Sunderland vs Wolves – Both teams scoring looks best bet

| 14.05.2011

Sunderland appear to have rediscovered their scoring touch of late and there is every chance that they will find the target again in their home clash with Wolves.

Both Teams To Score

After a sequence of failing to score in five of six Premier League games, Sunderland have netted six goals in their last three fixtures.

Wolves also need goals to help improve their precarious position just above the Premier League relegation zone, but their fight for safety just remains in their own hands.

It is 4/5 in the Premier League odds that both teams score at the Stadium of Light and some statistics also back up that this is liable to happen.

Neither team has managed to keep a clean sheet in the last nine showdowns between the pair, while 15 goals have been scored in their last three Premier League encounters.

Furthermore, Sunderland have failed to shut out the opposition at the Stadium of Light this season since New Year’s Day.

However, Sunderland do have a lengthy injury list to contend with, particularly in attack as Asamoah Gyan, Danny Welbeck and Fraizer Campbell are sidelined.

Match Odds

Picking a winner is no easy feat given the difficulty that both teams have had securing three points this season.

Sunderland have been defeated in five of their last six matches at home, while Wolves have triumphed in just two of their last 21 outings on the road in the Premier League.

Football odds of 13/8 are available that Sunderland beat Wolves as they continue their chase to finish in the top half of the Premier League standings this season.

Wolves’ odds are 13/8 to claim victory, while the draw that could prove valuable in their quest for survival is priced at 23/10.

A £30 stake on Sunderland beating Wolves 2-1 would return £240. New customers can sign up here for a free £30 bet.
