Blues favourites against a resurgent Villa: The Odds

Chelsea play host to Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge and everything suggests they are worthy odds on shots at 1.33 with bet365 and Betfred to secure all three points.
The Blues come into the game on after coming from 1-0 down to thrash Leeds 5-1 in the Capital One Cup in midweek, and the stats are certainly good as far as this encounter is concerned.
Rafael Benitez has suffered just one defeat in 12 meetings with Aston Villa as a manager in the top flight(W7 D4), and Villa have won just one of their last 10 Premier League games at the Bridge (L6 D3).
The Villans also suffered their biggest ever top flight defeat at the hands of the Blues when going down 7-1 in this fixture back in 2010.
Juan Mata has scored in four of his last five games in all comps for Chelsea, and that makes him of obvious appeal in the first goalscorer market at 6 with bet365 and Paddy Power.
The stats also reveal that the last six league meetings between the two sides have produced a whopping 26 goals.
That makes over 2.5 goals look a really solid bet at 1.53 with bet365 and Paddy Power, while over 3.5 also appeals at 2.38 with Boylesports.
I fancy Chelsea to register wide margin victory success, and like the look of 4-0 and 4-1 in the correct score markets.
The former is priced up at 15 by bet365, while the latter is a 17 chance with Betfred.
