What Trueform says for Burnley vs West Ham
West Ham have outperformed Burnley four times in the last five rounds of Premier League fixtures, according to our Trueform ratings.
The Hammers climbed up to ninth in the table with a 2-1 triumph at Southampton, whereas the Clarets are third from bottom, 15 points adrift, following a 5-1 thrashing by Everton at this venue.
United won 4-2 when these teams met in London last month and 5/4 for them to confirm that superiority in Lancashire is our first Burnley vs West Ham prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley look a shadow of the team which finished seventh last season and have lost nine of their 11 matches since the international break.
The Clarets were 3-0 down inside 22 minutes when hosting Everton, before Ben Gibson pulled one back and James Tarkowski missed a great chance in a brighter spell.
However, the Toffees still wrapped up an emphatic victory with two more goals in the second period to leave Sean Dyche’s side in relegation trouble.
“They started much brighter, much sharper, with more energy,” admitted Dyche. “They were the better side and deserved to win.”
Burnley have conceded 41 goals in 19 top-flight games, already more than they let in over the whole of last season.
Looking at the Burnley vs West Ham odds, we like 12/5 for an away win and over 2.5 goals in the match.
Last Burnley line-up: Hart, Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Gibson, Cork, Hendrick, Westwood, Vokes, Barnes.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham have picked up an impressive 15 points out of 18 this month following a 2-1 come-from-behind win at Southampton, where Felipe Anderson bagged a brace.
Nathan Redmond bundled the ball in with his hand to give Saints a scrappy lead, but Anderson soon levelled with a 20-yard low strike.
The Hammers then took full advantage of surviving a strong penalty appeal by breaking away and hitting the front, with Michail Antonio setting up Anderson for another clinical finish.
Anderson has now scored seven goals in his past nine Premier League appearances and Manuel Pellegrini declared: “He will continue improving.
“He is a different player, a player that in every game makes important plays. His run of goals is important for him and the team.
“It’s not easy for a midfield player to score so many goals by this stage of the season. He can change the score of the game in any moment.”
Burnley have had problems with midfield players making runs from deep this term, so this is another chance for the £40million capture from Lazio to shine.
Let’s finish off our Burnley vs West Ham betting tips by taking 5/2 for Anderson to score at anytime again.
Last West Ham line-up: Fabianski, Cresswell, Ogbonna, Diop, Anderson, Snodgrass, Obiang, Antonio, Rice, Diangana, Perez.
