Wolves vs Tottenham Betting Tips
Here are our best tips for the match and we also have a range of other markets available:
Wolves made a great start to life in the Premier League following promotion by picking up 15 points from their first eight matches.
They only lost once in that opening spell, at Leicester, and hit the woodwork twice during that game as they were unlucky to be on the end of a 2-0 reverse.
They were the first team to take points off Manchester City with a 1-1 home draw and should have won at Old Trafford during a 1-1 stalemate with Manchester United.
However, a third of their goals conceded have come in the last two defeats with Wolves also failing to hit the back of the net since October 6.
They have kept clean sheets in each of their four league victories this season and can be difficult to break down so a potential 23/10 home win cannot be ruled out, particularly with just once loss at Molineux - last time out against Watford.
However, with a team boasting the international talents of Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Lucas Moura, it is hard to see the visitors not taking maximum points.
Spurs have won five of their six away games in the league with their only defeat coming during a tepid performance at Watford.
They dismantled Manchester United at Old Trafford and average 1.83 goals scored per match on their travels, in comparison to just 1.25 at home.
A playable pitch could help Tottenham's attack impetus - following Wembley's torn-up surface on Monday - and with all six of their away league matches seeing a maximum of three goals, 19/10 for Pochettino's team to collect three points with under 3.5 goals looks very appealing in the first of our free football tips.

First goalscorer tips
Harry Kane has netted five goals in 10 Premier League matches this campaign and the 25-year-old will hope to improve his stunning goalscoring record on Saturday evening.
The England captain has scored 25 goals in 23 matches against promoted teams since breaking into the Spurs line-up and he is price-boosted to 4/1 to open the scoring, which the striker has done at Manchester United, Brighton and Huddersfield this season.
Anytime goalscorer tips
Erik Lamela has only played 253 Premier League minutes this season but he has three goals to his name and could get on the scoresheet once more.
The Argentina international scored the winner at West Ham last weekend, as he did at Brighton in September, and has also netted against Liverpool, Watford and Barcelona to take his tally to five goals in 10 matches in all competitions, and 3/1 at anytime looks interesting even if he starts on the bench.
Where the game will be won or lost
Tottenham are in the midst of a tiring run of fixtures as they continue to compete on three fronts before they enter the FA Cup after the New Year.
The Molineux clash will be their fifth game of a six-match sequence inside 17 days and also the fourth on their travels. However, they have started strongly in majority of away matches in domestic football with the statistics supporting our second tip in our Wolves vs Tottenham predictions.
Spurs have led at half-time in four of their six Premier League away matches and Wolves have conceded three of their five home goals during the opening 45 minutes so for Pochettino's side to have an advantage at the break is tempting at 9/5.
Much was questioned about Tottenham's lack of investment during the summer and with a lot of the Spurs players at the World Cup too, this run of games could be a helping hand for hosts.
This coincides with the last of our free football tips which is for both teams to score in the second half at 21/10.
Wolves have scored in the second half in four of their five home games and with the set-piece quality of Ruben Neves, in addition to the physical presence of Willy Boly, Ryan Bennett and Raul Jimenez, it would not be a surprise if the hosts remained in the clash with a goal.
Forward Diogo Jota is ruled out for Wolves with a minor problem, meaning they may yet be unchanged.
Tottenham will be without Eric Dier (thigh) and Danny Rose (groin). Victor Wanyama (knee) and Jan Vertonghen (hamstring) also continue to miss out.

Traders' Tips - View from the trading floor
Wolves may have lost their last two games but we feel it was just a blip and they can take advantage of Tottenham's hectic fixture schedule by getting back to winning ways. Wanderers are strong at Molineux, where they have lost just once, and held Manchester City here earlier in the season.
