West Ham vs Leeds United Prediction
Both teams to score: YES @ 4/7 - BET NOW
The reverse fixture between these teams finished 2-1 as both sides found the back of the net. West Ham saw their last two league games finish with both teams scoring. They are scoring goals but conceding them too. The same can be said for Leeds United. Two of their last six games ended with both teams scoring goals. They conceded eight times over the course of the last six games.
Over 2.5 goals scored @ 4/6 - BET NOW
Five of West Ham’s last six games in the league ended with over 2.5 goals scored. They are scoring goals this season and playing well in attack. The teams played out a 2-1 game at Elland Road earlier this season with West Ham winning. West Ham average 1.5 goals scored in the league. Three of Leeds United’s last six league matches finished with over 2.5 goals scored. Leeds United conceded an average of 1.7 goals per match in the league.
Jesse Lingard to score anytime @ 11/4 - BET NOW
Jesse Lingard has been brilliant for West Ham since arriving on loan from Manchester United in January. The attacking midfielder has proven himself with the Hammers and has been given a chance to shine. He has scored three goals in five games to go along with two assists. Lingard set up a goal in the loss to Manchester City. In just one of the five matches Lingard has played with West Ham has he failed to notch a goal or assist.
Leeds United too inconsistent to get much closer to the Europa League qualification. They are good enough to stay in the league, but not good enough to reach European qualification. Leeds United should struggle to get a win versus a good West Ham side. The Hammers should claim a win and continue their fight for Champions League qualification. Moyes’ problem will be keeping pace with Chelsea and Everton in the race for the top four.
