Luton Town Betting Preview
Luton Town have gotten off to a slow start to their season and so far they have picked up zero points in two games. So far in the Premier League, Luton Town has lost to Brighton 4-1 and against Chelsea they lost 3-0. Luton Town did play a midweek game in the EFL Cup and they were able to win 3-2. The offense put up the three goals, but the defense still left a lot to be desired. One issue for Luton Town right now is they are dealing with injury issues. Dan Potts and Jordan Clark are both dealing with long term injuries that will keep them out a while.
West Ham United Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup is West Ham United who sit in second place in the standings having picked up seven points in three games. So far West Ham has played to a draw against AFC Bournemouth and knocked off Chelsea and Brighton. In the last game against Brighton, the offense scored three goals on the way to the victory. West Ham only 22 percent of the possession but they did finish with the seven shots on goal. Tomas Soucek had to leave the last game early and now his status for this game is up in the air.
Shane’s Free Pick
The fact the total goals for this game sits at only 2.5 goals is shocking. West Ham should go over that number by themselves here. West Ham Untied has scored seven goals this season and Luton Town has had issues keeping goals out of the back of the net. West Ham United is going to score at least three goals. I expect Luton Town could also score a goal or two, and that will be the difference here. Back the over to cash.
