Bet builder October 16: Aston Villa vs Wolves

Aston Villa and Wolves return to Premier League action with a Midlands derby at Villa Park on Saturday – and Pete Farries has three betting tips for you as part of his latest bet builder.

Villa have won just four of the past 15 head-to-head meetings and have plenty of injury concerns going into this latest one, but my first selection is going to be Aston Villa to win (23/30).

Villa's injury concerns: Leon Bailey (doubt), Morgan Sanson (doubt), Bertrand Traore (doubt), Keinan Davis (out), Trezeguet (out)

Villa have failed to beat Wolves in either of their past two visits to Villa Park, but their home form which sees them unbeaten so far should be good enough to carry them past a Wolves side who still don't look great.

While Wolves have won their last two away games to nil, those wins were against much poorer opposition than Aston Villa.

Selection two is for Ollie Watkins to score anytime (15/8). He opened his account for the season in the win over Tottenham before the international break and may be the man to track now with those injuries that Villa have upfront. Watkins, the man who had such a great season last time, is a great anytime way in.

Goals 14

The third and final selection is Under 2.5 match goals (8/11). This has landed in most of Villa's games this season, including in two of their three home games, and it landed in all three of their most recent clashes with Wolves. I'm expecting it to be another tight affair.
