Sunday 27th April at Noon sees Sunderland host Crystal Palace in a massive relegation six pointer and we have free football betting tips.
Sunderland find themselves 20th, three points from safety while Cardiff are 18th two points from safety so three points would be massive for either side in their bid for survival. The issue arising here though is Sunderland’s poor home form and Cardiff’s poor away form.
The Black Cats have had a season to forget until the last week or so with most people writing them off with games away to Man City and Chelsea to come. Four points from those two fixtures later and there seems to be life on Wearside. The draw away to Man City was massive but the win away to Chelsea seems like a miracle. Those results ended a run of five consecutive defeats and they will need another performance like those rather than the ones of the winless run.
As I said though, home form has been a huge issue, Sunderland are without a win in four on Wearside and have won just one of their previous ten matches at the Stadium of Light. This would be the ideal time to find a bit of form at home but their performances all season have been better against the sides further up the league.
Cardiff have also picked up a couple of decent results of late beating Southampton and drawing with West Brom to give them a chance of staying up if Norwich, West Brom or Fulham slip up. Their recent form doesn’t read too badly after them results with them losing three, winning two and drawing two of their last seven matches. As I mentioned though, despite those good results away to Southampton and West Brom their away form has been poor all season, winning just twice away all season.
This is consequently a really tough match to call, Sunderland are favourites but far too low to be worth a bet at 19/20 with Coral while Cardiff are at 10/3 with Betfred. These are too sides I would have avoided betting on all season really so I would go for the draw here at 5/2 with William Hill, the two sides drew at the Cardiff City Stadium earlier in the season and with both sides needing a result, I can see it being one that suits neither.
Cardiff are the third lowest scorers in the Premier League this season while Sunderland are the fourth lowest, making the next price a bit of a surprise. Considering Sunderland have managed just two goals in their last five home matches and Palace have managed just twelve away from home all season, under 2.5 goals looks too big a price at evens with Bet365.
