West Ham take on Leicester City at the London Stadium looking to make their way into the top half of the table. Manuel Pellegrini’s men have lacked consistency throughout the second-half of the season and they have been unable to sustain a challenge for Europe. West Ham are now four points away from the top 10. Leicester City remain as favourites for the seventh place even though Wolves, Everton, and Watford are too close to comfort. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
West Ham lost three successive matches in the Premier League after a 2-1 defeat against Manchester United at Old Trafford. The Hammers were much better and could have taken something out of the match.
Leicester City were unable to add a fifth consecutive league victory after the team lost 1-0 against Newcastle at the King Power Stadium last weekend. This was only the second defeat in Brendan Rodgers’ reign as the Leicester manager so far.
The previous game between Leicester and West Ham produced a 1-1 draw at the King Power Stadium with the Hammers almost coming close to a victory with 10 men before the Foxes equalised late. West Ham’s last home game against Leicester also finished as a 1-1 draw. Our betting tips and predictions would go with a win for Leicester.

Manuel Pellegrini has seen his West Ham team go through a long inconsistent run in the second half of the campaign. The home form has been a major support for West Ham, but the Hammers may lack the motivation to go for the win. This would not be the case with Leicester, who are gunning for a seventh place. Even though marking down Maddison reduced the effectiveness of Leicester in the game against Newcastle, there will be more space for the Foxes going forward in this match. Our preview would pick a victory for the home team.

West Ham vs Leicester City draw odds: 3.50
West Ham win odds: 3.30
Correct Score odds
Leicester are aiming for a third successive away victory for the first time this season. The Foxes have done well in all of the away games under Rodgers, as they have taken advantage of Jamie Vardy’s pace and Maddison’s vision. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 2-1 win for Leicester.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
West Ham may have been quite strong at home, but there has been just one clean sheet from the Hammers in the last five matches at the London Stadium. The absence of Marko Arnautovic is a blow for West Ham, but they have enough forwards capable of scoring in the game. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals, as Leicester are capable of hitting the Hammers quite badly on the counter.

First Goalscorer odds
Jamie Vardy has been able to get 15 league goals this season and his impact in this away match will be quite essential for Leicester. Vardy has not scored in three games against West Ham, but his recent form has been quite excellent with eight goals in his last nine matches. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Jamie Vardy.
