Two very needy teams, Wolverhampton and Liverpool, face each other this Saturday for Matchday 22 of the Premier League.
The Wolves lost last weekend and were just a hair away from entering the relegation zone, something unthinkable for a team that had strengthened itself and continued to do so this month.
Liverpool for its part is having a lousy tournament and if it doesn’t wake up, next season it won’t play any international competition.
Saturday, February 4 at 10:00 am ET at Molineux stadium
Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Wolverhampton
Wolverhampton was one of the teams that could fight to play in Europe next season and right now they are fighting not to be relegated. The hard reality of Julen Lopetegui’s team is that does not raise its head. They lost their last game with Manchester City 3-0 and finished 17th with 17 points, the same as 18th, Bournemouth, but with a better goal difference, and 2 points more than Everton and Southampton, 19 ° and 20°, respectively.
The Wolves found quality and quantity in this transfer window. Matheus Cunha, Craig Dawson, Mario Lemina, Pablo Sarabia, and Joao Gomes joined the team this January. West Ham’s veteran defender Dawson and Flamengo’s young Brazilian midfielder Joao Gomes are the only ones yet to make their debut. The rest have already played but they have not made a difference.
Although they won the last home game (1-0 against West Ham), they lost the previous 4.
Why Bet on Liverpool
Liverpool wants this season to end as quickly as possible. Nothing similar to last year, where they fought until the last day for the Premier League. On this occasion, after playing half of the tournament, they are in 9th place with 29 points, 21 less than the leader, Arsenal, and 10 less than Newcastle and United, who occupy the last two Champions League places.
For the Reds, there are already 3 winless games with 2 losses (against Brentford and Brighton), and a draw at home with Chelsea (0-0). The only new face on the team, Cody Gakpo, still doesn’t shine like he did at PSV and the Dutch national team. Jurgen Klopp tried to bring other players but couldn’t, he will have to wait for Luis Díaz, Roberto Firmino, and Diogo Jota to recover and return to the courts.
Darwin Núñez, who arrived as a great scorer, has only scored 5 goals in the Premier League. In 2023 he only scored 1 goal and it was for the FA Cup.
Final Betting Analysis: Wolverhampton vs. Liverpool
Two teams from which much more was expected are having a very poor performance and are far from the positions they thought. The two coaches are very concerned and hope to be able to straighten the course as soon as possible since each one has a great team but the results are not accompanying them. It will be an even game and we believe it will be a draw.
At MyBookie.ag we find that Liverpool is the favorite of the match with a Moneyline of -115, while Wolverhampton has +310 and the draw is +280.
The last time they met was a couple of weeks ago for the FA Cup. At Anfield, they drew 2-2 so they had to play the second game at Molineux and there Liverpool won 0-1 with a great goal from Harvey Elliott. The Wolves have not beaten the Reds in the league since 2010, the same year they last tied in the Premier League.
Go for a draw in the Moneyline. If you bet $100 on the draw at +280, you will gain $280 for a total payout of $380.
