Wolves vs Aston Villa Pundits Predictions and Betting Tips

Wolves predictions

Wolves vs Aston Villa predictions and betting tips for the Saturday Premier League fixture at 12.30pm. What are tipsters and pundits tipping for this lunchtime kick-off?

Wolves will once again be without star striker Raul Jiminez for this one and they really missed him last weekend, losing 4-0 at Anfield.

Aston Villa have had a mixed bag of results this season and come into this off the back of four defeats in their last five matches.

In the betting odds for this one, Wolves are 5/4, the draw is 9/4 and Aston Villa are also 9/4 with bet365 to get the three points.


Thatsagoal Wolves vs Aston Villa Prediction

Wolves have scored just 11 goals in 11 Premier League matches and are without their star striker, Raul Jimenez, after a very nasty looking head injury. Add to that Aston Villa’s impressive defensive record (fourth-fewest conceded in the league) and a Wolves goal-fest looks unlikely.

Thankfully, Nuno Espirito Santo’s defensive has been solid, conceding just 11 in 10 before the Liverpool defeat at the weekend. A low scoring derby is in order here.

Under 2.5 Goals – 4/5 with Bet365.


Lawro’s Wolves vs Aston Villa Prediction

“Wolves are not going to have Raul Jimenez back playing again anytime soon, so they need to find something different in attack.

I was at Anfield to see them lose to Liverpool on Sunday and Nuno Espirito Santo’s side did not pose much of a threat in front of goal. They seemed very reluctant to shoot.

They have so many players with fantastic technique but don’t always finish teams off, which is why I fancy Aston Villa to nick a point.”

Correct score: 1-1 draw – 31/5 with SBK.


Sky Sports’ Wolves vs Aston Villa Prediction

“Expect fireworks down one side of the pitch in this one. It’s the Adama Traore vs Jack Grealish show.

Wolves’ recent switch to a back four is allowing much more service into Traore down their right side – his influence is starting to rise again, ably supported by full-back Nelson Semedo, whose pace and direct dribbling creates a nice dovetail with Traore when given space to attack.

Villa should provide them with that platform to play on the counter as Matt Targett at full-back is usually left quite exposed with the excellent Grealish given licence to do his thing down that side. Dean Smith’s side are the most improved team in the Premier League this season and know how to win away. However, it’s hard to back a Villa success though due to Wolves’ very consistent record at playing non ‘big six’ teams at Molineux. They haven’t lost in their 23 fixtures against teams of such definition, winning 13 and drawing 10.

Whoever out of Grealish or Traore manages to find the better quality with their final ball will probably decide which way this one goes.

I’m happy to keep the draw on side.”

Correct score: 1-1 draw – 31/5 with SBK.

Sportinglife Prediction

“Wolves’ 5/4 price for success is decent enough and could well be worth inclusion in any Saturday accumulators but the better value comes in the 23/5 available on a draw at half-time with Wolves winning the contest. Of Wolves’ 51 goals scored in the Premier League during the 2019/20 season, 37 of them came in the second-half.

This is an outcome that has happened in Villa’s recent defeats to West Ham and Leeds, and with a couple of players missing through injury, they could see that poor form continue at a West Midlands rival. Despite some hit-and-miss outcomes this season, Wolves can return to winning ways here.”

Wolves to win 2-0 – 11/1 with bet365.


Radio Times Prediction

“Saturday sees two teams that have already hit top form and suffered big defeats this season come together at Molineux – and this clash really could go either way.

Both managers will hope to exploit weaknesses in the others’ arsenal and seek to control the midfield battle early on.

We could well see plenty of scrappy challenges here but also a lot of goalmouth action. Villa love to bomb forward with Jack Grealish in command, while Wolves will be ready to pounce at any moment.”

Wolves 2-2 Aston Villa – 14/1 with bet365.
