Tottenham v Wolves betting tips: Top six the focus for Spurs

| 15.05.2021

Spurs’ thoughts of a top-four finish have made way for the Europa League after they shot themselves in the foot at Leeds last weekend.

A 3-1 defeat at Elland Road, coupled with Leicester’s win at Manchester United on Tuesday, means Tottenham appear out of the running for a Champions League spot but a win against Wolves – priced at 8/15 – will give them renewed hope of finishing in the top six.

We have picked out some of the markets to help you with your Tottenham v Wolves betting tips.

Match Odds

Spurs conclude their season with three matches against midlands clubs, starting with Wolves who have won the last two trips to Tottenham.

Raul Jimenez was on target in 3-1 and 3-2 victories but the Mexico striker remains out of action after fracturing his skull against Arsenal in November.

Wolves are 11/2 to make it a hat-trick of victories and 11/1 to win and concede while we go 10/11 on both teams to score, the outcome in the last five meetings between these sides.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have won three of their last five games, all against teams in the bottom four, and they drew 1-1 with Tottenham at the end of 2020 when they recovered from conceding a goal after 57 seconds to rescue a point four minutes from time courtesy of a Roman Saiss header.

A share of the spoils is priced at 3/1 and a score draw is 17/4 while Tottenham are 31/20 to score exactly one first-half goal which has been the case in eight of their last 10 matches.

Talking Tactics

Ryan Mason could make changes after an underwhelming performance at Leeds virtually ended their top-four hopes.

Mason has favoured a 4-2-3-1 formation to accommodate Gareth Bale, with Harry Kane leading the line.

Winger Adama Traore is pushing for a place in Wolves’ starting line-up after scoring the equaliser in a 2-1 win against Brighton.

Goalscorer Odds

Kane is pushing for the Golden Boot and he was unlucky not to make it 22 for the season at Leeds when he was penalised for the most marginal of offsides.

The England skipper has five goals in his last six appearances and is 11/4 to bag the opener and evens to score any time while Son Heung-min is 4/1 and 6/4 in the same markets having found the net at Elland Road.

Traore is 11/2 to make it back-to back goals for Wolves but Fabio Silva is the favourite to get on the scoresheet at 3/1.
