West Ham vs Leeds UnitedEnglish Premier League, KO: 14:00 Jan 16, 2022, London Stadium
WEST HAM will be looking to make it four Premier League wins on the spin when they welcome Leeds to the London Stadium Sunday.
Following a six-match winless run across all competitions from mid to late December, the wheels appeared to have fallen off from the Hammers' strong start to the campaign.
However, David Moyes' men have rediscovered some form in recent matches, triumphing in each of their last four league and cup outings.
West Ham made light work of lowly Norwich last time out, cruising to a 2-0 win and moving back into the top four of the Premier League in the process.
Leeds, meanwhile, will head into the game seeking to exact revenge on the hosts after they were beaten 2-0 when the sides faced off in the FA Cup last Sunday.
That said, Marcelo Bielsa's men eased their relegation fears with a well-earned 3-1 win over Burnley in their last top flight fixture, and they are now going in search of back-to-back league wins for the first time all season.
West Ham have won each of the last four meetings and the bookies' odds suggest that sequence will continue here, with a home win trading at 4/6 (SBK).
West Ham look a bit too short to side with here but we can get some 41/50 (Bet 365) on them to overcome a -0.75 start on the Asian Handicap and that looks like a worthy boost in price.
Here we would land a half win if the Hammers win by a solitary strike, whereas a West Ham success by two or more goals would deliver a full pay out.
As already alluded to, David Moyes' team have got back on track in recent weeks, winning each of their last four matches, achieving all but one of those victories by at least a two-goal winning margin.
What's more, West Ham have taken some fairly notable scalps at their capital headquarters this season, with top flight titans Chelsea and Liverpool both coming away second best from recent league encounters.
In stark contrast, Leeds' only away win this season was a workmanlike effort at Premier League whipping boys Norwich, with the only other of their 11 road trips in all competitions where they have avoided defeat coming against Burnley, Newcastle, Fulham and Brighton.
With all that in mind, I'm more than happy to back in-form West Ham to overcome a -0.75 start on the asian handicap at 41/50 with Bet 365.
Elsewhere, the 5/2 (BetVictor) about West Ham's Jarrod Bowen to get on the scoresheet looks too big to ignore given his scintillating form for the Irons' so far this season.
