Wolves once again face a quick return to domestic action after a European trip in midweek and Burnley know just how tough that can be.
The Clarets made a slow start to last season as they struggled to balance the Premier League with the demands of Europa League qualifying.
A midweek trip to Italy to face Torino makes this a good time to go to Molineux and the visitors to avoid defeat at 19/20 is our first Wolves vs Burnley prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves face their third match in the space of seven days when they face Burnley on Sunday afternoon.
The games are coming thick and fast, with the midlanders having little time to dwell on Monday night’s 1-1 draw against Manchester United before they were jetting out to Italy.
They have made a solid start to the season with draws against Leicester and United but their success last season was helped by the use of a small and settled squad.
Their European matches mean there is more need for rotation this time and that could prove detrimental, at least in the short term.
Wolves lost 2-0 at Turf Moor in their most recent meeting with Burnley in March and the physical approach of their opponents could take its toll on tired legs.
With a full week of preparation we’d fancy Wolves to edge it but instead we think they will be held to a third league draw at 5/2 as the second of our Wolves vs Burnley betting tips.
Last Wolves line-up: Patricio, Doherty, Bennett, Boly, Coady, Jonny, Neves, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Jimenez, Jota.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley made a flying start to the new season with a 3-0 win against Southampton and they gave a good account of themselves last week in a 2-1 defeat at Arsenal.
Goalkeeper Nick Pope felt the difference between the two sides at the Emirates Stadium was minimal and said: “The performance was really encouraging. We put Arsenal under some real pressure by pressing high up the pitch and we got some joy from that.
“When you come to the big grounds and the top six that’s how you want to play and, unfortunately, we just fell a bit short. We put them under some real pressure, and we were a bit unfortunate at the end.”
Wolves showed last season that they could be vulnerable against such tactics, with relegated Huddersfield doing the double over them.
Last Burnley line-up: Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters, Cork, Gudmundsson, McNeil, Westwood, Wood, Barnes.
WOLVES 1-1 Man Utd – Ruben Neves
Arsenal 2-1 BURNLEY – Ashley Barnes
Head-to-head: Burnley 2-0 Wolves, Wolves 1-0 Burnley, Burnley 1-1 Wolves, Wolves 0-0 Burnley
