<1.95> <3.15> <3.35>

Hmm, tough one here. Odds for spurs are so low because of their sensational 1-1 draw with Chelsea, but we have to keep in mind that 1) they scored an amazingly lucky goal, and 2) it was a derby, duh, so it was already preordained by the footballing Gods. Spurs have had trouble scoring goals with the departure of Berbs and Keane. Pavlyuchenko has been brought in, but I doubt he'll be the immediate source of inspiration upfront for Spurs. Villa lost to Stoke and then drew with Liverpool.. you know what's coming next! Villa win! Lets just say that the Spurs have a very lightweight midfield with no capable defensive midfielder to stem Villa's attacks, which is REALLY deadly. Would you want Milner, Agbonlahor and Ashley Young running at you?

Roland's prediction: $5 on Aston Villa @ 3.35 = $16.75

spurs haven't won yet this season, so they'll surely win today? well i'd like to go with that, but villa are a quality team. as such i'll go for the slightly safer option of spurs scoring first. aston villa might be good, but spurs are definitely a class above them in the midfield region. corluka's arrival is also gonna strengthen spurs in their bid to keep a clean sheet here. i expect modric to have a breakthrough performance here.

Eddy's prediction: $5 on spurs to score 1st @ 1.75 = $8.75
