West Ham vs Wolves prediction, betting tips & odds

Kick-off: 1730, 01/10/2022

Stadium: London Stadium

TV: Sky Sports

West Ham and Wolves have both been struggling for Premier League goals this term, each scoring just three times from seven top-flight fixtures.

Last season’s two head-to-head meetings finished 1-0 in favour of the team with home advantage and another tight tussle is on the cards here.

Those stats suggest 2/1 for under 1.5 goals to be netted at London Stadium is good value for our first West Ham vs Wolves prediction.

West Ham United Odds

West Ham began their campaign by suffering three straight defeats and failed to hit the target in any of those games.

The Hammers then rallied to win 1-0 at Aston Villa and draw 1-1 with Tottenham here, before playing okay in a 2-1 loss at Chelsea.

However, a 1-0 reversal at Everton left United third from bottom in the table and needing to find a creative spark from somewhere.

“I need them to play at their best,” declared head coach David Moyes. “I have seen the performances a lot of those players can put in.

“I am the one who takes the responsibility and I have got to get them back at that level quickly.”

West Ham have admittedly been doing well up front in the Europa Conference League but they are yet to score a first-half goal at this level.

Examining the 33/20 for this match to be 0-0 at the interval.

Last West Ham line-up: Fabianski, Cresswell, Zouma, Coufal, Kehrer, Fornals, Paqueta, Soucek, Rice, Antonio, Bowen.

West Ham have an almost fully-fit squad after Ben Johnson resumed training following a month out with a hamstring injury.

Fellow defender Nayef Aguerd, who is yet to make his debut after suffering a long-term ankle injury in pre-season, has begun light training.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Odds

Wolves have suffered from similar problems, with their only win being a 1-0 defeat of Southampton at Molineux.

Wanderers drew with Fulham, Newcastle and Bournemouth, but lost for the third team when going down 3-0 to Manchester City on home turf before the international break.

Injuries to Raul Jimenez and Sasa Kalajdzic haven’t helped, while Diego Costa needs to get match fit after signing on a free transfer.

After losing to the Blues, Bruno Lage said: “When you don’t score goals it is a worry. That is why we have these three strikers but unfortunately no-one is available.

“Man City can play very well without a striker for four or five years and win competitions, for us it is more important to have that man.”

Daniel Podence and Reuben Neves have contributed from midfield, but Adama Traore has yet to hit form since returning from Barcelona.

Backing ‘no’ in the both teams to score market would have paid out seven times in the last eight games between these teams and is 4/5 here.

There hasn’t been a 0-0 in those fixtures, though, so let’s add 16/5 for either side to win 1-0 to our West Ham vs Wolves betting tips.

Last Wolves line-up: Jose Sa, Ait Nouri, Collins, Jonny, Kilman, Neves, Podence, Nunes, Moutinho, Neto, Guedes.

Costa could make his debut for Wolves, who are still without strikers Kalajdzic (knee) and Jimenez. Forward Hwang Hee-chan is sidelined after picking up an injury on international duty but Traore is available.

Defender Nathan Collins is suspended for three matches following his sending off against Manchester City a fortnight ago, with Jonny, Yerson Mosquera and Toti Gomes competing to replace him.
