Wolves vs Burnley odds
*Odds correct as of 15:00 on December 05
We’re still in the first half of the season, but Burnley already looks to be fighting a losing battle against an immediate return to the Championship. The Clarets are second from the bottom of the league with just seven points from their opening 14 games, even below Everton who suffered a points deduction. Vincent Kompany’s side have won just twice this season, beating Luton and Sheffield United last time out.
Wolves, meanwhile, went into the international break off the back of a fantastic win, coming from behind in injury time to beat Tottenham. It saw them return to winning ways after a defeat to Sheffield United, though they felt hard done by in that loss due to a late and controversial penalty. Gary O’Neil’s side are currently 13th with four wins to their name, three of which have come in their past seven matches. They are also just seven points behind eighth-placed Brighton and may feel optimistic about a good run.
