Wolves vs. Manchester City Predictions and Preview
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.
Manchester City remain 11 points off the pace I the Premier League but have played a game more than league leaders Liverpool.
However, the champions have recovered some form in recent weeks with relatively comfortable wins over both Arsenal and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Unsurprisingly due to their stature, the visitors are favourites for this encounter at odds of 38/100 with a Wolves victory priced at 7/1 and the draw available at 4/1.
There have been 70 goals over City’s 18 league games – almost four per game – while 48 goals have flown in during Wolves games this term. Over 3.5 goals is priced at 6/4 with over 4.5 at a tempting 18/5.
A ‘double chance’ on Wolves to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 21/10 while a City win/draw outcome is at 1/16.
If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 21/20.
One to watch for Wolves: Rapid winger Adama Traore netted twice for Wolves at City earlier in the season while also scoring recently against Spurs – and is at a tempting 13/2 to find the net here.
One to watch for Manchester City: Raheem Sterling has 18 goals this campaign including three in his last three and is at 24/5 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 14/1.
