Whereas Crystal Palace hit a wall, Watford has picked up two impressive Premier League wins in a row. Let's go over this upcoming fixture and see where the value lies in the soccer odds.

Odds Overview
When we glance over the soccer odds, we see that oddsmakers are expecting a hard-fought match at Vicarage Road. The Hornets have enjoyed a fine start after getting promoted to the top flight, and they're actually classified as +150 favorites for Sunday's match at home. For those wanting to add Crystal Palace to their tickets, you can back them at +200, with a draw quoted at approximately +230.


So much for getting promoted to the big time and struggling. Watford has taken full advantage of being "the underdog", and the Hornets have already shown they belong.

They've earned nine points through their first six matches and will enter Sunday having earned two consecutive league wins, over Swansea City and Newcastle. Odion Ighalo has emerged as the team's go-to player in attack, as he's already scored four goals in league play.


Crystal Palace
After starting off the EPL season on fire, the Eagles have come back down to earth, having lost consecutive league matches. They fell 1-0 at home to Manchester City and then suffered the same result, this time away to Tottenham this past weekend.

Needless to say, Palace will be itching to get back on the pitch and get back to their winning ways. The Eagles will be taking on Charlton Athletic in Capital One Cup action during the week and will be hoping to gain momentum with a victory ahead of the weekend.


Premier League Pick
We know that the Hornets have been a pleasant surprise and that they'll have the huge benefit of playing at home, but this Palace side has proven to be strong, and we think the Eagles will be able to earn at least a point here.

Momentum is a fickle thing, and Watford has that at the moment, but we've also seen how quickly the tide can turn in the Premier League. Look for Crystal Palace to bring a strong effort and walk out of Vicarage Road with at least a point. Our soccer pick will be a draw in this matchup.

Predicted Final Score: Watford 1 Crystal Palace 1

Premier League Soccer Pick: Draw +230 at Bet365
