Crystal Palace: 2.10 Draw: 3.25 Stoke: 3.60 See the Latest Odds
Crystal Palace will be playing Stoke City in the FA Cup this weekend and for both teams this is an incredible important match since Cup success is a defining factor of the seasons of both sides. Stoke will want to win here since they failed to make the final of the Capital One Cup while Crystal Palace have said that this tournament is the most important competition for them this season and they believe that they can win it. Both teams will be prepared so I expect a cracking contest.
Palace have been in shocking form and they will hope that the thrill of the cup will get the players going. Along with that they will have the home crowd behind them so I think that this might be a chance for them to kick start their season again. This team has a lot of talent and they are great to watch so I think they can do it at home.
Stoke on the other hand will also look to get a win here but they will bit a little down since they lost on the weekend and they also lost at home against Crystal Palace earlier on in the season. Furthermore they are also coming off a heart breaking elimination from the Capital One Cup and all this will be playing on their mind. This game happened earlier this week so the player will also be a little tired going into this encounter. Overall I think that all of this will weigh up and it will end up costing them here.
As far as betting goes, I think that taking the outright result is the way to go. We are getting a very good price here so I will be taking this. This is a going to be a great game I hope it lives up to my expectation.
