Soccer expert Martin Green has locked in his EPL best bets for Aston Villa vs. Manchester City on Saturday, Sept. 3
Manchester City hope Erling Haaland remains on fire when they visit Villa Park on Saturday to face Aston Villa in a 2022-23 English Premier League match. The Norwegian striker has consecutive hat tricks, with the second coming Wednesday in a 6-0 rout of Nottingham Forest. Man City (4-1-0) signed the 22-year-old after they won the league title last season without a true striker, and he has delivered. The Cityzens are two points behind Arsenal in the Premier League table as the Gunners continued their perfect run with a 2-1 victory against Aston Villa on Wednesday. The Villans (1-0-4) are floundering under Liverpool and England legend Steven Gerrard, and the manager is in grave danger of being sacked if they can't turn it around.
Kickoff in Birmingham, England is set for 12:30 p.m ET. City are the -330 favorite (risk $330 to win $100) on the 90-minute money line in the latest Manchester City vs. Aston Villa odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Villa are the +900 underdogs, a regulation draw is priced at +440 and the over/under for total goals scored is 3.5.

Why you should back Manchester City
City have won seven straight league matchups with Villa and have not lost in any competition since 2013 (12-1-0). They lost just one match on the road last season (14-4-1), conceding 11 goals in the 19 games. The team lacked a clear focal point in attack last season, and the champs simply went out and got the best young player in the world. Haaland has been more than worth the price tag, scoring nine goals in the first five games. Haaland scored 62 league goals in three seasons with Borussia Dortmund, and now he has a far superior supporting cast.
