West Ham United host West Bromwich Albion in round 18 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Tuesday, January 19th at Olympic Stadium (London)
West Ham has not lost in the last four matches of the championship. The team won the last two games, but I want you to pay attention to the fact that the Hammers played with Under 1.5 goals scored in the last three meetings. And it is strange since the goal difference of West Ham is 25-21 after 18 rounds, that is, more than two goals scored on average per match. In the previous 15 rounds, only two matches were played with such an outcome. It can already be assumed that there will be no such low scoring in the performance of West Ham now. And if you look closely at the upcoming opponent, then all doubts about this will disappear.

West Bromwich gained victory over Wolverhampton in the last round (2-3), thus ending its 7-match winless streak, during which it suffered five defeats. However, even this local success did not allow the Throstles to leave the penultimate place in the standings. Noteworthy is the number of goals conceded by West Brom (41 in 18 matches), and this is the worst indicator in the league. The closest neighbors in terms of conceded goals have only 29 goals in their passive. And the victory over Wolverhampton was only the 2nd in the championship, while the Throstles were defeated 11 times.
West Bromwich will surely not be able to score three points for the second time in a row. West Ham will be extremely against such a development of events. And the Hammers can back up the validity of their protest by good results in 15 out of 20 last 20 head-to-head matches. In the current championship, West Ham suffered only five defeats and lost only two times in nine home rounds. West Bromwich has nothing to object to this except for the last victory in the tournament. As for the number of goals scored, the hosts can arrange two on their own (we remember about 41 goals conceded by the Throstles). I will add the Hammers scored at least two goals against their opponent in four of the last six head-to-head meetings. But the Throstles can also snap back. After all, they managed to score 14 times in the championship. Thus, it is quite possible to count on at least two goals scored in this confrontation, and West Ham’s fans will not be disappointed with their team's loss.
Prediction for the match: West Ham to win with +0.5 handicap and Over 1.5 goals scored
