Wolves vs Crystal Palace: Preview, Prediction & Betting Picks

Wolves host Crystal Palace in the Premier League, with both looking to pick up three points to finish the season as strong as possible.

Date: 5/11/24

Kick-off time: 5:00 am Pacific Time

ET Venue: Molineux

With two games remaining, neither side has much to play for, though they'll be hoping for as high a finish in the table as they can. Wolves currently occupy 11th place, but are just two points off Bournemouth in 10th, and three off West Ham in ninth. This means they still have a shot at finishing in the top half, which would be an excellent achievement for a side that was predicted to struggle before the season began. Victory would keep that hope alive heading into the final game, but defeat would make it a difficult task.

Similarly, Palace are in mid-table looking to climb. They sit 14th, though anything higher seems unlikely. However, their fans won't care too much as they successfully navigated their way out of a relegation battle. After looking like they could be seriously dragged into a fight numerous times throughout the campaign, they'll end up surviving quite comfortably, having already hit 40 points.

This game should be a tight affair, though Palace have had more success scoring goals lately. In their last three games, they've scored eight goals, including five against West Ham. They've been able to lean on the excellent form of Jean-Philippe Mateta, who scored four of those. Wolves also have some threats of their own, with the recent return of Hwang Hee-Chan providing a huge boost. The South Korean is their top scorer with 12 goals so far, while Matheus Cunha is not far behind with 11.

Since 2021, these two sides have met six times in the Premier League, and it's a matchup that has been dominated by Crystal Palace. Five out of six have been won by Palace, with Wolves' one win coming in a 2-0 victory late last season. Three of Palace's wins have come with clean sheets, though the reverse fixture earlier this season was a close but entertaining affair, as the hosts came out on top 3-2. All of the goals came in the second half, with Odsonne Edouard breaking the deadlock on the 56th minute. Hwang equalized shortly after, before Eberechi Eze and Edouard restored the lead and gave a cushion. Matheus Cunha pulled one back deep into stoppage time but it was too late for them to find an equalizer.

Form Guide

Wolves Form Guide

In their last five games, Wolves have won one, drawn one, and lost two. It's been a tough run for Wolves, though they could still finish in the top half of the table. This run started with a 2-2 draw away at Nottingham Forest. Both teams took a lead in this back-and-forth game. Matheus Cunha opened the scoring for the visitors, but Morgan Gibbs-White equalized on the stroke of halftime. Danilo turned it around for Forest shortly after the restart, though this goal was canceled out five minutes later by Cunha's second to ensure the points were shared.

A defeat at home to Arsenal followed. The possession was fairly even, but Wolves were dominated in shot attempts by their visitors. Leandro Trossard put the Gunners ahead on 45 minutes, and this is how it remained until deep into stoppage time when Martin Odegaard added a second. Another disappointing loss occurred the next week, as they lost 1-0 at home to Bournemouth. Antoine Semenyo gave the visitors the lead before halftime. The Cherries were then reduced to 10 men with 11 minutes to go, but Wolves could not take advantage of their extra man.

They finally picked up a victory against struggling Luton. In the 2-1 win, Hwang Hee-Chan scored the opening goal, before Toti Gomes added another after the restart. Carlton Morris pulled one back to threaten late on, but the visitors could not complete the comeback. Their most recent game was a difficult trip to the Etihad to take on Man City. The champions were convincing 5-1 winners, with Erling Haaland netting four goals. Julian Alvarez scored the fifth while Hwang got the consolation.

Crystal Palace Form Guide

In their last four games, Crystal Palace have won three and drawn one. It has been an excellent stretch for Palace as they steered clear of the relegation zone. The run started in stunning fashion as they beat Liverpool 1-0 at Anfield. The decisive goal came after just 14 minutes when Eberechi Eze completed an impressive team move. Both teams rued many chances to get on the scoresheet, but neither were able to alter the scoreline. They then hosted West Ham and they crushed them 5-2. They were 4-0 up after 30 minutes with goals from Michael Olise, Eze, and Jean-Philippe Mateta. Emerson Palmieri also scored an own goal. Another goal for Mateta meant they managed to see the game out comfortably in the second half.

A third consecutive victory followed against Newcastle. They dominated in shot attempts, though their visitors edged the possession. Mateta’s brace proved the difference in the 2-0 win. Their first dropped points came away from home at Fulham. Rodrigo Muniz broke the deadlock in the 52nd minute, and this was a lead Fulham held onto until late, when Jeffrey Schlupp netted a leveller with three minutes to go.

Before they take on Wolves at the weekend, Palace play Manchester United on Monday Night Football hoping to secure another three points.

FlashPicks Prediction

There is very little riding on this game, though Wolves have an outside chance of finishing in the top half of the table. However, we expect there to be nothing to split these two teams, with both getting on the scoresheet – Wolves 1-1 Crystal Palace
