What Trueform says for Wolves vs Leicester
Wolves and Leicester have both endured mixed fortunes in recent weeks but we reckon Wanderers are worth support in this Premier League clash at Molineux.
Nuno Espirito Santo has a settled side and a fan base fully behind him, whereas the Foxes seem beset by disharmony off the pitch at present.
Punters can get 13/10 for a home win here and that gets the nod for our initial Wolves vs Leicester prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves never really had a chance to extend their excellent record against the top clubs when losing 3-0 at Manchester City, conceding early on and then having Willy Boly sent off inside 20 minutes.
Wanderers did threaten to equalise when Jonny narrowly failed to connect with Diogo Jota’s cross on the break, though, and managed to limit any damage against the free-scoring champions.
Conor Coady was unfortunate to concede an own goal but told the club website: “I thought the boys dug in, to be honest. We had to battle.
“We’ve got a big game next week now, so we dust ourselves down this week, make sure we’re ready and try and get them on it.”
Wolves had previously beaten Liverpool here in the FA Cup and produced a late flourish to defeat Tottenham at Wembley a fortnight ago, so we’re not ready to desert them just yet.
Looking at the Wolves vs Leicester odds, we like 9/1 for the hosts to win 2-1 for the fourth time in 10 outings.
Last Wolves line-up: Rui Patricio, Doherty, Bennett, Boly, Coady, Jonny, Neves, Jota, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Jimenez.
Boly starts a three-match ban, so Belgium international Leander Dendoncker looks set to drop into the backline as cover, with Wolves expected to revert to a four-man midfield.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester failed to bounce back from a shock FA Cup loss at Newport when beaten 2-1 at home by Southampton, despite facing only 10 men for half of that match.
Wilfred Ndidi did manage to pull a goal back just before the hour mark, but the damage had been done when trailing 2-0 at the break.
“We wanted to have a good reaction and response after our FA Cup game,” said head coach Claude Puel.
“The players were focused before the game with good concentration, perhaps a little too nervous and we showed this feeling sometimes in the first half.”
Despite having led the Foxes to wins over Manchester City, Chelsea and Everton during the festive period, Puel has come under continued fire from disgruntled supporters.
That discord appears to have had an effect on the players, so we’re adding 27/10 for the hosts to lead at half-time and full-time to our Wolves vs Leicester betting tips.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Chilwell, Morgan, Pereira, Maguire, Maddison, Albrighton, Mendy, Ndidi, Choudhury, Vardy.
Leicester defender Jonny Evans has made a rapid recovery from a toe problem and is fit. Daniel Amartey is a long-term absentee with a broken ankle.
Man City 3-0 WOLVES
LEICESTER 1-2 Southampton – Wilfred Ndidi
Head-to-head: Wolves 0-0 Leicester, Leicester 2-0 Wolves
