In addition to the Champions League games this midweek, there will also be a rescheduled EPL match. Roy Hodgson's current and former clubs Watford and Crystal Palace will clash in one of them. Will Roy beat his former team?Get Your Welcome Bonus!
Not only did Watford score for the first time under their new coach last weekend, but they also picked up their first win. Aston Villa was beaten at 1:0. However, the Hornets remained in the relegation zone in 18th place. They are four points clear of the survival zone. Under Hodgson, Watford has emphasised defensive play. They have scored no more than two goals per game in the last four games.
Crystal Palace played modern football with the help of Patrick Vieira. However, the results were not much affected. The Eagles are 13th and on a six-match winless streak. In other words, Palace has not won in 2022 in the EPL. Last weekend, the Eagles lost 0:1 at home to Chelsea. Before that, they drew with Brentford (0:0) and Norwich (1:1). A challenging period for the team from south London.
Expert Betting Tips
We think the game will be unproductive, as both teams have problems with attacking performance. Crystal Palace also has a six-game unbeaten streak. Therefore we recommend betting on combining the home team's double chance and total under 2.5 for 2.55 from 22Bet.
We also believe that no goals will be scored in both halves. Bet 365 gives odds of 1.50 for this betting option.
Finally, we believe the first goal will be scored late, starting from the 33rd minute. For this outcome, 1xBet gives odds of 2.41.
