Why Bet on Aston Villa?

Aston Villa is having its best season in decades, not only because they are qualifying for the next Champions League, but also because they are in the semifinals of the Conference League. The Villans won 3-1 in their last presentation in the English league, their victim Bournemouth. The goals came from Morgan Rogers, Moussa Diaby, and Leon Bailey. 

Coach Unai Emery’s team is one of the best home sides in the competition, with 38 points. They have lost only three times in 17 appearances, winning 12. In addition, Aston Villa has one of the best players this season: English striker Ollie Watkins, who has 19 goals and 12 assists. 

No player in the English league has more goal participation than him. There are 31 for the Villa player, while Chelsea’s Cole Palmer has 29. But Watkins is not the only big scorer in the side, as Jamaican Bailey has 10 goals and nine assists. 

Emery has a host of injuries, including Tyrone Mings, Alex Moreno, Boubacar Kamara, Jacob Ramsey, and Nicolo Zaniolo. 

Why Bet on Chelsea?

Chelsea has had a season to forget. They did not fight to win the Premier League, failed to win a local cup, and this year, did not even compete in a European tournament. The Blues have just been humiliated 5-0 against Arsenal, starring in one of their biggest embarrassments of the season and moving away from the European places. Cole Palmer, who has been their great figure, was not present. 

The striker has been the great revelation of the season for this team after arriving at the end of the summer market. Palmer is in the first position for the Golden Boot, tied with Erling Haaland, however, the Chelsea player has nine assists. This could be his consolidation campaign in England, after some years at Manchester City being a substitute without much relevance for Pep Guardiola. 

At away level, Pochettino’s team had three unbeaten games until the loss to the Gunners, but there have been more defeats (7) than victories (5). Winning is already a matter of honor for Chelsea, which has just been eliminated in the FA Cup semifinals against City. Moreover, they want to stay in the fight to, at least, qualify for the Conference League. 

The injured are Levi Colwill, Wesley Fofana, Reece James, Romeo Lavia, Christopher Nkunku, and Ugochukwu.

Final Betting Analysis: Aston Villa vs. Chelsea

They have met three times this season, twice in the FA Cup and once in the Premier League. One win for each side and one draw. The only time they played at Villa Park, the Blues won. 

The numbers at Gambyl Exchange have Aston Villa as the favorite. Their Moneyline shows 2.467, Chelsea has 2.785, and the draw is at 3.985. 

Chelsea has improved in the second half of the season, but this will not help them to qualify for any European competition. We picked two times Aston Villa to win the FA Cup. The third time is the charm, they say, so we’ll pick the Villians again for a 3-2 win.

Go for a win for Aston Villa. If you bet $100 at 2.467, you will gain $146 for a total payout of $246.
