Prediction and odds for the game: Tottenham (7/5) v Wolves (21/10)
We are backing the draw at odds of 11/5
When: Sunday 1st March 2020, Kick-off 2 PM
Where: The Molineux Stadium
On Sunday afternoon, Tottenham host Wolves at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, in a game that could be crucial in the fighting for the European spots in the Premier League.
The home side has been inconsistent this season, as the team from north London has won just three of their last eight matches in the Premier League. However, a 2-1 defeat at capital rivals Chelsea last time out ended a three-game winning run in the English top-flight. The match also ended a prolific run of form for Spurs in the Premier League, as Jose Mourinho’s team had scored at least twice in their previous three league outings.
The recent defeat at Stamford Bridge left Tottenham four points behind the fourth-place Blues, and just a point behind fifth-place Manchester United, who are in the last Champions League qualification.
Tottenham have won five of their last seven home games in the Premier League, including three of their last four outings. Spurs have also scored at least twice in all five of those recent home wins. However, without the likes of Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son, both ruled out due to injury, the home side lacks a real attacking threat.
The visitors are just a point behind the home side in the Premier League table. However, their recent form has been inconsistent. Last time out, they suffered a 3-2 defeat at Spanish team Espanyol in the Europa League last-32 second leg.
Prior to the defeat, Nuno Espirito Santo’s team were undefeated in three games in the Premier League. On the flip-side, the team from the Midlands have won just two of their last eight games in the English top-flight. The recent unbeaten run has been based on a big defensive improvement, as the team from the Midlands have kept three clean sheets in the Premier League. Prior to the good run, Wolves were without a clean sheet in the league for nine matches.
Wolves have been the definition of inconsistent on their travels in the Premier League, having won just three of their last nine away matches. They have picked up four points from their last six away games in the English top-flight with a win at Southampton and a draw at Manchester United.
Neither team have been in great form, but neither has been great of late either. Tottenham are certainly missing their injured attacking players. However, they tend to be strong on home soil. Wolves are highly unpredictable. We are backing the draw at odds of 11/5.
We can also see this game being a tight, low-scoring encounter, so we are also backing the under 2.5 goals scored.
Verdict: We are backing the draw at odds of 11/5 and/or under 2.5 goals at odds of 4/6. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
