WEST HAM will be looking to make it three Premier League wins on the spin when they welcome Norwich to the London Stadium on Wednesday night.

Having recovered from a mid-season wobble, the Hammers enter this contest off the back of back-to-back league wins, getting their push for a top-four berth back on track in the process.

David Moyes' men recorded a much-needed 4-1 win at Watford before surviving a late New Year's Day scare to see off Crystal Palace, in a game which brought up my Over 2.5 Goals selection at Selhurst Park.

Fresh from booking their spot in the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 2-0 win over Leeds, the capital club will be keen to keep the feelgood factor flowing when basement club Norwich come calling.

Many have already consigned the Canaries to the Championship next season, yet they remain just three points from safety – albeit having played a game more than Watford and with a far inferior goal difference.

Dean Smith's initial three-game unbeaten run after taking charge at Carrow Road is now a distant memory, as Norwich make the trip to East London in the midst of a five-game losing streak in the Premier League.

Outright Betting

Unsurprisingly, West Ham are red-hot favourites to make it four wins on the bounce across all competitions, with a home win trading at a lowly 2/7 (SBK).

Norwich have triumphed in just two of their 19 top flight outings this term and the bookies odds suggest that wretched sequence is set to continue, with an away success an unfancied 25/2 (SBK) while the draw is also deemed unlikely at 5/1 (SBK) with the same firm.

Betting Angles

The odds about a straight West win are very short, so the best way to squeeze some value out of this could be by delving into the Bet Builder market and combining a home win, under five match goals and over zero Norwich cards at 5/6 (Bet 365).

Granted, West Ham have been flying the flag for goal-based backers this season, but they will be coming up against a shot-shy Norwich side that have scored just eight league goals at the half-way stage of their campaign.

What's more, the Canaries have scored a mere four goals from open play this term, not to mention they have failed to notch in 13 of their 19 league outings thus far.

With that in mind, coupled with the fact that 10 of Norwich's 13 Premier League defeats this season have featured fewer than five match goals, I'm happy to combine a home win with under five match strikes.

With Champions League chasing West Ham expected to dictate the tempo of the game, I'll round off the Bet Builder with a minimum of one Norwich booking.

Dean Smith's side are averaging 1.89 yellow cards per-game this term, with the Carrow Road club collecting at least one caution in 17 of their 19 league assignments to date.

Elsewhere, I'll dip into the anytime goalscorer market and have a nibble on the 11/10 (Ladbrokes) for West Ham forward Michail Antonio to get on the scoresheet.

The Irons' talisman has struck in each of his last three Premier League appearances and he looks nicely priced to continue his recent hot-streak against the joint-leakiest defence in the division.
