Wolves took four points off Manchester United in the Premier League last season and knocked them out of the FA Cup, so they must be rated a value bet as underdogs as they welcome the red devils to Molineux on Monday evening, 19th of August.
Wolverhampton Wanderers Betting Tips
Wolves were left to rue Leander Dendoncker’s second-half strike being ruled out by VAR when drawing 0-0 in a cagey contest at Leicester. Nuno Espirito Santo was happy with his side’s efforts though, especially after coming off a round trip of 6,370 miles to Armenia in the Europa League. Wanderers will be fresher for this contest after facing FC Pyunik in the second leg at home and having an extra day to recover.
Their slick passing and movement should again cause United problems this season, especially with Paul Pogba still happy to stroll around the centre of the park and Scott McTominay and Andreas Pereira short of experience. Nuno Espirito Santo was able to rotate the team in their Europa League second leg in midweek, so he can revert to his regulars in this game.
Wolves had an outstanding record against the top six teams last season and they will be keen to continue that in front of their own fans. They welcome a Man Utd side buoyed by their opening win, but Wolves will not be daunted and they are capable of taking at least a point if not all three at home.
The odds for Wolves to win are at 11/5 and for both teams to score and Wolves to win is at tasty odds of 24/5. Diogo Jota to open the scoring is added to our Wolves vs Man Utd betting tips after he netted in both games against the Red Devils here last season and currently at 11/2 to do that again in this game.
The Red Devils received plenty of praise for their big win over Chelsea on the opening weekend but there were some worrying signs that day too. With the visitors’ new-look defence still to fully settle and their midfield looking lightweight, United still won convincingly by 4-0 against Chelsea and it must be admitted that Pogba was superb in instigating counter attacks during the second half.
With the first 2 goals from Marcus Rashford, followed by a close-range strike from Anthony Martial and a debut goal for Daniel James, Utd secured what on paper would look like an easy win. However, it could have been a much different scoreline if Chelsea had converted some of their great chances, hitting the woodwork twice and repeatedly creating clear-cut openings.
For Man Utd, Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka were positives at the back, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted they were a bit lucky and they still have work to do. The red devils have to do more than they did in their opening game against the blues if they want to get the three point out of this game against Wolves on Monday night.
The bookies odds for Utd to claim the three points is 27/20, while both teams to score and Man Utd to win is at 15/4. We’re taking the value bet of Manchester United to win with scoreline 1-3, which is at 20/1 – definitely worth trying!
