WEST HAM will be looking to continue their strong start to the season when they lock horns with Brentford at the London Stadium on Sunday.

The Hammers look poised for another year of positivity after producing their best Premier League campaign since 1998-99 last term.

David Moyes' men returned to winning ways in the top-flight last weekend with a last-gasp 2-1 win at Leeds, on an afternoon where my suggested Bet Builder landed.

West Ham must juggle domestic progress with a European escapade, but Moyes and Co appear to relishing their packed schedule, with the Irons recording a 2-0 victory over Rapid Vienna on Thursday night.

Brentford, meanwhile, continue to demonstrate that they have not arrived in the Premier League just to make up the numbers, with the newly-promoted Bees losing just one of their opening six bouts in the big time.

Thomas Frank's team enjoyed a dream start to life in the Premier League with a 2-0 win over Arsenal and last Saturday Liverpool discovered just how good the Londoners can be, with the pair playing out a pulsating 3-3 draw.

Outright Betting

West Ham boasted the second-best home record in the Premier League last season and the Hammers head into this clash as 16/19 (SBK) favourites.

Brentford have avoided defeat in each of their opening three top-flight road trips of the season but the Bees head across the city on Sunday as big outsiders at 41/10 (SBK) while the draw is also deemed unlikely at 14/5 (SBK) with the same firm

Betting Angles

West Ham are worthy favourites here but they are unlikely to have things all their own way so I'm going to swerve the match result market and instead head to Bet 365‘s Bet Builder.

If we combine each team to hit 3+ corners and each team to see at least one card we can get some 10/11 (Bet 365) and that looks like a nice way in.

There has been no shortage of goals in Hammers home games this season, with all three league fixtures featuring three or more goals, and I suspect another entertaining affair could be in the offing in east London on Sunday.

Moyes' men are averaging 5.67 corners per-game at their Stratford base this season, while Brentford have averaged three corners per 90 minutes across their opening three top-flight road trips.

Given that West Ham games tend to be quite open encounters, I'm happy to back each team to hit 3+ corners, but in order to bring about the aforementioned 10/11 (Bet 365) play, I'll also back each team to collect a card.

West Ham are generally a well-disciplined outfit, but both teams have seen at least one card in each of Brentford's last five league outings and I see no reason to oppose a repeat here in what should be a hard-fought all-London affair.

What's more, referee Peter Bankes will officiate this capital clash, with the English whistler flashing exactly six cards in each of the two top-flight fixtures he has taken charge of this term.

As already alluded to, goals have been flowing at the London Stadium this season, with both teams obliging in each of West Ham's three league games on home soil this season.

In fact, BTTS has banked in 5/6 matches involving the Irons this season so I'll happily snap up the 5/6 (SportNation) on both teams getting on the scoresheet on Sunday.

Moyes' men have registered a mere three clean sheets across their last 17 top-flight assignments and that trend could continue when faced with a buoyed Brentford side who hit Liverpool for three last weekend.
