Liverpool vs. Wolves Predictions and Preview
Liverpool are in a commanding position atop the Premier League – 10 points clear of second-placed Leicester while also having a game in hand.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have dropped just two points from 17 Premier League games and have won 25 of their last 26 going back to April.
Wolves have lost just once in their last 13 league games but conversely have won just six of 18 Premier League games to date.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are the draw specialists in the top-flight – with nine to date this campaign, more than any other side.
Unsurprisingly due to their stature, the hosts are favourites for this encounter at odds of 3/10 with a Wolves victory priced at 9/1 and the draw available at 9/2.
There have been 56 goals over Liverpool’s 17 league games – over three per game – while 48 goals have flown in during Wolves games this term. Over 3.5 goals is priced at 29/20 with over 4.5 at a tempting 10/3.
A ‘double chance’ on Wolves to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 5/2 while a Liverpool win/draw outcome is at 1/25.
If you fancy the home side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 4/5.
One to watch for Liverpool: In-form forward Sadio Mane netted twice for Liverpool against Wolves in May while he has 13 goals in total this season – and is at a tempting 1 to find the net here.
One to watch for Wolves: Raul Jimenez has 16 goals this season and six in his last 10, while he is available at 10/3 to score here.
Long shot: Wolves have kept a clean sheet in two of their last three outings while City failed to score in the encounter earlier in the campaign. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 16/1.
