- Wolverhampton v West Brom (Over/Under - Under 2.5)
- Wolverhampton v West Brom (Anytime Goalscorer - Neto, P)
It is a West Midlands Derby on Saturday at lunchtime as Wolverhampton Wanderers host West Brom at Molineux. It is a massive fixture for both teams and being a derby makes it even more important. West Brom are on a two-match losing streak under Sam Allardyce who took over for Slaven Bilic in December. The job of saving the Baggies from the drop is far more difficult than Allardyce expected. There are six points separating West Brom from safety going into the weekend.
Wolverhampton Wanderers are coming off of a midweek 2-1 loss to Everton. After pulling the game back to level terms, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side allowed a late goal and fell to defeat. Wolverhampton Wanderers are winless in their last five matches in the league and Saturday’s match is a six-point affair for both sides.
Wolves are on 22 points from 54 possible. The Old Gold are just seven points off of the European places as it stands. But right now, Santo will be merely focused on getting points and moving away from the relegation zone. Wolverhampton Wanderers are 11 points above the bottom three.
West Brom have won just once in 17 attempts this season. They are struggling and have been overmatched all season long. The Baggies have conceded nine goals and scored zero over their last two matches in the Premier League. Can they shock Wolves in the derby?
Wolves vs West Brom Betting Odds
Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Brom have not met since the 2011-12 Premier League season. The history between these clubs will play no part in the outcome of the match on Saturday. What could play a part is Wolverhampton Wanderers home form. They have posted a 3W-3D-3L record at Molineux scoring 10 goals and allowing 10 to opponents.
Although the team are struggling for wins at the moment, they go into the match on Saturday as heavy favourite to win according to leading sportsbooks. Wolverhampton Wanderers are at odds of 1/2 to win against West Brom at full-time this weekend. Wolves are unbeaten in four of their last six home matches in the Premier League. They also claimed an FA Cup third round 1-0 win versus Crystal Palace last weekend.
West Brom are one of two teams in the Premier League not to win on the road. They have posted a dismal 0W-3D-6L record away from the Hawthorns in 2020-21. The good news for Allardyce is that his side drew their last two league matches against Manchester City and Liverpool.
The Baggies are underdogs to win at full-time on Saturday at odds of 15/2. The West Midlands rivals are at odds of 16/5 to finish the 90-minute match in a draw. West Brom may not be winning football matches but they have drawn back-to-back road fixtures.
Wolves vs West Brom Team News
Santo is likely to be without six players for the match on Saturday at Molineux. Centre-back Willy Boly is nursing a thigh injury and could return to the squad – although he is considered a doubt as it stands. The news isn’t good for Adama Traore who is ruled out with a hamstring strain. Traore’s thunderous strike against Crystal Palace sent Wolves into the fourth round of the FA Cup.
Fernando Marcal is ruled out once more due to a groin strain. His time at Molineux has not gone well since leaving Lyon in September. Daniel Podence is ruled out with a calf injury while long-term absentees Raul Jimenez and Jonn Otto are both ruled out. According to reports this week, Santo has been told there are no transfer funds available to spend this month.
Wolves have received Italian striker Patrick Cutrone back from his loan spell at Fiorentina. The striker left this time last season after finding chances few and far between at Molineux. With Jimenez out of action long-term, Cutrone could step in and score the goals needed for the team.
Allardyce has four names on his injury list and they are names of player that have been on the sidelines for some time. Conor Townsend and Karlan Grant are both expected to miss out on the match through their respective injuries. Hal Robson-Kanu is a doubt as he continues to recover from an arm operation. Meanwhile, Conor Gallagher is ruled out due to suspension after accumulating five yellow cards.
Wolves vs West Ham Prediction
Both teams to score: NO @ 13/20 - BET NOW
West Brom have failed to win a game on the road this season and goals are a struggle. They have scored just six times in eight matches. While they drew their last two road games by 1-1 scorelines respectively against Manchester City and Liverpool, West Brom did lose their last two fixtures overall in the league. The Baggies were outscored 9-0 by Leeds United and Arsenal. Wolves are scoring goals in the league.
Pedro Neto to score anytime @ 7/4 - BET NOW
With Jimenez out of action, Wolverhampton Wanderers are struggling to get goals. Yes, they are scoring but not enough goals to win matches. Pedro Neto has been Santo’s typical choice to play in attack. Cutrone could come into the side for the match, but Santo could choose Neto to lead the line from the start. Neto has four goals in 18 appearances.
Under 2.5 goals scored @ 8/11 - BET NOW
Two low-scoring teams should struggle to get goals in this match on Saturday. West Brom’s last two matches both finished with over 2.5 goals scored, but they were played off the park by two good attacking teams. With Wolves struggling for goals without Jimenez, they should fail to get more than 2.5 goals scored.
Two of Wolverhampton Wanderers last four matches in the league finished with under 2.5 goals scored. Wolves FA Cup third round match versus Crystal Palace also ended with fewer than 2.5 goals tallied. West Brom’s season is so bad that they lost to Blackpool on penalties in the FA Cup third round.
Don’t expect them to suddenly get a win and push up the table. Wolverhampton Wanderers should get a low-scoring win and move further into midtable.
