Stadium: London Stadium
Brentford have been a breath of fresh air since gaining promotion to the Premier League and Sunday’s London derby with West Ham should be good to watch.
The Bees are coming off a thrilling 3-3 draw with Liverpool, while the Hammers enjoyed a dramatic win at Leeds last weekend.
We’re happy to take 10/11 for there to be over 2.5 goals in the game as our first West Ham vs Brentford prediction.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham haven’t let the distraction of being involved in Europe affect their appetite for Premier League points, judged on a 2-1 win at Leeds.
Michail Antonio’s last-minute decider snatched victory for the Hammers, who hit back after trailing at the interval to maintain their fine start to the season.
Antonio and Said Benrahma both missed first-half chances for West Ham as the action ebbed and flowed at Elland Road.
“We missed quite a few I felt,” said Moyes. “Two or three at the start before they went 1-0 up, missed one right on half-time, but I thought the second half we were better.
“Thankfully, we got there. Great character from the players and it was a great win for us.”
Both teams have scored in five of United’s six league games, which adds to the belief that this will be another lively contest.
Antonio has now netted his side’s final goal on four occasions, so 4/1 he completes the scoring in this game catches the eye from the West Ham vs Brentford odds.
Last West Ham EPL line-up: Fabianski, Cresswell, Zouma, Coufal, Ogbonna, Fornals, Soucek, Rice, Antonio, Bowen, Benrahma.
Defender Vladimir Coufal will be assessed having missed Thursday’s Europa League win over Rapid Vienna due to a minor injury.
Ryan Fredericks also faces a late fitness test after suffering a groin issue in the Carabao Cup win at Manchester United last month.
A Look At Brentford’s Betting Odds
Brentford’s 3-3 stalemate with Liverpool was nothing short of a classic and put them on a healthy nine points in mid-table.
In a match which swung one way and then the other throughout, Ethan Pinnock, Vitaly Janelt and Yoane Wissa were on target for the brave Bees.
Ivan Toney could have even won it for Brentford but his late strike was ruled out for offside.
Thomas Frank said: “It was a fantastic game. We went toe to toe with a top team, an unbelievably attacking side with a fantastic manager.
“Coming back twice showed unbelievable character. We were behind, we wanted to get a point at least.
“We wanted to go for more and we had massive belief we could get something from this game. I’m crazy, crazy proud of the performance of the players.”
Toney has already shown he can perform on the road in the top flight, scoring in a 1-1 draw at Aston Villa and a 2-0 win at Wolves.
Let’s add 17/10 for the fearless front man to net at any time to our West Ham vs Brentford betting tips.
Last Brentford line-up: Raya, Henry, Pinnock, Jansson, Ajer, Norgaard, Onyeka, Mbeumo, Vanelt, Canos, Toney.
Brentford have no new injury concerns. Ethan Pinnock was taken off inside the first half against Liverpool but is likely to be fit.
Leeds 1-2 WEST HAM – Junior Firpo (og), Michail Antonio
BRENTFORD 3-3 Liverpool – Ethan Pinnock, Vitaly Janelt, Yoane Wissa
Head-to-head: West Ham 4-0 Brentford, Brentford 0-0 West Ham
