West Ham United - Southampton betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 16:00 on 26/12/2021 played @ London Stadium refereed by Kevin Friend

West Ham United might be heading into this game as firm favourites to get a win but they will have their work cut out for them as Southampton are known to be highly unpredictable and capable of pulling a surprise when it is least expected.

The Saints appear severely unprepared for a clash with West Ham, to the point of being considered hard underdogs. We would consider even a draw a success, so the long 4.30 odds for an away win bit seem fitting.

The Hammers lost an away game at Arsenal in the previous round. The entire match was an uphill battle for them, and top online bookmakers priced an away win at odds of 3.40. As such, the 2:0 was somewhat predictable, even though The Hammers managed to maintain a stalemate in the first half.

The Saints unexpectedly took the lead in the first half of their previous Premier League match at Crystal Palace. Considering Southampton were visitors with odds of 3.80 to win, it was quite a pleasant surprise for their fans – even if the match ended in a 2:2 draw.

West Ham’s attackers have been seeing a lot of success lately, even in away matches. For instance, they scored 7 times during the course of their previous three away games.

Results and standings notwithstanding, Southampton have run into some defensive issues in this stretch of the Premier League. In the past 3 matches, they allowed more than 5 goals to their opponents, which may be cause for concern for their supporters.

The Hammers are currently near the top of the ladder with a 5th position. Still, they’ll need to do better if their goal is higher than the Europa League, and this Sunday offers a great chance to work towards that goal.

If there’s one thing to note about the history of this matchup, it’s a fact their matches tend to end in a draw. Several matches this season ended inconclusively, so it neems neither team is able to reliably tip the scales one way or another.

The odds being what they are, remember that they were priced with various injuries in mind. The hosts reported that Ryan Fredericks, Ben Johnson, Angelo Ogbonna, Kurt Zouma will have to sit this one out, while The Saints will have to make do without Fraser Forster, Alex McCarthy, Stuart Armstrong, Che Adams.

Based on both teams’ previous performances, an Over 2.5 Goals bet is very likely to win. The returns are somewhat limited at the odds of 1.76, but it’s still an incredibly safe bet.
