The TV cameras may be at the famed stadia of Anfield and Old Trafford, but one of the more interesting clashes in the Premier League Saturday is set to take place at the Hawthorns as West Brom host Crystal Palace.
Riding high, Tony Pulis’s Baggies are currently enjoying their best season in the Premier League and face a Palace side stuck in the relegation zone.
Adding extra spice to the occasion, Pulis still owes the south London club £3.77 million after losing a Hugh Court battle over a bonus payment he received shortly before leaving his former employer.
Look at the game from a betting angle, West Brom have won seven of their last eight Premier League games at home, and have looked very dangerous from set-pieces. On the flip side, Palace have conceded 18 goals from set-pieces this season, with only Hull having a worse record.
Salomon Rondon is West Brom’s leading scorer in the Premier League this season with seven, but lanky centre back Gareth McAuley is just one goal behind and can be backed at 15/2 with Paddy Power to score at any time during the game.
Recommendation: McAuley to score any time at 15/2 Paddy Power
