Crystal Palace and Watford meet in the Championship Play-off final at Wembley on Monday battling it out for the right to lock horns with the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool in the Premier League next season.
The final game of the English football season (boo!) could be one of the most exciting, with a place in the big-time and a £120million windfall awaiting the winners.
Gianfranco Zola’s side are the 5/4 favourites to win inside 90 minutes with bwin, who make Ian Holloway’s Eagles a 39/20 chance with the draw quoted at 12/5.
But before you have a bet, take a look at these five key stats you might have missed.
4: No team has won more games having been behind at half time than Crystal Palace, who have turned things around on four occasions this season. You might be tempted by Bwin’s offer of 33/1 for a Watford half time, Palace full time outcome.
6: Troy Deeney is the in-form striker going into the game, with the Watford forward having hit six goals in his last nine games. Deeney is 7/4 to score at anytime against the Eagles.
7: Crystal Palace have failed to score in seven of their last 11 fixtures. A Watford clean sheet is priced up at 11/5.
19: Only the champions Cardiff had a better record in the first half than Watford, who have been ahead at the break 19 times this year. You can back Gianfranco Zola’s men to be leading at the break at 17/10.
158: These two sides are the division’s top scorers and have hit 158 goals between them. With 85, Watford averaged almost two goals a game, with Palace second on the goalscoring list with 73. You can back over 2.5 goals at 83/100.
