Our Betting Tips for West Ham vs Leeds

Here are our Premier League predictions for a big game at the bottom of the table. West Ham progressed through to the final of the Conference League in midweek so there is bound to be a party atmosphere at the London Stadium this weekend. The Hammers still need a point from their last two games to ensure they remain in the Premier League and they play host to a Leeds side that will really need a win on Sunday as they bid to escape the drop.

Both Teams to Score

Our first West Ham vs Leeds prediction is for both teams to score. Five of the last seven meetings between these two clubs in league and cup have ended with both teams getting on the scoreboard, and we're expecting more of the same this weekend. West Ham have only failed to score in two of their last six matches in all competitions while both teams have scored in each of Leeds' 11 matches, so you can see why we're backing BTTS on Sunday.

Over 2.5 Goals

Our second West Ham vs Leeds prediction concerns the total goals scored by both teams. We're hopeful of goals on Sunday as four of the last six encounters between West Ham and Leeds have produced over 2.5 goals. There are more reasons to expect goals in this game as three of West Ham's and five of Leeds' last six matches in league and cup have witnessed at least three goals scored.

West Ham vs Leeds Lineups and Last Match

West Ham

West Ham suffered a 2-0 defeat away at Brentford last time out, and it seems like their focus has been on European football rather than the Premier League even though the Hammers aren't quite safe just yet. Gianluca Scamacca is the main injury concern for the hosts this weekend but the mood around the London Stadium should be very positive following their midweek success in the Conference League.

Predicted Lineup – Fabiański (GK), Ogbonna, Emerson, Aguerd, Johnson, Lanzini, Souček, Fornals, Downes, Ings & Cornet 

Leeds

Leeds will be disappointed that they failed to win at home to Newcastle, despite the obvious class difference between the two sides. Leeds took the lead through Ayling in the 7th-minute but conceded two penalties which Wilson converted and needed a 79th-minute equaliser from Kristensen to secure a point in the end. Firpo got himself sent-off in stoppage-time so Allardyce will be without his left-back this weekend. Dallas, Sinisterra, Adams, Cooper and Roca are all doubts for the trip to the capital due to injury.

Predicted Lineup – Robles (GK), Ayling, Koch, Struijk, Wöber, Kristensen, Harrison, McKennie, Rodrigo, Bamford & Greenwood

Player to Watch: Said Benrahma

West Ham's Algerian star top scores for the Hammers this season with 6 Premier League goals. Four of those strikes have arrived in the form of penalty kicks but that shouldn't take away from the impact Benrahma has had on West Ham this season.

The Hammers need a point this weekend to confirm their place in the Premier League but if results elsewhere go in their favour they could afford to lose this game. With much of the club's focus seemingly on the Conference League final against Fiorentina, Leeds will fancy their chances of causing an upset this weekend.

However, this is the final home game of the season for the Hammers and they will want to go out on a high. We're expecting a very close game with perhaps just one goal separating the two clubs and we're backing Benhrahma to either add to his 6 goals or 3 assists due to Leeds' very leaky defence.
