West Brom News and Form

West Brom dropped points in a home draw against Brentford last weekend at the Hawthorns. They had been on a three-match winning streak before that. The draw against Brentford also left them with a W6 D2 L2 record at the Hawthorns this term in the second tier. West Brom are the current top scorers in the Championship and on home soil they have come up with an average of 2.7 goals per game. It has played a big part in 70% of their home games going over the 2.5 goal line. While their scoring has been strong, they have struggled to earn clean sheets having picked up just the one on home soil all season long. They don’t have a clean sheet in any of their last five home league fixtures. West Brom have scored in each of their ten home fixtures this term though.

Home and away they have no clean sheet in eleven league games. 74% of West Brom’s home goals this season have been scored in the second half of matches. They have been level at the half time break in half of their ten home games this season, while they have come up the first goal in all but three of their home fixtures. With Villa’s form on the rise, a home win in this one would see the Baggies at least keep a positive game between themselves and their rivals. West Brom are four points clear of the Villains going into the game.

That has seem them head into the weekend now just three points outside of the top six. Out on the road the Villains have produced a W3 D3 L4 record so far. The notable feature about their upturn in form is their high-scoring output. They have fired off 17 goals in their last five league games now. Aston Villa have produced at least two goals in each of their last five games

That impressive run of scoring form has helped them move to an average of 1.5 goals scored per away game this term. 60% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals and also a factor in that has been the fact that Villains have only pikced up the two clean sheets away from home so far.The positive is, is that those two clean sheets have been in their last two league away games at Derby and Middlesbrough, two of the current top seven. The Villains have been level at the halftime break in six of their ten road games and 60% of villa’s away goals this season have been after the halftime break. Both teams have scored in 70% of Aston Villa’s away games and they have scored the opening goal in five of their ten road games.

Middlesbrough v Aston Villa Championship Preview, 1st December 5.30pm

Aston Villa finally seem to be coming to life having found some recent winning form in the Championship. So they are definitely on the up at the moment and will look to challenge Boro at the Riverside on Saturday evening. Boro are no pushovers, of course, heading into the weekend in third place and on a good unbeaten streak of form. Read our Middlesbrough v Aston Villa betting tips for more.

Middlesbrough v Aston Villa Betting Odds*

Middlesbrough 23/20
Draw 9/4
Aston Villa 12/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 28th, 2018 at 3:55 p.m.)


Middlesbrough News and Form

Middlesbrough earned a point from a midweek trip to Preston which leaves them unbeaten in seven. They are W3 D4 in that sequence of fixtures. Overall this season at the Riverside Boro have posted a W5 D3 L1 record and they are unbeaten in their last three there, winning two. Just 11% of their home games have made it over 2.5 goals. Under 2.5 goals is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on November 28th, 2018 at 4:24 pm) and that looks a great place to start for Middlesbrough v Aston Villa predictions. Each of Middlesbrough’s last eight home games have gone under 2.5 goals

Boro have conceded just the three goals at the Riverside this season in total, which tallies up to a clean sheet in 78% of their home fixtures. They have two clean sheets in their last three. 56% of their home games have been won to nil. Middlesbrough to win to nil is at 12/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 28th, 2018 at 4:24 pm). Seven of their ten home goals this season have appeared in the first half of matches so there’s been a big trend there. Home and away Boro are on a five-match scoring streak in the league. Four of their eight home games have been at 0-0 at halftime

Middlesbrough v Aston Villa Head to Head

Boro and Villa met five times last season
Along with league meetings, there met in the championship playoffs and the EFL Cup
Villa won 1-0 twice at the Riverside last season
There were just four goals in the five meetings last season
Villa earned a clean sheet in four of the five meetings last season
Villa went W2 D2 L1 against Boro last term

Aston Villa News and Form

Villa were involved in a crazy 5-5 draw at home against Nottingham Forest in midweek, Tammy Abraham scoring four. That leaves them W3 D1 in their last four. Aston Villa produced a 3-0 win in their last away games out at Derby, a good result against a strong side. That victory snapped them out of a three-match losing streak away from home too. Aston Villa haven’t been great on the road with just a W2 D3 L4 record having been posted in the Championship away from Villa Park. They have produced 12 goals in their nine away games, conceding 13 and 56% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. They have been vulnerable at the back as 78% of their away games has seen both teams score.

The Villains have conceded 62% of their away goals in the first half of games and yet they have been level at halftime in six of their nine road fixtures. Four of those halftime draws were 1-1 scorelines. The halftime draw is at 21/20 odds and a good proposition* (betting odds taken on November 28th, 2018 at 4:24 pm). In just 11% of their away games in the second tier this season, Aston Villa have banked a clean sheet. They have scored the opening goal in four of their away fixtures. The Villains have lost three of their four away games against sides currently in the top eight this season (W1).

Who will win – Middlesbrough v Aston Villa Predictions

Villa clearly had the better of things last season against Boro but they haven’t delivered the away form this season. Middlesbrough have been a tough beast at the Riverside and the narrow home win gets our nod.

Aston Villa v Birmingham Prediction & Betting Tips, 25th November 2018

Championship Betting

Aston Villa v Birmingham Championship Preview, 25th November 12.00pm

The Villains looked as if they were starting to turn their fortunes around just before the international break as they picked up back to back wins. They get back into action with a tough Midlands derby. Birmingham are right there level on points with their rivals in the middle of the Championship table. Read our Aston Villa v Birmingham betting tips for more.

Aston Villa v Birmingham Betting Odds*

Aston Villa 17/20
Draw 13/5
Birmingham 3/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 20th, 2018 at 8:13 p.m.)


Aston Villa News and Form

Aston Villa produced back to back wins in the Championship before heading into the international break. Their last game was a fantastic 3-0 success on the road at Derby. That was the second time this season only that the Villains had managed to win back to back league games. Villa are unbeaten in three on home soil, winning their last two with a clean sheet. Aston Villa to win to nil is at 2/1 odds* (betting odds taken on November 20th, 2018 at 8:14 pm). Each of Villa’s last three home wins have been with a clean sheet so there is a trend.

In their eight home games in the Championship, the Villains have come up with the fifteen goals. That has helped them to a W4 D3 L1 record for the season at Villa Park. They have hit the back of the net in all of their home games thus far. 80% of the goals that Villa have conceded at home this season have been in the second half of games. So that should lean towards the half-time draw offering some decent appeal in the game at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 20th, 2018 at 8:14 pm).

Aston Villa v Birmingham Head to Head

Villas have won their last three at home against Birmingham to nil
Villa are unbeaten in their last 12 league games at the Blues (W8 D4)
Both teams have scored in just one of the last five meetings in all competitions
Birmingham have failed to score in four of the last five against Villa
The Blues last won at Villa Park in the 2004 top flight

Birmingham News and Form

Birmingham had a ding-dong battle in a 3-3 draw with Hull in their last Championship fixture. High scoring games has been a feature for them recently. That draw leaves the Blues with a good W4 D1 L1 record in their last six fixtures and they have need at least two goals in all but two of their last six. They have earned only the one clean sheet in their last eight though. Both teams to score is at 5/6 odds* (betting odds taken on November 20th, 2018 at 8:14 pm)

Birmingham’s away form in the Championship this season is W2 D3 L3. It is well worth a look at their form against sides in the top half of the table. The Blues are just W1 D6 L2 in nine game against top-half of the table sides. Birmingham have come up with an average of less than a goal per away games. 71% of their away goals have been scored in the first half of games. 78% of their away goals conceded have been in the second half. They have struck the back of the net in each of their last nine league games. In the correct score market the 1-1 draw is at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 20th, 2018 at 8:14 pm)

Who will win – Aston Villa v Birmingham Predictions

Villa have been good enough on home soil and have had a bit of momentum behind them, enough to go and get a win on the board in this one. It will probably only be by the one-goal margin though as they do look evenly matched.

Aston Villa v Bolton Prediction & Betting Tips, 2nd November 2018

Championship Betting

Aston Villa v Bolton Championship Preview, 2nd November 7.45pm

Friday night action from the Championship sees two sides struggling for form go head to head. They have both lost their last two league games and only two points separated them in the bottom half of the table. So both of them could really use the massive boost of three points from this clash. Can Villa’s superior scoring power win out? Read our Aston Villa v Bolton betting tips for more.

Aston Villa v Bolton Betting Odds*

Aston Villa 2/5
Draw 15/4
Bolton 7/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 30th, 2018 at 7:43 p.m.)


Aston Villa News and Form

Things haven’t changed much since Dean Smith took over from Villa as they have lost their last two and are W1 L2 since the new boss came in. But they get back to home soil this weekend after losing at Norwich and QPR over the last week or so. They have lost back to back games and have claimed just the one league win in their last seven. Villa’s home form this season reads W3 D3 L1. They beat Swansea 1-0 in their last home fixture.

Actually, there has been a trend of tight margins as each of Villa’s last four games (W1 L3) have been settled by a one-goal margin. A top betting tip, therefore, is an Aston Villa to win by a 1 goal margin at 11/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 30th, 2018 at 7:48 pm). The Villains have scored in all seven home games this term, averaging 1.8 goals per home fixture. There is a clear trend in that they haven’t been losing at half time in any home game this season so the Villa/Villa half-time/full-time bet could appeal.

Currently, Villa are eight points worse off than at this stage of last season’s run in the Championship. They only have the two clean sheets overall (home and away) but those were both in victories at home over Rotherham and Swansea. Aston Villa to win to nil is at 5/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 30th, 2018 at 7:48 pm). Villa have conceded 80% of their home goals after the half time break and four of those eight in the final fifteen minutes. The Villains have scored first in five of their seven home games this season. An Aston Villa 1-0 correct score is at 5/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 30th, 2018 at 7:48 pm)

Aston Villa v Bolton Head to Head

There was a home win for each in last season’s Championship meetings
Things are even with two wins each in the last four meetings
Each win recorded in the last seven league meetings (6) have been by a 1 goal margin
Four of the last seven meetings in all competitions have ended in an away win
Just three of the last eight have made it over 2.5 goals

Bolton News and Form

There was another defeat for Bolton on the weekend as they went down at home against Hull, which also, like Villa, leaves them with back to back league defeats. The Trotters have picked up just the one point in their last five league fixtures, collecting just one win in their last eleven. As a positive though in among all of that, they have earned more points away from home this season than on home turf, with a W2 D3 L2 record on their travels. Overall home and away Bolton have produced just eleven goals this season.

The Trotters have failed to hit the back of the net in 43% of their road games and each of their last four on the road have produced fewer than three goals. Under 2.5 goals is at even money odds* (betting odds taken on October 30th, 2018 at 7:48 pm) and is a strong betting tip for Aston Villa v Bolton betting. Of the goals they have conceded on their travels, 62% of them have come in the first half of matches. Bolton are eight points better off than they were at this stage of last season, so there is some kind of positive there. A win in this fixture puts them a point clear of the Villains.

Who will win – Aston Villa v Bolton Predictions

This may be a tight and low-scoring affair between them. Bolton don’t carry a huge attacking threat and the scoring power of Villa should secure them the home win. But the one-goal margin victory for the Villains does have appeal.

QPR v Aston Villa Premier League Preview, 26th October 7.45pm

QPR have hit a nice stretch of form having won three of their last four which has started to see them climb the table nicely. They stay at home after a big midweek success at Loftus Road as they welcome Aston Villa. Villa’s new management of Dean Smith and John Terry have some work to do after the Villains lost out at Norwich in midweek. Read our QPR v Aston Villa betting tips for more.

QPR v Aston Villa Betting Odds*

Aston Villa 8/5
QPR 17/10
Draw 9/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)


QPR News and Form

It has been some great form from QPR recently having posted a positive W3 D1 record in their last four games. Incidentally, that is the second time this season that they have produced a run of four games unbeaten. Rangers have taken a W3 D1 L1 record in their last five league home games, with the only defeat in that sequence coming against Norwich back in September. They have also managed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four games, conceding just the one goal in that sequence. Each of their three wins at Loftus Road have all been with a clean sheet. QPR to win to nil is at 7/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 12:04 pm).

QPR have averaged exactly one goal per game home and away this season and on the two occasions in which they failed to score at home this season, they lost both games. Five of QPR’s last seven Championship fixtures have ended under 2.5 goals, so that option for QPR v Aston Villa betting tips is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 12:04 pm). 62% of QPR’s goals at Loftus Road this season have been scored in the first half of their games.

32% of goals conceded by QPR in the Championship this season have come after the 70th minute. There has been no goal either scored or conceded inside the first fifteen minutes of any QPR home game in the league this season. Tomer Hemed has scored in both of QPR’s last two games and is a 2/1 option in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 12:04 pm).

QPR v Aston Villa Head to Head

There was an away win for each last season in their meetings
QPR have lost their last two home games against the Villains
Both teams have scored in all but three of the last ten meetings
Villa have scored in each of their last five games against QPR
Three of the four previous Championship meetings have been settled by a one-goal margin

Aston Villa News and Form

The Villains are down in 16th place in the Championship heading into the weekend, which is two points behind QPR. Only once this season have Villa managed to produce back to back wins and that was right at the start of the season. There has been no consistency from them since. Dean Smith took over for the first time last weekend and got three points, but then they slumped to a defeat against Norwich in midweek. It has left them with a W1 D2 L3 record in their last six games. They have collected only the one clean sheet in that sequence of matches as well and don’t have an away clean sheet this term. Both teams to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 12:04 pm).

Away from home Villa have just one win and they are D3 L3 in their last six fixtures on the road. Their last two losses away from Villa Park have both been by a 2-1 scoreline. In the correct score market a QPR 2-1 correct score option is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 12:04 pm). As a positive for them, they have scored in each and every league game played this season, but you have to take into consideration that they have the third-worst defensive record in this season’s Championship. Tammy Abraham has scored in three of Villa’s last four games in the second tier and he is at 11/2 in the first goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 12:04 pm).

Who will win – QPR v Aston Villa Predictions

You simply can’t ignore the fact that QPR are the form team of the two at the moment and they look a solid option. That win at Loftus Road over Sheffield Wednesday was very good in midweek and we will back them to beat Villa. But also back both teams to score.

Bristol City v Aston Villa Championship Preview, 28th September 7.45pm

The Robins have hit a sticky patch for the season after their barnstorming start. They have lost their last two now so need to come up with a response. They get a home game on Friday night against an Aston Villa who have fallen a bit short of expected standards with wins having been hard to come by. Read our Bristol City v Aston Villa betting tips for more.

Bristol City 6/4
Aston Villa 7/4
Draw 23/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 26th, 2018 at 11:44 p.m.)


Bristol City News and Form

The Robins were on a great four-match winning streak in the league, but have just slipped back a bit. They have lost their last two league games, both of which were out on the road though at West Brom and Wigan. They get back to home soil where they have won their last two so that could be the boost that they need. Overall their form at Ashton Gate Reads W2 D1 and they have scored five goals in their last two home games. We are going over 2.5 goals at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken from September 27th, 2018 at 3:00 pm).

71% of the goals that Bristol City have scored this season have been after the halftime break. Andreas Wiseman has been their go-to man so far this season with five goals on the board, although four of those have been away from home. We are going to take a look at both teams to score at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken from September 27th, 2018 at 3:00 pm) for our Bristol City v Aston Villa predictions.

Aston Villa News and Form

A lot more was expected of Aston Villa this season. They opened with back to back wins but have since managed just the one win in their last seven played (D4 L2). So it’s not happening for them and last weekend they suffered a home loss against Sheffield Wednesday. The Villa defence has been leaky this season and there should be enough for Bristol City to get at them. We see the appeal in a Bristol City 2/1 win at 17/2 odds* (betting odds taken from September 27th, 2018 at 3:00 pm).

The Villains are winless in their last three road games in the league (D2 L1) and overall home and away this season they have managed to take just the one clean sheet. Two-thirds of their goals away from home have cropped up in the second half of matches. They have conceded 71% of their away goals in the first half of matches. They have been level at the break in three of their four away games this season, two of those 1-1. The 1-1 halftime correct score option is at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken from September 27th, 2018 at 3:00 pm). Villa starts just the point behind City so would lose big ground if they were to suffer a defeat on Friday night.

Bristol City v Aston Villa Head to Head

Aston Villa definitely came out on top in last season’s Championship meetings between the two clubs. After a 1-1 draw on the road, they posted a big 5-0 home win over the Robins. In the four previous Championship meetings between the two of them, Villa are W1 D1 L1 against Bristol City.

Who will win – Bristol City v Aston Villa Predictions

Bristol City’s home form has been there and they are going to be keen to get back to winning ways with a big performance here. The Villains are shaky and unreliable at best and the powerful Bristol City attack can carve out enough chances to win this.

Blackburn v Aston Villa Championship Preview, 15th September 5.30pm

Blackburn have had a solid start to the new Championship season as they are sitting in mid-table but just had a five-match undefeated streak of form broken. They will be looking to avoid another loss as they get a tricky game against Aston Villa on the weekend. The Villains are sat level on points with Rovers, not having gotten up the big head of steam that they were expected to have had. Read our Blackburn v Aston Villa betting tips for more.

Blackburn v Aston Villa Betting Odds*

Aston Villa 8/5
Blackburn 13/8
Draw 23/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.)


Blackburn News and Form

Solid enough stuff from Blackburn then who had a five-match undefeated streak of form from the start of the season, snapped in a heavy defeat out at Bristol City just before the international break. They are W1 D2 at Ewood Park  for the term and have a clean sheet in two of those three. So there is reason to suspect that this is going to be a low scoring game and under 2.5 goals is at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.).

Rovers have returned just the three goals on home soil so far this season and have conceded the two. Top scorer for them is Charlie Mulgrew so he is going to be worth a look in the anytime goalscorer market from their end. Blackburn to win by a one-goal margin is at 3/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.) if you were thinking of backing the home team. Coming back after the break having suffered their first league loss of the season will be a test of their character.

Aston Villa News and Form

It has really not happening for Aston Villa at the moment, despite still being fancied for a run at promotion. Things just are n’t going their way after a bright start to the season. They won their opening two games, scoring three goals in each and then it has been downhill since. They have D3 L1 in their last four league games and just before the international break they were torn apart in a 4-1 loss against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. That was a tough one for them and it just highlighted more defensive problems.

Villa haven’t taken a clean sheet this season and that’s a problem. Still, they have been producing in front of goal themselves and therefore both teams to score is at 4/5 odds and worth a poke* (Betting Odds were taken on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.). That’s a decent Blackburn v Aston Villa betting tip. The Villains are averaging just under two goals per game this season but they have the worst defensive record of the top fourteen teams in the Championship ahead of the next round of action. They need to find their feet but could face a really testing time at Ewood Park on the weekend.

Blackburn v Aston Villa Head to Head

Blackburn and Aston Villa traded home wins in the Championship last season, both of those being won by a one-goal margin. The home side has won seven of the last eight fixtures between these two (D1) so there is a pretty strong trend towards Rovers if you look at that. Both teams have scored in all but one of the last six meetings. Blackburn are W2 D1 in their last three home games against Villa.

Who will win – Blackburn v Aston Villa Predictions

There has to be a decent chance of Blackburn producing something in what is likely going to be a low-scoring tight game. Rovers have held their own well enough and can sneak past the visitors. They are worth a look in the match outright.

Aston Villa v Brentford Championship Preview, 22nd August 7.45pm

The Villains have made a strong start to the new season having picked up seven points from their three games. They were always expected to be up there in a title race this season again. They will get a solid test in this one against a Brentford side who have started just as well and who have received plenty of backing to win this season’s Championship. Read our Aston Villa v Brentford betting tips for more.

Aston Villa v Brentford Betting Odds*

Aston Villa 6/4
Brentford 17/10
Draw 12/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from August 19th, 2018 at 8:02 p.m.)

Aston Villa News and Form

No complaints about Villa’s form then with two wins and a draw to start their season. They opened with a good 3-1 away win at Hull and then edged their way past Wigan in their first home game. They were back out on the road on the weekend when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Ipswich. They did get in an extra EFL Cup match during midweek as well which they won 1-0 out at Yeovil. So while the goals have been there for Villa they are still searching for their first clean sheet in the league and while that goes on we are looking at both teams to score in our Aston Villa v Brentford betting tips for 8/11 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 19th, 2018 at 8:02 p.m.).

The Villains posted a W10 D4 L9 record on their travels in the Champions last season but without question their away form fell away at the end of the season winning one of their last five. So their success at Hull would have given them a good start to life on the road this season. In the first goalscorer market they have Jonathan Kodjia up there at the head of the market at 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 19th, 2018 at 8:02 p.m.). He is looking for his second league goal of the season after getting the opening goal of their game at Ipswich on the weekend. Two of their three league games then this season have gone over 2.5 goals and we are going to expect that trend to continue.

Brentford News and Form

Punters have clearly liked what they have seen so far from Brentford as they have taken backing to win the league this season. They opened with a big 5-1 win over Rotherham before playing out a 1-1 draw at Stoke. They then took a solid 2-0 home win over Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday. Like Villa, they also had an EFL Cup last week, which they won 4-2 out at Southampton. So the goals have been flowing very well from them and they have both Ollie Watkins and Neal Maupay with three league goals each this season. Maupay is at 7/4 and Watkins at 9/4 in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from August 19th, 2018 at 8:02 p.m.).

Over 2.5 goals is at 19/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 19th, 2018 at 8:02 p.m.) for this fixture and it does look as if there is a decent chance of goals flying around. Brentford have produced more shots than Villa have done this season as well as having earned a lot more possession than the Villains have done over their respective three games. Six of Brentford’s seven league goals this season have come from open play and they look as if they will be a big threat to the home side. The Bees finished ninth in the Champions last season and the produced a W9 D4 L10 record on their travels.

Aston Villa v Brentford Head to Head

Last season there was four points for Brentford from their two meetings with the Villains. They are actually undefeated in their last four Championship fixtures against the Villains with a W2 D2 record so they have done well. The last two league games between them at Villa Park have both ended in drawn fixtures.

Who will win – Aston Villa v Brentford Predictions

This should be a pretty even contest between two solid teams. Neither have quite nailed the defensive side of things yet and we have to look over 2.5 goals in our Aston Villa v Brentford betting tips. As for a winner, we are just going to lean on home advantage nicking it.

Yeovil v Aston Villa EFL Cup Prediction & Betting Tips – 14th August 2018

FA Cup & League Cup Betting

Yeovil v Aston Villa EFL Cup, 14th August 7.45pm

The first action of the EFL Cup this season and could there be an upset on the table as Championship side Aston Villa have to go off to the west country to face the Glovers? Yeovil are a League Two side and they haven’t had the greatest of starts to the new season. Aston Villa have opened well but will they be at full strength for this contest at Huish Park?

Yeovil v Aston Villa EFL Cup Betting Tips

The Glovers have taken a point from the opening two games of the new League Two season. Last term they had their flirtations with the relegation zone in the division, finishing just two points clear of it at the end of the season. This being so early in the season it is probably tempting for Glovers boss Darren Way to throw out a strong side but this is no priority for them, despite taking on a high-profile opponent.

Going back to their league form, their games were against Bury and Mansfield who have both been tipped to have strong seasons, so that needs to be put into context. The Glovers may well play their part in a high scoring game and we are going over 2.5 goals at 1.8 decimal* (Betting Odds were taken from 13th August, 2018 at 10:17 p.m.). The Glovers did produce an entertaining 2-2 draw with Mansfield over the weekend.

This will be the first competitive meeting between Yeovil and Aston Villa.

The Villains have started the new Championship season in positive fashion having carved out back to back wins over Hull and then Wigan. So a good positive start by Steve Bruce’s men and they scored exactly three goals in both of those games. An Aston Villa/Aston Villa half-time/ full-time option is at 11/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from 13th August, 2018 at 10:17 p.m.). We can’t pass that up for our Yeovil v Aston Villa betting tips. That’s good value.

Villa are more likely to be understrength then the Glovers are but of the two Villa are going to have the much stronger depth. They can start with the likes of Jack Grealish and Jonathan Kodjia on the bench and still be fine. Just with them potentially not being at their strongest defensively, we are expecting them to concede.

Yeovil v Aston Villa EFL Cup Betting Odds*

Aston Villa 3/5
Draw 10/3
Yeovil 5/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from 13th August, 2018 at 10:17 p.m.)

Who will win – Yeovil v Aston Villa EFL Cup Predictions

We have to stick with Villa in this one even though they may not be at full strength. It is hard to imagine that Yeovil are going to be overly interested in this one as they need to get their league campaign going. Back a Villa/Villa half-time/ full-time punt.

Hull v Aston Villa Prediction & Betting Tips – 6th August 2018

Championship Betting

 

Hull v Aston Villa Championship, 6th August 7.45pm

Hull were scrabbling around the bottom third of the table for most of last season’s Championship campaign and will be looking for some kind of improvement from somewhere. They get a start in a tough one fixture against Aston Villa who failed in last season’s play offs. The Villains have been backed heavily for promotion as they have had some heavy investment from backers over the summer. Read our Hull v Aston Villa predictions for more.

Hull v Aston Villa Betting Odds*

Hull 29/20
Aston Villa 15/8
Draw 9/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from August 1st, 2018 at 8:17 p.m.)

Hull News and Form

So the Tigers didn’t have a fun time of things in the Championship last season as they finished down in 18th position. They were comfortably enough above the drop zone despite winning just two of their final nine games of the term. Their home form read W7 D8 L8 last season. Transfer business has been slow from them over the summer and so the degree of improvement from last term is negligible. They are going to of course, come out with some fresh legs and enthusiasms and were are looking under 2.5 goals at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 1st, 2018 at 8:17 p.m.). 61% of Hull’s home games last season in the division ended under the goal line and the most frequent scoreline at the KCom was a 0-0 draw. Hull weren’t short of goals last season and they were actually the top scoring team of the bottom half of the table finishers. Their defence was just a total shambles through which let the whole thing down.

Aston Villa News and Form

So with a bit of fresh backing coming into the club after their costly failure to earn promotion to the Premier League through the play offs, things look brighter again for Aston Villa who are 12/1 odds to win the Championship outright this term* (Betting Odds were taken from August 1st, 2018 at 8:17 p.m.). Steve Bruce is staying on as boss and while they are expecting the impending departure of Jack Grealish. Villa have picked up young Portugal keeper Andre Moreira on a loan deal, that’s the height of their transfer business over the summer. However, they did have one of the strongest squads last term of course. They did win four of their five pre-season friendlies in the month of July and while there is plenty of experience in their squad, it’s not a particularly young one. We are going to back both teams not to score at even money odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 1st, 2018 at 8:17 p.m.) as Villa collected a clean sheet in 43% of their away games last season but aren’t particularly prolific in front of goal.

Hull v Aston Villa Head to Head

Both league meetings last season ended in a draw and three of the last six have ended in parity. Hull are unbeaten in their last three home games against the Villains (W1 D2) so they do have that on their side. Both teams have scored in just three of the last thirteen meetings between Villa and Hull across all competitions.

Who will win – Hull v Aston Villa Predictions

We are just going to back the draw in this one. It’s early season so it’s not entirely clear how either side are going to be lining up. Neither club have made drastic changes to their respective squads over the summer and on the back of the draw matches last season, we are sticking with that trend for our Hull v Aston Villa betting tip.
