Bitesize Prediction: Wolves vs West Ham – 20th November 2021

Competition: Premier League

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport

Looking to extend their stay in the top-four this weekend, West Ham will make the trip to Molineux when they face off against Wolves on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Wolves might have found themselves enjoying a stunning five-week purple patch earlier in the month, they did come crashing back down to earth when heading into the international break. Eventually suffering a 2-0 loss away at Crystal Palace, the Oranges will be seeking a boost on Saturday afternoon. Watching their five-match Premier League unbeaten run come to an abrupt end at Selhurst Park last time out, new boss Bruno Lage will be excited by his side’s recent success on home soil. Including a deserved victory against Everton when opening November, Wolves have collected back-to-back 2-1 wins at Molineux. Likewise, it should also be noted, the former Benfica boss has seen each of their last four contests in the Midlands finish with over 1.5 goals by the final whistle.

As for the visitors, heading into the international break with a stunning 3-2 win against Liverpool on home soil, the mood in West Ham’s camp is at a red-hot high. Once again shocking many across the Premier League this season, David Moyes’s side are firmly battling it out in the Champions League hunt. Marking their return to action this weekend sat as high as third in the table, the one-time Manchester United boss finds his high-flying squad enjoying a stellar purple patch. Already managing to book their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Europa League, the Hammers are unbeaten in each of their last seven matchups across all formats, recording six wins. Gaining a reputation for their free-scoring displays in the final third, it should also be noted that they collected back-to-back thumping wins against Wolves last season, including a 3-2 win away at Molineux.

Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Wolves vs West Ham 4/11 for Saturday’s Premier League battle @ 888sport
