Wolves v Manchester United betting tips: Away-day aim for Reds in Nuno’s swansong
Manchester United complete their Premier League season with a trip to Wolves whose manager Nuno Espirito Santo will leave the club after the game.
The Red Devils are 33/20 to end the campaign with victory at Molineux and 4/1 to win to nil ahead of next Wednesday’s Europa League final against Villarreal.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may wrap up some of his players in cotton wool before the game in Poland but we’re taking a look at the odds to help with your Wolves v Manchester United betting tips.
United can become only the third top-flight side in history to go through the season unbeaten away from home if they avoid defeat at Wolves.
The Red Devils can emulate Arsenal’s Invincibles from the 2001/02 campaign and Preston in 1888/89 if they get a result which is available at 1/2 in the double chance market.
United have struggled against the midlanders since they returned to the Premier League, winning just two of their eight meetings in all competitions, half of which were draws.
On to Sunday.

Wolves have failed to score in the last four clashes with United and at least one team not to find the net can be backed at 6/5 while the hosts to fire blanks again is 27/10.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have scored fewer than a goal a game on average this season and have failed to find the net 13 times – the fifth highest in the Premier League.
Solskjaer remains without injured skipper Harry Maguire, who is highly doubtful for the Europa League final with ankle ligament damage.
Midfielders Scott McTominay and Fred picked up knocks during the 1-1 draw with Fulham and are expected to be left out of the squad with the Europa League final just around the corner.
Wolves made five changes to the side that lost at Tottenham for the 1-0 defeat at Everton, including keeper John Ruddy who made only his second Premier League appearance in five years in place of Rui Patricio.
The Portuguese boss admitted he was “proud” of his players’ performance at Goodison Park so it remains to be seen whether he makes many changes for the United visit.
Edinson Cavani opened the scoring with a spectacular long-range chip against Fulham and is 9/2 to break the deadlock again, although he may be rested with next week in mind.
Bruno Fernandes is effectively out of the running to win the Golden Boot having failed to score against the Cottagers but he can be backed at 9/2 to draw first blood, just as he did in the 4-2 defeat by Liverpool.
Adama Traore looked dangerous against Everton and Wolves’ Spanish winger is 17/2 to notch the game’s first goal and 16/5 to get on the scoresheet.
Morgan Gibbs-White tested goalkeeper Jordan Pickford with a smart volley in the same game and is 9/1 to strike the first goal or 7/2 to hit the back of the net.
