A team with plenty of pre-season hype, Nuno Espirito Santo spoke of the need for his side to collectively raise their efforts in order to turn around the recent slump which has derailed a promising start to the campaign. 888Sport make the hosts 18/5 (4.60) to snap that unwanted with a victory at Molineux.
Chelsea won 2-0 against Fulham on Sunday and are 41/50 (1.82) with the same firm to make it back-to-back victories while a draw is 13/5 (3.60).
Despite the home side having a couple of days extra to prepare, that price about an away win certainly appeals given Wolves’ issues of late.
A narrow defeat to Tottenham and a draw with Arsenal were respectable results but the defeats to the likes of Huddersfield, Watford and Brighton are tough to ignore.
Three straight Premier League defeats at Molineux is far from what was expected of the Championship winners who were so impressive in their journey to the top-flight.
Punters would certainly want to see a little more from Wolves to satisfy the question marks that have been prominent in their recent performances.
The hosts have lacked cutting edge in the final third and Chelsea’s defence is often tough to crack. Maurizio Sarri’s side have played five of the current bottom half sides on the road this term, keeping four clean sheets. It’s 2/1 (3.0) about the visitors winning to nil this time around.
While Wolves should offer more than the likes of Southampton, Burnley and Huddersfield, their recent form makes it tough to trust them and adds weight to the appeal of a Chelsea side who’ve largely swatted aside teams of this calibre so far.
In eight games against bottom half teams Chelsea have won seven of them, making the 41/50 (1.82) about another victory look an attractive prospect for punters.
