West Ham v Leicester Betting Tips – Premier League 24th November 8.00pm

A Friday night fixture for these and West Ham will be looking for their first points under David Moyes. Things didn’t go too well for the new boss as the Irons lost 2-0 at Watford and there is plenty of work to do to get out of the bottom three. The Foxes had been on a great run of form in the top flight before suffering a home loss against Manchester City on the weekend. They will go as favourites at the London Stadium to get back to winning ways.

West Ham News and Form

West Ham are still struggling and David Moyes has a lot of work on his hands to try and get them going in a positive direction. The Irons have failed to win any of their last five and have picked up just the one win in their last eight league outings. That was a 1-0 victory at home over Swansea at the end of September. West Ham have gone W2 L3 from their five games and the two games in total that they have won this season have been there. Both of their victories were picked up with a clean sheet as well, but their defence has been all over the place lately and aren’t reliable enough to back to blank their opponents. The Hammers have shipped at least two goals in each of their last four games. Over 2.5 goals at William Hill returns a price of 9/10. West Ham have netted only the six goals at the London Stadium this year and have conceded an average of exactly two goals per game at the London Stadium. Chicharito, their top scorer is out injured and Andy Carroll is their shortest priced anytime goalscorer option at 7/4.

Leicester News and Form

Leicester were going along five matches unbeaten in the Premier League before they had to entertain Manchester City on the weekend and went down 2-0 which wasn’t totally unexpected against the Champions elect. Away from they have collected only the one victory this season in the top flight and that was against Swansea. Leicester have netted at least two goals in half of their six road games this season and Jamie Vardy is their top scorer with six and he is a price of 11/8 in the anytime goalscorer market. Both teams to score at William Hill is a price of 7/10 and in the correct score market, the 1-1 draw is the shortest priced option at 11/2. There have been an average of three goals per game this season in games involving Leicester away from home. A half time draw is a decent option in this one because the Foxes have been level at the break in all but one of their six away games this season. Leicester are unbeaten in their last four away from the King Power this term.

West Ham v Leicester Head to Head

Leicester won both league games against the Irons last season and they are unbeaten in their last five against them in the top flight. There have been at least three goals in all but one of the last five games between them so there is a hint of goals coming in this one. The Irons have lost their last two home league games against Leicester and both teams have scored in all but one of the last six meetings in all competitions.

West Ham v Leicester Predictions

Leicester to win: The Foxes have the better of the recent form in the league between the two of them and there should be enough gaps in the West Ham back line for them to exploit and pick up the three points. They may very well leave David Moyes looking for his first points still with the east London club after this game.
