Tonight, Villa Park, 7.45pm

PREMIER LEAGUE strugglers Aston Villa and Bolton meet tonight in a match neither can afford to lose.

Defeat for Villa will leave them just three points above their opponents and dragged into a relegation struggle.

If Bolton lose all hope won't be gone with four matches remaining but moral will be badly affected.

A draw won't suit either but it's result they could settle for and it looks the most obvious outcome to me. Both drew at the weekend and another stalemate – which would Villa's fourth in five games – pays 5-2 at boylesports.

Villa are a biggest 21-20 at boylesports with Bolton 31-10 at BetVictor.

Three of Villa's last four have been under 2.5 goals another pays 10-11 at William Hill.

An early goal is difficult to see so consider 6-5 from William Hill for the opener to arrive after 31 minutes while no goals at all is 12-1 at Coral and Skybet.

    Unders is a really good price tonight considering.

      Badham, it has an unders feel about it as did Villa v Sunderland and Bolton v Swansea at the weekend. However, I recall tipping St Mirren v Dunfermline to be a low-scoring draw and I saw a 0-0 on the Bonkers Bet contest. That finished 4-4 so you can never be sure.

    I agree totally, but anyone that thinks just because it looks good its going to win is a donut. What’s your thoughts on Basingstoke winning tonight Paul? Was gona do them as a single but want a second opinion?

    • Mr Fixit 9 years ago

      Sorry, hadn’t looked as far down as Basingstoke.

      Martin, hard lines mate. Three goals in three minutes at Villa and none in the other 87. It’s a strange game and I never advised the double anyway. At the end of the day if you didn’t agree with the tip why do it?

    any tips on the Ballentines golf championship paul?

    • Mr Fixit 9 years ago

      Keith, haven’t been putting golf tips up here simply because simply don’t have the time to devote to it. They’re not strictly speaking tips but I’ve had a punt on Adam Scott in Korea and Bubba Watson for the Zurich Masters in the States. Scott’s a guy I back regularly and should be there or thereabouts. Watson makes his comeback after winning the US Masters. He won in a play-off last year and should go close if he’s not been partying too hard.

  6. keith richardson 9 years ago

    Yeah ive been advised to back scott. He is favourite to win the thing so gonna go for a few outsiders each way aswell. Cheers paul

    in case u havent seen it paul William hill have upped their odds of bayern qualifying on away goals from 11-1 to 16-1. Got to b worth a wee punt

    • Mr Fixit 9 years ago

      Keith, if you think it will be 2-1 to Real then back it. They’ve put value on the bet and after last night anything could happen.
