English Premier League odds, August 29 picks: Best bets for Manchester United vs. Wolverhampton

Manchester United will try to bounce back from a disappointing draw when it visits Wolverhampton on Sunday for an English Premier League match at Molineux Stadium. Man U started with high hopes after another summer spending spree and kicked off with a 5-1 thumping of Leeds. But it followed that with a lackluster 1-1 draw with Southampton last Sunday. Then it made huge news Friday with an agreement to bring back Cristiano Ronaldo on a transfer from Juventus. He won’t play Sunday, but the news has last season’s second-place finishers on a high again. They face a Wolves team that has lost five straight league games.

Kickoff is set for 11:30 a.m. ET in Wolverhampton, England. Caesars Sportsbook lists Man U as the -127 favorite (risk $127 to win $100) in its latest Wolverhampton vs. Manchester United odds, with Wolves the +390 underdog and a draw priced at +250. The over-under for total goals scored is set at 2.5.

Why you should back Manchester United 

The Red Devils can set the Premier League record if they go unbeaten for a 28th straight match (17-10-0), and they beat Wolves 2-1 at Molineux to close last season. They are 3-3-0 in the last six meetings between the teams, and Wolverhampton has lost five of its last seven league matches at home. Manchester United was actually a better team when it went on the road last season, going 12-7-0 and scoring 19 more than it conceded while posting a 9-4-6 mark at plus-10 at Old Trafford. Wolves scored just 21 goals in their 19 home matches, going 7-4-8.

Man U is trying to get a win in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 100th match with the team, and he is 52-28-19. Only Ernest Mangnall (54) won more in his first 100 matches with the club. Bruno Fernandes started the season off right, netting a hat trick against Leeds, and Mason Greenwood has been a major threat for the Red Devils. The 19-year-old has scored in both matches, while Paul Pogba already has five assists. Fernandes tied for third in the league with 18 goals and was second with 12 assists last season, and Greenwood had seven goals in 21 starts.   

Why you should back Wolverhampton

Wolverhampton hasn’t lost consecutive home league meetings with Man U since 1967, and while it hasn’t scored yet this season, it is second in the league in shots. It has 42, second only to Liverpool’s 46, and is tied for sixth-most shots on target (nine) of the 20 teams. It’s a matter of time before an attack led by Raul Jimenez starts making those shots count, and United has conceded in eight of its last nine matches. Jimenez was on pace for a third straight season with double-digit goals, with four in 10 matches, last year before a serious head injury sidelined him.

He is one of the most reliable strikers in the Premier League and is joined in attack by Adama Traore and Francisco Trincao. Traore is second in the league in shots with 10, just behind West Ham’s Michail Antonio (11), but has scored just twice in his last 74 shots in league play. The 21-year-old Trincao scored three goals and had two assists while starting only three of his 28 appearances for Barcelona last season. Wolves lost 1-0 to both Leicester and Tottenham, with one goal coming on a penalty, and goalkeeper Jose Sa has saved nine of 10 shots on net.
