Wolves v Fulham: Hosts likely to edge Friday night thriller

| 03.11.2017

Wolverhampton Wanderers’ meetings with Fulham have produced one enthralling game after another in recent times. And there’s plenty of reason to expect another goal-filled cracker at Molineux.

The hosts have won three games on the trot and sit top of the Championship table heading into the weekend. As for the Cottagers, they’re winless in four – but have scored in seven of their eight away games this term.

Wolves look the pick in the match betting at 4/5, with Fulham 7/2 for victory and the draw priced up at 14/5.

However, with the stats all pointing towards a flurry of goals, the best value lies elsewhere.

The past three meetings have produced a 4-4 draw, as well as 3-1 and 3-2 victories for the West Midlands club.

That means we like the look of Wolves to Win and Over 3.5 Goals at 17/5.

However, with the visitors having lost two of their last four away games by a 2-1 scoreline, victory by that scoreline for Nuno Espirito Santo’s men could also prove popular at 7/1.

In the goalscorer markets, the hosts’ Ivan Cavaleiro looks worth backing. He scored home and away against this opposition last season, and found the net in the recent win over Preston North End. The former Monaco man is 23/10 in the Anytime Goalscorer market.

For the visitors, midfielder Stefan Johansen has found the net in four of his last nine outings. And the skilful Norwegian looks good value to add to that tally at 7/2.
