Villa vs Blackburn Preview & Betting


Villans a steal at 3/4 to roll over Rovers
Aston Villa look to hold all the aces in their game against Blackburn today (3pm KO) and look a solid bet at 3/4 to notch their first home victory of the new season.

The Villans were lucky to get a point in the 0-0 draw with Fulham at Craven Cottage where they managed just one shot on goal and owed a share of the spoils to an outstanding performance by keeper Shay Given.

However Blackburn fared just as bad in their 2-1 home defeat by Wolves, where their fans were treated to just two efforts on target.

That’s a deplorable stat when playing at home, and with Chris Samba, Ryan Nelson and Brett Emerson likely to be on the sidelines they will surely struggle to contain Villa’s striking trio of Heskey, Bent and Agbonlahor.

Recommended bet: 10pts win Villa (3/4 Betfred, Paddy Power, totesport)
