Wolves still have a bit of work to do to qualify for Europe again next season but should close in on that target by seeing off Crystal Palace.
The Eagles travel to Molineux on a six-match losing run and have only managed to hit the back of the net in one of those Premier League fixtures.
Taking 21/20 for a home win to nil here is an easy option for our opening Wolves vs Crystal Palace prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves dropped out of contention for a top-four finish when suffering back-to-back defeats against Arsenal and Sheffield United earlier this month.
However, they recovered well by beating Everton 3-0 in the Midlands and were a touch unfortunate to only draw 1-1 at Burnley on Wednesday.
Raul Jimenez put Wanderers ahead at Turf Moor with a superb volley on 76 minutes, but Chris Wood levelled for the Clarets via a stoppage-time penalty.
“I think we will always be able to react to the not so good performances and bounce back and play good after those games,” said Nuno Espirito Santo.
“It is always the same and has been this way since three seasons ago. I think it is a long process of building and improving and we are still on the way.”
With plenty left to play for, another focused performance can be expected from Wolves, although big wins are not the norm for this team.
Seven of their last eight league matches have seen under 2.5 goals scored, so 21/4 for a 2-0 victory stands out from the Wolves vs Crystal Palace odds.
Last Wolves line-up: Rui Patricio, Boly, Coady, Vinagre, Neves, Podence, Saiss, Moutinho, Jimenez, Jota, Traore.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace emerged from Thursday’s 2-0 loss to Manchester United at Selhurst Park with mixed feelings.
The Red Devils could easily have doubled their tally when impressing on the break during the second half, but the Eagles had earlier been on the wrong end of another contentious refereeing decision.
Five days after having a goal harshly ruled out by VAR at Aston Villa, Roy Hodgson was left fuming when Victor Lindelof got away with a clumsy challenge on Wilfried Zaha in the penalty area.
VAR was also required when Jordan Ayew slid in Zaha’s cross with 55 minutes on the clock and it ruled the forward to be marginally offside.
“Certainly, we are not fortunate at the moment,” stated Hodgson. “The gods of fortune are not smiling on us with certain decisions.
“We have won games and got good results against top teams like Man United playing a lot worse than we did here.”
The stats do at least suggest Palace should be able to stay in this contest up until the interval, with both sides struggling to score in the opening period of late.
Punters can get 7/5 for this to be 0-0 at half-time and that is worth adding to our Wolves vs Crystal Palace betting tips.
Last Palace line-up: Guaita, Ward, Van Aanholt, Dann, Sakho, Milivojevic, Townsend, McArthur, McCarthy, Ayew, Zaha.
