Crystal Palace Favoured To Beat Sunderland at Home on Monday

Published on November 23rd, 2015 3:52 am EST
This week's Monday English Premier League tilt will see Crystal Palace play host to Sunderland.

Entering this contest, Crystal Palace sits in the middle of the table with a record of 6-1-5 (19 points), while Sunderland is sitting near the bottom of the table with a record of 1-3-8 (6 points). Sunderland desperately needs a victory in order to stave off the possibility of relegation, while Crystal Palace could move up to sixth place with a win, vaulting past the likes of Everton, Southampton and Liverpool.

Crystal Palace is 1-1-2 in their last four games, while Sunderland is 1-0-3 in their last four games. Sunderland has played very poorly in their last four games away from home, accumulating a "perfect" 0-0-4 record while allowing a shocking 12 goals against. Sunderland needs to get going very quickly or they will have a lost season on their hands.

Both teams have had trouble finding the net this year, as Crystal Palace has scored 14 goals while Sunderland has scored just 13. The difference between the two teams, however, is the fact that Sunderland has given up 26 goals while Crystal Palace has allowed just 12.


As you can probably figure out from the three paragraphs above this one, Crystal Palace will be the favourites to win on Monday, as evidenced by these odds:

Crystal Palace, 1.57
Draw, 4.00
Sunderland, 6.00

According to these odds, a successful wager on Crystal Palace would yield a total profit of $57, while a successful $100 bet on Sunderland would yield a total profit of $500.


As mentioned, this game is very important for both teams. The problem for Sunderland, however, is that they just don't seem to have a strong enough defence to prevent teams like Crystal Palace from winning.
