Wolves will count themselves to be lucky after having avoided a major FA Cup upset at the hands of Shrewsbury Town and this result will act as a wake-up call for the team. West Ham will be keen to avoid four consecutive away defeats and the transfer situation surrounding Marko Arnautovic has been sorted out for the time being. This will help the squad get the focus back on the game. Our preview would back a stalemate.

Correct Score odds
West Ham have been defensively struggling especially in away matches this season. The team has only managed two clean sheets in away matches this season. Wolves may have been impressive this season but they have let in far too many goals over the last few weeks. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Wolves 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There was just one goal separating the two teams in the reverse fixture but West Ham’s form is much improved compared to the start of the campaign. The likes of Lucas Perez and Felipe Anderson offer the visitors plenty of strength going forward. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Raul Jimenez has been in wonderful form over the last few weeks. The forward has been one of the best players for Wolves this season.
