Can we trust Manchester City to win this game? Many football accumulator bets will include the visitors to come away from Wolves with a victory, although we might want to judge their performance against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League before deciding whether they should be included on our bet slip.

Since winning 2-0 at West Ham in their opening Premier League clash, the Cityzens have failed to land a win at Newcastle or Aston Villa. They came from behind to draw 3-3 at St James’ Park before taking the lead at Villa Park before the Midlands side were able to equalise and then hold on for a precious point.

The Premier League betting sites award City a 75% probability and customers have to weigh up whether that is worth taking. While Wolves are only averaging a point per match, they are unbeaten at Molineux so far, with Nathan Collins and Max Kilman having excellent seasons in central defence.

Indeed, the Midlands side are enjoying a three-match unbeaten run in the top flight, with a 1-1 draw against Newcastle followed by a goalless draw at Bournemouth and a 1-0 win over the Saints, with Lage hoping his team can rack up a third consecutive clean sheet against a dangerous opposition.

We think that there could be some merit in backing Wolves on the Asian Handicap even if you don’t want to oppose Manchester City on the 1x2 betting market. Wanderers are capable of keeping things tight and it might even be worth perming the 1-0 and 2-0 wins for the visitors as part of a low-scoring clash. Diego Costa has just arrived at Molineux and could end up playing a cameo role in this clash.
