Crystal Palace vs Aston Villa Odds and Spreads


Aston Villa Steal a Point! Late Goals Stun Liverpool in Epic Comeback

On Monday, Aston Villa managed to win a very valuable point against Liverpool. With only six minutes left on the clock, Liverpool was up 3-1. Aston Villa ended up pulling a “Real Madrid” by scoring two late goals in a three-minute span. The hero’s name is Jhon Duran, who came off the bench to score a brace.

That point allowed the Villagers to keep a five-point advantage over Tottenham in the fourth-place race. However, the Spurs have played one game less, which means Aston Villa can’t afford to lose against Crystal Palace.

Ollie Watkins leads Aston Villa’s offense with 19 goals and 13 assists. There’s also Leon Bailey, who has scored 10 goals. And don’t forget about Duran.

The Villagers lost their last road game 1-0 to Brighton, but they managed to defeat powerhouses like Arsenal, Tottenham, and Chelsea. In other words, if you were looking for an underdog to include in your soccer picks, Aston Villa at +220 is the way to go.

Betting Favorite: Can Palace Upset Another Big Name This Week?

Crystal Palace hasn’t lost since early April. Since then, the Eagles are 5-1-0, defeating powerhouses like Liverpool and Manchester United.

Most recently, they beat Wolverhampton 3-1 with Michael Olise, Jean-Philippe Mateta, and Eberechi Eze as the scorers. Naouirou Ahamada was sent off in the 85th minute but the Eagles were already up 3-1. The streak came a bit too late because the Eagles won’t even finish in the top 10, but at least they managed to avoid relegation.

Jean-Philippe Mateta is the other reason for Crystal Palace to be the betting favorite at the sportsbook. He’s the team’s top scorer with 13 goals. He scored nine of those goals in the last 10 games.

Regardless of the result, the Eagles scored in their last 10 home games, conceding one goal or less in six of those matches.
