Tipster’s Angle

This is expected to be a low-scoring thriller with less than three goals being scored in it. Despite Manchester United dominating, the Wolves have done pretty well against them. So, it wouldn’t be surprising if this match ends in a stalemate.

Tip: Both Teams To Score – No @ 1.77

In the last six head-to-head matches, both teams managed to find the back of the net in just one match and clean sheets were kept in the remaining five matches. Manchester United kept a clean sheet in the reverse fixture as well. In the last five matches that Manchester United has played in all competitions, clean sheets were kept in two of those matches. In all of the last eight matches that Wolves has played in all competitions, both teams failed to score. Wolves are coming into this fixture with a 0-0 draw against Chelsea. So, it is more likely that both teams will not find the back of the net at 1.77 odds available at the Dafabet sportsbook.

Tip: Total Goals Under 2.5 @ 1.83

In the last nine matches that Manchester United had played across all competitions, under 2.5 goals were scored in six of those matches. Wolverhampton has seen under 2.5 goals in all of the last eight matches that they have played across competitions. In even of the last ten head-to-head matches, under 2.5 goals were scored, with a total goal count of 16 goals at an average of 1.6 goals per match. Whenever Manchester United hosted, four of the last five head-to-head matches had under 2.5 goals scored in them. Apart from that, under 2.5 goals were scored in all of the last three matches that Wolverhampton has played on the road. So, it is very likely that under 2.5 goals will be scored at 1.83 odds available at the Betway sportsbook.


Manchester United has a chance to make it to the top four with a couple of wins, so they will be eyeing for all three points here. Wolves have done pretty well this season and would want to continue with the same momentum.
