Aston Villa Betting Preview

Aston Villa needs to forget about everything that happened to them in the first game of the season. Aston Villa faced off against Newcastle and the defense was awful giving up five goals on the way to the defeat. Moussa Diaby did score in the 11th minute but that was really the only success that the offense had. Aston Villa had 47 percent of the possession and six shots on target. Aston Villa captain Mings was gearing up for a big season but he was hurt in the first game and now he will miss the next couple of months with a knee injury. Jacob Ramsey, Alex Moreno, Leander Dendoncker, Bertrand Traore, and  Timothy Iroegbunam are all dealing with injuries and won’t be able to go here. 

Everton Betting Preview

Everton faced off against Fulham in the first game of the season and the offense couldn’t get anything going. Everton had nine shots on target and outshot Fulham by seven, but they allowed Fulham to score in one of the two shots they allowed. Everton had 40 percent of the possession. Youssef Chermiti has a lot of expectations surronding him this season but it’s unclear if he’s going to be able to go in this game. Jack Harrison is dealing with a knee injury, and he’s also not able to go here. 

Shane’s Free Pick

The biggest issue for Everton this season is going to be scoring goals, and they are going to really struggle again in this game. Everton isn’t going to have many scoring chances, and that is going to be the difference here. Aston Villa will score at least one goal, and that will be enough to get the job done. Back Aston Villa to win this game, and secure a money line vicory.
