Watford v Wolves betting tips: Lage boys can get off mark

Watford v Wolves betting tips and odds

Wolves have lost their opening three games but have been playing reasonably well and are 5/4 favourites to win at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

Only Liverpool and Manchester City have taken more shots this season but Wolves have no points to show for their efforts under new coach Bruno Lage.

The Hornets, now 6/5 to go down from 5/6, won on the opening weekend of the season but lost their next two games so let’s look at the markets and odds in our Watford v Wolves betting tips.

Match Odds

Wolves are third from bottom after a fruitless start to their campaign, but in terms of expected goals they should be eighth, so it’s clear they need to start taking their chances.

The fixture list was not particularly kind to Wolves who faced Leicester, Tottenham and Manchester United in their first three games, all of which they lost by 1-0 scorelines.

Watford can be backed at 15/2 to win 1-0 or they are 9/4 for a simple victory, but we expect the visitors to start coming good in the next few weeks when they also face Brentford, Southampton, Newcastle, Aston Villa and Leeds.

The Hornets started well with a 3-2 victory over Aston Villa, but lost 2-0 and 1-0 to Brighton and Tottenham respectively and so we make Wolves to win to nil 13/5, while at least one team not to score is 4/5.

Both teams have drawn the second half twice in the early part of the season and we go 27/20 on that option.

Wolves have not scored yet but it’s only a matter of time before they break their duck and they are available at 16/1 to win 1-0 and Raul Jimenez to get off the mark as a scorecast in our Watford v Wolves betting tips.

Talking Tactics

Lage has stuck with a 3-4-3 formation despite a pointless start to the campaign with Jimenez flanked by Adama Traore and Francisco Trincao in attack.

Counterpart Xisco Munoz has also been consistent, deploying a 4-1-4-1 in which Emmanuel Dennis leads the line and Peter Etebo plays in a holding midfield role.

Goalscorer Odds

Wolves may have been firing blanks but Jimenez is the 7/2 favourite to break the deadlock, while supporting cast Traore and Trincao are 15/2, although they are 10/3 and 3/1 respectively to get on the scoresheet.

Ismaila Sarr is viewed as the most likely to draw first blood at 6/1, with Josh King just behind at 13/2 and Dennis 8/1.

Those three are 5/2, 14/5 and 10/3 in the anytime goalscorer market as the last of our Watford v Wolves betting tips.
