aston-villa-vs-brentford-epl-predictions aston-villa-vs-brentford-epl-predictions

When it gets to this stage of the Premier League season, some matches are dead rubbers as both teams have little left to play for. However, this is not the case with this match since Villa need points to guarantee themselves a spot in next season's Champions League, while Brentford are still at risk of being relegated - although I do not think it will happen. Will the three points on offer stay in Birmingham or will they make their way down to the capital? This prediction aims to answer this question for you. Let's crack on!

🏆 Aston Villa vs Brentford: Who Will Win?

Aston Villa had the chance to go five points above Spurs, but Unai Emery decided to field a weakened team against Man City and concede defeat before the match had even started. Villa gave City a good match for the first 45 minutes, but the home side stepped on the gas in the second half and eased themselves to a 4-1 victory courtesy of a Phil Foden hat-trick. After this tactic, nothing less than a win on Saturday will do for Villa, especially since they still need to play Liverpool and Arsenal.

Brentford played Brighton on Wednesday evening and will consider themselves lucky to have come away with a point. They had just two shots on target the whole match, and it is not a game that will live long in the memory of those who watched it. With 28 points on the board, they will feel that another three wins should be enough to book themselves another season in the top flight of English football.

However, I do not see them picking up one of those three wins in this match at Villa Park. I also have a sneaky feeling that Villa will not win either, which could end up putting a big dent in their chances of finishing in 4th place this season. Although 5th could still be enough to see them book a spot in next season's UEFA Champions League. I am going to go for a 1-1 draw in this match.

My Prediction: 🏆Aston Villa 1 Brentford 1 ⚽

💯 Aston Villa vs Brentford Match Odds

When these two teams met on the 17th of December, it was a very feisty affair which Villa ended up winning 2-1. The Bees took the lead on the stroke of half-time when Keane Lewis-Potter scored, but the game turned on its head when Ben Mee was sent off in the 71st minute for an ankle-breaker on Leon Bailey. Six minutes later, Alex Moreno scored the equaliser, and then Ollie Watkins scored the winner with 85 minutes on the clock. The drama was not done though as Boubacar Kamara was sent off in stoppage time.

What betting odds will you be able to find at my favourite established and new UK betting sites for this Aston Villa vs Brentford clash? Well, below I have provided you with the odds that five top bookies are offering in relation to three popular football betting markets - match winner, both teams to score, and over/under 2.5 goals.

🏅 Aston Villa vs Brentford: Match Winner Odds

Since Aston Villa are battling it out for a spot in the UCL and Brentford are battling to stay in the division, it does not take a genius to work out who the bookies have as the favourites to go on and win this match. They have Villa as the most likely winners, while they do not give the Bees much hope of leaving Villa Park with some sort of positive result - Thomas Frank would probably take a draw if you offered it to him now.

If you would like to place a bet on the match winner, then the current odds for this market can be found below:

Aston Villa1.651.651.671.611.62
Draw4.154.154.204.254.25
Brentford4.604.604.755.005.00

⚽ Aston Villa vs Brentford: Both Teams To Score Odds

While the bookies do not believe that Brentford will get any points out of this match, they do feel that Brentford will at least find the back of the net. Villa and clean sheets have hardly been mentioned in the same sentence this season, so it is little surprise to me to see such short odds for both teams to score. If you want to bet on this market, then have a look at the BTTS odds below:

Team
Yes1.501.501.501.481.54
No2.472.472.402.382.43

🥅 Aston Villa vs Brentford: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

These five bookmakers are adamant that there will be over 2.5 goals scored in this match, while they also think that there will be under 3.5 goals. This means that they think a total of three goals will be scored. Since they have Villa as strong favourites and reckon both teams will score, their odds tell us that their predicted scoreline for this match is a 2-1 win for the home side. Below you can have a gander at the over/under 2.5 goals odds:

Team
Over 2.51.491.491.501.441.46
Under 2.52.452.452.552.552.55

✔️ Aston Villa vs Brentford - Betting Tips

In this part of my betting guide, I am going to provide you with four top tips for this Aston Villa v Brentford game. Now, you are well within your rights not to agree with a single thing that I say, but give them a read anyway because you might just find a golden nugget that sits right with you. If you do not, well, these tips are completely free.

  • Tip 1: Bet on a draw: Since the turn of the century, these teams have met 11 times and Villa have won just twice. Although, Villa have only lost once to the Bees in five EPL matches - two wins, two draws, and one loss. Matches between these two sides are usually tight and tense, and I expect this one to be no different. I think they will cancel each other out over the course of 90 minutes, and have to settle for a point apiece. BetUK Sports are currently offering odds of 4.25 for a draw.
  • Tip 2: Bet on both teams to score: From the 31 matches that Villa have played this season, 21 of them have seen both teams find the back of the net. From their home matches, 67% of them have seen both teams score, while 53% of Brentford's away games have seen goals from either side. From the stats, everything points to both teams scoring, and those who would like to bet on this market can find odds of 1.54 at BetUK Sports.
  • Tip 3: Bet on Ollie Watkins to score: Watkins sat out of the defeat to Manchester City, but it is expected that he will be fit to take to the field against Brentford. He has been in fine scoring form this season, with only Erling Haaland having scored more goals than him at this stage. It is fair to say that Watkins will be the player that the Brentford defenders will be most wary of, and they might even put two on him if he plays. If you want to back Watkins to find the back of the net, then Betiton Sport are offering odds of 2.20 for him to score.
  • Tip 4: Bet on a 1-1 scoreline: It is always worth checking out the correct score odds because they can be pretty enticing at the best of times. I think both teams will score in this match, but I do not see there being a winner since this fixture is always a close and tense one. If you want to bet on the correct score and also think that it will finish 1-1, then MR Mega Sports are offering odds of 7.80 at the moment.

Whether you are going to be betting with free bets or with your own hard-earned money, it is vital that you gamble responsibly. You should set yourself a budget and consider setting up a deposit limit so that you do not spend more money than you can afford to potentially lose.

1️⃣Aston Villa Update

Aston Villa's 4-1 defeat to Manchester City kept them in 4th place, but they missed out on the chance to extend their points advantage over Spurs, who drew 1-1 with West Ham. Emery knows the importance of three points in this match against Brentford because it is unlikely that Tottenham are going to drop points against Nottingham Forest. With Liverpool and Arsenal yet to play, Villa need to be beating teams that are in the lower half of the division.

When it comes to recent form, Villa are sitting in 8th place with five wins, one draw, and four losses from their last ten matches. During this time, they have scored an average of 2.00 goals and conceded 1.90 goals. Below you can find their previous five EPL results:

2️⃣Brentford Update

From the 31 matches that they have played, Brentford have managed to pick up a total of 28 points - seven wins, seven draws, and 17 losses. Their main problem this season has been at the back as they have conceded 55 goals, which is more than every other team in the league apart from the three sides that are currently occupying the relegation slots. Just for a laugh, it is worth pointing out that they have actually scored more goals than Man United at the time of writing.

Regarding their form, they are currently sitting in 18th place as they have only managed to collect 6 points from the last 30 that have been available to them. During this time, they have averaged 1.10 goals per game while conceding 1.90 goals. It is easy to see where their main issue lies. Below are their previous five EPL results:
