In a sentence: Table-toppers Wolves host Derby in fifth with 21 points seperating the sides. 

Last time: The last game at Molineux between these sides ended as a 3-2 win for Derby, who had a Tom Ince double and a goal from Darren Bent to thank for the three points. Helder Cota and David Edwards netted the home side’s goals. 

This time: Wolves are 8/13 to win here, while Derby are 5/1 and the draw is 11/4. 

You might remember: A 2-0 win for Wolves in March 2015 where Nouha Dicko gave the home side the lead before an own goal by keeper Lee Grant sealed the win for the Wanderers. It’s worth bearing in mind in this Championship preview that Derby do have the better of the recent head-to-heads, winning four of the last seven games between the sides, while Wolves have won three.

Betting Tips & Predictions

Wolves could secure the Championship title if they win both their games this week, which is a huge motivation ahead of this fixture against Derby

Wolves are flying high at the top of the table and have promotion and the Championship title in their hands, as they can wrap it up if they win both their games this week against Derby and Birmingham. Their last game was an important 1-0 win over their nearest rivals Cardiff on Friday night, which left the Welsh side nine points behind them. 

Derby have won their last two games including a big 3-0 win over Bolton at the weekend and are firmly in the play-off positions. Derby lost 2-0 to Wolves in their home game earlier in the season. Another 2-0 win here for Wolves has odds of 6/1. 

Wolves are 8/13 to win this game and are unbeaten in their last six games at home. They have lost just twice at Molineux in total this season in the league, which is something to consider when making any football predictions for this game. 

Derby are 5/1 to take the three points but have won just once in their last six games away from home, drawing four of them. They have won eight times on their travels in the Championship this season. 

The draw is 11/4 and Derby are something of a stalemate specialist, drawing 14 games this season while Wolves have just eight to their name. A 1-1 draw here has odds of 6/1 and is worth a look at for any football score predictions. 

The league’s top goalscorer Matej Vydra of Derby is a decent 8/1 to open the scoring and is someone to consider when making any Championship predictions about the first goalscorer. 

Wolves’ top scorer Diogo Jota is 4/1 to net the first goal of the game and is another name to consider when making any football score predictions. 

Match Summary

1

Look out for:

Hungry Wolves. The home side should be too strong for Derby as they look to take the three points and edge themselves closer to the Championship title and promotion. The best free football betting tips in this game would focus on a home win, with a 2-1 Wolves win at 15/2. 

2

We fancy:

A score/win double of Jota/Wolves, which has odds of 7/4 and is a decent shout for any football predictions for today. Jota has found the back of the net 14 times for Wanderers this season and is 13/2 to score two or more goals. 

3

It’s a long shot, but:

Scottish defender Barry Douglas has scored four goals this season and scored in the 2-0 win at Pride Park earlier in the campaign. He can be found at around 16/1 to score the first goal of the game.
