Manchester City vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers Betting Preview – EPL, March 2, 2021

| March 2, 2021 9:30 am PDT

Manchester City seems to be unstoppable at the moment – and on Tuesday, it will be Wolverhampton Wanderers’ turn to try to stop the home side’s run to the title.

Wolves have been a bit hit and miss this season, and most neutrals will be expecting City to finish the night off with another three points.

Manchester City vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers Odds

Manchester City to Win-556
The Draw+490
Wolverhampton Wanderers to Win+1500

These are some big odds that BetOnline is offering for a Wolves win on Tuesday. But they are completely understandable considering just how well Manchester City is playing. There will be some that are tempted by the away win bet – or even the draw – but it will be a surprise if City’s incredible winning streak doesn’t continue.

Manchester City vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers Match Analysis

West Ham had been one of the form sides in the Premier League, so when David Moyes took his side to the Etihad at the weekend, it should have been one of the trickier fixtures for City in the last few months. The 2-1 scoreline suggests that the game was fairly close – but in reality, the home side didn’t really have to shift into top gear to win the game.

Guardiola was able to give Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne starting places after they had both recovered from injury, but neither really sparkled – but nor did they have to. It was the center backs that scored the goals for the home side – and it is that kind of threat from all over the field that has the rest of the EPL in Manchester City’s wake right now.

On paper, Wolves should not really pose too much of a problem for City. The Black Country club has looked lackluster for much of this season, after the injury sustained by Raul Jimenez, and there doesn’t seem to be much hope of anything more impressive than a mid-table finish.

The draw with Newcastle on Saturday will be disappointing, as the home side was forced to finish the game without star player Allan Saint-Maximin after he went off injured in the second half. A point against a struggling team is not a cause for optimism. What will be more pleasing for manager Nuno Espirito Santo is the five-game unbeaten run his side has been on in February.

Wolves hadn’t won any of its previous eight, so this form has ensured that there probably won’t be a relegation battle to contend with now.

Manchester City vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers Pick

  • Manchester City to Win

Manchester City has now won 20 games in a row, and it would seem very unlikely that a side like Wolves will be the one to stop that impressive run of form. It is incredible to think that City was ninth in the table before that – and that there were questions over Guardiola’s ability to change things successfully. He has made a mockery of that criticism and should be celebrating another three points on Tuesday.
