Wolves 3.05 v Arsenal 2.54; The Draw 3.50 Wednesday 24 April, 19:45
Wolves need to reignite season
Since suffering heartbreak in the semi-finals of the FA Cup, Wolves have yet to win a match in the Premier League.
Wolves' impressive season looked like it would culminate with an appearance in the FA Cup final, only for the side to let a 2-0 lead slip against Watford in the semis. Since then they have lost away at Southampton and at the weekend, they could only draw 0-0 at home with a Brighton side that are fighting against relegation.
These results have seen Wolves slip down to tenth in the table, but they are only one point away from the seventh place spot that could provide a route into the Europa League. Wolves need to reignite their season and the game against Arsenal provides a great chance for them to do just that. Nuno Espirito Santo's team have an excellent record against top six sides and with Arsenal needing points themselves, there will be space for Wolves to exploit.
As Wolves approach their last four matches of the season, Nuno is lucky to find himself in a position where he has a full squad to choose from. Wolves currently have no players injured or suspended.
Can Arsenal juggle Premier League and European commitments?
Arsenal's hopes of making the top four suffered a huge blow on Sunday when they lost 3-2 at home to Crystal Palace.
The Gunners have been extremely reliable at home this season, so the result was a big surprise. It may well have been the case that Arsenal's demanding schedule caught up with them. The match against Palace was their third in seven days, following away wins at Watford and Napoli.
Three of Arsenal's remaining four Premier League games are away from home, which is a worry considering that they have only won two of their last ten Premier League matches on the road (D3 L5). The Europa League provides another chance for Arsenal to qualify for the Champions League, but the two semi-final matches against Valencia increases the likelihood of fatigue.
Unai Emery has a number of injury issues to contend with. Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding, Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck are all definitely out of the trip to Wolves, while Denis Suarez is a doubt.
Wolves are a big price to cause another upset
Arsenal are the 2.54favourites, with Wolves at 3.05 and the draw out at 3.50.
Wolves record against the top six suggests that they are being underestimated (P12 W5 D4 L3). The two sides drew in the reverse fixture earlier this season and Wolves' price is big enough that you can back them, while playing it safe.
The home side are 2.20 in the Draw No Bet market. You can back Wolves to avoid defeat in the Double Chance market at 1.61.
Goals look likely
Of the twelve games that Wolves have played against the top six this season, they have scored in ten of them, which includes their previous match with Arsenal.
The Gunners have scored in each of their last four games and in six of their last eight away matches. Both teams to score looks likely to land at 1.72, with over 2.5 goals another bet to consider at 1.92.
Good options to find the net from both teams
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the favourite to score at 2.50. Aubameyang is fighting to win the Golden Boot, as one of three players who have scored 19 goals in the Premier League this season.
For Wolves, Raul Jiminez leads the betting to score at 2.80. Diogo Jota is another possibility at 3.60, having scored in three of Wolves' last four home matches.
