West Ham vs Everton betting tips: Premier League preview & predictions

David Moyes

West Ham vs Everton 101 Great Goals prediction: West Ham 1-1 Everton

The Hammers will be looking to bounce back from their recent defeat, while Everton look to continue their impressive form.

The Hammers have looked much more regimented under new boss David Moyes.

He started his second West Ham spell with a 4-0 win over Bournemouth but suffered the first defeat of his latest tenure last weekend.

Meanwhile, at Moyes’ former club, Everton are in a rich vein of form.

The Toffees have only lost one league game in their last seven, with that defeat coming at the hands of Manchester City.

With that in mind, it will no doubt be a difficult task for Moyes’ men to keep at least some of the points in London on Saturday.

West Ham vs Everton: Who will win?

Despite the odds being pretty close for this clash, it is Everton who go into the game as favourites.

The Toffees are priced at 11/8 to win the game in London.

Meanwhile, West Ham are the outsiders and are priced at 19/10 to outwit David Moyes’ former employers.

A draw can be found priced at 12/5 and looks to be the best option.

Moyes’ West Ham look to be well drilled and Everton will likely find them hard to break down.

The Toffees have also struggled on the road this season, though they did beat Newcastle away from home recently.

Expect this to be a tight affair.

Both teams to score and a draw is priced at an attractive 10/3, while both teams not to score and a draw is 10/1.

Everton draw no bet is also a decent option if you fancy Carlo Ancelotti’s Toffees, priced at 8/11.

Moving onto the goalscorer market and there are a few options here.

Sébastien Haller is the favourite to score first according to the bookmakers, priced at 9/2.

The Frenchman scored in the 4-0 win over Bournemouth recently.

He’s then followed by Richarlison and Jeremy Ngakia, West Ham’s 19-year-old starlet, at 5/1.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is having his best-ever goalscoring season and is priced at 11/2 to score first, while Michail Antonio is priced at 8/1.

Our pick actually goes to heavy outsider Bernard, who is priced at a whopping 14/1 to score first.

The Brazilian was fantastic during Everton’s win over Brighton and got himself in some brilliant positions to score, but his efforts were thwarted by last-ditch blocks.

At that price, there’s plenty of value if he can produce another performance like that.

West Ham vs Everton match preview

West Ham have looked much better following the appointment of David Moyes.

Manuel Pellegrini’s tenure came to an end at the back end of December, as West Ham slipped towards the relegation zone.

David Moyes has brought back at least some positivity around the club.

The Scot started his second tenure in charge of West Ham with an emphatic 4-0 win over Bournemouth.

The Hammers then progressed in the FA Cup, beating Gillingham 2-0.

Unfortunately, Moyes’ run came to an end when they were defeated by Sheffield United in their last game.

West Ham actually thought they had escaped with a point, but a late Robert Snodgrass goal was ruled out for a Declan Rice handball in the build-up.

Under Moyes, West Ham look defensively solid and a threat in attack.

Everton must not take them for granted at the London Stadium this weekend.

Can the Toffees continue their late push for Europe?

Everton, despite being a team in free fall not too long ago, have a serious chance of European football this season.

The Toffees are currently sat 11th in the Premier League, but are just six points behind 5th placed Manchester United.

The teams above them also have some very difficult fixtures coming up, so the clash with West Ham is almost a must-win for Everton.

Since Carlo Ancelotti took over, Everton have only lost one game in the Premier League.

That came at the hands of Manchester City, while the Toffees have beaten Burnley, Newcastle and Brighton.

Their performances have no doubt improved, with Ancelotti sticking with a 4-4-2 formation that pushes into a 3-5-2 in transition.

This new setup has certainly worked, with Everton looking solid in defence and a threat in attack.

If the Toffees can win this game, then there’s no reason why they can’t make a late dash for European football next season.
