Reason For Wolverhampton vs West Ham Betting Tips

  • Wolves can move to within three points of the top four with a win this week.
  • Both teams scored in 79% of Wanderers’ Premier League matches this season.
  • West Ham’s clean sheet at Chelsea was only their 3rd in 18 EPL away games.
  • Wolves did the double over West Ham last season.

Wolves’ frustrating draw habit

Wolves take an impressive nine Premier League match unbeaten run into their meeting with West Ham on Wednesday evening, though the division’s draw specialist’s return of fives ties from that stretch means their points return wasn’t as hefty as it might have been.

Wanderers were held to a 1-1 draw in their last outing at home to Sheffield United at the weekend, rescuing a share of the spoils in the second half thanks to a Matt Doherty strike just after the hour mark.

The result pushed Wolves’ sequence without defeat at Molineux to four league matches, and Chelsea remain the only Premier League club to leave the West Midlands with maximum points this term.

Wanderers’ high BTTS statistics

A notable characteristic of Wolves matches of late, and indeed overall this season, has been the high prevalence of both teams scoring their games.

Goals went in at either in 100% of Wanderers’ last six league games and in a whopping 79% of their EPL matches since the summer. It’s also worth noting that their 0-0 draw with Leicester City on the opening weekend of the season remains the only Premier League game this term where Wanderers didn’t score.

Their opponents this weekend West Ham, also tend to mix some promising attacking play with a habit of regularly leaving the door open at the other end.

The Hammers saw both teams score in five of their last eight in the league, and the clean sheet West Ham secured in their surprise 1-0 win at Chelsea on Saturday was just their 3rd shutout on the road in 18 attempts in the Premier League.

With David Martin’s match-winning debut performance in goal and Aaron Creswell’s unlikely winner from left-back at Stamford Bridge – West Ham’s win and clean sheet at Chelsea had an incredibly anomalous feel about it however, and we don’t expect the Irons to repeat the trick at Molineux this week.

Goals expected at either end again

Wolves and West Ham’s shared and continued problems in defence suggests that the chances of both teams scoring again at Molineux are high this week, though any Hammers’ goal is likely to be a consolation strike.

West Ham’s unexpected triumph at Chelsea ended a run of seven Premier League matches without a win, though we expect that to prove a temporary reprieve and not a permanent reversal of fortunes.

With just two defeats all season, Wolves remain one of the toughest teams to beat in the Premier League, and having done the double over West Ham last season, Wanderers will feel they have the measure of this Hammers’ outfit. With that considered, we’re backing Nuno Espirito Santos’ side to win 2-1 in our correct score prediction.
