West Ham United welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to the Premier League on Sunday afternoon (14:00), with both sides looking to get back to winning ways.

The Hammers head into the weekend off an impressive midweek victory at home in the Europa League, which saw them progress to the knockout stage as group winners. They will look to carry that momentum into their meeting with Wolves, who were left disappointed with their stalemate with Nottingham Forest last weekend.

Here are some of the best markets available to punters ahead of this fixture.

West Ham vs Wolves Betting Tips

  • Jarrod Bowen to score anytime - 15/8
  • Hwang Hee-chan to score anytime - 15/8

Match Odds

West Ham are 6/5 to come away with the three points in this one. A draw is at an enticing price of 12/5, while Wolves are 9/4 to pick up an impressive away victory.

Both teams to score is valued at 4/6. Over 2.5 goals is marketed at 5/6.

Team News

Alphonse Areola returned to the West Ham squad in midweek after suffering with a wrist injury. He could be in line to return to the starting lineup against Wolves. Edson Alvarez is a doubt after picking up an issue in midweek. Michail Antonio remains out of action.

For Wolves, Jonny Otto remains exiled due to a disciplinary issue, while Pedro Neto and Joe Hodge are still in the treatment room.

Jarrod Bowen to score anytime @ 15/8

Jarrod Bowen is West Ham's biggest goal threat and he has been tasked with leading the line in the absence of Antonio, and he has been doing an excellent job of it. The England international has nine goals in the Premier League so far this term but just two of his goals have come on home soil - he will be eager for that to change.

His pace and trickery cause problems for most defenders he faces and we are expecting him to give Wolves a hard time this Sunday. Gary O'Neil's side have been a lot more competitive than many expected this season but they still have an issue in making mistakes which lead to goals.

If they make any this weekend that would give Bowen a sight of goal - he will punish them for it.

Hwang Hee-chan to score anytime @ 15/8

We feel like there will be goals at both ends in this contest because the Hammers themselves have been the source of their own problems at times this season. One Wolves player enjoying his goal returns this season, like Bowen, is Hwang Hee-chan.

The South Korean attacker has scored eight league goals this term, but unlike Bowen, he has been more prolific on home soil with six goals scored at Molineux. He will seek to become more prolific on the road and he will have a good opportunity to extend his tally when he faces the Hammers at the London Stadium.

He has been very reactionary this campaign and has done very well to pounce on opposition mistakes, such as his positioning when Burnley gave away the ball in a dangerous area two games ago. Hwang is full of confidence and we fancy him to join Bowen on the scoresheet in this one.
