We’ve got a west Midlands derby to whet our appetite on Saturday night, as Nuno Espirito Santo brings his pack of Wolves to Villa Park.
Wolves’ recent form resembles a pack of Starburst in its variety of colour, but with the Villains playing less than heroic on home turf the visitors will fancy their chances.
Villa still have at least one game in hand on the whole of the league and will be looking to gatecrash the conversation for an unlikely Champions League spot.
Who do we fancy here? Check out our top Odds Pick and Long Shot for Saturday night’s teatime treat.

Our Top Odds Pick – Under 2.5 goals – 8/11 with bet365
Only three of their last 10 fixtures combined have seen more than 2.5 goals, and with Villa captain Jack Grealish still missing through injury, chances may be few and far between again on Saturday.
Wolves have struggled to find the net all season since the injury sustained to Raul Jimenez and pairing that with Villa’s pretty solid defence doesn’t scream goals.
Villa have only won three home matches in 10 since battering Liverpool 7-2 at the back end of 2020 – Wolves will be confident in continuing this trend.
Our Long Shot – Pedro Neto first goalscorer – 8/1 with Betfair
Portuguese wonder-kid Pedro Neto has done his very best to fill the boots of Raul Jimenez this season.
Neto is still just 20 and has the world at his feet as he continues to turn heads across European football.
If Wolves are to open the scoring then look no further than Neto, who continues to look the most lively man in the gold of Wolves.
