History is on Wolves’ side for the visit of Leeds
Wolves haven’t won at Molineux since the start of October but are unbeaten in five, home and away, and there are high hopes that a visit from Leeds United will end with three points.
Only a late goal from Nottingham Forest substitute Dexter Blackstock denied Wolves a victory last week after an opener from Ethan Ebanks-Landell. Jordan Graham and Adam Le Fondre had opportunities to extend Wanderers’ lead and we have priced up that pair at 4/1 and 2/1 respectively in our Anytime Goalscorer betting to find the net against Leeds, though it would be no surprise to see Benik Afobe recalled for this one and he is 7/4 in the same market and 9/2 to be First Goalscorer – no Wolves’ striker has scored in almost a month, however.
Recent history is very much in Wolves’ favour in this fixture. Leeds haven’t won at Molineux since 1984 and the home side have won five of seven meetings in that time with two draws. A Wolves win this Thursday is 19/20 in our Full Time Result betting, though Jackett’s men have drawn their last three home matches and that outcome is 49/20.
Home fans wouldn’t mind a repeat of last season’s dramatic 4-3 victory over Steve Evans’ team, who have proved inconsistent this season. But Leeds’ away matches tend not to feature many goals and they’ve drawn a blank themselves in their last two – it’s 23/20 for 0 in our Goals Way Team market this Thursday. Wolves, who aren’t conceding many, are 5/4 in our Home Team To Keep A Clean Sheet betting.
The match kicks off at 7.45pm on Thursday, December 17th at Molineux
