Wolves vs. Tottenham Hotspur Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
12 December 2019
Sunday 15 December
Molineux – Premier League
Tottenham will be aiming to leapfrog Wolves and put pressure on their top four rivals at Molineux. Jose Mourinho’s reign has gotten off to a good start, but the hosts are always a danger.
Tottenham lost 3-1 away at Wolves last season, after winning 3-2 at home against Nuno Santo’s side a month before.
Wolves have no fresh injury worries ahead of the visit of Jose Mourinho’s side, with long term injury absentees Willy Boly and Morgan Gibbs-White the only players out.
Spurs should have midfield pair Harry Winks and Tanguy Ndombele back fit, after they missed last weekend’s defeat to Burnley.
However, Erik Lamela and Ben Davies are both still sidelined for another two weeks.
Wolves vs. Tottenham Preview and Predictions
Wolves’ impressive recent form has seen them rise up the Premier League table, and they host Tottenham on the back of an 11-game unbeaten run in league action.
Santo’s side will be confident of a positive result, despite Spurs brushing Burnley aside with a 5-0 win last weekend.
That win at home to Burnley has put Mourinho’s side back on track, following defeat to Manchester United in their previous game.
Mourinho’s time with the club is still in a developmental stage, and the trip to the West Midlands will eb a real test for them.
Spurs look stronger on paper, but Wolves’ form and home advantage make this one a very tough game to call, and a draw, priced at 2.5, looks a good option.
Both teams have strong attacking units, with Spurs scoring 12 goals in the four Premier League games since Mourinho came in, and Wolves scoring seven in four in the league.
With that in mind, a BTTS bet comes in at 0.7 for this game.
A 1-1 draw at 6.5
Neither side can really afford to drop points after a strong run of recent form, but with Mourinho still seething from that defeat at Old Trafford, it is tough to see them losing here.
Harry Kane to score first at 4.5
Kane has looked back to his best in recent weeks, with three in four league games under Mourinho and he has a good record against Santo’s side after scoring against them in both games last season.
