Match Preview

Bottom of the Premier League and dumped unceremoniously out of the Carabao Cup in mid-week by Bristol City, it’s fair to say Crystal Palace aren’t having the best of times in 2017/18. Already on their second manager of the season coming into our Crystal Palace vs West Ham United preview, the Eagles have lost eight of their nine EPL fixtures to date, scoring a measly two goals along the way.

Only Stoke City have conceded more times since August than Roy Hodgson’s defence, a statistic that is worth noting in our free Crystal Palace vs West Ham United betting tips later on. West Ham United have had their own troubles of course, and a defeat against their London rivals this weekend could see them tumble into the relegation zone. However, the form book shows us that the Hammers have now lost just twice in eight games over two competitions.

The Irons were involved in an amazing contest at Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night, clawing their way back from two goals down to win 3-2 in the League Cup. A result like that is bound to provide a huge shot of confidence to Slaven Bilic’s squad. In their last league game, the Hammers were beaten 0-3 at home by newly promoted Brighton. That result has had an impact of sorts on today’s Premier League football odds and the bookmaker’s think that the Eagles have the edge this weekend.

Crystal Palace vs West Ham United Glory Prediction and Betting Advice

Most observers think the tie scrutinized in today’s Crystal Palace vs West Ham United bets could really go either way. But the Hammers really have had a surge in form, despite their harrowing loss to Brighton last week. Two defeats in eight is a great record for a side stuck near the drop zone. The Irons are also unbeaten in three matches on the road, a run that was crowned by their Wednesday night triumph at Spurs.

Bilic’s side are unbeaten in four games against the Eagles and won both matches against the South Londoners in 2016/17. WHU have actually won on their last three visits to Selhurst Park, winning 1-0, 3-1 and 3-1 again there in their last trio of campaigns. Sunbet's odds for the away win/draw no bet option are some of the best odds you’ll find for this fixture. The extra safety net provided by that option makes it a smart move for any punter.

The home team in our free selection of Crystal Palace vs West Ham United predictions are comfortably the lowest scorers in the Premier League so far. CPFC have registered just twice in their nine contests and both of those goals came in one game. That means they have failed to score in eight attempts out of nine – a staggering figure for any side, least of all a club playing in England’s top flight.

The Hammers have only scored once in their last three EPL away trips in matches against Newcastle, West Brom and Burnley. They have averaged less than a goal per game in the league all season. So Saturday really is a meeting between two relatively toothless teams. Hodgson still can’t call upon the services of centre-forward Christian Benteke, which massively lessens their goal threat. Everything points to the weekend’s face-off being a low scoring affair and you can back the latest of our English football betting tips using Bet-at-home’s sensational odds.
