Sportingbet preview: Wolves

Our official betting partner Sportingbet take a look at the odds on offer for Saturday's match against Wolves at the Lane.


Wolves may have proved a bogey team last season, but Spurs are odds on favourites to set the record straight come Saturday.

That 1-0 defeat at the Lane was a rare blip on an otherwise impeccable record in front of the home faithful, so 2/5 with Official Betting Partner Sportingbet seems a fair price for Harry Redknapp's men to have their revenge.

The draw at 14/5 could be worth consideration if you believe in Champions League hangovers, but surely even at 7/1 Wolves can't upset the odds for a second straight year.

If you're confident revenge will be sweet, then the Correct Score market should be your first stop, with bigger prices on offer for nailing the manner of victory. A 3-1 home win pays 11/1 on your money; the more conservative punter may prefer 1-0 at 11/2 while a 4-0 rout would multiply a £10 bet into £170!

With Jermain Defoe sidelined long-term, Peter Crouch (4/1 First Goalscorer) and Roman Pavlyuchenko (5/6 Anytime Goalscorer) will be expected to continue picking up the slack on the Spurs front line, but there is still plenty of ammunition coming from midfield.

Back Rafael Van Der Vaart to continue his strong start to life in lilywhite with the first goal in a 2-1 win and now we're talking 50/1 on your money. And there's plenty more where that came from when you take on the Scorecast market.

Plus make a Spurs win part of a five-leg accumulator with Sportingbet this weekend and if just one leg lets you down, you'll receive a full refund of your bet thanks to Accumulator Refunds.

Your tips don't have to be limited to football and with another packed sporting weekend ahead, it's worth joining the discussion on the Sportingbet Podcast before backing your hunch.

This week there's views from the likes of ex-England international Steve Bull, former Epsom Derby winning jockey John Reid and Hull KR coach Justin Morgan, as well as tips from our in-house experts.

Good luck this weekend!
