Wolves versus Everton looks a pretty even contest but it is worth noting that these two teams do not feature in many Premier League draws.
No top-flight side has been involved in fewer than the Toffees’ two stalemates this season, while Wanderers have only shared the spoils four times in 17 outings.
Bearing that in mind, we like 6/5 for either team to win by exactly one goal for our first Wolves vs Everton prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves head into this match buoyed by a 1-0 home win over Crystal Palace in the FA Cup, with Adama Traore on target after 35 minutes.
The 24-year-old had not scored since February but his solo run and ferocious strike proved enough to see Wanderers progress on Friday night.
“It was a special goal from a special player,” said Nuno Espirito Santo. “I am very happy because I think this goal will boost his confidence.
“He has been really trying in training sessions and that is why I am so happy. I ask all the players to get shots on goal, now I will ask Adama to keep doing this every game.”
Wolves’ league form has been up and down this term and increasing their goal tally would be a big bonus, as only four teams have netted fewer times.
Past encounters with Everton have been entertaining, though, and a bet on over 2.5 goals in the game would have paid out in four straight meetings.
We think 6/5 for that sequence to be extended is decent value from the Wolves vs Everton odds.
Last Wolves line-up: Ruddy, Ait Nouri, Coady, Semedo, Neves, Saiss, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Neto, Silva, Traore.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton were taken to extra-time by Rotherham at Goodison Park in the cup, with Cenk Tosun’s early opener cancelled out by Matthew Olosunde.
However, the quality of the Toffees’ bench told as substitute Abdoulaye Doucoure scored the decider just three minutes into the extra half an hour.
Manager Carlo Ancelotti made eight changes for the tie but will have been happy to get minutes into the likes of Tosun and James Rodriguez, who is just back from injury.
The Merseyside outfit are seven points above Wolves in the table and have a game in hand, thanks to four consecutive victories either side of Christmas.
A home loss to West Ham on New Year’s Day ended that hot streak but Ancelotti will still be content with the progress made this term.
Everton have scored 16 of their 26 goals in the first half of matches so far, while Wolves have netted 50 per cent of their 18 goals before the break.
Let’s take a punt on both teams hitting the target prior to the interval here at 15/4 for our final Wolves vs Everton prediction.
Last Everton line-up: Olsen, Keane, Digne, Godfrey, Coleman, Rodriguez, Gomes, Davies, Tosun, Iwobi, Gordon.
WOLVES 1-0 Crystal Palace – Adama Traore
EVERTON 2-1 Rotherham (AET) – Cenk Tosun, Abdoulaye Doucoure
Head-to-head: Wolves 3-0 Everton, Everton 3-2 Wolves, Everton 1-3 Wolves, Wolves 2-2 Everton
