Villa Park will be filled again and as Aston Villa continue their season from hell. This week they will see the Eagles visit from London is what could end up being a one sided affair. That being said, anything can happen in the Premier League and I will surely be watching this match since it has a lot of value in it.
The Eagles come into this match after losing to Chelsea at home, a game which shattered the hearts of many fans at Selhurst Park. That being said, this is still a good team and they will be boosted by the return of their superstar playmaker, Yohan Cabaye. This will the team a lot more control in the middle of the park and after a cup win away from home they will feel the 3 points in more than possible away from home here.
Aston Villa on the other hand will just want to get a point here. They may be at home but they have been far from winning all season and things are looking like they are not going to get better soon. This team looks destined to get relegated and they will know home games are their best chance to get points but honestly I think that Palace will be way to good here. Palace have some injuries in their squad which will give Villa some hope but still the Eagles are too good with Cabaye back and I see this match going only one way and that is a win for Crystal Palace.
As betting goes, I think taking the outright result is the best way to go since they have Crystal Palace as just a slight favorite. We are getting 6/4 on Palace which is a steal in my opinion so this is a great chance for a big bet since I think that they will win easily simply since Villa have been so poor. This Villa team has only 1 win and 5 draws all season and I don’t see them getting a point here so this should be a very safe bet.

Pick:
Crystal Palace to win
