Crystal Palace v Liverpool Betting Odds*
Crystal Palace 13/2
* (Betting Odds were taken on August 16th, 2018 at 10:46 p.m.)
Crystal Palace News and Form
There was a good opening to the new Premier League season for Crystal Palace who produced a 2-0 win at Craven Cottage against Fulham. That was a good result because they were heavily second best in terms of possession against the newly promoted side, but they took their chances. Wilfried Zaha was on the scoresheet for them in the match with a second-half goal and he is at 11/4 odds in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken on August 17th, 2018 at 8:35 p.m.). They could get some game time out of Max Meyer for this one while another of their summer signings Cheikhou Kouyate could come into the middle. Scott Dann is still on the sidelines for the Eagles. Crystal Palace are actually on a four-match winning streak in the league and they have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven games, so we are fully expecting goals in this Selhurst Park clash.
Over 3.5 goals is at 5/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 17th, 2018 at 8:35 p.m.) for the fixture just to highlight that. Palace lost their opening seven games of last season so they are already well ahead to where they were last term. Overall last season Crystal Palace produced a W7 D5 L7 record at Selhurst Park in the top flight and they produced a three-match winning streak there to round off the season with. The Eagles have scored at least two goals in each of their last three home games as well. Last season Crystal Palace lost four of their six home games against the top-six finishers.
Liverpool News and Form
It was some start from Liverpool last weekend at Anfield as they took on a much-hyped West Ham side. Liverpool made light work of the fixture as they romped to a 4-0 success. Mo Salah opened his account for the new season with the opening goal of the game and in the bet365 first goalscorer market Salah is the 9/4 odds favourite* (Betting Odds were taken on August 17th, 2018 at 8:35 p.m.). Sadio Mane was the star of the show last weekend for Liverpool as he netted a brace. Daniel Sturridge came up with their fourth and final goal of the match. Liverpool are undefeated in 27 of their last 30 Premier League matches and after big moves in the summer transfer market, they will be expected to continue their strong start.
Liverpool collected a W9 D5 L5 record last season out on the road in the Premier League and they averaged over two goals per game on their travels. But because of their recent history against Crystal Palace then a Liverpool 2-1 correct score bet is at 8/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 17th, 2018 at 8:35 p.m.). Remember as well last season that Liverpool kept a clean sheet in just 26% of their away games in the top flight. The Reds will probably dominate possession in this game and while their attack is the most impressive point of their status, they have actually kept a clean sheet in five of their last seven Premier League matches.
Crystal Palace v Liverpool Head to Head
Liverpool won both league meetings last season and both successes over Palace were by a one-goal margin.

Who will win – Crystal Palace v Liverpool Predictions

They do have the extra advantage of quality in attack to that of the Eagles and that will probably count at the end of the day.
