Luton Town vs Aston Villa

Following three consecutive league defeats, Luton Town will look to give fans some cheer when they take on Aston Villa on Matchday 27. The Hatters suffered a dip in form, with the team remaining in the relegation zone and they face yet another tough challenge against Villa. Both Albert Sambi Lokonga and Elijah Adebayo are major doubts and the duo will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.

The Villans, on the other hand, are eager to stay in the Champions League berth and given their fine performances in back-to-back wins over Fulham (2-1) and Nottingham Forest (4-2), away triumph should be considered. Pau Torres should be fit for Saturday’s encounter, while Ezri Konsa is a major doubt and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. It has to be noted that Aston Villa outplayed Luton Town 3-1 in their last meeting in the English top flight.

Outright Betting

Luton, who have won just one of their last seven matches across all competitions, are 3/1 outsiders while an all square affair can be backed at 16/5 Wjcasino.

Luton Town x Aston Villa

Aston Villa came out on top in the reverse fixture and they are odds-on 4/5 favourites to repeat the trick at Kenilworth Road.

Betting Angles

Aston Villa are difficult to trust at such short odds-on prices so I’ll instead opt for a player-based selection and back Ollie Watkins to score anytime at 6/5 on Ladbrokes.

Villa hitman Watkins has roared back into form in recent weeks, having netted five goals across his last five Premier League appearances.

Recent Meetings

  • The home court advantage has played a huge role in the history of this matchup. All but one of the previous eight H2H affairs between these rivals ended in home wins.
  • Most of these games were played in the early-1990s, though. Aston Villa celebrated a 3-1 victory in the reverse game this season, back in October last year in Birmingham.
  • We have seen three or more goals in four of the previous six head-to-head outings between these counterparts.

Luton vs Aston Villa Prediction

Luton Town have not been pulling up any trees of late. They have had a nightmare run in February, losing four and drawing one of five matches across competitions last month. The Hatters have shipped at least four goals on three separate occasions along the way. They are now up against an in-form Villa side.

The visitors have just put four goals past Nottingham Forest seven days ago. Unai Emery’s men will be super-motivated to claim the spoils in the battle for the top-four finish and a place in the UEFA Champions League next season. The away win is the only logical betting pick and you can back it at the 1.75 odds.

Luton Town’s defence has been all over the place lately. The hosts allowed ten goals in the previous two defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City. This will be the music to the ears of Ollie Watkins. Aston Villa’s forward took his league tally to 14 goals by opening the deadlock in the aforementioned victory over Nottingham Forest last weekend. We’ll back Ollie Watkins to score anytime at the 2.05 odds.
