Wolves vs Everton is Sunday’s lunchtime Premier League game and it pitches together two of the most tactically astute managers in the Premier League. Nuno Santos will be reeling after two successive defeats have ended his Champions League aspirations, but he needs to get his team focused again quickly or Wolves could even end up missing-out on a place in the Europa League.
Carlo Ancelotti has no such worries, as Everton require too many good teams to drop points for them to have any chance of a Europa League place. However, having taken Everton from the brink of relegation when he arrived, Ancelotti will be hoping to get Everton in the top-half of the table before the end of the season. There’s every chance that this will be a low-scoring game, but over 3.5 goals is our value tip for Wolves vs Everton.
On recent form, it is easier to build a case for this being a dull low-scoring affair between two sides that have recently kept things tighter than the Covid-19 lockdown. There have been less than 2.5 goals in the last five matches Wolves have played, while four of Everton’s last five matches have also produced that result. The problem is the bookies are taking no chances on this been a low-scoring game and offer just 1/2 (1.50) about there being less than 2.5 goals.
The bookies may have got it right but, for whatever reason, the last three matches between Wolves and Everton have all produced more than 3.5 goals. Everton won 3-2 at Goodison Park in September, while Wolves won 3-1 at Goodison in February. Last season’s match at Molineux also ended 2-2.
That’s why it could be worth taking a chance that these two teams will repeat their recent form against each other, with more than 3.5 goals being a tasty 4/1 (5.00) and slightly bigger in places.
