Liverpool play at Wolves on Friday night, so they get the chance to open up a four-point lead at the top of the table before Manchester City gets into action over the weekend. That would heap some pressure on their title rivals. They will be meeting a Wolves side who have come into some great form, having put together a three-match winning streak.

Wolves collected three points at home against Bournemouth last weekend to make it three straight EPL wins. Those points left them in seventh place last weekend. This season on home soil in the top flight Wolves have posted a W4 D2 L3 record. They are on a two-match winning streak at home, one of those being a victory over Chelsea. Only 33% of their home games have gone above 2.5 goals and that has been down to how well their defence has done overall. They have produced 12 goals in their ten home games, conceding 11. Wolves have earned a clean sheet in 33% of their home games
Wolves have been leading at half time in just one home game this season. In their last two home games, they have scored exactly two goals in each. So things are reading positive for them. They have netted in each of their last four Premier League games (home and away combined). 83% of their home goals this season have happened in the second half of games. Only four teams have a better defensive record than Wolves have in this season’s EPL, but Friday’s opponents are one of those.
This is the first league meeting since the 2011/12 EPL season
They met in 2017 in an FA Cup tie at Anfield which Wolves won 2-1
Liverpool have won three of the last four league games against Wolves (L1)
Wolves have failed to score in their last three home games against Liverpool
Liverpool are unbeaten in five trips to Molineux (W2 D3)
Liverpool took a comfortable 3-1 home win over Manchester United at Anfield last season which extended their unbeaten form this season. It also took them back to the top of the able above Man City. Liverpool have recorded a strong W7 D2 L0 record this season on their travels in the Premier League. They have averaged just over two goals per game away from Anfield. 66% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. It has been just the five goals they have conceded away this season and have taken a clean sheet in 44% of their road games
They have won 44% of their away games to nil this season. They have produced at least three goals of their own in each of their last three road games. 68% of their away goals have been in the second half of matches. They are currently on a nine-match scoring streak in the top flight. They have also scored the opening goal in seven of their nine away games this season as well. Only Spurs have a better away record than Liverpool this season (but Spurs have played a game more). But it is Jurgen Klopp’s men who currently boast the best defensive record in the EPL.
As well as Wolves have done lately it is still hard to see an upset happening in this. Liverpool have shown that they know how to dig in and grind out away results when they have to. We can see that happening here. Liverpool to win to nil.

After back to back wins in the top flight things are looking much better for Wolves at the moment. They have moved up to within a point of Bournemouth actually. That is because the season has been falling apart for the Cherries who have suffered five defeats in their last six games. Read our Wolves v Bournemouth betting tips for more.
Wolves even money
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 11th, 2018 at 8:43 p.m.)
Wolves have had a positive upturn in form after a 2-1 win at Newcastle last weekend. That is back to back wins (both 2-1 scorelines) that they have picked up now. Considering they had gone D1 L5 in their six games prior to that, it’s a massive upturn from them. At Molineux this season Wolves are W3 D2 L3 this season. In their last home game, they defied the odds in putting a 2-1 victory over Chelsea on the board after having been trailing 1-0 at the break. That snapped a three-match losing streak at home. Wolves have tallied 10 home goals, conceding 11
Only 38% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals and in the league fixtures at Molineux this season, both teams have scored in 50% of those games. Wolves have not found themselves being ahead at the halftime break in any of their home games this season (D4 L4). Of the 10 home goals that they have scored, nine of them have been after the half time break. Wolves have opened the scoring in 3 of 8 league home games this term. As a huge positive for Wolves, only each of the current top four have a better defensive record than Wolves have
This is the first meeting since the 2014/15 Championship season
Bournemouth took back to back 2-1 wins over Wolves in that season
The Cherries are on a three-match winning streak against Wolves (all 2-1 wins)
Wolves are winless in five against Bournemouth (D2 L3)
The Cherries took a 4-0 battering at the Vitality last weekend as Liverpool paid a visit. That is just a poor W1 L5 record that the Cherries have bagged in their last six games now in the EPL. In their last away game, they suffered a 3-1 loss at Man City but that’s almost a given for anyone going there. Bournemouth’s overall record this season on their travels is W3 L4 and in that run of away games, they have scored 11 and conceded 12 goals. A big 86% of their road games have made it above the 2.5 goal line.
43% of away games involving Bournemouth this season have ended up over the 3.5 goal line in fact. The Cherries have taken a clean sheet in 29% of their away games and they have scored the opening goal in two of their seven road games. In five of their last six league outings, Bournemouth have conceded at least two goals and they have lost their last two EPL away games. They have put together a four-match scoring streak away from the Vitality in the top flight (W2 L2) and have been a threat in front of goal all season.
* (betting odds taken from December 11th, 2018 at 10:03 pm)
The draw in the match outright appeals the most for us in this one. Wolves have done much better lately, but they aren’t a high-scoring side. Bournemouth have plenty of goals in them and may be able to do enough to bag themselves a point at Molineux.

Sunday’s only Premier League game comes from St James’ Park as Newcastle play host to Wolves. The Magpies will be looking to get back to winning way on home soil after slipping up at her against West Ham last weekend. Wolves have been struggling for results and need to start showing more resilience on their travels. Read our Newcastle v Wolves betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 4th, 2018 at 7:54 p.m.)
Newcastle battled their way to a good point in a 1-1 draw at Everton in midweek, despite a severe lack of possession in the fixture. It’s back to home soil on the weekend where they are W2 D0 L6 this season. The two wins in that home form have both been produced in their last three home games though as a positive. Not so good is that in their last fixture at St James’ Park the Magpies were beaten 3-0 by West Ham. There has been just the six home goals produced by Newcastle this season, while they have conceded 13. There has been just the one home clean sheet from them.
62% of their home games have made it over 2.5 goals. No league game hosted at St James’ Park this season in the league has produced at least four goals. Four of Newcastle’s six home defeats have been by a one-goal margin and their two wins have both been by a one-goal margin only. Newcastle have been losing at half time in four of their eight home games (W1 D3). In none of their last four league games (home and away combined) have the Magpies managed to earn a clean sheet. Newcastle have opened the scoring in just two home games this season.
Only four teams have collected fewer home points than Newcastle this season. They are the third lowest scorers in the top flight currently.
Wolves and Newcastle were last together in the 2016/17 Championship
Wolves won 2-0 on their last trip to St James’ Park
Four of the six previous EPL meetings have ended in a draw
Newcastle are W2 D4 in the previous six Premier League games against Wolves
Six of the last nine meetings in all competitions have gone under 2.5 goals
Wolves enjoyed a tremendous success in midweek with a 2-1 home win over Chelsea after having been trailing at the half time break. It was a rousing performance which saw them snap a six-match winless streak of league form (D1 L5). Out on their travels, this season in the league Wolves have produced a W2 D2 L3 record. They have earned just the one point from their last three away games though. In total Wolves have produced only the five away goals and they have conceded just seven goals on their travels which is good.
Just one of their away games this season in the top flight have made it over 2.5 goals so there’s a strong nod towards a low scoring game appearing here. Wolves have taken a clean sheet in 29% of away games but home and away combined they have failed to bank a clean sheet in any of their last seven EPL games. Wolves have actually scored first in four of their seven road games. Going into the game Wolves hold a six-point advantage over Newcastle in the top flight. Both teams have failed to score in each of the last three meetings between the two clubs.
The home win is our prediction for Newcastle v Wolves on Sunday. There probably isn’t going to be too much between them at the end of the day, so sticking with home advantage seems to be the best way forward. Home win.

Wolves badly need to snap themselves out of their current slump of form which has seen them lose five of their last six games. They couldn’t make the most of taking a lead at Cardiff last weekend, suffering a loss in the end. Chelsea will arrive at Molineux on the back of a 2-0 home win over a spirited Fulham side in the West London derby on the weekend. Read our Wolves v Chelsea betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:18 p.m.)
Wolves were dealt another blow as they threw away a lead at Cardiff to end up losing 2-1 in South Wales. That is just one point which they have earned in their last six games. They have picked up W2 D2 L3 record at home this season but they have lost each of their last three at Molineux. Both of the home wins that they have managed to take this season were against sides currently sitting in the bottom three (Southampton, Burnley).
In their seven home games, Wolves have come up with eight goals. Only 29% of their home fixtures have made it over 2.5 goals. Under 2.5 goals is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm). Wolves are without a clean sheet in their last six league games and they have actually conceded at least two goals in each of their last three home games.
A Chelsea 2-0 correct score is at 8/1 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm). Of the goals that they have returned at Molineux, Wolves have scored 88% of them after the half time break. They have been trailing at both half time and full time in each of their last three home games. They have not conceded a home goal in the final fifteen minutes of a match
Chelsea are on a four-match winning streak against Wolves
The Blues have won the last two Premier League meetings (2011/12 season)
Both teams have scored in just one of the last eight meetings
The Blues have scored at least two goals in 9 of their last 10 against Wolves
Wolves have lost their last two at home against Chelsea
Chelsea took a 2-0 home win over Fulham in the West London derby on the weekend to give themselves a lift after having lost 3-1 at Spurs the weekend before. The defeat against Spurs is Chelsea’s only loss in all competitions this season. The Blues have W4 D1 L1 for the season away from home. They have scored well on their travels, picking up 13 goals and conceding just the four. Chelsea to win to nil is at 15/8 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm)
The Blues have banked a clean sheet in 67% of their road games. Still, 83% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals which is a nod towards their scoring power. All but one of their away games have gone over the goal line. A Chelsea/Chelsea half-time/full-time bet is at 7/4 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm).
There’s a trend to support that as the Blues have been winning at half time in three of their six road games. Nine of their thirteen away goals this season have been in the second half of games. Chelsea have scored the opening goal in all but two of their road games this season.
It has been a tough time of things for Wolves and that defeat against Cardiff was a huge blow to their confidence. Chelsea haven’t looked as good as they were earlier in the season but should have enough quality about them to secure the three points at Molineux.

Cardiff have a chance to put some pressure on the others inside the bottom side in the Premier League as they kick off on Friday night. A win will move them out of the relegation zone and up into fifteenth. They will playing host to a Wolves side who have lost their way a bit as they have slumped to four defeats in their last five games. Read our Cardiff v Wolves betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 27th, 2018 at 4:54 p.m.)
The Bluebirds suffered a 1-0 loss at Goodison Park against Everton last weekend. That result leaves them at W2 D2 L9 for the season. Their form at home so far this season is W2 D1 L4, but they have won two of their last three on home soil, beating Fulham and Brighton. They have tallied up the nine goals in seven home games, four of those coming in their win over Fulham. At the back, they are averaging two goals per game against them at home. Over 2.5 goals is at 11/8 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 4:41 pm)
71% of their home fixtures in the league have gone over 2.5 goals so there is a trend. Looking deeper 43% of Cardiff’s home games have gone above 4.5 goals this season. Not too surprisingly with that in mind, Cardiff have only the one home clean sheet this season and none in their last six. They have not earned a clean sheet in any of their last ten league games home and away combined. Only Burnley and Fulham have conceded more league goals than Cardiff have done this season. With all but one of their home games this season being level at home time, the halftime draw is at even money odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 4:41 pm).
Wolves won their last five to Cardiff in last season’s Championship
Cardiff are W4 L2 in their last six meetings with Wolves
Both teams have scored in four of the last five meetings
Things are even at two wins each in their last four meetings in Wales
Wolves suffered quite a big setback on the weekend, losing 2-0 at home against the struggling Huddersfield. That leaves Wolves having taken just one point in their last five league fixtures. Out on the road, Wolves have gone W2 D2 L2 this season. Overall home and away, they have won four of their five games this season against sides currently 14th or lower. Each of the four wins that they have taken in the Premier League this term have been with a clean sheet. But they haven’t taken one in any of their last five games. Both teams to score is at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 4:41 pm)
Wolves have managed only the four away goals all season so they have been struggling in front of goal. Of those four away goals, three of them have come in the second half of games. But they have done pretty well defensively with only the five goals conceded against them. None of their away games have managed to get over 2.5 goals. They have actually taken a clean sheet in 33% of their away games this season. With just one point from their last two away games, the pressure is going to mounting on them to snap out of this little slump that they are going through.
The home win appeals the most in Cardiff v Wolves betting tips. Wolves are struggling for goals and form at the moment, while the Bluebirds have produced a couple of very important home wins in recent fixtures. Home win.

The Terriers fell to the bottom of the table on Saturday as Fulham pulled out a victory to move above them. So there will be a bit of extra pressure on them in this one as they head out to face Wolves. Wolves were on a three-match losing streak before earning a great point out at Arsenal last time out. Read our Wolves v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 24th, 2018 at 9:15 p.m.)
A good point out at Arsenal last time out should have given Wolves a good lift. That snapped a three-match losing streak that they were on in the league. Wolves are W2 D2 L2 at Molineux this season. They have lost their last two on home soil, shipping at least two goals in both of those defeats. Those defeats were against Watford and Spurs. There has been no home win from Wolves against anyone currently in the top half of the table. But they have won their two at home against sides in the bottom-half, beating Burnley and Southampton with a clean sheet. Wolves to win to nil is 21/20 odds* (betting odds taken on November 24th, 2018 at 7:09 pm)
Just 33% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals and it is hard to see the goals flying around in this one. 88% of the goals that Wolves have scored at home have come after the halftime break. They have been level at 0-0 in three of their six home fixtures in the Premier League. With that in mind, the halftime draw is at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 24th, 2018 at 7:09 pm) and worth looking at in Wolves v Huddersfield betting tips.
The last time they were together was in the 2916/17 Championship
Each of the three meetings have ended in a 1-0 win for Huddersfield
Wolves have lost four of their last five home games against the Terriers (W1)
Both teams have NOT score in any of the last four meetings
Huddersfield have won 10 of their last 12 against Wolves in all competitions
Huddersfield also got a 1-1 draw in their last league outing. Theirs was at home against West Ham. After earning just three points (D3) from their previous ten league fixtures, Huddersfield now have taken four in their last two. So that’s been quite the turnaround when you put it into context. They haven’t won on their travels yet this term though with a W0 D2 L3 record away from home having been recorded. In those away games, Huddersfield have scored just four times.
Huddersfield have conceded an average of 2.8 goals away from home this season. In the correct score market a Wolves 1-0 option is at 4/1 odds* (betting odds taken on November 24th, 2018 at 7:09 pm). They have Zanka missing at the back for this one as he is out through suspension. There have been under 2.5 goals in five of Huddersfield’s last six games. Of those four away goals which they have produced this season, all but one of them have been in the first half of matches.
There has to be a golden opportunity for Wolves to get back to winning ways in this fixture. They have shown the defensive strengths to keep out the low-scoring Terriers. Home win.
24th November 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Arsenal are really looking like a title challenger this season, much more so than last term. That is a credit to new boss Unai Emery who has made a good start to life at the club. They have put together a long unbeaten run of form in the top flight and will be hungry for more success, not the weekend. Wolves have started to struggle with a three-match losing streak in a tough sequence of games. Read our Arsenal v Wolves betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 8th, 2018 at 7:56 p.m.)
The Gunners collected a 1-1 home draw with Liverpool last weekend which leaves them with back to back drawn games in the top flight for their current form. They are unbeaten in their last four on home soil with a W4 D1 sequence so it has been good stuff from them at the Emirates. They have totalled 11 goals in their six home fixtures, having found the back of the net in each of their last five there. Arsenal to win to nil is at 21/10 odds* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 8:20 pm). Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has five goals in Arsenal’s last four league games.
Defensively Arsenal have shipped at an average of under a goal per game on home soil this season, earning a clean sheet in 33% of their games. In the correct score market an Arsenal 2-0 is at 17/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 8:20 pm). 82% of the goals which they have come up with at home have come after the halftime break. They haven’t been winning at halftime in any game this season. So there is a clear trend there from them. Overall home and away in the top flight Arsenal have scored in each of their last ten league games. A draw/Arsenal half-time/full-time option may fit the bill at 7/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 8:20 pm).
The Gunners have won three of their last four at home against Wolves with a clean sheet
They have not met since the 2011/12 EPL season
Arsenal are unbeaten in eight previous EPL games against Wolves (W7 D1)
Wolves have not beaten Arsenal since 1979 in any competition
Arsenal have four clean sheets in their last five games against Wolves
Wolves picked up a 3-2 defeat at home against Tottenham last weekend, which moved them onto a three-match losing streak. Both of their goals in that game came from the penalty spot. Before this current losing sequence of games, Wolves have gone unbeaten in six. Their overall away from this season is W2 D1 L2 with both wins on the road coming by a 1-0 scoreline. They have yet to beat anyone in the top half of the table yet this season with a D3 L3 record. They have only come up with the three away goals all season in the Premier League.
Both teams NOT to score is at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 8:20 pm). In each of Wolves’ last five away games in the top flight, there has been under 2.5 goals. That is down to their defence which hasn’t been battered at all on their travels. They have conceded just four goals in their five away games. In total, they have picked up a clean sheet in 40% of their away games and of the four goals which they have conceded on their travels, all but one have been in the first half of games. They haven’t struck a first half away goal yet this term.
Wolves have shown how hard it is to cope against the top sides in the country and they could suffer again this weekend. Arsenal have been playing some very positive attacking football and should get the win on the board, likely to nil as well.

Here’s a really odd late kick-off in the Premier League on Saturday as Spurs make a visit to Molineaux. Wolves need a boost having lost their last two games in the league, but they get this and then a game against Arsenal. So not an easy time of things. Spurs have done well out on the road this season and will be looking for a lift after a loss against Man City last time out. Read our Wolves v Tottenham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 31st, 2018 at 6:23 p.m.)
The is now going to be a really testing time for Wolves who have suffered back to back defeats in the league. They went down 1-0 against Brighton last weekend and now face Tottenham and then Arsenal in two tough games. So far this season, Wolves have not taken a league win against anyone currently placed above 13th in the league. In their four games against current top nine sides, Wolves have drawn three and lost one. To be fair, one of the draws in that sequence was an unexpected home point against Manchester City when Wolves produced a fantastic performance.
At Molineux, Wolves are W2 D2 L1 this season and their first home loss happened in their last game on home soil, which was against Watford. Wolves have scored six goals in their five home games, conceding five. Under 2.5 goals is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 1:35 pm). None of their last nine Premier League games have gone above 2.5 goals, with only their season opener having done so. Before their back to back defeats against Watford and Brighton, Wolves had taken four clean sheets in five league games.
The newly promoted Wolves have come up with just the nine league goals this season, which means that they are currently the lowest scoring side opportunity a top ten place in the division. They have scored only the one first-half goal at home this season in the top flight, while half of their six home goals have come in the final fifteen minutes of matches. 89% of all their goals this season in the top flight have been in the second half of matches. A half-time draw is at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 1:35 pm) and the trend with that is that they have been level at the break in four of five home fixtures.
Wolves and Spurs haven’t met since the EPL 2011/12 season
From 8 previous EPL clashes, Spurs are W4 D2 L2 against Wolves
Wolves are W1 D1 L2 in four previous home games against Spurs in the EPL
Both teams have scored in three of the last four EPL meetings
Tottenham have scored at least two goals in three of their last four against Wolves
Tottenham had a four-match winning streak in the league snapped as they suffered a 1-0 home loss against Manchester City last Monday. That goal shipped against the Citizens is the only goal which they have conceded in their last four league fixtures. Both teams not to score is at even money* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 1:35 pm). Out on their travels, this season Spurs have netted eleven goals, shipping only the four. So overall they have been pretty strong.
Their away record is great at W5 L11 so far and they are on a three-match winning streak on their travels. Spurs have taken a clean sheet in half of their road games this season as well. Harry Kane has scored in half of Tottenham’s away games this season, totalling four goals. Kane is the 3/1 first goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 1:35 pm). The Lilywhites have come up with at least two goals in all but one of their last four trips to Wolves. In the correct score market the shortest priced option is a 1-1 draw with 1-0 for Tottenham right behind at 15/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 1:35 pm). Spurs have won all of their away games against sides currently 8th or lower in the league.
Tottenham can win this to nil. Just because Wolves have hit a sticky little patch and will be feeling the pressure in these two games, we have to go with the away side. Spurs have been reliable on their travels against everyone aside from Watford. Away win.

Brighton got themselves another good three points last weekend making it back to back league wins for them to move away from trouble. Wolves had their great unbeaten streak of form snapped last weekend. Will they be able to pick themselves back up at the Amex? Read our Brighton v Wolves betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 24th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
First up, Brighton aren’t going to have their influential forward Glenn Murray who was stretchered off last weekend in their win at Newcastle. That’s a blow because that is their top scorer for the season gone. Regardless, under 2.5 goals for Brighton v Wolves betting tips looks to be a good place to start at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 2:38 pm). There have been under 2.5 goals in each of Brighton’s last three games, two of those back to back 1-0 wins.
With six points in their last two games, it’s been a good little burst from the Seagulls and those 1-0 wins over West Ham and Newcastle are their only two clean sheets this season. They have scored in each of their last four home games in the Premier League and a Brighton 1-0 correct score is at 8/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 2:38 pm). Overall now this season Brighton’s form at the Amex is W2 D1 L1 and their only loss in that sequence of home fixtures was against Tottenham. Brighton have actually scored in five of their last six games home and away.
Brighton won both meetings in the 2016/17 Championship
Those two wins were to nil as well
Eleven of the last twelve meetings have gone under 2.5 goals
Brighton have lost just one of their last five home games against Wolves (W2 D2)
Wolves have failed to score in three of their last four against the Seagulls
Both teams have scored in just two of the last seven meetings
It will be interesting to see how Wolves respond to a 2-0 home loss against Watford last weekend. They were on a six-match undefeated streak of form before that (W3 D3) so they will be looking for a quick response. Their away form for the season is W2 D1 L1 and they are unbeaten in three away from Molineux. Both of the wins that Wolves have collected away from home were both by a 1-0 scoreline. So that just again points to this potentially be a low scoring game and both teams not to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 2:38 pm).
Wolves have only scored the three goals in their away record this season and none of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals, which is good credit towards their defence it has to be said. Each of their last eight in the league have ended under the goal line. All three of their away goals have been after halftime. A half-time draw is a pretty solid option for Brighton v Wolves betting tips. Wolves have earned a clean sheet in 44% of all their league games this season which is very strong for a newly promoted side. There is a bit of pressure on them in this one because following this trip to Brighton, they face Spurs and then Arsenal in a couple of very tough games.
The draw does have some good appeal. Wolves will want to dig in a bit and they have played some good stuff and are defensively solid. Brighton are missing Murray which is a blow to their offensive output. The draw appeals the most in the match outright.

Will Wolves have as successful of a time after the international break as they had before it? They return to league action in seventh place in the table and with a fantastic undefeated streak of form going.

Not even Wolves themselves would have expected to have produced such a strong start to the Premier League season after moving up a tier. They are W4 D3 L1 for the season and are undefeated in six games now. They are W4 D1 in their last five, the point in that sequence coming in a great performance at Old Trafford against Manchester United. All four of their wins this season have been with a clean sheet. Wolves to win to nil is not an unrealistic proposition at 7/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:29 pm).
One of their last seven league games have managed to make it over 2.5 goals and that is largely down to their excellent defensive performances. Three of their last four wins have been by a 1-0 scoreline so that is a decent trend worth considering. A Wolves 1-0 option in the correct score market is at 6/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:29 pm). Five of the six league goals that they have come up with at Molineux this season have all been in the second half of matches.
Watford’s positive start to the season, where they won all four of their opening fixtures, has long since passed them by. They have subsequently taken one point from their last four games. They have failed to score in their last two games as well, suffering a big 4-0 thumping at home against Bournemouth just before the international break. So they are starting to feel some pressure. The Hornets are W1 D1 L1 so far from their three road games, the last two ending under 2.5 goals.
Both teams not to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:29 pm) as we are expecting this to be a tight battle. The worrying thing for Watford is their defence which has not earned a clean sheet since the opening fixture of the next season. They have conceded a total of ten goals in their last four games and with them having scored just two goals in their last four, they aren’t having enough punch going forward to cover up for their defence. Watford have conceded three of their four away goals in the second half of matches this season.
This will be the first meeting between the two sides since they were together in the 2014/15 Championship season. Wolves collected four points that season which included a 2-2 home draw. Wolves are undefeated in their last three home games against Watford, winning one of those. Both teams have scored in all but one of the last six meetings and four of those six have made it over 2.5 goals.
It appears to be another good opportunity to back Wolves to come away with a positive result. They have done such good things this season that we can see value in them on home soil in getting another return. Home win.
