Liverpool have claimed five straight wins over Wolves in Premier League meetings and get the nod to extend that sequence at Molineux on Monday night.
The Reds put a poor run in this competition behind them with Tuesday’s Champions League victory over RB Leipzig and should be too strong if reproducing that form.
Mohamed Salah netted in midweek and still heads the domestic Golden Boot table, so 13/10 for him to score in an away win is our first Wolves vs Liverpool prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
After finishing seventh for the past two seasons, Wolves have slipped down into mid-table mediocity this term.
Losing leading marksman Raul Jimenez to injury was a crushing blow and they have struggled to recover, having also sold off key men Matt Doherty and Diogo Jota.
High-priced teenager Fabio Silva does not seem ready for this level and has just two league goals, against Burnley and West Brom.
Loan signing Willian Jose has yet to break his duck in nine outings following a 0-0 draw at Aston Villa last time out.
Pedro Neto told the club website: “We are doing very well, but we are trying to improve our game.
“I think the improvement of the team and the improvement of the players comes individually, but we still have to keep going.”
Wanderers rode their luck in the first half at Villa, as Ollie Watkins and Ezri Konsa hit the bar.
Romain Saiss should have won the game in a better second period but lifted a shot over from point-blank range after Conor Coady’s header hit the post.
A slow start here could prove more costly and 7/4 for the Reds to lead at half-time and full-time appeals from the Wolves vs Liverpool odds.
Last Wolves line-up: Rui Patricio, Coady, Jonny, Semedo, Neves, Saiss, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Neto, Willian Jose, Traore.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
It is hard to fathom why Liverpool have lost six of seven top-flight fixtures since securing impressive 3-1 wins at Tottenham and West Ham.
Jurgen Klopp must just keep his fingers crossed that the form shown in a couple of 2-0 triumphs over RB Leipzig can be transferred to this competition.
Salah and Sadio Mane grabbed the midweek goals in Budapest, but the return of Fabinho to a midfield holding position was another significant feature.
His presence gave Liverpool a far more comfortable look and freed up Thiago Alcantara to control play in this crucial area.
The Reds currently sit eighth in the table, seven points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, but still have time to climb back up into the Champions League spots.
“We know that Monday at Wolves is a different kind of game, but if we play as good as we played, then it will be tough for Wolves, that’s clear,” said Klopp.
“We played a really good first half but we didn’t score with really big chances. The game was a little bit like a summary of our season.
“But then we had the second half and used it there, that’s all fine…that (win) can help and we can see on Monday how much.”
Liverpool are unlikely to run riot, as they did when crushing Wanderers 4-0 at Anfield in early December.
However, we do expect them to enjoy a smooth success against goal-shy opponents, so 15/2 for a 2-0 away victory is added to our Wolves vs Liverpool betting tips.
Last Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Kabak, Robertson, Phillips, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Thiago, Jota, Mane, Salah.
Aston Villa 0-0 WOLVES
LIVERPOOL 2-0 RB Leipzig – Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane
Head-to-head: Liverpool 4-0 Wolves, Wolves 1-2 Liverpool, Liverpool 1-0 Wolves, Liverpool 2-0 Wolves, Wolves 2-1 Liverpool
