This looks like a difficult weekend for making soccer picks across Europe. However, if there’s one league where there are odds that make you take notice, it’s the Premier League.

Crystal Palace has had a fairly weird season. They began abysmally, looking as if relegation was a certainty before sacking their manager and bringing in the steadying influence of Roy Hodgson. His presence and the rise of Wilfried Zaha to the ranks of genuine match winner have moved Palace up to the point where they’re almost safe. They went through a bit of a purple patch where everything they touched turned to gold, but they’ve slipped back and could still be dragged into the dogfight at the bottom.

They’re up against the 2015-16 Premier League champions on Saturday, and Leicester is another side that has seen a management change and some swings in their fortune. Leicester now looks set for a finish in the top half of the table, something that looked beyond them under Craig Shakespeare.

With my soccer picks I’m going for an away win, and the odds of +283 with Pinnacle are very welcoming. Palace’s current home form is not all that impressive, so even the team's Holmesdale Fanatics might struggle to inspire their players to great heights in this one.

Southampton FC vs. Bournemouth AFC

Relegation is right on Southampton's doorstep entering Saturday's game. They are in the bottom three and not showing the kind of form that will be needed to pull out of that particular zone. Their opponents this weekend are 11th-place Bournemouth, and host Southampton has their work cut out for them. Bournemouth isn't a world beater but they play good football and could pick some serious holes in the Southampton defense.

The odds for my selection on an away win are incredible here. On the soccer odds board you can get +401 with Pinnacle, that provides a whole lot of value -- value I can’t ignore.
