Aston Villa v Leeds Prediction & Betting Tips – 13th April 201811th April 2018 / lee
Aston Villa v Leeds Championship, 13th April 7.45pm
Aston Villa are going to be heading to the Championship play offs this year unless a major collapse happens. It probably won’t and they will look to secure their position on Friday night with points against Leeds. The Whites have been struggling for any kind of form recently and are probably going to have a hard time taking points off a strong home side like the Villains. Their season has already petered out.
Aston Villa v Leeds Betting Odds*
Aston Villa 4/7, Draw 3/1, Leeds 9/2* (Betting Odds taken at 3:51 p.m. on April 10th, 2018)
Aston Villa News and Form
The Villains got themselves back on track in midweek with a 1-0 win over Cardiff which blew the race for the top two wide open. That allowed Fulham to jump above Cardiff into second, while Villa stayed in fourth, now just the four points behind third-placed Cardiff. So there could be a dramatic finish still in the race for automatic promotion. Villa have had their struggles recently with only a W2 D1 L3 record in their last six league outings, but they have landed the two wins in their last three. Both wins too were at home and with a clean sheet. Aston Villa to win to nil at bet365 is at 13/8 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 11:35 p.m. on April 10th, 2018). Villa have a strong home record this term at W13 D6 L2 and they have scored a shade under two goals per game as well. Their defence has stood up to many a test and have averaged just 0.8 goals per game against them this season. Villa are currently on a ten-match scoring streak on home soil and in the bet365 correct score market an Aston Villa 1-0 selection is at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 11:35 p.m. on April 10th, 2018).
Leeds News and Form
Leeds have badly lost their way again with only the five points (W1 D2) picked up in their last eight league games. They lost again in midweek as they went down heavily at Preston. That is back to back away defeats which they have suffered and it moved them out to a big nine-match winless streak of away form. So there may not be much for them in this one at all. The Whites have shipped at least two goals in each of their last six road games now as well. Their overall record for the season now stands at W7 D3 L11 and they have badly slumped to a bottom half of the table finish for the season. Leeds have produced an average of 1.2 goals per game on the road, but their defence just hasn’t been at the races conceding an average of 1.6 per game away from Elland Road. Under 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 11:35 p.m. on April 10th, 2018). Seven of their eleven losses away from home this season have been by a margin of at least two goals. There has been no clean sheet for them in any of their last eight games home and away combined and at this stage of the season against a top-four side, it’s hard to see the Whites coming away with anything.
Aston Villa v Leeds Head to Head
The last two league meetings between Villa and Leeds have both ended in a 1-1 draw. From the three previous Championship clashes it is Leeds who are W1 D2 up over the Villains. Aston Villa though are unbeaten in their last three on home soil against the Whites with a W1 D2 record. Eight of the last nine meetings have ended under 2.5 goals and both teams have scored in just three of the eight.
Who will win – Aston Villa v Leeds Predictions
Aston Villa can collect a good home win for themselves in this one. Leeds have just faltered badly and aren’t likely going to be strong enough to come away from Villa Park with anything on Friday night.
