Wolves vs Sheff Utd: Wanderers to grind out home win

Kick-off: 2015, 17/04/2021

Stadium: Molineux

TV: Sky Sports

Wolves could still sneak into the top half of the Premier League table with a strong finish to the season and should see off Sheffield United.

The Blades are bound for the Championship next term and have only scored one goal in a run of five consecutive league and cup defeats.

We reckon 13/10 for a home win to nil is an obvious place to start with our first Wolves vs Sheff Utd prediction.

A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds

Wolves have slipped below the standards of their last two campaigns but picked up an encouraging 1-0 victory at Fulham.

Willian Jose was denied his maiden goal since joining on loan when a well-weighted header at the end of the first half was ruled out for offside by VAR.

However, in the 92nd minute, Adama Traore escaped down the right before firing home to secure his side’s first success since mid-February.

Nuno Espirito Santo said: “Justice is not the word, I think we looked for it, we worked hard for it and we got our goal in the end.

“But it is not just about scoring, it is about recognising the hard work of both teams and knowing that it can happen to anyone in the last minute of the game, we have been on the other side of it.”

That triumph was sadly marred by losing Pedro Neto to a season-ending injury, while Ruben Neves tested positive for coronavirus after featuring at Craven Cottage.

Wanderers should have enough strength in depth to do the business here, though, so 21/10 for a home win and under 2.5 goals also appeals from the Wolves vs Sheff Utd odds.

Last Wolves line-up: Rui Patricio, Ait Nouri, Coady, Semedo, Dendoncker, Neves, Podence, Saiss, Neto, Willian Jose, Traore.

Wolves will have Willy Boly back in contention as the defender returns from a period of self-isolation after being diagnosed with Covid-19.

However, midfielder Neves will continue his isolation period. Joao Moutinho is still unavailable with the groin problem he suffered on international duty, while Marcal is yet to return from his own groin injury.

A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds

Sheffield United showed some spirit when going down 2-1 at Leeds but looked a spent force when beaten 3-0 by Arsenal at Bramall Lane.

With the Blades 18 points from safety with seven games to go, interim boss Paul Heckingbottom said: “It’s an unforgiving league.

“Just as I thought we were having our strongest moments in the game, we conceded a second goal which took the wind out of our sails.

“We have to keep going. The season we’ve had as a club has taken its toll, but you have to look forward.

“The moment you want to have a breather and not give 100 per cent, then you are no good to the team.”

Heckingbottom talked of being spurred on to catch second-from-bottom West Brom by pride and financial incentives, but even that seems beyond them following back-to-back wins for Albion.

One key period of this game could come just after the hour mark, as Wolves have a 4-0 record at home in the next 15 minutes and United 2-9 in away matches.

Let’s finish off our Wolves vs Sheff Utd betting tips by taking 14/5 for Wanderers to outscore the Blades between 60:01 and 75:00 minutes.

Last Sheff Utd line-up: Ramsdale, Baldock, Stevens, Egan, Ampadu, Fleck, Lundstram, Burke, Norwood, Osborn, McGoldrick.

The Blades were dealt a double injury blow this week with the news that Oli McBurnie and Billy Sharp will miss the rest of the season through injury. John Fleck is another concern due to a stiff groin.
