Man United vs Wolves prediction, odds, expert football betting tips and best bets for Premier League match | Sporting News

Manchester United return to Premier League play as they travel to visit a surging Wolves side at Monlieux Stadium on Thursday.

The Red Devils had a brutal December in which they won just two of their eight matches across all competitions, and while they have since avoided defeat in their three games in 2024, it still feels as if this season is close to being ruled a disappointment.

Last time out in the FA Cup against League Two side Newport County over the weekend, United again looked frail. While they managed to progress in the competition, the optics were poor as they squandered an early 2-0 lead, requiring a pair of goals in the final half-hour to advance with a 4-2 win.

Wolves, meanwhile, have gone seven matches unbeaten across all competitions, winning five and drawing two in that span. The streak has vaulted them to 10th in the Premier League table, and a win here would see them catch and pass Man United in the top half of the table.

Man United vs Wolves prediction, odds

  • Moneyline lean: Wolves (+170)
  • Score prediction: Wolves 2-1 Man United

Erik ten Hag’s side has shown signs of continued struggles even through this mini three-match unbeaten run. The near-disaster against Newport County last time out in the FA Cup was the latest example of poor optics even in victory.

Their 2-2 draw with Spurs before that saw United well beaten on the run of play, and they struggled mightily at Nottingham Forest in their most recent Premier League road trip, a 2-1 defeat.

Wolves, meanwhile, are on a good run of form, unbeaten in their last four games and producing a solid attacking output in each match, even the 0-0 draw with Brighton last time out, an effort that just lacked finishing from both sides.

Man United vs Wolves betting tips, best bets

  • Pick: Wolves over 1.5 goals
  • Odds: +130 (DraftKings)

Manchester United have been poor defensively throughout the season, hampered by injuries but plagued by individual errors as well. Conceding twice to Newport County last time out was embarrassing, allowing their lower league opponents to take a whopping 17 shots despite just 29 percent possession.

Additionally, Wolves excel from corners, an area in which the Red Devils conversely struggle. The hosts have scored six goals off corners this season, fifth-most in the Premier League. Meanwhile, Man United has conceded four goals from corners on 6.32 xG, having seen opponents take 135 corners in league play, fourth-most in the league. Set pieces could be big for Wolves in this match.

  • Pick: Highest scoring half — 2H
  • Odds: -110 (DraftKings)

Between these two teams, 54 goals have been scored in Premier League action this season, with just 18 of those coming before halftime, or one third. Conversely, Man United and Wolves have conceded a combined 61 goals this year, with just 15 of those coming in the first half, or 24.5 percent. These two teams have made a habit of letting loose after the break, to varying degrees of effectiveness.
