Aston Villa v Liverpool betting
The afternoon game on Sunday sees two sides going head to head that have struggled to find the back of the net this season. There are 3 league places and 7 points between the two clubs and they have both scored only 18 league goals in 15 games. Will it be another low scoring game then, or will they begin to find their goal scoring touch?
Aston Villa vs Liverpool odds
Aston Villa are currently sitting in a respectable 8th place in the league, but it seems many fans are still getting used to former Birmingham boss Alex McLeish. The main problem Villa have had this season is scoring goals, and McLeish has favoured a conservative approach when taking on the bigger sides in the league so far. Their home form has been rather indifferent as well, winning just 3 of their 7 games. This is why Aston Villa are outsiders going into the game, with odds of 4.2 available from Bet365 for a home win. With Gabriel Agbonlahor suspended the job of finding an elusive goal will fall at the feet of Darren Bent. Although he has struggled so far this season, the England striker has been prolific over the past few seasons and is always a good bet to open the scoring. Odds of 7.5 are available from Paddy Power for this and those will almost certainly shorten by kick off.
Liverpool are going into this game with Aston Villa looking for back to back wins in the league for the first time since the end of September and beginning of October. Much like Villa, Liverpool have really struggled to score goals so far this season. However, they haven’t had any trouble making chances, it’s putting them away that has been the problem. There is some good value in an away win after Liverpool have struggled a little on the road so far this season, so betting on a 1-0 away win with odds of 7.0 from Betfred, looks very good. Luis Suarez started the season well, but has struggled to find the net recently. Still, he looks like The Red’s most likely source of a goal, so betting on the Uruguayan striker to score at any time with odds of 2.4 from Paddy Power, could bring a decent return.
Darren Bent 1st goal scorer – 7.5 Paddy Power
1-0 away WIN – 7.0 Betfred
Luis Suarez anytime scorer – 2.4 Paddy Power
Under 1.5 goals – 3.4 Stan James
