West Ham and Burnley will both be relatively pleased with their recent Premier League form and this is a tough match to call on that evidence.
It is worth noting that the Clarets have a good record against the Hammers, though, winning the last three head-to-head battles and only losing one in six.
We think 9/10 for Sean Dyche’s side to avoid defeat again here is a solid selection for our first West Ham vs Burnley prediction.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham have only lost to Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea in their last 15 top-flight fixtures.
The Hammers followed up a 1-0 win at in-form Everton by beating Stockport in the FA Cup, thanks to Craig Dawson’s late header in difficult weather conditions.
Dawson told the club website: “The lads put in a great shift and it’s great to keep another clean sheet.
“As we saw with the other ties this weekend, it’s not easy coming to grounds like this, so it was a great performance from the lads.”
United are certainly proving hard to beat, but they did only draw their last two home matches versus Crystal Palace and Brighton.
We feel 5/2 for another stalemate here makes sense from the West Ham vs Burnley odds.
Last West Ham line-up: Randolph, Coufal, Dawson, Ogbonna, Johnson, Rice, Lanzini, Noble, Yarmolenko, Benrahma, Antonio.
Goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is set to return for West Ham at Darren Randolph’s expense after a thigh problem. Wing-back Arthur Masuaku is still recovering from knee surgery.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley couldn’t stop Manchester United from going top of the table at Turf Moor on Tuesday but were competitive throughout that 1-0 defeat.
“A lot of the performance was good, I thought, against a top side who are playing very well,” said Clarets boss Dyche.
“We’re in good form ourselves but they are a top side, they’ve got some very good individuals, as well as a collective.
“But I thought our performance was effective and was certainly something we can build on.”
The Lancashire outfit had picked up four wins and three draws from their previous nine league games, only losing away to Manchester City and Leeds, where they were a touch unfortunate.
Chris Wood has haunted West Ham in the past, scoring in five of the last six meetings between these sides.
Let’s go with 9/2 for the New Zealand international to break the deadlock at London Stadium as our final West Ham vs Burnley prediction.
Last Burnley line-up: Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters, Gudmundsson, Brownhill, Brady, Westwood, Wood, Barnes.
Full-back Charlie Taylor, sidelined since suffering a hamstring injury at the end of last month, is Burnley’s only doubt.
Dwight McNeil returned from a groin problem as a substitute against United and could start, while striker Matej Vydra is also pushing for inclusion.
