Crystal Palace are on a nice bit of form at the moment with three victories in their last five games. All three of those wins were out on the road. It has been a disappointing season from them on home soil, so Bournemouth who are one point beneath them, in the table may fancy their chances of signing off for the season on a positive note.

Crystal Palace News and Form
The Eagles have put together some nice form at the end of the season. They are currently on a three-match undefeated streak of form, winning two of those. This season on home soil Palace have taken a W4 D5 L9 record and have won only one of their last six at Selhurst Park (D2 L3). The Eagles have managed only the 14 home goals this season at an average of 0.78 which is so strong as they have scored more than double that away from home. Palace have averaged just over a goal per game at Selhurst Park.
In total, they have banked a clean sheet in 39% of their home games too, with only 28% of games at Selhurst Park going over 2.5 goals. Palace have scored 64% of their home goals in the second period of games and have conceded 75% of home goals after the half time break as well. Palace have opened the scoring in just six of their home games this season. The Eagles have done well to lift themselves towards the middle of the table after some struggles this season. They start the weekend in twelfth place and could stay there or go one place either way. It’s not going to be a stressful afternoon for the Eagles on home soil.

The last two meetings at Selhurst Park have been drawn
Bournemouth News and Form
The Cherries collected a 1-0 home win over Spurs last weekend, which was a great result for them. It took them until about the last minute to break Tottenham who were playing with nine men though. It has been a season riddled with inconsistencies by the Cherries who have posted a W5 D1 L12 record on their top-flight travels this season. Nine of their away defeats for the season have been against the current top nine interestingly enough. In total the Cherries have averaged 1.3 goals per away game this season in the EPL.
67% of Bournemouth’s away games have made it over 2.5 goals and part of the reason for that is they have been poor in defence. The Cherries have conceded at an average of 2.2 goals per road fixture. There has been a clean sheet in 22% of road games for them. Of the losses that they have taken on their travels this season, 11 of the 12 have been by at least a two-goal margin. The Cherries have also been losing at the half time break in 10 of their 18 road fixtures for the season. Bournemouth have opened the scoring in just four away games this season.

Who will win – Crystal Palace v Bournemouth Predictions
This is such a tough game to read because the two are probably going to be pretty evenly matched in this Selhurst Park clash. The one thing that does look certain is that it could be a high-scoring game so simply going over 2.5 goals looks like a decent place to start for betting on this game.
