Should Wolves be odds-on to win this Premier League match on Saturday? After all, their record against fellow strugglers last season was pretty shabby, with Mick McCarthy’s team reserving some of their best home performances against the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City.
Wanderers are 19/20 (Paddy Power – £100 free bets) to win against Rangers after a decent start to the season which has seen them beat Blackburn and Fulham before drawing with Aston Villa and losing at home to Tottenham last weekend.
McCarthy declared himself happy with that performance despite the defeat and we are likely to see Steven Fletcher (6/1 Victor Chandler – £25 free bets) and Kevin Doyle (7/1) continue in attack for Wolves, with Matthew Jarvis causing problems from out wide.
Queens Park Rangers did not have the ideal summer, with takeover talks depriving Neil Warnock the chance to make signings before the season began, although Tony Fernandes is at the helm now and the cash has been splashed.
Several new players made their debuts on Monday against Newcastle in a match that Rangers should really have won and they will be confident of avoiding defeat at Molineux, with Stan James offering a best price 13/5 about the game ending all square.
Warnock is likely to name an attacking line-up and will be reminding Joey Barton to keep his cool after the midfielder was targeted by Wolves when playing for Newcastle last season. Jay Bothroyd was guilty of missing some glorious chances against the Magpies and he is 8/1 to make amends.
