Manchester United vs Aston Villa 16 April 2016: EPL Preview and Predictions

After managing to make the semi-finals of the FA Cup midweek, Manchester United have the easiest game in the Premier League as the host Aston Villa in a game which is almost a sure win for the Red Devils. This has not been an easy season for United but things are getting better as we approach the latter stages of the season and this match should be an indication of that.

Aston Villa confirmed that they would be relegated last weekend but that news has been near certain for a long time in a now. This team has been losing so much lately that it is not even funny anymore. As we look into this match the only thing I see happening is them losing.  This is a bit disappointing but it seems to be true. I expect a big loss as well so I think we have a lot of value betting on Manchester United with a handicap so that is definitely a good bet.

In addition to that bet, I think that betting on the over 2.5 goals is also an amazing option. We can expect Villa to concede more than 3 goals alone so this is a pretty safe bet in my opinion. We are getting a fair price here, not the best, so it is worth it in my opinion. We almost always get there with this bet since Aston Villa have been shocking at the back this season while Manchester United in recent weeks have been scoring quite a few goals. A high scoring game for United is expected and that is why I love this bet.

This is an easy game for United but there is still value in it as far as betting is concerned. We have quite a few picks for this game so I am going to be watching for that sake alone.
