West Ham welcome Premier League new boys Brentford to the London Stadium on Sunday and we have looked at the odds to find some West Ham v Brentford betting tips.

The Hammers return from Europa League action looking to build on last weekend’s 2-1 win at Leeds, while Brentford held Liverpool to a draw at home.

West Ham came from behind to defeat Leeds 2-1 at Elland Road last weekend with Michail Antonio netting a ruthless, last-gasp winner.

It put them into seventh place in the Premier League table, three points behind leaders Liverpool and two places and two points above Brentford, who held the Reds to a 3-3 draw at the Brentford Community Stadium.

West Ham are 1.8 to down the Bees, although they do not have a great record against opponents who are in the top flight for the first time. They have lost their last four against such sides – Wigan (2005-06), Reading (2006-07), Hull (2008-09) and Bournemouth (2015-16).

They do have a good recent home record, however. Only Manchester City (34) and Tottenham (28) have earned more points in home Premier League games in 2021 so far than West Ham (26).

While they were unfortunate to lose 2-1 at home to Manchester United, the Hammers have not lost back-to-back home games since David Moyes returned to manage them in January 2020. They come into this match after defeating Rapid Vienna 2-0 at home in the Europa League on Thursday behind goals from Declan Rice and Said Benrahma.

Brentford have two wins and a draw from their three away games thus far and their only defeat at all venues came at the hands of Brighton, who stole the points with a last-gasp winner three weeks ago. They salvaged a point against Liverpool last week when Yoane Wissa equalised eight minutes from time. Ethan Pinnock and Vitaly Janelt also netted for Brentford, who twice came back from a goal down after taking an early lead.

The Bees, who are 4.6 to win, have had the benefit of a settled side, making just three changes to their starting XI this season.

Very few teams go unbeaten in their first four away matches, but Thomas Frank’s side are 3.7 to draw the game, while it is evens that they win or draw the game on the Double Chance market.

This is the first league meeting between West Ham and Brentford since April 1993, when the Hammers won 4-0 at Upton Park in a campaign that saw West Ham promoted and the Bees relegated from the second tier.

Each of the previous 20 league games between the sides took place in the second tier, with Brentford’s last win against West Ham coming in the 1953-54 season (though they’ve only met in 1992-93 since then).

The Hammers have conceded at least once in each of their three home games, while Brentford have netted 12 goals in their last three games in all competitions.

It is 1.8 that both sides score in the West Ham v Brentford betting tips.

Verdict

Both teams are coming off strong performances so we expect this match to result in a draw.
