Wolves v Everton Odds

Nuno Espirito Santo has brought in a raft of new Portuguese faces at Wolves, and has let go some of the players that helped them to the Championship title last season, but he will have his work cut out to try and mould them into a team, and while they could ultimately be challenging for a top-half finish at the end of the season they may just take a few matches to get up to full speed.

Marco Silva will be aiming to show Wolves that it's not as easy as last season, and his Everton side have shuffled their squad around, as Silva has tried to get rid of some of the older, more experienced players including Wayne Rooney, ahead of the new season, and he has brought in some younger players.

So, while he will have the same issue in trying to get his players to perform as a team, it could be that this game sees both teams fail to fire on all cylinders, and while many will fancy the 13/10 with Paddy Power for a home win, the more attractive bet is the 23/10 about a draw with BetVictor.

Everton have a dismal opening day win record having only won five of their last 20 opening day matches, so the away win is unlikely, but they can run their hosts close, and the 23/10 about a draw is the way to go, as it's the same price with some firms for an away win.

Raul Jimenez will aim to shine for Wolves in the league this season, and he is the 9/2 favourite with Coral to score the first goal, while Leo Bonatini is a point bigger at 11/2 with Ladbrokes to net first. But, it would be no surprise to see Everton take the lead and Oumar Niasse has often shone in front of goal, and at 13/2 with Unibet looks a decent bet in the first goalscorer market in what should be an entertaining clash.

In terms of the correct score market, it should be a game where both teams score, so while the 11/2 with Betfred for a 1-1 draw is favourite it looks the most likely finish, with both teams taking a point, and both most importantly avoiding an opening game defeat.
