Sports Betting. Crystal Palace vs Swansea [03.01.17] : The Eagles sore higher than the Swans

Premier League

Bet: Crystal Palace win

Under the direction of Alan Pardew Crystal Palace have demonstrated unsatisfying results, that’s why the sports betting experts expected his dismissal. With the new manager Sam Allardyce the Eagles got 1 point in two matches. They would have overcome struggling Watford, had Benteke scored a penalty on the Boxing day. However, they just got a 1-1 draw with the Hornets and then lost to Arsenal (0-2) as it was predicted by betting companies. So at this moment Palace sit on the 17th position of the Premier League table.

Swansea are another loser of the season. Contrary to all betting predictions the Welsh team sit on the bottom of the table with only 12 points after 19 games. Even a manager replacement hasn’t improved the situation. Neither Guidolin, nor Bradley could save the swans from falling down. So their last game against Bournemouth (0-3), played on the last day of 2016, was the 4th loss in a row. The betting experts assume this crisis is not likely to come to an end in the near future.

While choosing a bet you should take into account the fact that Swansea have the worst defense in the League with 44 goals conceded. At the same time their attacking line is quite weak with only 21 goals scored. Crystal Palace are also struggling, but their goal difference is better – 29-33. If we take a look at the head-to-head statistics we’ll see that the last 4 encounters between these clubs ended with 4 draws, 1 Palace win and 1 Swansea victory. This time the Eagles are considered to be a favorite on the betting markets.

So the bookmakers give preference to the host: Crystal Palace – 1,78, Draw – 3,65, Swansea – 4,85. A match with a struggling underdog is a good possibility to get 3 points, especially when playing at home. So you can bet on “Crystal Palace win” (1,78). Besides, there is a good option “Total Goals by Home Team over 1,5” (1,84). In addition, giving the fact that the last meeting of these teams ended with a frantic score 5-4, you can bet on “Total Goals over 2,5” (1,95).
