West Ham will fancy their chances of getting back to back wins here when they face Cardiff City at the London Stadium tonight. The hosts had a terrible start to the season and were on a run of four straight defeats before winning against Everton at Goodison Park. Since then they have only lost another three Premier League matches and have climbed up to mid-table in the Premier League. They should win again here but we are expecting Cardiff to get on the scoresheet. West Ham have only kept one home clean sheet all season. Cardiff have lost all but one of their away matches so far (drawing the other) but they have got on the scoresheet at Liverpool and Chelsea in defeat. The Hammers beat Burnley 4-2 at home two matches ago and it’d be no surprise to see another West Ham win with both teams scoring here, so that’s where we’re starting our Premier League predictions for this match.
Manuel Pellegrini was dealt a massive blow when new signing Andriy Yarmolenko was ruled out for most of the season, so he has been relying heavily on fellow new winger Felipe Anderson. The big money signing from Lazio has made a good start to life in the Premier League and already has five Premier League goals to his name along with Marko Arnautovic. For our anytime goalscorer betting tip we are siding with the Brazilian who scored against Newcastle and has scored in home matches against both Manchester United and Burnley (scored two) this season. The odds for Anderson to score against Cardiff tonight are 16/5 at Betway.
Both of these sides have had their struggles this season but a win in their last matches will have put some confidence back into the sides. Ahead of tonight’s match the Hammers are favourites in the betting and we could be in for an exciting fixture. Cardiff City are on a decent little run themselves with two wins in their last three matches but in the 1-0 loss away to Everton they didn’t show much to suggest they could beat West Ham at the London Stadium.
Neil Warnock is expected to name the same team for this match that beat Wolves 2-1 on Friday night. West Ham are still without a few big names including Manuel Lanzini and Ukrainian winger Yarmolenko.
To complete today’s West Ham vs Cardiff predictions, we’re going to have a punt on a correct score bet. We’re already predicting a West Ham win with both teams to score bet here so that needs to be backed up on this bet. West Ham scored three against Newcastle at the weekend but Cardiff are usually more defensivsly minded when they’re away from home, but once West Ham score the Bluebirds will have to try and get the equaliser and that could play into the hands of the home side. Our correct score prediction is for West Ham to win 2-1. The best odds are 8/1 with bet365.
West Ham to win and BTTS – 12/5 with Betfred.
Filipe Anderson to score anytime – 16/5 with Betway.
West Ham to win 2-1 – 8/1 with bet365.
