For the home side, there has definitely been an improvement since Paul Lambert arrived. They've still had their struggles - the home defeat to Queens Park Ranegrs for example - but across all competitions they have won three of their last five matches.
Last time out it was an FA Cup victory at Premier League Stoke City, so the mood will be better than it has been in a whole for Saturday's match. Their ambitions are still rather limited for this season, but who knows what they could achieve if they string a few wins together?
Lambert's men are 7/5 with bet365 to get the win, which would only be their second since September. They really need to get some momentum going on home soil and this is a great chance to do so.
If they are to get all three points, Dave Edwards could be key. He's scored in two of their last three home games and is good value at 29/10 with BetVictor
to score anytime.
As for the visitors - who knows what to expect from Aston Villa? They are 2/1 with Betfred
to get the win, but we're not sure how many backers this will get. It was a horrific 2016 for the club and so far in 2017, they have lost two games without scoring.
In fact, they've only managed one goal in their last five away games. Scoring on the road is a real problem for Steve Bruce's men and confidence isn't exactly flowing through their attacking options right now.
It's a difficult one to call in terms of how they will set up for this one too. Do they go positive and look to hit Wolves on the counter-attack or do they maintain their solid backline and look to steal the points?
Whichever way they choose to go, the home side look to be the best bet here. They have gained some positive momentum, they have a manager that will set their team up to win and they are taking on a side that, quite simply, can't score.
Wolves to win to nil @ 3/1 with Bet365
Edwards to score anytime @ 29/10 with BetVictor
