Away Bournemouth

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Goals. There’s usually plenty of action when they play each other, with 23 goals in their five Premier League meetings. An over 3.5 goals bet is priced at 14/5, while it’s 15/2 for over 4.5 goals.

2 We fancy:

West Ham to win and both teams to score at 7/2. These two have conceded 80 goals between them this season, and the Hammers can go ninth if Everton and Watford fail to win.

3 It's a long shot, but…

A 3-1 home win at 17/1. Add Arnautovic as the first scorer and the odds increase to 50/1, while it’s 55/1 if you go for Lanzini.

West Ham vs Bournemouth Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Callum Wilson netted against West Ham earlier in the season and will be a threat to the Hammers again

After their struggles at times this season, both West Ham and Bournemouth are in with a shot of climbing into the top half of the Premier League table with a win in this game. There should be two confident teams on show following their victories last time out.

West Ham are 21/20 to build on their impressive 4-1 win at Huddersfield on Saturday. There was plenty of verve to the Hammers’ attacks against the Terriers, and Moyes will look for a similar performance from the likes of Arnautovic and Manuel Lanzini. The pair could prove to be a fearsome partnership up top, full of pace, power and ability on the ball.

Bournemouth are 3/1 to pick up a second valuable win in a week, after Eddie Howe’s side beat Arsenal on Sunday. The manager will be pleased to see his forwards getting on the scoresheet after their struggles earlier in the campaign. The only teams the Cherries have failed to score against since a goalless draw at Swansea late in November are Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City.

The draw is 5/2, and would take both sides to five unbeaten in the league. December’s game was the first Premier League draw between the teams, and a repeat of that action-packed 3-3 scoreline is priced at 80/1.

Lanzini is 6/1 to follow up his brace against Huddersfield by opening the scoring in this game. He’s 27/11 to score anytime, and 9/2 to find the net in a West Ham win. Arnautovic is 24/5 to break the deadlock, 15/8 to bag anytime or 4/1 to hit the target as the Hammers win their third game in four.

Wilson is 11/2 to score first, after his equalisers against both Arsenal last time out and the Hammers earlier in the season. Jordan Ibe opened his account for Bournemouth in scoring the winner against the Gunners, and he’s 14/1 to bag first and 6/1 to score anytime.

Predicted Score: West Ham 3 - 1 Bournemouth
