Aston Villa vs Hull predictions and betting tips ahead of this Championship clash, kicking off at 5:30pm on Saturday, 5th August 2017. Can the newly relegated Tigers start the season with a win? Read on for our weekend football betting tips on this one.
After a busy summer, Aston Villa are now second favourites to win the Championship. Can they deliver on that promise with a victory over Hull on the opening day? The Tigers are in disarray, and we can see them struggling at Villa Park this weekend.
The Villains have been picked out as serious contenders for the title, and that’s not surprising given Steve Bruce’s experience at this level. They’ve added well in the summer, and they are coming up against a Hull side who had a mass exodus in the summer. They’ve lost most of their Premier League stars and their manager, making promotion seem unlikely for the Tigers.
Given Hull’s problems, Villa seem well priced at evens with Betfred for the first of our Aston Villa vs Hull predictions. We think that’s a price worth taking, and we’re also very tempted by Villa with a -1 handicap. That one is great value at 3/1 with William Hill, and we’re taking a punt on both in our Aston Villa vs Hull predictions in the Championship this weekend. After winning 12 of their 23 home matches last term – with five coming by two goals or more – this improved Villa side should be on course for a strong start to the season.

John Terry is set to make his full debut after joining Aston Villa in the summer.
Villa have won their last four matches at home to Hull
We see Villa comfortably winning their opening game of the season, and they should build on their good home form from last season. Having won to nil in 75% of their home victories, the Villains should be able to keep a clean sheet with John Terry now on board. We’re backing a 2-0 win in our final Aston Villa vs Hull betting tips, which is priced at 8/1 with Ladbrokes.
