Southampton v Crystal Palace Anytime Goalscorer - Benteke

Football - Premier League - 05 Apr 20:00

There are number of angles i was looking at this game and have settled with Benteke to score in the game. What i like about this bet (as opposed to a Palace win which i also think is value) is it has a bit more cover if Sam decides to set up defensively and approaches the game as one not to lose. The obvious point is Benteke is in form having scored and assisted against Chelsea and having scored twice for Belgium in the game before.I was initially worried how Zaha and Townsend would go against 2 very good full backs in Soares and Bertrand but i tend to think they will favour coming inside which should free up space for the full backs to get in crosses - particularly Ward.

The second factor is Benteke is up against what is really Southampton's second choice centre halves having sold Fonte to West Ham and lost Van Dijk to injury. I just don't see Yoshida and Stephens been able to match Benteke in the air.

Last time they met Benteke got 2 and that was with Van Dijk playing. I think Palace will be a threat from set pieces and as a team have more height. Anyone following me will know i think Southampton's lack of rotation will catch up with them and they were lucky not to lose against Bournemouth in their last game tiring in the second half.
