Currently in the relegation zone and separated by just two points, both teams will be hoping for a victory that could lift them out of the bottom three.
Enjoying a mini revival in recent weeks with two wins and just one defeat from the last five matches, the Hammers are priced at 49/50 (1.98) with BetSafe to give their survival chances a boost with a big three points against their fellow strugglers.
Without a win in seven matches since replacing Tony Pulis, Alan Pardew is available at 7/2 (4.50) to finally get off the mark as Baggies boss against the club where he spent three relatively successful seasons as a manager.
Six of the last seven encounters between these sides in East London have resulted in draws, and there are odds of 12/5 (3.40) available on them cancelling each other out once again in this one.
Evenly matched head-to-head
Although clearly delighted to have beaten Chelsea and held Arsenal to a stalemate in the last five matches, David Moyes will be disappointed his side have taken just a point from the last two games against fellow relegation candidates Newcastle and Bournemouth.
Having claimed hard-earned points against Arsenal and Everton in their two most recent fixtures, West Brom are likely to provide another difficult test for a team that has struggled in matches against the less high profile opponents.
Despite failing to win a game since August, the visitors have actually lost fewer games than eight other teams in the division – drawing at least two more than any other side.
Tips and Predictions
With West Ham having drawn two of their last four games in front of their own fans, those 12/5 (3.40) odds are well worth the investment on a typically tight and scrappy matching resulting in a stalemate for their seventh home game in eight versus West Brom.
