David Villa odds
David Villa has been a regular Serie A scorer for numerous seasons
David Villa has been one of the most consistent scorers in La Liga in recent seasons and he is almost certainly one of the safest options in any top goalscorer betting odds.
Villa has regularly featured towards the top of the scoring charts in La Liga in the last half-dozen seasons, firstly from his time at Valencia and most recently at Barcelona.
The Spanish striker’s ability to score all types of goals, whether it be headers from crosses, rebounds off goalkeepers or clinical finishes from the edge of the box, always ensure he is a leading goal threat.
Therefore, David Villa odds are always worthy of consideration, whether it be to be the top scorer across a whole La Liga season or whether to find the target in a particular match.
In his younger days Villa was widely employed as a central striker and was the chief goal-getter for both Real Zaragoza and Valencia.
However, since moving to Barcelona, Villa still plays in attack, but from the left-side of an attacking trio.
This means that his goal ratio has dropped slightly, but this positional switch could have improved David Villa betting odds for the better on an individual match basis.
With Lionel Messi proving such a scoring machine for Barcelona, he will always be the favourite in any scoring betting odds, whether it be first goalscorer or simply to score in 90 minutes.
Because of this, David Villa odds tend to be larger than what they perhaps should be and therefore are an attractive proposition.
This is particularly the case because the Barcelona front-three are interchangeable and they profit from the creativity of the likes of Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Cesc Fabregas.
