West Ham United Betting Preview
West Ham United currently sits in 19th place in the standings having picked up 24 points. A win in this game though would move them out of the relegation zone. On March 16th West Ham faced off against AEK Larnaca and they were able to secure a 4-0 victory. The scoring started in the 20th minute and they never looked back. Jarrod Bowen scored two goals to pace them. Lukasz Fabianski and Michail Antonio are both dealing with injuries and it’s unclear if they are going to be able to go in this game. If either guy can’t go it’s going to be a big loss for this team.
Southampton Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup is Southampton who sits in 20th place in the standings having picked up 23 points. In the last game against Tottenham, Southampton was able to play to a 3-3 draw, and pick up a point. James Ward-Prowse scored in the 93rd minute on a penalty kick to tie the game. Southampton is super banged up heading into this game. Armel Bella-Kotchap and Jan Bednarek both had to leave the game early against Tottenham. It’s currently a pain tolerance issue now for Bednarek and it’s unclear if he’s going to be able to go in this game. If he does go here, he won’t be close to 100 percent.
Shane’s Free Pick
The loser of this game is going to have a very tough hill battle to play in the Premier League next season. Even with the injuries, West Ham has the defense to find success in this game, while Southampton is coming off a game where the defense was a major issue. In this game look for West Ham to find the back of the net a time or two, and that will be enough to get the job done. Back West Ham United on the money line.
