Crystal Palace 4/6 to beat Cardiff in Boxing Day’s Premier League clash
Competition: Premier League
Market: Crystal Palace win
Odds: 4/6 @ Bet 365
Looking to build off of last weekend’s dramatic 3-2 win away at Manchester City, Crystal Palace will welcome Cardiff to Selhurst Park on Boxing Day afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while it might have been a start to the season riddled with inconsistencies, Crystal Palace appear to have found an impressive run of form and will be planning a push up the Premier League table. In their 18 games this season, the Eagles have recorded five wins, three draws and 10 defeats, scoring 17 and conceding 25 in return. While they might be sat seven points adrift of the top half of the table, Palace have shown some recent signs of life. Along with picking up three points away at the Etihad, Wednesday’s visitors have now won their last two on the bounce and have also claimed back to back victories at Selhurst Park.
As for the visitors, while their form at the Cardiff City Stadium is keeping the Bluebirds outside of the relegation zone, they have drastically struggled with their performances on the road. In their 18 Premier League games this season, Cardiff have recorded four wins, two draws and 12 defeats, scoring 18 and conceding 38 in return. Currently, they hold the second worst defensive record in the top flight. Managing to pick up just one point on their travels this season, the visitors have also lost three of their last five league fixtures, conceding 11 goals on that run.
