West Ham United vs Crystal Palace

, KO: 14:00 Dec 3, 2023, London Stadium
Crystal Palace

WEST HAM UNITED will be looking to make it three Premier League wins on the spin when they lock horns with Crystal Palace at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

David Moyes’ men snapped a four-game losing streak with a thrilling 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest ahead of the international break before bagging a dramatic 2-1 win at Burnley last weekend.

That pair of victories has propelled the Hammers back into the top half of the table and they will look to continue their climb up the standings by putting Crystal Palace to the sword on Sunday.

West Ham head into this all-London affair after earning a 1-0 win at Bačka Topola in the Europa League on Thursday evening, in a game that brought up my Bet Builder.

As for Crystal Palace, they will be looking to try and turn around their current poor run of form, with last week’s 2-1 loss at Luton the Eagles’ fourth defeat in their last five Premier League matches.

Consequently, Roy Hodgson's side have slid down to 13th place in the table, however they do hold a healthy 10 point buffer over the bottom three.

Outright Betting

West Ham United are 21/20 favourites at BetVictor to earn what would be their first home win against the Eagles since 2018.

Despite claiming top honours from both meetings between the pair last season, Crystal Palace make the trip across the capital as 14/5 (Bet 365) shots while the draw has been priced up at 12/5 (PaddyPower).

Betting Angles

West Ham will have their backers at the above-mentioned price but I’m instead going to back Both Teams to Score at 5/6 with UniBet.

Goals at both ends has been a recurring theme in West Ham matches this season, with BTTS punters pocketing profit from 11 of the hosts’ 13 Premier League games this season so far.

Admittedly, you wouldn't necessarily associate Crystal Palace with scoring goals, however they pack enough punch in the final-third to cause David Moyes’ fragile defence problems

The likes of Everton, Nottingham Forest and Burnley have all breached the Hammers' backline in recent weeks so the Eagles could well get in on the act in east London.

That being said, Roy Hodgson’s side leaked two goals at Luton last weekend and three when entertaining Everton before the international break, which doesn’t augur well given that West Ham have hit the back of in 19 of their 20 matches across all competitions this season.

With all that in mind, coupled with the fact that  both teams to score has also been a winning bet in three of Crystal Palace’s last four Premier League fixtures, siding with the same selection at the London Stadium stands out at 5/6 with UniBet.

Switching attention to a player-based selection, I’ll also back West Ham’s Edson Álvarez to commit two or more fouls at even-money with PaddyPower.

The tough-tackling Mexican midfielder has committed a minimum of two fouls in four of his last six top-flight appearances and that trend could continue here at an enticing price given the pace and flair that Palace possess in forward areas.
