Manchester United vs. Wolves Betting Preview
The pressure has lifted on Manchester United over the past seven days, as their race for a Champions League finish looks set to go down to the wire. United comes into this fixture after losing back-to-back games on the road, with the latest of those coming against West Ham United last weekend. Meanwhile, the Red Devils have scored just once in their previous three league matches.
However, while United’s form on the road has been miserable in recent weeks, they have remained strong at the Theatre of Dreams. At Old Trafford, United have won 24 matches across all competitions this term. They have only picked up more wins in three previous seasons, with the latest of those coming in 2010-11.
United suffered a 1-0 defeat in this exact fixture last season, but they haven’t lost back-to-back home games against the team from the Black Country since September 1961.
A lot of credit must be given to Julen Lopetegui, as he has played a significant role in Wolverhampton Wanderers’ survival effort this term. The Spanish coach took over Wolves when they were bottom of the standings, but they have since won nine games in the Premier League to move up to 13th in the table. They could rise up to eleventh with a victory this weekend.
Wolves come into this fixture on the road in excellent recent form, as they have won four of their previous six. Their most recent success was picked up against Midlands rivals Aston Villa at Molineux. Their away form remains a concern, as they have landed just two wins from 17 matches away from Wolverhampton.
One of the most damning EPL stats for this fixture from an away perspective is the fact that Wolves have lost ten of their previous eleven on the road against sides starting the day in the Champions League spots.
Manchester United vs. Wolves Betting Picks
One of the most eye-catching Manchester United vs Wolves picks would be on under 2.5 goals. The previous nine clashes between the sides have produced just nine goals, while the meetings at Old Trafford have seen three goals scored.
We also expect United to continue their excellent form at the Theatre of Dreams, but a cagey 1-0 win may be the likeliest outcome.
- Pick: Man United to win 1-0 (+750)
- Pick: Under 2.5 Goals (+130)
