Correct Score odds
West Ham have been able to come up with more than 1.5 goals in an impressive three out of the recent five games in the Premier League. Even though the club will be without Marko Arnautovic due to a hamstring problem, West Ham have shown the availability of sufficient offensive players. Palace have dribblers instead of natural centre-forwards upfront and this has limited their offensive impact. Still, our correct score prediction expects a 2-1 win for West Ham.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Palace have not been among the goals recently even if the performances of the team has improved. The same does not apply to West Ham, who have been in better goalscoring form of late. Even without some key players, the Hammers will have more than enough strength to get a high scoring game. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Felipe Anderson has been in fine form and he has moved level on goals (5) with Marko Arnautovic. The Brazilian has come up with goals in three out of his last five games for West Ham. His vision, passing, and accurate shots make him a complete player. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Felipe Anderson.
