Crystal Palace v West Brom Premier League Preview, 13th May 3.00pm
The Baggies won’t get to fight for their Premier League survival on the final day of the season after all. They were relegated in midweek when Southampton beat Swansea in a big relegation scrap. The Eagles will go into the game free and clear of any relegation concerns and in good form as well.
Crystal Palace v West Brom Betting Odds*
Crystal Palace 4/5, Draw 13/5, West Brom 10/3* (Betting Odds taken at 10:55 p.m. on May 9th, 2018)
Crystal Palace News and Form
The Eagles have gone five matches unbeaten, winning three of those. They have shown great commitment and quality down the back stretch and find themselves up in the middle of the table. So they get a chance to relax and enjoy themselves in this one and each of their last four at Selhurst Park have produced at least three goals so it’s worth a look at over 2.5 goals with William Hill for 17/20 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:10 a.m.). The Eagles have won their last two home games scoring eight goals in the process with a 3-2 win over Brighton and a 5-0 over Leicester. They have found the back of the net in each of their last five home games and as they really can’t be trusted all that much for clean sheets, both teams to score may be worth a flutter in this one. They have not taken a clean sheet in any home game against a side currently down in the bottom half of the table this season. They have taken a clean sheet in just 17% of their home games. After their slow start the season the Eagles have now averaged 1.5 goals per game on home soil and pretty much Wilfried Zaha has been at the centre of everything good that the Eagles have done during their run-in.
West Brom News and Form
West Brom’s brief flirtation with survival has come to an end. Despite fighting back to go W3 D2 in their last five games, Southampton’s victory at Swansea in midweek relegated the Baggies. West Brom have lost all of their away games this season against sides currently sitting twelfth and lower. The Eagles are 11th. West Brom have won just three times on their travels this season and two of those have been in their last two games, both 1-0 successes at Manchester United and then Newcastle. In the William Hill correct score market the shortest priced option is a 1-1 draw at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:10 a.m.) while another 1-0 for West Brom would bring 12/1 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:10 a.m.). Their overall away record for the season is just W3 D4 L11 and they have tallied only the ten goals. But they have scored in each of their last eight league games now home and away and so there has been a lot of improvement just a little too late. They have been 0-0 at half time in sixteen of their matches this season so you may want to consider that as a betting option too.
Crystal Palace v West Brom Head to Head
There was a 0-0 draw between these two back at the start of December and that leaves the Eagles undefeated in their last two against West Brom. In the last five Premier League meetings things are even though with two wins each and a draw. West Brom did win this corresponding fixture last season 1-0. Four of the last five meetings have ended under 2.5 goals and both teams have scored in just one of those.
Who will win – Crystal Palace v West Brom Predictions
The Eagles are flying at the moment and should be able to close out the season with a win. They have a good positive attitude about them and even though the Baggies have fought so well at the end, the outcome is deflating for them. Home win.
