Speculative bet, I admit, but odds on a straight Palace win is too low, only 1.72 at the time of writing. Palace win in midweek, their first win for ages, and brought a smile on the faces of Allardyce and his players. This game is a crucial 6-pointer and a must win for both teams.
I feel Palace got a bit more about them, and in their home games, they have been a bit hard done by. 2-1-8, 13-16 is not great though.
Sunderland are going down. The team is lacklustre, got not pattern, noe real skill, no nothing. Can not see them getting anything here either, unless they grab an early unlikely goals and sit back the rest of the game.
Gambling a bit on Palace taking the lead, likely from a set piece, and then countering Sunderland to shreds after that.
