Tottenham vs Wolverhampton Prediction
We should be in for a great game as Tottenham Hotspur face Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League. A match that should provide goals, what else can we expect from this one? Let’s take a look at what the stats are suggesting.
Since their defeat to Liverpool in January, Tottenham had been enjoying a good run of form. A seven game unbeaten run in all competitions followed, which included wins over Norwich, Manchester City, Southampton and Aston Villa.
However, following a home defeat to RB Leipzig in the Champions League, Spurs lost to Chelsea last time out. A win at Stamford Bridge would have seen Spurs overtake their London rivals for fourth spot. Instead, Tottenham remain four points off fourth, and only three points clear of Burnley in tenth.
Wolves have enjoyed another great season, both in the league and in Europe. Losing just once in their last nine games, Wolves have enjoyed 4-0 and 3-0 wins in their last two, the latter coming in the Premier League at the expense of bottom club Norwich.
Wolves are just a point behind their next opponents, and a win here could see them jump into fifth spot.

Of the last ten, Tottenham have won five, with Wolves picking up three victories.
Tottenham v Wolves Stats & Analysis
Heung-Min son has joined Harry Kane and Moussa Sissoko on the sidelines. It’s unlikely that any of those three will be fit in the foreseeable future. Ryan Sessegnon might make this one, though the left back faces a late fitness test.
As for Wolves, their only injury concern is Jonny Castro Otto. Otto is out with an ankle injury, and this game probably comes too soon for the Wolves man to make his return.
Tottenham’s form at home, in general, has been pretty good. Winning eight of their 13 games on home soil in the league, Spurs have scored 25 times in those games, conceding just 12.
Wolves have only won four times on the road in the league, with much of their record being made up of draws. Wolves have only lost three times away in the Premier League this season, though goals are a little harder to come by. In their 13 away games, Wolves have scored 17 goals, conceding just 15.
Tottenham v Wolves Bets
Spurs are favourites to win this one. Expect odds of around 2.30 for the home win, with Wolves priced at 3.10. The draw is priced at 3.30.
Both sides are looking to continue their push for a European place, but both sides also have their eye on their current European fixtures. Wolves are all but assured of their place in the next round of the Europa League, though Spurs will be concerned with that first leg defeat to Leipzig. Will that be a distraction for this one?
With Spurs’ injury concerns up front, coupled with their CL distraction, Wolves will fancy their chances in taking all three points here. The odds on Wolves to win at 3.30 are pretty attractive. For Wolves to win both halves, expect odds of around 13.0.
