There is Monday night football for English Premier League fans to look forward to and we take a look at the game between West Ham and Bournemouth from a betting angle.
WEST HAM FORM
West Ham currently sit 14th on the table with 3 wins and 2 draws in their 11 matches. They were showing signs of recovery with back-to-back home wins, but has since lost 1-0 on the road to Liverpool and drawn 1-1 at Southampton also away from home.
West Ham have played 5 games in front of their own fans winning 2 and drawing 1 and they are undefeated in their last 3 games at home. Goals have been hard to come by in West Ham matches with only 2 of the 11 games delivering you a profit had you backed over 2.5 goals. West Ham games averaged 1.9 goals each this season.
Bournemouth are 1 position above West Ham in 13th on the table and they sit 2 points clear of them with 13 points in 11 matches. Bournemouth have won 3 and drawn 4 of their 11 games, but they are on a shaky run with only 1 win in their last 5 matches and last time out they lost 1-0 at home to Southampton.
They have only won 1 out of 5 matches on the road this season and have drawn their last 2 away games and are unbeaten in their last 3 away matches. 6 of the 11 Bournemouth matches have reached the 3 goal mark this season and their away matches average 4.8 goals each with Bournemouth scoring 6 and conceding 18 in the 5 matches.
HEAD TO HEAD
These sides haven’t met in the League since January 2020 when West Ham beat Bournemouth 4-0 at home.

West ham 4/7
I think West Ham are going to be too strong for Bournemouth here and given Bournemouth’s leaky defence on the road, I am backing the Hammers to win this one by more than a goal.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, West Ham -1.5 at 31/20
