Welcome to our Aston Villa vs Tottenham Hotspur betting tips, prediction and odds analysis ahead of their Premier League clash at Villa Park on Sunday.
Aston Villa are eyeing a strong finish in the top half of the standings this season in what has been a good season for them so far. Tottenham are eyeing a top four finish and will be eyeing nothing less than victory from this game.
Head to Head Stats
The teams last met in a Premier League clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September and Spurs went on to win 3-1.
Tottenham have won their last three consecutive clashes against Aston Villa.
The last time that Villa beat Spurs was in a Premier League clash back in April 2015.
Latest Aston Villa results

Villa have won just one out of their last five Premier League matches (a 1-0 win over Leeds United).
Villa have lost two out of their last five Premier League games (against Sheffield United and Leicester City).
Latest Tottenham Hotspur results
Spurs enter the contest on the back of two consecutive defeats (a 3-0 mauling by Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League and a 2-1 defeat to Arsenal in the league).
Spurs have won three out of their last five league games (against Crystal Palace, Fulham and Burnley)
Spurs have lost two out of their last five league games (against West Ham and Arsenal).
Aston Villa have in all probability achieved their mandate of avoiding relegation this season. Spurs meanwhile will be aiming to get as many points as possible in order to push for a top four finish and end the season as high as possible. Spurs will be more hungry for a win and I expect them to prevail 2-0.
Anytime Goal Scorers
Aston Villa-Ollie Watkins. The 25-year-old has established himself as one of the top up and coming English strikers this season, having so far scored 10 Premier League goals this season. Gareth Southgate rewarded him for his strong form with a call-up to the England squad which will be active during the upcoming international break. Watkins will be fired up and will be fancying his chances of netting against Spurs.
Tottenham Hotspur- Harry Kane. Kane is one of the best attackers in the Premier League and capable of causing havoc against any defence. He will test the Villa defence and if they are napping, he will score. He will also have good memories of playing against Villa, having scored a brace against the Midlands club in September.
Our Odds And Tips In Detail
Tottenham will be the more fired up team to win and also enter the contest in better form, though they have lost their last two consecutive league games. After a strong first half of the season, Villa appear to have run out of steam now that they have probably achieved their aim for this season of avoiding the drop.
I expect a 2-0 win for Spurs and they will gain a fourth consecutive win over Villa in all competitions.
