Crystal Palace v Tottenham Premier League Preview, 13th August 12.00pm
This should be a pretty competitive London derby on Sunday. Crystal Palace still have relegation concerns despite their upward turn in form. The Eagles though have just gone off the boil on a four-match winless streak. Spurs will be hoping to make up some ground on the top four this weekend by collecting an important three points out at Selhurst Park.
Crystal Palace v Tottenham Betting Odds*
Tottenham 1/2, Draw 10/3, Crystal Palace 6/1* (Betting Odds taken at 11:48 p.m. on February 20th, 2018)
Crystal Palace News and Form
Palace’s future has just started to look a little shaky again as they have only collected two points from their last four league games played now. However, they have remained strong on home soil which makes things interesting for this one. The Eagles are W2 D2 L1 in their last five league games at Selhurst Park, having lost just one of their last eleven there in the league. So they aren’t easy to knock off and are unbeaten in three there. Losing Wilfried Zaha, who was the spark of inspiration to get them going this season, has been a blow though. The Eagles have scored 16 goals in their 13 league home games this season but defensively haven’t been all that tight having conceded an average of 1.5 goals per game. 62% of fixtures at Selhurst Park have gone over 2.5 goals. Of the goals that the Eagles have conceded on home soil this season, a massive 74% of them have been in the first half of matches. Crystal Palace have scored in each of their last six league games home and away but will they have enough to have the Lilywhites rattled.
Tottenham News and Form
This could end up being a good weekend for the Lilywhites as they look to haul themselves into the top four race. They banked a 1-0 home win over rivals Arsenal Last time out in the league and that extended their great form to nine unbeaten now (W6 D3) in the top flight. The Lilywhites have drawn their last two away games out at Southampton and Liverpool though and have collected just the two away wins in their last nine away from Wembley. In the William Hill correct score market Tottenham 1-0 and a 2-0 are both at 13/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:46 p.m. on February 21st, 2018). Given their positive streak of form lately they don’t look like losing this game and the Lilywhites have scored at least two goals in six of their last nine. Harry Kane is the first goalscorer favourite with his tally now up to 23 for the season which is just two fewer than Crystal Palace’s entire total for the season. Spurs have scored two-thirds of their away goals after the half time break this season.
Crystal Palace v Tottenham Head to Head
Palace fell to a 1-0 loss out at Spurs earlier in the season and that is the third league game in a row that that has happened to them. In the last nine Premier League meetings between these two, Spurs have gone W6 D1 L2 and of those five wins for the Lilywhites, five of them were by a 1-0 scoreline. Tottenham have won their last two league visits to Selhurst Park. Both teams have scored in just one of the last six meetings in all competitions.
Who will win – Crystal Palace v Tottenham Predictions
Tottenham to win by a one-goal margin in this London derby has some good appeal but they will likely be put through a tough battle in the match. Palace really need to get something on the board to ease the pressure, but the extra quality of Spurs will likely shine through.
