Two draws and a defeat so far for Villa has done precious little to ease their nerves surrounding relegation. Fortunately for Dean Smith’s men, fellow candidates for the drop West Ham and Bournemouth have been equally as unimpressive, meaning all three of those sides are tied on 27 points, and goal difference is all that separates the Villans from safety.
Wolves To Beat Villa
Wolves are going about their business somewhat under the radar, and are this season’s dark horses for a Champions League spot as they sit just two points behind Chelsea in fourth, though the Blues do still have a game in hand against Man City.
Wolves have won four of their last five matches and are now unbeaten in seven. In fact, of their six defeats so far this season, four have come against the ‘Big Six’, and with the kind of run Villa are on, we can’t see the hosts claiming all three points in this one.
The relegation scrappers have now lost five of seven winless matches and have netted just twice across their last five. In theory, the lack of fans should give a bit more of a boost to the away side than normal, which is why we’re surprised to see the visitors at such a long price.
Up against the current bottom five in the table, with 15th placed Brighton looking to lug themselves away from that pack, Wolves are W8-L1 this season and they get our full backing for the three points again.
Wolves To Win To Nil
On the goals front, Nuno Espirito-Santo’s men have been impeccable at the back, keeping an exceptional six clean sheets from their last seven matches and Villa haven’t exactly shown the kind of guile in front of goal to suggest that the visitors won’t keep another here.
Only Norwich have netted fewer than them across their last five outings, with their two goals in this period coming from shoddy defending at set pieces, something Wolves haven’t been susceptible of lately, and the win to nil looks to have huge appeal at the prices.
Raul Jimenez To Score Anytime
Raul Jimenez remains the biggest goal threat for the visitors. His record against the lesser sides doesn’t make for pretty reading if you’re a Villa fan either, scoring nine in 13 against the current bottom seven, including a decisive second goal in the reverse fixture.
He’s two from two since the restart, coming against Bournemouth and West Ham who are both on the same points as Villa, and we’re definitely not brave enough to go against the Mexican here.
