UEFA Europa League picks for Leverkusen vs. West Ham

Before you tune in to Thursday’s match, you need to see the Europa League picks from betting expert Jon Eimer. Eimer is a high-volume bettor who has vast knowledge of leagues and players across the globe. Since joining SportsLine, he has covered the English Premier League, Serie A, the FA Cup and much more. Since the end of last year’s World Cup, Eimer has been red-hot on English Premier League picks, going 57-27-4 for a profit of $3,450 for $100 bettors. Overall, he is 178-169-8 (+18.91) on soccer picks over that span. Anyone following him is WAY up.  

For West Ham vs. Leverkusen, Eimer is picking the German side on the money line for a -110 payout. Even if Leverkusen are distracted by winning the Bundesliga or if manager Xabi Alonso decides to sit some of his starters, they will still be a more talented team than West Ham. The German side outshot the Hammers 33-1 in the first leg and put 13 shots on target, plus they are coming off of an insane 5-0 win against Werder over the weekend.

Meanwhile, West Ham could be without star forward Jarrod Bowen for the second leg at London Stadium, which further impacts their ability for a comeback.

“The lines are soft right now for Leverkusen, but I believe Alonso is going to continue his pursuit of a perfect season and a treble, so I’m backing the Bundesliga club on the road in this second leg,” Eimer told SportsLine. Stream the match here.
