West Ham vs Southampton: West Ham hosts Southampton this Saturday at
the Olympic Stadium in London, on a Premier League match.
In crisis, the team from London needs to win, because they are in danger of getting on the competition’s relegation zone. That’s because they are precisely facing a direct rival on the fight to avoid relegation. Southampton has 28 points and occupies the 18th place.
As for West Ham, they are in 17th place with 30 points. If they lose here, they are guaranteed to descend onto the relegation zone, which would be very disappointing.
Playing as hosts, West Ham has 5 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses, with 16 goals scored and 20 goals conceded so far.

Making an equally disappointing campaign, Southampton is on the desperate role of fighting to avoid relegation.
The team is currently only in 18th place with 28 points and if the league ended right now, they would be automatically relegated. As visitors, they have 2 wins, 6 draws and 6 losses, having scored 13 goals and conceded 23 so far.
I don’t need to say anything else about this being a direct duel to avoid relegation here. West Ham has been disappointing considering the investment that was made and the expectation they had surrounding them after a poor season last year.
But once again, the team is fighting to avoid relegation to the Championship.
In fact, neither of these teams inspires a lot of confidence. And precisely because of that, I don’t find any objective reasons for the odds to be so high in favour of the home side here.
West Ham vs Southampton – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Both teams are living poor moments of form, but I see more technical potential on the side of West Ham.
This overvaluing of Southampton isn’t news on the Premier League and I believe we can take advantage of it again on this scenario.
