West Ham are 12th on the table with just 1 win in their last 5 starts.  They are coming off back-to-back away defeats to Wolves and Bournemouth and failed to score a goal in either match.  Their home form has been mixed this season with 5 wins and 5 defeats in their 12 matches and West Ham home games averaged 2.9 goals with 7 of the 12 matches delivering for over 2.5 goal backers.

Liverpool top the table by 2 points from Manchester City with a game in hand.  They were disappointing in their last start, letting a 1-0 lead slip before drawing 1-1 at home to Leicester but they have only lost 1 of their 12 away matches, winning 9 times on the road this season.  Liverpool away games have been amongst the lowest scoring in the League, averaging 2.5 goals each with 50% of the games reaching 3 goals or more.

Liverpool trounced West Ham 4-0 in the reverse fixture earlier this season, incredibly that was the 4th successive League match where Liverpool had scored 4 goals against West Ham and the last 5 League matches between the sides have delivered over 3.5 goals in total.

Suggested bet:  Handicap, Liverpool (-1), the draw at 57/20

Liverpool haven’t been in the rampant form they ended 2018 in, but I fancy them to grind out a victory against West Ham and for this bet to arrive I need them to win by exactly 1 goal.
