Swansea v Crystal Palace: Good times to stop abruptly for Eagles
Neil Warnock’s Crystal Palace side may have recorded a famous win over Liverpool at Selhurst Park last time out, but a trip to Swansea’s Liberty Stadium is likely to bring the Eagles back down to earth with a thud.
Swansea are viewed as warm 3/4 favourites to bag the points, while a draw is 5/2 and the Palace win is the outsider at 19/5.
As you’ll see from our trio of proposed punts for the clash, it is the Swans we fancy to prevail:
Fifth-place entertains 15th in Wales and one of the overriding reasons Garry Monk’s men laud it over their visitors is their brilliant home form.
Only the top two in the Premier League have taken more points on their own patch than the 13 Swansea have accrued, where Arsenal’s scalp was added to the Liberty’s extensive collection last time.
Meanwhile, only the bottom two sides in the top flight have scraped together less points on the road than Palace, who’ve taken one of the last nine available.
No Premier League player has scored more times than Swansea’s Ivorian striker in 2014, thanks to his 17th of the year at the Etihad on his last appearance.
That goal was Bony’s fifth strike in his last half-a-dozen league outings, rendering the former Vitesse hitman a smashing bet to help make it five wins in seven at home for the Swans.
A big part of Palace’s woes away from Selhurst Park, is their inability to keep clean sheets, rather than scoring goals.
A very respectable nine have been scored over six previous road games, though 12 have been conceded at an average of exactly two per game.
Swansea have scored exactly twice in all of their previous three home league assignments too.
