One of the most exciting Premier League matches this weekend is the one taking place at the Olympic Stadium in London, where the Hammers will welcome the Toffees. If you’re looking for some West Ham vs Everton prediction and betting tips you’re at the right place. Let’s start the previous by discussing the form of the home team!
The Hammers are currently at the 9th place, which is actually what they had been hoping for before the season started. Their fans, as well as their players and management, are aware that they don’t have the quality to compete for a place among the top six. However, they also know that this team should not have any relegation worries. And that was the case early on in the season when they got themselves in a very bad spot following a series of poor results.
But, those days are long gone. The Hammers are in a pretty decent form at the moment, especially when it comes to the matches played on their turf. West Ham have won eight home games in total, four of which happened in 2019. Actually, since the start of the year, West Ham are without a defeat at the Olympic Stadium.
And that’s a really impressive fact, especially considering that they played against such heavyweights as Liverpool and Arsenal in those matches. Of course, this doesn’t necessarily make them a huge favorite against Everton, particularly because they have some problems with injuries. And considering that these two teams are of similar quality, it’s not easy to predict the winner. That’s exactly why our West Ham vs Everton prediction will not focus only on the outcome of the game but on goals as well.
Similarly to West Ham, Everton are also a team that’s expected to finish somewhere in the middle of the Premier League table. Right now, they’re at the 11th place, which isn’t bad but their fans think this team can do more.
The problem with Everton is that they haven’t been very consistent this season. And that’s why we need to be careful with West Ham vs Everton betting tips – you never know what to expect from the Toffees. For instance, they played a draw with Liverpool at the start of the month only to lose to Newcastle in the next round.
And in the previous Premier League round, they beat mighty Chelsea, which was one of their best performances this season. But, this isn’t the only reason why they’re very optimistic ahead of their trip to London. The thing is that they have a very good record against West Ham, especially in matches played in the English capital. They lost only one game in the last decade, winning three and playing draw on four occasions.
Another thing that’s making them optimistic is that they finally have no injury worries. I say finally, because they’ve been struggling a lot with injuries this season, which is one of the main reasons why they’re not a few spots higher on the Premier League table.

West Ham vs Everton Prediction
A draw seems like the most plausible outcome, but a much safer betting option is to play on goals. We should see them on both ends.
