Brentford will welcome in-form Aston Villa to the Gtech Community Stadium on Sunday, and this is a Premier League match that should have plenty for the neutrals. Brentford are one of those inconsistent sides that can give anyone a game on their day, while Aston Villa have been the surprise package of the Premier League this season, sitting just two points off of the top. Who will pick up the three important points that are on offer? You can find out the answer to this question in my prediction below.

🏆 Brentford vs Aston Villa

Brentford are one of those teams that has always impressed me since they seem to constantly punch above their weight. They do not spend as much money as other clubs in the EPL, yet they still always seem to be hovering around mid-table. As if to prove my point, they are currently sitting in 11th place with 19 points, meaning that they have a 10-point cushion over the relegation zone. However, their form has dipped slightly as they have won just once in their previous seven matches.

Aston Villa, on the other hand, are flying at the moment, and are sitting in 3rd place in the table, just two points off Liverpool, who occupy first. From their last 10 matches, they have picked up 8 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss, and there are now talks of whether they can go on and win the title. Not only are they finding the net with ease, but they are also pretty tight in defence.

Villa have been imperious at home, winning 15 matches in a row, including recent victories over Manchester City and Arsenal, but their away form has been a bit hit-and-miss, which will give Brentford and their fans hope. From their last five away matches, they have 2 wins, 2 draws, and a loss. I am backing this match to end in a 1-1 draw due to Villa's sketchy away form and the fact that 6 of the previous 11 matches between these two matches have ended all square.

My Prediction: 🏆 Brentford 1 Villa 1 ⚽

💯 Brentford vs Aston Villa Match Odds

Brentford vs Aston Villa: Match Winner Odds

Given the fact that Aston Villa have just dispatched Arsenal and Manchester City in their last two Premier League matches it is not surprising that Villa are the favourites with the bookies to win this game. You can find their match winner odds below, and they do offer some decent value, especially if you like to place accumulators.

Brentford vs Aston Villa: Both Teams To Score Odds

Only Manchester City and Liverpool have scored more goals than Villa this season, but they have not kept a clean sheet in five of their previous away matches. Brentford, on the other hand, have scored 9 goals in their last five home matches. So, with these stats in mind, it is not a shock that the bookies are predicting both teams to score in this match. The both teams to score odds can be seen below:


Brentford vs Aston Villa: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

When it comes to the Over/Under 2.5 goals market, the bookies are in favour of there being more than 3 goals in this match. This is probably because they are expecting Villa to win but not keep a clean sheet. You can find some top over/under 2.5 goals odds in the following table:

Over 2.5 Goals1.621.621.671.621.66

✔️ Brentford vs Aston Villa - Betting Tips

It is now time for me to give you some of my top football betting tips for this Brentford v Aston Villa clash.

  • Tip 1: Bet on a Draw: After wins against Arsenal and Manchester City, many football bettors will probably be eager to put money on Villa to win, but I cannot look past their away form. In recent weeks they have lost to Nottingham Forest away and needed a late goal to snatch a draw at Bournemouth. Playing Brentford is never easy as they fight for everything, so I would not be surprised to see the points shared. You can find odds of 3.70 for this outcome at William Hill.
  • Tip 2: Bet on Both Teams to Score: Aston Villa might struggle at times away from home, but they rarely struggle to find the back of the net. On the other hand, Brentford have plenty of attacking talent at their disposal, and I can see them putting the ball past Emiliano Martinez. Those who want to back BTTS can find odds of 1.57 at Spreadex Sports.
  • Tip 3: Bet on Kamara to be Booked: Betting on a player to pick up a booking can be a fun market, and if you like to try your luck with such a bet type, I recommend that you bet on Kamara to be booked for Villa. He has already picked up 6 yellow cards this season, so he is no stranger to entering the referee's notebook. Betiton Sport currently have odds of 3.00 for him to be cautioned.

1️⃣ Brentford Update

Brentford finished in 9th place in the 2022/23 season, just 3 points adrift of a Conference League spot, and this was mostly down to the fine form of Ivan Toney. However, he picked up an eight-match ban for breaking strict gambling rules, and it is fair to say that they have missed his lethality in front of goal. In 16 league matches, they are averaging 1.44 goals per match. The good thing for Brentford fans though is the fact that they are solid defensively, conceding 22 goals in 16 games - this is better than 13 other teams.

2️⃣ Aston Villa Update

If you had told Aston Villa fans in August that they would be two points off the top with Christmas fast approaching, they would have laughed in your face, taken a breath, and then laughed some more. However, Unai Emery has done wonders with this Villa team - they have won their last 15 home matches and are scoring just over 2 goals per match. If they can sort out their patchy away form, then there is a good chance that Champions League football will be making its way to Villa Park next season.

In the past, this Villa team used to have a weak mentality - I would not have trusted any of them with my dog because they could not hold on to a lead. However, as we head into week 17 of the EPL, they are the only team that has not lost points from a winning position. They do not know when they are beaten either, as can be seen from their comeback wins against Spurs and their late equaliser against Bournemouth.

Emery does not have any additional injuries to contend with ahead of this clash with Bournemouth, but he will have to make two changes since Douglas Luiz and Lucas Digne will have to serve a one-match suspension. You can find the full list of absentees below:
