West Ham vs. Liverpool Betting Tips: Jota a generous price to hit the target in London
Liverpool travel to the capital to take on West Ham on Wednesday evening and we’ve asked Anthony Eadson to provide us with his best bets for the game, which includes a 19/2 longshot.
After progressing to the last-four of the Europa Conference League last week, West Ham followed up with a thumping 4-0 victory away at Bournemouth on Sunday. The Hammers sit 13th in the table on 34 points and one more victory would all but secure their Premier League status for another year after an underwhelming domestic campaign.
Liverpool have scored nine goals across their last two league matches, with 6-1 and 3-2 wins over relegation threatened Leeds United and Nottingham Forest. Liverpool sit seventh heading into the midweek slate, although Jurgen Klopp’s side do have a game in hand over the two sides just above them, Aston Villa in sixth and Spurs in fifth.
West Ham vs Liverpool Tips
Mohammed Salah scored his 183rd goal for Liverpool in the win over Nottingham Forest last weekend taking him level with Robbie Fowler on the clubs list of all time top scorers.
Diogo Jota found the net twice against The Tricky Trees and he could equal a record of his own on Wednesday by becoming the first Liverpool player to score a brace in three consecutive league matches since Luis Suarez back in 2013.
After an injury-riddled season Jota looks to be back in strong form with four goals across his last two matches. Both Liverpool and West Ham’s last three matches in all competitions have seen Over 3.5 goals land and I think we could be in for another high scoring affair here.
However, for the main play from the London Stadium, I’m backing Jota to register Over 0.5 Shots on target at 7/10 with Unibet. Paddy Power, Betfair and BetVictor all go just 1/3 for this same selection and with bet365 slightly bigger at 2/5, there’s no denying that this is a price-based play with Unibet being such a stand-out best price.
I’ve also had a little tickle on Diogo Jota to score and Fabinho to be carded. I’ve already mentioned how well Jota has performed in his last two matches and with Liverpool firing on all cylinders in the final third, I expect them to score at least two here with hopefully Jota getting on the scoresheet.
I’ve paired this up with Fabinho to be carded which takes us to 19/2 with Paddy Power. No player has collected more cards for The Reds this season, with the midfielder being shown nine yellows. The majority of these cautions have come in the last few months with Fabinho picking up seven of them in his last 10 league outings! Chris Kavanagh takes the whistle for this game and he averages bang on 4 yellows per game across the nine matches he has taken control of this term.
