Wolves v Manchester United betting tips: Red Devils spy new road record
Odds and preview for Sunday’s Premier League clash
After a pair of 1-0 defeats, Wolves bid to kick-start their season when hosting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils as we look at some Wolves v Manchester United betting tips.
United started the campaign in fine style with a 5-1 victory over Leeds before being held to a 1-1 draw by Southampton while Wolves were again ruing their profligacy in front of goal for the second week running when losing to Tottenham.
Sunday’s match, which takes place at Molineux, kicks off at 4.30pm BST and is live on Sky Sports.
Wolves v Man Utd match odds
Bruno Lage is still looking for his first Premier League point and his side’s first goal of the new campaign.
Wolves have played well in both single-goal defeats to Leicester and Tottenham. Indeed, they generated 42 shots in their first two games and only Liverpool (46) attempted more.
Yet they have now lost each of their last five Premier League games, scoring just one goal in the process and are 18/5 to beat Manchester United.
Spurs target Adama Traore has had 10 shots in two games so far this season but is yet to find the net.
Indeed, the Spaniard has scored with just two of his last 74 shots in the competition and the Wolves man is 5/1 to score at any time.
This will be Solskjaer’s 100th Premier League match in charge of United (W52 D28 L19) and his side could create a piece of history.
Unbeaten in their last 27 Premier League away games (W17 D10), if avoiding defeat they will set a new record for longest unbeaten away run in English football league history.
There have been 20 draws in the previous 107 meetings between the two (21.4%) since 1892 – including three in the last six – and the draw is on offer at 13/5.

It is Evens for them to win or draw the game in the Double Chance.
United have lost just one of their last eight Premier League meetings with Wolves (W4 D3), going down 2-1 at Molineux in April 2019 and are 11/4 to win but concede.
The Red Devils have scored first in 12 of the last 15 meetings and they are 8/13 to do so again in the Wolves v Manchester United betting tips.
Seven of the last nine meetings yielded under three total goals and it is 4/5 that this trend continues.
Four of the last five meetings saw one team fail to score and it is 10/11 this occurs again.
Wolves v Man Utd key battles
While conscious of firing blanks, Wolves will be wary of the threat at the other end of the park.
United have had no trouble finding the net and in particular Mason Greenwood is an emerging force.
He has scored in both of their opening two games and could become just the second teenager to strike in his team’s first three games of a Premier League campaign after Robbie Fowler for Liverpool in 1994-95.
