Another busy Saturday of fixtures from the Premier League to look forward to with teams scrapping for points at the top and bottom as the pressure begins to rise. It’s an exciting time of year to be a football fan – weather permitting, of course – and it’s an even better time to be a football bettor.
A Closer Look
Here we focus on the first match of the afternoon as Brighton host Crystal Palace live on BT Sport from 12.30pm. Major bookmakers offer over 100 betting markets to customers which are available right up until kick-off. When the game begins, we see in-play betting take over. Let’s pick through the value that exists in this one.
Brighton is fighting against the drop and can be found stuck down at the wrong end of the table. The home team are within touching distance of the basement three and have shown followers little over the last few weeks to suggest better time are just around the corner. To have any chance of keeping their place in the top flight for another season The Seagulls must seriously improve their defence, having over 35 goals already. The home win is 21/20 favourite, best price when getting your money down at Ladbrokes.
Crystal Palace Lost its Wings
Opponents Crystal Palace don’t have too much more to aim at this season. They finished 2019 well enough and gave fans hope of a midtable finish but a dreadful run of form in the early round of 2020 has sucked them down towards the danger zone. They are another team who could be playing Championship football next season and would only have themselves to blame. The away win has been priced up at 3/1 by Betfred. The draw looks a shrewd bet at 23/10 with bet365.
