Aston Villa v Leicester tips

December 5th, 2014

Aston Villa take on Leicester at Villa Park on Sunday and the game is live on SkySports 1 from 4pm.

Bet365 offer the best price on a home win at 7/5, while Leicester can be backed at 23/10 with Ladrokes and Coral and the draw at 12/5 with Bet365.

Villa have suffered only had one defeat at the hands of the Foxes in their last seven league meetings (W3, D2) and while Paul Lambert's team have only scored eight goals all season (that’s the worst goal scoring record in the league) Leicester have conceded 24 goals - the second worst record of any Premier League side - and we expect Villa to finally to score more than one goal for the first (and only) time since 31st August.

Leicester have also lost exactly 2-0 in four of their seven away fixtures this season, and so we suggest taking BetVictor's over generous 13/1 on another 2-0 Leicester defeat here (as low as 8/1 with Ladbrokes).

But we also suggest backing the 2-1 Aston Villa win at 9/1 with BetVictor, given that Leicester have scored on each of their last nine league trips to Villa Park.

Christian Benteke scored his first goal since March in Villa's 1-0 win against Crystal Palace on Tuesday and that could signal a return to form for the Belgian striker whose year has been wrecked by injury, after having scored 23 goals in the 2012-13 season. He is 5/1 with Paddy Power to score first in this game.
