What Trueform says for West Ham vs Leicester
West Ham were pretty awful when David Moyes began his reign with a loss at Watford and the Hammers look worth taking on with a useful outfit like Leicester.
The Foxes joined a long list of teams to find Manchester City too strong last weekend but have registered some decent Trueform ratings in recent weeks, consistently outperforming their next opponents.
City should be shorter than 33/20 on that evidence and get the vote in our West Ham vs Leicester betting predictions.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
Slaven Bilic got the push following a 4-1 home loss to Liverpool and Moyes was given a clear taste of how tough the job is he has inherited during a 2-0 defeat to the Hornets at Vicarage Road.
The Hammers had just 41 per cent of the possession and showed few signs of chasing the game after going behind, highlighting how short on confidence and self-belief they have become.
“Some big players, with big reputations, disappointed me a lot,” moaned the Scot. “I thought they would show me more. They need to show me why they have got that reputation.”
Moyes will demand more energy and commitment from his players in time, but this game could still come too soon for him to make a big enough impact.
United have conceded 25 goals in their first 12 league games this season, so 7/5 for the Foxes to score more than once stands out from the West Ham vs Leicester odds.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester tried to match Manchester City’s intensity at King Power Stadium but couldn’t sustain such a high tempo, although they were unfortunate with a couple of key incidents.
Vincent Kompany could easily have been sent off early on and Harry Maguire hit the post with a header just 22 seconds before Kevin De Bruyne went up the other end and made it 2-0.
The Foxes were restricted to just 25 per cent of the possession as their opponents took control of proceedings, though, so few will argue the result was anything but fair.
However, prior to that daunting test, Leicester had been going well, winning against Swansea, Leeds in the EFL Cup and Everton before drawing 2-2 at Stoke.
If they can immediately get back to that form, they should find Friday night’s company far more conducive, especially after doing the double over them last term.
The Foxes scored in the first half for four straight matches before last week’s loss and we like 17/10 they break the deadlock in the opening period here for our West Ham vs Leicester betting tips.
