Seeley’s Selections – Aston Villa v West BromStats
Aston Villa v West Brom
The Premier League is back with a full mid-week calendar this week and before we get too excited about it, BT have decided to screen a belter with the clash between Aston Villa and West Brom from Villa Park.
This has the potential or lack of it to be one of the dullest 90 minutes of the Premier League season so far and I can’t see many goals.
Villa could have made a huge error in appointing Tim Sherwood in the Villa Park hot-seat and the former Tottenham boss is still waiting for his first point in charge at his new club and I don’t think he will be getting it in this Midlands derby. Surprisingly, the home side are BoyleSports’ 13/8 favourites for this one but nobody could really be tempted by that price about the lowest scorers in the division.
Sherwood has said that his side need six wins to stay in the Premier League which is a very bold, and in my opinion, a stupid statement as his side have only the five in their 27 league matches this season and the Championship looks very likely next. West Brom have found some great form in recent weeks and at a very generous 21/10 with BoyleSports, I really can’t see past them in this one.
Tony Pulis is working his magic yet again this time at the Hawthorns and his side are looking more and more like a Pulis team after keeping clean sheets in their last four matches and another one in this one looks very likely as well.
I really like the visitors, and also for them not to concede and Villa not scoring, a West Brom win to nil at the nice price of 7/2 with BoyleSports also looks some value.
One thing that is a banker in this one is that there won’t be many goals. Under 2.5 goals in the game is at just 1/2 with BoyeSports, which is of the shortest prices in a Premier League game but it’s very hard to oppose as is under 1.5 goals in the match at 6/4 with BoyleSports.
If you want a better return for your money a West Brom 1-0 victory is a nice play at the 11/2 with BoyleSports and it’s impossible to look past Saido Berahino at 6/1 to get it after the Baggies striker hit a wonderstrike at the weekend against Southampton.
