Bet Friday Soccer: Miller picks Aston Villa vs Leeds United in the EPL, and Rennes vs Angers in Ligue 1
Aston Villa, Rennes, both look to go top of their respective tables before a big weekend of action. Both matches start at 3 pm EDT.
What odds would you have gotten if you said Aston Villa () and Rennes (in France) would sit atop their tables on October 23?
That parlay would have paid a ton.
But here both teams are with a chance to win on Friday, before the rest of the league plays, and move to the top of their divisions.
Aston Villa gets a huge break, as Leeds United’s England international Kalvin Phillips will miss six weeks with a shoulder injury. He is a huge loss, but the Leeds system will go on without him.
I like both Rennes and Villa to win by slight margins
