Eagles can do their bit to bolster Liverpool win value with a goal

Crystal Palace offered a timely reminder of their knack for giving the top teams a run for their money when taking the lead three minutes into their 2-4 home loss to Manchester City last weekend.

The Eagles had also put two past City in the reverse fixture and having scored against Liverpool in defeat at Selhurst they can do likewise at Anfield to help us back the home win at odds-against.

Jurgen Klopp’s title chasers are a mere 1/5 for three points, but those odds jump to 6/4 if both teams to score is added to the mix. Liverpool have conceded in 12 of their last 13 home games in all competitions and won 10 of those in matches where both teams found the net.

Tip: Liverpool to beat Crystal Palace & both teams to score @ 6/4

League One’s meanest defence backed to beat and blank visiting Latics

Lincoln City have won 10 of their last 13 games in a rich vein of form that has carried them to the brink of the playoffs on the back of the best defensive record in the third tier.

The Imps are 13/20 to beat Wigan, but the 8/5 about them winning to nil looks well worth chancing given they’ve shipped just 13 goals in 21 league games at Sincil Bank this term. Incredibly Michael Skubala’s men have conceded just once in their last 10 at home and won five of their last six to nil.

Only six sides in the division have scored more away goals than the 29 mustered by the Latics, but they have been blanked by Wycombe and Port Vale inside their last six outings and Lincoln shut them out at the DW Stadium earlier this season.

Red Dragons can nail down automatic promotion spot with shutout success

Wrexham can seal back-to-back promotions with victory over rock-bottom Forest Green at the Racecourse Ground if fourth-placed MK Dons fail to beat third-placed Mansfield.

The Welsh side have won four of their last five and boast the best home record in League Two, so it’s no surprise they’re 4/11 to beat a visiting outfit that have lost five of their past six games.

Better value is on offer about the Wrexham win to nil (13/10) given they’ve kept clean sheets in six of their last 10 home games. Forest Green have blanked in five of their last six outings.
