West Ham are once again back at the London Stadium and they host Watford this weekend. The Hammers were flirting with the possibility of relegation in the first few weeks of the season but they have now jumped into the top half of the table following a sensational run. Watford remain in the top half but they have been barely able to hold on with the team unable to put together a consistent run. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Betting Tips for the game

West Ham are up to 9th in the standings after managing a fourth consecutive win in the league. The 2-0 success over Fulham at Craven Cottage is also the first time West Ham have picked up back-to-back away wins in almost 2 years.

Watford picked up their first victory in seven matches after a 3-2 victory over Cardiff City at Vicarage Road, although the final score was not reflective of Watford’s domination in the match.

The recent game between these two clubs took place at the London Stadium with West Ham running out 2-0 winners. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for West Ham.

Match odds

Watford find themselves with just one victory in the last seven matches. They are up against a highflying West Ham team that are aiming for a fifth consecutive league victory for the first time in more than four years. The Hammers have not been able to put together this impressive form by being mediocre. They have been excellent on a number of aspects. The pace of players like Antonio and Felipe Anderson has helped make West Ham devastating when it comes to transitions. Our preview would go with a win for West Ham.

West Ham vs Watford draw odds: 3.50

Watford win odds: 3.10

Correct Score odds

The Hammers have been in some outstanding form going forward with 12 goals in the last six matches. Manchester City and Liverpool are the two teams to have scored more goals than West Ham in the last six matches and it says a lot about their form. Meanwhile, Watford have simply not been clinical and consistent enough to expect goals in great numbers. Our correct score prediction would go with a West Ham 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

The goals scored by West Ham have been brilliant on a number of fronts. The Hammers have the potential to score from counter-attacks, free kicks, and set-piece situations – apart from open play. Watford may get one goal but not much can be expected out of the Hornets in an away match. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Javier Hernandez failed to add to his goal tally in the match against Fulham, but the Mexican has been in decent form coming into this match. He has been able to score four goals in his last seven appearances – including an assist in the recent win over Fulham. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Javier Hernandez.
