West Ham spent the international break flying high in third in the Premier League and victory at Wolves would be further proof they are genuine top-four challengers.
Wolves are also in fine form, with both teams picking up 16 points from their last eight matches, so this is a tough test for the Hammers.
The 3-2 win against Liverpool last time out suggests they are up to the task and an away win at 135/100 is our opening Wolves vs West Ham prediction.
Wolves are looking to get back to winning ways after a 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace prior to the international break.
Four wins and a draw from their previous five matches had lifted Wolves into the top half of the table but casino sbobet they had no answer to second-half goals from Wilfried Zaha and Conor Gallagher.
Wolves start the weekend in eighth but have played just one of the teams above them in the table and that was a 1-0 defeat at home to Manchester United.
All five of their wins this season have been against teams currently in the bottom half so there are tougher games on the horizon, starting this weekend.
It is up front where Wolves are most likely to struggle. Only three teams have scored fewer than the 11 goals Wolves have managed and they have failed to find the net in all five of their defeats.
Backing an away win to nil may be worth the extra risk at Wolves vs West Ham odds.
Last Wolves line-up: Jose Sa, Ait Nouri, Coady, Semedo, Kilman, Neves, Saiss, Moutinho, Jimenez, Trincao, Hwang.
Adama Traore will be pushing for a return to the starting line-up and full-back Fernando Marcal is in contention to feature for the first time since October 16 after recovering from a calf injury, although boss Bruno Lage has said that Rayan Ait-Nouri is set to keep his place in the side.
A decision will be made on Raul Jimenez’s availability after the striker returned from international duty with Mexico on Thursday.
West Ham Odds
West Ham will head to Molineux full of confidence after a run of four straight wins against Everton, West Ham, Aston Villa and Liverpool.
Heading out on the road will not faze them either given they are one of only three Premier League teams unbeaten on their travels.
It is after the break when David Moyes’ men often take control and they have the best second-half record in the division, winning the second 45 minutes in seven of their 11 matches and scoring 16 of their 23 goals in that period.
To complete our Wolves vs West Ham betting tips, we like 17/4 for West Ham to win the second half and over 1.5 combined goals scored.
Last West Ham line-up: Fabianski, Cresswell, Zouma, Ogbonna, Johnson, Fornals, Soucek, Rice, Antonio, Bowen, Benrahma.
West Ham will be without Angelo Ogbonna, with the defender looking set to miss the rest of the season.
It appears midfielder Declan Rice, who withdrew from the England squad last week because of illness, is set to be available.
