Leicester V Aston Villa Tips – 18/10/20
In what has already been an intriguing Matchweek 5 in the Premier League, this Midlands Derby also has the potential to be another must watch - if you're prepared to fork out £14.95 that is!
Leicester V Aston Villa Odds
Going into this match, Villa are probably just the form team. Both have 9 points, with Villa having played a match less.
Leicester started the season with three straight wins, including a 5-2 win over Manchester City. They then followed that with a 3-0 home defeat to West Ham.
Was the West Ham defeat just one of those days? Possibly. or maybe it was a sign of things to come for the Foxes.

The Foxes look a threat on the counter attack
Two of the three previous wins came away from home, meaning Leicester could absorb pressure and hit teams on the counter attack. While the home win over Burnley was a strange match, in which the Clarets did have their chances.
I get the feeling that Leicester could have more problems at the King Power this season, than away from home.
For Villa, what a start to the season for Dean Smith's team. They've won three from three, and that includes the unbelievable 7-2 win over Liverpool on Matchweek 4.
So could we see the footballing equivalent of after the Lord Mayor's Show today?
Well in all honesty. are Villa going to better that? Probably not. That said, if they can keep performing to the standards of their previous two match, which is more realistic, then they will have an okay season.
Leicester V Aston Villa Prediction
Both teams to score in this one is 8/15, and while I think it will happen, it still looks a touch short.
Over 2.5 goals is 8/13, which also looks a touch short.
Add to that the fact you need three goals for that bet to win, compared to potentially just two goals for Both Teams To Score, and there is not much value in either bet.
For this reason, I'm going to stick my neck out and go for Over 3.5 Goals at 8/5.
