West Ham are up against Bournemouth at the London Stadium keen to recover quickly from the horrendous opening-day result. The hammers sit at the bottom of the table after suffering a big defeat. Last season, the club could only muster a 13th-place finish. Bournemouth were unable to finish in the top-10 last season only due to goal difference and manager Eddie Howe has been provided decent backing in the transfer market.

Betting Tips for the game
West Ham lost 4-0 against Liverpool at Anfield, as the Hammers went through a customary heavy away defeat against the Reds. Manuel Pellegrini did field most of the star summer signings but without a major impact.
Bournemouth made use of home advantage to get a crucial 2-0 win over Cardiff at the Vitality Stadium. The victory helps Bournemouth register an opening-day win for the first time in the Premier League.
The recent meeting between these two teams also happened to take place at the London Stadium with the score turning up as a 1-1 draw. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for West Ham.

Bournemouth are at odds of 3.80 to emerge victorious in the match. However, Cherries’ last away win over West Ham was in 2015 and it was when the Hammers were reduced to 10 men. Even though West Ham suffered a big defeat on the opening-day, things are expected to look on the bright side for Manuel Pellegrini’s team due to home advantage and a week of preparation to gel the new stars. Our preview would opt for a West Ham win.

West Ham vs Bournemouth draw odds: 3.60
Bournemouth win odds: 3.80
Correct Score odds
The hammers have a vast attacking quality at their disposal. Manuel Pellegrini started with Marko Arnautovic, Felipe Anderson, and Jack Wilshere against Liverpool. These three players have the potential to break down any opposition on their day. The week’s preparation will have certainly assisted West Ham on this front, but a winning margin of greater than one goal is extremely rare in matches between the two teams. Our correct score prediction would opt for a West Ham 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Games involving West Ham are likely to be entertaining the season due to a weak defence and an offence that is capable of scoring goals at will. There have been plenty of entertaining matches between the hammers and Bournemouth in the past. Our total goals prediction would opt for more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Marko Arnautovic did not register a shot on target against Liverpool, but he is no stranger when it comes to doing well against Bournemouth. In fact, Marko Arnautovic came up with a brace in the 3-3 draw at the Vitality Stadium last season. Our first goalscorer prediction would back the Austrian.
