Prediction and odds for the game: Fulham (7/5) vs Wolves (11/5)
We are backing the draw at odds of 21/10
When: Friday, 9th April 2021, Kick-off 20:00
Where: Craven Cottage
On Friday night, Fulham host Wolves at Craven Cottage, as the home team looks for potentially vital points in the fight for Premier League survival.
The Cottagers have given themselves a fighting chance in recent months of beating the drop. In fact, a win in this clash would move Scott Parker’s team above 17th place Newcastle and out of the drop zone. However, the Magpies have a game in hand, so still have a slight advantage.
The problem for Fulham is that their recent league form has not been great, as they have been in poor form in recent weeks. The Cottagers have lost four of their last five matches in the Premier League while winning just once in their last six league outings too.
Parker’s team have been woeful on home soil of late, winning just once in their previous 11 top-flight matches at Craven Cottage. To make matters worse, they have also lost six of their last eight matches in the Premier League, while failing to score in four of their last six home league games.
The visitors are enduring a difficult season after a few highly promising top-flight campaigns in the English top-flight. Nuno Espirito Santo’s team are currently 14th place in the table, just nine points clear of their relegation-threatened hosts in the English top-flight.
Wolves recent league form befits that of a team in their current position, as they head into this clash on the back of a five-game winless run in the Premier League. Last time out, they suffered a 3-2 home defeat by Champions League-chasing West Ham.
Without injured star striker Raul Jimenez, the visitors have struggled for goals this season. Only four teams in the top-flight have scored fewer goals than the side from the Midlands this season.
Considering their poor campaign, it will come as little surprise that the visitors have a poor recent away record in the Premier League this season. They have won just once in their last ten matches on their travels in the English top-flight.
One positive for Wolves is that they have won seven of the last ten meetings with Fulham in all competitions, having suffered just one defeat.
Both teams have been struggling for any sort of form of late in the Premier League. This game has draw written all over it, so that’s what we are backing. The other bet we are backing is under 2.5 goals scored, as both teams have also been impotent in front of goal this season.
Verdict: We are backing the draw at odds of 21/10 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 8/15. (All odds are taken from Bet365)[geosnippet id=3620]
