Crystal Palace v Leicester Prediction & Betting Tips, 28th April 201825th April 2018 / lee
Crystal Palace v Leicester Premier League Preview, 28th April 3.00pm
Palace couldn’t find a winner against Watford on the weekend and had to settle for a share of the spoils. It leaves them six points clear of the relegation zone heading into the weekend though and with a great chance of staying up. Leicester couldn’t come up with a winner either against Southampton in their midweek game at home against the relegation Saints, settling for a point.
Crystal Palace v Leicester Betting Odds*
Crystal Palace 21/20, Draw 5/2, Leicester 5/2* (Betting Odds taken at 6:25 p.m. on April 23rd, 2018)
Crystal Palace News and Form
The Eagles have returned a good five points from their last three league games and look to be well on their way to staying safe this season. They took a 3-2 win over Brighton in their last home fixture, snapping a three-match losing streak that they were on at Selhurst Park. On the weekend the Eagles played out a 0-0 draw with Watford away from home to pick up another survival point. Crystal Palace haven’t managed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last five at home and indeed have shipped at least two goals in each of their last three at Selhurst Park. Both teams to score at William Hill is at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:58 p.m. on April 23rd, 2018). Palace have only failed to score in one of their last six on home soil and they are actually undefeated at home against sides sitting between 7th and 13th currently in the table. In the William Hill correct score market a Crystal Palace 2-1 option is at 15/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:58 p.m. on April 23rd, 2018). 65% of games at Selhurst Park this season have ended over 2.5 goals so this should be entertaining.
Leicester News and Form
The Foxes haven’t been delivering with their usual intensity as they have only taken the two wins in their last ten league game (D4 L4). They were surprisingly flat for most of their home game last week against the relegation-threatened Southampton where they played out a 0-0 draw. Leicester suffered a 2-1 loss at Burnley in their last away game and that is a W2 L3 record in their last five road games, so they are hit and miss. Overall for the season away from the King Power the Foxes are W5 D5 L7. A half-time draw at William Hill is well worth a look at because Leicester have been drawing at half time in 12 of their 17 away games. They have produced well enough in front of goal with an average of 1.6 goals per away game, but defensively they have been around the same mark. There has been a clean sheet in just 18% of their away games in total this season. Leicester are on a five-match scoring streak away from home and Jamie Vardy has a nine-goal haul for the season on the road, making him their top away scorer. 65% of their away games this term have ended over 2.5 goals.
Crystal Palace v Leicester Head to Head
Palace were 3-0 winners at the King Power earlier this season in what was a bit of a surprise result. Leicester are actually W3 D1 L1 in their last five league outings against the Eagles so have a head to head lead. The Foxes have taken four points from their last two visits to Selhurst Park as well. Each of the last three Premier League fixtures between the pair have gone above the 2.5 goal line but both teams have scored in just two of the last seven games.
Who will win – Crystal Palace v Leicester Predictions
Palace could be a bit of value here. They play with a pretty good intensity and like to get themselves on the front foot and with Leicester not looking quite at their best at the moment, the Eagles could be left breathing a little easier with a three-point haul in this one.
