Brentford vs Wolves odds


*Odds correct as of 07:30 on January 5

Brentford will be glad of a distraction from the Premier League having lost seven of their last eight matches in the competition, including each of their last five. One of those defeats came at the hands of FA Cup opponents Wolves, who left the Gtech Community Stadium with all three points after an impressive 4-1 win on the 27th of December. They will be looking to go at least one round further than last season, having fallen in this exact same round at the hands of another Premier League side in West Ham.

Wolves, meanwhile, will be much more confident having lost just one of their last six matches and having won the last three. They will be looking to put their EFL Cup defeat to Ipswich behind them and have a decent run in the FA Cup after their third round exit at the hands of Liverpool last season, hoping to get as far as they did in 2018/19 when they reached the semi-finals.
