Betting tips Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Leicester City

Leicester to show Foxes more cunning than Wolves

Wolves host Leicester in the Premier League’s marquee match on Friday. With a lot to play for, who will triumph at Molineux? Have a read of our preview here:

Wolves need three points

It is hard to point to a club that has come so far in such a short space of time compared to Wolves. The rise, funded by Chinese money, has seen this historic outfit climb into the top-flight and establish themselves as the Black Country’s biggest side.

They have a squad full of talent and can still realistically finish in the top-four this season even though a run of one win in their last six has made that harder.

The six-point gap between themselves and Chelsea is certainly not insurmountable, but they will need something on Friday as Leicester, currently in third place, roll into town.

Top scorer Raul Jimenez has netted 11 times in the Premier League this season and the Mexican striker will be tough to handle for the Foxes defenders.

He has also notched up an impressive six assists just to highlight how his play helps bring in teammates who can also take advantage of his hold-up play.

Adama Traore is the assist leader at Wolves with seven and his form has been garnering praise from the likes of Jurgen Klopp in recent weeks.

This promises to be an exciting match and should live up to billing.

Leicester not panicking after wobble

Leicester have hit a patchy run of form, which is hardly surprising given their excellent start to the season.

Defeats against Southampton and Burnley brought a bit of realism back to a fanbase who had been spoiled by some sumptuous football this season, but no one panicked. Three points against West Ham and an excellent 2-2 draw at the King Power against Chelsea have given Brendan Rodgers’ side a decent 12-point cushion over those chasing their top-four berth.

In fairness, it is hard to see Leicester finishing lower than third thanks to another fantastic campaign from Jamie Vardy, top scorer with 17 goals, 10 more than any other teammate.

James Maddison and Harvey Barnes have formed an exciting, creative partnership, with nine assists between them and Wilfred Ndidi marshals the midfield brilliantly.

This is a team who deserve all the success they have enjoyed this season, and they should continue to surprise in 2020.

Wolves vs Leicester betting tip

Wolves are an excellent team but Leicester are where they are for a reason. Brendan Rodgers has his side playing excellent football and despite a slight slump in form we are backing the Foxes to win this one at odds of 15/8 with Betway.
