Wolves vs LeedsEnglish Premier League, KO: 20:00 Feb 19, 2021, Molineux
WOLVES will be looking to land back-to-back Premier League wins when they lock horns with Leeds at Molineux on Friday night.
The Old Gold have struggled for consistency this term but Nuno Espirito Santo will be hoping that last Sunday's 2-1 success at Southampton will act as a springboard to reignite his side's season.
That morale-boosting victory at St Mary's means that Wolves are now unbeaten in three Premier League matches and they will look to keep the feelgood factor flowing when Leeds come to town.
Marcelo's Bielsa's men arrive at Molineux off the back of a first-half horror show at the Emirates last Sunday, on afternoon where Arsenal ran out 4-2 victors.
Leeds have attracted widespread praise for their cavalier approach, but on occasions this season it has been their undoing.
Having said that, dealing with Leeds high-tempo style is no easy task and it's worth noting that the Whites boast one of the best road records in the division this season.
Wolves won the reverse fixture earlier in the season and a repeat of that outcome here pays 13/8 with UniBet.
Leeds have triumphed in three of their last five top-flight road trips and a Whites win on Friday night is trading at 19/10 with TonyBet, while the stalemate is priced up at 9/4 with the same firm.
Marcelo Bielsa's team have been the great entertainers in the Premier League this season, however, the Whites don't have a particularly watertight defence.
Leeds, for all their attacking brilliance, do boast the joint second-worst defensive record in the division and that's something I'm going to factor into the Bet 365 Bet Builder I like the look of on Friday night.
If we combine over zero Wolves goals and over three Leeds corners we can get some 4/5 (Bet 365) and that betting angle makes appeals.
Bielsa's brittle backline have bagged just one clean sheet across their last eight matches in all competitions and it's worth noting that it's just two shutouts in nine road trips for the Yorkshire outfit.
With that in mind, coupled with Wolves' recent upturn in fortunes, I'll happily back Nuno's men to make the net bulge at Molineux on Friday night.
In order to get the above-mentioned Bet Builder up to 4/5 (Bet 365), I'll also back Leeds to hit over three corners – the visitors 11 match corners per game average is the highest tally in the top-flight this term.
What's more, Leeds have hit four or more flag kicks in each of their last 13 Premier League matches and I see no reason to oppose a repeat here on night where the away side are expected to dominate possession for long stages.
I'll also dip into the anytime goalscorer market and back new Wolves striker Willian Jose to get on the scoresheet at 12/5 with PaddyPower.
The bustling Brazilian is still to break his duck in a Wolves shirt but I reckon that could change on Friday night when faced with a leaky Leeds defence that tends to struggle with physical opposition.
