West Ham vs Wolves Tips 

Betting Tip: Both teams to score - No

As harsh as it may sound, if you’re looking for the opposite of entertainment then these two are the teams that you’re looking for. Neither set of fans will be happy with how their clubs are performing given how toothless they both look in an attacking sense.

They struggle with creativity and I see this one being a rather dull affair with the game itself being particularly scrappy. 

The Hammers have picked up just a solitary point on home soil which gives them the title of being the worst performing home team in the Premier League so far.  However, they will have belief they can improve on that given, Wolves have emerged victorious in just one of their last 14 matches.

Both sides are struggling to claim wins and the lack of penetration going forward leads me to think it will be a low-scoring encounter. Under 2.5 is a best price of 3/4, however, I prefer at least one of these sides failing to score at 19/20 and that will be my first selection here. 

Both teams to score no - 1pt @ 19/20

Betting Tip: Half time result - Draw

As mentioned above, this should be a low-scoring clash and it may take one moment of magic to separate these two sides.

All three of Wolves away league matches have seen the score level at the break and I think we could see that happen once again here. After the international break, it can often take some time to get back into the swing of things and I do not see the opening 45 minutes of action producing many chances for either outfit to get on the scoresheet.

None of West Ham United’s three home league matches have produced three or more goals in total and it looks highly unlikely that this match will buck that trend. I’m expecting a tight encounter and if a winner is to come, it should be in the second-half of proceedings.

I really like the 11/10 on this being a draw at half-time and that will be my second pick.

Halftime draw - 1pt @ 11/10
