Tottenham are back on track for a Europa League place and can claim a fourth straight home win in the Premier League when entertaining Aston Villa.
The visitors have little at stake following a moderate run of results and are easy to oppose, although the return of Jack Grealish gives them a boost going forward.
We favour 9/5 for a home win and both teams to score as our first Tottenham vs Aston Villa prediction.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham followed up wins over Southampton and Sheffield United at this venue by easing past Wolves via a 2-0 scoreline.
Harry Kane and Pierre Hojbjerg did the damage for Spurs, who also hit the woodwork three times.
Hojbjerg said: “We really want to be there, we really want to be a part of it.
“We don’t only want to be a part of it, we want to win it as well – so, it will be fantastic to get into the Europa League and try and win it.
“We haven’t reached the ultimate target that we wanted to reach but now we have to be in the present.
“The present is to achieve and try and be part of the top six, top five and miraculously top four. Again, we will try and do our things and see what happens.”
Kane, meanwhile, is also still going all out for Golden Boot glory and has netted seven times from six personal encounters with Villa.
Looking at the Tottenham vs Aston Villa odds, we like 4/1 for the England star to bag at least a brace here.
Last Spurs line-up: Lloris, Reguilon, Alderweireld, Tanganga, Hojbjerg, Dier, Lo Celso, Alli, Son, Bale, Kane.
A Look At Aston Villa’s Betting Odds
Aston Villa have won over lots of new admirers this season but just seem to be running out of steam.
They led twice at Crystal Palace on Sunday but ultimately fell to a 3-2 defeat which made it four losses and just one win in seven outings.
John McGinn and Anwar El Ghazi netted at Selhurst Park but the former later admitted: “We’re all really disappointed.
“A lot of us have stuff to look forward to in the summer but we want to finish the season well.”
That last comment is noteworthy, though, with the Scotland midfielder one of several players expected take part in the Euros.
Tyrone Mings, Grealish and Ollie Watkins will also be hopeful of being involved in that tournament, which could just lead to a drop in intensity.
Let’s finish off our Tottenham vs Aston Villa betting tips by taking 10/1 for a 3-1 home victory.
Last Villa line-up: Martinez, Konsa, Targett, Elmohamady, Hause, Luiz, McGinn, Traore, El Ghazi, Ramsey, Watkins.
TOTTENHAM 2-0 Wolves – Harry Kane, Pierre Hojbjerg
Crystal Palace 3-2 ASTON VILLA – John McGinn, Anwar El Ghazi
Head-to-head: Aston Villa 0-2 Tottenham, Aston Villa 2-3 Tottenham, Tottenham 3-1 Aston Villa
