Wolves vs ArsenalEnglish Premier League, KO: 17:30 Jul 4, 2020, Molineux
Saturday's tea-time offering from the Premier League comes from Molineux where Wolves go toe-to-toe with Arsenal.
Nuno Espirito Santo's side have taken maximum points from each of three league fixtures since the resumption to boost their hopes of another foray into Europe next term.
Many pundits believed that Wolves' lean squad would struggle to cope with the demands of having to contend with both continental and domestic football, however, the Old Gold are arguably the team that have benefited the most from the enforced break.
This weekend the Black Country outfit will come up against an Arsenal side who themselves will still harbour ambitions of qualifying for next season's Europa League.
Mikel Arteta's appointment appeared to have sparked a sense of optimism in north London, however, back-to-back defeats away at Man City and Brighton will have brought the Gunners faithful crashing back down to earth.
However, Arsenal have bounced back from those setbacks by putting both Southampton and Norwich to the sword either side of a 2-1 FA Cup Quarter Final success away at Sheffield United last weekend.
Arsenal are 12/5 with UniBet to make it back-to-back away wins in the Premier League for the first time this season.
I've successfully backed Arsenal to score in each of their last two road trips and I fancy the Gunners to be the first side to breach Wolves' well-schooled backline since the Premier League came out of cold storage.
There is little value in backing a solitary Arsenal strike at 4/9 with Bet 365, however, given Arsenal's well-documented defensive deficiencies, value could lie in backing both teams to score at 10/11 with the same bookmaker.
Indeed, Santo's side have registered seven shutouts in their last eight league games, however, the Gunners have got on the scoresheet in all but one of their last 11 fixtures across all competitions.
What's more, five of the north Londoners' last seven top-flight tussles have produced over 2.5 strikes and the amount of flair and pace that both sides possess in forward areas adds to the appeal of backing both teams to make the net bulge in the Midlands.
That line of thought has also lured me towards the card markets given that Arsenal are the most ill-disciplined side in the English top-flight having racked up 68 yellows in 32 outings – an average of just over two cards per-game.
I'm happy to back the capital club to collect a couple of cards in this contest and adding at least one Wolves booking will give us a nice looking 20/21 shot when making use of Bet 365's Bet Builder feature.
Wolves have picked up at least one card in each of their outings since the resumption and when it comes to considering which individuals could have their name taken it won't come as a surprise that I will be looking towards the left side of Arsenal's defence.
An astronomical number of left-backs have been booked this season when directly coming up against Wolves winger Adama Traore and Arsenal's Kieran Tienrey 11/2 (Betway) looks overpriced for a caution on Saturday evening should the Scotsman be given the thankless task of trying to shackle the Molineux flying-machine.
