safe bet since West Ham have a very poor defense.  

 

Pick:
Over 2.5 Goals
