Sportingbet preview: Wolves

Our betting partners Sportingbet give us a guide to the markets available for Saturday's clash at Wolves.

Spurs head to Wolves this weekend with the words of Harry Redknapp ringing in their ears. Following two defeats from their opening two games, the Tottenham boss has challenged his players to bounce back with a win in the West Midlands.

After a 5-1 humbling at home to Manchester City, Spurs sit bottom of the pile after two games, in contrast to Saturday’s opposition. Wolves are unbeaten in their first three Premier League fixtures and will fancy their chances of piling more misery on the travelling troops.

The hosts managed to pick up three points against the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City at Molineux last season but they failed to overcome Spurs at home or away and the 3-3 fixture in the West Midlands stood out as one of the games of the season.

But with new signings Scott Parker and Emmanuel Adebayor added to the ranks, Redknapp can rightly expect his team to be more competitive than their opening two matches. So the 9/4 on Spurs coming away with maximum points with Sportingbet is attractive.

Wolves are a 17/10 shot to continue their unbeaten start with three points with a draw a 27/20 poke.

A repeat of last season’s goal-fest looks an attractive proposition with Over 2.5 Goals available at 10/11 while Over 3.5 Goals can be backed at 5/2 and Both Teams To Score a 4/6 option.

Adebayor has already been priced up as 5/1 favourite to break the deadlock with the first goal on Saturday but Jermaine Defoe, who netted twice at Molineux last season, is 11/2. Scott Parker is 16/1 to strike first, on his debut, with Sportingbet.

If you want to win more than just cash, the Sportingbet Spurs Zone continues to deliver for fantastic prizes and there’s plenty more on offer right now.
