Aston Villa are at a price of 3.10 to win the game. Even though Smith started his reign with a 1-0 win over Swansea, Villa were not spectacular by any means. On the other hand, Norwich were able to justify their victory over Nottingham Forest after a fine performance. Even though they lacked confidence at the start of the game, Farke’s men created enough chances and were also relatively clinical in set-piece situations. Norwich have picked up three consecutive home wins over Villa and our preview would back more of the same.

Correct Score odds
Both teams carry a significant attacking threat but Norwich certainly have the edge over Aston Villa. Farke’s men may have required set-piece situations in order to overcome Nottingham Forest but the team created several opportunities even from open play. Villa still have a long way to go before they start to exploit the talent of their players. Our correct score prediction would go with a Norwich 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The recent game between Norwich and Aston Villa at Carrow Road produced more than 2.5 goals and this may be a sign of things to come in this upcoming match with both teams having decent attacking potential coming into the fixture. Villa (9) may have scored two goals more than Norwich (7) in the last six games but it is the home team who have the edge in this match. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Teemu Pukki is once again unavailable due to injury and Jordan Rhodes will lead the line-up. Rhodes scored against Villa when he was playing with Sheffield Wednesday last season. This was his only goal in two games against Villa. Still, our first goalscorer prediction would back Jordan Rhodes.
