West Ham vs Wolves in the Premier League on Feb 27. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

West Ham vs Wolves in the Premier League on Feb 27. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Back-to-back draws for West Ham in the league would suggest that the wheels are just starting to fall off for David Moyes’ men. Then again, any time that criticism has been levelled in the past, they always bounce back with a win.

Which is exactly what they will be hoping to achieve against Wolves on Sunday and although the Carabao Cup final will take top billing that afternoon, this is also a hugely important fixture on the horizon.

West Ham To Score First

With West Ham only winning two of their last six league outings, backing them for outright success on Sunday may be a step too far and although the betting sites are offering good odds on such an outcome, it is not something that I am looking to touch,

Which means it is time to look elsewhere in my pursuit for profit and with that in mind, I plan to use West Ham’s home advantage to my advantage, and this is by virtue of the first team to score market.

It is not a usual direction for me in terms of tips or bets, but this time around I think West Ham will at least open the scoring at the London Stadium and if you think the same, you can back this outcome at odds of 3/4 with bet365 .

West Ham Form, squad news, opinion

After sitting pretty in fourth, the race for the final Champions League place has seemingly overtaken West Ham in recent weeks and as a consequence, the Hammers now find themselves playing catch up.

Going into this weekend’s curtailed round of Premier League fixtures, David Moyes’ men find themselves four points behind Manchester United in fifth and that gap could widen by the time Sunday comes around.

Because with United playing at home to Watford on Saturday, four points could easily become seven and if that proves to be the case, it will only make the overall task tougher for West Ham.

A task that is already seeming something of an uphill one and with just two league wins from their last six attempts, the spark that they displayed at the start of the season is now failing to ignite.

Which means the battle for Europa League places next season will only intensify for West Ham and this is why it is so important to keep Wolves at bay this Sunday, as Bruno Lage’s men also have designs on reaching the same competition next season.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Wolves, it is only Angelo Ogbonna who is out as a long-term absentee, and this means David Moyes will be able to call upon the same squad that drew at home to Newcastle last weekend.

Wolves Form, squad news, opinion

It is two London trips in the space of three days for Wolves and after dealing with Arsenal on Thursday, their focus now switches to West Ham and the battle for European qualification at the end of the season.

A status that looked rather unlikely for Bruno Lage’s men at the start of the season, as they floundered in the middle of the table and many questioned if the Portuguese was the right man for the job.

However, Lage’s transition to life in the Premier League has been a slow and somewhat steady one but an impressive one all the same and with he and his players going up through the gears, the only way is up for the Molineux outfit.

Which begs the question as to just how high up the table they can finish and although they will lose the odd league game from time to time, they are no more than capable of getting a result when it matters.

Something that suggests that they will smell blood on Sunday and if Wolves can pick up maximum points at the London Stadium, a top-six bid may even start to become a top-four bid at the same time.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to West Ham, there is no change for Wolves after their 2-1 win over Leicester last Sunday and this means that the defensive pair of Willy Boly and Yerson Mosquera will once again miss out.

History

As far as the history of these two teams are concerned, it has only really intensified in the past couple of seasons and with both West Ham and Wolves looking to break through the top-four glass ceiling, they now have similar aspirations.

In terms of their overall head-to-head record, West Ham have won on 31 occasions, Wolves 23 and there have been 14 draws

About the Venue

With the move to the London Stadium being one that did not go down all that well, there is a sense that West Ham’s change from Upton Park is now starting to feel more homely and this is courtesy of improved results during the past couple of seasons.

With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in England, it means there is no longer the need to show a Vaccine Passport before attending the ground. Which means, match tickets are the only item that is required to be produced at the time of writing.

Conclusion

When looking at the Premier League odds, one of the more interesting markets is the ‘Without Big 6’ offering and with Sunday’s opponents at the top of the pile, this fixture will go a long way to proving who is the best of the figurative rest.

Will it be West Ham who are currently misfiring in the Premier League and dropping points where they previously would not have, or will it be Wolves who will once again aim to break through the glass ceiling and truly announce their arrival as one of English football’s elite.
