What Trueform says for West Ham vs Cardiff
West Ham gave a glimpse of their true potential when winning 3-0 at Newcastle in the Premier League and can see off Cardiff if in the same mood.
The Hammers also received a high Trueform rating for last month’s 4-2 defeat of Burnley at London Stadium and really do look a decent outfit when on song.
With City struggling on the road, we reckon 7/10 for a home win is a rock-solid West Ham vs Cardiff prediction.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham ended Newcastle’s bid for a fourth straight success in emphatic fashion at St James’ Park.
They got their noses in front courtesy of Javier Hernandez’s 12th-minute strike and then picked off the Magpies at will with a display of lethal counter-attacking football.
Hernandez effectively killed the game off with his second 19 minutes into the second half and Felipe Anderson wrapped up the points at the death after the visitors passed up a series of other opportunities.
Anderson, a £40million summer signing from Lazio, is now targeting back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time this term.
He told West Ham TV: “This season, we haven’t been able to be consistent. We play very well one match and then the next one, we can’t manage to sustain the same level of performance.
“But now we expect to change that flow and manage to have a streak of victories to realise our potential. We have the will and the quality to do it.”
Looking at the West Ham vs Cardiff odds, we also like 3/2 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game.
Last West Ham line-up: Fabianski, Cresswell, Balbuena, Zabaleta, Diop, Felipe Anderson, Snodgrass, Noble, Rice, Arnautovic, Hernandez.
A Look At Cardiff City’s Betting Odds
Cardiff’s 2-1 Friday night triumph over Wolves in Wales gave us a trio of winning bets on that contest, including a 25/2 correct score pay-out.
Aron Gunnarsson and Junior Hoilett were on target as the Bluebirds came from behind to make it three wins in their last four home matches.
Hoilett said: “It shows how we fight to the final whistle and give 100 per cent no matter what. It’s a great club and against all odds we grind out results.
“We’re more relaxed now going into the West Ham game and it will ease the pressure on us if we pick up results in the next few weeks.
“If we stay positive, like we did in the second half, we’ll be all right.”
However, it is hard to get away from the fact that Cardiff have only picked up one point from six away trips since earning promotion, conceding 12 times and scoring just twice.
We’re adding 7/4 for the Hammers to prevail by more than one clear goal to our West Ham vs Cardiff betting tips – as they have done in all four league wins and two EFL Cup triumphs this term.
Last Cardiff line-up: Etheridge, Morrison, Ecuele Manga, Bamba, Arter, Ralls, Murphy, Paterson, Gunnarsson, Camarasa, Hoilett.
