Watford look to sustain momentum – ahead of their involvement in the FA Cup final – when they take on Wolves at the Vicarage Road this weekend. Watford and Wolves are separated by just one point with the latter holding the decisive seventh place, which can still yield a Europa League spot. This game will be a repeat of the FA Cup semi-final that saw Watford come up with a remarkable comeback. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Watford were able to snatch a draw against Southampton in the midweek action. The Hornets scored late in the game through Gerard Deulofeu after having conceded the fastest goal in Premier League history to Shane Long.
Wolves produced a sparkling performance to overcome Arsenal 3-1 at home and to improve their chances of European qualification. This was the second big home win for Wolves at the Molineux Stadium after having overcome Manchester United at the start of the month.
Watford and Wolves met each other in the FA Cup semi-final at the Wembley Stadium when the Hornets came back from 2-0 down to win the game in extra time with a 3-2 score. The last game between these two teams at Vicarage Road was in 2014. Wolves beat Watford 1-0 in this match. Our betting tips and predictions would pick a win for Watford.

Watford have been excellent when it comes to home matches this season. The unlucky defeat against Arsenal is the only blemish for the Hornets when it comes to home games in 2019. Meanwhile, Wolves have experienced a major slump when it comes to away form. The last away success for Nuno Espiritu Santo’s men came in the middle of February. Our preview would go with a win for Watford, who have not shown signs of wavering even after reaching the FA Cup final.

Watford vs Wolves draw odds: 3.30
Wolves win odds: 2.90
Correct Score odds
Troy Deeney still remains unavailable for Watford and this reduces their offensive impact. Wolves have been unable to score when they have been stifled by the opposition in terms of space, but this is not expected to be the case against Watford. This will be an open encounter and our correct score prediction would pick a Watford 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Watford’s recent home record has been improved greatly by the big win over Fulham, but the team remains capable of coming up with a decent set of goals nonetheless. The Hornets will have to be cautious about Wolves, who are a reasonably strong outfit going forward. Wolves especially favour counter-attacking and our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals – just like in the recent meeting between the two teams at Wembley.

First Goalscorer odds
Gerard Deulofeu has assumed greater importance in the absence of Troy Deeney and the former Barcelona man has come up with a brace in two of his last three matches for Watford. The 25-year-old was especially a thorn for Wolves in the recent FA Cup meeting as he instigated the comeback with a brace. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Gerard Deulofeu.
