Everton are rated at 8/15 to beat Aston Villa today according to our friends at Sky Bet, with the Villans at 5/1 to emerge victorious, while it is 16/5 for the match to end in a draw. Kevin Mirallas is at 5/1 to score first and 8/1 to secure a brace, with Christian Benteke at 11/4 to net in the 90 minutes.
Malcolm Watts: A point for Villa will be a good result today as they progress up the table. Both teams are in form and there will be goals at both ends. Mind you would like to see a Villa win! With Benteke back in form, one never knows. It will be interesting to see how Holt plays as he is in the starting line-up for Agbonlahor.
