Palace v Man Utd – Premier League Betting Guide: 5th March 2018

Monday 5th March 2018

Crystal Palace v Manchester United 20:00

We conclude week 29 in the Premier League with Crystal Palace, who are struggling at the foot of the table, welcoming Man Utd at Selhurst Park.

With Palace starting the weekend in 17th place (27 points) there is every chance by the time this match comes around they might actually be in the relegation zone (bottom three) with all the other teams near to them having already played.

The Eagles are around 3.25 to be relegated from the Premier League and with Chelsea, Huddersfield and Liverpool to face after this game then things don’t get any easier.

At the other end of the table Man Utd are going well in second before this week and although their rivals – City –  are running away with the title the Red Devils look sure to finish in the top four.

How does the Match Betting look?

Despite being at home, Palace can still be supported around 7.00 to win this game, with the draw 4.00 and United as short as 1.57.

However, based on both clubs current form it’s not hard to see why. If we add in that Palace have NEVER beaten Man Utd in the Premier League (17 games) then really the safe call is to side with Mourhino’s men here.

The teams played earlier this season and that also finished up in a comfortable 4-0 home win for United, while this repeat fixture last term ended Palace 1-2 Man Utd.

United also come into the match having not lost in the league to Palace in 20 games, while the Eagles have netted just 3 goals in their last 9 league games against United.

With just 1 draw in the last 8 clashes then United normally win too and really this might just be one of those games not to over complicate matters.

If you do want to delve into other markets then 3 of the last 4 head-to-heads went OVER 2.5 GOALS – this can be backed at 2.00, while both teams DIDN’T score in 4 of the last 6 head-to-heads – this is on offer at 1.75.

Lukaku is United’s main man in the league this season with 12 goals – he can be backed at 5.00 (1st) or 2.30 (anytime), while Palace’s Milivojevic leads the way for the Eagles with 7 league goals – he’s on offer at 21.00 (1st) or 8.50 (anytime), which looks fair value.

However, as mentioned – let’s just keep this simple and side for a United win.

BEST BET: Man Utd to win @ 1.57
