Wolves vs Everton betting tips and predictions
Two of the transfer window’s biggest movers and shakers face off at Molineux, but the destination of the three points is expected to have more to do with the foundations both clubs are building on than their deadline day acquisitions.
While the Toffees might be the Premier League incumbents, it’s the top-flight newcomers who appear to have a greater air of stability around them and the home win is a confident prediction in the Wolves vs Everton odds.
Having retained the high-class loanees that helped Wolves to 99 points in the second tier last term and the manager that forged them into a team, as well as adding some exciting talents, Wanderers should be far more cohesive than their hosts.
By contrast, Everton manager Marco Silva must un-Sam-Allardyce an existing squad that has been horrendous on the road for some time, winning only four of their last 29 away league games, drawing 11 and losing 14.
The most recent of those four successes came against a Stoke side destined for the drop and a Huddersfield outfit that finished 16th.
Silva too has found away triumphs tough to come by since his arrival in the English top flight, mustering four wins from 21 league games on his travels across his tenures at Hull and Watford.
A farcical 22-0 win over a hungover Austrian side Irdning may have caught the headlines earlier this summer, but the Goodison Park outfit have also lost their last four friendlies, including three-goal margin defeats versus Blackburn and Rennes.
Wolves can capitalise on their visitors’ status as a work-in-progress and, having kept six successive clean sheets at the back end of last term prior to their weird last day capitulation against Sunderland, win to nil odds of 14/5 look tempting.
Wolves really shared around their 82 league goals last term, with Diogo Jota’s 17 the most chipped in by a single player. Leo Bonatini (12), Ivan Cavaleiro (9) and Ruben Neves (6) were next best.
The Wolves vs Everton odds quote the quartet’s first goalscorer betting chances at 5/1, 11/2, 8/1 and 12/1 respectively.
Neves is also one to look out for in the player to be carded betting, along with Wanderers midfielder Romain Saiss, with both men picking up a sizeable 11 league bookings last term, along with one red for the former.
From an Everton perspective, the way Richarlison’s 2017/18 form tailed off after a positive beginning has to be a concern, with all of his five goals for Watford coming by Bonfire Night.
Those who have faith he was simply unsettled by Silva’s departure from Vicarage Road and pining for the Portuguese in the interim may be interested to know our Richarlison to score anytime odds have been enhanced from 10/3 to 4/1, while the Brazilian to score in an Everton win is now 7/1.
