It’s Valentine’s Day on Friday. Love will be in the air all around the country but not in one specific part of the Black Country.
Molineux plays host to what promises to be a cracking match between Wolves and Leicester as both teams look to get their seasons back on track following their short winter break.
Expect Another Tense Match
This weekend’s fixture list is a mirror image of the first day of the season. Hopes are always high at the start of a new campaign but usually fade as time goes on. That, so far, has not happened for either Wolves or Leicester, both of whom have a real chance of earning a place in the Champions League.
Leicester, of course, are very much in the driving seat. Despite dropping away slightly from the high standards they set in the first half of the season, the Foxes head into the weekend in third place and as available only at heavy odds on with the bookmakers to finish in the Champions League places come May.
Wolves can be backed at a best price of 12/1 with Paddy Power to force their way into the top four which shows that their chances are slim but by no means over.
Nuno Espirito Santo is far from happy with Wolves’ recent form which has seen them win just one of their last six league matches. Wolves fans are more than happy to take a longer term view given how far their team has come over the last couple of years.
Like so many teams, the Champions League is the main goal for Wolves but Espirito Santo isn’t about to change his approach to go chasing the top four.
These two teams showed each other a great deal of respect when they met on the first weekend of the season. Nothing will change in that regard on Friday night and we’re expecting a tight match.
We don’t, however, expect another 90 minutes to pass without a goal being scored so the odds of 6/1 that bet365 are quoting on the 1-1 correct score look tempting.
Game to Come to Life in the Second Half
Wolves have a habit of coming on strongly in the second half of matches. It’s a combination of fitness, mental strength and the quality of the options on the bench available to Espirito Santos.
In fact, only three Premier League teams have a better second half record than Wolves, one of which is Leicester. There may well be a cautious start to this match but the second half record of both teams suggest it will really come alive after the half time break.
The online bookies provide a few ways to take advantage of this.
The first we’d recommend is betting on the second half to have more goals than the first which is available at a best price of 11/10 with Betfred.
Second, consider betting on the 0-0 half time score at 7/4 with BetVictor. These are two well drilled defensive units with quality players in key positions so the defences are likely to be on top in the first half before things open later on.
