Aston Villa have done us a couple of favours during their four straight Championship wins and we’re sticking with them for Saturday’s crunch derby at Wolves.

Steve Bruce’s side were last month tipped to prevail at Barnsley and then backed to beat Nottingham Forest, before maintaining the momentum with wins over Burton and Bolton.

A trip to Molineux is rated tougher than those tests, but 13/5 for the visitors is good value and gets the vote in our Wolves vs Aston Villa betting predictions.

A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds

Wolves went into the international break on the back of a cracking 4-0 triumph at Burton, but the Brewers may have been softened up when going down by the same scoreline to Villa four days earlier.

Wanderers had previously suffered a 2-0 loss at Sheffield United and only just scraped past struggling Barnsley 2-1 at this venue via a stoppage-time winner.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are flying high in second place but they haven’t been overly convincing at Molineux all season.

Cardiff claimed victory here, Bristol City left with a point and the three home wins were all secured by a single-goal margin.

Wanderers haven’t drawn a blank in front of goal here yet, but that just makes 13/2 for an away win and both teams to score tempting from the Wolves vs Aston Villa odds.

A Look At Aston Villa’s Betting Odds

Steve Bruce was under plenty of pressure after Aston Villa only won one of their first seven league games but there was a lot to admire about the way he stayed calm during that tricky spell.

A summer spending spree on experienced performers such as John Terry, Robert Snodgrass, Glenn Whelan and Ahmed Elmohamady no doubt helped Bruce hold his nerve and things are looking much better now.

However, anything less than promotion would be seen as failure for this strong squad and Villa can’t afford to rest on their laurels ahead of a tough run of fixtures.

Those Premier League recruits should come to the fore in big games like this, though, and 23/2 for a 2-1 away win is added to our Wolves vs Aston Villa betting tips.
