Bet builder December 18: Aston Villa vs Burnley

Planet Sport tipster Pete Farries selects his Saturday afternoon Betfair bet builder from the 3pm game between Aston Villa and Burnley.

My first selection here is Aston Villa to win (8/11). Steven Gerrard is already working wonders at Aston Villa.

Seemingly, a lot of the improvement has come by moving players into more comfortable positions, it so far is working out for him very well. They were unlucky at Anfield last weekend too. They took a very good win last time out at Norwich, and I think they'll get the win here too.

The second selection is Under 2.5 goals (10/11). Steven Gerrard has made this side ruthless in his short spell so far.

STAT: Villa are yet to score more than two goals in a game under the former Liverpool man

They've often been tight, they've often been clever, and more often than not when winning they're just being ruthless. I'm not expecting a huge amount, or perhaps any, goals from Burnley here. Unders the play.

And the final selection is Ollie Watkins to score (6/4).

STAT: Watkins scored in Aston Villa's 3-2 loss at Turf Moor in January

With five goals in 17 games this season, Watkins is in solid goalscoring form, and he scored in Villa midweek win against Norwich as well. I can't see how it can be argued that he is good value.
