Brentford's return to action following a midweek disappointment versus Manchester United, a 3-1 loss marked Bruno Lage's third consecutive EPL loss, and now it's a mere 10-point gap between themselves and the relegation zone. Despite a confident beginning to their first-ever Premier League campaign, Brentford has gone from a potential top-10 hopeful to now fighting a likely relegation battle.

Wolverhampton has claimed 10 points from a possible 12 from their previous four EPL encounters and is riding a 3-game win streak, boasting the second-best defensive statistics in the division, with Manchester City, the only team to outperform Wolves at the back.

The reverse fixture earlier this term did see Brentford secure a 2-0 victory at Molineux, but the contrasting forms in each squad have notably begun to trend in opposite directions.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Matchday 23 Betting Odds

Brentford will struggle to penetrate the solid back three of Coady, Kilman, and Gomes - the latter excelled in replacing Romain Saïss, who's away on Africa Cup of Nations duty. With two games in hand and the possibility of catching fourth-placed West Ham at stake, it isn't easy to look past Wolverhampton's chances of redemption this weekend.

The betting odds make this decision more straightforward, as plus money is found on the Wolverhampton moneyline.

Brentford vs. Wolverhampton Score Prediction: Brentford 0 – Wolverhampton 2

Everton F.C. vs. Aston Villa F.C.

Saturday, January 22, 2022 -7:30 AM EST at Goodison Park

Form, Mentality, and Premier League Trends

  • Everton have won 1 of their previous 14 games in all competitions
  • Aston Villa won 3-0 in the reverse fixture earlier this term
  • Everton haven't defeated Aston Villa since 2016

Benitez Out, Ferguson In

Everton fans have rejoiced in the departure of manager Rafael Benítez, and their dislike for the Spanish manager was evident long before his terrible streak of results. Last weekend, however, delivered the most embarrassing scenario when basement dwellers Norwich City handed Everton their 13th consecutive winless game in the EPL.

Duncan Ferguson has taken the reigns until the Toffees can secure a long-term replacement, but can the former Everton forward compete with the impressive run of Steven Gerrard with such little time to prepare?

Aston Villa's latest transfer signing in Phillippe Coutinho proved his worth when leveling terms against Manchester United to assist his team in a well-deserved point. This result was the perfect way to end Villa's 3-game winless drought, and Gerrard will be hoping his squad can take advantage of the mess Benitez left Everton in.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Matchday 23 Betting Odds

Duncan Ferguson will unquestionably arrive at the Everton dugout with thousand's of screaming Everton fans in support. Still, a re-established Villa squad has the potential to ruin the Merseyside party on Saturday morning.

Gerrard hasn't created an indestructible Villa team by any means. Still, given the tempting moneyline odds on the visitors and their likelihood of presenting a more robust starting eleven than Everton, a Villa victory this weekend makes complete sense.

Everton vs. Aston Villa Score Prediction: Everton 1 – Aston Villa 2

EPL Pick: Aston Villa wins +160 [2.60] [1u wager returns 1.60u of profit] with Everygame
