Wolverhampton Wanderers Preview – Will Wanderers make it two wins on the spin?

Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolverhampton Wanderers got their Premier League season up and running in the best possible way last Monday. Wolves were incredibly quick out of the blocks in Sheffield, with goals from Raul Jimenez and Romain Saiss in the opening six minutes proving to be enough for a 2-0 victory over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

Wolves have had two very successful seasons in the top flight since winning the Championship, but can they break into the Premier League’s top four this term? Despite finishing in seventh place last season, Wanderers missed out on the UEFA Europa League due to Arsenal winning the Emirates FA Cup. Nevertheless, 59 points was an excellent return.

Our betting prediction:
Wolves to win -1

(odds taken 1613 GMT, Wednesday 16 September)

Wolves had a busy 2019-20 season, which started in July 2019 and ended in August 2020. However, with no European football to deal with, can Wolves be a force to be reckoned with in the cup competitions this season?

Stoke City Preview – Can O’Neill’s Potters cause Wolves problems at Molineux?

Michael O’Neill did a good job at the bet365 Stadium after arriving last season. Despite a patchy start under O’Neill, the Potters finally got their act together, going on to secure a 15th-place finish.

Stoke ended with ten points from the last 12 on offer. They beat Birmingham City, Brentford and Nottingham Forest, and drew with Bristol City. City finished eight points clear of 22nd-placed Charlton Athletic in the end.

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Stoke City Betting Advice

Since Nuno arrived in the West Midlands, Molineux has been turned into a fortress. Wolves are incredibly hard to beat on their own patch, and they should be too strong for Championship side Stoke in the cup on Thursday.


Key Facts – Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Stoke City Betting Tip

  • Wolves were beaten just four times at Molineux in the Premier League last term
  • Only Barnsley and Charlton Athletic picked up fewer away points than Stoke in last season’s Championship
  • The Potters have won four of the last five league and cup meetings between the two, though Wolves won the last one (2-0)


The last meeting between the two was an FA Cup game at the bet365 Stadium in January 2017. Stoke cruised to a 2-0 victory in Staffordshire, with Helder Costa and Matt Doherty getting the goals. We fancy a similar outcome from this one.

You can get the 2-0 Wolves win at 13/2, which is certainly worth having a punt on. Also, take a look at the hosts to win to nil at 13/8.
