Wolves 8/13 to beat Bournemouth in Wednesday’s Premier League showdown

Competition: Premier League

Market: Wolves win

Odds: 8/13 @ Bet 365

Still dreaming of securing a top-four finish this season, Wolves will welcome relegation scrappers Bournemouth to an empty Molineux on Wednesday evening.

Starting with the hosts, putting on a second-half clinic and picking up what was a routine 2-0 win away at West Ham on Saturday evening, Wolves still have their sights set on a late top-four charge. Still seen as a real dark horse in this year’s Europa League after grabbing what could be a crucial away goal at Olympiakos prior to the break, the Oranges are unbeaten in their last Premier League outings and the mood in their camp only continues to rise. Along with watching leading marksman Raul Jiminez extend on what has been another stellar year in the Midlands, Head Coach Nuno Espírito Santo will be most impressed by his side’s continued performances at the other end of the pitch. Landing another clean sheet at the London Stadium over the weekend, Wolves have now recorded five clean sheets on their six-match unbeaten run.

As for the visitors, while the mood in Wolves’ camp will be on a high after their return from the break, Bournemouth once again put in a torrid display on the South Coast. Hit with a 2-0 defeat at home against Crystal Palace and still unable to find a route out of the bottom-three, Eddie Howe’s strugglers have now collected just a single top-flight point over their last five appearances. Showing some glaring issues at the back either side of the break, there is no doubt that the Cherries should be most concerned by their continued problems on the road. Losing their last six straight Premier League matches away from the Vitality, a run highlighted by a woeful 4-0 drumming against fellow scrappers West Ham on New Year’s Day, Bournemouth could be in for another long evening.
