There is still a bit of pressure on Southampton at the moment as they start the weekend five points above the drop zone. They put in a good display last time out on home soil against Liverpool but ended up losing 3-1 after having taken the lead in the game. Southampton have won three of their last five league fixtures and two of those were at St Mary’s. The Saints have only won four home games this season (D6 L6) but they have been producing much better their recently. Southampton are currently on an 11 match scoring streak on home soil in the top flight.
Southampton average 1.25 goals per home games this season and 69% of all games at St Mary’s in the top flight have made it over 2.5 goals this term. Southampton have taken a clean sheet in 19% of home games, while both teams have scored 75% of all of Southampton’s home fixtures. Three of their four wins on home soil this season have been by a one-goal margin. In nine of 16 home games, this season Southampton have managed to open the scoring. Still, there are only three teams with a worse home record in the top flight than Southampton.
Wolves were 2-0 home winners over Southampton earlier this season
Wolves are on a four-match winning streak against the Saints
Both teams have scored in just two of the last ten meetings
The Saints have lost just one of their last five league home games against Wolves (W2 D2)
Last weekend Wolves looked as if they were on their way to an FA Cup final appearance, leading Watford 2-0 at Wembley with 10 min on the clock. But then they suffered a late collapse only to lose in extra time against the Hornets. That was an exhausting game for Wolves and it must have taken something out of them both physically and mentally. That was such a disappointment from the position which they have played themselves into. Out on the road in the Premier League, this season Wolves have produced a W5 D5 L6 record.
Wolves are currently winless in their last four road games, losing two of those. They have averaged exactly a goal per game on their travels this season while they have conceded at an average of just 1.2 goals per road games. 31% of all of Wolves away games this season have finished over 2.5 goals only. Wolves have claimed a clean sheet in 12% of away games this season and they have conceded in each of their last 12 on their travels. Wolves have scored 69% of their away goals this season in the second half of matches.
The Saints look a bit of value to go and get the win on the board here. They have been playing so much better lately and that Wembley loss has to taken something out of Wolves, physically and mentally. Home win.

Wolves suffered a disappointing defeat out at Burnley in league action on the weekend. But they have some solid form at home behind them. Man Utd have already lost at Molineux this season, will they suffer the same fate on their return? Read our Wolves v Manchester United betting tips for more.
Man Utd 10/11
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 31st, 2019 at 4:16 p.m.)
Wolves suffered a tame 2-0 loss out at Burnley on the weekend. That is only their second defeat in their last nine played though. The two defeats in that sequence were away from home as well. Wolves are on a four-match undefeated streak of form at home (W3 D1) currently. They won their last home fixture 2-0 against Cardiff. Wolves have produced a total of 22 goals at home this season, while they have conceded 19. Just 33% of league games at Molineux have gone over 2.5 goals. Wolves have earned a clean sheet in a third of their home games.
Wolves have produced at least two goals in each of the last three home wins. Each of Wolves’ last six league games, home and away have gone under 2.5 goals at the final whistle. Of the goals that Wolves have come up with at home, 73% of them have been in the second half of matches. Just three times this season have Wolves been leading at half time in a home fixture. They have opened the scoring in 7 of their 15 games at Molineux so far. Raul Jimenez has scored in three of their last five league games.
There was a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford between them in September
Wolves beat Man Utd 2-1 at home in this season’s FA Cup
Six of the last seven meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Wolves are W2 L2 in their four previous EPL home games against United
The Red Devils collected a 2-1 smash and grab job against Watford on the weekend at Old Trafford. Away from home, this season Manchester United are at W9 D2 L5 for the season. They suffered a defeat in their last road game, a 2-0 loss out at top-four rivals Arsenal. Manchester United have scored a total of 30 goals away from home this term, while they have conceded at an average of 1.4 goals per game. United have taken a clean sheet in 31% of their games, four of their five coming in their last six on the road.
United though have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last four, home and away. 69% of United’s away games have gone over 2.5 goals this season. Four of the five fixtures which they have suffered on the road this season have been by a two-goal margin. The Red Devils have had their struggles against Wolves this season, only managing a 1-1 draw at home against them in the league, before exiting the FA Cup against them at Molineux. United have opened the scoring in half of their away games this term, and only Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City have scored more league goals than they have produced.
Wolves are a solid unit on home soil and have shown already that they can frustrate the Red Devils. This may be another case of the same thing happening. Wolves will be up for the challenge and they could well get out of the duel with a share of the spoils. Draw.

Burnley are back in trouble as they have fallen badly out of form. It is a four-match losing streak that the Clarets are on. They welcome Wolves to Turf Moor on the weekend, with the visitors looking for more points as they push for a top-seven finish. Read our Burnley v Wolves betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 24th, 2019 at 10:18 p.m.)
It is trouble for the Clarets at the moment who are on a four-match losing streak. They suffered a 2-1 reverse against Leicester last time out, which was with Leicester going down to ten men early in the first half. That was a huge dent in Burnley’s survival hopes. The Clarets are W5 D2 L8 on home soil in the top flight this season, losing their last two there. Burnley have scored in seven of their last eight games, so they have that going for them. They didn’t manage a clean sheet in any of those eight games though.
67% of fixtures at Turf Moor this season have gone over 2.5 goals, with 40% going over 3.5 goals. Both teams have scored in two-thirds of games there. Three of Burnley’s five home wins this season have been by a one-goal margin. They are actually on a ten-match scoring streak at Turf Moor and have scored 67% of home goals in the first half of matches. Burnley are without a clean sheet in five at home in the EPL. They have conceded five goals in their last two home games.
Wolves were 1-0 winners at home against Burnley in September
Wolves won their one previous EPL visit to Turf Moor in 2010
Burnley have scored one goal in their last three against Wolves
Four of the last five meetings have gone under 2.5 goals
Wolves haven’t played in the league since back on March 10th, but they did make it through to the FA Cup semi-finals at the expense of Manchester United since then. Wolves have only suffered a defeat in their last eight league games now. They have been a little bit stronger on home soil during that sequence it needs to be said. They are winless in three on their travels (D2 L1) and have won only one of their last five away from home in the EPL. Wolves have tallied up sixteen goals on their travels which has taken them to a W5 D5 L5 record away from Molineaux.
Strangely Wolves are just D1 L3 this season away at sides currently in the bottom six. Just 33% of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals, despite them only taking a clean sheet in just 13% road games. Of the five away losses that they have suffered, three of them have been by a one-goal margin only. Wolves have a half time record of W3 D7 L5 away from home. They have not managed to take a clean sheet in last eleven on the road. Each of their last five games, home and away, have gone under 2.5 goals. Wolves have scored 69% of their road goals in the second half of games.
Wolves haven’t quite delivered away from home against teams near the bottom. So there could be a chance for Burnley to come up with something in this one. But that’s most likely a point as Wolves are so difficult to beat.

The Blues start the weekend in sixth and need to keep some winning momentum going to push for a top-four finish. Chelsea have won their last two League games. They will be looking for some revenge at the Bridge on Sunday against Wolves, who beat them back in December. Read our Chelsea v Wolves betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 8th, 2019 at 3:40 p.m.)
Chelsea have taken back-to-back League wins over Spurs and Fulham. That leaves them with three wins in their last four League outings. They do also have some pretty good home form running on their side at the moment having won each of their last three at Stamford Bridge. Overall this season Chelsea are W9 D4 L1 on home soil in the top flight. The Blues are undefeated in their last four on home turf since a loss against Leicester back on December 22. The Blues have averaged exactly 2 goals per home game this season, while they have conceded just nine goals in their 14 played at the Bridge.
The Blues have earned a clean sheet in 50% of their home League games this season, and less than half of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Chelsea have conceded just the two goals in their last eight League home games. Home and away they have only managed two clean sheets in their last seven played though. The Blues have not been losing at the halftime break in any home League game this season. They have returned at least two goals in each of their last three at Stamford Bridge. Five of their last seven games (home and away) have ended up going over 2.5 goals. Of their nine home wins this season, five of them have been by a two goal margin. Only the current top two in the League have a better defensive record in the Premier League than Chelsea.
Wolves pulled off a 2-1 home success over Chelsea earlier this season
The Blues had won four in a row over Wolves prior to that
Chelsea have won all four previous EPL home games against Wolves
Both teams have scored in just two of the last nine meetings
It has been a tremendous season for Wolves up in the top flight but they collected a 2-0 win at home of Cardiff last weekend, snapping a three-match winless streak they were on (D2 L1). Wolves have recorded a W5 D4 L5 season on their top-flight travels and from their six away games played against current top half of the table sides, Wolves have lost just one, which was at Manchester City. They have picked up draws at both Arsenal and Manchester United, and collected three points away at Tottenham. That has been a fantastic return.
So they should be a threat in this one. Wolves have scored 15 goals in their 14 away games this season, and only 36% of their away games have managed to go over 2.5 goals. Wolves have struggled for clean sheets away from home having taken just the two. Wolves have not earned a clean sheet away from home in any of their last 10 though. 67% of the away goals that they have scored this season have been produced in the second half of matches. To their a huge credit, Chelsea are only one of four sides in the division to hold a better defensive record than Wolves.
Wolves are likely to put up a decent challenge in this one and it is worth backing both teams to get on the scoresheet, especially with Chelsea having been in Europa League action on Thursday. But still they should produce a home win and therefore Chelsea to win and both teams to score is a good proposition.

Huddersfield lost again on the weekend, their fifth premier League defeat on the bounce. That leaves them fifteen points from safety. Wolves continued their positive form with a point earned out at Bournemouth. Read our Huddersfield v Wolves betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 24th, 2019 at 7:43 p.m.)
The Terriers lost their fifth straight league game in a row over the weekend, going down 2-0 at Newcastle. That leaves them with only one point earned from their last fourteen league fixtures. Huddersfield have scored only the one goal in their last six league games played now. Their overall home form for the season is at W1 D2 L11 and they are currently without a win in eight EPL games there. They have conceded in each of those eight games in that sequence.
Huddersfield have lost their last seven on the bounce at the John Smiths Stadium. Of the eleven defeats that they have taken at home, seven have been by a one-goal margin only. The Terriers have been losing at the half time break in 8 of their 14 home fixtures in the EPL. The bulk of the goals that they have conceded have come in the first half of matches. They have the worst home record in the league.
The Terriers earned a 2-0 win at Wolves in November
Huddersfield are on a four-match winning streak against Wolves
Each of the last four meetings have ended under 2.5 goals
Both teams have failed to score in each of the last five clashes
Wolves collected a point out at Bournemouth on the weekend which saw them move on to a five-match undefeated streak in the league (W3 D2). So they have been carrying some good form lately. They have lost just one of their last six games out on their travels as well. On their travels this season they have scored 15 and conceded 15. Just 38% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. They haven’t however earned an away clean sheet in any of their last nine.
Wolves look pretty strong and solid at the moment and they have scored 67% of their away goals in the second half of games. To their huge credit, there are only four teams in the league currently who have a better defensive record than Wolves. This looks like another top chance here for them to improve their already very good record this season.
Wolves to win by a one-goal margin at 12/5
Under 2.5 goals at 8/15
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 24th, 2019 at 7:43 p.m.)
The Terriers just are not offering anything up. They will be facing a very settled and confident Wolves side here. The visitors are a solid option to back to pick up three points.
25th February 2019 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The inconsistencies are back in Bournemouth’s season as they have lost their last two Premier League outings. But those were both out on the road and they will be banking on their home form to get them through this. The visiting Wolves are in brilliant form at the moment with just two points dropped in their last four League games. Read our Bournemouth v Wolves betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 21st, 2019 at 3:27 p.m.)
Bournemouth looked to be on the up with convincing back-to-back wins over West Ham and then Chelsea. But it has fallen apart from them as they have lost their last two at Cardiff and Liverpool without scoring. But that sums up their season they have been solid at home and really flimsy on their travels. Bournemouth are currently undefeated in their last four home games, winning three of those. Each of those three victories in that sequence were with a clean sheet as well. Bournemouth have averaged just under two goals per game at home this term.
Overall this season, the home form of Bournemouth is at W7 D3 L3. The three defeats which they have suffered at the Vitality Stadium this season have been against sides currently in the top five. 69% of Bournemouth’s home games this season have ended up going over 2.5 goals. Just once have the Cherries been losing at halftime on home soil this season. Another big trend with them is that they have scored at least two goals in each of their last four home fixtures. The bottom two of Huddersfield and Fulham are the only two sides have conceded more goals than Bournemouth this season.
Wolves were 2-0 winners at home over Bournemouth this season
The Cherries are undefeated their last four home games against Wolves
Wolves have won just one of the last six against Bournemouth
Three of the last four meetings have ended in a 2-1 scoreline
Wolves are having a better season than expected in the top flight and they are now currently undefeated in their last four. They have dropped only the two points in their last four games, which happened in their last League fixture a 1-1 draw against Newcastle. Away from home, this season Wolves are at W5 D3 L4. Surprisingly three of the four defeats that they have suffered on the road have been against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. It seems as if they have been able to raise their game in the tougher challenges.
Wolves have scored 14 and have conceded 14 goals away from home this season. They have won three of their last five away fixtures, and their last two away wins have both been 3-1 successes (at Tottenham and then at Everton). Wolves haven’t managed a clean sheet in any of their last eight away games so there are some vulnerabilities their. For them to be riding up in the top 10 and comfortably so, it has been some season from them. There are only four sides in the League who have a better defensive record then Wolves have this season.
It is easy to knock Bournemouth’s their defence as it has been somewhat hapless away from home this season. Their home form is pretty good though and there is enough value in them to back them to get the three points.

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. Read our Wolves v Newcastle betting tips for more.
* (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.

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.

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.

* (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.

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.
