Aston Villa vs Tottenham Hotspur: Over 4.5 Goals

In Midweek Aston Villa face Tottenham Hotspur, where a win for the hosts would see them move ahead of Jose Mourinho’s side on goal difference, whilst a Spurs win would move them up to third place ahead of Leicester City.

Tottenham come into this game as firm favourites, as prior to Friday night’s game against Liverpool, Villa had 14 first team players missing and are set to do so until this coming Friday.

Mourinho rotated the majority of his side against Marine in the FA Cup on Sunday, as his side beat the Northern Premier League Division One North-West side 5-0. There could be a similar scoreline at Villa Park in midweek, as despite Louie Barry scoring a memorable equaliser for the Villains, Liverpool won the game 4-1 and had 83% possession and 29 shots to Villa’s two, indicating how hard the task in hand will be.

This game has the odds of 11/4 for there to be more than 4.5 goals.

Oldham Athletic vs Mansfield Town: Mansfield to Win Both Teams to Score

On Wednesday night there is just one clash in League Two, which sees Oldham Athletic take on in-form Mansfield Town at Boundary Park.

The Latics have only won two of their 11 home fixtures in the league this season, which has been detrimental to their hopes of pushing for the play-offs, as Harry Kewell’s side sit seven points off Morecambe who occupy seventh place. Oldham have the fourth-best attack in the division having scored 33 goals in 21 games, but have the second-worst defence, leaking 37.

Meanwhile, Nigel Clough’s Mansfield have won their last three league games, against Salford City, Port Vale and Scunthorpe United, scoring seven goals in the process, which means at present they have the second-best form in the league, only behind Morecambe.

The Stags are priced at 5/1 to win with both teams to score.

Livingston vs Aberdeen: Alan Forrest to Score First or Last 7/1

Fifth-placed Livingston take on third-placed Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership at the Tony Macaroni Arena, with the hosts being the second most in-form team in the division, with only runaway leaders Rangers being better off.

Livingston have won their last eight matches in all competitions under Dave Martindale, whilst visitors Aberdeen come into this game having won two out of their last five matches, most recently against St Johnstone on Boxing Day.

The Lion’s top scorer so far this season is Alan Forrest, the younger brother of James who plays for Celtic, and has 11 goals in 25 matches so far this season. In Livi’s most recent win against Ross County, the 24-year-old made an assist for Scott Pittman and settled the result with a goal of his own in the 91st minute to win the game 3-1.

Forrest is priced at 7/1 to score first or last like he did on Sunday against County.
