Watford v Wolverhampton Premier League betting preview and tips
These teams have been neck and neck for most of the Premier League season, with both sides aspiring to finish in seventh position which would essentially be “best of the rest”.
At the time of writing, Wolverhampton Wanderers are just a point ahead of their opponents, although they have come off worse in both meetings this season, with Watford having triumphed at Molineux before a hectic FA Cup semi-final which saw the Hornets storm back from two goals down to win the match.
Perhaps Javi Gracia’s side will land a hat-trick of victories in this game, although that win at Wembley means that they have a return trip to the national stadium and the fact that they meet Manchester City in the cup final means that they’re a less attractive proposition.
Wolves are certainly no mugs on the road and they’ll head to Vicarage Road operating with their usual system of three central defenders and looking to keep things tight.
In seventeen away matches to date, Wanderers have scored seventeen goals and conceded just twenty-two which is very decent considering that we’re talking about a team who were only promoted from the Championship last season.
While Cardiff and Fulham have toughed things out nearer the foot of the division, Wolves have never been troubled by relegation and they won’t be facing Troy Deeney who earned himself a three-match suspension against Arsenal recently.
We can see this being a match where both sides will be happy enough with a draw and we’re going to back Under 2.5 Goals at a decent price, with a reasonable return from a tight game being played out.
The Hornets rarely score a bundle of goals and they have lost six times on home soil themselves, with a tough-tackling match likely to be on the cards.
