Manchester United v West Ham United Premier League Betting Tips 22/01/2022

Manchester United v West Ham United

At the beginning of the season, Manchester United vs West Ham United may not have been considered a key top-four clash. However, the Hammers come into the match ahead of the Red Devils in the standings, so we decided to produce our Manchester United v West Ham United Premier League Betting Tips 22/01/2022. Currently, the fourth spot (or an even higher position) is West Ham’s to win or lose after an impressive season so far. For United, any finish lower than fourth will be a disappointment, and Ralf Rangnick’s side know how big a home win against West Ham could be this Saturday. This clash kicks off at 3p.m at Old Trafford. 

Team News/Form

Man United beat Brentford 3-1 away on Wednesday. It was the Red Devil’s first Premier League win in three, following a 2-2 draw at Villa and a 1-0 home loss against Wolves. West Ham lost 3-2 in a home loss against Leeds on Sunday, their first defeat in five after a four-match winning streak in all competitions. The Hammers previously recorded 2-0 wins against Norwich in the Premier League and Leeds in the FA Cup. 

Edinson Cavani (knock), Luke Shaw (thigh), Eric Bailly (AFCON), Aaron Wan-Bissaka (illness) and Paul Pogba (groin) are out for United. Jadon Sancho should return to the squad. West Ham’s Mark Noble (knee), Kurt Zouma (thigh), Said Benrahma (knock) and Angelo Ogbonna (knee) are ruled out. Tomas Soucek may be back in contention.

Matchwinner Betting Odds

The matchwinner odds for the Man United vs West Ham contest show the home side as the clear favourites to take all three points. Given United have won four of their last six at Old Trafford in all competitions, there is some decent value on William Hill‘s odds of 10/11. With just one win in their last five against Man United, a Hammers victory seems more unlikely. The East Londoners have also won just once in their last 18 visits to Old Trafford, although they did defeat the Red Devil’s 1-0 in the EFL Cup this season. The odds for a Hammers’ win are longer, with 3/1 provided by Betfred. However, our tip this Saturday is to back a draw. West Ham are in good away form, winning their last two, while United are in decent home form. At 20/7, provided by VBet, there is decent value on a stalemate at Old Trafford.

BTTS Betting – Yes

Goals are expected in Manchester for this fixture. Man United and West Ham have been amongst the goals recently, but they have also struggled for clean sheets. United have seen both teams score in four of their last five Premier League matches, and the Red Devils have failed to keep a clean sheet in five league fixtures. West Ham has seen similar results away recently. David Moyes’ side has scored and conceded in their last three on the road, and failed to keep a clean sheet in their last four away. At 4/6 odds, William Hill will provide the best value returns on BTTS Yes. 

Anytime Goalscorer Betting Market

There is some decent additional value to be found in the anytime goalscorer market this weekend. For United, 19-year-old Anthony Elanga has broken into the starting XI and looked dangerous. The forward scored his first senior goal against Brentford on Wednesday, and QuinnBet will return 3/1 for the talented player to net again. But, our goalscorer pick for this fixture comes from West Ham’s ranks. Jarrod Bowen is in top form and the midfielder has scored four goals in his last three matches, including a brace in the 2-0 win against Leeds. At 7/2 odds, provided by 888Sport, amongst other bookies, there is good value on another Bowen goal. 

Man United must add more consistency at home if they want to break into the top four this season. West Ham, however, has shown their ability to shock the big boys by defending their potential Champions League place. Given the recent form of these sides, an upset could be on the cards.
