Sam Allardyce and West Brom got a much needed three points in a bizarrely high scoring game as they went to Molineux on Saturday and bagged a 3-2 win. You could see how much it meant to the players after that game, it may spark the Baggies into life as the great escape is on.

Before that game their process both attacking and defending was really poor, so it’s important to not get carried away with that result. They’ll generally be happy to take a point in away games this season and they will be content with a draw at a West Ham side that have been relatively difficult to beat this season. It’s two wins and 2 draws in the last 4 for the Hammers and defensively they’ve been sound with plenty of clean sheets to boot.

I think the goal markets have seen an overreaction after that Wolves game at the weekend. Big Sam is more defensive minded than most and West Ham have seen a few dull games of late. Even-money on under 2.5 looks a really surprising price.

Where is the value?
