Bristol City aren’t the sort of side that any Premier League would want to be visiting at the moment. They have been in some sharp form. Will Wolves be able to handle themselves at Ashton Gate? Read our Bristol City v Wolves betting tips for more.
Bristol City 16/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 13th, 2019 at 3:34 a.m.)
The Robins can’t stop winning games at the moment. The Championship side are on a tremendous streak of form. They took a 2-1 home win over QPR in league action on Tuesday night, their ninth win on the bounce. Looking back a little further at their form, they are undefeated in their last fifteen (W11 D4). That’s some pretty epic stuff.
They have won their last six games at Ashton Gate as well, shipping only three goals in that sequence (three clean sheets). The Robins have scored exactly two goals in each of their last four home games and are on a nine-match scoring streak at home. In this season’s FA Cup they knocked out Premier League side Huddersfield in the third round and then took out Bolton in the last round. Both of those wins were on home soil.
Premier League side Wolves have been in good form. They got a late equaliser at home against Newcastle in the Premier League on Monday night, moving them onto a six-match undefeated streak of form (W4 D2). They have been scoring pretty well too as they have netted at least two goals in five of their last six played (a six-match scoring streak).
Wolves have suffered just the one defeat in their last six games on the road in all competitions, which was a league visit to Man City. Wolves have scored at least two goals in three of their last four away games. They have not, however, earned an away clean sheet in their last nine road fixtures. Wolves have lost two of their last three trips to Ashton Gate but took a 2-1 win on their last visit in the 2017 Championship.
We feel that there should be enough in the home side to at least get a replay out of this. Bristol City are confident and the probably aren’t going to give Wolves an easy time of things. Draw.

Wolves have some nice from behind them in the Premier League at the moment as they are on a three-match winning streak. They will get a chance to extend that a little further as they play host to Newcastle. The Magpies will start just the two points clear of the drop zone.

* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 5th, 2019 at 11:38 p.m.)
Wolves have taken three straight wins in the top flight, beating Leicester, West Ham and Everton in that run. There’s more to that as well because Wolves have produced at least three goals in each of those. So they are pretty hot right now and looking back a little further have four wins in their last six played. On home soil, they have won their last two (scoring seven goals in total). Not too surprisingly they are going as favourites for this one. Overall only 38% of Wolves’ home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals.
The last two have done so though. Wolves have taken ac elan sheet in 31% of home games this season and half of their home wins have been by a one-goal margin. They haven’t been involved in a home draw in eleven now. The home record of Wolves this season reads W6 D2 L5. Of the goals which they have produced at home so far this season, 79% of them have been in the second half of matches. 8 of their 15 second-half goals have been in the final fifteen minutes of matches. Raul Jimenez has three goals in his last two games.
Wolves were 2-1 winners over Newcastle earlier this season
Wolves have lost only one of their last four league games against Newcastle (W2 D1)
Both teams have scored in just one of the last four meetings (all competitions)
Newcastle are unbeaten in four league trips to Wolves (W2 D2)
Newcastle suffered a 1-0 reverse against Spurs last time out. That snapped some positive form as they had won their previous two games. There has been a clear picture of Newcastle’s season. They have remained undefeated home and away against sides 14th or lower in the table this season. Considering they have lost 13 games this season overall you can see that they have had real troubles against the better sides. The Magpies have taken two points from their seven away games against sides currently in the top half of the t table.
Overall this season Newcastle are a W2 D5 L5 on their top flight travels. In that sequence of away games, Newcastle have netted just the nine goals. They have earned only the one point from their last four on the road and have failed to score in two of those four. Less than half of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. Newcastle have earned a clean sheet in 33% of away games but haven’t earned one in their last four. They have been level at the half time break in eight of their road games. Huddersfield are the only side to have scored fewer league goals than Newcastle.
Wolves are in a confident mood at the moment and are growing in confidence in front of goal as well. They look as if they can hold their own against a low-scoring Newcastle side. Wolves to win to nil.

There was a good game between these two at New Meadow, with Shrewsbury very nearly getting over the line until they conceded an equaliser in stoppage time. Wolves just managed to save themselves deep into stoppage time in that one. Will they be stronger back on home soil? The winner faces a trip to Bristol City in the next round. Read our Wolves v Shrewsbury betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 2nd, 2019 at 9:12 p.m.)
Wolves are only in the FA Cup still by the skin of their teeth. Matt Doherty produced a stoppage-time equaliser for them at the New Meadow against Shrewsbury. Wolves were on top throughout though and you would imagine that they have the strengths on home soil to handle themselves easily here. They have been in good form lately as well with back to back EPL wins over West Ham and Everton behind them. Wolves scored three goals in each of those wins. The last time that Wolves played host to Shrewsbury was in the 2013/14 League One season with a 0-0 draw being placed out. Wolves lead the overall head to head between the W4 D4 L3. Wolves are on a three-match winning streak at home, having netted nine goals in that sequence of games. The first of those wins was an upset over Liverpool in the third round of this season’s FA Cup.
Shrewsbury did a great job tactically at home against Wolves in that first meeting. They deserve credit for that really. But can they now head out on the road and topple their Premier League opposition? Shrewsbury really haven’t been in great winning form, as their third round away win at Stoke is their only victory in their last ten games across all competitions (D5 L4). Away from home, it has been their only success in their last seven. A positive for them though is that they are on a need match scoring streak on their travels. This is their seventh game in this season’s FA Cup already. That’s because they needed a replay to get past Salford in the first round and them one to see off Championship side Stoke in the Third Round. Can they shake off their poor form and go and get themselves what would be a really good away win and a massive upset?
We can see this being a routine replay victory for Wolves back on home soil. They were well on top in the first meeting in terms of running the game, they should be stronger here. Wolves to win to nil at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 2nd, 2019 at 9:12 p.m.)

While it has not been the most convincing stuff from Everton this season, they will be going out in search of landing back-to-back wins on Saturday. After taking an away win at Huddersfield, they get the chance to follow up on home soil as they face Wolves. Wolves enjoyed a big success in midweek in thumping West Ham. Read our Everton v Wolves betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 29th, 2019 at 4:59 p.m.)
Everton got themselves a very welcome three points on a trip to bottom side Huddersfield on Tuesday. They got a goal on the board early in the game, but couldn’t find a second, ending up winning the game 1-0. They did finish the game with 10 men. It is back to Goodison Park for them on the weekend where they have a W6 D3 L3 Premier League record this season. Things haven’t been going too well for them there. A 2-0 win over Bournemouth in their last home fixture snapped a four-match winless streak on Merseyside for them (D2 L2). Overall home and away Everton have lost five of their last eight league fixtures (D3).
The Toffees have averaged 1.7 goals per home game this season and 33% of their games at Goodison Park have ended up over 3.5 goals. Everton have taken a clean sheet in a third of their home fixtures and in fact, four of their five home wins this season have been with one. Everton have had a big trend of being level at the half-time break in Premier League games this season. In 16 of their 24 games played this term, they have been drawing at half-time. 11 of those 16 half-time draws were 0-0 scorelines. Everton have scored the opening goal in eight of their 12 home games played.
Everton earned a point in a 2-2 draw at Wolves earlier this season
Three of the last five meetings have ended in a draw
Everton have scored at least two goals in three of their last four against Wolves
Wolves are winless in their last eight trips to Goodison Park
If anyone needs a model of how to survive in the Premier League following Championship promotion, they should just look at Wolves. Wolves took a 3-0 home win over West Ham on Tuesday making it back-to-back league victories for them. They produced seven goals in those two games as well. Overall this season away in the top flight, Wolves have posted a W4 D3 L3 record. Three of those away wins have been against sides who are currently sat in the bottom half of the table. However, they have lost just one of their four away games played against sides currently in the top eight.
Wolves lost 3-0 Manchester City their last away game, but in the away fixture before that they took a fantastic win at Tottenham. Wolves have averaged exactly one goal per away game this season and they have been defensively tight as well, conceding just 13 in those 11 games. Only 36% of Wolves away games have ended over 2.5 goals. If you look at the bigger picture of their away form they have only suffered one defeat (the game at Man City) in their last four road fixtures. Of the away goals they have produced 73% have been after the half-time break, and Wolves have failed to take a clean sheet in any of their last seven on the road.
Everton can land a bit of home cheer in this one. It’s not been all doom and gloom at Goodison Park this season and they can get across the line with three points in this one. It’ll probably be a tight game though, so Everton to win by a one-goal margin.

You have to admire the way that Wolves have gone about their business this season in the Premier League. They start this game one point above West Ham inside the top 10.

* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 25th, 2019 at 11:44 p.m.)
Wolves took a dramatic 4-3 victory at home against Leicester in their last Premier League fixture. That moved them onto a W5 D2 L5 record on home soil in the top flight. What the victory did as well, was it snapped a two-match losing streak that they were on at home. So that was a big result for Wolves with Diogo Jota netting a hat-trick in the game. Wolves have scored 16 goals at home this season and have conceded 18. Just 33% of their home games have made it over the 2.5 goals line this season. A large part of that is because Wolves have earned a clean sheet in a quarter of their home fixtures.
They haven’t managed to dig out a clean sheet in any of their last three on home soil, actually conceding at least two goals in each of those fixtures. Six of the nine League wins that Wolves have earned this season have all been by a one-goal margin. Of the home goals that Wolves outscored, 75% of them have been in the second half of fixtures. Just twice have they been leading at the halftime break on home soil. Wolves have conceded the opening goal in seven of their 12 home fixtures this season. Victory for them at home on Tuesday would really solidify their place inside the top 10.
Wolves and a 1-0 away win at West Ham at the start of September
From the five previous EPL fixtures, things are even with two wins each and one draw
Both teams have scored in just two of the last six meetings
Each of the last four games between have ended under 2.5 goals
West Ham have been on a bit of a rollercoaster with their results lately as they are W2 D1 L3 in their last six League fixtures. West Ham have struggled on the road recently having lost back-to-back games against Burnley and then Bournemouth by 2-0 score lines. Before that the way slump they have been on a three-match winning streak on their travels, unbeaten in five. The overall way record that West Ham have produced in the EPL this season is W4 D2 L5.
West Ham have produced 13 goals away from home this season, conceding 16. Less than half of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. The Hammers have failed to take a clean sheet in any of their last three games on the road. Overall this season they have taken a clean sheet in 18% of away games, but they have failed to score in 36% of road games. Victory would lift the Hammers above Wolves in the standings and a good finish in midweek action as high as seventh.
Wolves are capable of pulling out the goods on home soil in this one. Both can be a bit hit and miss, but the home side may just have that extra bit of intensity with the crowd behind them. Home win.

Shrewsbury have been rewarded for their FA Cup work with a home tie against Premier League opposition in the fourth round. Even though they are heavy underdogs for that game, this is still a good tie for them as they play host to top-flight team Wolves. Read our Shrewsbury v Wolves betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 23rd, 2109 at 3:23 p.m.)
Shrewsbury are having a fight against relegation in League One and as they step aside for FA Cup action this weekend, there are only one point clear of the drop zone. In the last round of the FA Cup Shrewsbury did cause an upset as they knocked out Championship side Stoke. The Shrews got through in an away replay. That 3-2 win that which they took against the Potters is their only victory in their last seven games. So Shrewsbury are not a team who have banked a lot of winning form lately.
But they have shown signs of resilience with just three defeats in their last 12 fixtures home and away combined. Their form at New Meadow is actually strong. Shrewsbury were on a 10 match undefeated streak of home form before losing their against Charlton in their last home fixture. So it remains a decent question as to whether or not they will be able to frustrate their Premier League opponents on the weekend.
The last time that Shrewsbury and Wolves met was back in the 2013/14 League Lne season. That shows how far Wolves have come in a relatively short amount of time. Interestingly back in 1979, the two sides met for the first time ever and that was in an FA Cup tie. Wolves hold a W4D3 L3 record from the overall head-to-head against Shrewsbury. Rovers got themselves a great three points last weekend taking a 4-3 win over Leicester.
Wolves haven’t been a particularly prolific goalscoring side this season but they have improved their goal-scoring output lately. They have scored at least two goals in six of their last 10 games played across all competitions. They caused shockwaves in the last round of the FA Cup as they took out tournament favourites Liverpool. Away from home this season, Wolves are W4 D3 L4. They have won just two of their last seven on the road and have not managed to take a clean sheet in any of those seven games in that sequence.
Shrewsbury have pretty decent home form and may be able to frustrate their opponents for awhile in the game. Because of that, we are going to simply back under 2.5 goals which is at even money* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 23rd, 2109 at 3:23 p.m.).

It has been a great season from Wolves. They deserve all of the credit that they can get for having produced so well in their first season back up in the top flight. In their first game of 2019, they did suffer a reverse against Crystal Palace in the league at home. That has left them with only the one win in their last four fixtures (home and away combined). They have suffered back to back home defeats as well and the first of those was an EPL 2-0 defeat against Liverpool just back on December 21st.
Of the defeats at home this season which they have suffered, four of them have been by a 2-0 scoreline. So that is a trend in results. Wolves have managed to hit the back of the net in only two of their last five home fixtures. However, they have shown their quality at times in pulling out some great results. They got that home win over Chelsea in the Premier League and then that fantastic comeback victory over Spurs at Wembley in the top flight. While they are at home for this one, they are underdogs and may not be facing a full-strength Liverpool side.
Liverpool ended up losing their big league clash with Manchester City 2-1 at the Etihad on Thursday night. They head back out on the road for this third round tie and more likely than not, Jurgen Klopp will shuffle his pack. He will want to come back strongly when the Premier League action returns. That is where their priority is. Away from home this season across all competitions Liverpool have posted a W8 D2 L4 record for the term. Three of their four defeats were in the Champions League group stage.
Before they went to the Etihad last Thursday they were on a three-match winning streak away from Anfield. They have put together a six-match scoring streak on their travels and they have scored at least two goals in three of their last four. The Reds do have good form at Molineux as they have gone unbeaten in four there, winning their last three. They haven’t shipped a single goal in any of their last four games there either. But there is an interesting head to head record between them in the FA Cup. Wolves are 4-2 ahead from FA Cup meetings. The last time they met was in January 2017 in the third round at Anfield and Wolves sprung a 2-1 surprise.
Liverpool to win to nil does still fit nicely for this one. A Liverpool to win to nil option at 21/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 4th, 2019 at 7:46 p.m.). They have a whole host of clean sheets in recent games against Wolves. They can do it again.
