Crystal Palace – West Ham betting tip, prediction & odds 21.04.2024

Premier League, Sunday, 21.04.2024

West Ham not only came close to overturning the deficit from the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final against Leverkusen on Thursday after a great first half, but also inflicted their first defeat of the season on the newly crowned German champions.

In the end, however, the Londoners had to settle for a 1-1 draw and were therefore eliminated from the European Cup. The Stratford club can now concentrate on the Premier League in the final spurt.

The Hammers are aiming to win a ticket to the European Cup for the fourth time in a row. On this path, WHUFC face the derby at Crystal Palace on Sunday. According to the betting odds, the visitors go into the match as slight underdogs.

In my Crystal Palace West Ham betting tip, I opt for the “Double chance 1X & Under 4.5 goals” bet with odds provider Oddset at odds of 1.55.

The Hammers are six places and six points ahead of their neighbors in the table. Despite this, the visitors go into the Crystal Palace West Ham prediction as slight underdogs.

This has to do with the Eagles’ home advantage and WHUFC’s form curve. The best bookmakers offer average odds of 2.17 for a home win.

On the other hand, the bookies reward a three-pointer by the visitors with average odds of 3.35. If you don’t want to take such a big risk with this pairing, we recommend a free bet

Crystal Palace FC is considered a “gray mouse” in England. Since their re-promotion in 2013, the club has never finished a season in the Premier League better than 10th place.

After the first half of the 2023/24 season, the Eagles were once again in danger of relegation. Oliver Glasner was appointed as the new head coach in mid-February.

The former Eintracht Frankfurt coach is initially tasked with keeping the Glaziers in the league and then leading them into the top half of the table in the near future.

Glasner got off to a good start in south London with a 3:0 home win against Burnley. However, the team then went five games in a row without a win, picking up just two points in that period.

This streak came to an end last weekend. Crystal Palace were the guests at Anfield Road and celebrated a 1:0 victory. Statistics such as possession (70%), shots on goal (21:8) and expected goals (2.81:1.98) had spoken in Liverpool’s favor.

Now the Eagles are hoping to make it two wins in a row for the first time this season. CPFC have won just five of their last 40 London derbies (14U, 21N). The last three were lost.

There have also been just four wins at Selhurst Park this season (4U, 7N). Only three teams have scored fewer than 16 points at home. The offense is also causing major problems.

37 goals are the fourth lowest in the English top flight

West Ham deservedly lost the first leg against Leverkusen 2-0. The Londoners’ defensive tactics only worked for a good 80 minutes. The 33:1 shots on goal for Bayer spoke a clear language.

However, United had already made up for a first-leg defeat against Freiburg in front of their own fans in the round of 16 of the UEFA Europa League. And the hosts got off to a good start this time too.

The Hammers once again had top scorer Bowen on board, attacked the Werkself with maximum intensity and bottled their opponents at times. The reward was the lead after 13 minutes.

However, coach Moyes’ men missed the second goal. The Londoners then ran out of steam in the second half and in the end it was only enough for a 1-1 draw.

Now the whole season is under scrutiny. The team has actually reached the EL quarter-finals and still has a chance of reaching international business again in eighth place in the Premier League.

Nevertheless, the coach’s job is on the line. West Ham have won just one of their last six league games (3U, 2N). They have also won just two of their last nine games in the European Cup (4U, 3N).

In the home table, 25 points from seven games (6S, 7U, 4N) is only enough for eleventh place. There have been seven wins on the opposition’s pitch, but also seven defeats (2U).

That is enough for the seventh-best away record

The derby between Crystal Palace and West Ham has only been played 48 times. The Hammers lead the statistics with 20 wins to 10 defeats. WHUFC are also ahead when they visit the Eagles (10S, 8U, 5N).

The Glaziers have won two of their last three Premier League encounters against their neighbors from the east of the capital. It had previously taken the Selhurst side 14 games to win that many (6U, 6N).

There was also a 1-1 draw in the first leg of the current season at the London Stadium. David Moyes’ men lost 4-3 on their most recent visit to the Eagles, and the Hammers have never lost two consecutive away games at CPFC.

The bet “both teams score” would have been successful in the last 13 duels between the two teams. If this series continues, NEObet will give you odds of 1.66.

Conclusion: West Ham must now step on the gas in the final spurt of the league season after being knocked out of the Europa League. But the task in the derby on Sunday will not be easy. With just four wins from their last 19 games, form is not exactly in the Hammers’ favor.

Both teams from London are level on 15 points in the second-round table ahead of the direct clash. Crystal Palace, on the other hand, are unbeaten in three matches against their city rivals.

Coach Oliver Glasner’s men will also be looking to add to their three-point haul against Liverpool. In the end, I think the hosts will get at least a point. Not too many goals are likely to be scored.

My Crystal Palace West Ham tip is therefore: Double chance 1X & Under 4.5 goals!
