West Brom v Aston Villa 13/1 odds for 2-0 win
The quarter final stage of the English FA Cup is here with one of the biggest matches being a midlands derby between fellow Premier League teams West Bromwich Albion and Aston Villa at Villa Park on Saturday, March 7. Both clubs are struggling in the league this season and are trying to stay above the relegation zone, but a win here will propel the victor to Wembley for the semifinals. In addition, the winner will have a one in three chance of facing Bradford or Reading in the next round. Of course, they could also end up meeting Man United, Arsenal, Liverpool or Blackburn.
West Brom has eight points in their past five league outings and is in a better league position at the moment. They’ve played better since Tony Pulis came in as manager and now have 30 points on the season. Villa sits just one position ahead of the relegation zone in 18th with 25 points and manager Tim Sherwood may not take a risk with his top players in this game, especially since they play at Sunderland in their next league encounter.
Sherwood hopes to keep the momentum going after beating West Brom 2-1 at home in the league on Tuesday with a last-minute penalty kick by Christian Benteke. West Brom had four straight clean sheets until losing to Villa and will now have the opportunity to exact some quick revenge for that defeat. Bettors can head to sportsbook BetVictor to get 7/1 odds of either Villa or West Brom winning this match 1-0 with the odds of a 2-0 win for either side reaching 13/1.
