Wolves News and Form

Wolves can be pretty happy with their start to the new Premier League season. They have taken five points from their four games. That’s not so bad from a newly promoted side really and definitely something to build on. They are just lacking that touch of clinical finishing in the box really as they have only produced the two goals in their last three games, so need a little more in that department. In their last couple of games they got a well-deserved draw against Manchester City and then a win over Newcastle at St James Park. In the over/under market, under 2.5 goals is at 8/13 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 13th, 2018 at 8:16 p.m.).

Wolves have seen each of their last three games in the Premier League this season go under the 2.5 goal line. They have had some great performances from individuals like Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez but it was new singing Adama Traore who got their winner against West Ham just before the international break. All of his appearance have been off the bench so far ]after his move in the summer. He is at 3/1 odds in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from September 13th, 2018 at 8:16 p.m.).

Burnley News and Form

Burnley would have been hoping for a strong start to build on the strong season that they had last term. It hasn’t happened though and four-games into the new season they have just the one point to show for their efforts. They are on a three-match losing streak heading into this one after losing at home against Manchester United just before the international break. They have shipped at least two goals in each of those three defeats as well. So they are not strong at the back at the moment and are struggling for the firepower to cover that up. That is five defeats in their last six Premier League now.

In their two away games so far they have played out a 0-0 draw at Southampton on the opening weekend of the new term. Their second away game ended in a 4-2 defeat at Fulham. In five of their last six games in the Premier League Burnley have conceded at least two goals. You are looking at 13/2 odds for Wolves 2-0 correct score option which is worth considering as Burnley look a little disjointed at the moment. Last season the Clarets posted on W7 D7 L5 record away from home averaging 1.05 goals per game. Will the international break have done them good in recharging their batteries?
