Viborg vs. West Ham Betting Tips: Best bets for the Hammers' trip to Denmark
Viborg vs West Ham Odds
West Ham travel to Viborg live on BT Sport in the second leg of their Europa Conference League playoff tie on Thursday night. After correctly tipping Gianluca Scamacca to score first seven days ago, @AnthonyEadson returns and has previewed the action and provided you with his best bets.
David Moyes’ men take a 3-1 lead over to Denmark after a positive result at the London Stadium in the first leg. Gianluca Scamacca, Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio were on the scoresheet for the Hammers, although they did not have it all their own way with the visitors finding the net through Jakob Bonde as well as creating a handful of good chances.
It’s been a tricky start to the Premier League season for West Ham who currently occupy 20th position in the table after losses against Nottingham Forest, Brighton and Manchester City. Coach Moyes now has decisions to make on whether to rest his main stars for this game with a crucial fixture against Aston Villa in the league on Sunday.
Alphonse Areola is expected to return in goal for West Ham, while Gianluca Scamacca and Flynn Downes are both in line for starts. Declan Rice will not feature as he serves the second of his two game European ban.
Viborg vs West Ham
One player who caught the eye when starting in the Europa Conference League for the Hammers last week was Maxwel Cornet who arrived this summer from relegated Burnley. The Ivorian provided the assist for Ginaluca Scamacca’s opening goal and also let off two shots in the match as well as another two key passes.
For Burnley in the Premier League last season, Cornet scored an impressive nine goals in his first year in English football at a rate of 0.46 goals per 90 minutes. Another impressive stat from his time under Sean Dyche was that Maxwel Cornet averaged over a shot on target per 90 minutes (1.12) in the top-flight in 2021/2022.
Skybet go 3/1 and Betfred 11/4 for Cornet to find the net anytime in the match on Thursday which looks an attractive price considering there is a strong chance he lines up in attack for the Hammers and should play the full 90 as he did last week.
Cornet will be itching to open his account for his new club and I've also decided to have a bit of spare change on him to score two or more goals in the match. Skybet are best priced at 22/1 at the time of writing with other firms such as Boyle Sports and Betfred. The 25-year-old only bagged himself one brace in his short time at Burnley, but considering the lower quality opponents on Thursday evening I think this price holds some value, especially with the same bet priced at just 9/2 over at William Hill.
