Huddersfield Town v West Ham United Betting Predictions and Match Preview
Huddersfield and West Ham are separated by just two points in a highly-congested bottom-half of the Premier League table, so both teams will be desperate to secure the win that would pull them further away from the relegation zone.
The fact that our KickOff predictive algorithm can find just 3% to separate the victory chances of the two teams, however, suggests that a draw (27% chance) could well be on the cards for the third consecutive game at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Last season’s score
Although there have not been too many meetings between these clubs in recent times, it is interesting to note that the home side has triumphed in each of their previous six clashes in all competitions, so the Terriers should draw confidence from this particular statistic.
If David Wagner’s men are to come out on top, then 1-0 (11% chance) is seen as being their most likely route to glory, though 1-1 (13% chance), 0-0 (8% chance) and 0-1 (10% chance) are also feasible results in what should be a close contest.
Top betting tips and predictions
The Yorkshire outfit have won plenty of friends in their debut Premier League campaign, but it would be wrong to say that they have been involved in their fair share of exciting matches of late, with five of their last eight games serving up under 2.5 goals (55% chance).
Opportunities could well be at a premium in this contest, so the men in position to take them have to be considered amongst the contenders to break the deadlock, namely Steve Mounie (13% chance) and Tom Ince (10% chance) for the hosts and Andy Carroll (12% chance) and Javier Hernandez (12% chance) for the visitors.
