UEFA Europa League picks for Eintracht Frankfurt vs. West Ham United
Before you tune in to Thursday’s match, you need to see the West Ham vs. Eintracht Frankfurt picks from SportsLine’s European soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated well over $37,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season, and he has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
For Eintracht Frankfurt vs. West Ham, Green is backing both teams to score for a -135 payout. No team has scored more goals in the Europa League this season than Frankfurt with 19, while West Ham United is right behind it with 18. Both teams have scored in each of Frankfurt’s last nine UEL matches and 10 of its 11 total Europa League contests. The German club has the individual talent to find the back of the net as midfielder Daichi Kamada has five goals in the Europa League which is one off the tournament high.
West Ham has a more varied offensive arsenal as it has three players with three goals in UEL play. It also doesn’t shy away from playing in front of a hostile crowd as the team is averaging more goals in away games than home games in this tournament.
Green points out that West Ham’s manager rested key players in its most recent EPL match in anticipation of Thursday’s contest, which Green calls the “biggest game in the club’s recent history.” The Hammers will be fired up and that exuberance could lead to goals on both ends of the pitch.
“West Ham has enough quality to get on the score sheet in this game,” Green told SportsLine. “It has already knocked Sevilla and Lyon out of this competition, so it should not fear a trip to Deutsche Bank Park. Yet it is also liable to concede, so it will need to be ambitious and aggressive, which should lead to an open game with plenty of goals.”
