Wolves - Leicester Betting Preview: Hosts habit of fading favours the Foxes on Sunday
Two of the pre-season favourites do battle when Nigel Pearson's side travel to Molineux. Adam Bate sees both teams scoring but the Foxes having the final sayIt’s been a difficult start as Wolves boss for Stale Solbakken as he has been forced to deal with off-field issues for much of his first three months in the job.
But with the transfer window closed he can now get down to business – starting with the quest for three points at home to Leicester.
Wolves welcome back Karl Henry into midfield after picking up just one point from two games without him.
The return of the skipper should allow the rest of the midfield – packed with talent such as Tongo Doumbia and Bakary Sako - to play with real freedom.
Wolves can be backed to pick up just their second league win at Molineux of 2012 at 6/4 (2.50) with Bet365.
Like their hosts, Leicester started the season among the favourites to win promotion from the Championship but it’s been a stuttering start for Nigel Pearson’s side.
Two home wins must be set against two disappointing away defeats and with a Capital One Cup exit to Burton in the middle of all that the jury is still out on Pearson in his second spell at the club.
Leicester are slight underdogs at 9/5 (2.80) with Bet365 while the draw is available at 9/4 (3.25).
A key positive for the Foxes despite three defeats already is that they have scored in all six matches this season in all competitions. Meanwhile, Wolves are yet to keep a clean sheet.
As a result, it seems reasonable to expect goals at Molineux and you can back over 2.5 of them at 4/5 (1.80) with Bet365.
Wolves have scored the first goal in each of their last four games and can be backed to make it five in a row at 5/6 (1.83).
But even more tellingly they have conceded the last goal in all six games this season – that’s some statistic given that Leicester are odds against at 11/10 (2.10) with Bet365 to net last here.
That’s a great value bet in this one. But for the pick of the bets it is risky to rule out the 1-1 draw so we will be ducking the over 2.5 goals and going for both teams to score here at 8/13 (1.62) with Bet365.
