West Ham v Luton: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Two out-of-form teams meet at the London Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday as West Ham host Luton Town.

The Hammers announced this week that David Moyes will leave the club at the end of the season, with former Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui replacing him in the dugout.

Luton will hope to capitalise on that instability when they make the short trip to the capital and they will need to as they are still in the bottom three with just two games remaining.

West Ham v Luton betting tips and predictions

Double chance - Draw or Luton - 19/20

Time is running out for Luton to preserve their top-flight status and they are currently three points behind 17th-placed Nottingham Forest in the table.

Rob Edwards' side are winless in four in the league, but they did pick up a point in a 1-1 draw against Everton last weekend at Kenilworth Road.

Luton are winless in nine on the road, with their last win on their travels coming on Boxing Day against Sheffield United. The Hatters have lost five on the spin away from home, but they play a Hammers team who appear to have downed tools.

Moyes' team are enduring a difficult run and have not won any of their previous four in the league. During that time they conceded five goals against Crystal Palace and Chelsea, and with Moyes leaving, it seems there's little for the players to play for.

West Ham cannot finish in the top six and Town's hunger should certainly aid their cause as they look to grab at least a share of the points.

Half-time result - Luton - 3/1

Luton have to make a fast start on Saturday, and the return of striker Elijah Adebayo will no doubt boost their chances of picking up all three points.

Even though Edwards' side are down at the wrong end of the table, they have at least done all they can to retain their top-flight status.

Luton's 801 crosses are the most in the Premier League this season and they should once again throw the kitchen sink at the Hammers' backline.

In addition, only Sheffield United and Burnley have conceded more first-half goals than West Ham, so if Luton can find their rhythm early, they should be in front come half-time.

Carlton Morris to score anytime - 8/5

Elijah Adebayo's return will have been such a relief for Edwards and he is expected to start the 26-year-old alongside Carlton Morris.

The duo have scored 10 goals each this season and, with Luton only scoring 49 goals in 36 games, it suggests their strike duo could play their part once again this weekend.

Morris has been busy of late, firing 12 shots at goal in his last five and if he is given space, he has what it takes to punish the Hammers defence.

Morris' return in his first campaign in the Premier League has been impressive in a struggling team and he has scored two goals in his last five.

Adebayo's return to the fold will also give Morris more chance of scoring, as defenders cannot afford to focus their attention on one of Luton's forwards.

With West Ham's players thinking about next season and their futures, the Hatters' forwards may not get a better chance to stamp their authority on a game and help their team pick up three points.
