Can Man City Gain Ground on the Table Leaders?

Published on January 15th, 2016 6:44 pm EST

Manchester City will be desperately trying to keep pace at the top of the English Premier League table when they do battle against Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon. The bookmakers believe that Man City, who will be playing in front of their home fans on Saturday, should win the match.

Here are the current betting odds as of this moment:

Man City, 1.40
Draw, 4.20
Crystal Palace, 9.00

According to these odds, Man City should win 4 out of every 10 times that these two teams play under these circumstances.

Man City is currently sitting in third place in the EPL standings, 3 points back of both Arsenal and Leicester City. Man City still has a good chance of winning the EPL title, though they need to shake off their recent struggles and start turning in some consecutive wins.

Crystal Palace, on the other hand, has surprised to the upside so far this season, posting a record of 9-4-8, which is good for a total of 31 points. Crystal Palace currently finds themselves in a tie for 8th place in the table with Liverpool - heading into the season, nobody likely would have forecast that Crystal Palace would be doing so well.

Man City needs to put together a number of wins or else they risk falling completely out of the English Premier League race. Crystal Palace, on the other hand, will have plenty to play for, as they continue to build on one of their strongest years in recent memory.
