Sheffield United vs Aston Villa Prediction, Betting Tips & 13/2 Bet Builder

Sheffield United predictions

Sheffield United vs Aston Villa bet builder tips, predictions and preview for the Premier League fixture on Saturday 3rd February from Bramall Lane.

Aston Villa find themselves in a strong position in the league, despite having not won a league game in 2024 so far. The Villains were defeated 3-1 at the hands of Newcastle during the week, as they saw their lengthy unbeaten run at home come to an end. Their only win this calendar year has come against Championship side Middlesborough in the cup, but I’m backing them to get back to winning ways in this one.

Despite scoring two goals in each of their last three in all competitions, Sheffield United are winless in their last three, with a 2-2 draw with West Ham, a 2-5 hammering to Brighton in the cup, and a 3-2 defeat to Crystal Palace last time out. Their last league win was back at the start of December, and I think their winless run will continue here.


Aston Villa vs Sheffield United Predictions

John McGinn is known for getting stuck in and committing fouls, so I’m backing him to pick up a card in this one. In his 22 league appearances so far this season, the Scotsman has been yellow carded on six occasions, making 30 fouls in the process, an average of almost 1.5 per game. I expect this one to be a physical encounter as Villa look to pick up the point on the road, and I think McGinn is good odds for a booking.

Ollie Watkins is having a fine season under Unai Emery and has bagged himself 10 goals in his 22 league appearances so far this season. As well as that, he has picked up eight assists, making this selection reliably informed by the stats. I’m backing Villa to win this one and think they will have a number of chances and, when they do, Watkins is always there or there about. I think this selection adds real value to this bet builder.
