Preview and odds for Saturday’s clash

Watford host Wolves in the Premier League on Saturday so we examine the odds to find some Watford v Wolves betting tips.

The Hornets have a fine home record and are seeking a second win of the season while Wolves are chasing their first point and first goal following three successive defeats.

Saturday’s match, which takes place at Vicarage Road, kicks off at 3pm BST.

Watford v Wolves match odds

Watford have made a satisfactory start upon their return to the Premier League, opening their account with a 3-2 win over Aston Villa before successive defeats at Brighton (2-0) and Tottenham (1-0).

Xisco Munoz’s side have won each of their last 10 home league games, their longest winning run at Vicarage Road. The Hornets have kept eight clean sheets during that time, conceding just three goals.

They are 9/4 to win the match and it is 17/4 they triumph to nil.

Wolves are in the bottom three following three successive 1-0 reverses – at Leicester and at home to Tottenham and Manchester United.

Since beating Liverpool 3-0 in February 2020, Wolves haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last 13 Premier League matches (W3 D1 L9), also failing to score on six occasions.

They have lost each of their last six Premier League games too, losing the last four despite having more shots than their opponents.

Indeed, Wolves have had 57 shots in the Premier League this season (the third highest tally) but are yet to score.

It is 5/4 they win the clash in the Watford v Wolves betting tips while the draw is on offer at 21/10.

Watford v Wolves head-to-head

This will be the fifth Premier League meeting, with each side winning two apiece so far.

Watford won the last clash at Vicarage Road 2-1 in January 2020.

Wolves have won seven of the last 26 encounters (D10 L9) and are 3/10 to win or draw the game in the Double Chance market in the Watford v Wolves betting tips.

Eight of the last 11 meetings saw both sides score and it is 10/11 for that to happen this time.

Twelve of the last 17 clashes saw three or more goals and the Watford v Wolves betting tips odds are 6/5 for that trend to continue.

Watford v Wolves team news

Watford attacker Joao Pedro could make his first appearance of the season after recovering from a knee injury.

Midfielder Ozan Tufan could make his debut, but Ben Foster (hamstring) is ruled out.

Watford v Wolves key battles

Both managers will hope their strikers find form sooner rather than later.

Watford striker Josh King has hit a lean patch and has failed to score in his last 13 Premier League games. He is 14/5 to score at any time and 13/2 to grab the first goal.

Wolves forward Raul Jiménez is the only player to have registered double figures for both shots (12) and chances created (10) in the Premier League this season.

But he is still to find his form having returned from a skull fracture and is 6/4 to score at any time and 7/2 to net the first goal.
