Bet of the Day: Wolves to comfortably win the derby

They should be too strong for Birmingham

It’s only December but it’s already hard to see any other club pipping Wolves to the Championship title this season.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side look like a Premier League team in-waiting. They’ve racked up five straight wins in the Championship, scoring 15 goals while only conceding two during that run.

They say anything can happen in a derby, but it’s hard to see Birmingham City getting anything out of this one. Home advantage may not even help – Wolves have won the last two meetings at St Andrew’s.

The Blues did well to draw against Sheffield United in their last outing. But a resounding away win looks on the cards here.

The Coral Bet of the Day is Wolves to win with a -1.0 Handicap at 21/10.

Birmingham Blank?

Birmingham have failed to score in five of their last seven games. They could struggle to break down a strong Wolves side.

Only Cardiff City (13 goals conceded) have a better defensive record than Wolves (17 goals conceded) in the Championship this season.

Wolves to Win to Nil is 7/4.

Jota Joy

Diogo Jota’s made an instant impact at Wolves this season. The on-loan winger has already scored nine goals in the league.

He’s in red-hot form heading into this game. The 20-year-old has bagged a goal in each of his last two appearances. Will he make it three in three?

Jota is 13/10 to score Anytime.
