Stalemate Stands Out At Villa Park

Football Betting: Live on Skysports 1: Sun 13.30 & 16.00 Aston Villa must shrug off recent defeats but Everton will want to kick start their own season; a draw might be all they get.

A solitary point from games against Blackburn and Wolves is exactly the kind of sluggish start to the campaign Everton were hoping to avoid and with a trip to Aston Villa up next, followed by the visit of Manchester United; David Moyes’ men are risking falling off the pace again.

Today’s clash at Villa Park is crucial then, for both sides; the hosts of course having been stunned 6-0 at Newcastle on Sunday before collapsing as they were eliminated from the Europa League on Thursday but it’s Kevin McDonald’s men that nevertheless shade favouritism in most places; Victor Chandler pricing them at 13/8 while a first Toffees success of the campaign is quoted at 2/1 by Betdaq.

However, although David Moyes’ troops can undoubtedly expect something of a Villa backlash, the draw perhaps looks the best bet at odds of 23/10 with Betfred in a tough-to-call showdown that is 11/2 (Totesport) to finish one-each.

Gabriel Agbonlahor could be a key figure if declared fit for Villa. The pacy striker netted against Rapid Vienna on Thursday, before being withdrawn and he’s 9/4 (Paddy Power) to get on the scoresheet at any stage.

William Hill have installed Bolton as 6/5 favourites ahead of their clash with Birmingham at the Reebok Stadium, where the Blues are 13/5 with Stan James. However, like the clash at Villa Park, this one has plenty of draw potential and at 12/5 (Ladbrokes), the stalemate is the most appealing wager.

For the ambitious, Jaxx.com post 14/1 against a 2-2 scoreline but in what should be a high-scoring encounter, a safer bet is Betfred’s chunky 6/5 for the contest to produce three or more goals. It could be a physical contest and it would be no surprise if set pieces played an important part in proceedings, so towering City marksman Nikola Zigic looks decent value at 3/1 (Ladbrokes) to find the net at some point.

Also on Sunday Liverpool entertain West Brom and it’s hard to envisage anything other than a victory for the hosts, who are just 2/9 with bet365 to come out on top and 17/20 (Partybets) to win ‘to nil’ at Anfield. Finally, Sunderland and Manchester City go head-to-head at the Stadium of Light where it’s the latter, at 5/6 with 888Sport that should secure maximum points.
