Thing don’t look great for Aston Villa at the moment, they haven’t scored in four games and they only have one win at home all season. However a closer look at their form gives them hope here. Home defeats to Tottenham and Everton won’t look like bad results at the end of the season. In truth they should have got something from the Everton game but they missed a penalty and found Tim Howard in fantastic form. Draws away at Hull and West Ham can’t go down as bad results as any points away from home in this league for Villa should be regarded as good ones.

Cardiff come into this on the back of a victory over Swansea, however that was a dire game with very few chances. Previous to that they were outplayed at Norwich. I still believe Villa will be pushing for a top 10 finish this season, and I actually think they’ll get it, whilst Cardiff will/are in a relegation battle.

I have Villa winning this type of match-up at least 50% of the time so anything over even money is a back for me.

Southampton would have kept another clean sheet last week if it hadn’t been for a freak goal by Stoke’s goalkeeper. Hull have had a great start to the season, but that’s been built on their defence. I simply don’t think they’ll score enough to maintain their current position in the league and I expect them to start dropping very soon. They don’t create enough chances, they’ve only had 28 shots on target this season, which is less than Palace. It’s hard to see them getting many chances to increase that against a Southampton side who have only conceded 29 shots on target against them all season.

All I can see in this match is a 1-0 or 2-0 win for Southampton, it makes more sense to back those two outcomes than the Southampton to win to nil option as Southampton haven’t managed more than two goals in a game all season. Dutching these two scorelines pays out at 3.37.
