New Manchester City signing Edin Dzeko has had his thunder well and truly stolen this week thanks to Darren Bent’s £18 million move to Aston Villa.
Villa have lacked a proved goalscorer since God was a boy and Bent will get a chance to make an instant impact against City who are still favourites in the Premier League betting at 1/1 to get all three points.
Looking at City’s record at Villa Park over recent years, it’s easy to see why. Villa have won just one of their last nine home games against the Citizens and will have their work cut out to add to that total.
City have the second best away record in the league, while Villa have lost their last two home games against Sunderland and Spurs.
Backing City to come out on top at 1/1 looks like a hugely tempting bet – especially if you take advantage of a free bet worth £25 by clicking here.
Despite their reputation for being rather uninspiring to watch, City’s last three games have yielded 17 goals, so putting some cash on over 2.5 goals at a very generous 10/11 looks to be well worth backing.
Finally, man of the moment, Darren Bent, is currently 9/4 to score at any time during the game and that bet could definitely be worth considering.
Bent has scored six goals in his last ten games against the Citizens and with Stewart Downing and Ashley Young supplying the crosses, he looks good to add to that total.
A £25 stake on City to win 2-1would pay out £200. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
