Leeds v Wolves betting tips: Visitors come on strong after break
Preview and odds for Saturday’s Premier League clash
Leeds bid to win their second Premier League game of season as we look at the odds to find some Leeds v Wolves betting tips.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side were beaten at Southampton last weekend while Wolves won a midlands derby at Aston Villa.
Saturday’s match, which takes place at Elland Road, kicks off at 3pm.
Leeds v Wolves match odds
Leeds got off the mark with a 1-0 home win against Watford in their last game at Elland Road.
But a 1-0 defeat at Southampton last week leaves Bielsa’s side fourth from bottom in the Premier League, just three points off the relegation zone after eight games.
Six points from eight games marks Leeds’ worst start to a league campaign since 1988-89 (when they also managed six points).
Having scored 12 goals in their final four games in the Premier League last season (W4), Leeds have netted just seven times in their eight fixtures this term (W1 D3 L4). They are 11/8 to triumph.
After a sticky start, a 3-2 win at Villa Park means Wolves have won four of their last five Premier League games, more than they had in their previous 16 (W3 D3 L10).
They sit 10th in the table with 12 points and are looking to win four consecutive top-flight matches for the first time since January 1972.
Bruno Lage’s side have won seven of their last 11 away league games in Yorkshire (D1 L3), including each of their last two against Sheffield United and Leeds, and are 19/10 to take all three points.
There has been just one draw in the last 15 meetings and the odds for a stalemate this time are 23/10 in the Leeds v Wolves betting tips.

Leeds v Wolves head-to-head
Leeds have lost their last five league games against Wolves, scoring just one goal in the process.
It is 4/11 Leeds stem the tide and either win or draw on the Double Chance market.
It used to be that Elland Road was a miserable place for Wolves but in recent times that has changed.
Wolves have won their last three away league games at Leeds without conceding.
They had only won three of their previous 25 league games at Elland Road before this (D4 L18). It is 29/10 that Wolves keep a clean sheet this time.
Five of the last six clashes saw one side fail to net and it is 11/10 that happens again in the Leeds v Wolves betting tips.
Leeds v Wolves key battles
Leeds have been hit by injuries to several defenders this season, with Luke Ayling, Robin Koch and Diego Llorente all having spent time on the treatment table.
Pascal Struijk also had to sit out three matches following his red card against Liverpool.
The absence of Kalvin Phillips at St Mary’s was also felt and it can be no coincidence that Leeds have lost nine of their last 11 games without the England star in the side.
Wolves score plenty of second-half goals – seven of their last eight have been after half-time – while no side has conceded more times after the break than Leeds (11).
