West Ham vs Bournemouth Prediction and Betting Tips
- Updated: 18th August 2018
West Ham vs Bournemouth – Premier League :This Saturday on the 2nd round of the Premier League, West Ham hosts Bournemouth
The match will be played at the London Olympic Stadium. Sure, that wasn’t the easiest debut in the Premier League, but West Ham had a rough awakening already on the first round.
The team ended up being battered by Liverpool away from home by 4-0, which was a cold bucket of water on the team’s expectations. Those expectations were created in another year of huge investments on their roster.
Since their return, West Ham have been trying to change their level. If on the side of West Ham, the start was bad, we can’t say the same about Bournemouth, that kicked off with an important victory in the Premier League.
For this match, Manuel Pellegrini’s team has some problems. Andy Carroll, Reid and Lanzini have suffered serious injuries and will still be absent.
The team has beaten the rising Cardiff by 2-0 as hosts and they’ve conquered their first 3 points on the competition.

I won’t say that West Ham was expected to lose against Liverpool. But we’re talking about the European vice-champions and one of the favourites to winning the Premier League title.
I believe that, despite the weight of the battering, we can consider that is a comprehensible result.
West Ham vs Bournemouth – Betting Tip and Prediction:
But the situation here changes picture. Playing at home, facing a theoretically more accessible team, the pressure for West Ham to win is higher.
And I believe that they have built a roster capable of doing well here.
Due to the uncertainty and since the team still doesn’t have a defined style, protecting myself from a draw seems to be a correct risk management decision.
