West Ham host Wolves at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon (KO, 14:00) in the first of two televised Premier League matches on Sky Sports.

The Irons will be desperate to right the wrongs of last weekend's 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Fulham, while the visitors may feel like they also owe something to their fans after a disappointing 1-1 home draw with a struggling Fulham side.

Ahead of the match, we have picked out a three-leg #PickYourPunt which pays out at 5/1.

West Ham vs Wolves Bet Builder Tips:

  • Over 2.5 goals
  • Matheus Cunha to score anytime
  • Lucas Paqueta 2+ fouls

#PickYourPunt @ 5/1

Over 2.5 goals

David Moyes may have a reputation as a pragmatic coach, but it's been raining goals in West Ham matches this season. Only games involving Brighton (3.8) have seen more goals per game than the Irons (3.5), with the over 2.5 bet landing in 12 of their 16 Premier League fixtures so far.

Wolves have been involved in their fair share of entertaining ties, too, with at least three goals scored in 10 of their 16 league games. It's been particularly entertaining for those tuning into their away matches, where both teams have found the net in their last six. The over 2.5 goals bet has landed in five of them.

There should be more goals here, with both teams desperate to get back on track in the Premier League after disappointing results last time out.

Matheus Cunha to score anytime

Hwang Hee-chan has taken most of the goalscoring plaudits this season, but after scoring three goals in his last four games, Matheus Cunha is starting to show why Wolves paid the big bucks for him.

The Brazilian now has five for the season, with four of them coming away from home. It's quite the opposite for his strike partner, Hwang, who has scored six of his eight league goals at Molineux.

West Ham's defence looks fragile after shipping five at Fulham last weekend, and they've failed to keep a clean sheet in their last nine Premier League games.

Cunha looks best-placed to capitalise on the away side.

Lucas Paqueta 2+ fouls

The Brazil international is best known for his elegance on the ball but he's certainly not afraid to do the hard yards.

Paqueta has conceded 28 fouls in 15 league matches this term - averaging at more than two per game. Only Conor Gallagher (34), Dejan Kulusevski (31), Abdoulaye Doucoure and Joao Gomes (both 29) have made more at the time of writing.

The 26-year-old fouled an opponent twice in the corresponding fixture last season, and he looks decent value to do so again on Sunday.
