Given their dominance in terms of possession as well as attempts at goal, Aston Villa may consider the 2-2 stalemate with Sunderland as two points dropped and as they have failed to win any of their last three Premier League outings, Tim Sherwood’s men might have been grateful for the international break.
Having time to take stock however, isn’t expected to do the Villans any favours this weekend according to bookmakers, bet365 making them odds-on at 17/20 to return from Leicester City empty-handed.
It’s 7/2 (Paddy Power) to simply be a score draw and bet365 chalk the clash up at 5/1 to be all square at the end of each half but the Foxes bubble could be about to worse so the Villans could pick up a positive result.
They aren’t convincing enough to be backed outright of course but a case can be made for Winner.com’s marked against the visitors in the ‘Draw No Bet’ market.
Elsewhere, punters fancying Villa to do the business can back them at chunky prices; bet365 for example offer 14/1 for about Sherwood’s side sneaking it 2-1 and less specifically Skybet quote 11/2 for an away triumph by a one-goal margin.
