Wolves vs Aston Villa odds
*Odds correct as of 19:15 on October 7
Wolves shocked everyone last weekend as they ended Treble winners Manchester City’s 100% start to the Premier League campaign with a 2-1 win at Molineux. Despite not having a shot on target in the first half, Gary O’Neil’s side found themselves 1-0 up at half time due to Ruben Dias’ 13th minute own goal, before Julian Alvarez equalised for the champions 13 minutes into the second half. City continued to pepper the Wolves goal, but it was the home side who found the winner, as Hwang Hee-chan made it three goals in his last four matches to secure all three points for Wolves.
Aston Villa, meanwhile, made it 10 consecutive Premier League home wins in a row for the first time in their history, as they thrashed Brighton 6-1 at Villa Park, with Ollie Watkins helping himself to his third hat-trick of his Villa career. The Villans have now picked up 58 points in 2023, the second-most of any side behind Manchester City (71) and, with 15 points from their opening seven matches, secured their second best ever start to a season after 1998/99 (17 points).
