WBA - Wolverhampton

Under / Over
Pick: Over 2,25 goals
Odds: 2.02
Stake: 1

Match date: 03/05/2021

West Bromwich Albion and Wolverhampton play in 34th round match of the English Premiership at 7pm CET. For the hosts, this is the last chance that with win, at least mathematically, stay in the hope of staying in the league, while the guests in 12th place with 41 points have solved all worries for this season and are already slowly thinking about summer holidays.

WBA has scored seven points in the last four rounds, but rescuing 17th place is still 11 points away. If reduced the difference to eight points today, then WBA would have at least minimal hope for a miracle in the remaining four rounds.

There is not too much doubt that coach Sam Allardyce's team will play today, they will play completely offensively from the first minute, just like in the last few games when they had the best goal-scoring period of the whole season.

Allardyce has no major worries with team, Robert Snodgrass could come back into contention following an epidural to treat a niggling injury, but experienced defender Branislav Ivanović is again expected to miss out because of a muscle problem.

Allardyce announced a 4-1-4-1 tactical formation, Diagne will be in attack, and on the wing positions excellent Brazilian Matheus Perreira and Callum Robinson, who together scored 14 goals.

It's to be expected that the hosts will play very energetically and aggressively, but there is a risk that there will be a lot of room for visitors' counter-attacks, and WBA defense is known to be the worst in the league with 64 goals conceded. But, Allardyce got his first win as WBA manager against Wolves at Molineux in January with result 3:2.

Wolverhampton expected a better season from the average mid-table team, but big problems plagued them with injuries. Coach Nuno Espirito Santo has long been unavailable to excellent Mexican striker Raul Jimenez, and Pedro Neto, Jonny and Marcal are also long-term absentees. The visitors may need to assess midfielder Joao Moutinho, who sat out the defeat by Burnley with an ankle problem, and isn't sure about the performance of right back Nelson Semedo.

Wolverhampton have lost four of their previous seven league matches, conceding over two goals on three of them, and particularly painful was the 0:4 defeat in the last round against Burnley.

Santo announced a 3-4-1-2 formation today, and is asking his players to react to such a bad result from the last game.

When it comes to betting, this is an interesting match and one could give confidence to the home club, but again it's known how much pressure there is when the 'must win' situation. Therefore, bet on goals seems better because today WBA simply cannot calculate, while the guests have weapons in counter-attacks. If their first game ended 3:2 for WBA, why wouldn't we see at least three goals today...

HALF LOST Score: 1:1 Profit: -0.5

    got your thinking. But i can only price it 1.90 since Wolves don't look for goals and they simply show they dont care at all. A lucky bare pass to me
