Wolves at 2.45 seems like a good price but it had opened at 2.51, so any value that was there has been eroded already. The draw price hasn’t moved much, but Leicester at 2.89 has drifted from 2.56, while the market certainly doesn’t seem to be favouring the Foxes they certainly have more value than Wolves.
Wolves’ home form has been decent this season but not wonderful, they’ve won four, drawn five and lost three, scoring 18 and conceding 17, that’s an average of 1.50 and 1.42 per match.

Imagine seeing Wolves in the Champions League next season, most of us would love to see that.
