Competition: Premier League
Market: Wolves win
Odds: 4/5 @ Bet 365
In the only Premier League contest to take place on Saturday, relegation scrappers Aston Villa will host Wolves from behind closed doors.
Starting with the hosts, still in the midst of what has been an extended worrying patch, Aston Villa still find themselves in a relegation battle. In their 31 Premier League games this season, they have recorded seven wins, six draws, and 18 defeats, scoring 36 and conceding 59 in return. With a points tally of 27, they open the weekend’s derby in 19th and with their goal difference keeping them in the bottom-three. It is also worth noting that the Claret and Blues hold the worst defensive record in the Premier League. As for their recent run of results, Villa have failed to win any of their last nine matchups across all formats, losing seven of those appearances. It is also worth highlighting that Saturday’s hosts have failed to win any of their last four matches on home soil, losing three of those contests.
As for the visitors, continuing on what has been an eye-catching run of form either side of the break, Wolves are still in pole position to secure another European finish. In their 31 Premier League matches this season, they have recorded 12 wins, 13 draws, and just six defeats, scoring 44 and conceding 34 in return. With a points tally of 49, the Oranges open Saturday’s contest in sixth and within touching distance of breaking into the Champions League spots. As for their previous run of results, securing back-to-back wins since returning to action, the guests are unbeaten in their last eight Premier League matchups, including winning four of their last five. Given the huge gulf in class of late, we’re backing an away victory on Saturday lunchtime.
