Fulham vs West Ham Betting Tips

  • Over 3.5 goals - 2/1
  • Jarrod Bowen to score anytime - 9/4

Match Odds

Fulham are 11/8 to pick up a second-straight victory on home soil. You can back a draw at 12/5, while West Ham are 15/8 to pick up another three points on the road.

Both teams to score in this one is valued at 8/13. Over 2.5 goals is on offer at 4/5.

Team News

Fulham are going to be without Issa Diop and Rodrigio Muniz for the visit of the Hammers, while Adama Traore is a doubt to feature.

After missing the victory over Tottenham in midweek, goalkeeper Alphonse Areola could be set to miss a second successive match. Michail Antonio is the only other major concern David Moyes has heading into the weekend.

Over 3.5 goals @ 2/1

Both these sides had their scoring boots on in their last outings. Fulham were rampant as they fired five goals past Forest, while West Ham put two past Spurs. This could set us up for a frantic encounter in west London, and we think that there are more goals to be had at the Cottage.

West Ham have been in better form over the course of their last five games in the league with three wins, but Fulham have picked up two victories themselves, and we are starting to see more of the side that finished in the top-half last term.

The attacking players on both sides will be heading into Sunday in impressive form so we could be in store to see goals fly in at both ends in SW6.

Jarrod Bowen to score anytime @ 9/4

One attacking player who is in the best form from both these sides is West Ham's Jarrod Bowen. He levelled the score against Tottenham on Thursday thanks to some reactionary thinking and a composed finish. The attacker has been thriving playing through the middle for the Hammers in the absence of Antonio. Bowen has loved netting on the road this season.

In scoring, he became the third player in Premier League history to score in seven consecutive away games, after Robin van Persie and Sergio Aguero. With the way he is playing at the moment, we reckon that he will make it eight games in a row when gets a run out at Craven Cottage this weekend.
