Crystal Palace and Sheffield United will meet at Selhurst Park on the 30th of January for a big clash at the bottom of the English Premier League. Palace are currently sitting in 15th spot with 21 points to their name, while Sheffield are sitting at the bottom of the table, having picked up a paltry 10 points all season. Palace will be looking for the win to take them closer to safety, while Sheffield are slowly being cut adrift from another season in England's first division. Read on to find out who I think will take the points in this relegation battle.

🏆 Crystal Palace vs Sheffield United: Who Will Win?

Crystal Palace have picked up just 5 points from their previous six league outings, which puts them in 17th place in the overall form table of the EPL. In this time, they have found the back of the net on 8 occasions, and have conceded a total of 13 times, with 5 of those goals coming in a disappointing showing against Arsenal on Saturday afternoon. Scoring goals has not been their forte this season as can be seen from the fact that they are averaging just over a goal per match.

Sheffield United fans have not had much to cheer about this season, but the point that they got against West Ham on Sunday will give them some renewed confidence heading into this big match. Although, they will probably be the first to admit that they were fortunate to walk away with a point as some big decisions went their way. They are struggling because of their poor defense, which has conceded 51 goals in 21 matches - this is an average of nearly 2.5 goals per match.

Both of these teams are not in any sort of form at the moment, so it is tricky to call the result of this match. I think that the most likely outcome is a stalemate, so this is what I am going to recommend that you put your money on. With regard to the result, I can see it finishing 1-1.

My Prediction: 🏆 Crystal Palace 1 Sheffield United 1 ⚽

💯 Crystal Palace vs Sheffield United Match Odds

Crystal Palace vs Sheffield United: Match Winner Odds

When you have a look at the match winner odds that are being offered for this Palace vs Sheffield United match, you will see that the home team are the overwhelming favourites to claim the three points that are on offer. With the way that the Eagles have been playing as of late, it is surprising to see the odds stacked heavily in their favour. I would have Palace as slight favourites as they are playing at home, but only very slightly. Below are the match winner odds:

Team
Crystal Palace1.561.561.621.631.68
Draw3.653.653.753.753.85
Sheffield United5.605.605.755.756.00

Crystal Palace vs Sheffield United: Both Teams To Score Odds

The bookmakers believe that both teams will not score in this match, and the reason for that becomes clear when you check out recent fixtures between the two clubs. In their previous 10 matches, both teams have found the back of the net on only one occasion. This was surprising to me, and in the table below you can find the Both Teams to Score odds that my five favourite bookies are offering:

Yes/No
Yes2.002.002.001.942.00
No1.691.691.731.701.76

Crystal Palace vs Sheffield United: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

The bookies do not think that this will be a game of football that is full of goals, and I do not really blame them in all honesty. These are not two teams that are known for their prowess in front of goal. In fact, I do not reckon that this will be one of those games that will attract much attention from the neutrals. In the previous 10 matches between these two sides, more than 3 goals have been scored on just one occasion. Below are the over/under 2.5 Goals odds.

Yes/No
Over 2.52.022.022.052.002.06
Under 2.51.681.681.751.721.78

✔️ Crystal Palace vs Sheffield United - Betting Tips

I have shown you the odds that the best sports betting sites are offering for markets that British punters like to bet on, so now I shall provide you with some of my best football betting tips for this Crystal Palace vs Sheffield United match.

  • Tip 1: Bet on a draw: These two teams are sitting 16th and 17th in the EPL form table, having picked up just five points from the previous 18 that has been available to them. They have scored 14 goals in total in these six matches, while they have conceded a total of 23. So, they are not lethal in front of goal, while both have a leaky defense. If you want to also bet on a draw, then BetUK Sports are offering odds of 3.85 at present.
  • Tip 2: Bet on under 2.5 goals: If you sit down to watch this match as a neutral, expecting a gluttony of goals, then I think you might end up a little bit disappointed. Only 1 of their previous 10 matches has seen more than 2.5 goals scored in the match. Both teams have been pretty profligate in front of goal this season, which is why I have no issue recommending an under 2.5 goals to be scored bet to those who enjoy betting on the total goals market. BetUK Sports are currently offering odds of 1.78 for this outcome.
  • Tip 3: Bet on the correct score to be 1-1: Some punters like to bet on the correct outcome of a match and, if you are one such bettor, then my predicted score for this match is 1-1. If you agree with this, then LeoVegas are currently offering odds of 7.00 for this to be the final score.
  • Tip 4: Bet on Jayden Bogle to be booked: Jayden Bogle has been one of the most booked played for Sheffield United this season, so he is a good bet for those of you who like to try and predict players that will end up in the referee's notebook. At the time of writing, BetUk Sports are offering odds of 3.35 for him to be cautioned.

1️⃣ Crystal Palace Updates

Crystal Palace are having a pretty turgid season, averaging just one point per match. As a result, Roy Hodgson's men are just 5 points above Luton Town, who are currently occupying the 18th spot. They are one of the lowest scorers in the league, so you do not have to be a genius to see why they are struggling in this campaign. They have picked up just 5 points from their last 6 matches, which is only better than Brentford and Newcastle, who have 3 points from 18.

Some teams have many absentees to contend with at the moment, while others have barely any. Hodgson, luckily for him, slots into the latter category. He has three players absent ahead of this clash with Sheffield United, and you can see them in the table below:

2️⃣Sheffield United Update

Sheffield United are sitting at the bottom of the English Premier League table, and I would be very surprised if they managed to finish higher come May. They have struggled all season, and it is hard to see where their next win is going to come from. In the 21 matches that they have played, they have conceded a total of 51 goals and have only been able to find the back of the net on 17 occasions. The Blades need some divine intervention to stay up - maybe they should ask Arsenal's forward for some help.
