Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth 9 December 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

A big game for Roy Hodgson and his Crystal Palace side as they host Bournemouth at home at Selhurst Park. This is a game where the Eagles must get all three points since any other result will start making it hard for them to climb out of the relegation zone.

At home, Bournemouth are a good side and they showed that last week at Southampton where they almost managed to get a win but ended up with a very well deserved point. Having said that, it is a much different story for Bournemouth on the road. This team seems down and the confidence and belief seems to not be there when the home fans are not there. This is something that this team needs to combat this weekend if they wish to get a result at Palace.

On the other hand, Crystal Palace are starting to turn into the side that we expected from them. Zaha, Benteke and Townsend are proving a dangerous trio with the likes of Cabaye making it a solid midfield. The pressure is on for the Eagles to get some points on the board and I think that they will do that this weekend by getting a win at home.

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a very good price to bet on the Eagles to outright so that is the bet which I am going to suggest as the best option to wager on. In addition to that, I am also a fan of the over 2.5 goals. Crystal Palace have a ton of goals in them and I think that they will show that this weekend especially since they are at home.

 

Pick:
Crystal Palace
