Wolves v West Ham betting tips: Hammers rule on the road

Wolves v West Ham betting tips and odds

Saturday’s clash at Molineux is a top-eight battle between Wolves and West Ham, who start as 29/20 favourites to boost their Champions League hopes.

The Hammers became the first team to beat Liverpool in any competition this season before the international break when they ran out 3-2 winners at the London Stadium.

The hosts’ impressive five-match unbeaten run, during which they took 13 points, ended at Crystal Palace last time out, so let’s examine some of the options in our Wolves v West Ham betting tips.

Match Odds

West Ham, 11/4 to finish in the top four, could find themselves level on points at the top of the Premier League if Leicester do them a favour by defeating leaders Chelsea on Saturday lunchtime.

The Hammers moved up to third with their win against the Reds which was their fourth successive victory, three of which were by one-goal margins of victory, available at 3/1.

David Moyes’ side are one of only three teams yet to lose away from home this season, winning four of their five games – three of which produced goals at both ends, so we go 15/4 on the visitors winning and conceding on Saturday.

Wolves have had an easy run of fixtures since September, but December involves matches against Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea, so they will be keen to rack up as many points as possible before they start to face the elite teams of the Premier League.

The hosts are 19/10 to win this weekend or 9/4 to draw, but they lost both meetings 3-2 and 4-0 last season when Nuno Espirito Santo was in charge, so an away win and over 2.5 match goals can be backed at 21/5 bearing in mind three of Wolves’ last five matches have involved three or more goals.

The east Londoners also have the best second-half record of all 20 Premier League teams (W7 D2 L2), so they look an interesting prospect at 7/4 to score the most goals after the break in Saturday’s Wolves v West Ham betting tips.

Talking Tactics

Moyes has been a creature of habit this season, consistently deploying a 4-2-3-1 formation and rarely changing his starting XI.

However, Moyes must make at least one change after Angelo Ogbonna sustained a cruciate ligament injury against Liverpool which has ruled him out for the rest of the season, so Craig Dawson is set to deputise.

Declan Rice also pulled out of the England squad with illness,but should be available to face Wolves, who are likely to line up in a 3-4-2-1.

Goalscorer Odds

Michail Antonio scored a spectacular equaliser to earn Jamaica a point in a 1-1 draw with USA in Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier, three days after he struck in a 1-1 draw against El Salvador.

Antonio has scored six goals in the Premier League this season and is 9/2 favourite to get the ball rolling or 15/8 in the anytime market.

Jarrod Bowen scored three goals in the two games against Wolves last season and is 7/1 and 14/5 in the two options, while Said Benrahma and Pablo Fornals are 9/1 and 12/1 to break the deadlock or 7/2 and 9/2 to find the net.

Raul Jimenez is the 5/1 favourite from the Wolves contingent to draw first blood or 11/5 to score any time, the same price as Hwang Hee-chan, who is 11/2 to net the game’s opener.
