Wolves v Brentford match odds
Wolves had not been playing badly despite three successive 1-0 defeats – to Leicester, Tottenham and Manchester United – to open their season.
So it was no great shock to see them defeat Watford and they are 19/20 to gain a win over a Brentford side that have started Premier League life brightly.
The Bees have earned five points form four outings, losing their unbeaten run when defeated by a last-gasp Leandro Trossard goal last weekend.
It was only the second goal they have conceded this season and Thomas Frank’s side sit 10th in the table, two points above Wolves in 14th.

Wolves v Brentford key battles
Wolves have had plenty of opportunities in their games and few players create more chances for his colleagues than Raul Jimenez.
That is good news for Adama Traore, who has had a frustrating time, squandering good openings against Leicester and Tottenham.
Yet he is a handful in the leanest of times and it won’t be long before he gets off the mark in the Premier League this season. Traore is 14/5 to score at any time while Jimenez is 7/5 to net at any stage.
Whether they can break down Brentford is what most of their fans will be wondering.
For while the Bees have had just nine shots on target in four games, only Manchester City have a lower expected goals against number than Brentford.
The Bees are 13/5 to keep a clean sheet against a side that have lost their last three home games in the Wolves v Brentford betting tips.
