Irons striker Andy Carroll has another injury and looks likely to miss these West Ham v Huddersfield predictions. Andriy Yarmolenko, Jack Wilshere, Carlos Sanchez and Winston Reid are all long-term injury problems for the Hammers. Javier Hernandez has been keeping Marko Arnautovic out of the team in recent games, so Manuel Pellegrini has to decide which striker to start with here.

Things are already really bad for Huddersfield, so they could do without all the injuries they have at the moment. Jonathan Hogg, Danny Williams, Isaac Mbenza and Adama Diakhaby are all out of this football prediction. Laurent Depoitre, Terence Kongolo and Demeaco Duhaney are all doubts, but Tommy Smith is back from a ban.


West Ham vs Huddersfield prediction, preview and betting tips

Huddersfield start this game 16 points from safety. With only 24 left to play for, it’s pretty safe to say they’re getting relegated. West Ham meanwhile could still get Europa League football, but they have to win this game. Can the Hammers keep their European dreams alive by taking the three points in this weekend’s football predictions? 

West Ham are unbeaten in their last six home games, winning four of those. That run includes a win against Arsenal and draw with Liverpool, so it hasn’t been easy. The Irons lost 2-0 away to Cardiff City last weekend though, which was a poor result. After beating the Terriers 2-0 at home and 4-1 away last season, the Hammers are 4/7 to win this West Ham vs Huddersfield prediction. 

The away team still have pride to play for this season though. With 19th-placed Fulham playing Liverpool on Sunday, Huddersfield can move off the bottom of the table with a win. That doesn’t seem likely though. The Terriers have only won one of their last 18 fixtures, losing 16. They’ve only won one of their 14 away games this season, losing 10 times. 

Huddersfield have only scored eight goals in those 14 matches, while West Ham have only conceded two in their last five at home. You can bet against both teams scoring in your free betting tips and predictions at 3/4 with bet365. The home team are 6/4 with the same bookmaker to win this game to nil in your West Ham vs Huddersfield betting tips. 

West Ham won their last home game 2-0 against Newcastle United. The Hammers have scored 11 goals in their last six home games, and average exactly two goals a game against teams not in the ‘big six’ at home this season. Pellegrini’s side are 13/2 to win this game 2-0 as part of your football score predictions this weekend. Those odds rise to 29/1 with Irons top scorer Felipe Anderson scoring first. 

West Ham vs Huddersfield first goalscorer predictions

As we’re not sure if Arnautovic will come back into the starting line-up for Hernandez, Anderson could be a good pick in the first goalscorer odds. The Brazilian forward is 11/2 to open the scoring or 17/1 to score either of West Ham’s goals in a 2-0 home win. Steve Mounie meanwhile is 12/1 to break the deadlock after getting the only goal of the game in Huddersfield’s recent win against Wolves.
