The second round of the EPL ends on Monday night, and here is our England Premier League Betting Prediction for the tilt between Wolves and Manchester United. The Red Devils are traveling to Wolverhampton to take on the Wolves after an impressive 4-0 victory over Chelsea in the opener. Wolves, on the other hand, played a stalemate with Leicester City in the first round of the EPL season, and now are hoping to score the first goal in 2019-20.

Wolves Team News and Latest Form
Wolves started their Premier League (PL) season with an underwhelming 0-0 draw at Leicester City. They will be hoping to continue their impressive run of 13 competitive home games undefeated (W11, D2). Notably, ten of those games saw them score two or more goals.
With eight goals in Europa League qualifiers against Pyunik, the Wolves attack is already firing on all cylinders, showing no obvious fatigue. They have played five competitive matches so far this season, winning four (W4, D1). Impressively they scored exactly four goals in three of those victories.
Diogo Jota netted in Wolves’ UEL fixture on Thursday. He also scored in both games vs United at Molineux last season.
Santo Espirito doens’t have any injury-related concerns. All of the players are healthy and at his disposal to face United on Monday.
Manchester United Team News and Latest Form
After a big home win last time out vs Chelsea (4-0), Manchester United are eager to correct the wrongs of last season – especially away from home. They failed to win any of their final six competitive away matches last season (D1, L5) conceding two or more goals in each of those five defeats.
Furthermore, United have lost three of their previous four visits to the Molineux Stadium (W1, L3). Strikingly, all three defeats came by the same 2-1 scoreline. In fact, both teams have scored in seven of the last eight H2H meetings.
Marcus Rashford scored a brace last weekend against Chelsea and he scored United’s consolation goal in the FA Cup fixture between the sides in March. United’s final two away league goals last season came in the opening 15 minutes. The Red Devils faced the second-highest number of shots (17) in the EPL last weekend.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer cannot count on Eric Bailly (knee) and Timothy Fosu-Mensah (knee). Alexis Sanchez is lacking match fitness and is doubtful to play.
Wolves vs Manchester United Head to Head
Manchester United won six of the previous ten H2H encounters (D1, L3), but they are without a win in the last three. Wolves were better in three of the last four duels at Molineux. They recorded a couple identical 2-1 victories last season at home (FA Cup and EPL). Both H2H meetings at Molineux last season produced a combined total of 15 cards (14 yellow, one red).
Wolves vs Manchester United Premier League Betting Prediction
Even seven of the previous eight H2H clashes produced goals on both ends. Despite the fact that both rivals managed to keep their net intact in the opener, I expect to see goals each way here. My Premier League Betting Prediction for the match between Wolves and Manchester United is BTTS at 1.90 (-111).
