Wolves vs Everton – A late resurgence can see Wolves get result

| 08.04.2011

Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off could be a key fixture in the race to avoid relegation as Wolverhampton Wanderers host Everton at Molineux.

Wolves are many people’s pick to stay up this season but Mick McCarthy’s side find themselves second from bottom and are joint third-favourites with West Ham at 5/4 to be relegated.

Match Odds

Five times these two have met in the Premier League and both sides have one win apiece to their name.

The simple math will tell you that three of those five ended in draws – three consecutive draws in fact – and however you look at it, this match looks certain to end level and the 23/10 for the draw looks the pick of the market.

Wolves have the strongest home record of the teams fighting for relegation and as home wins become crucial, McCarthy will be hoping his side can continue to replicate their form and should they do so, Wolves are the more likely to edge it and they are 6/4.

Total Goals

It’s sure to be a tense and tight affair at Molineux and backing under 2.5 goals at 8/11 looks a very strong bet.

If Wolves are to win a 1-0 result seems the most likely and is 7/1 but with Everton unbeaten in their last five with the draws – the 0-0 at 8/1 and the 1-1 at 11/2 are the favoured results to back.

All four of Wolves’ Premier League goals against Everton have come in the second half while six of Everton’s last eight goals have come between the 30th and 40th minute.

Backing Everton to be winning at half-time with the draw at full-time is a nice little earner at 14/1 while Wolves are 13/2 to come from behind and salvage a draw.

A £20 stake on Wolves and Everton finishing 1-1 would return £130. Take advantage of Ladbrokes Premier League odds.
