Wolves v Sunderland Betting Tips & Odds

In our Wolves v Sunderland betting preview we look at what could possibly be the best bets between the two sides.

Overview

League leaders Wolves host Chris Coleman’s struggling Sunderland in this exciting Championship fixture at Molineux. This game, on paper has got a home win written all over considering both teams form; the hosts have won 15 games out of 20 in the league this term, while Sunderland have only won two. 22 places currently separate the two teams going into this fixture, so it’s going to be really interesting to see how this one plays out.

New Sunderland boss Chris Coleman is going to have his work cut out in this clash against Wolves.

Wolves 4 points clear at the top

The hosts have taken the Championship by storm this season, Nuno Espírito Santo’s men have been in formidable form since the campaign kicked off back in early August, and now lead the way as we head into 2018. The boys from the Black Country have only lost 5 league games this time out, and go into this clash against a struggling Sunderland side having won their last 6 league games. With just 17 goals conceded in 20 games, it’s clear to see why Wolves find themselves topping the pile at this stage of the season. They’ve been so solid defensively and are such a difficult side to break down with the likes of Ryan Bennett, Conor Coady and Willy Boly forming such a tight trio in a tight knit back three.

The hosts have front man Leo Bonatini largely to thank for their success this term. The 23 year old, who is on a season long loan from Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Hilal has bagged 12 league goals so far, with the most recent proving to be the match winner in Wolves’ recent 1-0 win over rivals Birmingham on Monday night. Bonatini is arguably the hottest prospect in the Championship this season, he’s always such a threat in front of goal and will be looking to punish any mistakes the Black Cats make in this encounter, backing the Brazilian to score FIRST in this clash at 3/1 with BetStars could be a really good bet here.

Wolves have won 15 out of 20 this season.

Black Cats unlucky for some…

The visitors here find themselves in a torrid situation heading into the festive period, they’re currently second bottom in the division and are among the favourites to drop down to League One come the end of the season in May. Back to back relegations would be an absolute disaster for the former Premier League mainstays, so they’ll be desperately hoping that recently appointed manager Chris Coleman can start to get them climbing up the table into safety, sooner rather than later. Sunderland have only won one game in their last 15 attempts, so go into this match with absolutely no confidence, knowing that they’re going to need to put in an unbelievably special performance to even stand half a chance against the league’s dominating force.

Leading goalscorer Lewis Grabban has been the one shining light in Sunderlands gloomy abyss this term, the Bournemouth loanee has got 11 league goals to his name so far, with the latest acting as no more than a consolation in their 3-1 defeat at home to Reading last weekend. If the visitors can supply Grabban with the chances, there’s no doubt that he’ll capitalise on them, it’s just whether the supporting cast can manage to break through that incredibly stringent Wolves back line. Sunderland do have an extremely good record against Wolves however; in their last six meetings the Black Cats have won 5 and drawn 1, so do go into this match with a much better track record. That was then and this is now however, and with the form the hosts have been displaying in recent weeks, we’re struggling to look past a home win here!
