Crystal Palace have not had a win yet but for the fans at Selhurst Park, it is not all bad news as they looked good in both of their losses and the addition of Christian Benteke could solve their goal scoring problem. Along with that, Yohan Cabaye has been yet to be fit so once the French superstar is 100%, this team could run pretty well. This weekend, the Eagles play host to Bournemouth in a game that I am expecting them to win.
Crystal Palace are the side that have had a lot of expectations on them but unfortunately 2016 has not been the year that it could have been since their Premier League form has been horrible and a heartbreaking FA Cup final defeat has left the Eagles fans with nothing but what could have been. This game will be important for them since three losses in a row will line up this season for one that could end up in relegation so I am expecting a performance of top levels in front of a buzzing Selhurst Park crowd.
Bournemouth will find it tough since they are away from home and that will be a big disadvantage for a side like this one because the home fan is half of their team. In addition to that I am expecting Crystal Palace to win easily because with the new signings that have arrived at Selhurst Park, the Eagles are a much better side than their opponents.
All in all, I am expecting a win for Crystal Palace. We are not getting the best price on this bet though so I would avoid it. The best bet here is the under 2.5 goals since neither team has a lot of goals in them and both defenses have been pretty good so far this season.
