Two of the Championship’s strongest sides take to the pitch to do battle at Craven Cottage this weekend and we will try to predict a winner in our free Fulham vs Wolverhampton Wanderers preview. The home team have been in the mesmerizing form on their own patch of late, though their mettle will be tested to full on Saturday against the division leaders.
In the run-up to this week’s free Fulham vs Wanderers betting tips, the Cottagers have won five of their most recent six fixtures. Their form in at their London home has been even more impressive – this weekend they will be gunning for their eight straight win at Craven Cottage. The form of 17-year-old Ryan Sessegnon has been central to their success. The highly sought after youngster has scored five times in his last three appearances for Fulham at the Cottage alone.
After a sticky January where they won just one of their five matches, Wolverhampton Wanderers have picked up the pace again in February. The table toppers have won three of their last four matches, taking maximum points from their clashed with Ipswich, Sheffield United and QPR. Wolves have only tasted defeat twice in sixteen away Championship fixtures in 2017/18. That away form is examined in more detail in our English football predictions further down.
Although both of the teams under scrutiny in today’s Fulham vs Wolverhampton Wanderers bets are in fine form, the home side are riding a particularly huge wave of positivity as we approach the game. The Cottagers have been playing really well for approximately two months now and they have lost just once in eleven matches since the end of December.
Having won seven games in a row at Craven Cottage, Slaviša Jokanović’s players look like they are peaking at just the right time. The Serbian’s squad must feel like they can beat anyone at the moment. For all their success, Wolves have only won one of their last four away games, so they will be feeling a little vulnerable ahead of their trip south to the capital.
Fulham have already beaten second-placed Cardiff and third-placed Aston Villa since Christmas and we’re backing them to get at least a point against the runaway league leaders this weekend. Taking the double chance home win/draw option gives you great insurance and Betfair have the best Championship odds around for that market. You won’t find better value at any of their competitors.
Each of the teams under the microscope in this week’s Fulham vs Wolverhampton Wanderers predictions have little trouble finding the net with regularity. The Cottagers have now scored in ten of their last eleven matches. The only time they failed to score was in their 0-1 FA Cup defeat to Premiership side Southampton in the first week of January.
Serendipitously, Wolves’ recent goal scoring stats mirror those of their hosts this weekend. They too have failed to score just once in their last eleven outings, though it was fellow Championship team Barnsley who kept them out at Oakwell on January 13th. Nuno Espirito Santo’s defence have only kept two clean sheets in six, however.
Historically, these teams tend to share the goals quite evenly between them. Wolves have generally had the upper hand results-wise, but both teams have scored in three of their last four duels with each other. With both clubs keen to maintain their recent momentum, there should be plenty of attacking football for the fans to enjoy on Saturday. With that considered, backing both teams to score is a smart bet. Unibet have some terrific odds to consider for that outcome.
