Tottenham will be hoping to keep their Champions League dreams alive when they welcome Wolves to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in Sunday’s Premier League clash.
Spurs are nine points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea with just three matches left to play, although do have one game in hand on the Blues.
Tottenham vs Wolves Latest Odds
Having won five of their last six league matches on home turf, they are 1/2 (1.50) favourites with bet365 to retain some faint hope of Champions League qualification by coming out on top here.
However, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have won both of their last two away matches against this opposition and can be backed at 11/2 (6.50) to make it three in a row in this one.
The sides shared a 1-1 draw in December’s reverse encounter at Molineux, and you can get odds of 10/3 (4.33) on them sharing the spoils yet again.
Tottenham vs Wolves Team News
Ben Davies is still ruled out with a calf injury for the hosts, who otherwise have a fully fit squad to choose from.
Willy Boly has returned to training after suffering from long COVID, while Owen Otasawie will be assessed and Marcal, Jonny, Pedro Neto and Raul Jimenez are all sidelined.
Tottenham vs Wolves Preview
Anyone tuning in to watch this match should be careful not to switch off too early, as late goals have been an often decisive feature of recent meetings between this pair.
Indeed, Wolves rescued a point with an 86th-minute equaliser in the reverse fixture, the fourth goal scored in the final 10 minutes in four encounters.
This trend for late goals could well be set to continue considering visitors have scored 10 of their last 12 goals after half-time, finding the net before the break in just one of the previous 12 fixtures.
What’s more, Ryan Mason’s team have only conceded seven first-half goals in their 19 home matches in all competitions this season, while scoring nine of their last 12 goals in the second 45 in their own backyard.
Tottenham vs Wolves Tips and Predictions
All in all, odds of 21/20 (2.05) seem generous on the majority of the action taking place after half-time for Spurs’ eighth home game in 11 and Wolves’ sixth in eight on the road.
All odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
