Crystal Palace vs Watford predictions and Premier League tips for this week’s fixture. Kick-off is 3pm on Saturday 12th January and our tipster has selected three recommended bets.
Both sides this season could be doing a lot better than they are if it wasn’t for their leaky defences. They’ve conceded a total of 57 goals between them this season. Watford, who are still putting on pressure for the final European places, could be even higher than 8th of they were to reduce the goals they are conceding – they’ve allowed 31, far higher than the clubs around them. As a result of this, the first of our Crystal Palace vs Watford predictions is for over 3.5 goals to be scored. This is priced at 11/4 with Betfred.
With plenty of goals set to be scored on Saturday afternoon, there are a lot of options for anytime goalscorers but our second Palace vs Watford predictions goes to Wilfred Zaha. Arguably Palace’s best player this season, Zaha has only scored three Premier League goals but has been in positions to score plenty more. His incredible talent and few goals this season mean he is well priced to score against a very weak Watford defence. Zaha to score at any time is at 5/2 with Ladbrokes.
Both sides come into this game in very similar runs of form. They have both only lost one of their last five and beat lower league opposition in the FA Cup last weekend. Although Watford are higher in the league, this is purely due to their strong opening to the season. This alongside Palace’s recent wins against Wolves and Manchester City show they are capable of picking up big wins and this is why we are going for a big win for them. We have gone with Crystal Palace to win 3-1 which is priced at 18/1 with Coral.
Crystal Palace to win – 6/5
Draw – 11/5
Watford – 12/5
Form and Stats
Watford’s recent form has been far from impressive in comparison to how they started the season and this is shown in the odds for this match and some money on Palace to win wouldn’t be the worst idea – especially with the game being played at Selhurst Park.
You can get both teams to score at 4/5 with SkyBet or Palace to win to nil at 11/4 with the same bookmaker. Elsewhere you can get Christian Benteke and Connor Wickham to both score at any time in separate bets at evens with Boylesports whilst they price Troy Deeney at 5/2.
