Tottenham vs Wolverhampton Betting Tips
Heed the head-to-head data
Over the previous five meetings between Tottenham and Wolverhampton, Spurs have won three (with one draw). One victory over Wolves was on penalties during the EFL Cup, which Tottenham won 4-5 after a 2-2 tie after extra time.
However, each showdown has been relatively close, with Wolves defeating Spurs during their most recent match back on Feb. 13 by a score of 2-0.
Antonio Conte’s side has made several key upgrades over the summer, including Richarlison and Ivan Perišić. However, neither player has yet to make a significant impact due to various reasons (suspension/fitness). That said, Tottenham looks to have an edge this season, which may push them to a different level.
Expect a challenging match between the two clubs, but do not be surprised if Spurs light up the scoreboard.
Expect a low total score – likely a clean sheet for Lloris
Despite finishing 10th in the table, Wolves ranked 17th in the Premier League last season for goals scored with 38 goals and a minus-5 goal differential.
Wolverhampton manager Bruno Lage has been unable to translate his attack-minded approach into results, despite a £50m investment into the roster this summer.
Through two fixtures, Wolves have earned 60% possession against Leeds United and Fulham, but have only been able to convert one goal, with only one shot on target during their most recent match.
Over the last 365 days, Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris ranks in the 91st percentile among top European leagues in clean sheets and should have an easy time keeping Wolverhampton off the scoreboard.
On the other hand, Wolves allowed the fifth-fewest goals in the EPL last season, just behind Tottenham. As talented as the Spurs' offense is, this will likely be a competitive match.
Son will stand out for Spurs
After tying Mohamed Salah to win the Golden Boot last season, Heung-Min Son has yet to score a goal through two matches.
The 30-year-old did record an assist during Tottenham’s opening week victory over Southampton, but was completely shut down by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
It is difficult to imagine Son being held scoreless once again, especially at home. So expect the Spurs forward to get his season going properly, even against a stingy Wolves defense.
Tottenham vs Wolverhampton Prediction
Tottenham 2-0 Wolverhampton
The Spurs offense was held in check by a perfect defensive press by Chelsea on the road, and they were still able to put two goals on the board.
Tottenham should have a nice boost from their home crowd against Wolverhampton, allowing them to cruise to an easy victory.
