Bournemouth v Crystal Palace
The Cherries come into this match well rested, having been knocked out of the FA Cup in the third round.
Eddie Howe will have had ten days to prepare for this Tuesday evening match, as he looks to turn around Bournemouth's recent poor form. They have now gone four games without a win, with that run starting with the dramatic match against Arsenal in which Bournemouth surrendered a three goal lead.
Most recently they drew at home with struggling Watford, twice fighting back to claim a 2-2 draw. Though probably safe from relegation - Bournemouth are ten points clear of the drop zone - Howe will no doubt be concerned by their inconsistency. Bournemouth are yet to win consecutive games this season.
The young manager could welcome Max Gradel back to the side after the Ivory Coast were eliminated from the Africa Cup of Nations. Marc Wilson is still out with a hamstring injury.
Bournemouth's problems are pretty insignificant when compared to those of Crystal Palace.
The Eagles were knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester City at the weekend, which at least means that they can now concentrate on their fight against relegation. Sam Allardyce has yet to turn around results at Selhurst Park, earning just one point from a possible 15 since arriving at the club.
In Palace's favour as they look to escape the drop, is the fact that they have more spending power than their rivals. They have already brought in Jeffrey Schlupp during the January window and look set to add Patrick van Aanholt to their squad.
Schlupp has already picked up an injury since signing for Palace, joining the likes of Jonathan Benteke, Fraizer Campbell, Scott Dann, Steve Mandanda, Pape Souare, Julian Speroni and Connor Wickham on the sidelines. Bakaray Sako and Wilfried Zaha could return after being away on AFCON duty.
Jonathan Moss will officiate. During his last Premier League match between Arsenal and Burnley, he sent off one player and gave four yellow cards.
Bournemouth are the [2.12] favourites, with the draw at [3.55] and Crystal Palace at [4.0].
The price for the home win is tempting considering that Palace are in such poor form. Five of Bournemouth's seven wins this season have come at home.
If the price for Draw No Bet was bigger than the [1.52] on offer, that would be my recommendation, but instead we'll take a chance on a fresh Bournemouth side coming good.
Over/Under 2.5 Goals
It's dead split, with unders and overs both available at [1.99].
That's a surprise when you take into account that Bournemouth's last seven games have seen three goals or more. Palace have also seen over 2.5 goals in three of their last four matches.
Over 2.5 goals is clearly good value, while Both Teams To Score at [1.83] is also worth considering.
Callum Wilson is the favourite in this market at [2.75]. He's scored six goals in 17 appearances this season, which are not statistics to give you much confidence.
For Palace, it's Christian Benteke who leads the way at [3.05]. His ten goals in 24 games is slightly more impressive, but overall this looks like a market best avoided.
Back Bournemouth to win at [2.12]
Back over 2.5 goals at [1.99]
