Key Stats

  • Four of the last five league meetings between these two clubs have ended with both teams finding the back of the net, while both teams have scored in three of Wolves' last five outings and in five of Luton's last six fixtures.
  • These two teams played out a 1-1 draw in September's reverse league fixture and the hosts are without a win in their last six matches, while Luton have only won once during that same period which is why we're backing a 1-1 draw on Saturday.
  • Five of the last seven head-to-heads between Wolves and Luton in all competitions have produced under 2.5 goals, and four of the hosts' last six games have also witnessed fewer than three goals.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Odds favour the hosts

  • HOME: 1/1 (2.00) – 50%
  • DRAW: 29/10 (3.90) – 25.6%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Wolves are the expected winners of this game with a probability of 50%, and we tend to agree with the bookmakers on this one.

Wolves lost their last game at home to Bournemouth 1-0 and currently sit 12th in the table on 43 points, while Luton were thrashed 5-1 in their own backyard by Brentford last time out and sit third from bottom on 25 points.

Player to watch – Matheus Cunha

Matheus Cunha top scores for Wolves this season with 11 goals and the Brazilian has recently come back from an injury but could start against Luton after featuring from the bench in recent weeks.

Wolves are in the midst of a winless run and sometimes the only way out of a situation like that is to play more attacking football, hence the reason we have selected Cunha as our player to watch this weekend.

Can the Brazilian help end Wolves' winless run?

The Brazilian certainly has quality and while he still might not have convinced everyone that he was worth such a huge transfer fee, the Wolves' faithful seem to love him and he has improved this season.
