Bournemouth will be eyeing their third win in a row when they welcome Westham United at their Vitality Stadium in their matchday 7. Westham, on the other hand, will be hoping to extend their unbeaten run in the premier league to 6 matches in a row. This match will be played on Saturday 28th September 2019 starting from 15:00GMT.
The Cherries outwitted Southampton while playing away in a 1-3 triumph in their last Premier League action. Prior to that, they had done the same to Everton with the same scoreline. They are thus looking forward to third consecutive premier league win of the season. With Callum Wilson on the lead, it seems like Bournemouth have been scoring goals for fun this season.
Westham on their other hand gave their fans something to smile about in a 2-0 triumph over Manchester United last weekend. The capital club climbed to the fourth position of the Premier league table. Apart from their upsetting 5-0 loss to Manchester City in their Premier League opening match, the Hammers have managed to shy away from defeat ever since. They are thus eyeing their 6th match unbeaten with 2 of them being draws while 3 are straight wins.
Both teams seem to be equally placed. Bournemouth has shown signs of unrelenting power to score as many goals as possible. On the other hand, Westham is not ready to lose the match and fall off the warmth of being among the top four in the Premier League table. With this in mind, the teams are likely to go on each other full- trot. Putting all factors in play, we believe there is great value betting for a draw.
