Wolves have the ideal chance to return to winning ways after five straight league defeats when they take on Swansea in the Saturday lunchtime kick-off at Molineux.
After a promising start to the season in which they picked up seven points from their first three games, Wolves have suffered an alarming slump capped by a confidence-sapping 2-0 defeat to fierce rivals West Brom on Sunday.
This has left them just a point above the relegation zone in 16th and a point behind Saturday’s opponents Swansea.
However, Mick McCarthy’s men will still be hopeful of victory given all of Swansea’s eight points have been picked up at the Liberty Stadium.
Away from home, the Welsh side’s form is a cause for concern, with four defeats from four games, 12 goals conceded and only two goals scored.
That said, odds on a Wolves win of 19/20 do not look too tempting, meaning punters may have to look elsewhere to secure greater returns.
One possible avenue to explore is on Wolves to secure victory in a match with three or more combined goals.
While this sounds unlikely given the two teams’ poor attacking record – the Old Gold have hit the back of the net just three times at Molineux and the Swans have only two goals on their travels this season – there are signs that goals could be on the agenda.
After drawing blanks in their opening two away games, Swansea have scored in their last two fixtures on the road against Chelsea and Norwich to suggest they have turned a corner.
Brendan Rodgers’ men can therefore be backed with confidence to score a goal in the game at 9/20.
At the other end, the likes of Kevin Doyle are likely to get plenty of joy out of the second-leakiest backline away from home in the division.
As such, odds of 11/5 on Wolves to win a game with over 2.5 goals look good, with a £25 free bet on this outcome set to return £80.
Finally, it could also be worth betting on Swansea getting more goals in the first half than they do in the second given eight of the 12 goals conceded by Wolves have been let in before the break.
Those who think Swansea can use this as a platform to earn some points can get odds of 47/20 on the game ending in a draw and 57/20 on an away win.
