Fulham will be eyeing their fourth straight win over Aston Villa when the two teams clash this Monday evening.
Scott Parker’s men are still looking for their first league points having lost their opening two league games; first to Arsenal and then to fellow newly promoted side Leeds.
Villa, on the other hand, are in far better form and they will be coming into this fixture having won three straight games across all competitions. With this in mind, it’s probably no surprise to see the Villains as the 6/4 favourites in the betting – that’s despite playing away from home.
Fulham aren’t miles behind with PaddyPower pricing the Lilywhites at around the 9/5 mark. One reason behind this could be Fulham’s cup victories over Ipswich and Sheffield Wednesday plus, their spirited effort against Leeds last weekend.
The London outfit have beaten Villa in four of their last five head to head games however, with Dean Smith’s side in good form, the recommendation is to back the visitors.
Games between the two clubs tend to be close contests which is why our best bet is to back a 2-1 win for the visitors. This bet is currently priced at 9/1 with Betfair.
