What Trueform says for West Ham vs Huddersfield
West Ham have been inconsistent of late but Trueform shows they are capable of producing the sort of performances that rock-bottom Huddersfield can only dream of.
The Terriers gave their fans something to cheer about with a recent last-gasp winner against Wolves but they have since flopped against Brighton and Bournemouth.
West Ham were beaten at Cardiff last weekend but their home form has been solid and this looks the perfect opportunity for them to get back on track.
We reckon United to win to nil is an obvious pick at 5/4 for our first West Ham vs Huddersfield prediction.
A Look At West Ham’s Betting Odds
West Ham are in contention for a seventh-placed finish and a possible Europa League place but those hopes are fading due to their away form.
The 2-0 loss in south Wales means they have only taken one point from their last six away games, but it has been a different story at the London Stadium.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men are unbeaten at home in 2019 and have taken 11 points from their last five games, including victory over Arsenal and a draw with Liverpool.
Back-to-back home games against Huddersfield and Everton give them the chance to get back on track and goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is eyeing a strong end to the campaign.
“It was a poor performance but we really want to finish the season strongly,” he said after the Cardiff defeat.
“We have eight games left and we would like to push and get as much as we can from those games. We have two home games now, which are important, and from which we can get something.”
The Hammers have been ruthless at home against the weaker teams in the division, winning 16 points from 18 against teams currently in the bottom eight.
They have scored at least two goals in each of those six matches, so 83/100 for the home team to score over 1.5 goals stands out from the West Ham vs Huddersfield odds.
Last West Ham line-up: Fabianski, Fredericks, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Rice, Snodgrass, Noble, Lanzini, Anderson, Hernandez.
West Ham striker Andy Carroll will miss out with an ankle injury, joining Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko, Carlos Sanchez and Winston Reid on the sidelines.
Fabian Balbuena is set to figure for the first time since December after recovering from a knee injury while Marko Arnautovic is in line for a recall in attack.
A Look At Huddersfield’s Betting Odds
Huddersfield’s sorry goal tally of 15 is just one better than their points tally and they produced another toothless performance in a 2-0 defeat at home to Bournemouth last Saturday.
That was the 16th time this season that they have failed to find the net and they have only scored more than one goal in a match on one occasion.
Manager Jan Siewert will hope a summer overhaul of the squad can give the Terriers more bite in attack, but until then, there appears to be no quick solution.
Goalkeeper Jonas Lossl said: “We did play well in a lot of aspects and of course we tried, but we lacked aggression up front in the final third, not just from the strikers but everybody, to score that goal.”
When asked what could be done, the Denmark international replied: “That is a big question, which we have worked on all season and we’re still working on it.”
Assuming no solution is found in training this week, a 2-0 home win at 6/1 appeals as the last of our West Ham vs Huddersfield betting tips.
Last Huddersfield line-up: Lossl, Bacuna, Jorgensen, Schindler, Durm, Stankovic, Billing, Kachunga, Pritchard, Mooy, Mounie.
Huddersfield defender Erik Durm is the latest injury doubt after sustaining a muscle strain in training this week. Fellow defender Terence Kongolo is also a concern due to a similar problem.
Tommy Smith is back in contention after suspension, but Jonathan Hogg, Laurent Depoitre, Adama Diakhaby, Isaac Mbenza, Demeaco Duhaney and Danny Williams are all still out.
