Wolves v Bournemouth: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Due to their excellent starts to the season, Wolves and Bournemouth were being touted as outside shouts for the Premier League’s European spots. Those dreams have been dashed recently due to mixed form from both and it is all about finishing the season strongly now for these two mid-table sides. 

With injury issues plaguing 11th-placed Wolves, 13th-placed Bournemouth in mixed form and just one point between the pair in the table, there could be very little to split the two at Molineux.

Wolves v Bournemouth betting tips and predictions

Draw - 13/5 

Wolves started the season brilliantly, leading to Gary O’Neil being linked with the likes of Manchester United. However, things have slowed down a bit at Molineux, and after a run of five Premier League games without a win, any hopes they harboured of a European finish have been dashed. 

Their five-match winless run can be extended to six when considering their FA Cup defeat to Championship Coventry prior to the five league fixtures and draws with lowly Burnley and Nottingham Forest have summed up a dismal run for the Wanderers. 

Wolves have lost three on the spin at Molineux, but may just about have enough to snap that streak on Wednesday, albeit with a draw. A win looks to be beyond them due to the absence of key men Matheus Cunha, Pedro Neto and Craig Dawson, but a draw seems possible. 

They boast an excellent record against Bournemouth, losing just one of their last seven clashes with the Cherries, and won the reverse fixture 2-1 earlier in the season. 

Bournemouth’s only win in their last seven Premier League away games came at struggling Burnley, suggesting most of their best form comes at the Vitality and that they could struggle to take three points at Molineux. 

There is just one point between the pair in the table, and with Wolves’ injury woes likely to limit their attacking output and the Cherries’ recent issues on the road, it could pay to back the spoils to be shared on Wednesday. 

Dominic Solanke to score - 13/8

Dawson will be a big miss at the back for Wolves, while Nelson Semedo’s absence leaves a big hole on the right of O’Neil’s favoured 3-5-2 system. Both absences could open the door for the visitors to find the net at Molineux, with Dominic Solanke likely to lead the Cherries’ charge on Wednesday. 

The England striker has already scored 18 league goals this term and has shown no signs of slowing down either, netting four times in his last six games and in each of his previous two appearances. 

Wolves have gone eight games without a clean sheet, shipped 16 goals in that run and conceded three times to Championship side Coventry last month. Their defence is far from solid and their injuries will only add to those woes. 

Not only will Dawson and Semedo be missed at the back but key attackers Neto and Cunha being out means the hosts may struggle to make the ball stick in the Bournemouth half, with plenty of turnovers likely to put a lot of pressure on a shaky backline. 

Solanke netted the Cherries’ sole goal in the reverse fixture, and he looks set to capitalise on Wolves’ woes on Wednesday. 

Toti Gomes to be booked - 5/1

The reverse fixture proved to be a feisty one with eight yellows and one red card brandished at the Vitality in October, so the referee may have his work cut out on Wednesday.

Toti Gomes tends to be deployed on the left of Wolves’ back three and he could have a busy evening up against Antoine Semenyo, who is full of pace and tricks and could target the Portuguese centre-back. Rayan Ait-Nouri is likely to play as the hosts’ left wing-back, and his tendency to prioritise attack over defence could leave Gomes exposed up against Semenyo. 

Gomes could be facing a mismatch up against Semenyo, so 5/1 looks a big price for the Wolves centre-back to be cautioned.
