Villa value to beat Stoke

Aston Villa play host to Stoke today (4pm KO, Live on Sky Sports 1) and look a decent value at the 6/5 on offer with Betfred and BetVictor to emerge victorious.

Paul Lambert’s men have refound some form of late and come into the game seeking a third consecutive home win following their 1-0 defeat of title favourites Chelsea last weekend.

That will will have given them a tremendous boost, and they now face a side who have an awful away record having won won just once on the road all season.

The Potteres are winless in their last 13 on their travels and have also failed to score in six of their last nine away matches.

That suggests that Villa will be relishing taking them on this afternoon, and in Christian Benteke they have a striker who has redsicovered his goal scoring touch and is likely to cause them all sorts of problems.

The big Belgian is a best 9/2 with BetVictor, Coral, Ladbrokes and Paddy Power to net the opener and can also be backed at a tasty standout 8/5 with BetVictor in the anytime scorer market.

Both of those prices make plenty of appeal from a punting perspective.
