Who is the Aston Villa v Leeds United Favourite?Most of the top brands are backing the hosts for this one, who have been mightily impressive in recent weeks.
The Villains are priced at 13/10 with BetVictor and it’s no real surprise with the side averaging three per game and having only conceded two, despite having faced Leicester and Liverpool in recent weeks.
Leeds United, who have won two of their five games, alongside a draw against Manchester City can be backed at 2/1, while the draw is priced at 5/2.
Of their six games played in the Championship since 2016, Aston Villa have won just one, with three draws and two Leeds wins. During the 2018/19 season, the last time the sides met, Leeds enjoyed a 3-2 win at Villa Park, with the sides drawing 1-1 at Elland Road.
A close encounter looks likely again, with Leeds having kept it tight in all their games this season, aside from their comfortable victory over Fulham.
Our Aston Villa v Leeds United Predictions
Backing Bielsa’s men may well be worth a punt at 2/1, while the win and BTTS would be more likely at 17/4.
However, we can see a draw in this one and BTTS which is priced at 7/2 with BetVictor. Both sides have been involved in some real thrillers so far and we can see a 2-2 in this one at 12/1.
The Aston Villa - Draw HT/FT market may also be an appealing punt at 16/1, with the home side keen to get off to a good start, but it really is a game that could go either way.
