Match Preview

Saturday’s Premier League match in London sees two under fire managers go head-to-head in an early relegation six pointer. The latest football betting odds on the managerial sack-race show Slaven Bilic and Paul Clement near the top of the favourites list to get fired. Coming into today’s West Ham United vs Swansea City preview, the Hammers have lost just once in four and as more players have returned from injury, the better the performances have been. Last weekend, they were beaten 3-2 at home by Spurs, who raced into a 3-0 lead before being pegged back by West Ham United. Bilic will be pleased that his defence have kept three clean sheets in four, especially since they had conceded thirteen Premier League goals so far this season – that’s more than any other side in the league.

The Swans players were booed off the pitch in their last game before our OddsDigger West Ham United vs Swansea City betting tips. The usually loyal City fans weren’t best pleased when their team lost 1-2 to Watford at the Liberty Stadium. That defeat made it six losses in seven for the struggling Welsh team, although they have conceded just seven times. On the road, Clement’s team have actually been unusually impressive. In five games in the Premier League and League Cup, the Swans have yet to lose. Their last league away match saw them secure a great point in a 0-0 draw at Spurs.

West Ham United vs Swansea City Prediction and Betting Advice

At the London Stadium, the Hammers have won three of their last four matches overall. Things are starting to look up for Bilic and with all due respect to Swansea City, the Croatian manager would have identified this fixture as a genuine chance to get some points. The history books also favour the first choice in our West Ham United vs Swansea City bets. WHU have beaten the Swans on five of the last seven occasions they played in the capital. Though it must be pointed out that when the teams played in May, it was Swansea who emerged victorious with a surprise 4-1 win. United are starting to turn the corner though and with Chicharito in superb shape with three goals in his last four Premier League appearances, we’re backing the home side to bag the points. Ladbrokes have the best odds around if you fancy backing our prediction – their value can’t be topped.

As we alluded to above, the Swans have been pretty solid defensively despite their poor run of results. In their last nine EPL away games, in a sequence stretching back to the end of last season, there have been under 2.5 goals scored. That kind of statistic is difficult to dismiss and it’s a leading reason for this prediction in our Premier League predictions today. Only Crystal Palace have scored fewer goals than City in 2017/18, further supporting our West Ham United vs Swansea City predictions. In five of the last seven clashes between our scrutinized clubs, there has been under 2.5 goals scored. With Clement expected to stick to his defensively rigid away match instructions, it’s doubtful that the London Stadium will witness many goals this weekend. Unibet’s goal market odds are out on their own in terms of choice.
