Tip Wolves - Leicester
Wolves return from their winter break and need to get some points on the board. They start the weekend in ninth place and host Leicester City who are third. Wolves are four points behind the Europa League place and have this game in hand on Sheffield United who currently occupy that position. They are struggling for form with only one win in their last eight league and cup games. A busy time lies ahead of them with the Europa League returning next week but they need to get back into winning ways. Their only win this year was a 3-2 win at Southampton and they had to come from 2-0 down to get that. Home form isn't good either with just four points from the last four played in the Premier League. They did beat Manchester City though, so on their day they are a match for most teams.
Leicester City are in third and a win in this game will take them into second place, a point clear of Manchester City but from a game more. They haven't been quite as consistent this year as they were in October and November. Five league games in 2020 have produced two wins, two defeats and a draw with Chelsea. They are probably still kicking themselves for failing to get past Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup semi-final. Away league form saw them lose at Burnley last month but they come into this match having won six of their last eight away league games. This should be an exciting game and a double chance bet on Leicester to win or draw is the one to go for.
Key points Wolves - Leicester

Conclusion Wolves - Leicester
Wolves have a busy fixture list ahead of them with the Europa League tie against Espanyol on the horizon. Their form has dipped a bit of late and they need to get winning again if wanting European football next season. Leicester had a bit of a dip in form but are still battling it out with Manchester City for second place. Away form has been good this year, though they did lose at Burnley recently. A double chance bet on Leicester to win or draw is the one to place.
