We end this next round of Premier League games with Leicester City travelling to in-form Wolves.

City come here after a recent 2-2 draw with West Ham, while Wolves will be buzzing after their 0-2 away win over Spurs.

The match betting suggests a tight game, with Wolves just edging it at 2.30, the draw 3.25 and Leicester 3.25.

The sides met earlier this season and that resulted in a 1-0 home win for Leicester, while this repeat fixture last term ended in a 0-0 stalemate. You can back a repeat of that goalless draw at 8.50.

In fact, the neutrals out there won’t like to hear it, but 3 of the last 5 meetings ended up 0-0, including the last two repeat fixtures.

So, with that in mind, it won’t come as a shock to hear that the last five head-to-heads went UNDER 1.5 GOALS, while Both Teams ‘DIDN’T’ score in the last 5 clashes either.

You can back Under 2.50 goals at 1.66, or Under 1.5 Goals at 3.20, while one (or both) of the sides to keep a clean sheet is available at 1.80.

It’s also a slight shock to see that Wolves haven’t actually scored in the last 5 head-to-heads!

This season, Wolves strikers Jimenez and Hee-Chan Hwang have scored 5 and 4 goals respectively in the league – they are on offer at 5.00 (1st) or 2.37 (anytime) and 7.50 (1st) or 3.40 (anytime). Looking at Leicester, Jamie Vardy often does well when facing Wolves, but the former England striker has been plagued with injury this season and is unlikely to figure. Therefore, the likes of Youri Tielemans, who has scored 6 league goals this season, might be worth a second glance at 12.00 (1st) or 5.00 (anytime).
