UEFA Europa League picks for West Ham vs. Eintracht Frankfurt
Before you tune in to Thursday’s match, you need to see the Eintracht Frankfurt vs. West Ham picks from soccer insider Jon Eimer. He is a high-volume bettor who has vast knowledge of leagues and players across the globe. Since joining SportsLine, Eimer has covered the English Premier League, Serie A, the FA Cup and much more. The Indiana-based handicapper compiled a winning record of 260-133-1 with over 90 units of profit for his community on various platforms over a recent two-month stretch.
For West Ham vs. Eintracht Frankfurt, Eimer is backing both teams to score at -120 odds. Frankfurt hasn’t made much of an impact in Bundesliga and currently sits in ninth place in the table, but has scored in every one of its Europa League matches and will look to continue that.
West Ham has similarly not done well in league play, but has impressed on the European stage. Their biggest challenge on Thursday will be making up for an injury-riddled back line. Center-backs Issa Diop, Angelo Ogbonna and Kurt Zouma will all miss Thursday’s match and likely make the Hammers play a bit more desperate.
“This should be a more aggressive first leg than most with both teams trying their best to find the goal sheet and avoid going down in the second leg,” Eimer told SportsLine. “The first leg in this tie is a very difficult winner to call, so we’ll be focused on props more than a ML winner until we get to the second leg.”
