Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Villa have witnessed four consecutive games with more than 2.5 goals, but the team are generally poor when it comes to scoring away goals.

Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Tammy Abraham has been able to pounce on 23 league goals so far in the campaign. He has now scored in back-to-back games for Villa. The striker not only has the responsibility of getting Villa back into the Premier League with his goals, but he is also in a race with Pukki for the Golden Boot title. He is once again finding his form after a small goal drought. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Tammy Abraham.
