Kick-off: 1400, 01/12/2019
Wolves are unbeaten in eight Premier League matches and will be seeking a third straight win in this competition when entertaining Sheffield United.
However, the Blades have not lost in six outings themselves and are yet to taste defeat from six road trips since moving up to the top flight.
That all means 12/5 for a Molineux stalemate makes sense as our opening Wolves vs Sheff Utd prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves struggled to cope with mixing Europa League action and domestic duties for a while this term but now look right back on track.
Wanderers moved up to fifth in the table when securing a 2-1 success at Bournemouth, where Joao Moutinho and Raul Jimenez did the damage.
Moutinho opened the scoring with a dipping free-kick from an acute angle, before his quick set-piece culminated in Jimenez sweeping home his sixth goal in seven outings from Adama Traore’s centre.
“People were a little bit nervous, because at the start of the season there were so many draws,” Traore told his club’s website.
“But the work is there, the passion is there. The results come, but the important thing is we have to keep going game by game.”
Wolves haven’t failed to hit the target in a dozen Premier League fixtures, since opening up with a goalless stalemate at Leicester.
Looking at the Wolves vs Sheff Utd odds, another solid option is 4/1 for a score draw.
Last Wolves EPL line-up: Rui Patricio, Doherty, Coady, Jonny, Neves, Jota, Saiss, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Jimenez, Traore.
Romain Saiss will be suspended due to collecting his fifth booking of the season, so Ryan Bennett may return from a groin injury to replace him after missing Thursday’s 3-3 Europa League draw in Braga.
Morgan Gibbs-White (back) is likely to sit out and Willy Boly (fracture leg) is sidelined.
A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds
Sheffield United were outstanding for 70 minutes against Manchester United at Bramall Lane, with John Fleck and Lys Mousset giving them a deserved 2-0 lead.
The Blades, who were without keeper Dean Henderson versus his parent club, were then hit by a three-goal blitz in seven minutes but at least recovered to claim a point via Oli McBurnie’s stoppage-time strike.
Chris Wilder said: “We just dropped off our energy levels. The old saying ‘2-0 is a dangerous scoreline’ turned into ‘oops, we’re 3-2 down’.
“I would have been really disappointed had we not got anything from this game, because for the majority of the time, we were right up there in terms of the performance levels.”
That promising performance was far from a one-off for the Yorkshire outfit, who are just a point behind Wolves in sixth.
The Blades have won away to Everton and drawn at Bournemouth, Chelsea, Watford, West Ham and Tottenham.
Everyone is waiting for their bubble to burst, but until that happens, they have to be respected.
Let’s finish off our Wolves vs Sheff Utd betting tips by taking 6/1 for the visitors to secure a fourth 1-1 stalemate on the road.
Last Sheff Utd line-up: Moore, Baldock, Stevens, O’Connell, Basham, Jagielka, Fleck, Lundstram, Norwood, McGoldrick, Mousset.
Henderson is available again, while John Egan has recovered from a head injury. Lys Mousset should be fit despite a slight hamstring problem.
Braga 3-3 WOLVES – Raul Jimenez, Matt Doherty, Adama Traore
SHEFF UTD 3-3 Man Utd – John Fleck, Lys Mousset, Oli McBurnie
Head-to-head: Wolves 3-0 Sheff Utd, Sheff Utd 2-0 Wolves
