Wolverhampton faces Crystal Palace on Monday, July 20th at Molineux Stadium for an English Premier League match.
Wolverhampton is coming off one of the most disappointing results of their season, and no, it was not a loss. Wolverhampton took on the defensive-minded Burnley squad that was missing many pieces due to injury. To make matters worse for Burnley, Jay Rodriguez left the game early in the second half holding his leg and shin. Wolverhampton and Burnley both played their style of football, as neither team was given much breathing room or scoring opportunities with the ball in the first half. After a 0-0 first half, Raul Jimenez was finally able to crack the scoreboard for Wolves with a beautiful strike in the 76th minute. It seemed as if that goal would be enough, as Wolverhampton continued to control the match until added time. In added time, Burnley was awarded a penalty shot in the 90+6 minute due to a handball in the box. Chris Wood, who missed a wide-open header opportunity about a minute before, scored on the penalty shot to equalize the game at 1-1. That score would hold, and Wolverhampton was dealt a frustrating draw.
Crystal Palace is one of those teams in the Premier League that are just waiting for next season, as Palace is safe from relegation, but really has nothing to play for. Crystal Palace has not played good football at all recently, as the team has been shutout in four of their last five matches overall. It should not get any easier for Crystal Palace, as the team has to travel to Wolverhampton for this match. Wolverhampton's defense is as stingy as they get, and I expect Crystal Palace to struggle once again.
The last time Wolverhampton and Crystal Palace met was on September 22nd of 2019, in which the two teams drew 1-1 at Selhurst Park.
I think Wolverhampton is going to win this match quite comfortably. Crystal Palace has virtually given up on this season, and I cannot really blame them. I expect Wolverhampton to find a clean-sheet victory in this one, and I will take that prop bet at +115.
