Crystal Palace play host to Manchester United in the late Premier League kick-off on Saturday 9th May and it’s the perfect opportunity to make the most of the football betting offers at bet365.
It’s difficult to avoid getting the impression that Crystal Palace are already thinking about their summer holidays, with three defeats on the bounce since they reached 42 points and were no longer at risk of being relegated.
The Eagles had been soaring up until that point, but Alan Pardew’s side have failed to score in each of those losses and the Selhurst Park faithful will be hoping for a better showing on Saturday.
Manchester United have also lost three in a row and have failed to score during that spell, though they cannot be accused of giving up considering their effort against Chelsea a few games back.
Still, a top-four finish is not yet guaranteed and that will be the ultimate aim for Louis van Gaal, who must pick his side up after last week’s defeat at home to West Brom.
Plenty of football fans will be having a bet on what promises to be an interesting game, shown live on Sky Sport 1 at 17.30, with both casual punters and professional gamblers able to get more from their betting by using some of the football offers on bet365.
Bore Draw Money Back
A second-half strike from Juan Mata prevented the reverse fixture from ending goalless and, with both sides misfiring the moment, there is a case for this match ending 0-0 and emulating the scoreline of the penultimate Premier League meeting between these sides at Selhurst Park.
Hopefully, we’ll be in for an entertaining match but – if the game does end 0-0 – punters staking on the Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time and Scorecast markets for Crystal Palace v Man Utd will at least have their bets protected by a refund of losing stakes at bet365, thanks to the firm’s bore-draw promotion.
Each-Way First Goalscorers
Although the goals have dried up for Palace, Glenn Murray will likely remain the punter’s pick for those banking on the hosts to seize the initiative, with his six goals this season coming in the last 10 games alone.
Dwight Gayle would be of interest if starting the game – with five goals a decent return considering his limited pitch time – while Mile Jedinak’s penalty duties perhaps give him an edge as a midfield option over Jason Puncheon and recent hat-trick scorer Yannick Bolasie.
Wayne Rooney leads Man Utd’s scoring charts with 12 goals in the Premier League this season and may be preferred as a First Goalscorer selection to Robin van Persie, whose return from absence resulted in a missed penalty kick last weekend.
In midfield, Juan Mata will be looking to add to his eight goal haul for the campaign, while Marouane Fellaini, Ashley Young and Ander Herrera had been getting among the goals prior to the club’s barren spell.
A great feature at bet365 is the ability to back each-way first goalscorers, settled on all goalscorers at 1/3 odds for unlimited places in 90 minutes play. It means that you can have an each-way First Goalscorer bet on Crystal Palace v Man Utd and be safe in the knowledge that – if your player scores anytime during the game – bet365 will pay you out.
There is another safety net offered by bet365, with the option to Cash Out your bet in-play if the game looks to be going against your bet, or you just want to be sure of a profit.
With this feature you can Cash Out a bet in its entirety or you can partially Cash Out your bet, whilst leaving the remainder of your stake to run.
If you’re heading for a winning bet but the other team is threatening to score, you can cut and run with the returns that bet365 offer at that time by clicking on the Cash Out button located below your selection(s).
