Crystal Palace host West Ham on Saturday afternoon with both sides looking to build on solid starts to the season.
Palace find themselves in ninth place in the Championship with 13 points from nine games, while West Ham are four points better off in fourth.
The home side are 13/5 to win the match, the draw is a 49/20 chance and West Ham can be backed at evens to triumph with bwin.com.
Both sides played during the week with very contrasting outcomes. Palace recorded an excellent victory away at high-flying Brighton while West Ham were beaten at home again, this time by Ipswich.
That victory for Palace ended a run of three straight defeats in the Championship and they will be keen to rekindle their early form that saw them win three and draw one of their opening four matches. They can be backed at 83/100 not to lose in the double chance market.
West Ham’s defeat against the Tractor Boys was their first in five Championship matches. They have been superb away from home thus far, winning three and drawing one of their opening four matches on the road, including 4-0 and 4-1 wins at Watford and Nottingham Forest respectively.
Sam Allardyce’s men have kept three clean sheets away from Upton Park already and are 31/20 with bwin to do the same again.
Palace, on the other hand, have failed to keep a clean sheet at home in their last three matches and West Ham must surely fancy their chances to get at their back line.
All signs appear to point to a Hammers victory then, despite the talent and vigour of Palace’s emerging crop of youngsters, and backing the visitors to win 2-0 at 31/4 is arguably the best choice in the scoreline markets.
West Ham’s defeat during the week has allowed their price to drift a little, making them a more inviting betting proposition.
I would suggest going with them to win to nil at 11/5. Punters who join bwin.com and win use their free £25 bet on this selection could see a return of £80.
