Tottenham v Aston Villa betting tips: Kane frustration grows
Preview and odds for Sunday’s Premier League clash
We look at the odds to explore potential Tottenham v Aston Villa betting tips as the hosts bid to get back on track after three successive defeats.
Tottenham come into this on the back of a 3-1 defeat by north London rivals Arsenal, while Aston Villa are in buoyant mood after a 1-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Sunday’s match, which takes place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, kicks off at 2pm.
Tottenham v Aston Villa match odds
Tottenham have lost their last three Premier League games by an aggregate score of 9-1. They last lost four in a row in the top flight in November 2004 when losing six in a row.
Having opened the season and going top of the table with three 1-0 victories, the wheels have come off. Arsenal, who were bottom of the table after three games, are now above their bitter rivals in the table, following their emphatic victory over the Lilywhites last weekend.
Tottenham’s poor form is mirrored by Harry Kane. England’s captain has not scored in any of his last five Premier League appearances, with the striker last having a longer drought in the competition in his first six games of the 2015-16 campaign. Tottenham are 23/20 to win, while Kane is 23/20 to score at any time.
The pessimism surrounding Jack Grealish’s move to Manchester City now appears to have dissipated as Aston Villa have flourished since his departure. They have won three of their six games and sit in eighth place following successive wins over Everton and Manchester United.
Villa are seeking a third consecutive Premier League victory for the first time since winning their first four games last season.
This fixture usually has a positive outcome, as only one of the last 18 meetings has ended in a draw. The draw is on offer at 5/2 in the Tottenham v Aston Villa betting tips.

Tottenham v Aston Villa head-to-head
Tottenham have won 10 of their last 12 league games against Villa, though the two defeats in that run have come in home games (1-0 in April 2015 and 2-1 in May 2021).
They have not lost back-to-back games against the Villans since September 2008 and the visitors last won consecutive away games against the London side in August 1995.
Spurs are 1/3 to win or draw the game on the Double Chance market in the Tottenham v Aston Villa betting tips.
Eight of the last 13 meetings in all competitions saw three or more goals scored and it is 17/20 that there will be over 2.5 total goals scored this time.
Both sides scored in just six of the last 16 meetings, so the odds of 11/10 that one or other side will fail to net are interesting.
Tottenham v Aston Villa key battles
Villa’s defence, while still wary of Kane, will also face the threat of Son Heung-min, who has scored six goals and provided four assists in his last 10 home games. Son is 6/4 to score at any time and given his penchant for popping up with the winning goal, his odds of 4/1 odds to score the last goal may be of interest.
Likewise, Tottenham will fear Danny Ings. The Villa striker has scored six goals in his last six appearances against Tottenham in all competitions, including four in the last three games. He is 6/4 to net at any time and 17/2 to score two or more.
