We have a couple of relegation clashes in this round of Premier League matches, but this match between West Ham and Aston Villa at the London Stadium is certainly not one of those. Aston Villa are battling it out with Tottenham Hotspur for 4th spot, while West Ham still have their eyes on booking themselves a spot in next season's Europa League. Will Villa get an important three points on their quest for Champions League football, or will West Ham boost their Europa League dreams? Read on and you will find out more views.

🏆 West Ham vs Aston Villa: Who Will Win?

David Moyes must get sick of being the manager of West Ham at times as their fans are extremely fickle at times. The Scotsman led them to European glory last season, but when they lost three matches in a row not too long ago, fans were calling for his head. They have picked up seven points from their previous three matches, so Hammers fans are a little bit happier with life now. They are currently sitting in 7th place, just 4 points adrift of United.

Aston Villa have had a wonderful season, but they sometimes just forget to show up, which was the case at the weekend when they took on Spurs at Villa Park. They lost 4-0, and now this is a must-win match if they want to stay one step ahead of their main rivals for the final UCL spot. While that loss on Sunday was a big blow, they had won three matches in a row before that, so it is not the end of the world.

This should be a close match between two talented sides, but who do I think will come out on top? Well, I think that there will be nothing to choose from between these two sides and that they will need to settle for a point apiece. I am going to go for an entertaining 2-2 draw.

My Prediction: 🏆 West Ham 2 Aston Villa 2 ⚽

💯 West Ham vs Aston Villa Match Odds

When these two teams met at Villa Park last October, the home side came away with a 4-1 win, but it was a closer match than what the scoreline would suggest. Villa were just a little more clinical in front of goal, which proved to be the difference between the two teams. Villa's goals were scored by Luiz (x2), Watkins, and Bailey, while Bowen responded for West Ham.

The odds that are on offer at established and new UK betting sites for this reverse fixture will be based on that result as well as recent form. Below I have provided you with the odds that five quality bookmakers are offering for three fun markets: match winner, over/under 2.5 goals, and both teams to score.

West Ham vs Aston Villa: Match Winner Odds

The bookmakers have Aston Villa as the slight favourites to go on and win this clash, but the odds that are being offered by our five bookies tell us that they definitely do not think a West Ham win or draw is out of the equation. Such matches are good for football bettors because we can find some decent value in the odds that are on offer. Below are the odds that are currently being offered for the match winner of this clash:

Team
West Ham2.672.672.752.802.80
Draw3.603.603.653.703.75
Aston Villa2.292.292.382.322.33

West Ham vs Aston Villa: Both Teams To Score Odds

When it comes to the BTTS market, my five chosen bookmakers are pretty certain that both teams will manage to find the back of the net. Given both teams' recent defensive record, I am in agreement with this, and I will explain more in the next section of this betting guide. For now, just have a gander at the BTTS odds that are available for this match:

Team
Yes1.421.421.441.411.47
No2.582.582.602.552.60

West Ham vs Aston Villa: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

How many goals do the bookmakers think will be scored in this match? Well, they are pretty adamant that there will be three goals scored, while they are also pretty certain that there will be fewer than 4 goals scored. As you already know from my predicted scoreline above, I disagree with this and will explain why in my tips section. For now, I am just going to give you the over/under 2.5 goals odds that are on offer:

Team
Over 2.51.501.501.551.471.49
Under 2.52.372.372.402.452.48

✔️ West Ham vs Aston Villa - Betting Tips

Whether you are betting with your own money or making use of free bets, it is important to always do plenty of research before finalising your wagers. One thing that I always recommend is to take a look at some top betting tips from experienced football bettors. It is for this reason that I am now going to give you four pieces of betting advice for this West Ham vs Aston Villa clash:

  • : Tip 1: Bet on a draw: For me, Aston Villa are a little bit better than West Ham, as can be seen from their respective positions in the table. However, West Ham are a quality side on their day, and they will have home advantage in this clash. Neither side will want to lose after suffering disappointing results at the weekend, so I think they will both end up settling for a draw. If you also think that this match will end in a draw, then you can find odds of 3.75 at BetUK Sports.
  • Tip 2: Bet on both teams to score: These teams do not keep many clean sheets, so I am backing both teams to find the back of the net. Villa have kept just the two clean sheets in their previous ten matches, while West Ham have kept just the one. Both teams have scored in 68% of Villa's matches this season, while it stands at 64% for West Ham's 28 matches. I am pretty certain that both teams will score in this match, and if you think the same then you can find odds of 1.47 at BetUK Sports.
  • Tip 3: Bet on Watkins to score: Ollie Watkins has been on absolute fire this season, scoring 16 goals and 10 assists from the 28 matches that he has played in. He is currently one of the best strikers in the league, and he will back himself to score against a team that has been shipping 1.9 goals per match over the last ten matches. If you want to back Watkins to add to his impressive tally, then Mr. Mega Sports are offering odds of 2.40 for him to score.
  • Tip 4: Bet on a 2-2 scoreline: Both teams have some quality attacking players among their ranks, but they have not been too solid defensively this season. I can see there being goals in this game but, ultimately, I think that both teams will have to settle for a share of the spoils. If you think that this game will end 2-2, then Betiton Sport are offering odds of 9.90 for this outcome.

1️⃣ West Ham Update

West Ham are currently sitting in 7th place in the table, having picked up 43 points from the 28 matches that they have played. Throughout the season they are averaging 1.61 goals per match and have been conceding 1.75 goals per game. With 10 games remaining, they will be looking to overtake Man United, who are four points ahead of them, and claim a Europa League spot next season.

When it comes to their form over the last ten rounds of matches, they are sitting in 11th place, with 3 wins, 4 draws, and 3 defeats. During this period, they have scored 14 goals and conceded a total of 19. Below you can see their last five EPL results:

2️⃣Aston Villa Update

Aston Villa fans will have been very disappointed with their capitulation against Spurs at the weekend, but things need to be put into some perspective. In August, if you had told any of us Villa fans that we would be 4th in the table with 10 games to play, we would have snapped your arm off. Villa have been one of the most exciting teams to watch this season, with plenty of goals being scored in their matches.

Over the last ten rounds of matches, Villa are sitting in 8th spot in the table, having picked up 5 wins, 1 draw, and 4 defeats across this period. They have scored 21 goals during this time and conceded 19, which means that their previous ten games have averaged two goals a match. Below are their previous five EPL results:

Unai Emery definitely has not had the same luck as Moyes when it comes to injuries and suspensions. He will be missing six players for this match against West Ham, and you can see the absentees in the following table:
