Bitesize Prediction: Bournemouth vs West Ham – 23/04/23

Competition: Premier League

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 5/6 @ 888sport

Two sides still firmly looking over their shoulder at the drop zone, Bournemouth will welcome West Ham to the Vitality on Sunday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, last seen putting in a stunning display away at top-four hopefuls Tottenham, Bournemouth are in the midst of what has been a stellar purple patch. Eventually snatching a remarkable 3-2 win in north London, the mood in Gary O’Neil’s camp should be at a season-high. Skyrocketing their way up the Premier League table and looking to make another top-flight statement here, the Cherries have now won four of their last six appearances. Marking their return from March’s international break with a 2-1 victory at home against Fulham, Sunday’s hosts have also collected nine points from their previous four Premier League matchups. Really finding a clinical edge in the final third over the past few weeks, O’Neil’s side have also gained a reputation for their lively outings. It should be highlighted, Bournemouth have seen five of their last seven appearances at the Vitality finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, punching their Europa Conference League semi-final ticket earlier in the week thanks to a 4-1 romp against Gent, West Ham have managed to find some crucial momentum at a vital time. Last seen in Premier League action mounting a stellar comeback on home soil as they claimed an action-packed 2-2 draw against title contenders Arsenal, David Moyes’ men have now lost just one of their last nine appearances across all competitions. With that run stemming all the way back to March 2nd, West Ham should be excited by their most recent meeting against Sunday’s hosts. Claiming a 2-0 win when they welcomed Bournemouth to the London Stadium on October 24th, neutrals could be treated to an enjoyable showdown this weekend. With the Hammers seeing four of their last five outings finish with both teams finding the net, we are expecting a similar outcome from the south coast here.
