With neither side looking defensively solid, our tipster feels that backing a high-scoring game could be the best way to profit from this Premier League clash
Crystal Palace host West Ham in Saturday's late Premier League game with the two sides enduring vastly contrasting fortunes prior to the international break.
Flying high on the back of a five-match unbeaten run in the top flight, the Eagles have picked up 11 points in that run and look an imposing attacking prospect. Paddy Power go 21/20 (2.05) about a home win. The draw is a 12/5 (3.40) chance.
The Hammers have struggled desperately this season. A withering injury crisis combined with a failure to establish the London Stadium as anything approaching the intimidating venue that Upton Park was previous means they sit inside the relegation zone.
The visitors are 11/4 (3.75) outsiders to pick up a much-needed victory. If that option doesn;t appeal, new Paddy Power customers have the chance to back 10/1 (11.0) on West Ham by signing up using the link provided.
While Palace have been firing on all cylinders up front, having netted 11 goals in their previous five matches, the fact that each of those games also saw the home side concede will be a concern.
Despite their injuries in attack, West Ham have still found the net regularly, only failing to score against Southampton in their seven Premier League games this term.
With that in mind it's unsurprising to see a quote of 4/6 (1.67) about both teams scoring in this one. While Over 2.5 goals is on offer at 8/11 (1.73) with Paddy Power. The prospect of a game between these two sides featuring three goals certainly looks an enticing one. The return of Scott Dann could solidify the hosts' leaky backline but goals could still be the best option in some capacity.
With that in mind, over 2.5 goals looks a solid pick at 8/11 (1.73) while the price of Dann to score could appeal to those looking for a bigger price.
The 29-year-old has netted seven times since the start of last season, more than any other Premier League defender and with West Ham's set piece concerns, the centre back could be set for another profitable outing. He's 11/2 (6.50) to score at any time.
