Watford vs Wolves Prediction

Things have finally started to look up for Watford who are currently on an impressive three-match unbeaten streak. Their last clash at home saw them thrash three unanswered goals past Aston Villa. While on the road, they managed to hold Sheffield United to a 1-1 draw.

The hosts have now stumbled just once in their past five matchups, garnering eight points from a possible fifteen in the process.

On the other hand, Wolves were at the losing end for the first time in three games after table-toppers Liverpool did just enough to post a 1-0 victory at Anfield last week. Nevertheless, the visitors are still dwelling in the top half of the ladder at the moment.

Furthermore, the guests have been resilient in their outings this term, and have admitted defeat just twice so far.

It is also worth mentioning that Wolves have secured the bragging rights in two of their last three visits here. Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this matchup also saw the visitors pick up a 2-0 victory, it goes without saying that a win is certainly not on the cards for Watford in this one.

Be that as it may, Wolves have been held to a draw on five occasions away from home this season.

Moreover, the Hornets are on a promising run at Vicarage Road, which has seen them lose just twice in their past ten games here. Given that they have managed at least a share of the spoils in four of those fixtures, the safest choice this week would be backing a Draw no Bet.

Additionally, the hosts have looked organized at the back lately, and have kept a clean sheet in their past three games here on the trot. They have also conceded no more than five goals from their last seven fixtures as well.

Meanwhile, half of the previous eight outings for Wolves in the Premier League have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the final scorecards. Considering that their reverse fixture was also a low scoring affair, expect more of the same when the two sides lock horns.
