Crystal Palace vs FulhamEnglish Premier League, KO: 12:00 Feb 28, 2021, Selhurst Park
BOTH Crystal Palace and Fulham will be hoping to move closer to safety when the pair lock horns at Selhurst Park on Sunday afternoon.
That triumph propelled the Eagles up to 13th place in the standings, but more importantly it moved Palace 10 points clear of the bottom-three.
Sunday's visitors to Selhurst Park, Fulham, appear to be the only side housed in the relegation zone that have a realistic chance of beating the drop.
The Cottagers set the wheels in motion for an unexpected great escape with an excellent 2-0 win at Everton a fortnight ago before battling to 1-1 draw at Burnley.
Despite winning just three of their last 31 Premier League away matches Fulham are 6/5 favourites with Bet 365.
My recommended Bet Builder landed during Fulham's 1-0 win over Sheffield United last Saturday and I'm going to support a similar formula at Selhurst Park on Sunday.
If we combine over zero Fulham goals, over zero Fulham cards and over two Fulham corners we can get some 4/5 (Bet 365) and that looks like a nice way in.
Scott Parker will have earmarked this match as one to win and with a number of tricky fixtures to follow I suspect Fulham will set out to secure all three points on Sunday.
Indeed, Fulham have been toothless in attack this season, but I fancy them to breach a Palace backline that have kept just four clean sheets in 25 Premier League outings this season.
The Cottagers were mighty impressive during their well-deserved 2-0 win at Everton recently and another three points on Sunday would breathe fresh life into their survival bid.
Fulham are averaging 4.1 corners on their travels this term and given that time is running out in their pursuit of Premier League survival I'm happy to back the visitors to hit three or more corners at Selhurst Park.
I'll complete the Bet Builder with over zero Fulham cards – the Cottagers are averaging 1.84 cards per game this season – the third-highest tally in the division – and it's worth noting that Parker's posse have picked up at least one booking in 13 of their last 14 league matches.
I'll also have a play on a second Bet Builder and combine under five match goals and each team to receive at least one card, a separate 4/5 shot with Bet 365.
13 of Fulham's last 15 Premier League away matches have featured fewer than three match goals and with a closely-fought contest anticipated I'll also back both teams to collect at least one card.
