Wolves and Leeds are next to each other in the Premier League table and it is not easy to split them on current form ahead of Friday night’s clash.
However, we’re not keen to go for a draw, as United have only shared the spoils twice all season and are on a 14-match run without a stalemate in this competition.
Bearing that in mind, we like 13/10 for either side to win by a one-goal margin for our first Wolves vs Leeds prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves have recovered from a slump in form which lasted from mid-December to the end of January, picking up seven points from three league games this month.
Wanderers secured a 2-1 home win over Arsenal and a goalless draw with Leicester here before coming from behind to prevail 2-1 at Southampton.
Pedro Neto’s winner came from an inside-right raid, with Nuno Espirito Santo urging his attacking players to exploit those spaces more clinically.
“I think it was a beautiful goal, a beautiful action from Pedro,” said Nuno. “We can produce these moments, but the team has to keep working.
“When the wingers changed sides, when they were on the inside of the game, they saw more action.
“They are very talented players, their games are based on one-v-one situations, and when they have space they are very difficult to stop.”
Leeds often adopt a man-to-man marking system at the back, so that should allow Wolves to set their wingers free.
Looking at the Wolves vs Leeds odds, we feel 27/20 for Wanderers to score more than once for the third time in four league games is a good option.
Last Wolves line-up: Rui Patricio, Coady, Jonny, Semedo, Neves, Saiss, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Neto, Jose, Traore.
A Look At Leeds United’s Betting Odds
Leeds have been involved in more than their fair share of entertaining encounters this term and are coming off another one at Arsenal.
United were on the wrong end of a 4-2 scoreline at Emirates Stadium, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hitting a hat-trick for the Gunners.
However, after being dominated for 50 minutes, second-half goals from Pascal Struijk and Helder Costa set up an uncomfortable end to the game for the hosts.
Struijk, whose powerful header brought his first goal for the club, revealed Marcelo Bielsa had called for more energy during his half-time team talk.
“We didn’t bring the energy we always bring, so it’s a bit disappointing we didn’t do that,” said the former Ajax defender.
“The majority of what was said was to bring the energy back, then the football will come.
“It’s such a difference when we do that, our football is so much better.”
Leeds had won three of their previous four matches, including away victories at Newcastle and Leicester.
Their record on the road now reads six wins and the same number of defeats, with no draws!
In four of United’s last 13 games at any ground, the team to score first has gone on to taste defeat, highlighting the exciting nature of their contests.
That makes 6/1 for either side to lead and then lose worth adding to our Wolves vs Leeds betting tips, especially as that wager would have paid out in half of Wanderers’ last six top-flight fixtures, too.
Last Leeds line-up: Meslier, Ayling, Cooper, Struijk, Alioski, Dallas, Harrison, Klich, Shackleton, Bamford, Raphinha.
Southampton 1-2 WOLVES – Ruben Neves (pen), Pedro Neto
Arsenal 4-2 LEEDS – Pascal Struijk, Helder Costa
Head-to-head: Leeds 0-1 Wolves, Leeds 0-3 Wolves, Wolves 4-1 Leeds
