Predicting which Leeds team will turn up this season has become a difficult task, as they have 10 wins, 11 losses and sit right in the middle of the Premier League table.
So this week at Odds Manager Towers, we considered wrapping all the possible results in bits of ham and letting our pet pooch Didier Dogba choose.
His favourite team is “Leeds” after all!
However, we wouldn’t dream of doing that to our loyal followers, so we’ve done what we do best and checked the stats for a couple of top angles ahead of the game.
|Fixture||Wolves v Leeds United|

Our Top Odds Pick – Over 2.5 Goals – 19/20 at Betfair
Their performances may be hard to predict but there is one thing that seems to stay constant for Marcelo Bielsa’s men.
Seven of their last nine games have seen more than two goals scored.
And a league-leading average of over 3.5 goals have been netted in league matches featuring Leeds this campaign.
Wolves’ recent upturn in form is also good for over backers, as Nuno’s side have won two and drawn one of their last three games.
And with two of those matches finishing 2-1 to Wolves, that’s more than enough to convince us of a high-scoring affair at Molineux on Friday.
Our Long Shot – Jack Harrison to Score First – 12/1 at Paddy Power
After trailing 4-0 to Arsenal with half the game to go last week, we reckon Marcelo Bielsa will demand a fast start from Leeds on Friday.
And Jack Harrison could reward a small first goalscorer punt with a big profit.
The winger has scored three in his last five games, including the opening goal against Crystal Palace, two weeks ago.
And with a lightning Leeds opening predicted, at 12/1 he’s great value to get your Premier League punting weekend off to a similarly quick start.
