Aston Villa v Wolves betting tips: Wolves seek third road win
Preview and odds for Saturday’s Premier League clash
There is a cracking midlands derby in prospect at Villa Park on Saturday so we have looked at the odds to find some Aston Villa v Wolves betting tips.
Villa will hope to bounce back from a 2-1 defeat at Tottenham, while Wolves will hope to carry forward their momentum after beating Newcastle 2-1 last time out.
Saturday’s match, which takes place at Villa Park, kicks off at 3pm.
Aston Villa v Wolves match odds
Aston Villa sit in 10th place in the Premier League table with 10 points from seven games following their defeat at Tottenham two weeks ago.
They have won three and drawn one of their seven games thus far, but have made Villa Park something of a fortress, being unbeaten in their last five Premier League home games (W3 D2). They last had a longer run without defeat at home in the top flight between April and October 2011 (eight games). Villa are 11/10 to beat Wolves.
Wolves have won three of their last four Premier League games, as many as they had in their previous 16 in the competition. They’re looking for three consecutive top-flight wins for the first time since June 2020, the third game of which was a 1-0 victory at Villa Park, and are 13/5 to get that win in the Aston Villa v Wolves betting tips.
Their record on the road has been good, beating both Watford and Southampton to nil in their last two away games, and they seek a third successive away win for the first time since June 2020.
The last time they won three consecutive away games to nil was in March 1960, and they are 5/1 to win to nil this weekend.
Villa have drawn once this season while Wolves, who are 12th in the table and a point behind Villa, have been boom or bust, not recording a stalemate. The draw is on offer at odds of 9/4 in the Aston Villa v Wolves betting tips.

Aston Villa v Wolves head-to-head
Wolves have won four of their last seven league meetings with Aston Villa (D1 L2), more than they had in their previous 27 against the Villans (W3 D10 L14). They are 7/10 to leave with either a win or a draw on the Double Chance market.
Aston Villa have won just one of their last seven home league games against Wolves (D4 L2), winning 4-1 in a Championship match in March 2018.
Seven of their last 12 meetings saw one or other side fail to score and it is 20/23 for that to be the case again.
It is not surprise then that eight of the last 12 meetings saw fewer than three total goals scored. The odds for that to occur again in the Aston Villa v Wolves betting tips are 7/10.
Aston Villa v Wolves key battles
Both sides have been a slow burn this season. Aston Villa (eight of 10) and Wolves (four of five) have scored 80% of their Premier League goals this season in the second half of games, and it is 9/4 that the first goal of the game will be scored in the second half.
Wolves have been creating plenty of chances but have not taken enough of them. It is worth noting that Villa keeper Emiliano Martínez has kept a clean sheet in all three of his Premier League games against Wolves and it is 13/8 that Villa hold Wolves scoreless in the Aston Villa v Wolves betting tips.
Wolves’ Trincão will hope to break his duck sooner or later. He has had 15 shots this season and he is still to register. He may be of interest in the goalscorer markets, along with Raúl Jiménez, who has been involved in Wolves’ last three goals (scoring once and assisting twice).
