Wolves v Luton: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Wolves missed the chance to move into the top half when losing 1-0 at home to Bournemouth on Wednesday, but they will be looking to put things right at home to third-bottom Luton, who are one point inside the relegation zone with four games left to play.

Wolves and over 2.5 goals - 7/4

Wolves have suffered back-to-back Premier League defeats for the first time in 2024, but they have put together a largely positive campaign and can get back on track by defeating Luton.

It is undeniable that Saturday’s Molineux meeting is of greater importance to the Hatters, who are battling to preserve their top-flight status, than their 12th-placed hosts.

Luton were widely expected to be out of their depth this season, but they have stayed in the survival hunt and are only a point behind fourth-bottom Nottingham Forest, who seem to be wasting much of their energy on fighting against authority rather than focusing on the tasks in front of them.

If the scrap for survival was mainly about keeping cool heads, Luton would have every chance of succeeding.

The Hatters have stayed level-headed on the majority of occasions with only defender Issa Kabore (seven cautions from 24 matches) collecting more than five yellow cards.

However, the squad has been stretched by an injury crisis and that impact on performance was evident last Saturday as Rob Edwards’s side lost 5-1 at home to a Brentford side without Ivan Toney.

Last weekend’s capitulation extended the sequence of games without a clean sheet to 14 and left Luton fans worrying about whether their club has enough to pull themselves away from danger.

Luton are the top scorers among the bottom five with 47 goals and are likely to take a positive, attacking-minded approach into their remaining matches.

But their struggles at the back are likely to continue against a Wolves attack bolstered by the recent returns from injury of key forwards Matheus Cunha and Hwang Hee-Chan.

Wolves started without Cunha and Hwang for last Saturday’s 2-0 loss at home to Arsenal and offered very little in the final third.

They should be much more effective against Luton and are capable of registering in a high-scoring success.

Matheus Cunha to score any time  – 7/5

Matheus Cunha has been the bright spark for Wolves in recent times, scoring six goals in his last eight appearances, and he looks an overpriced 7/5 shot to find the net against Luton.

The Brazilian was signed on a permanent deal from Atletico Madrid last summer and hasn’t disappointed.

Overall the 24-year-old has delivered 11 goals and six assists and his contributions have been key to ensuring that Wolves have kept on picking up points despite the long periods of absence for injury-hit Portuguese winger Pedro Neto.

Cunha picked up a minor calf injury earlier this month and was absent for last Saturday’s 2-0 loss at home to Arsenal.

However, he was lively off the bench in Wednesday’s loss to Bournemouth and could play a match-winning role this weekend.

Under 4.5 match cards - 1/1

With both teams motivated to push for the three points, there is sure to be a competitive edge to the game.

However, the caution count is unlikely to go through the roof and there may be value in backing under 4.5 match cards at 1/1.

Luton have to be physical every time they enter the pitch but they are also one of the more disciplined teams in the division.

The Hatters have collected just 61 yellow cards (the fifth lowest in the league) and are the only top-flight team to have kept 11 men on the pitch in every game.

Wolves have had far more problems with officials, collecting 89 yellow cards and three reds.

However, they are likely to be focusing on their football after two successive defeats and may incur a lower than average card count.
