Football – England – Championship Betting Tips

The later game in the Championship on Saturday evening brings us the pick of Saturday’s fixtures with a west midlands derby between Wolves and Aston Villa at Molineux, with bragging rights and an important three points at stake for both clubs.

Wolves have staged something of a revival as they were taken over by large investors who have pumped funds into their transfer budget, with the likes of Ruben Neves, Helder Costa and Diogo Jota all joining their Portuguese compatriot and manager, Nuno Espirito Santo at the west midlands club; Neves was a club record transfer from Porto, which underlines the owners serious ambitions for the club.

Wolves have won three of their last four overall with wins over Nottingham Forest, Barnsley and Burton Albion, while they possess a solid record at home with a  3-1-1  8/6 record to date. Jota (6 goals) and Bonatini (4 goals) are the danger men up front.

Visitors Aston Villa made a slow start to their new Championship campaign under manager, Steve Bruce, as The Villains won just one from their first six league matches of the season, but they too have staged a comeback in recent weeks, winning their last four on the trot with wins over Barnsley, Nottingham Forest, Burton Albion and Bolton Wanderers.

All very well, but these wins have all come against teams in the bottom half of the Championship, so they will face perhaps their biggest test yet this season as they make their way to Molineux with a so-so record of  2-1-2  9/6 under their belts on the road.

Indeed, Villa have registered just four away wins from their last 16 on their travels, so they’re expected to be up against it here today.
