Brentford and West Ham United face off on Sunday in an English Premier League showdown at Gtech Community Stadium. 

Brentford vs West Ham United Odds

Brentford sits as the favorite sitting at -105 while West Ham United is the underdog sitting at +280. The total in this game sits at 2.5 goals with the over paying out at -115. 

Brentford Betting Preview

Brentford comes into this game sitting in 10th place in the standings having picked up 50 points. Brentford has had a solid season, but in the last game against Liverpool Brentford failed to score any goals and ended up losing. Brentford had 46 percent of the possession and one shot on target.  Rico Henry suffered a hand injury but it looks like he should be able to go in this game. Keane Lewis-Potter, Christian Norgaard, Thomas Strakosha, and Pontus Jansson are all still in the treatment room and they aren’t going to be able to go in this game. In this game Brentford is going to need the offense to be strong early, and put the pressure on the West Ham back line. 

West Ham United Betting Preview

West Ham United comes into this game sitting in 15th place in the standings having picked up 37 points. On Thursday West Ham United faced off in the Europa Conference League against Az Alkmaar and they were able to secure the 2-1 victory. Last Sunday, West Ham United was able to beat Manchester United 1-0. Just a few weeks ago it looked like West Ham United was going to be relegated, but now it looks like they are all but safe. Emerson Palmieri, Manuel Lanzini, Pablo Fornals, and Danny Ings are all players that could move into the starting lineup in this game. 

Shane’s Free Pick

West Ham United’s midweek game is going to really hurt them. They are going to have some tired legs, even if they make some lineup changes, and that is going to be the difference here. West Ham United is going to fail to score any goals, and Brentford will score at least one time. Back Brentford on the money line.
