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.
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.
