Aston Villa Betting
Aston Villa Manager: Unai Emery
Aston Villa Captain: John McGinn
Aston Villa Star Player: Moussa Diaby
Aston Villa Stadium: Villa Park
Founded in 1876, Aston Villa has developed a rich history in English football, having achieved first-division titles and several domestic cups. In the past, their success has also extended to the European stage with titles such as; European Cup, European Super Cup and the Intertoto Cup.
Aston Villa was a driving force in football, having appointed the first manager in the world and adopting a unique style of play that would be responsible for their early success.
Despite having such a great backstory, the club has faced difficulties in recent years, with relegation to the Championship and a long battle to regain their former position. As part of this transformation period, Aston Villa has engaged in the transfer market to bring a new look to a side that would be capable of competing in the Premier League and now in European football as well.
Aston Villa 2023/24 Betting
In the 2022/23 season, Aston Villa had a dreadful start of the season, finding themselves towards the bottom end of the Premier League table despite bringing in the likes of Boubacar Kamara, Diego Carlos and Philippe Coutinho. However, after the sacking of manager Steven Gerrard and the hiring of Unai Emery, Aston Villa had a change of form similar to Newcastle United in the previous season leading to Villa leapfrogging Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea who were in the top four when Emery took over Villa.
A truly fantastic achievement by everyone at the club to play in European football next season. With an experienced manager to impress, Aston Villa fans will be hoping for an injection of energy in the 2023/24 Premier League season for them to climb the table once again. Unai’s accolades in European competitions prove that he has a lot of value to add to get a talented squad to acquire the right results.
For the first domestic cup of the season, it won’t require a great deal for Aston Villa to improve on previous seasons. The Carabao Cup is not an easy competition, with the best teams in England all included. Their cup draw could be influential in determining their progression as they could be matched up against one of the top teams in a competition where they are likely to make rotations to be able to compete within Premier League matches too.
FA Cup success has been far out of reach for Aston Villa in the last six seasons. The club has exited the competition in the 3rd round every time, showing a lack of progression or desire to prioritise the cup. Having invested money in both their squad and management, it is a competition where they might be better equipped to go further.

Next Aston Villa Manager Betting Odds
Certain things in the world just go together and from the looks of Unai Emery's reign at Aston Villa, Emery and Villa could be a recipe for success. Emery had the chance to come to the Premier League a year earlier with Newcastle United but turned it down as he favored his Villarreal project at the time, saying there was a lack of clear vision on Newcastle's behalf. Fortunately, both Newcastle and Emery would go onto great things with Newcastle surpassing all expectations the following season and only Manchester City and Arsenal bettering Aston Villa since Emery's appointment. Due to this, it's almost inconceivable to think that Emery and Aston Villa will part ways in the upcoming seasons, Emery could stay at Aston Villa for a very long time, leaving the Next Aston Villa Manager betting market in the dark for a long time.
We believe it's highly unlikely that Unai Emery doesn't finish in 2023/24 campaign with Aston Villa. However, if you believe otherwise, you can check out our managers betting page and bet on Emery leaving Aston Villa soon.
Betting on Aston Villa in the Premier League
The Premier League is considered to be the hardest league in world football, with talent in squads that occupy every position on the table. Every season, there are clubs that might find themselves in a relegation battle, despite investing in their squad and bringing in players they believe to be transformative.
With Unai Emery, entering the backroom, Villa fans might feel more confident about improving on their previous seasons and pushing for European positions once again. Unai is a manager that has previous experience in the Premier League, and he’s not a stranger to top-tier games, having managed teams to European success.
For this coming season, you could consider outright betting options for Aston Villa to make the top half of the table, provided they can turn these latest adjustments into results on the pitch.
Betting on Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup
In this knockout tournament, Aston Villa has had scattered runs, sometimes bowing out in the early rounds and achieving a final in the 2019/20 season. Unfortunately, Aston Villa had fallen short at the final hurdle after a 2-1 defeat to Manchester City.
If Villa can build some momentum and confidence within the league, those performances under Unai Emery could carry over into the Carabao Cup, helping them to achieve later stages in the tournament.
If Aston Villa hadn't made the Europa Conference League last season, we would have backed them to have a fantastic cup run this year. However, their focus will be on replicating the success of West Ham - who won the Conference League last season.
Betting on Aston Villa in the FA Cup
Given their form in the FA Cup over the last six seasons, it would be tough to say that Aston Villa is going to have any real success in the 2023/24 season. Consistent exits in the 3rd round tell a lot about their intent to progress. However, under Unai Emery, we expect that to change but other domestic competitions, such as the Premier League and Europa Conference League will be the aim for Emery, who may play weakened sides in the third round in January no matter who they play. With that being said, you might prefer to look at in-play betting when browsing Aston Villa odds, allowing you to watch how they perform in the FA Cup before deciding on a bet.

Aston Villa only returned to the Premier League in the 2019/20 season, which was a tough year for the club as they only just managed to avoid the drop. Since then, the club has started to establish their position within the league, signing some marquee players and climbing the table.

Aston Villa Top Goalscorer Betting
Within their attacking and midfield positions, Aston Villa do possess some exciting talents who are all capable of hitting the back of the net.
In the 2021/22 season, Aston Villa player, Ollie Watkins, was named the top scorer, tallying 11 goals in all competitions. Regarding the league’s golden boot candidates, 11 goals do not take Ollie Watkins close, especially with rivals such as Erling Haaland arriving in England. However, if you’re betting in-play on individual matches, Ollie Watkins could be a likely candidate to grab a goal if they’re looking threatening as a team.
Aston Villa Top Assister Betting
During the previous season, assists were spread throughout the squad, with Douglas Luiz, Ollie Watkins and Jacob Ramsay all contributing. When we consider the creative midfielder names within the Aston Villa team, there is plenty of talent available to make goals happen.
For the 2022/23 season, players such as Jacob Ramsay, Emi Buendia, Philippe Coutinho and Ollie Watkins will all have their names in the hat.
Douglas Luiz registered the most assists in the 2021/22 season with a total of five, which wouldn’t really put him in contention with the top providers in the league. Having said that, Luiz does offer a threat from corner kick deliveries, which could see him create goals against sides that are defensively poor against set pieces.
Aston Villa Yellow Cards Betting
Midfield and central defensive positions are the most vulnerable to receiving yellow cards in this Aston Villa side. The previous season showed us that Tyrone Mings, John McGinn, Matty Cash and Douglas Luiz were among those to be disciplined the most.
Defensive-minded midfielders are always in danger of receiving yellow cards, needing to commit tactical fouls to break down plays and protect the back line. John McGinn and Douglas Luiz would both fall into this category as they both have an aggressive nature in their games, making them a potential selection when viewing the latest Aston Villa betting odds.
