Betting Spy: Man United to put a hatful past Villa

The last couple of weeks have seen Betting Spy back West Ham and Leicester in win doubles.

The Villa European Cup heroes of 82 could probably give the current team a decent game today

But the fixtures list has pitched both teams together so it’s time to look elsewhere for this weekend’s punt.

It was a fairly miserable trudge back to Upton Park station on Wednesday night after Man Utd had dumped us out of the cup.

Watching West Ham make Marouane Fellaini look like Patrick Vieira certainly wasn’t in the script as the Irons’ bubble was well and truly burst.

But we’ll learn and you can’t play a right winger at right back and always get away with it and surrendering the centre of midfield always leads to trouble.

The Hammers’ season could go either way now – disappointing slump or glorious push for a Champions League place.

It looks a toss of the coin job which makes the 3/1 on offer about West Ham beating Leicester on Sunday tempting.

But let’s look elsewhere and Man United’s home game against Aston Villa pits a team in a bit of form against a side in freefall.

Villa have gone downhill quicker than Franz Klammer and look there for the taking again this weekend.

This year they have shipped four against Man City and Chelsea and six against Liverpool.

Now Man United have hardly been the great entertainers this season.

But off the back of a decent cup win even they might break loose a bit and put a few past Villa.

Paddy Power is offering  9/2 that United win by four or more goals which looks worth a go with Villa unlikely to trouble David de Gea.
