West Ham United Betting Preview

West Ham United currently sits in 14th place in the standings having picked up 30 points. It has been a disappointing season for West Ham United, but they have turned it around as of late. Last Saturday against Fulham they were able to secure the 1-0 victory. The only goal for West Ham was an own goal in the 23rd minute. West Ham had only 23 percent of the possession. West Ham had a midweek game where they played to a 1-1 draw against Gent. West Ham United is pretty healthy heading into this game. Gianluca Scamacca has to undergo knee surgery and he’s going to be out for a while. 

Arsenal Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is Arsenal who sits in 1st place in the standings having picked up 73 points. Last Sunday Arsenal faced off against Liverpool and they played to a 2-2 draw. They jumped out to a 2-0 lead, but they gave up two goals after the 42nd minute and that led to them only picking up a point. William Saliba is still dealing with a back injury and it could be a while until he’s healthy enough to play. Rob Holding is expected to move into the starting lineup for him. Arsenal does have a little cushion, but they need to take advantage of the games against teams near the bottom of the table. 

Shane’s Free Pick

West Ham United’s defense has been an issue at times this season, and it’s going to sneak up on them again here. Arsenal is going to continue the strong offense, and this time they aren’t going to blow the lead. Look for Arsenal to score three or four goals and cruise to the victory. Back Arsenal -1.5.
