Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Ipswich Town were beaten by a late goal by Rotherham’s Matt Smith during the weekend. This was followed by a League Cup exit at the hands of Exeter City.
Aston Villa maintained a 100% start to the season after a late win over Wigan. The 3-2 win over the newly-promoted team was followed by a 1-0 win over Yeovil Town in the League Cup.
Villa were able to pick up a 4-0 win over Ipswich in the recent visit to Portman Road. The opposition played with 10-men for much of the game. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Aston Villa.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Aston Villa win at 2.10[/bet_tip_now]
Ipswich are given a price of 3.90 despite being the hosts. This is largely due to the poor start to the season for Paul Hurst and his team. After the departure of several key players like Martin Waghorn, Ipswich do have the look of a depleted team. Villa are in a contrasting situation as the team has been able to retain the services of Jack Grealish while strengthening the squad to a certain extent in the summer. Our preview would opt for an Aston Villa win.

Ipswich Town vs Aston Villa draw odds: 3.40
Ipswich Town win odds: 3.90
Correct Score odds
Villa do look decent going forward while the departure of quality centre forwards like Martin Waghorn does deplete Ipswich’s ability to find the back of the net on a consistent basis. Ipswich have a very poor scoring record against Villa after managing just two goals in the last five meetings while the Midlands outfit have been able to get eight goals during the same period. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 2-0 win for Aston Villa.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Since scoring twice against Blackburn on the opening day, Ipswich have faced setbacks in terms of the squad. Villa, meanwhile, have been able to get more than 2.5 goals in both league outings, but the midweek exertions are likely to have its effect towards the end of the game. Our total goals prediction would go with less than 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals under 2.5 at 1.65[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Jonathan Kodjia is likely to be recalled to the starting line-up after missing out on the game against Exeter City. The Ivory Coast forward is looking to hit the same heights of the 2016-17 season when he came up with 19 goals. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Kodjia.
