Reason For Sheffield United vs Aston Villa Betting Tips

  • Aston Villa were beaten in six of their eight Premier League away games this season.
  • Villa could drop into the bottom three with another defeat on Saturday.
  • Sheffield United lost just once in their last nine top-flight outings.
  • The Blades scored just 1.18 goals per 90 minutes on average this term.

Sheffield United looking to build on Norwich win

Sheffield United bounced back from their surprise 0-2 reverse at home to Newcastle by beating Norwich last Sunday – a win that also halted the Blades run of four games without a victory.

Draws against Tottenham, Man Utd and Wolves during that stretch could hardly be described as poor results, though the feeling that the Blades might have taken more from those games is testament to how well Sheffield United have adapted to life in the top flight.

Having faced and turned over one of the clubs they were promoted from the Championship with in the summer at Carrow Road, the Blades will be aiming to repeat the trick when they host play-off winners Aston Villa at Bramall Lane on Saturday.

Villa not winning enough points

The Villains have shown plenty of promise at times this season, but after their 4-1 hammering at the hands of high-flying Leicester City last weekend, Dean Smith’s men are just one more poor result away from sinking into the Premier League’s bottom three.

Villa’s run of one win, one draw and six defeats from eight Premier League matches is a poor return for a team that tend to be competitive against most of the opponents they face.

Smith’s charges have in fact, scored in each of their last 11 league assignments, and six of their nine defeats this season were lost by single goal margins.

Their record of just three clean sheets in 16 Premier League matches highlights where Villa’s problems lie however, and the team’s backline has looked particularly fragile on the road where they have yet to keep their hosts of the scoresheet.

Both teams likely to score

The attacking threat that Villa carry on their travels (1.5 goals per 90 minutes) and their nasty habit of consistently conceding makes them a terrific option in the both teams to score market most weeks.

Both teams hit the net in 75% of their eight Premier League away games since August, and it’s in that BTTS market that we feel drawn to for their latest test at Sheffield United

Sheffield United have been mixing lax defending with a cutting edge at the opposite end too in recent weeks, with both teams registering in four of the Blades’ last five games.

But while we expect United to both score and concede again this weekend, our correct score prediction tips Chris Wilder’s men to eventually emerge as 2-1 victors. Villa are winless in four Premier League games on the road, and they conceded exactly two goals in the most recent three of those contests.

Averaging just 1.16 goals per game this season, Sheffield United have lacked the quality in forward areas to hit high scores this term, though they can still capitalise on Villa’s lacklustre away form this weekend.
