After quite an eventful week that comprised on cup competitions in England, The Premier League is finally back and for many teams the pressure is starting to build as we approach the end of what has been a very eventful season. With that in mind, I am expecting the game this weekend to also be a good one as Crystal Palace travel to Dean Court where they are taking on a Bournemouth side that are great at home.

Bournemouth have had a pretty good season so far and it is safe to say at the moment that they are not in a relegation battle but they will know that they are not safe yet since it is the Premier League and things can change really quickly. That being said, this is a pretty good side and their home crowd does wonders for them so I am expecting them to put up a good performance.

The Eagles on the other hand are definitely in a relegation battle. This side has had a lot of problems at the back and I think as it is as the moment, they will struggle against most teams simply since they are conceding so many goals. That being said, they have a great forward line and with the return on Wilfred Zaha to side will give them a massive boost. I think we can expect Palace to score a ton of goals in this game.

With all that summary, I am going to stick my neck out and say Palace are going to win. The Eagles are in more trouble and I simply feel as if they are more desperate and at this point of the season that ends up counting for a lot. We are getting a pretty good price on this bet and I think it is value so a medium sized stake is what I would recommend.  

 

Pick:
Crystal Palace
