Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace: Bournemouth hosts Crystal Palace this
Saturday at the Vitality Stadium on the Premier League.
While Bournemouth comes into this final stretch of the competition a little bit more relaxed, Palace desperately need points to make sure they avoid relegation.
With 37 points and occupying the 10th place, Bournemouth have a 9-points advantage over the relegation zone, which is a huge advantage at this stage when we are talking about avoiding relegation.
Crystal Palace, on the other hand, is in 17th place with 30 points, only 2 points ahead of the relegation zone, and if they lose here, they might go back to the competition’s relegation zone.
The team is coming off a loss against Liverpool at home, on a match where they were even in the lead. Playing away from home, they have 3 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses, with 12 goals scored and 25 goals conceded.

Crystal Palace’s problem is that, despite the improvement they’ve shown on this 2nd half of the Premier League season, they are once again dealing with inconsistency, and at a very dangerous stage. Losing to Liverpool, like it happened on the last round, isn’t the main problem.
Their biggest problem is only having 1 win on their last 9 matches played and the approximation to the relegation zone. At this final stage we take into consideration the momentum but also the overall impression the teams have left throughout the season.
Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace – Betting Tip and Prediction:
And on this aspect, I saw more from Bournemouth than I’ve saw from Palace, that despite one or another positive period, has been a less effective team.
In that sense, betting on them here, while protecting the draw, has value.
