Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Norwich City betting tips: Premier League preview, predictions and odds

Norwich knocked Wolves out the FA Cup as recently as February, just their second victory at Molineux in 18 attempts, dating back to 1995. Before then, Wolves were unbeaten in five meetings with the Canaries, winning three of these matches. Norwich have won just five of their last 56 Premier League away games. 

Under 2.5 goals is 10/11.

Under 2.5 goals and both teams to score NO is 5/4.

Wolves to win and both teams to score NO is also 5/4.

Raúl Jiménez has scored twice in three Premier League appearances against Norwich. The Mexican striker is 11/4 to break the deadlock and 5/6 to add to this tally. 

Match preview

After both suffered heavy, bruising defeats on Wednesday night, who will bounce back in the Black Country?

Last time out, Wolves were demolished 5-1 by champions elect Manchester City, despite Leander Dendoncker's 11th minute equaliser.

This means Wolverhampton Wanderers are now winless in five matches having lost three on the bounce in April.

However, some of the doom and gloom had been lifted last weekend when Wolves came from 2-0 down to draw with Chelsea.

Francisco Trincão halving the deficit at Stamford Bridge, before Conor Coady powered home a 97th minute header.

Nevertheless, this broader downturn in form has derailed Wolves' European aspirations; they remain eighth but are five points below West Ham.

Given that they travel to Anfield on the final day, that gap looks insurmountable.

In better news, manager Bruno Lage should be back on the touchline for this one having missed the last two matches due to a positive Covid-19 test.

Having said all of that, despite their poor run of results, not many would've predicted Wolves would finish eighth.

So, will they bookend a generally encouraging campaign by winning their final home match of the season?

Well, given that Norwich City are the visitors, this seems likely.

The Canaries were beaten again in midweek, this time going down 3-0 at Leicester, with all the goals coming after the interval.

Dean Smith's side were relegated a few weeks ago and come into this one having lost five games on the bounce, conceding 15 goals and scoring just twice.

In all, the Yellows have taken just four points from the last 39 available.

This means it'll be the fourth season in a row that Norwich change division, with their last four top-flight escapades all ending in relegation.

Thus, anything other than a home win at Molineux would be a major surprise.

Wolverhampton Wanderers team news

With Max Kilman and Romain Saïss out injured, Wolves are short of centre-back options.

As a result, Jonny started alongside Conor Coady and Willy Boly on Wednesday night; Marçal or Toti Gomes could get the nod this time.

A right-wing-back, surprisingly, Chiquinho was the one deputising for Nélson Semedo, chosen over Ki-Jana Hoever.

João Moutinho and Rúben Neves will continue in midfield, but Leander Dendoncker could make-way for a more attacking option.

Hee-chan Hwang and Pedro Neto could support Raúl Jiménez up front with Francisco Trincão and Fábio Silva left out.

Daniel Podence is out injured.

Norwich City team news

Dean Smith made a change in goal on Wednesday night with Angus Gunn coming in for Tim Krul.

Despite the fact Gunn has conceded 30 goals across his last nine Premier League appearances, he could continue to don the gloves at Molineux.

At the back, Ben Gibson has been dropped of late with Sam Byram shifting across to centre-back and Max Aarons coming in.

Dimitrios Giannoulis could keep his place on the left side of defence, chosen over Manchester United loanee Brandon Williams.

19 year old Tony Springett made his Premier League debut out-wide on Wednesday so will be hoping for more minutes here.

Teemu Pukki has got ten goals to his name this season but has never netted in four games against Wolves.
