Tip Reasoning

  • West Ham have the joint-best away record in the division with 13 points from a possible 15.
  • Wolves are yet to take any points from their games against teams currently above them in the table.
  • Wolves have lost three of their five Premier League home games.
  • West Ham have just one clean sheet in their last four away games.

Hammers seeking fifth straight league win

West Ham secured a fourth straight league win with a 3-2 victory over Liverpool in their last outing and will be itching to get back to action after the international break this weekend.

Wolves saw their own purple patch ended at Crystal Palace in their last fixture, and they could be in line for another defeat against this in-form Hammers side.

West Ham sit third in the standings, three points behind leaders Chelsea, with 23 points from 11 games and their away form has been particularly impressive. The Hammers are yet to be beaten on their travels and have four wins from five games so far.

Hammers can leave with all three points

Wolves have won their last two home games but those successes came against mid-table Everton and relegation-threatened Newcastle. The Molineux club have five wins and one draw from 11 games so far, but as yet they haven’t managed to take any points from teams currently ranked above them in the table.

West Ham have the joint best away record in the division and over the last five games only Chelsea have picked up more points overall. The Hammers did the league double over Wolves last season, winning the corresponding fixture 3-2, and with the visitors in fine form an away win makes sense here as our main bet.

Wolves can get on the scoresheet

I was toying with the idea of a West Ham win and BTTS as the main bet but as all of Wolves’ losses this season have also seen them fail to score I opted for a more cautious approach. However, it is worth being a bit braver in terms of a correct score selection and a 3-1 win for West Ham holds some appeal.

Wolves’ defeat against Palace ended a run of six consecutive games in which they have scored and they are averaging exactly one goal per-game in the league. The Hammers managed to hit three against Liverpool and have scored nine goals in total across their last three games. With the visitors in good scoring form they should be able to outgun Wolves but they have conceded in three of their last four away games so may not come away with a clean sheet.

Bowen the goalscorer value pick

A few contenders for an anytime goal stand out but the value looks to be with West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen. The 24-year-old didn’t add to his goals tally against Liverpool but played a key role in the win with two assists and is generally in good form. Bowen has three goals in his last six starts and also scored in West Ham’s last away game in the league, a 4-1 win at Aston Villa.

Wolves predicted lineup: Sa, Kilman, Coady, Saiss, Semedo, Neves, Moutinho, Ait-Nouri, Prodence, Jimenez, Hee-chan

West Ham predicted lineup: Fabianski, Cresswell, Dawson, Zouma, Johnson, Rice, Soucek, Fornals, Benrahma, Bowen, Antonio

  • Eight of West Ham’s last ten Premier League away games have seen both teams score
  • Four of West Ham’s last six Premier League away games have ended with over 2.5 goals
