Aston Villa: 4.75 Draw: 3.60 Man City: 1.72 See the Latest Odds
Ok, so Aston Villa ended up overcoming their little hiccup in the previous stage of the competition only to get would up drawing Manchester City in what is sure to be an elimination for men from Birmingham as they host the likes of Aguero, Silva and Yaya in this round of the FA Cup. This is a game between two teams who are on entirely different planets at the moments but it is the cup and anything can happen so I will surely be watching.
We all know how good Manchester City are and considering this is the main knockout tournament in England, I think that they will play their best players and that can only mean bad news of Aston Villa. This is a team filled with so much talent and every they step onto the field; you have to back them to win. Furthermore, I think that they will have a big win as well since they are more than capable and their opponents are terrible at the best of time in comparison.

Villa will hope to play a tight game and possibly sneak a winner but I doubt it since they are simply not good enough in my opinion. This is a side filled with potential but it is not organized and not yet ready so I can only see defeat for the hosts here.
As far as gambling, we should take the over 2.5 goals here. The hosts will not win and taking a handicap on the away side is too much of a risk in my opinion. This bet on the other hand is getting a good enough price and is relatively safe since both teams should score in this game due to the set ups of the sides and the attacking talent that Man City have at their disposal.
