Wolverhampton Wanderers v Tottenham Hotspur: Tricky Away Trip for Busy Spurs

wolverhamptonWhen Spurs arrive at Molineux for Saturday’s 7.45pm kick off, they will be preparing for their third game in six days. They have a big squad but that’s not in ideal situation and it’s one of the reasons why Wolves will get plenty of support in the result markets.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have made a reasonable start to the campaign and currently sit in tenth place but can they take advantage of what could be a weary set of travellers this weekend?

Match Odds

The result betting shows odds against prices on all three possible outcomes but it’s Spurs who start as favourites here at a best of 5/4 with Betway. Victory for Wolves is next on the list at a top price of 51/20 with Black Type but you can get the same best odds of 51/20 on the draw – this time with MarathonBet.

Aside from that busy week, Spurs have not been at their best in recent games, securing 1-0 wins over Cardiff and West Ham. The fluid football has disappeared and against a tough Wolves team who will take the game to them, the visitors look especially vulnerable here.

Individual Goal Scorers

Harry Kane

Harry Kane

We’ll confirm our match verdict later but who are the men who can decide the destiny of this contest? The obvious answer to that question starts with Harry Kane and the Spurs man begins as favourite to open the scoring at 33/10 with MarathonBet. Fernando Llorente is next at a top price of 32/5 with MarathonBet once again but the Spanish international has yet to start a Premier League game this season and probably should be avoided.

Tottenham players continue to dominate this market and you can pick up attacking midfielders Lucas Moura and Son Heung-Min at the same best odds of 7/1 with BetBright. Wolves finally get a mention through Leo Bonati at 15/2 with BetBright and Betway while Diego Jota is available at 9/1 with Black Type and Betway.

A couple of Spurs players catch our eye here as Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli make their way back into the side after injury. Eriksen is quoted at best odds of 10/1 with BetBright while Dele is at that same 10/1 with William Hill and Royal Panda.

It’s conceivable that either, or both of those players, will start from the subs bench so we’ll head once again to the relative safety of the anytime goal market and take Dele at industry best odds of 4/1 with BetFred.

Other Side Bets

tottenhamSpurs used to be a fairly sound banker in the Both Teams to Score betting but this bet hasn’t come in for any of their last four league games. For Saturday, BTTS looks reasonable as a result of this run at a top price of 4/5 with both 10Bet and SportPesa.

If you think Spurs will follow the pattern of their recent matches then the No option in the Both Teams to Score market is quoted at 109/100 with MarathonBet or you could take Tottenham to win to nil which is available at best odds of 58/19 with 188Bet.

Wolves to win to nil is quoted at a generous top price of 5/1 with BetFred and BetBright and while we don’t think that’s likely, there is some definite value in the home side for this match. Admittedly, form isn’t great and Nuno Espirito Santo’s side come into the tie having lost both of their previous league games. Overall, however, it’s been a positive start for the hosts and they have the type of battling and attacking game that can trouble a Tottenham team that’s having issues at the back.

Over 2.5 goals will be another popular bet at Even Money with Unibet while a correct score of 2-1 in favour of Wolves is a punt at 11/1 with BetFred. However, we’ll simply back Wolves to upset the result betting while these additional side bets will hopefully contribute to a profitable 90 minutes.

Best Bets:

  • Wolves to win at 51/20 with Black Type
  • Dele Alli to score any time at 4/1 with BetFred
  • Both Teams to Score at 4/5 with 10Bet
