West Ham vs Leeds – FA Cup Betting Tips

West Ham welcomes Leeds United to their home ground in an all EPL club FA Cup clash.

This is the first FA Cup round in which EPL teams will be participating this season, and Leeds or West Ham would not love to leave the competition early.

West Ham has been struggling of late with their matches but looked resurgent in their last 2 games.

Leeds United has been battling with injuries in much of their season campaign, and that had seen them lose heavily and look totally out of shape. 

Leeds will be confident going into this clash after winning Burnley 3-1. But will West Ham want to go out of the FA Cup so early? We don’t think so; here is the team news and tips for this match.

West Ham Form and Team News

As mentioned previously, West Ham was in bad shape in December as they played 9 games, won 2, drawn 2, and lost 4. In 2022, they started their football campaign with a 3-2 win over Crystal Palace, after winning Watford 1-4 on 28th December.

However, West Ham has been unconvincing in some of their matches, having shown a glimpse of form and then losing control of this again. 

For the team news, David Moyes will be without some first-team players ahead of this fixture, and the players likely to miss this clash are Zouma, Angelo, Pablo Formals, and Cresswell.

Leeds Form and Team News

Leeds has been struggling this season, especially in December when the bulk of their matches was called off due to injuries or covid-19. 

Still, they played 5 games in December way less than Premier League clubs but still failed to win 1 (1 draw and 4 losses). This January, they started well, winning Burnley 3-1 in an impressive performance.

For this FA Cup tie, they have a limited squad, and some players are still out injured, and they’re Liam, Charlie, Pascal, Philips, Jamie, Bamford, and Rodrigo.

Our Tipsters Angle

This is an FA Cup match, and coaches might have preferred priorities like the EPL and field lesser quality players. Also, this might not happen as leaving the cup competition too soon doesn’t look good for most clubs.

We think Leeds United Coach Bielsa will have to manage the already diminished squad he has at his disposal. We don’t know which team will come out victorious as they’re closely matched in strength.

Below are our tips for this game:

Tip 1:  West Ham to Win

Leeds United injury crisis have been bare for all to see, and with relegation fast looming for them, we don’t think Bielsa would field a strong 11 for this match.

He might field 1-3 first-team players, but we expect a bulk of the players to be academy products.

Also, checking their H2H, the last 5 clashes between these teams have seen West Ham win 3 and draw 2. Leeds United hasn’t won against West Ham since 2005, and with their current squad condition, we think their losing record against West Ham will continue. 

West Ham to win is available at Casumo Bookie at 1.77 odds.

Tip 2:  Over 2.5 Goals

Leeds United and West Ham respective matches this season have been filled with goals. Leeds has defensive issues and has conceded heavily as a result, and West Ham has been scoring for fun and conceding.

Even if Leeds field a strong XI against West Ham, this match would likely be a case in which team would outscore the other.

In the last 6 clashes between the two sides, there have been over 2.5 goals in 4 of them, and we think a similar outcome will happen in this match.

Over 2.5 goals are placed at 1.71 odds at the Casumo Sportsbook.


This match is a knockout, but the FA cup is still in its early stages as most coaches wouldn’t prioritize it. 

Leeds is having heavy injury and match fitness problems, which might affect the selections Bielsa puts forward for this game.

West Ham would look comfortable with this one as they’re brimming in confidence after wining 2 matches in a row.

Even though this is not a top EPL clubs clash, we think this match would be fun to watch.
