Wolves vs Everton Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Sunday, 12 July 2020. Scheduled kick-off 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET at the Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton).
After conceding a late set-piece goal at the Brammall Lane, Wolves lost ground in Europa League qualification race with the Sheffield United. The gap between the two teams is now reduced to a single point.
The Wanderers remain 6th in the table after the defeat with Manchester United moving 6 points clear after their rout at Villa Park.
Meantime, the trio of Arsenal Spurs and Burnley stay behind at a 3-point gap to set up and excellent race for two Europa League spots.
On the other hand, Everton managed to hold on to the 11th spot on the table after their 1-1 stalemate with Southampton with 45 points keeping them mathematically in the Europa League qualification race.
However, inconsistent away form coupled with a misfiring attacking front give them little hope to achieve this with 4 matches to go in the season.
Even though the Toffees did fairly well since restart, but as mentioned earlier their away credentials remain poor and this is a team that suffered 10 defeats from 17 road trips this season.
On the background, three points are extremely important for Wolves, but Everton will be aiming to spoil the party.
Wolves vs Everton Head-to-head
Earlier this season, Everton won 3-2 at the Goodison Park in a thriller settled by 80th minute goal by Richarlison.
Both their Premier League matches last season were also filled with goals as Wolves snatched a 3-1 win at the Goodison after their duel at Molineux Stadium ended in a 2-2 stalemate.
So, their last 3 h2h meetings saw both teams scoring and Over 3.5 goals.
Also, if you go back a few years, you can see 7 of their last 10 meetings saw btts, while 5 of the last 6 recorded 3 or more goals.
At the Molineux, 3 of their most recent 4 meetings are stalemates, while Everton bagged a convincing 3-0 win in 2011.
Wolves vs Everton Prediction
Both teams were disappointing in the previous two fixtures and therefore improvements are expected at Wolverhampton this Sunday.
We saw this fixture generally guarantee goals, again, the trend is against either side’s recent credentials.
This is a good enough reason to overlook over 2.5 goals in the match and settle for the over 1.5 mark instead. It is a small price with odds in the region of 1.50 with most bookies, but we will avoid considerable risk.
Regarding match result, Wolves could snatch all three points here, since they are much better at home while Everton have done nothing so far to convince that they can be a threat in these kinds of fixtures.
Yet, I will not back the outright home win with full confidence as we are seeing too many surprise results and fatigue is going to play a big role here. Therefore, a draw no bet or double chance seems like the safe options, but we are left with the former for decent returns.
