Leicester City are up against Wolves at the King Power Stadium for the first time in five years. Leicester are looking to build on a campaign that saw them finish ninth in the table, but Claude Puel is preparing for his first full season with the club. Wolves manager Nuno was able to do an outstanding job to get the club promoted into the Premier League and he has spent a whopping £64 million in order to improve the squad. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Betting Tips for the game

Leicester were unable to come up with a late surge against Manchester United and ended up losing 2-1 at Old Trafford. The club has gone through a difficult summer with Puel ending with a net spend just £5.9 million.

Wolves were able to come back twice in the opener against Everton to draw 2-2 at the Molineux Stadium. The club has once again invested heavily in the transfer market to bring in the likes of Adama Traore.

The last game between Wolves and Leicester took place at the King Power Stadium in 2013. The blues were able to secure a narrow 2-1 win. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a win for Leicester City.

Match odds

Wolves are at odds of 3.90 to emerge victorious in this match. Despite the big spending, it is difficult to back Wolves in an away match. Last season, Wolves may have possessed the best away record in the Championship but the Premier League is a different animal altogether. Leicester City are quite strong at home and lost only six games at the King Power Stadium in the 2017-18 season. The biggest advantage for Leicester is the return of some key players like Jamie Vardy, who is more likely to start this match after being a substitute against United due to a lack of fitness. Our preview would back a win for Leicester.

Leicester City vs Wolves draw odds: 3.50

Wolves win odds: 3.90

Correct Score odds

Leicester’s attacking potential will improve substantially due to the return of Jamie Vardy. The pace and finishing skills of the forward will be crucial for Leicester throughout the campaign. Meanwhile, Wolves possess a young, hungry, and exciting team that is capable of scoring plenty of goals. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 2-1 Leicester City win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

There is a good chance of experiencing a high scoring match as this is a game that involves two teams that possess plenty of strength going forward – even if Leicester City are without Riyad Mahrez, who has been one of their biggest contributors in the last few years. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

The return of Jamie Vardy gives Leicester a massive lift and a chance to get a first win of the season. Vardy faces Wolves for the first time since 2012-13. Back then, he failed to score in two games against the Midlands outfit but he is a vastly improved forward since those days. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Vardy.
