Here are our best Premier League predictions and soccer betting picks for Aston Villa vs. Wolves on Saturday, June 27, with kickoff set for 7:30 a.m. ET.
Aston Villa (+350) vs Wolves (-125, Draw +250)
The return of centre back Willy Boly has been an absolute boon for Wolverhampton's defense, with the Wanderers posting seven clean sheets in their last ten top-flight matches since he returned from injury. Keeper Rui Patricio now has a club record 10 clean sheets this season including back-to-back shutouts since Wolves returned to EPL action following the COVID-19 shutdown.
It'll be tough for Aston Villa to score at all in this contest, let alone early. And with Wolves failing to score before the 60-minute mark in each of their past four matches across all competitions we like the "no goal before 31 minutes" prop bet.
Pick: No Goal before 31:00 (-120)
Raul Jimenez paces Wolverhampton with 18 goals this season (15 in EPL play) and has scored in four of their last five contests. While he was mostly quiet against Bournemouth on Wednesday, he still found the back of the net in the 60th minute. With Aston Villa conceding a league-high 59 goals this season there is definite value on backing the Mexican to score on Saturday.
Pick: Raul Jimenez anytime goal (+120)
The Over 2.5 goals has cashed in six of the last seven home contests for Aston Villa across all competitions. Over 2.5 has also hit in each of the last three matches in the head-to-head between these teams.
With Wolves likely employing an attacking 3-4-3 system and the Over paying out at plus money, we're banking on it hitting again.
Pick: Over 2.5 (+110)
Wolves have won four and drawn once over their last five EPL contests, while Aston Villa has gone winless - with six losses - in their previous eight matches across all competitions.
While it's never easy to come away with an outright win on the road, even against a team near the bottom of the table, Wolves are simply better at both attacking and defending and also have momentum on their side.
Pick: Wolves (-125)
