Bournemouth 14/5 to beat Crystal Palace in Saturday’s Premier League showdown

Competition: Premier League

Market: Bournemouth to beat Crystal Palace

Odds: 14/5 @ Bet365

The Premier League is back for yet another gripping instalment of the world’s most competitive league. Last weekend saw no end of excitement and intrigue, and the next round of matches are likely to bring the same. With this in mind, two of the season’s strugglers in Crystal Palace and Bournemouth lock horns.

For Crystal Palace, things have been much better in recent weeks as they close in on moving out of the relegation zone for the first time this season. In their last four games they are unbeaten, winning once and drawing three times, which has allowed the side to climb up to 18th in the table with 10 points, just three shy of West Brom in 17th. The influence of Roy Hodgson has been massive on the side, and they are looking like a far better outfit with the former-England manager at the helm. Of course, things still need to change for the club, as they have only scored eight times, while they have conceded 25 goals this campaign, but things have been looking up recently.

For Bournemouth, this game constitutes another chance to put some real daylight between themselves and the relegation zone. After 15 games they have collected 15 points, while in their last five matches they have won twice, drawn twice, and lost once. A win over Palace would see them put eight points between themselves and Hodgson’s men, while a defeat will see them slip further down the table. With this in mind, we are backing Bournemouth with odds of 14/5 from Bet365.
