West Ham vs Leverkusen Over/Under Pick: Over 2½, 3 (-122)

Leverkusen clinched their first-ever Bundesliga title in style on Sunday. Florian Wirtz, alongside other key players like Jeremie Frimpong, Alejandro Grimaldo, and Exequiel Palacios, will be well-rested and prepared for the trip to London.

As opposed to last week when they camped in their own half and attempted to soak up pressure, only to concede two late goals, West Ham will be forced to open up and push for goals early on. This could make them even more vulnerable to Leverkusen’s multi-pronged attack. We’re taking the Over in our soccer picks and parlays.



West Ham vs Leverkusen Player Prop Pick: Florian Wirtz to Score (+300)

Two years after suffering an ACL tear, Florian Wirtz has emerged as one of the finest players in Europe at the tender age of 20, scoring 17 goals and 18 assists and grabbing a hat-trick against Werder Bremen at the weekend. Wirtz has been part and parcel of Leverkusen’s unbeaten campaign, scoring on seven occasions since the start of March – one of which came in a 2-0 friendly win vs France.

The German attacking midfielder has led Die Werkself to their first trophy in 31 years, and he’s more than capable of continuing his scoring streak in London on Thursday. We’re backing him to find the back of the net for the fourth time in five matches and lead Leverkusen past the Hammers.

Make sure you check the official starting lineup before placing your Europa League player props.



West Ham vs Leverkusen Game Prop Pick: Leverkusen Wins and Both Teams to Score (+260)

Whilst Leverkusen should be able to come away with a ninth win in a row, getting a clean sheet may be easier said than done. West Ham’s season all but comes down to this match, and they’ll be looking to push for goals from the onset and end their run of two goalless matches.

Apart from their recent loss to Fulham, David Moyes’ side has scored in seven of their last eight home matches, and they will be looking to go all out and give their home fans something to be proud of.

I’m expecting a far more audacious set-up from West Ham going forward, and I’m backing Leverkusen to continue their winning streak in my soccer betting predictions.
