One to Watch: Adama Traore

How long can Wolves keep their record signing on the bench? After his last-gasp winner against West Ham and his obvious explosive attributes, the Wanderers have a dangerous weapon waiting to be unleashed.

A home game against Burnley looks to be the ideal opportunity for Traore to get additional minutes. The Spain native is sure to be popping up in Premier League predictions throughout the season, and he is 9/2 to score anytime with 888sport.

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Burnley Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Leo Bonatini is just one of the goal threats in this exciting Wolves side, as they hunt for a win against struggling Burnley

With contrasting fortunes recently, this Premier League preview see a developing Wolves side welcome a troubled Burnley.

Newly-promoted Wolves have made a promising start and have played better than their points return suggests. With five points from their opening five games, the Wanderers are unbeaten in their last three in all competitions and are starting to gain momentum. Hosting a struggling Burnley provides Wolves with a real opportunity to pick up a second consecutive league win. The weekend’s football prediction indicates a home win, and 10bet have Wolves as 4/5 favourites.

Burnley have had a forgetful start to the new season. A low-key summer transfer window left the squad lacking depth; they have since been knocked out of the Europa League and are without a win in the top flight. The international break may have come at the ideal time for Sean Dyche and they will travel to Molineux knowing that they are being written off. It would not be the first time Burnley have upset the Premier League predictions, and the away team are 4/1 for the points.

Previous meetings during the 2015/16 season ended in two draws. Burnley will look to stifle the home side and grind out a result – with the away side in that kind of mood a draw would not come as too much of a surprise. You will get 4/1 for including a stalemate in your football predictions.  

The Wolves attack are favourites for the opening goal. Raul Jimenez and Leo Bonatini lead the way at 9/2 with Diogo Jota at 5/1. Chris Wood is best placed for Burnley at 7/1.

Predicted Score: Wolverhampton Wanderers 2 - 0 Burnley
