The Christmas weekend starts early this week with tonight’s clash between Crystal Palace and Brighton at Selhurst Park.

Palace might have unsettled Manchester City again at the weekend but the 2-2 draw made it six without a win for Roy Hodgson’s side who have slipped to 15th in the table.

Hodgson might count himself unlucky not to have picked up more points in that spell since three losing goals were conceded in the 83rd minute or later.

Brighton continue to baffle punters. Their 2-0 defeat at the Emirates was to be expected but their last 12 league fixtures read LDWLWDDDLDLW – a model of inconsistency.

On their day they’re capable of going toe-to-toe with anyone but can they really be relied on at 5/4? Well, their away record sees them with 3 wins, one draw and four defeats but three of those losses have come against top four sides – the other at Stamford Bridge. That would suggest they fare pretty well at teams in the lower reaches of the league.

On the goals front, Albion can’t keep a clean sheet. It’s now 21 league games since the last kept out the opposition. That would point us to BTTS this evening which is 3/4.

If you’re looking for a correct score bet then you could probably do worse that 1-1. The last four league meetings between the sides have finished on that scoreline which pays 6/1.

    Carded 4 out of 8 matches puzzling odds going off as short as 3s most places

    • kyle b 2 months ago

      Those were goals you found the stats for, actually been booked in 2 out of 8 matches hence the higher odds.

    • MrBigChug 2 months ago

      He scored 7 goals this season. And been booked 4 times. That’s according to forebet. If they are incorrect I will bare that in mind when checking in the future. Thanks for making me aware of this. They have cost me £100

    Afternoon gents,

    Not in good form at the minute but fancy goals could be great value in Holland later on…

    USV HERCULES VS. AJAX (5.45pm)

    (4/5, bet365) NAP ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    (13/8, bet365) NB ⭐️⭐️

    (14/1, bet365) LONGSHOT ⭐️

    Best of luck with all bets!

    • kyle b 2 months ago

      Saw the hosts as high as 55/1 just to win and they’ve performed a tactical masterclass. Can’t believe how much Ajax have fallen in recent times.

    • kyle b 2 months ago

      Don’t know how you got the NAP home but well done! was convinced it was going to finish 2-0 towards end. What an epic finish for the minnows, would love to know what tier of Dutch Football they are in 🤔

    • inplaybha 2 months ago

      What a mad game! The home team were huge odds. They were still 4-1 for a win at HT winning 1-0!

    I’ve noticed that the bookies have been offering boosted odds on the top ranked player getting one 180+ in each set, they must be raking it in, I don’t think it’s landed yet.

    • MrBigChug 2 months ago

      I’ve been backing the both players to each hit a 180 in each set and landed a 200/1 and 66/1 so far so worth some loose change on them when the odds are high.. Some matches are as low as 10/1

    • ChrisBax 2 months ago

      Indeed. The same also applies to the “win match, get most 180’s & highest check-out” boosted combi-bets.

      van Gerwen was something like 1.08 to win, so I thought it was likely he’d get most 180’s and the best check-out @ 2.1

      But nope. He only got 2 180’s whilst the under-dog got 3. So, bet down. Fortunately I was only using a tenner of free bets on that one.

      There’s a reason why bookies put out all the boosted prices – the probability of winning is usually far lower than you’d think😉

    • MrBigChug 2 months ago

      Yes Chris I tend to avoid bookies boosts usually because they are smoke and mirrors but also for the reasons you have given. I will be on the underdogs tonight interesting to see how they price up lok for 180s tonight

    Paraguay U23 🇵🇾
    Panama U23 🇵🇦
    U23 Internationals

    BTTS 4-5 NAP
    BTTS and over 2.5 goals 6-5 NB
    Both bet365.

    Poor price for a nap so putting a bit more on it to make it worthwhile !!

    They played here just 3 days ago and ended 2-1 to Paraguay.
    Paraguay seen BTTS overs in 3/5 games this year.
    Panama seen BTTS overs in 5/6 games this year and scored in all 6.
    Panama scored in 12/13 games since they formed a team at under 23 level in 2019

  13. maccathered 2 months ago

    Palace v Brighton
    Over 2.5 goals at 1/1
    Over 3.5 goals at 5/2

    Red card at 7/2
    Own goal at 7/1
    All B365

    Normally wouldn’t get involved with goals in this fixture but with the prices they are worth taking on. Goals are at a all time high in the league and with games coming thick and fast concentration might not be 100%.

    Sensible stakes as the good stuff is on at the weekend.
    Best of luck
