Crystal Palace vs. West Brom - Betting preview and odds

October 3, 2015 12:45pm - Selhurst Park

Premier League

This weekend´s Premier League action kicks off at Selhurst Park on Saturday as seventh-placed Crystal Palace take on lowly West Brom in the day’s early kick off.

Palace back to winning ways

The Eagles have had a decent start to the season having won four out of their first seven games. They are one of two teams - the other being second-placed Manchester City - who have yet to draw a Premier League match this season.

Last week, Alan Pardew´s men beat in-form Watford away from home to halt a run of two successive defeats. The game was not a great spectacle and was eventually settled by a 71st minute penalty from midfielder Yohan Cabaye. It was the first time that the newly-promoted Hornets had been defeated on home soil.

West Brom sunk at home

Last Monday’s game against Everton brought West Brom’s three-game unbeaten run to an end. The Baggies went 2-0 up before three second-half goals from the Toffees condemned them to a disappointing defeat.

Boss Tony Pulis last visited his old club back in April when he led Albion to a 2-0 victory thanks to goals from James Morrison and Craig Gardner. That win was only their second in the last 10 meeting between the two sides. Of the other eight encounters, Palace won four and four were draws.

Team news

The home side have several players on the verge of return from injury including Damien Delaney, Mile Jedinak, Joel Ward, Connor Wickham and Marouane Chamakh. The latter two could give Palace a welcome boost in the attacking third as the London side attempt to consolidate their position in the top eight of the Premier League table.

The team from West Bromwich are close to having a fully-fit squad to choose from with the only exception being goalkeeper Ben Foster who is out until next year.

Betting odds and tips

Pulis got the upper hand in this fixture last term but Palace look like a much tougher proposition this year. Pardew´s men will be the favourites to win this one and can be backed at 4/5 with several bookies including Betfred and Coral.

In the Correct Score market, the 17/2 available from Bet365 for a 2-1 home win offers some value.
