Crystal Palace vs West BromEnglish Premier League, KO: 15:00 Mar 13, 2021, Selhurst Park
WEST BROM travel to a Crystal Palace side limping along to the end of the season knowing that realistically only a win will give them any kind of platform to get out of trouble.
In the form tables, these two sides are struggling – Palace have one win in six and the Baggies have one win in their last ten which is certainly relegation form.
WBA had three home games on the trot and managed a win, draw and loss, but draws are no good to them really being eight points behind safety and Brighton.
Palace are surely safe enough, although manager Roy Hodgson still reckons they need two more wins in their remaining ten games to be sure of retaining their top flight status.
It's unlikely to be a cracker though – West Brom have scored one goal in their last four games, which two have ended goalless and two of Palace's last three games finished 0-0.
How the bookies view it
Recent head to heads
Palace produced a stunning display at The Hawthorns in December with a 5-1 thrashing of West Brom, although the hosts did have Matheus Pereira sent off after 34 minutes. In fact, Palace have won four of the last five meetings between the sides and drew the other one.
Players to watch
Christian Benteke netted the Selhurst Park side's consolation against Spurs in teir last game and has scored twice in Palace's last four games. He's 9/4 with bet365 to score.
Goals are a major problem for Sam Allardyce's men and frankly, it would take a peap of faith to back anyone. But former Rangers star Kyle Bartley netted their last league goal and he's usually a threat. He's 11/1 with Gentingbet to score anytime.
Anything else catch the eye?
West Brom are struggling hugely to score as stated and they are the second lowest scorers in the league so the 6/4 with Palace to keep a clean sheet is a runner.
They've only won once away from the Black Country all season too and have the worst defence in the league by conceding 56 goals in 28 league games. In short, it's impossible to make any kind of case for an away win really unless Palace have chucked it for the season and even then you couldn't trust the visitors.
West Brom get more total combined corners than anyone else in the league away from home apart from doomed Sheffield United at an average of 7.38, so 13/10 with BoyleSports for over 10.5 is a fair number.
Palace should have enough in what is unlikely to be a thriller. The 3/1 from bet365 for a Palace win and under 2.5 goals is a nice price.
