Kick-off: 1400, 01/03/2020
Stadium: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Tottenham and Wolves have produced three entertaining encounters since Wanderers secured promotion to the Premier League and we’re hoping for another on Sunday.
Spurs have prevailed 3-2 and 2-1 when visiting Molineux, while the midlands outfit enjoyed a 3-1 victory in last season’s clash at this venue.
Punters can get 91/100 for both teams to score again here and that is our initial Tottenham vs Wolves prediction.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham have suffered a couple of tough defeats since Son Heung-min joined Harry Kane on the casualty list.
A 1-0 Champions League loss to RB Leipzig on home turf was followed by a 2-1 reversal at Chelsea, leaving Spurs four points off a top-four place.
However, Jose Mourinho refused to criticise his players, instead hitting out at a hectic schedule, with those games quickly following a 3-2 triumph at Aston Villa.
“We are trying to do things so very difficult for us,” said the manager. “Nothing, nothing at all to criticise my players. Nothing at all. Exactly the opposite.”
Coping without Kane and Son was always going to be difficult, but the hope is that a full week between fixtures will now allow Mourinho to prepare better for this test.
Steven Bergwijn has looked lively since joining in January and Erik Lamela should benefit from eight days off after playing through pain as a substitute at Stamford Bridge.
Dele Alli was another to come off the bench in that game who can contribute more up front, while Lucas Moura has scored in two of his three appearances versus Wolves.
Looking at the Tottenham vs Wolves odds, we reckon 23/20 for over 2.5 goals in this match is good value.
Last Tottenham line-up: Lloris, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Davies, Tanganga, Winks, Lo Celso, Moura, NDombele, Bergwijn.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves have been even busier than Spurs this season due to their Europa League exploits, but Thursday’s trip to Espanyol was made easier by winning the first leg 4-0.
In the Premier League, Wanderers closed to within a point of Tottenham when easing to a 3-0 home victory over Norwich.
Diogo Jota continued his recent hot streak by hitting a double, before the ever-reliable Raul Jimenez netted his 12th top-flight goal of the season.
Nuno Espirito Santo admits having such an arduous schedule has been demanding, but insists the hunger is there to keep going.
He said: “The way they recover, the way they respect themselves, the way the staff dedicates, we don’t have days off.
“We are always preparing ourselves to compete. This is how we want to compete, and the difficulty is to sustain it, so it requires a lot of hard work, and every day is harder.
“But it’s our job. We embrace the challenge!”
One issue which will concern Nuno, though, is how Wanderers have struggled to break down better sides early on, as they haven’t scored against a top-half team before the interval in 13 attempts.
That makes 9/5 for the visitors to score more times in the second period than the first worth adding to our Tottenham vs Wolves betting tips.
Last Wolves EPL line-up: Rui Patricio, Doherty, Boly, Coady, Jonny, Neves, Jota, Saiss, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Jimenez.
Chelsea 2-1 TOTTENHAM – Antonio Rudiger (og)
WOLVES 3-0 Norwich – Diogo Jota (2), Raul Jimenez
Head-to-head: Wolves 1-2 Tottenham, Tottenham 1-3 Wolves, Wolves 2-3 Tottenham
