Kick-off: 1500, 29/09/2019
Stadium: Vitality Stadium
Back-to-back 3-1 wins have helped propel Bournemouth into sixth place in the Premier League after six rounds.
West Ham sit one place and one point above their opponents courtesy of a five-game unbeaten streak.
This fixture just screams goals so 27/20 for there to be over 3.5 in the game is our opening Bournemouth vs West Ham prediction.
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth won successive games for the first time since January when following up their triumph over Everton by beating Southampton.
Goals from Nathan Ake and Harry Wilson put the Cherries 2-0 ahead before James Ward-Prowse’s penalty reduced the arrears.
But Callum Wilson capitalised on a mix-up in the Saints defence to wrap up victory late on and move Bournemouth on to 10 points.
Boss Eddie Howe told the club website: “To win away in any ground in the Premier League really is so difficult and we really do respect Southampton.
“I still feel there’s a lot more to come from everyone in the team, the team itself, but [that is a] very good sign if you’re saying that while you are winning.
“We know we’re not where we want to be, we’ve got work to do and that’s why it is important we stay grounded.”
The both teams to score market has paid off in all of Bournemouth’s six league fixtures and the last four have been decided by a 3-1 scoreline.
We feel there is little to split the two sides so, looking at the Bournemouth vs West Ham odds, we like 21/2 for a 2-2 draw.
Last EPL Bournemouth line-up: Ramsdale, Stacey, Cook, Ake, Rico, Lerma, H Wilson, Billing, King, Solanke, C Wilson.
Bournemouth have been boosted by the return to fitness of Simon Francis, Lloyd Kelly and Arnaut Danjuma but Charlie Daniels (knee), Dan Gosling (hip), Adam Smith (hamstring), David Brooks (ankle) and Junior Stanislas (knee) are all continuing their own recoveries.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
Since their 5-0 thrashing at home by champions Manchester City on the opening day, West Ham have responded by going five games unbeaten.
The Hammers have drawn at Brighton and Aston Villa, where they finished with 10 men, while beating Watford 3-1 at Vicarage Road.
At the London Stadium, they have registered successive 2-0 wins over Norwich and Manchester United respectively to sit in fifth place.
After the United win, boss Manuel Pellegrini said: “I’m very happy.
“I always talk with the players that we must have the mentality to play the same way we work during the week.
“It doesn’t matter if we play United or against every big team. We must trust that we are able to beat them.”
The Hammers have reeled off three successive clean sheets but this fixture has seen 17 goals in four games in the Premier League.
With that in mind, we will complete our Bournemouth vs West Ham betting tips by going for both teams to score in the first half at 23/10.
Last EPL West Ham line-up: Fabianski, Fredericks, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Anderson, Noble, Rice, Fornals, Yarmolenko, Haller.
