Kick-off: 1400, 15/12/2019
Wolves and Tottenham are separated by just one place and a single point in the Premier League table and a close encounter is on the cards at Molineux.
Both teams have been in solid form in this competition, with Wanderers unbeaten in 11 top-flight fixtures and Spurs only losing at Manchester United in their last six.
We’re happy to sit on the fence and take 5/2 for a draw as our opening Wolves vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves shared the spoils for the sixth time in that strong sequence of results when drawing 2-2 at Brighton, where Diogo Jota bagged both goals.
Nuno Espirito Santo was able to make sweeping changes for Thursday’s Europa League clash with Besiktas, as a place in the knockout rounds had already been assured.
All seems well with Wanderers, who were even able to fit in a three-day trip to Marbella for warm weather training earlier this week.
“A break is always important, we have been doing it for three years and we appreciate it,” Nuno said. “The most useful thing is the time we spent together as a group.”
Raul Jimenez is having another fine season, scoring 15 goals in all competitions and six times in the Premier League, five of which have come in the second half of matches.
The Mexico international did spark fears over his future when telling Spanish newspaper Marca he is enjoying life at Molineux but always wants to improve his situation.
Nuno commented: “What I know is we’re delighted with Raul. He has been sensational and fantastic for us.
“Being ambitious, having ambitions and dreaming is something that all of us have. Our ambitions are built on the present, on a daily basis.
“What he is doing is amazing – every day of his life is dedicated to Wolves, so we are delighted with it.”
Jimenez scored in both games against Spurs last term, so we like 2/1 for him to strike at anytime and 5/1 he grabs the last goal of the game from the Wolves vs Tottenham odds.
Last Wolves EPL line-up: Rui Patricio, Doherty, Coady, Jonny, Neves, Saiss, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Jimenez, Jota, Traore.
Wolves are expected to revert back to the team which drew with Brighton last weekend.
Jimenez is available after being suspended for Thursday’s 4-0 Europa League win over Besiktas while Diogo Jota, who scored a hat-trick after coming off the bench, will return to the starting line-up.
Morgan Gibbs-White (back) and Willy Boly (fractured leg) remain out.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Jose Mourinho shuffled his pack for Tuesday’s 3-1 Champions League loss at Bayern Munich, so we’re not unduly worried by that defeat.
“I am happy with the decisions I made, I hope our supporters understand what I did,” said Mourinho. “Internally, we made this decision and we think it was the best decision for the team.
“I would have preferred a better result, but I am happy with the information I take back. I take lots of information on players that is going to influence my decisions in the future.”
Spurs had previously thrashed Burnley 5-0 to make it three wins in four Premier League fixtures.
Harry Kane bagged a brace that day, while Lucas Moura, Son Heung-Min and Moussa Sissoko were also on target in a high-tempo display.
They have netted 12 times in their last four league games and have only failed to score in two top-flight fixtures this term.
Let’s add 333/100 for a score draw to our Wolves vs Tottenham betting tips.
Last Spurs EPL line-up: Gazzaniga, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Aurier, Dier, Sissoko, Alli, Moura, Son, Kane.
Kane, Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen and Serge Aurier were all rested in midweek, but will come back at Molineux.
Harry Winks is back in training, but Hugo Lloris, Tanguy Ndombele, Ben Davies, Erik Lamela and Michel Vorm are all injured.
