What Trueform says for Wolves vs Watford
Watford have gone downhill since a bright start to the Premier League season and Wolves are now regularly outperforming the Hornets.
Wanderers can boast four wins and a draw at Manchester United from their last five top-flight fixtures and have been playing some great football during that hot streak.
We see no reason to move away from the Midlands outfit and 4/5 for them to claim a third straight win at Molineux is a rock-solid Wolves vs Watford prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves followed up a 2-0 home defeat of Southampton by prevailing 1-0 at Crystal Palace, with Matt Doherty striking from a tight angle on 56 minutes.
Wanderers did require Rui Patricio to make some good saves in both of those fixtures, but Nuno Espirito Santo’s settled side continue to pick up positive results.
The manager said of the Selhurst Park success: “We did not start so good but when you look at the whole game we were the better team, the way we controlled the game in the second half.
“The base of the team was here last season, so everyone knows their tasks. We go game by game – there are no targets.”
It is worth noting that eight of Wolves’ nine Premier League goals have come in the second period.
Last Wolves line-up: Rui Patricio, Doherty, Bennett, Boly, Coady, Jonny, Neves, Diogo Jota, Moutinho, Jimenez, Costa.
Jonny Otto, who made his Spain debut, has returned fit along with Wolves’ other internationals, including Helder Costa, who scored on his Portugal debut.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Watford began the campaign with four straight league wins but have since picked up just one point from the same number of matches.
Javi Gracia’s side could be forgiven for losing to Manchester United and Arsenal either side of a draw at Fulham.
However, alarm bells will be ringing at Vicarage Road following a 4-0 drubbing at home to Bournemouth last time out.
To be fair, the Hornets did have Christian Kabasele sent off just 32 minutes into that game, but Gracia admitted: “This is the first day we haven’t competed as in other games.”
Only West Ham have conceded more Premier League penalties than Watford in recent years, while the Hornets also give away free-kicks in dangerous areas.
That makes 7/2 for dead-ball specialist Ruben Neves to score at anytime for Wanderers worth adding to our Wolves vs Watford betting tips.
Last Watford line-up: Foster, Cathcart, Kiko, Holebas, Kabasele, Doucoure, Hughes, Capoue, Pereyra, Deeney, Gray.
Kabasele and Jose Holebas are suspended and midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah is doubtful due to a knee issue.
Defender Marc Navarro has recovered from a minor fitness worry, while Daryl Janmaat (knee) and midfielder Tom Cleverley (Achilles) both continue their rehabilitation.
