Villa value at 31/20 to outsmart the Foxes

Aston Villa play host to Leicester today (4pm KO, Live on Sky Sports 1) and the home side look worth a punt at 31/20 with bet365 to come out on top in what is likely to be a scrappy and hard fought affair.

The stats are certainly good as far as Villa are concerned as they have lost just one of their last seven league games against the Foxes (W3, D3).

The Villans also come into the game on an unbeaten run of four (drawn 3) and gained an ocerdue success in their last match when beating Crystal Palace 1-0.

They face a side who have lost five of thier last six games, and are finding life tough in the top flight.

To me Villa have enough class to bag another three points, and Christian Benteke makes plenty of appeal at 11/2 with BetVictor and Ladbrokes to bag the opener and fire them to success.

Over 2.5 goals also looks worth a wager at 23/20 with BetVictor and Coral given that the last three ecnounters between the pair seen 13 netted – an average of 4.3 per game.

Another interesting stat is that  Leicester have scored in each of their last nine league trips to Villa Park, so both teams to score at 10/11 with Coral and William Hill is also worth a punt.
