West Ham vs Crystal Palace odds
*Odds correct as of 15:55 on December 2
West Ham went into the November international break in the top half of the table and as December comes around they’ll be hoping to climb further up. The Hammers did suffer slightly before the break, losing three games in a row as well as a draw, but they did manage to end that streak. In their final game before the break, West Ham pulled off a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Nottingham Forest thanks to Tomas Soucek’s late winner, and they’ve backed that up with a 2-1 victory away at Burnley and a 1-0 Europa League win over TSC Backa Topola, Soucek once again proving the match-winner in both.
Crystal Palace, meanwhile, sit in the bottom half with four defeats and one win from their last five games. The Eagles are struggling for form right now, drawing with Nottingham Forest before losing to Newcastle, Tottenham, Everton and Luton. Their only solace during that run was a 2-0 win over Burnley, though the Clarets are bottom of the league. They’ll be hoping to turn things around as we head into a busy period.
