Chelsea vs Wolves Betting Tips
The Premier League will see another round of midweek fixtures as matchday 20 kicks off on Tuesday. Chelsea won at the weekend in the FA Cup fourth round thanks to a hat-trick from Tammy Abraham. While Frank Lampard’s team were thriving in the FA Cup against lower league competition, they have struggled in the Premier League. Ultimately, this poor league form is what cost Lampard his job at Chelsea. The Blues are ninth in the league and have won just once in their last five matches.
Former PSG and Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel is expected to take over from Frank Lampard as Chelsea look to get their season back on track.
Eyes will be on the German to see if he can get the likes of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz performing at the level anticipated when they made their big money moves from the Bundesliga in the summer.

On Wednesday night, Wolverhampton Wanderers will visit Stamford Bridge seeking to do the double over Chelsea. Wolves won in early December against Chelsea at Molineux after coming from one goal down to win in second half stoppage time, 2-1.
Wolverhampton Wanderers are 14th in the Premier League with 22 points from 57 on offer. Nuno Santo Espirito’s team are struggling but help may be on the way. The club signed Real Sociedad forward Willian Jose over the weekend to ease their goal scoring problems. Willian will most likely play on Wednesday night.
Santo’s team lost their last two matches in the league, falling to Everton 2-1 and West Brom 3-2. The Black Country team won at the weekend against Chorley in the FA Cup fourth round thanks to a Vitinha goal. Both managers will hope their respective team can translate their FA Cup form over to the league.
Chelsea vs Wolves Betting Odds
Chelsea took seven points from their last 18 on offer. They won just twice in their last six matches with only bottom side Sheffield United losing more in their last eight matches in the Premier League.
The good news for new boss Tuchel is that the Blues have been good at home this season. Although they are winless in back-to-back home matches, Chelsea have taken 15 points from 27 overall at home this campaign. They have outscored opponents 19-11 on their own turf. Chelsea are at odds of 12/19 to win at full-time versus Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Wolverhampton Wanderers are at the bottom of the form table. They took just two points from their last 18 on offer. Goals have dried up since the loss of Raul Jimenez to a devastating head/skull injury. The arrive of Willian – who was wanted by other Premier League clubs – should ease the goal scoring issues.
The Old Gold are winless in four straight road matches with three of those ending in losses. They have been outscored 16-9 on their travels collecting just 10 points from 27 possible. Wolves are at odds of 19/4 to defeat Chelsea at full-time. Wolves are unbeaten in three of the last five league matches against Chelsea with two of those fixtures ending in wins.
Chelsea vs Wolves Team News
Tuchel will have a big decision to make on Wednesday night in attack. Tammy Abraham scored a hat-trick for Chelsea versus Luton Town in the FA Cup fourth round. Abraham has the hot hand while teammates such as Kai Havertz and Timo Werner continue to underperform. Olivier Giroud is back from injury and was playing well before suffering a slight problem. Chelsea’s established players are the ones scoring goals and playing while their offseason, high-priced signings are not.
Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante is the only player currently sidelined with injury. He is nursing a thigh problem and is a doubt for the match in midweek. Kante could return at the weekend versus Burnley.
Santo is likely to be without four players. Of course, he is without long-term absentees Raul Jimenez and Jonny Otto. Forward Daniel Podence is a doubt due to a calf strain while Fernando Marcal is still ruled with a groin strain.
Willian joined Wolverhampton Wanderers from Real Sociedad where he had bagged six goals in 21 matches in all competitions. Willian was a part of a Real Sociedad team that reached the Copa del Rey Final last season. The deal is just a loan move for the time being to help Wolves’ goal scoring problems.
Chelsea vs Wolves Prediction
Both teams to score: YES @ 19/20 - BET NOW
Four of the last five Premier League matches between Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers ended with both teams scoring. Their match at Molineux in December was a tale of two halves as Chelsea outplayed Wolves in the first half only to capitulate in the second period, losing 2-1. Chelsea won versus Wolverhampton Wanderers in their last match at Stamford Bridge. It is the only time these teams finished without both scoring in their last five league matches.
Tammy Abraham to score anytime @ 13/10 - BET NOW
Abraham goes into the weekend following a three-goal game in the FA Cup fourth round. Of course, Chelsea won against lower league opposition and Wolves’ defence should offer more resistance to the Blues. Abraham has 11 goals in 25 appearances this season for Chelsea. Six of those goals have come in the Premier League.
Over 2.5 goals scored @ 91/100 - BET NOW
December’s match at Molineux was a thriller between Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers. The game looked destined for a draw until Pedro Neto hit on the counter to score the winner for Wolverhampton Wanderers at the death. Wolves have played well against Chelsea in their last five league matches. The problem is that Wolverhampton Wanderers are struggling to get goals this season.
Santo’s team are 10 points above the relegation zone going into the midweek fixture at Stamford Bridge. He will be hopeful that his team can get another win – or at least a draw – to separate them further from the bottom three.
Chelsea are four points off of the top five. With Tottenham playing Liverpool in midweek, the Blues could make up some space on the top five if Spurs lose to the Reds once more. Although Chelsea lost to Wolverhampton Wanderers earlier this season, they should be good enough to get a win on Wednesday night and inch closer to the top five.
