What Trueform says for Aston Villa vs Brentford
Aston Villa and Brentford have both started the new Championship campaign strongly and look evenly matched on the evidence of our Trueform chart.
The Bees picked up a stand-out mark for their opening 5-1 rout of Rotherham but Villa are posting consistently good results, with each team on seven points from three games.
These sides have shared the spoils at this venue for the past couple of seasons and another draw at 23/10 is our first Aston Villa vs Brentford prediction.
A Look At Aston Villa’s Betting Odds
Villa put a summer of financial fears behind them to beat Hull and Wigan before drawing 1-1 with Ipswich at Portman Road on Saturday.
Both goals came in the first half, with Jonathan Kodjia putting the visitors ahead before Trevoh Chalobah replied.
Town then had Fulham loanee Tayo Edun dismissed before the interval but hung on for a point.
Villa manager Steve Bruce said he was frustrated his side could not get the victory their domination deserved.
He commented: “When you are up against 10 men, you have got to move the ball quicker into forward areas and we did not do it well enough.
“I still think we had more chances to win it and the goalkeeper made a great save from [Conor] Hourihane. Overall, we’ll take it, but it was a great opportunity against 10 men.”
A Look At Brentford’s Betting Odds
Brentford followed up their demolition of Rotherham and a fine draw at Stoke by beating Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 at Griffin Park.
Neal Maupay and Ollie Watkins, two of several promising youngsters in Dean Smith’s team, netted in a smooth success against the Owls.
Smith said: “We have young, hungry lads in this squad who have all had a season at this level and are all the better for it. They are all pushing each other on.
“They went to Stoke last week and were disappointed to come away with a point and that gives us belief.
“If I’m honest, this win could have been a lot more emphatic. We created a number of chances and, apart from a five-minute spell before half-time, we were always the aggressors.”
The Bees look well equipped to improve on last season’s ninth-place finish and 4/1 for the scores to be level at half-time and full-time completes our Aston Villa vs Brentford betting tips.
