West Ham United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers – Predictions & Football Betting Tips
West Ham are at the London Stadium keen to shake off the poor form that has plagued the club since the start of the season. They are up against an exciting Wolves team this weekend. The hammers are yet to pick up any point in this 2018-19 season. Wolves may have only managed two points, but they have been worth several more. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
The Hammers fell to a third consecutive league defeat as Arsenal were able to register a 3-1 win at the Emirates Stadium during the weekend. West Ham went on to pick up a first competitive enough the season by beating AFC Wimbledon in the League Cup.
Wolves also picked up their first win of the season in a League Cup match against Sheffield Wednesday, but the club have been quite impressive – without actually getting the desired results. During the weekend, Wolves managed a highly unlikely 1-1 draw with Manchester City at the Molineux stadium.
The recent game between West Ham and Wolves took place at Upton Park with the hammers getting a 1-0 win. The last league meeting between the two clubs was in 2011. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

West Ham are at odds of 2.50 while Wolves are given a price of 2.80. The hosts have been rather disappointing under Manuel Pellegrini, while Wolves are certainly justifying their summer expenditure with a set of impressive performances. Still, it is difficult to back Wolves in an away match. Even though the club has been going through a strong period, West Ham are expected to come in with a resistance and a response to the three consecutive league defeat. Our preview would bet on a draw.

West Ham win odds: 2.50
Wolves win odds: 2.80
Correct Score odds
The hammers could miss out on players like Marko Arnautovic – due to injury – and this will seriously jeopardise the process of getting a positive result in the game. Yet, the likes of Javier Hernandez should be able to keep West Ham in the competition. The hammers have been let down by a defence that has conceded nine goals – the highest of any team. Hence, Pellegrini will expect serious improvements on this front. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Wolves have been exciting to watch in the Premier League but they have struggled to take their chances to a certain extent. This coupled with West Ham’s serious desire to improve defensively will bring about under 2.5 goals in the match.

First Goalscorer odds
Raul Jimenez continues to be a key player for the Wolves even if he has scored just once in the Premier League this season. The forward is once again expected to start the game after missing out on the League Cup action against Sheffield Wednesday. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Jimenez.
