Betting Tip: Aston Villa -2.00 @ 21/20 with bet365

Aston Villa’s season has really improved since Tim Sherwood took charge and supporters can look forward to an FA Cup final against Arsenal after a recent win against Liverpool at Wembley.

That result had been preceded by a 1-0 victory at White Hart Lane, with the Midlands side now heading to the Etihad Stadium in search of another big scalp.

Villa sit just four points above the drop zone having played a game more than Hull, Sunderland and Leicester so there will be no complacency in the ranks despite booking that unlikely FA Cup final spot.

Sherwood might consider this a good time to be heading to the Etihad considering that Manchester City haven’t been fluent in recent weeks, even if the majority of dud performances have been on the road.

Nevertheless, confidence is not particularly high among the ranks and the centre-back pairing of Eliaquim Mangala and Martin Demichelis might have their work cut out against the in-form Christian Benteke.

So we’re prepared to get with Aston Villa in some shape or form. Perhaps the best bet is to back them on the handicap market which means a victory, draw or defeat by a single goal will be enough to get this bet won.
