Wolves will be keen to revive their hunt for Europe when they take on Cardiff City at the Molineux Stadium this weekend. Wolves are seven points behind Chelsea in the sixth place with Nuno’s men having a great opportunity to finish in the Europa League. Wolves were able to overtake Watford despite losing in the midweek action. Meanwhile, Cardiff City dropped back into the bottom three with the team now trailing Southampton by two points. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Wolves lost for the first time since the middle of January, as a late goal from Huddersfield Town resulted in a 1-0 defeat for Nuno’s men. Wolves had gone eight games without a defeat in all competitions before this loss.
Cardiff City were exposed by Everton, who picked up a 3-0 win at home in the recent match. This was the second consecutive heavy defeat for Cardiff, who have conceded late goals in the last two home games.
The reverse fixture produced a 2-1 victory for Cardiff, who have also picked up a similar victory when they last travelled – when both clubs were in the Championship – to the Molineux Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions expect a success for Wolves.

Cardiff have been disastrous over the last few weeks as even home form has deserted the club. Just when it seemed that the club would be able to pull together a string of results that would end fears of a relegation, Cardiff have slipped back into the bottom three. Wolves strengthened their position for a European qualification spot even further with a strong set of results in recent weeks and the club is especially strong at home with only five losses in 14 league matches this season. Our preview would go with a win for Wolves.

Wolves vs Cardiff draw odds: 4.33
Cardiff City win odds: 8.00
Correct Score odds
There have been very less goals from Cardiff over the last few games but they have been shipping goals for fun with an incredible eight conceded in the last two matches. Wolves have been resourceful going forward and they have averaged two goals per match in the last six games – despite failing to score against Huddersfield. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for Wolves.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There has been just one example of a low scoring game between these two teams in the past. Wolves were quite shaky in the final moments of the game against Huddersfield and showed that they can be susceptible when the opposition push a lot of players forward. However, Cardiff lack quality going forward and our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Raul Jimenez is the only Wolves player to hit 10 goals for the campaign. Even though his recent form has dipped with just one goal in his last five appearances, Jimenez has the potential to capitalise on a terrible defence possessed by Cardiff. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Raul Jimenez.
