Aston Villa vs Leeds United – Predictions & Football Betting Tips
Aston Villa welcome table-toppers Leeds United to Villa Park for Sunday’s early Championship kick-off. Villa have remained unbeaten since the start of November but their recent trend of securing draws has kept them outside the playoff positions by three points. Leeds, meanwhile, are at the top of the summit after managing the perfect record since the last international break. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Villa secured a draw for the third occasion in four matches after settling for a 2-2 scoreline against Stoke City. Jonathan Kodija netted for the Villains in the final 10 minutes to hand a share of the spoils.
Leeds, though, bagged a fifth-straight league win after overcoming Bolton Wanderers by a slender 1-0 margin. Patrick Bamford was the pick of the players after clinching the winner shortly after the hour mark.
Villa Park witnessed the previous meeting between the sides in April 2018 where Villa won by a 1-0 scoreline. Lewis Grabban bagged the winner early in the second period. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a low-scoring draw.

Leeds are given a price of 2.90 for a victory and the same has been fancied for Villa at 2.37. Marcelo Bielsa’s side are undoubtedly the in-form Championship side with five successive wins and four clean sheets but we are expecting this run to cease at Villa Park, who possess an in-form Tammy Abraham in their ranks. Still, our preview only predicts a share of the spoils.

Aston Villa win odds: 2.37
Leeds United win odds: 2.90
Correct Score odds
Villa have been the league’s leading scorers since the last international break and they have netted 16 goals when compared to Leeds’ seven in the past five matches. Despite this, a low-scoring affair may be on the cards with the visitors unlikely to offer the Villains with the scoring freedom amid their sublime defensive record of late. Our correct score prediction is to go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The fixture has historically produced low-scoring matches with the previous five meetings at Villa Park witnessing not more than two goals. Leeds’ previous two outings against Bolton Wanderers and Sheffield United have taken the same trend with 1-0 being the eventual outcome. Our total goals prediction is to go with less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Tammy Abraham has been a revelation for Villa this term and he has already amassed 13 goals in the Championship. The Chelsea loanee has netted a staggering seven goals in the past five appearances, although none have opened the scoresheet for the West Midlands side. Still, our first goalscorer prediction would back Abraham to find the breakthrough against the league leaders.
