Wolves v Leeds United Betting Tips and Bet Preview

Wolves welcome Leeds United on Thursday in what looks like a winnable fixture for the home side, but they’ll have to be weary of a Leeds side who have actually only lost two of their 10 away fixtures this season, a run which includes beating Derby at the iPro Stadium. The game will kick off at 7.45PM on Sky Sports One.

The home side are favourites to win the tie at even money with Bet365, whilst the draw is available at 3.50. Leeds can be backed at a price of 4.20 also with Bet365, but the visitors haven’t won here in 15 attempts dating all the way back to 1973.

Interestingly, the sides are evenly split in the head to head, with both winning 26 games and the remaining 15 being drawn. The home side have lost on just 15 occassions over the 67 games played between the two sides.

Wolves have won seven of the last nine games in which they’ve welcome Leeds to Molineux, but their current overall form is something to consider. They’ve won just twice in 10 games, even losing to strugglers Bristol City.

Leeds have managed three wins in that time and their better form has come on the road. The +0.5AH has seen Leeds cover nine times in 11 away games, whilst Wolves have been favourites in the vast majority of home games.

The last three games on this ground have been drawn 1-1 or 0-0, and Leeds come in to this game on the back of a 0-0 draw with Charlton. United looked a lot more resolute and goals shouldn’t be free flowing in this game.

That said – whenever Leeds United face Adam Le Fondre, late goals can be expected. The last came in a late, late 1-0 win for Reading at the Madjeski two seasons ago, whilst grabbing a late brace last season. Over the seasons Le Fondre has no shortage of injury time memories against the Whites.

The pressure will be more on Leeds United than Wolves on Thursday, so it’ll be interesting to see how the two sides react. Wolves have shown plenty of signs that a run of form is immiminent if they start finding the net, whilst Steve Evans will want to pull Leeds out of 18th place. It may be early in the season still, but job contracts don’t go very far at Elland Road.

Given that Wolves have drawn four of their last five and haven’t quite found that winning formula, I think a draw is a fair expectation here. Leeds have looked much better on the road and despite Wolves dominance in this fixture, Leeds have two growing threats in Wood and Antenucci that continue to score amongst the chaos, and I’d expect one of them to do so again here.

Back the draw at 3.50 with Bet365
