Stadium: Vicarage Road
Watford vs Wolves
It took extra-time to split Watford and Wolves in the FA Cup recently and another close encounter is on the cards when they clash in the Premier League on Saturday.
Just one point separates them in the table, with the seventh-placed Wanderers marginally ahead of the Hornets in eighth.
We reckon 11/5 for a draw at Vicarage Road is the way to go with our first Watford vs Wolves prediction.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Watford haven’t lost any of their last 14 fixtures against teams outside of the top six after following up a 2-1 win at Huddersfield by drawing 1-1 with Southampton here on Tuesday.
The Hornets had to recover from conceding after just 7.69 seconds against the Saints, but a ton of late pressure finally paid off with Andre Gray’s last-minute leveller.
Gray, who swept home from close range with 26 seconds of normal time remaining, told the club website: “It’s a point earned.
“We were losing and the game was getting on. Considering everything in the game, it was a good point and every one we get is massive for us.”
Javi Gracia’s side also struck late on when drawing 2-2 with Wolves after normal time in their Wembley semi-final, before shading it in the additional half an hour.
Looking at the Watford vs Wolves odds, it is 27/2 for the Hornets to be trailing at half-time but then fight back for a stalemate here.
Last Watford line-up: Foster, Janmaat, Masina, Cathcart, Kabasele, Doucoure, Hughes, Capoue, Pereyra, Deulofeu, Gray.
Jose Holebas, Tom Cleverley and Adalberto Penaranda are all back in contention for Watford following injury problems, but Troy Deeney serves the final game of a three-match suspension.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves may have still been deflated from that cup exit when losing at Southampton and being held to a draw by Brighton on home turf.
However, Wednesday’s 3-1 triumph over Arsenal at Molineux put them firmly back on track, with Ruben Neves, Matt Doherty and Diogo Jota all on target before the interval.
Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo said: “Playing against any team is difficult, but Arsenal have quality players.
“In order to create anything, we had to be organised and work hard on the shape of the team. Movement off the ball was also very important.
“It was a good performance against a top team. It was a fantastic performance from the players.”
Attacking wing-back Doherty now has eight goals this term, including four away strikes in the Premier League and one versus Wanderers at Wembley.
Let’s finish off our Watford vs Wolves betting tips by taking 7/1 for the Irishman to hit the target again at Vicarage Road.
Last Wolves line-up: Patricio, Doherty, Bennett, Boly, Coady, Jonny, Neves, Jota, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Jimenez.
Wolves have no fresh injury concerns and are likely to be unchanged, with Romain Saiss set to be benched again along with Morgan Gibbs-White.
WATFORD 1-1 Southampton – Andre Gray
WOLVES 3-1 Arsenal – Ruben Neves, Matt Doherty, Diogo Jota
Head-to-head: Watford 3-2 Wolves (AET), Wolves 0-2 Watford
