Wolves were a class apart in the Championship last season and are expected to adapt well to life in the Premier League, starting with a home game against Everton.
Wanderers were always up at the right end of the table and ultimately finished nine points clear, despite easing off in the last couple of matches.
Nuno Espirito Santo has added some quality signings to an already-talented squad and 7/5 for the Midlands outfit to open with a home win is our first Wolves vs Everton prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves spent big to get out of the Championship, with £16million midfielder Ruben Neves just one of several high-class captures.
The recruitment drive has continued this summer, with Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio following £10m defender Willy Boly and Mexico forward Raul Jimenez to Molineux.
Wanderers have done well against top-tier teams in cup competitions over the past two years, beating Liverpool and taking Manchester City to penalties.
They play the kind of high-tempo football which should be suited to the Premier League and will have the backing of a fanatical home support which has craved this return to the big time.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Sam Allardyce did a fine job in steadying the ship at Everton after replacing Ronald Koeman last term, steering them clear of a potential relegation battle to end up in eighth place.
However, his tactics did not go down well at Goodison Park and former Watford boss Marco Silva will now take charge of the ambitious Toffees.
Wayne Rooney’s departure suggests Silva will seek to quicken up Everton’s attacking play, but a more open approach may also initially lead to problems at the back, even with England star Jordan Pickford between the posts.
When Silva was with the Hornets, they could be very entertaining going forward, but fragile in defence.
That makes 18/5 for a home win and both teams to score worth adding to our Wolves vs Everton betting tips.
