Betting Tip: Half Time Draw

Steven Gerrard got off to a winning start to life at Aston Villa last week courtesy of two late strikes from Ollie Watkins and Tyrone Mings. It was a rather drab affair in truth and lacked much quality, it looks like the MO for Gerrard is making this Villa side harder to penetrate and keeping the goals conceded figure down.

Crystal Palace have played well this season without picking up many wins. It was another draw for the Eagles last week at Burnley which means they’ve now seen over half their games end all square. It could be another keenly fought encounter between two teams on a similar level across the park in terms of quality.

I can see this starting off quite tentatively and it’s the odds-against offering on the halftime draw that makes the most appeal in a tricky game to call. It landed in the Villa game last week
