Aston Villa v Nottingham Forest Premier League Betting Tips 10/10/2022

Aston Villa v Nottingham Forest

Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest have plenty to prove in this fixture after slow starts to the Premier League season, so we’ve penned our thoughts in our free Aston Villa v Nottingham Forest Premier League Betting Tips 10/10/2022. Villa’s hopes of breaking into the top half of the table continue to fail, as wins under Steven Gerrard have been rare. Forest appears to be in crisis after a 4-0 hammering at Midlands rivals Leicester last time out. With both sides in need of a big result, this could be a tense and intriguing match at Villa Park. This fixture kicks off at 8 p.m. on Monday, and it will be shown live on Sky Sports.

Form and Team News 

Aston Villa were held to a 0-0 draw against ten-man Leeds last time out. The result extended Villa’s unbeaten run to three after a 1-1 home draw with Man City and a 1-0 home win over Southampton. Nottingham Forest are rock bottom of the Premier League table after their 4-0 defeat at Leicester on Monday. It was their fifth consecutive league defeat. Manager Steve Cooper was under fire following the result, but the Forest hierarchy has given the boos more time to turn the Reds’ season around. 

Looking at the team news, Villa’s defensive pair Callum Chambers and Matty Cash could return to action after a spell on the sidelines. However, the match comes too soon for Boubacar Kamara, Lucas Digne, Diego Carlos and Ludwig Augustinsson. Forest duo Omar Richards and Moussa Niakhate will be unavailable due to injury. 

Match Winner Betting Tips

On current form, Villa will likely keep their mini unbeaten run going against struggling Nottingham Forest. The Reds have lost five in a row and conceded 18 goals during this run. In addition, Cooper’s side has one point and just one goal from four Premier League away matches. Due to this, a Forest win is unlikely, and William Hill has the best odds at 12/5. But, there is better value on a draw at Villa Park. The Villans have drawn two of their last three matches in the Premier League. Also, Forest has held Villa to a draw in two of their last three trips to Aston Villa. Therefore, there could be good returns on a stalemate, with VBet offering 34/13. However, Villa has been hard to beat at home this season and has won two of their four home matches during this campaign. As a result, we are backing a home win and SpreadEx is providing good value at 5/4. 

Under 2.5 Goals Bets

Although Forest has the worst defensive record in the league this season, we are backing a low scorer at Villa Park. Generally, Villa keeps things tight at home, and Steven Gerrard’s side has seen under 2.5 goals in five of their last six at Villa Park. Also, the home side has failed to score more than one goal in their last three at home, while Forest hasn’t scored away in their last two. Therefore, there is decent value in VBet’s odds of 11/13 for under 2.5 goals total in the Villa vs Forest match. 

Anytime Goalscorer Betting Tips

With few goals expected at Villa Park, picking an anytime goalscorer could be challenging. The scorers for Villa and Forest have been spread out amongst the squads this season too. However, some players have looked more threatening than others, and there is decent value on picking Villa’s Emi Buendia to score at any time. Buendia is an ever-present started under Gerrard, and his sole Premier League goal this season came in the 2-1 home win over Everton. At 19/5, offered by Unibet, Buendia could be a good outside option. But, our goalscorer pick for this fixture is Forest’s, Brennan Johnson. The Welsh striker was the Reds’ most threatening player against Leicester last time out, and he is the joint top scorer with two goals this season. Bet365 has the best current odds for a Johnson anytime goal this weekend at 15/4.
