Wolves vs Derby predictions and betting tips for the Championship fixture on Wednesday evening with an anytime goalscorer tip and match prediction included.
Wolves opened up a nine point gap with their controversial victory against Cardiff on Friday night and Nuno’s side now need just five more points to ensure their place in next season’s Premier League. They have been excellent during their last two away games but they recently dropped points against Hull and will need to be better here at Molineux against play-off dwellers Derby. The Rams went through a rocky patch in February and March but they have now secured back-to-back wins and have kept clean sheets in both of their games. Gary Rowett’s side possess quality and the division’s top goalscorer in Matej Vydra. They have recently dropped points against Sunderland and Forest and although victories against Preston and Bolton will have boosted confidence within the squad, they will find this much tougher. See our Wolves vs Derby betting tips and predictions in the article below:
Derby are playing well again but there is still work to do. They are probably better playing away from home as the pressure is off. Alex Pearce has improved the side since coming into the team and he formed part of a solid defence who have not conceded a goal for over 180 minutes. Wolves have dropped points here against Hull and Norwich, both of those games ended 2-2 and another point for both teams could be the outcome here. The first of our Wolves vs Derby betting tips is Draw which is available at 3/1 with Bet Victor.
Whilst Derby have been keeping clean sheets, they may buckle under pressure from Wolves and this could be another high-scoring home draw at Molineux. Both Teams to Score? Yes is priced at 23/20 with William Hill and is the second of our Wolves vs Derby predictions.
Wolves have been sharing the goals around and there are a number of players who could find the back of the net here. Matej Vydra went through a barren spell but he’s back amongst the goals and he should be able to increase his tally here. Matej Vydra in the anytime goalscorer market is priced at 37/10 with 888Sport and is the last of our Wolves vs Derby betting tips.
The leaders start as 4/7 favourites for this match and are expected to pick up all three points here. Derby are a 5/1 shot to pick up a shock win at Molineux whilst it’s 3/1 for the points to be shared.
It’s 21/20 for Over 2.5 Goals with a tight and cagey affair expected. Wolves haven’t done low-scoring matches here in the Black Country but those who fancy a quiet game can back Under 2.5 Goals at 31/40.
There are three players at the top of the first goalscorer list with Benik Afobe, Diogo Jota and Leo Bonatini all priced at 16/5 to net the opener. Predictably, Matej Vydra is the shortest price for Derby and can be backed at 11/2.
All these odds are from Bet Victor
Wolves have very few injuries to contend with and fans will be pleased to see Diogo Jota come through 90 minutes unscathed on Friday. Bright Enobakhare is likely to miss out with a knock.
Sam Winnall is a long-term absentee as he continues his recovery from a knee injury. Ikechi Anya is likely to miss out alongside Bradley Johnson.
