Shane’s Free Pick
This isn’t my favorite game on the board just because there has been some inconsistency. Aston Villa failed to score any goals in the last game, and they are going to really struggle to score again in this game. Tottenham Hotspur might not run up the score, but they are going to score at least one goal, and that is going to be the difference here as they get the job done. Back Tottenham Hotspur on the money line.
