Wolves vs Blackburn – Expect a rousing ‘we are staying up’

| 20.05.2011

Sunday’s tie at Molineux could prove to be a huge ante-climax should the three sides below Wolverhampton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers lose.

There’s no doubt there will be a tight and tense atmosphere but both sets of supporters could be rejoicing together come the final whistle and with that in mind this game may turn into a damp squib.

Match Odds

Both Wolves and Blackburn are available at 8/1 to go down and it would take a big Blackburn victory – something they managed in Decemeber – to send Wolves down should none of the sides below them win.

Wolves have never beaten Blackburn in the Premier League yet they are the 11/10 favourites to take all three points.

Blackburn have picked up just one win in their last 14 games and they offer very little value at 13/5 to win.

If Blackburn are to lose, two of Wigan, Blackpool or Birmingham have to win to send Rovers down which looks unlikely.

A Wolves win looks likely to keep both sides in the Premier League and both sets of fans can rejoice come the final Premier League whistle on Sunday.

Total Goals

Steven Fletcher has scored in four of Wolves’ last five games and the £8.5m man can score the goal that is reportedly worth around £50m.

Fletcher is 5/1 to get the first goal of the game and we believe it will be the only goal of the game with Wolves 7/1 to win 1-0.

The 1-1 scoreline is favoured at 11/2 and has to be respected considering Wolves have drawn both of their Premier League games with Blackburn, but the 1/1 for under 2.5 goals in the game looks the pick of the betting market.

A £10 stake on Fletcher scoring first and Wolves winning 1-0 would return £290. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of a free bet worth up to £30.
