Aston Villa vs West Ham (Sunday, 16:30)
Two sides in contrasting form square-off at Villa Park on Sunday afternoon as Aston Villa play host to high-flying West Ham.
Dean Smith's hosts are languishing in the lower echelons of the league table after three successive losses, while David Moyes' side are surveying the standings from the lofty heights of fourth place.
After toppling Tottenham and seeing off holders Man City in the League Cup, the Hammers will have their backers at a general 7/5, but I'm going to back each team to hit 3+ corners and each team to receive 10+ booking points at 5/6 with SkyBet.
These two teams tend to play forward-thinking football and their meeting on Sunday should deliver a decent degree of goalmouth action.
Villa are traditionally strong corner performers, with the West Midlands outfit averaging 5.44 flagkicks per-game this season, hitting the 3+ line in each of their nine top-flight outings this term so far.
In-form West Ham, on other hand, have been prominent corner performers thus far, with their 6.11 corner-kick per 90 minute average only topped by Premier league titans Liverpool, Man City and Man United.
With corners anticipated, I'll complete the recommended bet by backing each team to receive 10+ booking points in what promises to be a tasty televised tussle.
Referee Chris Kavanagh is a standard-frequency card issuer but the English whistler has awarded both teams at least one booking in each of his six outings across all competitions this term.
What's more, Aston Villa currently occupy third place in the disciplinary standings with their 2.44 yellow card per-game average, while West Ham have picked up at least one card in five of their last six league games.
It's also worth noting that the aforementioned combination has clicked in each of Aston Villa's last six Premier League assignments, so the same 5/6 (SkyBet) formula holds plenty of appeal at Villa Park on Sunday.
- Each team 3+ Corners
- Each team 10+ Booking Points
- 5/6 (SkyBet)
