Aston Villa have provided plenty of entertainment on their return to the Premier League and they look good value for their second top-flight win on Saturday.

“After their stunning victory over Manchester City, the Canaries were brought back down to earth with defeats to Burnley and Crystal Palace, and their shaky defence is a clear problem.”

Bet 1: Back Aston Villa to beat Norwich at 9/5

Dean Smith's preferred style of football has won him praise in both of his previous jobs at Walsall and Brentford, and it is good to see an English manager being given the chance to implement his progressive ideas in the Premier League.

None of that will matter, of course, if his side can't amass enough points to secure their top-flight status, but they have a good opportunity on Saturday to add a second win to their 2-0 victory over Everton last month.

After their stunning victory over Manchester City, the Canaries were brought back down to earth with defeats to Burnley and Crystal Palace, and their shaky defence is a clear problem. Only Watford have conceded more in the league this season and an enterprising Villa side can edge what could be a thriller at Carrow Road.

Bet 2: Back Pakistan to beat Sri Lanka at 2/7

Both these teams can be said to be in transition, though for Pakistan's international side that is a permanent state, but Sarfaraz Ahmed's men should have the edge on Saturday in the first of three Twenty20 internationals.

Sri Lanka showed some improvement in Tuesday's second One Day International, but they still lost the series 2-0 and that cricket format is arguably their stronger suit.

Angelo Perera and Isuru Udana give the visitors a hint of experience but this is a desperately weak-looking Sri Lankan line-up and I can't see them surprising the world's top-ranked Twenty20 team on their home patch.

Bet 3: Back Dragons to beat Zebre at 13/10

The World Cup isn't the only rugby union show in town this weekend, and there's a full slate of games in the Guinness PRO14, including this clash in Parma.

Both teams kicked off their campaigns with tough assignments on the road, with the Dragons losing out in Munster, while Zebre lost 50-15 in Edinburgh.

Zebre arguably go into this campaign with more optimism, having made eight new signings, but World Cup duty has taken a toll on their squad. No fewer than ten Zebre players are away in Japan, while the Dragons are only missing four, which gives the Welsh side an ideal opportunity to pick up a rare away win this weekend.
