West Ham will be glad to head back to the London Stadium where they prepare to host relegation favourites in this field this weekend. The Hammers remain in the top half of the table despite witnessing an alarming decline in form of late. Manuel Pellegrini does remain confident about West Ham’s Europa League opportunities with the team only six points away from the seventh place. Huddersfield remain at the bottom with a whopping 16-point deficit to safety with only eight games left in the campaign. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
West Ham lost 2-0 against relegation favourites Cardiff at the Cardiff City Stadium in Wales. This defeat continued their poor run on the road. The Hammers have lost eight of their 15 away matches.
Huddersfield were unable to make the most of home advantage after the team lost 2-0 against Bournemouth last weekend. The result intensifies the likelihood of relegation with the team now having to pick up 16 points out of a possible 24 in order to stay up.
The reverse fixture between Huddersfield and West Ham produced a 1-1 draw. Huddersfield’s last visit to the London Stadium saw them lose 2-0. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for West Ham.

Huddersfield are moving on the verge of relegation with the team losing a string of matches of late. The arrival of Jan Siewert had produced an improvement in performances but results have not been great. Huddersfield are looking certainties for relegation with a 16 point deficit to safety with only 24 points to play for in the remainder of the campaign. Meanwhile, West Ham are much better when it comes to home matches and it is difficult to read too much into the recent loss against Cardiff. West Ham are unbeaten in five successive matches at the London Stadium. Our preview would go with a win for the Hammers.

West Ham vs Huddersfield Town draw odds: 3.80
Huddersfield Town win odds: 6.50
Correct Score odds
West Ham have been able to go unbeaten against Huddersfield but they have strangely kept just one clean sheet in three encounters against this opponent, who traditionally do not score a lot of goals. Huddersfield may have a lot of work rate in their squad, but the lack of goals. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for West Ham.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been plenty of goals when West Ham have taken to field at the London Stadium, but Huddersfield will be a team keen to avoid conceding a lot of goals in this match. The Hammers may score a couple of goals past the defensive Huddersfield team. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Javier Hernandez has been able to score only five goals this season. He has scored only once in the last 10 matches for the Hammers. Marko Arnautovic has been a regular scorer for West Ham this season but he only came on at half-time in the recent game against Cardiff. Since Arnautovic is no longer a regular, our first goalscorer prediction would back Hernandez.
