Kick-off: 1400, 11/08/2019
Stadium: King Power Stadium
Leicester and Wolves are both rated among the best teams playing in the Premier League outside of the big six elite clubs and could be set for a close encounter.
The Foxes have home advantage, but Wanderers should have a fitness edge following their Asia Trophy triumph and Europa League exploits.
That all points towards this being an even contest, so 23/10 for a draw is our initial Leicester vs Wolves prediction.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester showed plenty of promise last term after luring Brendan Rodgers away from Celtic, embarking on a run of six wins in nine games before a difficult run-in.
The former Liverpool boss loves to play attacking football at a high tempo and that was reflected in the £30million capture of Newcastle star Ayoze Perez.
Belgium attacking midfielder Dennis Praet is another who fits the profile of a typical Rodgers player following his £18m capture from Sampdoria.
Completing a £40m permanent deal for Youri Tielemans following his successful spell on loan from Monaco was another coup, while ex-Luton full-back James Justin looks to have a bright future.
Losing England centre-half Harry Maguire to Manchester United is obviously a big blow, but we still see City as being in good shape for the new campaign.
Looking at the Leicester vs Wolves odds, we like 7/2 for a score draw.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves were a breath of fresh air in their first season back at this level, finishing seventh in the table and reaching the FA Cup semi-finals.
Nuno Espirito Santo had a settled side playing some attractive football and their record against top teams was excellent.
Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United were all beaten in the league, while Liverpool were knocked out of the cup.
Wanderers were a little shaky on the road at times during the second half of the season, but edging out Manchester City on penalties in the Asia Trophy final and emphatic Europa League away wins against Crusaders and Pyunik Yerevan augur well.
Tying down Raul Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker on permanent moves was obviously a wise option, while Real Madrid defender Jesus Vallejo could prove another shrewd loan signing.
Landing Italy striker Patrick Cutrone from AC Milan for £16m looks a good bit of business and several youngsters have come in to help build for the future.
The Midlands outfit do have some pretty tough early fixtures to negotiate this term, but 1-1 would be a nice start here and 23/4 for that scoreline completes our Leicester vs Wolves betting tips.
LEICESTER 0-0 Chelsea
Pyunik Yerevan 0-4 WOLVES – Matt Doherty, Raul Jimenez (2), Ruben Neves (pen)
Head-to-head: Wolves 4-3 Leicester, Wolves 0-0 Leicester, Leicester 2-0 Wolves
