Crystal Palace 1.41 v 1.44 Liverpool
Liverpool’s conversion rate in front of goal this season is a long way below what it was last year. In fact it’s below what Palace are showing this season. Liverpool are getting 32.72% of their shots on target, however only 26.42% of these are finding the net, only Aston Villa and Burnley have a lower percentage.
So despite the fact that Palace can’t really defend anymore, Liverpool still shouldn’t be odds-on to win this game of football. Liverpool are more likely to score one goal than two and my goal expectancies for this match have given the below predicted odds;
- Palace 2.71
- Draw 3.98
- Liverpool 2.62
A lay of Liverpool at 1.9x is a good bet here, as would be the back of Palace at 4.33. However due to the green on the 2-2 and 3-3 score lines, and the draw being yellow, I want something in between. Therefore I’m siding with Palace on a +0.25 (0,+0.5) Asian Handicap.

Hull 1.42 v 1.22 Tottenham
Much like Liverpool, Tottenham are wasteful in front of goal when compared to the rest of the league. However 5% more of their shot on target end up as goals when compared to Liverpool, they do however have two shots a game less.
Hull are more clinical when it comes to goal scoring, they create less chances but put a higher percentage away. That’s what they have the same goal difference as Spurs.
Looking at both these sides records this season, I think that my odds from my goal expectancies give an accurate reflection of each teams chances;
- Hull 2.41
- Draw 3.83
- Tottenham 3.07
With Spurs being away from home and their lack of a cutting edge up front I want to be against them this afternoon. Therefore much like the early kick-off I’m siding with the hosts on a +0.25 (0,+0.5) Asian Handicap.
