Wolves v Liverpool: 15/1 Bet Builder for TV clash

Joel Matip, Liverpool defender, is good for shots
Joel Matip: Landed 1+ shot in five of his last six games for Liverpool

Our football props column picks out a 15/1 Bet Builder for Wolves v Liverpool on Saturday when the Premier League campaign resumes at Molineux...

Wolves v Liverpool
Saturday 16 September, 12:30
Live on TNT Sports 1

Stuck in a rut is a fair assessment of me in this column right now but I'm going to come out swinging with a nicely-priced Bet Builder on Saturday.

Leg 1: Joel Matip 1+ shot

Let's start in the shots markets where Joel Matip immediately catches the eye.

With Virgil van Dijk suspended, the Cameroon international looks set for another start in the Reds' defence and in five of his last six of those, he's managed a shot.

Liverpool scored more goals than any other side from set-plays last season, while they are already in third place in the shots from set-pieces list this term.

At odds-against, Matip gets the nod for 1+ shot.

Leg 2: Dominik Szoboszlai 2+ shots

Dominik Szoboszlai is also worth adding to the pot.

The Hungarian has already been mentioned on these pages this season and in his six games for club and country, he's landed the 2+ shots bet on five occasions.

He's a player who loves to drive forward from midfield and get shots off around the box, while the fact that Trent Alexander-Arnold misses out here means he's also got an increased chance of getting on free-kicks (Mo Salah being the other contender).

With Liverpool just 40/851.47 for the victory, they should be seeing plenty of the ball and Szoboszlai can get his now customary two shots away.

Leg 3: Nelson Semedo to be shown a card

Finally, the real price-booster of the treble - Nelson Semedo to be carded.
The Portuguese full-back may have his hands full here with Luis Diaz in good form and a likely starter on the Liverpool left.

He was carded 11 times last season and is already on two (from four games) this time around. Semedo is also sitting fourth in the fouls-per-game list.

OK, Michael Oliver isn't the ideal referee for cards but he did book Semedo once last season when their paths crossed twice, while his early average this season is well up on his 2022/23 figure.

The three legs put together pay out at just under 15/116.00 - hopefully the ideal way to kick-off the Premier League weekend.

Back Matip 1+ shot, Szoboszlai 2+ shots & Semedo to be shown a card @ around 15/116.00
