West Bromwich Albion v Crystal Palace Preview, Premiership, Saturday 27th February 2016

West Bromwich Albion head into this match on Saturday evening having had a tough time of it so far this season, but they are 8pts clear of the relegation places and with home advantage in this game, the hosts will be confident of getting at least something from this one.

Crystal Palace are also having a tough season, but like their hosts they are also 8pts clear of the relegation places and with a confident winning performance against high flying Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup last time out, the visitors will also head into this game looking to get at least something out of it.

West Bromwich Albion Team News:

The hosts will be without the services of James Morrison (hamstring) and Callum McManaman (ankle) as both players continue to receive treatment for respective injury related problems. Doubts remain over Craig Dawson, Jonny Evans and Gareth McAuley and all three players will under take a late fitness test to see if any of them can be involved.

Crystal Palace Team News:

The visitors also have some injury concerns and will be without the services of James McArthur (ankle), Jason Puncheon (hamstring) and Pape Souare (suspended). Bakary Sako is a doubt for this match and will under take a late fitness test to see if he can be involved.

56 of those Goals have been scored in the previous 21 matches played between the two clubs at the Hawthorns Stadium which generates us an average goals per game statistic of 2.67.

Both sets of statistics seem to suggest that this game should see at least a few Goals scored on Saturday evening and betting markets such as Both Teams to Score, Total Match Goals 2 or 3 and Over 2.5 Goals all look good betting options for this match.

West Bromwich Albion v Crystal Palace Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

West Brom suffered a bit of an embarrasing 3-1 defeat in the FA Cup against championship side Reading and that will certainly have had a negative effect on the players confidence for this game.

The hosts have only beaten Palace once in their last five meetings and for me they definitely look worth taking on at their current odds on offer as they do look very short indeed for a side that is not playing particularly well at the moment.

Palace have also not been playing that well either of late, but their victory against Spurs in the FA Cup was a great result for the club and the players confidence will obviously be high as they prepare for this game on Saturday afternoon and with almost a full squad available, the visitors do look to be the value play here at what are generous odds on offer.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this match is going to be for Crystal Palace to Win as with a good record against their hosts in recent seasons and the Palace players certainly being in much more confident mood, the visitors look well worth getting on here to win this match.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip will be Crystal Palace defender Scott Dann to open up the scoring for his side as he does have a great record this season scoring the 1st goals of the game for his club and the odds are extremely good value ineed.
