Wolves vs Leicester in the Premier League on Feb 20. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Wolves vs Leicester in the Premier League on Feb 20. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

After picking up a well-earned win away at Tottenham on Sunday, Wolves now find themselves thrusted into the race for European football next season and with the manner in which they won last weekend, a top-seven finish is by no means out of the question.

Although such a standing will be wishful thinking for upcoming opponents Leicester and with the Foxes starting the weekend in the bottom half of the table, the best they can likely hope for is 10th place at the end of the season.

Under 2.5 Goals

With Wolves currently possessing the second meanest defence in the Premier League, that is always going to be the direction of travel for our betting tip, and it is one that will not lead to an abundance of goals at Molineux.

Especially as Wolves have not scored three times in a single Premier League game this season and although Leicester are known for being rather generous in defence, they will need to tighten up for this Midlands derby.

Which means a total of under 2.5 goals is my Sunday hunch and if you are feeling the same as me, you can back two goals or less at odds of 7/10 with bet365 - something that is well worth your weekend consideration.

Wolves Form, squad news, opinion

When you look at Wolves’ goals for and against record this season, it points to the fact that they are a largely defensive team, especially as they have both scored less than one goal on average and conceded as few on average at the other end.

However, that assumption can only be considered as a rather lazy one and when you look at the way that Bruno Lage’s team setup, their solid defence is just a by-product of great ball retention and attacking prowess.

Admittedly things have not gone all their way in attack, as just 21 goals in 23 matches would attest to. Although with that being said, it is not for the want of trying and after watching them cut Tottenham apart last Sunday, you do wonder if this could be a watershed moment.

Because with that win over Antonio Conte’s men, Wolves have thrust themselves into the European paying places and although that same Tottenham team have a game in hand over the Molineux outfit, progress in North London is by no means a given.

While when it comes to progress, that is exactly what Wolves will look to make from this Sunday onwards and after such a blistering performance some seven days before, Bruno Lage will expect the same and more against a visiting Leicester side.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Leicester, there is good news for manager Bruno Lage and that is the fact that his injury list has now shortened. Which means only the pair of Yerson Mosquera and Willy Boly are likely to be unavailable this weekend.

Leicester Form, squad news, opinion

All does not seem to be well at the King Power Stadium and with no league win from their last four outings and also the relinquishing of their status as F.A. Cup holders, the pressure is beginning to mount on the shoulders of manager Brendan Rodgers.

Pressure that the Ulsterman thought may have eased after the visit of West Ham last Sunday and with the Foxes overturning an early deficit, they found themselves 2-1 up with just seconds remaining.

However, a rather contentious goal from Craig Dawson meant that the Hammers made the trip back to London with a share of the points and left Rodgers bemoaning more bad luck for Leicester.

Then again, in football circles they say that you make your own luck and a lack of game management at the very end, is something that has once again proved to be Leicester’s undoing.

Which means the club that agonisingly missed out on Champions League football last season, is now battling to even be in the top-half of the Premier League table and this is a measure of the current decline that is taking place at Leicester.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to Wolves, Brendan Rodgers can also breathe a little easier himself and with Ricardo Pereira returning to action last Sunday, it means the defensive pair of Wesley Fofana and Jonny Evans will once again join Jamie Vardy on the treatment table.

History

When these two sides go to war, it is a battle of the Midlands and with Wolves from the West playing host to Leicester from the East this Sunday, they will look to further assert their overall dominance against the Foxes.

In terms of their overall head-to-head record, Wolves have won on 43 occasions, Leicester 40 and there have been 35 draws

About the Venue

After recent construction work, Molineux is looking rather resplendent these days and with the Wolves’ side currently being one that is upwardly mobile, its supporters are not shy when it comes to lending their support.

With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in England, it means there is no longer the need to show a Vaccine Passport before attending the ground. Which means, match tickets are the only item that is required to be produced at the time of writing.

Conclusion

When looking at the Premier League odds in the ‘without big 6’ market, it is both West Ham and Wolves that are currently at the front of the list and backing either of these two clubs would be a worthwhile bet.

However, Wolves now fancy their chances of a top-six finish and if they can get the better of Leicester on Sunday, it will only further enhance their chance of European qualification at the end of the season.
