Match odds

Leicester City are in a problematic situation coming into this match after losing three out of the last four matches. The foxes are going through a crisis in terms of confidence with most of these losses coming against teams that could have easily been beaten. Wolves also have suffered back-to-back league defeats but the club have a way of playing that makes them extremely difficult for opponents – especially the Molineux Stadium. Our preview would go with a win for Wolves.

Wolves vs Leicester City draw odds: 3.20

Leicester City win odds: 3.40

Correct Score odds

Wolves have not been amongst goals but their counter-attacking style cannot be very effective in this match. Leicester defend with numbers and this is likely to make Wolves task much harder. Even then, the likes of Raul Jimenez do make it difficult for the opposition to contain Wolves. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-0 win for the home team.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Wolves have been able to achieve a string of goals in terms of the home matches but they have not scored in the last two league matches at the Molineux Stadium. However, this could all change against a Leicester City outfit that has only kept two clean sheets in the last six away matches. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Raul Jimenez has been able to get six league goals this season – including the first goal against Liverpool in the recent FA Cup match. Jimenez has now scored against Tottenham and Liverpool in the last two games. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Jimenez.
