Most Crystal Palace fans will have happy memories of the last time we met high-flying West Ham away from Selhurst, writes Jamie Hinks.
The Millennium Stadium wasn't defined as an away match though and this is where the problem lies for Dougie's charges. Of the 13 times the two have faced off at the Boleyn Ground the away side have come away with one win and four draws with eight losses.
Those fancying a flutter would be best advised to stay away from a Palace win. Having scored six in the past two games, staking money on an Eagle to score is the best bet.
Looking at goalscorers you'd fancy Wilf to be up for a big game like this one and his pace will trouble the Irons back line. He's 7/2 to score at any time with both bet365 and Paddy Power - transgender female optional – or 11/1 first goalscorer with Bet Victor.
Fans slightly more skeptical about Palace's chance will look at Nicky Maynard in the opponent's side and run straight to the nearest bookie.
The forward has scored three in his last four against the Eagles and West Ham to win 2-1 with the former Bristol City striker scoring an attractive 33/1.
…and last but not least, you’ve got to put some money on West Ham having a man dismissed. It’s now happened three games on the trot and bet365 has people laying 1/100 on it occurring. Tasty!
