Bolton vs Aston Villa – Focus betting on scorers

| 05.03.2011

It could come down to who is more prolific in front of goal between Daniel Sturridge and Ashley Young to decide who leaves the Reebok Stadium with maximum points as Aston Villa travel to Bolton.

Match Odds

Based on recent history, taking Aston Villa’s betting odds of 21/10 to beat Bolton may be worth considering as Gerard Houllier’s men are unbeaten in their last eight fixtures against the opposition.

Furthermore, Villa have shown improved form in the league of late by stringing together a three-match unbeaten run, which includes their biggest win of the season in their latest top-flight game when thumping Blackburn 4-1.

Meanwhile, Gerard Houllier has triumphed in half of his Premier League games against Bolton.

Bolton come into the game searching for a third successive home win, although they have not beaten Villa at the Reebok Stadium in the league since 2002.

It is 13/10 in the Premier League betting that Bolton beat Aston Villa, while the draw is 9/4.

Four of the last five meetings between the pair at the Reebok have ended all square.

To Score At Any Time

Sturridge has scored in all four league games since arriving at Bolton on loan from Chelsea and is 6/5 to score at any time.

Meanwhile, Kevin Davies is 13/8 to strike and he has scored more Premier League goals against Villa than any other club.

For Villa, Young has scored in each of his last five games with Bolton and can be backed at 9/4 to extend this run.

Darren Bent scored a hat-trick for Sunderland against Bolton last season and is 6/5 in the Premier League betting to find the target again at any point in the 90 minutes.

A £25 stake on the scorecast of Bolton vs Aston Villa finishing 1-1 and Young scoring first would return £825. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
