Wolves are in danger of conceding the seventh-place to Leicester City when they entertain Manchester United at the Molineux Stadium in the midweek action. Wolves remain in the seventh-place but they are now joined by Leicester City, who are level on points. Even a big victory for the Foxes will be able to see them overtake Wolves, who are up against a United team that jumped into the top four with Arsenal only playing on Monday night. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Wolves witnessed a conclusion to the three-game unbeaten streak in all competitions as the team lost 2-0 against Burnley at Turf Moor. The international break clearly came at the wrong time for Wolves, who beat Manchester United in the FA Cup just before the break.
Manchester United laboured to a 2-1 victory over Watford in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first game as the permanent manager of the club. After back-to-back losses in all competitions, this victory was crucial for the Red Devils.
The previous league meeting between Wolves and United produced a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford back in September. United’s last trip to the Molineux Stadium for a league meeting ended up as a huge 5-0 success back in 2012 when Sir Alex Ferguson was in the dugout. United’s most recent trip to the ground was in the FA Cup when they suffered a 2-1 loss after an underwhelming performance. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Wolves had to endure a disappointing loss against Burnley during the weekend. This was yet another underwhelming display from Nuno’s team, who had just one shot on target. However, Wolves play much better at home and they have lost only once at home in 2019. Manchester United’s recent performances have not been good and even the win over Watford was quite dull. Our preview would go with a draw.

Manchester United win odds: 1.90
Wolves win odds: 4.00
Correct Score odds
Wolves have been able to score in seven straight matches at the Molineux Stadium. Crucially, they have managed less than 1.5 goals only once in this run. Manchester United have been quite poor on the road with no clean sheets in four games, but the return of some key players helps Solskjaer. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
It is remarkable that just two of the last six matches at the Molineux Stadium has been low scoring and both games have involved relegation-threatened opponents. Manchester United have a lot more firepower than the likes of Cardiff, who were able to prevent a high-scoring game on this ground. However, United have been lethargic in recent weeks. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Wolves managed just one shot on target against Burnley, but Raul Jimenez has been in exceptional form – especially in home games – for the last few months. Jimenez has scored four goals in his last five appearances at the Molineux Stadium, while he also scored the opening goal against United in the recent FA Cup meeting. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Jimenez.
