To Win (90mins)
Aston Villa 9/10 
Draw 5/2 
Crystal Palace 33/10

Villa let me down dearly at Stoke, but such is the inconsistency of this side at present, that they just aren’t worth betting on.

Hopefully a return to Villa Park will bring about a change in fortunes, but with five losses already on their home turf this season, I wouldn’t be too sure about it.

It will be former Stoke City manager Tony Pulis and his new club for them on Thursday, in what should be a closely fought match.

Pulis has injected some impetus into their fight for survival, although a loss to Newcastle over the weekend has set them back a bit.

Betting Prediction: DRAW 5/2
With so little to choose between these two, it wouldn’t surprise me if this ended in a score-draw.
