Kick-off: 1400, 22/08/2021
Wolves and Tottenham have been involved in a number of entertaining encounters since Wanderers were promoted to the Premier League.
Six head-to-head meetings have produced a healthy 19 goals, with both teams scoring in all but one of those previous contests.
We like 10/11 for each side to be on target when Nuno Espirito Santo makes an emotional return to Molineux for our first Wolves vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
New Wolves boss Bruno Lage has indicated he will look to adopt a more open game-plan and there were signs of that, despite a 1-0 defeat at Leicester.
Adama Traore missed a golden opportunity before Jamie Vardy showed him how to finish in the 41st minute.
Wanderers pushed hard for an equaliser but Traore continued to be wasteful while Max Kilman, Leander Dendoncker and Morgan Gibbs-White also missed out.
“The result was more important but the way we play and the chances we created, we deserve more,” insisted Lage.
However, Raul Jimenez should improve for his first league appearance since fracturing his skull nine months ago and summer recruit Francisco Trincao showed glimpses of promise.
On Jimenez, Lage said: “I think he did well, the way he worked for the team. I just have one word for him: just be confident. The goals are coming. The way you work, you’re going to help us win games.”
Jimenez netted in three of four appearances versus Spurs before his injury and 2/1 for him to score here appeals from the Wolves vs Tottenham odds.
Last Wolves line-up: Jose Sa, Hoever, Marcal, Coady, Kilman, Neves, Saiss, Moutinho, Jimenez, Trincao, Traore.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham justifiably received plenty of praise for an opening 1-0 win over champions Manchester City on home turf.
Nuno may not have been Daniel Levy’s first choice to succeed Jose Mourinho but he could not have made a better start to his reign.
With City target Harry Kane absent, Son Heung-min struck on one of several lively counter-attacks and Spurs were resolute in defence at the other end.
Academy graduate Japhet Tanganga was particularly impressive as he kept Raheem Sterling and Jack Grealish largely quiet.
Nuno beamed: “All the team did very well but Japhet was huge. He faced too many one-v-ones against fantastic players and he dealt with the situation.
“There’s no perfection, we still have a long way to go to be perfect and probably we will never achieve it, but I’m really proud of the way the players worked.”
That was a great result for Spurs but we’re reluctant to get too carried away at this early stage, plus they have to recover from a European trip to Portugal here.
Let’s finish off our Wolves vs Tottenham betting tips by taking 7/2 for a score draw.
Last Spurs line-up: Lloris, Reguilon, Sanchez, Tanganga, Hojbjerg, Dier, Alli, Skipp, Son, Bergwijn, Moura.
