Wolves took four points off Manchester United in the Premier League last season and knocked them out of the FA Cup, so they must be rated a value bet as underdogs at Molineux.
The Red Devils received plenty of plaudits for a big win over Chelsea on the opening weekend but there were some worrying signs that day too.
With the visitors’ new-look defence still to fully settle and their midfield looking lightweight, 12/5 for Wanderers to win is our initial Wolves vs Man Utd prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves were left to rue Leander Dendoncker’s second-half strike being ruled out by VAR when drawing 0-0 in a cagey contest at Leicester.
Nuno Espirito Santo was happy with his side’s efforts, though, especially coming off a round trip of 6,370 miles to Armenia in the Europa League.
“When a player comes into the dressing room having given everything he has, I am a very proud manager,” he declared.
Wanderers will be fresher for this contest after facing FC Pyunik in the second leg at home and having an extra day to recover.
Their slick passing and movement should again cause United problems, with Paul Pogba still happy to stroll around the centre of the park and Scott McTominay and Andreas Pereira short of experience.
Looking at the Wolves vs Man Utd odds, it was 2-1 to the hosts in both meetings here last spring and 11/1 for that scoreline to come up once more is tempting.
Last Wolves line-up: Rui Patricio, Doherty, Bennett, Boly, Coady, Jonny, Neves, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Jimenez, Jota.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United ultimately ran out convincing 4-0 victors against Chelsea and it must be admitted that Pogba was superb in instigating counter-attacks during the second half.
Marcus Rashford’s brace, a close-range strike from Anthony Martial and a debut goal for Daniel James sent Old Trafford wild.
However, it could have been a much different afternoon if Chelsea had converted numerous great chances in the first period, with the Blues hitting the woodwork twice and repeatedly creating clear-cut openings.
Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka were positives at the back but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted: “We were a bit lucky.
“We’re still a work in progress, we still know we’re not anywhere near the finished article and we have got loads of improvement to be made.
“But we have found a way we want to play. We took risks, but that’s the way here; you’ve gotta go for it, risk and reward.”
Allowing teams to pin them back is frought with danger, though, and 7/1 for Diogo Jota to open the scoring is added to our Wolves vs Man Utd betting tips after he netted in both games against the Red Devils here last term.
Last Man Utd line-up: De Gea, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Wan-Bissaka, Pogba, Lingard, Pereira, McTominay, Martial, Rashford.
Leicester 0-0 WOLVES
MAN UTD 4-0 Chelsea – Marcus Rashford (2), Anthony Martial, Daniel James
Head-to-head: Wolves 2-1 Man Utd, Wolves 2-1 Man Utd, Man Utd 1-1 Wolves
