Wolves v Everton betting tips: Hosts hope to strike gold

Wolves v Everton betting tips and odds

In-form Wolves can leapfrog Everton and move into the top half of the table with victory on Monday night.

Bruno Lage’s side have taken 10 of their 13 points from their last four matches and are 6/5 to beat an Everton team that were booed off after a 5-2 home defeat by Watford last weekend.

The Blues are 12/5 to win at Molineux but let’s look at some of the other options in our Wolves v Everton betting tips.

Match Odds

Wolves were denied a fourth successive victory last weekend when Rodrigo scored a stoppage-time penalty for Leeds to earn a 1-1 draw at Elland Road.

That would also have been their fourth win by a one-goal margin which can be backed at 11/4 as one of our Wolves v Everton betting tips.

Wolves developed a reputation as a second-half team under Nuno Espirito Santo and that remains the case under their new manager whose side have been leading just once in the opening 45 minutes, scoring only two goals.

Both teams have been drawing at the break in five of their nine matches which is 10/11 while a goalless first half is 11/8.

The momentum certainly appears to be with the hosts, who scored three goals in the last 10 minutes to win 3-2 at Aston Villa a fortnight ago.

We go Draw HT/Wolves FT at 4/1 while Everton HT/Draw FT can be backed at 14/1, although it’s 33/1 on Everton HT/Wolves FT as it was at Villa Park.

That said, the Blues won both matches by one-goal margins last season and although they have their injury problems, Richarlison is likely to start having made a scoring appearance from the bench last weekend.

Everton to win by a one-goal margin is 19/5 while it’s 2/1 on both teams to score, over 2.5 goals and either team to win which would have paid out in three of the last six meetings between these teams.

Talking Tactics

Lage went with a 3-4-2-1 at Elland Road where Raul Jimenez led the line with Hwang Hee-chan and Adama Traore playing just behind.

Leander Dendoncker and Joao Moutinho occupied central midfield roles with Rayan Ait-Nouri on the left and Nelson Semedo on the right.

Everton boss Rafael Benitez once again opted for a 4-4-1-1 with Salomon Rondon still searching for his first goal since joining the club.

He could either be replaced or start up front with Richarlison in a 4-4-2 which would mean Demarai Gray switching to the left wing where he has been most effective.

However, key players Abdoulaye Doucoure and Dominic Calvert-Lewin remain sidelined.

Goalscorer Odds

Jimenez is 4/1 favourite to break the deadlock, despite scoring just once this season, so Hwang may be a better option at 5/1 or 23/10 to find the net for a fifth time this season.

Conor Coady and Saiss provided the springboard for Ruben Neves’ dramatic winner at Villa Park and the two defenders can be backed at 18/1 and 6/1 to get on the scoresheet again in our Wolves v Everton betting tips.

Rondon is the 6/1 favourite from the Everton contingent to draw first blood but Richarlison looks better placed at 13/2 and 14/5 in the two markets.

Andros Townsend and Gray are 11/1 and 9/1 to net the game’s opening goal or 9/2 and 7/2 in the anytime options.
