Wolves vs Sheffield

Wolverhampton will look to build on a thrilling 2-1 win over Tottenham when they take on Sheffield United in the Premier League round 26. The Wolves quickly bounced back from a 2-0 loss to Brentford, but they do not want to stop now. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Brazil midfielder Joao Gomes, who scored a brace against Spurs, while Matheus Cunha remains on the sidelines with injury.

The Blades, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom with only 13 points on their account. The rock-bottom side experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-0 loss to Brighton and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Wolverhampton’s party at Molineux Stadium. To make things even more difficult for the relegation strugglers, defender Mason Holgate is banned for the match.

Outright Betting

Despite losing their last two Premier League home games, Wolves are comfortable 4/9 favourites on QQjili to get back to winning ways at Molineux.

One of Sheffield United’s three Premier League wins this season came against Wolves but the Blades are big underdogs to repeat the trick at 6/1 (JBet88) while the draw is an unfancied 15/4 (JBet888).

Betting Angles

Wolves are fair 4/9 favourites here but we can back the hosts to overcome a -1 hurdle on the Asian Handicap at 4/5 (KKjili) and that looks like a worthy boost in price.

This selection means if the hosts prevail by two or more goals we will be paid out, if they win by a solitary strike then stakes are returned, and that should give us a good run for our money.

Wolves will be buoyed by last week’s 2-1 at Tottenham and they should put another nail in Sheffield United’s relegation coffin on Sunday.

Gary O’Neil’s side have already beaten the likes of Man City, Tottenham and Chelsea at Molineux this season, not to mention they have overcome a -1 hurdle in three of their last four top-flight victories.

It’s also worth pointing out that a sizeable 12 of Sheffield United’s 18 Premier League defeats this season have been by a margin of two goals or more.

With all that in mind, backing Wolves with a -1 start on the Asian Handicap on Sunday seems like a sensible solution at 4/5 with WJpeso casino.

I’ll also opt for a player-based selection by siding with Pedro Neto in the To Score or Assist market at 4/5 with PaddyPower.

The Wolves talisman has racked up 11 goal involvements in 16 Premier League appearances this season and a home game with hapless Sheffield United looks like a prime opportunity to add to that tally.

Recent Meetings

One of Sheffield United’s three wins in this term of the Premier League has come just against Wolves. It was a 2-1 success in November last year at Bramall Lane.

Wolves had previously been on a three-win streak in the matches against the Blades.

Four of the last six H2H encounters between these rivals finished with fewer than three goals scored.

Wolves vs Sheffield United Prediction

The gulf in quality between Sheffield United and the rest of the league is significant. When you add that Wolves will come into this in high spirits after a big win in North London, you can only see one scenario happening on Sunday afternoon at Molineux Stadium. Wolves have generally done very well of late. They lost just two of the previous eleven outings across competitions. Gary O’Neil’s men scored two or more goals in four of the last five affairs. We expect the hosts to feast on Sunday and we’ll back them to beat Sheffield United by two or more goals difference at the 2.30 odds.

Hee-Chan Hwang returned to Wolves’ starting lineup last Saturday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The South Korean attacker tops his team’s goal-scoring charts with 10 goals to his name this season. He also takes penalties in the absence of injured Matheus Cunha. We see huge value in backing Hee-Chan Hwang to score anytime past the worst defence in the Premier League at the 2.62 odds.
