Wolves vs. Crystal Palace Betting Tips: Back Eze to hit the target at odds-against
All 10 Premier League matches are live on BT Sport this week and starting off the slate at 7:30pm on Tuesday is Wolves vs Crystal Palace. Anthony Eadson is on hand with his best bets for the game including a main selection at odds-against which has landed in five of this player's most recent matches.
Wolves suffered a 2-1 defeat away at Leicester on Saturday afternoon, which leaves Julen Lopetegui’s side six points above the drop zone in 14th. Wolves have performed considerably better on home soil this season with seven of their nine top-flight victories coming in front of their own fans.
A win on Tuesday evening for Crystal Palace would see them leapfrog Chelsea in the table into 11th. Since Roy Hodgson returned to the helm at Selhurst Park, his team have played four matches and have avoided defeat in all of those: W3 D1 L0. Palace have 37 points on the board which should be enough to see them remain in the division for another season.
Wolves vs Crystal Palace Tips
One player who has been instrumental in Palace pulling away from the relegation zone in the last few weeks is Eberechi Eze, who we are backing to have Over 0.5 shots on target at Molineux.
Unibet and BetUK have Eze chalked up at 11/8 to register Over 0.5 shots on target against Wolves on Tuesday, while other betting sites such as BetVictor and SkyBet go considerably shorter at 7/10.
In his last three matches, the 24-year-old has three goals, with five of his seven coming in away fixtures this season. When it comes to shots on target, Eze has recorded at least one in all of his last five appearances with figures of 1,5,1,3,1. Palace have surprisingly shown plenty of attacking intent under Roy Hodgson and odds-against feels generous here.
I’ve also had a little tickle on two players to be carded with a positive factor here being referee Rob Jones takes the whistle. Of all the top-flight officials to take control of five or more matches this season, Jones ranks fourth for yellow cards per game shown with a healthy average of 4.00 per game.
The first of two players I’m siding with is Joao Gomes who arrived at Wolves at the end of January from Lyon. The Brazilian has made four appearances at home in the Premier League since making the switch to the Black Country, and has been shown a yellow in all four of those!
I’ll then be combining Joao Gomes with Crystal Palace defender Joachim Andersen. 71% of Andersen’s yellow cards have been in away fixtures this season, with him being cautioned in five of his 14 matches away from Selhurst Park. This same double pays just 9/1 with Paddy Power, so we’d recommend the 15/1 on show from BetVictor here.
