Wolves v Watford Premier League Preview, 20th October 3.00pm
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. Watford had that bright start but have gone off the boil with just one point in their last four. Read our Wolves v Watford betting tips for more.

Wolves News and Form
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 News and Form
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.
Wolves v Watford Head to Head
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.
Who will win – Wolves v Watford Predictions
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.
