Wolves News and Form
Wolves were dealt another blow as they threw away a lead at Cardiff to end up losing 2-1 in South Wales. That is just one point which they have earned in their last six games. They have picked up W2 D2 L3 record at home this season but they have lost each of their last three at Molineux. Both of the home wins that they have managed to take this season were against sides currently sitting in the bottom three (Southampton, Burnley).
In their seven home games, Wolves have come up with eight goals. Only 29% of their home fixtures have made it over 2.5 goals. Under 2.5 goals is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm). Wolves are without a clean sheet in their last six league games and they have actually conceded at least two goals in each of their last three home games.
A Chelsea 2-0 correct score is at 8/1 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm). Of the goals that they have returned at Molineux, Wolves have scored 88% of them after the half time break. They have been trailing at both half time and full time in each of their last three home games. They have not conceded a home goal in the final fifteen minutes of a match

Chelsea News and Form
Chelsea took a 2-0 home win over Fulham in the West London derby on the weekend to give themselves a lift after having lost 3-1 at Spurs the weekend before. The defeat against Spurs is Chelsea’s only loss in all competitions this season. The Blues have W4 D1 L1 for the season away from home. They have scored well on their travels, picking up 13 goals and conceding just the four. Chelsea to win to nil is at 15/8 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm)
The Blues have banked a clean sheet in 67% of their road games. Still, 83% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals which is a nod towards their scoring power. All but one of their away games have gone over the goal line. A Chelsea/Chelsea half-time/full-time bet is at 7/4 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm).
There’s a trend to support that as the Blues have been winning at half time in three of their six road games. Nine of their thirteen away goals this season have been in the second half of games. Chelsea have scored the opening goal in all but two of their road games this season.
Who will win – Wolves v Chelsea Predictions
It has been a tough time of things for Wolves and that defeat against Cardiff was a huge blow to their confidence. Chelsea haven’t looked as good as they were earlier in the season but should have enough quality about them to secure the three points at Molineux.
