|Wolves (-143) @ pinnacle|
I'm playing on WOLVERHAMPTON. The line on Wolverhampton came down from its opener, providing us with some extra line value on the superior squad. Given the gap between these teams, I feel that it easily could have gone the other way. The Wolves have indeed been disappointed with their campaign. They sit 12th in the standings and had absolutely hoped for better. They're off an exciting 1-0 win last time out though and while that win cost them Neto due to injury, I expect them to carry the momentum into this game. I like the fact that they scored late, kept fighting and found a way to win. Sheffield sits last in the standings with relegation a certainty. United has scored just 17 goals (Wolverhamption has 31) while allowing 55. Sheffiled continues to deal with several important injuries including captain Billy Sharp. Highlights have been few and far between for Sheffield but Sharp has provided them with a few. He'll be missed here. Off the late win against Fulham, Wolverhampton boss Nuno Espirito Santo noted: "The win was very important. This is what we want for the rest of the season, there are a lot of games to be played ... " Having been outscored 10-1 its last three league matches, Sheffield has essentially packed it in. Wolverhampton won the last meeting 2-0 and won't be denied another victory here.
