Wolverhampton Wanderers host a Tottenham side on Saturday evening at the unusual time of 7:45pm. Spurs visit the Molineux stadium still licking their Monday night wounds but hope to get back to winning ways after a hard-fought midweek win over West Ham in the Carabao Cup.
Wolves vs Tottenham: Odds and Predictions
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are a surprisingly short 21/10 to claim all three points whilst Tottenham’s odds of victory have been priced up by the William Hill traders at a 13/10 pick.
A draw is trading at a 12/5 tip in the odds and our Wolves vs Tottenham predictions and betting tips are backing exactly that when the sides meet.
Ahead of their clash with Man City, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino described his current mood at the club as his “worst” since joining the club.
Spurs’ new stadium will not be ready this year, they made no signings in the summer and have taken only one point so far in the Champions League group stages.
That said, Tottenham sit in a relatively comfortable position in 5th place, only five points behind the City side that just beat them.
Further down the table sit Wolves in 10th position and off the back of two consecutive defeats in the Premier League. They lost 1-0 to Brighton last weekend, a week after losing 2-0 to Watford.
Nuno’s side haven’t scored since beating Crystal Palace on the 6th October and could find themselves sliding down the table if they fail to score again when Tottenham come into town.
Top scorer Raul Jimenez has a mere two goals to his name last striking in September against Burnley. His projected anytime to score odds against Spurs trade at 9/5 in the betting.
Head-to-head (most recent first): Tottenham Hotspur v Wolverhampton Wanderers D 1-1, Wolverhampton Wanderers 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur, Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-3 Tottenham Hotspur, Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers, Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur.
Wolves vs Tottenham match betting: correct score, best bet, scorer tips
Match prediction: Draw and under 2.5 goals, betting @ a 3/1 pick
The first instalment of our Wolves vs Tottenham predictions back a low-scoring affair with a sharing of the spoils of war.
Among the top 10 sides in the Premier League, Tottenham and Wolves have scored the least amount of goals with 16 and 9 a piece. Better still for this bet is the fact that Tottenham’s last four Premier League games have seen a total of four goals. As for Wolves, their last seven games has seen a lousy ten goals for all sides with an under 2.5 goals betting tip paying off every single time.
This then is expected to be a low-scoring affair and that shouldn’t be surprising considering the defensive stance both coaches take. Tottenham have conceded a mere 8 goals whilst Wolves have seen only nine goals fly past.
Goalscorer prediction: Christian Eriksen to score anytime at 16/5
The Danish wizard came on in the second half against Manchester City on Monday night and helped shift the tide against the Champions.
It wasn’t enough to nick a result but having just come from a one-month injury lay off, Eriksen looked sharp and agile.
The second instalment of our Wolves vs Tottenham predictions is projecting an away goal for the Dane when his side visit the Molineux stadium on Saturday.
Eriksen has just the sole goal this season but that was away at Inter Milan and our betting tips figure a player who scored 10 league goals lasts season will finally open his account.
With a strong average of 2.3 shots per game, our Wolves vs Tottenham predictions and betting tips reckon this punt – at relatively long 16/5 odds – should be well worth your consideration this weekend.
