Competition: Premier League
Market: Aston Villa to win against Stoke City
Odds: 6/4 @ Betfair
Aston Villa host Stoke City in the Premier League this weekend, and are hoping to finally end their wait for a win. Tim Sherwood’s side haven’t picked up maximum points in a game since the opening day, and pressure from the supporters is starting to mount as a result. The Midlands outfit are once again embroiled in a relegation battle early on following their slow start, but victory over the struggling Potters could see them claw their way out of the drop zone.
Currently 18th in the Premier League table after seven games, Aston Villa are two points adrift of safety. Victory will see them swap places with Stoke this weekend, but it won’t be easy given recent form. Six games without a league win sees Sherwood desperate for any type of result on Saturday, and matters aren’t helped with Stoke picking up momentum in recent weeks. City have four points from a possible six, and have won three of their last four meetings against Villa.
As a result of such dominance in the Premier League, as well as Stoke boasting a strong attacking squad of players for their trip to Villa Park, Villa will have a tough task of getting a result. Nevertheless, the Potters’ woeful away form (two away wins in the whole of 2015) sees Villa with a real opportunity of getting all three points. Betfair are giving odds of 6/4 for the home side to come out on top as a result.
