Sunday evening’s Premier League match takes place in East London as West Ham and Wolves look to bounce back from defeats last week.
West Ham have done well in the Carabao Cup and have made it to the fourth round next week, but they’re still searching for their first points of the new Premier League season. They’ve lost to Newcastle and Arsenal so far, and put in a much better performance in their narrow 2-1 defeat to the latter last weekend.
The visitors, meanwhile, have had a mixed start. They cruised to a 2-0 win over Sheffield United in their opener, scoring both goals early and comfortably seeing it out, but lost 3-1 to Manchester City on Monday evening and were blown away by Pep Guardiola’s men in the first half before making a decent fight of it after the break.
Wolves tend to keep things tight away from Molineux. Each of their last six Premier League away games have featured two goals or fewer. Paddy Power price under 2.5 goals at 13/20 here, while they have a Power Price promotion with boosted odds of 10/3 for dangermen Jarrod Bowen & Adama Traore to have 1 or more shots on target each
Wolves have enjoyed themselves against the Hammers in recent seasons, doing the double over them in each of the last two seasons since their promotion in 2018. On each of those occasions they’ve kept a clean sheet, and the aggregate score over the four matches stands at 8-0.
We recommend backing Wolves to win here. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men had a strong spell against Manchester City on Monday evening and might have taken something from the game if they were more clinical in front of goal. A narrow 1-0 away victory is priced at 6/1 with Betfair Sportsbook.
