Bet of the Day: Leeds and Villa to cancel each other out

Top duo gunning for big-time return

Leeds United and Aston Villa clash under the lights at Elland Road on Friday night in the Championship.

The two promotion hopefuls will be aiming for three points in their bid to make it back to the Premier League.

Leeds and Villa are traditionally two of English football’s biggest names. Both clubs are steeped in history with significantly large fan-bases.

And both teams are in good form. Villa have won three straight while Leeds have won two of their last three games.

This is the start of a seven-game run between now and the New Year. While three points are important, neither side will want to lose.

Three of the last six meetings between these two have finished level. That seems the best way to play it here again.

Coral’s Bet of the Day is the Draw at 21/10.

Tight and tense in West Yorkshire

As mentioned previously, both sides are in good form but neither side will want to lose.

And, in the recent past, there haven’t been many goals in this fixture. In fact, just one meeting in the last seven has seen Over 2.5 Goals.

In addition, just two of those seven games has seen both teams score. Under 2.5 Goals is at 4/6. You can back Both Teams To Score – No at 20/23.

If you’re feeling particularly brave, the Draw and Under 2.5 Goals is priced at 27/10.

Can Adomah continue his hot streak?

With Jonathan Kodjia suffering from injuries, Aston Villa have relied on a number of other outlets for goals.

But it has been Albert Adomah who has really stepped up to the plate. The winger has scored five goals in his last three games with a tally of 11 goals in all competitions.

The former Middlesbrough player is 9/2 to score first, and 7/4 to find the net anytime.

For Leeds, Ezgjan Alioski has found the net in each of his last four games. The Macedonian is 12/5 to score anytime.
