Wolves narrowly lost their Championship opener at Leeds but Stale Solbakken’s team can bounce back straight away by collecting all three points as they welcome Barnsley to Molineux.
Admittedly the Tykes got their campaign off to a decent start, edging out Middlesbrough 1-0 at Oakwell but a tough old season is nevertheless on the cards for Keith Hill’s charges and they can come unstuck in the Black Country, a result William Hill offer at 8/11.
The hosts also tempt at 2/1 via Ladbrokes to prevail ‘to nil’ but elsewhere across a tough-to-call bunch of fixtures, it’s a plethora of goals rather than a lack of them that could reap dividends.
At Vicarage Road for example, Watford and Ipswich look a banker at 5/6 courtesy of Stan James to produce three or more between them. The Hornets have goals in them, having struck three times at the weekend while Ipswich have firepower enough to break down the hosts’ brittle rearguard.
Similarly, Leeds showed enough in attack against Wolves to suggest they can notch at least once against Blackpool, who demonstrated their prowess going forward at Millwall on Saturday. The pair have to be fancied then at 8/11 with Skybet to conjure up more than 2.5 goals between them and doubling that fixture up with the Watford clash comes in at 21/10 (bet365).
