Crystal Palace Betting Preview
Crystal Palace sits in 12th place in the standings having picked up 27 points. Crystal Palace faced off against Arsenal in the last game and they were defeated 4-1. Jeffrey Schlupp scored in the 63rd minute, and it wasn’t enough as they were defeated. Crystal Palace had 37 percent of the possession and five shots on target. Crystal Palace is pretty healthy heading into this game and the only players that are out are Chris Richards and Nathan Ferguson. Goalkeeper Vicente Guaita and Sam Johnstone are still competing for that number one spot in goal, and it’s unclear who is going to get the start in this game.
Leicester City Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup is Leicester City who sits in 17th place in the standings having picked up 25 points. In the last game against Brentford, Leicester City played to a 1-1 draw. Harvey Barnes scored in the 52nd minute, for Leicester City, but they couldn’t find the second goal. Leicester City had 47 percent of the possession but only one shot on target. James Justin and Youri Tielemans are both dealing with longer-term injuries and neither is going to be able to go in this game. Jonny Evans was dealing with a muscle injury, but it looks like he’s going to be able to go in this game.
Shane’s Free Pick
Points are going to be very hard to come by in this game. Leicester City is going to have some major issues getting any type of pressure with their offense. I do expect their defense is going to struggle here, and that is going to be the difference here as this game is going to be lower scoring here. Back the under to cash here.
