Leeds vs Wolves Bet Builder Tip 1: Wolves First Half
For the first leg of our selection, we are predicting Wolves to head into the break with the lead.
This is largely based on two key metrics, the first of which being Wolves were considerably stronger in the first half than Leeds last season, and a table based solely on their second half form would have seen them finish five places lower.
Secondly, while Leeds fans will be enthused by a fresh season now Jesse Marsch can stamp his imprint on the team, their home form was abysmal last season. The Whites won just four of their 19 games at Elland Road, while Wolves’ away record was significantly better than their home form, a statistic that would have seen them finish seventh if home form was removed.
Leeds vs Wolves Bet Builder Tip 2: Both Teams to Score
While we think Wolves will frustrate Leeds in the first half, we are expecting the match to see both sides get on the scoresheet.
The repeat of this fixture last season saw a cagey 1-1 draw in Yorkshire, before the reverse at Molineux saw an incredible 3-2 victory for Leeds courtesy of a 90th minute winner from Luke Ayling; this may well have contributed to their narrow survival.

Leeds vs Wolves Bet Builder Tip 3: Match to be a Draw
Lastly, we are going out on a limb and predicting a share of the spoils.
As mentioned, both fixtures last year were very evenly matched despite Leeds claiming victory back in March. Both sides are heavily reliant on their counter-attacking abilities and we think this will translate into an entertaining fixture with very little separating the two.
