Tip Crystal Palace - Watford
Crystal Palace host Watford in the English Premier League and start the weekend in 14th place, six points above the relegation zone. They lack consistency but are doing enough at the moment to stay out of serious relegation trouble. Since mid-December they have had three league wins but lost the other two but need some points from this game as their next match is away to league leaders Liverpool. Home form has been inconsistent with only two league wins and they have failed to score in seven home league games this season with just five scored in ten games.
Watford are eighth in the table and could well make it into the Europa League this season if as last season, finishing in the top seven gets you there. They are in decent form at present with only one defeat in their last six league games scoring at least twice in four of those games. Trouble is they concede too many goals conceding at least twice in five of the last six. Away form was appalling for most of 2018 but it gradually improved and they have one loss in their last five league games. This time they face a side that struggles to score goals and are inconsistent at home, so it's worth having a bet on Watford to get the win.
