Best bets for VSiN's Betcast: Wolves-Sheffield United

By Nigel Seeley  ( 

The VSiN EPL Betcasts are coming fast and furious, and on Saturday we’ll be bringing you live commentary from Molineux, where Wolves host Sheffield United at a later time of 3:15 p.m. ET.


Wolves were on last Friday's Betcast when they forced a last-gasp winner in their last match against Fulham. I think that was a morale-boosting goal and they should be bet to get back-to-back wins on Saturday at what looks a very generous -142 price.

Wolves have had an indifferent campaign, but Adama Traore's winner may just see both he and his team end the season on a high. The reason for this play isn’t because of how great Wolves have been, but just how bad their opponents are to close out the season.

Sheffield United are + 500 for the win and that isn't a price that would be carrying any of my cash.

The Blades have just 14 points all season and are they one of the worst -- if not the worst -- sides to play in the top flight.

United have pretty much given up for the season judging by their recent performances and keep giving away plenty of goal-scoring opportunities to their opponents, with 14 goals conceded in their last six matches (which have all ended in defeats).

United have lost 13 of their 15 road matches this season, including their last six, and in five of them they have failed to score.

There is a belief that Wolves may be a good side to face at this stage of the season with nothing to play for, but Nuno Espirito Santo is a sought-after manager with a proud resume to protect. He will be looking to end the season on a high and judging by the celebrations after the win at Fulham on Friday, they will be up for this one.

Wolves comfortably beat United on the first day of the season 2-0 in the reverse fixture. I was excepting them to be around -175 this time around, but -142 looks extremely fair value.

Last weekend, the goals across the EPL started to rise as the season comes to an end, but not the Betcast games with under 2.5 goals cashing in both of our featured matches (the only games to go under on last week's card).

Under 2.5 is the obvious call again on Saturday, but -175 doesn't look that attractive. The best way to play the unders is to bet on Wolves to win both 1-0 and 2-0 on the correct scores, which are available at + 500 and + 650.

Traore scored the winner against Fulham on Friday night and the Wolves winger is a huge threat when he is full of confidence. I recommended a wager on him to score in this match at + 275.
