SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Crystal Palace's Premier League clash with West Ham on New Year's Day.
Crystal Palace vs West Ham (Saturday, 17:30)
Crystal Palace welcome top-four hopefuls West Ham to Selhurst Park for a New Year's Day London derby in the Premier League.
I've already penned a separate match preview on this capital clash, but I've since identified a Bet Builder that makes appeal.
Dipping into William Hill's Build Your Odds feature, it's the 5/6 about over zero Crystal Palace goals, Crystal Palace with a + 1 start on the handicap and over one Crystal Palace corner that caught my eye.
The Eagles have shown huge improvement under the management of Patrick Viera, with the former Arsenal captain overhauling the team and instilling a more energetic, attack-minded style of play.
As such, Palace look a more threatening attacking unit this season, with the hosts striking at least once in all but one of their 10 top flight tussles at their South London headquarters this term so far.
What's more, Viera has made Selhurst Park a fortress, as Crystal Palace have lost only once in their previous 10 Premier League home games.
That is a record they shall be looking to continue this Saturday as they welcome West Ham, who's early-season exertions may be starting to catch up with them.
The Hammers had been going through a tough time before bagging a morale-boosting 4-1 win at Watford in midweek, getting their push for a top-four berth back on track in the process.
However, Saturday's trip across town to Selhurst Park is expected to be a harder challenge for David Moyes' men, who have won just two of their last eight away games and posted just one clean sheet across their last 11 contests in all competitions.
With all that in mind, coupled with the Irons' growing injury list, I'm more than happy to combine at least one Crystal Palace goal alongside a +1 start on the handicap for the home team.
To round off the Bet Builder and to squeeze some more juice out of the price, I'll also throw a minimum of two Crystal Palace corners into the equation.
The aforementioned combination has clicked in each of Crystal Palace's last nine Premier League home matches and that only adds to the appeal of supporting the same 5/6 (William Hill) formula on New Year's Day.
- Over 0.5 Crystal Palace Goals
