Crystal Palace Vs Watford Best Bet

Crystal Palace to win with correct score of 1-0. Odds of 53/10 with 888Sport.


Crystal Palace Vs Watford Past Meetings

These two teams are evenly matched, making for an interesting game. In the most recent meeting, Watford held on to a 1-1 draw at home. Back in April 2016, Crystal Palace won 2-1 at home, but in February 2016 lost 2-1 at home.

The last time one team beat the other by more than a goal was back in early 2012 when Crystal Palace took home a 4-0 victory. Since then there has been nothing decisive to suggest that one team has the edge.


Crystal Palace Vs Watford Stats

Crystal Palace are currently 17th in the Premier League, with a total of 25 points. They are only one point clear of the relegation zone, and will be pushing hard for a much-needed win, which could help them to climb a few points clear.

Watford sit more comfortably mid-table with 31 points, and are 13th in the league. They are not completely clear of the stress of potential relegation, but their aim will be to move a couple of spots up with a win and make more of an impact this season.

In terms of form, Crystal Palace have won 7 League games, drawn 4 and lost 16. Watford have won 8, drawn 7 and lost 12.

Crystal Palace have won 25% of home games, drawn 15% and lost 60%. Watford show exactly the same percentages for their away game form. As you can see, there really isn’t much in it when it comes to the stats.


Crystal Palace Team News

There are no sidelines to report, and Crystal Palace will be able to play their preferred squad. They are likely to use a 4-5-1 formation, with top goal scorer Benteke up front, supported by a solid midfield.


Watford Team News

There are also no significant injuries to report for Watford, allowing them full tactical potential to try to prevent a Crystal Palace win, and perhaps take home a victory of their own. Watford are likely to play a tried-and-tested 4-3-3 formula, with top goal scorer Troy Deeney lining up in the middle to seek opportunities.


Reasons For Crystal Palace Vs Watford Betting Tips

As any football fan knows, it’s not all about the clashes between the top-level league teams. This is set to be a really tight match, with both sides fully capable of taking home the win.

Some betting sites give an almost even break-down of who will win, suggesting around 33% for home win, draw, and away win. That’s how even this game is!

But whilst both teams may show similarity in their statistics, past meetings, and capabilities, it is important to consider the game from psychological perspective. In many competitive games in which players are evenly matched, psychological aspects become the deciding factor. This is why many of the best poker books deal with the psychology of the game.

It is the same with football, and on this occasion Crystal Palace just might want it the most. They face relegation, and have more motivation to pull off a win. They know they are capable of taking home three points, and they will be pushing for it harder than ever. Crystal Palace also have the added benefit of having won their past couple of games.

Given that it has been a good few years before either team beat the other by more than one goal, we can expect this to be a pretty low-scoring and close game. Of course, anything can happen, but going off all the information we have we can say that a 1-0, 1-1, or 0-1 score is most likely.

Therefore, we would recommend Crystal Palace to win, with 1-0 result. Other similar bets are also worthwhile, and if you want an outlandish bet with odds that pay, choose a high scoring result like 4-0.
