What Trueform says for Bournemouth vs West Ham
West Ham made it six wins in their last nine Premier League matches when beating Arsenal last week and travel to Bournemouth with plenty of momentum.
The Cherries tasted defeat at Everton to make it nine losses in 12 top-flight fixtures, but their home form has been solid in this competition.
Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal have won at this venue, but Eddie Howe’s side have done well against teams outside of the big six in front of their own fans.
We feel this is an even contest and 12/5 for a draw is our opening Bournemouth vs West Ham prediction.
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth suffered a sixth successive away league defeat when going down 2-0 in a scrappy contest at Goodison Park and have slipped to 12th in the table, four points behind ninth-placed West Ham.
However, they have beaten Huddersfield 2-1 and Brighton 2-0 in their last four top-flight fixtures on home turf, as well as drawing 3-3 with Watford.
After losing to Everton, Howe insisted: “I think when you don’t win, confidence becomes an issue, but you wouldn’t know it from the performance.
“You wouldn’t have known, if you were a neutral coming to the game, that we are on a bad run of form.
“I think we have to take a lot of confidence from the performance. Obviously not the result, but know that if we play that way again, results will change.”
The Cherries have netted in 13 of 15 home games in all competitions this season, so 29/10 for a score draw has obvious appeal from the Bournemouth vs West Ham odds.
Last Bournemouth line-up: Begovic, Cook, Ake, Smith, Clyne, Gosling, Lerma, Stanislas, Brooks, Fraser, King.
Bournemouth will make a late call on forward Callum Wilson, who has been out with a hamstring problem.
New signing Dominic Solanke (hamstring) continues his recovery, while Simon Francis, Adam Smith and Lewis Cook (all knee) remain long-term absentees.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham’s clash with Arsenal was a largely forgettable affair, but Declan Rice tucked away Samir Nasri’s lay-off to send most of a record 59,946 crowd home happy.
That was a first senior goal for hot prospect Rice, who declared: “I think you could see on my face how much it meant to me.
“To get the three points, to beat Arsenal and for me to score is unbelievable. You could see from the celebration I probably didn’t know what to do, but I’m delighted!”
Manuel Pellegrini added: “I am sure Declan will be a top player. He is improving in every game he plays, he is now more used to giving us a good build-up in front.
“I’m sure that we are seeing a top player soon and we will see not only for West Ham but also for the national squad that he decides to play for.”
There is definitely a feelgood factor associated with the Hammers at the moment, even if there is a cloud over the future of strikers Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez.
It was 3-3 when these teams met at this ground last season, before a 1-1 stalemate at London Stadium in January.
The Cherries shaded a 2-1 away win earlier this term, but United are now playing better and 10/1 for a 2-2 draw gets the nod in our Bournemouth vs West Ham betting tips.
Last West Ham line-up: Fabianski, Cresswell, Zabaleta, Ogbonna, Diop, Anderson, Noble, Nasri, Antonio, Rice, Arnautovic.
Hernandez is back in the squad after almost a month out with back and hamstring problems.
Full-back Ryan Fredericks has returned to training after an ankle injury but Jack Wilshere, Fabian Balbuena, Andriy Yarmolenko, Manuel Lanzini, Winston Reid and Carlos Sanchez are still missing.
