Wolves v Burnley – Free betting tips

For Wolves and Burnley, things have not gone particularly well heading to round 15 of the 2023/24 Premier League season.  Wolves are 13th overall with 15 points from 14 games, while Burnley are in the second-last spot with seven points from 14 outings. Will Burnley turn their fortunes in this upcoming encounter?

The following are the top free Wolves v Burnley predictions.

Total match goals prediction – Under 2.5 Goals

This will be no easy game for either side as they battle against the possibility of a relegation battle at the end of the season. Vincent Kompany's Burnley are particularly in a worse position, so at least a point will be highly appreciated by the Clarets. For Wolves, this is a home game, so Molineux is expected to be a fortress. We foresee a tough clash so Under 2.5 goals is highly probable.

First team to score prediction – Wolves to score first

In the second Wolves v Burnley prediction, we expect the first goal to come from Wolves. At Molineux, Wolves have always given their all. They are ranked sixth in the home form while the Clarets are the fourth-worst away team. We think Wolves will have the advantage to open the scoring when they host Burnley.

Correct score prediction – 1-0 to Wolves

In the final Wolves v Burnley prediction, we tip another difficult day for the Clarets. With just five goals scored in five trips and 12 conceded, Burnley's run on the road has earned the Clarests only one win and four points. We do not expect much from the visitors on this trip. Burnley have won only once in the recent five trips to Molineux while Wolves bagged eight points in the last five home matches against the Clarets.
