The Wolves have scored 7 goals in their last five games. While attack has been decent enough, defence leaves a lot to be desired, with 11 goals conceded during this period.

Wolverhampton vs. Stoke City Betting Tips

It’s be Stoke, and not the Wolves, who’ll be licking their chops in the run-up to this fixture. A win in this away game would give Stoke some real momentum and put some pressure on Liverpool and Newcastle on the Premiership table.

With Stoke fielding a quality strike force, and the Wolves struggling at the back, you’d need to back Stoke to win this. However, one can’t overlook the numerous draws between these sides in recent years.

With this in mind our Wolverhampton vs. Stoke City betting tip is to go with a lay bet on the home side at Betfair to get a payout off the draw or the Stoke win.
