Aston Villa vs Leeds Betting Tip: Under 2.5 Goals
Under 2.5 goals looks like really good value in this.
While Leeds have a couple of crazy matches at the start of the season, things appear to have settled down for Marcelo Bielsa’s men, with none of their last three in the league seeing more than two goals scored.
As for Villa, their much-improved defence has seen them solidify themselves as the side with the very best record at the back in the Premier League, and I can see them building on this against talented Leeds.
While a goal-fest could easily be around the corner here, 6/5 for under 2.5 goals, considering how Leeds have played in their last few games, as well as looking at Villa’s defensive strength, is great value.
There are plenty of goalscorers on each side, but looking at the two teams’ last outings—Villa’s 1-0 win over Leicester and Leeds’ 1-0 defeat against Wolves—I’m happy taking this price for under three goals.
Aston Villa vs Leeds Odds
Villa will kick-off as favourites on Friday evening, although they remain odds-against. Can Leeds end their flawless start to the season, or will Dean Smith’s men continue marching on?
