When Black Friday comes….
After being dumped out of the League Cup by the battling bantams, Aston Villa travel to The New Den on Friday evening to play a Millwall side fancying themselves to add to Villa’s season of woe.
The new Den hasn’t exactly been a fortress this season with five defeats on home soil but they have claimed the scalps of two of the current top five in The Championship (Leicester and Middlesbrough) which seems to suggest they raise their game when a good team rolls into town. Now it’s debatable if you can class Villa as a good team but given the circumstances this week, it would be a foolish man to side against The Lions. Currently 6/4 with Stan James, they are well worth a bet and are set to make this a Black Friday for Lambert and Co.
As a side bet we will delve into the ‘method of first goal’ market with Bet Victor. Peter Odemwingie’s goal last weekend was the sixth goal they have given away from a corner in the Premier League and three of the four goals conceded against Bradford were from headers. This has been a constant theme for Villa in the last few years and Millwall will surely be looking to exploit their weakness at set plays. The 22/5 with Bet Victor for the first goal to be a header looks a fair bet.
