West Ham vs Aston Villa Match Preview and Prediction

West Ham vs Aston Villa: In their last three Premier League games, West Ham have scored nine goals. Villa has conceded two goals or more in four of the previous five league games. Jarrod Bowen has scored 14 goals in 27 league games this season, making him the top-scoring Hammer.

The final Premier League match before the international break will feature a match between West Ham and Aston Villa. At London Stadium on Sunday afternoon in Matchday No. 29, the two teams in the top half will face off. On Thursday night, both teams played in their respective European matches.

Seven days ago, West Ham managed to stave off a loss to Burnley at home. It is impossible to consider a 2-2 draw against the league’s bottom team at home as a victory for David Moyes’ squad, though. On this occasion, we saw the well-known defensive flaws in West Ham once more.

Last Saturday, Aston Villa’s performance was even worse. Seven days ago, Unai Emery’s team lost badly to direct rivals 0–4 at home in the fight for a top-four finish. Last Sunday, Spurs proved to be too strong for Villa’s high line as they defeated the Villains 4-1 in a row.

West Ham vs Aston Villa: Betting Analysis

In the rematch, held in Birmingham in October of last year, Aston Villa crushed the Hammers 4-1. In the 52 previous home games versus the Villains, West Ham has, however, recorded 24 victories, 20 draws, and just 8 losses.
In the eight prior head-to-head meetings, both teams were accurate, with the exception of one.

Recently, neither West Ham nor Aston Villa have played well on defense. The last six Premier League games saw the Hammers give up two goals or more in five of them. However, they had scored as many as nine goals in the preceding three games.

Additionally, Villa had given up two goals or more in four of their previous five league games. Given that both teams have scored goals in seven of the past eight head-to-head matches between these rivals, our only choice is to support the Over 2.5 goals & Both Teams To Score selection at 1.80 odds.

Jarrod Bowen scored against Freiburg midweek. He netted a hat-trick in a 4-2 home win over Brentford three weeks ago. The 27-year-old Englishman leads West Ham in league scoring with 14 goals in 27 games. Our prediction of a high-scoring game on Sunday makes Jarrod Bowen’s anytime score at 3.10 odds great value.
