December 6th: Wednesday’s Daily Double – 5/1 Special, Tips & Predictions

While the Premier League might steal centre stage on Wednesday night, there are a host of intriguing affairs from across all of Europe’s elite.

With a stacked winter schedule getting underway in midweek, we have taken a glance at some of the most interesting betting markets that are available.

19:30 Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth

While Crystal Palace might almost find themselves sat in Premier League limbo, Roy Hodgson’s side are enduring what has been an extended inconsistent spell this season. Although the Eagles might have snatched a 1-1 draw away at West Ham over the weekend, Wednesday’s hosts have claimed just a single victory from any of their previous seven straight Premier League appearances – a run that stems all the way back to September 30th.

Likewise, marking their return from November’s international break with a 2-1 loss at the hands of relegation scrappers Luton, the one-time England boss does find some mounting pressure on his shoulders in south London.

With their recent issues underlined by an action-packed 3-2 defeat against Everton last month, Crystal Palace have also gained a reputation for their continued struggles on home soil.

Aside from a 3-2 win against Wolves on September 3rd, Hodgson’s side have failed to win any of their other five showdowns at Selhurst Park.

On the flip side, while Bournemouth might have opened up the 2023/24 campaign in the midst of a major top-flight struggle, Wednesday’s guests have certainly claimed a welcomed boost on either side of November’s international break.

While Andoni Iraola’s side might have suffered last-gasp heartbreak over the weekend as they eventually had to settle for a 2-2 stalemate at home against Aston Villa, the Cherries have collected seven points from their previous three Premier League appearances.

Enjoying their brightest spell of the season, some in Bournemouth’s camp could be smelling the chance to spring an upset in south London here.

20:00 Marseille vs Lyon

While Marseille might still find themselves facing a major uphill battle in their bid to claim another top-four finish this season, Wednesday’s hosts have claimed a welcomed boost on either side of November’s international break. Skyrocketing their way up the Ligue 1 standings and with the mood in Gennaro Gattuso’s camp at a recent high, Les Phoceens should be smelling a golden opportunity here.

Booking their Europa League knockout stage ticket last week as they eventually secured a thrilling 4-3 win against Dutch icons Ajax, the one-time AC Milan boss has seen his squad lose just one of their previous seven appearances across all competitions.

With their extended purple patch stemming all the way back to October 21st, Marseille will also be excited by their continued success on home soil.

In fact, Gattuso’s side are yet to suffer a single Ligue 1 defeat at the Stade Velodrome since opening up the 2023/24 campaign.

Likewise, landing a 2-1 win when they last met Wednesday’s guests back on April 23rd, Marseille will be confident of cashing in on a Lyon squad who find themselves at the heart of a public nightmare.

Remarkably sat rock-bottom of the Ligue 1 standings and collecting just seven points from their first 13 top-flight appearances, Les Gones are suddenly tipped as a leading relegation contender.

Without a new permanent boss in their digit after parting ways with Fabio Grosso last week, Lyon should be bracing themselves for a stern examination at the Stade Velodrome.
