Ironically, Wolves are the current holders of the mythical “Everton Cup”, having finished seventh last season, way ahead of the Merseyside club.
The thing is, Carlo Ancelotti’s Toffees would argue that they are no longer interested in such an accolade, showing signs throughout this season of a team that could challenge the Champions League spots.
Wolves will be looking to bite a puncture in these aspirations under the Molineux floodlights.
This looks like a real pick ‘em and a potential standout fixture of the game week.
Check out our top Odds Picks for Tuesday’s match including a massive 13/1 shot.

Our Top Odds Pick – Wolves to win & BTTS – 9/2 at 888sport
Everton continue to blow hot and cold under Don Carlo.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side are looking good in seventh, but are still throwing away too many ‘winnable’ points against some of the league’s stragglers.
Wolves have had their wobbles too this season, but Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have still only lost three of their last 15 Premier League matches at Molineux.
There have been 16 goals in the last four meetings between these two sides, and this toing and froing in front of goal should continue on Tuesday.
Our Long Shot – Adama Traore to score first – 13/1 at Unibet
Adama Traore is the definition of unpredictable.
Despite his rapid pace, brute strength and silky dribbling, the Spaniard has failed to convert these assets into assists or goals in the Premier League this season.
Partly as he’s been consistently benched by Nuno, but after netting on Friday night in the FA Cup and looking dominant against the Crystal Palace defence, we reckon the 24-year-old will get the nod on Tuesday.
Despite some sticky performances Wolves are looking like they are beginning to adapt to life after Raul Jimenez’s injury – this could be rubber-stamped with a solid showing on Tuesday.
