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 10 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 10 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 10 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 10 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.
