What are my bets for the big game: Watford v Crystal Palace

March 14 2019

The FA Cup

The FA Cup

Crystal Palace take on Watford this Saturday in a game that could make or break their season; the FA Cup quarter-final tie at Vicarage Road, writes Rob Smith.

The Eagles have embarked on an uninspiring season so far, in which their home record has been bettered by every team in the league other than bottom-placed Huddersfield.

In Watford's case, Javi Gracia has overseen an excellent campaign which has seen the Hornets into their current league standing of eight place - having said that, they are safe, so the FA Cup tie against Palace is all they have to play for.

With not much between the two sides, coupled with the fact that it is an all-or-nothing game, there is plenty of money to be made from this fixture, provided you know where to look. We suggest checking out research of online casinos such as LeoVegas, Betway Casino and Vegas Luck, where you can place your bets. Whilst following the vital information below of course...

To be booked anytime

Daryl Janmaat has started the Hornets' last nine games across all competitions, so he should be in Gracia's team on Saturday. If he is given the nod, he is likely to come up against

Palace talisman Wilfried Zaha, a man renowned for his ability to beat a man and threaten the goal - if that last part doesn't materialise, he will most likely have been fouled.

As of now, the Ivorian is the most fouled player in the Premier League, so Janmaat is a safe bet to be carded anytime.

Both teams to score

Six of the pair's last eight meetings have seen both teams find the back of the net, so expect a lot of goals in this encounter as both teams battle to make something of their season.

Palace have lost Mamadou Sakho for what looks like the rest of the season, and looked flimsy at the back without the Frenchman.

Also, Watford changed three of their back four between their win against Leicester and their loss to Manchester City, so an unsettled backline could be taken advantage of by Zaha, Michy Batshuayi and Andros Townsend.

Luka Milivojevic to score anytime

Palace have been awarded a huge nine penalties in the league this season, a tally only bettered by Manchester United with 10.

As a result of that statistic, captain and set-piece taker Milivojevic finds himself as the Eagles' top scorer this season with nine goals to his name.

The Serbian has scored 15 penalties since the start of the last campaign, seven more than any other player, and could net once again at Vicarage Road with Zaha causing chaos down the wing.
