Wolves v Leeds United betting tips – Wolves looking to lift themselves from mid-table
We expected Wolves to be amongst the teams fighting for promotion. They're leaving it rather late!
December 16th, 2015
Wolverhampton Wanderers are the sort of team who most pundits would have been tipping for promotion this season, however they aren’t looking too comfortable at the moment with nine points separating them from the play-off places.
They sit on 25 points with seven draws and six victories and are nine points behind Ipswich Town as they head into a hectic period in which they will be playing five matches in just fifteen days, during which their season could be defined.
Their recent form has seen Wolves triumph in just one of their last six Championship outings, all but one of the others ending in draws with their last defeat being away to Bristol City early last month. A Wolverhampton Wanderers win on Thursday evening is Evens with Bet365.
Things are slightly more serious for Leeds United who desperately need the points on Thursday evening to ensure that they don’t become embroiled into a battle against relegation. The Whites are just two points behind Wolves as things stand but they are 18th in the Championship table with five wins and eight draws to their name, leaving them just five points above the danger zone.
Their recent league form has hardly been any better with two wins and a single draw in their last five outings and they head into this encounter on the back of a 0-0 draw at Charlton Athletic on Saturday afternoon.
Wolves will be without the services of Kortney Hause and Nouha Dicko, however Benik Afobe will likely make an appearance in the starting line-up as he looks to add to his season goal-tally of seven. Back Benik Afobe to score anytime at 7/4 with Winner.com
This should prove to be an entertaining clash between two sides who will be desperate to move closer to the play-offs, however we’ll be going with the home side on this occasion. Our betting tip is Benik Afobe to score anytime in a Wolves victory at 3/1 with SkyBet.
