Wolves vs Brentford Premier League predictions: Tips, odds and team news
Wolves will be hoping to continue their climb up the Premier League table when they host Brentford on Saturday at 3pm (UK time).
Wolves vs Brentford odds
*Odds correct as of 20:40 on February 9
Wolves moved into the top half of the Premier League table last weekend and now they’ll be looking to build on it, perhaps even putting in a late European bid. Gary O’Neil’s side are 10th, but sit just seventh points behind sixth-placed Manchester United, which could be enough to seal European football if the cup results go their way. Wolves had a good run of results recently, winning three in a row in the league, but that came to an end with a goalless draw with Brighton and they followed that up with the dramatic 4-3 loss to Manchester United. However, Wolves bounced back in emphatic fashion, beating Chelsea 4-2 at Stamford Bridge last time out.
Brentford, meanwhile, may be worryingly looking over their shoulders. Although they do have a game in hand over the teams around them — with the exception of Luton — Brentford are just three points clear of the relegation zone and they might be in free fall. The Bees have lost nine of their last 11 games in the Premier League, only managing to beat Luton and Nottingham Forest during that time. They have also been knocked out of the FA Cup, losing to Wolves after a replay. However, the last two losses are slightly more understandable, with Brentford beaten by Tottenham and Manchester City.

Wolves vs Brentford match tip
Wolves are the team in form, and on Brentford’s side a lot of the focus will be on the continued return of Ivan Toney. But Neal Maupay could be the man Wolves need to pay attention to. Maupay has scored in each of his past three Premier League appearances, and has never netted in four consecutive games in the division.
