So, will Crystal Palace get relegated? It seemed almost impossible a few months ago but they are running so bad at the moment that it is a real possibility now. This fall in form has to be one of the worst I have seen and things are getting worse every week for the Eagles and Pardew will hope this run can end this week as they visitt Sunderland in what is going to be a great match-up at the Stadium of Light.

Sunderland are coming of a loss to West Ham but I thought that they fought hard in that game so they will take a bit of confidence out of that game. They will also be happy with the fact that their opponents are running very badly as far as form is concerned so there is a lot of hope in this game for them.

Crystal Palace on the other hand will be thinking where things went wrong and too be honest it is really hard to see where this happened. On the weekend, this side went down 3 goals to nothing within the first half and although they got two goals back, they will be very disappointed overall. That being said, they were good in the second half of their last away game so that will give them hope going into this game.

I think that Crystal Palace will turn around their form here and win away from home but honestly speaking I do not trust them anymore and as a result I am not going to bet on them at all. WIth the Eagles in such a bad run, it is hard to bet on them. On the other hand betting on Sunderland is also too hard to do since I just don’t see them getting a result against a team like Palace who have a lot of talent.  I think that the best bet here is to go on the goal line and bet on over 2.5 goals. Both defences are weak and I think this will be high scoring game so we should get there with this one. .

 

Pick:
Over 2.5 Goals
