Reason For Crystal Palace vs Watford Predictions

  • No Premier League ground has seen fewer goals (24) than Selhurst Park this season.
  • 12 of Crystal Palace’s 14 Premier League home games this term have seen fewer than three goals.
  • Watford have failed to score in a league high 12 matches this season, including six away from home.
  • Crystal Palace have averaged 0.78 goals per home game this term.

Eagles resurgence underway as they push for top half finish

Crystal Palace’s resurgence continued last weekend with a typically tight 1-0 victory away to Brighton handing them back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time since the start of December.

Despite them recently enduring a seven match winless streak, The Eagles are now up to 12th in the table thanks to the incredible tightness of the mid-table section. This puts them only four points adrift of potential Europa League qualification, so Palace’s season is far from over.

Roy Hodgson will be pretty confident of getting something from this game too. The hosts have lost five home games in the Premier League this season, but four of those have come against teams in the top half of the table. Against bottom half sides, they have won five, drawn two and lost one of their home outings, conceding just four goals in the process.

Watford strive to build on massive Liverpool result

Watford pulled off one of the greatest upsets in Premier League history last weekend with an emphatic 3-0 win over the previously unbeaten Liverpool, lifting them out of the relegation zone and giving them a much needed boost in morale after a five match winless streak.

However, the Hornets still have a lot of work to do to remain in the top flight. They are only above 18th place Bournemouth on goal difference and have won just two league away days all season. Five of their last eight trips away have ended in defeat, and they have failed to score in 43% of their away games.

Goal drought continues at Selhurst Park

It’s Watford’s low scoring ways that could make the difference here. No Premier League ground has seen fewer goals than Selhurst Park this season, with an average of just 1.71 goals per game there. In fact, 12 of the 14 matches there have seen fewer than three goals.

Watford have seen three or more goals in five of their 14 trips away, but these largely came as a result of their defensive collapses. Considering Palace haven’t scored more than two goals in a home game this season, we aren’t expecting a heavy defeat for the visitors. As such, backing Under 2.5 Goals looks a very good value proposition.

We are expecting Palace to get the three points though. They have won 1-0 in their last two games and face a Watford side that have failed to score more times than any other Premier League side this season. With Palace averaging 0.78 goals per home game and only conceding four goals in their eight home games against bottom half sides, backing a 1-0 correct score prediction looks a good choice.
