Wolves vs Manchester United Betting Tips: Under 2.5

After locking down the year 2023 in a masterful fashion, claiming brilliant victories against Chelsea, Brentford, and Everton in the last three December tests, Wolves have successfully carried the momentum into the new calendar year, building a streak of seven unbeaten matches across all competitions as they head into Thursday's clash.

Cruising to a comfortable 2-0 triumph against Black Country rivals West Bromwich Albion in their recent outing allowed them to book a spot in the fifth round of the English FA Cup, and now, they'll aim to maintain that positive energy in front of their loyal fans, having not tasted the bitterness of defeat since mid-September at Molineux Stadium (W6, D3).

It's worth noting that the Old Gold have significantly improved their defensive toughness of late, having not conceded more than one goal in seven straight affairs since suffering a 0-3 thrashing by Moyes' Hammers on December 17, while keeping a clean sheet in the last two EPL outings, including a 0-0 against Brighton who tend to average two goals per match at home.

Meanwhile, Manchester Utd is still dishing out unconvincing performances on the pitch, yet the dream of the only potential silverware this campaign continues to smolder at the Theatre of Dreams, after they narrowly eliminated valiant fourth-tier outfit Newport County in a dramatic 4-2 victory on the road to secure progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Returning to league duties, the Red Devils bring back less-than-positive vibes, given that a stunning comeback from 3-2 down against the surprise package of Aston Villa represents the lone success in the past six Premier League fixtures, while recent away results spark concern among coach Erik ten Hag and the loyal supporters.

Not only has Manchester gone four consecutive games without a win away from Old Trafford, but it seems the cutting edge in the final third has dulled, getting on the scoresheet just once during the recent gloomy run on the road, while the potential absence of Marcus Rashford—the scorer of that lone goal—could further complicate their quest for success on Thursday.

Among other things, the lack of firepower in United's attacking arsenal has been evident throughout the season, as they rattled the opponent's net a measly 24 times in 21 top-flight fixtures, with only three clubs in the EPL notching fewer goals than ten Hag's men. Adding to that, it's worth noting that the head-to-head encounters between these sides have been quite stingy in terms of goals, with only 11 goals scored in the last 10 clashes, nine of which stayed below the 2.5 goals threshold.
