<2.90> <3.15> <2.15>

I usually support teams that love to move the ball around and play fluid, attacking football. That will be, however, West Brom's demise. Villa might be slightly fatigued after their UEFA cup game against Litex Lovech, but I fancy their quick attacks to exploit the gaps left by West Brom when they move forward. Ashley Young and Carew are doubtful, but they are likely to be replaced by Milner and Harewood, who aren't too bad themselves. Agbonlahor's pace upfront will be immense in Villa's counter attacks, and I don't think Villa will have too much trouble seeing off West Brom.

Roland's prediction: $5 on Aston Villa @ 2.15 = $10.75

aston villa are a good team, no doubt, but seriously, they are no supermen, and they will be physically tired after two tough away trips to spurs and litex. west brom's brand of passing football, while foolhardy, will be ideal in this instance, as they will force the villans to keep chasing. the villans also break down their opponents with searing pace from the likes of young and agbonlahor, but they too will not be at their best physical state. however, i can't see west brom winning this one, as they have already won last weekend, and promoted teams just don't win that many games. a draw then. worth a shot.

Eddy's prediction: $5 on draw @ 3.15 = $15.75
