|West Ham are 8/11 with bookmaker BetVictor to bounce straight back to the Premiership
when they take on Nationwide Division One play-off final opponents
Crystal Palace (Even money) on May 29.
Alan Pardew's side booked their final place thanks to a 2-1
aggregate victory against Ipswich while Palace won a dramatic
penalty shoot-out against Sunderland to set up the Cardiff showdown.
The Hammers were relegated from last year's Premiership with
crippling debts of over £40million but will rake back
more than half of that sum if they defeat Palace and make it
back to the big time.
Victory for Palace, who went into the four team play-offs as
13/5 chances, would complete a remarkable turn-around for Ian
Dowie's men who plunged as low as fourth from bottom of the
table at Christmas.
Palace won the most recent league clash between the two sides
1-0 at Sel Hurst Park in April with the Hammers claiming a convincing
3-0 victory at Upton Park back in October.
