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 17/20
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 6th, 2019 at 9:40 p.m.)
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.
Bournemouth earned a 2-1 home win over Palace in October
The head to head is even at one win each and three draws in the last five meetings
The Cherries have lost just one of their last nine against the Eagles
The last two meetings at Selhurst Park have been drawn
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.
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.

This is a big game for Cardiff as they have to produce a victory to try and keep their survival hopes alive. They are five points away from safety with just the two to play. Basically, if they don’t better whatever Brighton manage on the weekend, they will be down. Crystal Palace are safe up near mid-table. Read our Cardiff v Crystal Palace betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 17/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 2nd, 2019 at 7:34 p.m.)
Cardiff have to produce a win here. Last weekend they missed a big opportunity at the already relegated Fulham to get something on the board. The Bluebirds lost that game 1-0. That is back to back league defeats for them now and they have lost five of their last six played. Cardiff have failed to hit the back of the net in four of their last five. On home soil, they have also taken back to back defeats, but those were tough games against Chelsea and Liverpool.
The overall home form of Cardiff this season is W6 D2 L10 but all of the wins that they have taken have been against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. The Bluebirds are actually W5 D2 L1 in their eight home games this season against teams currently 11th or lower. So that’s a pretty good return. Cardiff have averaged just a tiny shade over a goal per home game. 61% of Cardiff’s home games have gone over 2.5 goals. They have been level at half time in 10 of their home games.
There was a 0-0 draw between Cardiff and Palace in December
Palace are unbeaten in three against the Bluebirds
Cardiff have won three of their last four at home over Palace in all competitions
Both teams have scored in three of the last eleven in all competitions
Crystal Palace played out a 0-0 home draw against Everton last weekend. They not playing for anything at the moment, but the notable thing about their season so they have done a lot better away from home than at Selhurst Park. So that could be bad news for Cardiff. Palace have won four of their last five away games (L1) and that is part of an overall away record of W8D2 L8 that they have produced so far. In their away games Palace have scored at an average of 1.6 goals per game.
So they certainly have the form behind them. But they will be facing a very desperate Cardiff side. Of the eight away wins that they have taken this season, four have been by one goal margin and four by a two-goal margin. Palace have actually been ahead at the halftime break in exactly half of their away games, which is a superb return. They have, however, conceded 79% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures. Just to put their away season into context, Palace have the best home record of all teams outside of the Big Six.
The draw in the match outright looks to be a pretty good proposition for this game. Cardiff have been struggling in front of goal and there is enough about the away form of Palace to go and hold their own. Draw.

Everton are still in the race for a top-seven finish this season and they have some good momentum behind them with four wins nit their last five played. But they will know that they won’t get an easy game at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace. The Eagles took a fantastic away win at Arsenal last weekend. Read our Crystal Palace v Everton betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 17/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 25th, 2019 at 7:36 p.m.)
The Eagles did a fantastic job last weekend in picking up a 3-2 win at Arsenal. That continued their sequence of alternating between a win and a loss across their last nine league games now. It was another good away success for them and they have been a stronger away side than home side this season. The Eagles have lost three of their last four on home soil (W1). The one exception was a home win over the relegated Huddersfield. At home this season the Eagles have produced a record of W4 D4 L9, which has been a disrupting return.
The Eagles have gone W1 D1 L7 in their nine games at home so far against the current top ten. This season the Eagles have averaged under a goal per game at home and only 29% of league fixtures at Selhurst Park have gone over 2.5 goals. In total they have bagged a clean sheet in 35% of their home games, so haven’t been that bad at the back. All four of the home wins that they have taken this season have been with a clean sheet. Three of their four home wins have been by a margin of two goals exactly. Palace are on a seven-match scoring streak.
Everton were 2-0 home winners over the Eagles in October
Everton have won the last two league meetings
Palace are winless in their last eight EPL meetings with the Toffees
Palace are W2 D2 L1 in their last five visits to Goodison Park
Everton produced a 4-0 win over Manchester United last weekend to make it four wins nit their last five games (L1). The only game they didn’t win that sequence saw them suffered a shock away defeat at the already-relegated Fulham. Everton have actually lost two of their last three away games (W1) in the top flight. Overall this season they have produced an away record of W5 D3 L9. The Toffees have alternated between a loss and a win in their last seven away games. Next up in the sequence, therefore, would be a victory of them on the road.
Everton have averaged 1.3 goals per away game this season and away from home, they have conceded one goal more than which they have scored. Overall this season they have taken a clean sheet in 24% of their away games. The last three wins that they have taken away from Goodison Park have been with a clean sheet. Everton have been sat level at the halftime break in 10 of their 17 away games this season and they haven’t been involved in an away draw in eleven. 78% of the away goals which they have conceded this season have come in the second half of games.
Everton have been in good form lately but they have had a couple of poor away results recently. But then you have Crystal Palace who haven’t produced a lot of form at home this season and it’s tough to pick a winner. The draw in the match outright actually looks the best option.

Arsenal managed to put some poor league away form behind them with a win at Watford last weekend. That wasn’t a convincing victory though. But the Gunners have had a fantastic season on home soil in the top flight and will be looking for more points as they push for a top-four finish. Crystal Palace could find themselves mathematically safe after this weekend’s action. Read our Arsenal v Crystal Palace betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 5/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 16th, 2019 at 11:57 p.m.)
Arsenal managed to dig out a 1-0 victory away at Watford last weekend, despite the Hornets being reduced to 10 men early in the game. Arsenal still looked second-best throughout the fixture. It has not been a good season away from home for them but their home form can’t be faulted. Arsenal are at W14 D2 L1 this season at home in the top flight. They are currently on a tremendous 10 match winning streak in the EPL at the Emirates. The Gunners have scored in each of their last 16 league games on home soil.
Arsenal have scored at least two goals in each of their last eight home fixtures. Overall they have averaged 2.3 goals per home fixtures this season, but they have also been strong defensively. Only 41% of league games at the Emirates have gone over 2.5 goals this season. That is because Arsenal have only conceded 12 home goals this season at an average of 0.7 per game. Of their 14 home victories recorded, 12 of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. The Gunners have scored 67% of their home goals in the second period of fixtures and they have also opened the scoring in 12 of their 17 home games. Manchester city in Liverpool are the only teams in the league to have scored more goals than Arsenal this season.
There was a 2-2 draw between these teams earlier this season
Arsenal are undefeated in their last three Premier League games against Palace
Crystal Palace are winless in their last seven league visits to Arsenal
Each of the last three meetings have gone over 3.5 goals
Crystal Palace suffered a 3-1 home reverse against Manchester City last weekend. That leaves them having alternated between a win and a loss in each of their last eight league fixtures. The good news for them is that if the streak continues they will be picking up a victory in this game. Away from home Crystal Palace hold a W7 D2 L8 record this season and that is better than what they have managed on home soil. Crystal Palace may well be a threat in this game because they have won three of their last four away games (L1).
Looking back further they have won five of their last eight away fixtures in the Premier League (D1 L3) which has been very good and enough to get them away from relegation troubles. The Eagles have taken a clean sheet in 29% of their away games, and they have both scored and conceded 26 goals on their travels this season. Palace have only managed the one clean sheet in their last six away from Selhurst Park. The Eagles do have a good half time away record of W8 D6 L3. They have scored 65% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures and have conceded 77% of their away goals after the halftime break.
Crystal Palace have put together some nice away form this season however it doesn’t match up to what Arsenal have produced at the Emirates. There may well be goals at both ends in this one but Arsenal can still take the victory.

Crystal Palace v Manchester City Premier League Preview, 14th April 2.05pm
After a midweek misfire in the Champions League, Manchester City make a tricky trip to Selhurst Park to face the Eagles. The Citizens are on a big winning streak in the league, but Palace are more than capable of pulling off an upset. As they did when they visited the Etihad earlier this season. Read our Crystal Palace v Manchester City betting tips for more.
Man City 3/10
Crystal Palace 17/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 11th, 2019 at 3:44 p.m.)
Crystal Palace picked up three points last weekend with a 1-0 victory out at Newcastle. That leaves them with three wins at their last five Premier League games. Across their last 10 league fixtures, Palace are W5 D2 L3 so haven’t been in bad shape at all. They did claim a win in their last home fixture which was a 2-0 success over Huddersfield but that is their only victory in their last four at Selhurst Park. The overall home record of Crystal Palace this season in the Premier League is W4 D4 L8.
They have been a low scoring side on home soil in the top flight as Palace have scored just 13 goals all season. Just 25% of matches at Selhurst Park this season have gone over 2.5 goals. To their credit, the Eagles have picked up a clean sheet in 38% of their home fixtures. Of the four home victories that they have recorded, three of them have been by a two goal margin. Crystal Palace are currently on a six-match scoring streak on home soil and 62% of their home goals have been scored in the second period of fixtures. They have conceded 76% of their home goals in the second half of games as well.
Palace took a 3-2 win at the Etihad back in December
There was a 0-0 draw in last season’s corresponding fixture
Man City are W2 D1 in their last three visits to Selhurst Park
Both teams have scored in just two of the last seven meetings
Can Manchester City keep their momentum going? The Citizens are currently on an eight-match winning streak in the Premier League and they have won their last three out on the road. Their defence has really tightened up as they have conceded just the one goal in their last seven Premier League fixtures. This season Manchester City have won six of the seven away games against sides currently in the bottom half of the table, the one exception a 2-1 defeat at Newcastle. Manchester City averaged 1.9 goals per away game this season. They have scored 64% of their away goals in the first period of fixtures. Man City are on a 16 match scoring streak in the top flight.
In defence, Manchester City have conceded at an average of just 0.6 goals per away game and less than half of their away fixtures have made it over 2.5 goals. The Citizens have claimed a clean sheet in 60% of their away games, with both teams scoring in just 33% of their away games. of their 13 away victories recorded this season, only three of them have been by just the one-goal margin. Manchester City have been leading at the break in 10 of their 15 away games. Of the goals that Manchester City have conceded away from home this season, two-thirds of them have been after the halftime break.
This is a tricky game for the Citizens and last weekend against Cardiff and in midweek against Spurs, they looked really flat. There may well be a decent opportunity here for the Eagles to raise their game and throw down a serious challenge. Draw.

The Magpies had a setback last Monday as they lost at Arsenal. They do look to have done enough already to not be worried over relegation. The Eagles picked up a good home win on the weekend and they will be a threat in this as they have produced some fairly decent away form as of late. Read our Newcastle v Crystal Palace betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 2/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 2nd, 2019 at 11:33 p.m.)
Newcastle suffered a 2-0 reverse at Arsenal on Monday night, but still, they haven’t been in bad shape lately at all. The Magpies are W3 D1 L2 in their last six and each of the three wins in that sequence were at St James’ Park. Their home record for the season stands at W7 D1 L8 at the moment and they are on a five-match winning streak there. In their home games, this season Newcastle have returned a total of an average of 1.2 goals per home game. They taken a clean sheet in 31% of their home fixtures.
Four of their seven home wins have been by a one-goal margin and they have netted in each of their last five home games. Home and away, they have not managed a clean sheet in any of their last five. Going back to their scoring streak at home, they have scored at least two goals in each of their last five EPL games at St James’ Park. 63% of their home goals have cropped up in the second period of fixtures. The Magpies have only scored the opening goal in 5 of their 16 EPL home games.
There was a 0-0 draw in the first meeting this season
There have now been back to back draws between the Magpies and Eagles
Newcastle are undefeated in four against Palace (W2 D2)
Newcastle have won three of their last four home games against Palace 1-0 (D1)
The Eagles suffered a 2-0 loss at Tottenham in midweek which leagues them at W3 L3 in their last six league games, home and away. It has been form good enough to put some distance between themselves and the drop zone. Palace were on a two-match winning streak away from home, having beaten Leicester and Burnley, before that loss against Spurs on Wednesday. That is just one loss in their last four away games then for the Eagles which is part of an overall away record of W6 D2 L8 record on their travels this season.
The Eagles have netted 25 away goals this season, which is an average of 1.5 goals per away game. Both teams have scored in 62% of their away games, Palace picking up a clean sheet in 25% of their road games. Four of their six wins away from home have been by a margin of at least two goals. Crystal Palace have actually done well because they have been leading at halftime in eight of their away games. Before their blank against Spurs, they were on an eleven match scoring streak in the Premier League. They are without a clean sheet in five on the road though.
These two are likely to be evenly matched. The Magpies have done alright on home soil lately while Palace have the away form. Neither would likely be disappointed with picking up a point in this one.

Spurs cruelly suffered a 2-1 defeat at Anfield against Liverpool on the weekend, with Toby Alderweireld putting through his own net in the final minute of the game. This will be their first ever game in their brand new stadium. It should be a great atmosphere. Palace won on the weekend to further distance themselves from the drop zone. Read our Tottenham v Crystal Palace betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 13/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 31st, 2019 at 4:16 p.m.)
Spurs are in some bad form at the moment. They are now only D1 L4 in their last five league games. On the weekend they paid a visit to Anfield to face Liverpool and produced a fantastic second-half performance, only to be cruelly handed defeat through an own goal at the death. But they should be fired up for this, their first ever home game at the Spurs Stadium. Spurs have a home record of W9 D1 L4 this season from their games at Wembley. Their last home game was a North London derby against Arsenal which ended in a 1-1 draw.
Spurs are undefeated in their last four at home (W3 D1) and in their campaign at home this season, they have scored an average of 1.8 goals per game. They have conceded at under a goal per game on average as well. In total Spurs have taken a clean sheet in 29% of home game, but only have one clean sheet in their last six home fixtures. Home and away, Tottenham have no clean sheet in six. Spurs have scored 60% of their home goals this season after the half time break. Their top-four finish now is in some serious jeopardy with this drop in form. Will life at their new home get them back on track?
Spurs won 1-0 at Selhurst Park in November
Palace then won a home FA Cup tie against Spurs in January
Spurs have won five of the last six meetings in all competitions
6 of the last 7 meetings have produced a 1-0 scoreline (Spurs W5 L1)
The Eagles collected a 2-0 home win over Huddersfield on the weekend, a result which actually relegated the Terriers. That moved the Eagles on to a good W4 D2 L2 record in their last eight games. Palace have won their last two on the road, going undefeated in their last three away from Selhurst Park. The Eagles have scored almost double the amount of goals away from home than they have managed at home in the league this season. 60% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals.
Palace have scored eleven goals in their last four away games. They have scored at least two goals now in six of their last seven on the road. So the scoring form is there from there to suggest that they can get at Spurs. Palace are currently on an eleven match scoring streak in the top flight, home and away. They are without a clean sheet in any of their last four on the road though. Of the goals which they have conceded away from home, 75% of them have been in the second half of matches. They have scored 64% of their away goals in the second half of games.
This feels a little unfair for Crystal Palace because this will be a big night for Spurs in their first game in their new home. That will create an atmosphere that wouldn’t have been at the same level if this one had been played at Wembley. That could be a huge factor. Spurs to win and both teams to score.

Palace start the weekend five points clear of the drop zone so still have some work to do. They have lost two of their last three played.

Crystal Palace 1/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 24th, 2019 at 10:18 p.m.)
The Eagles were taken down at home in a 2-1 loss by Brighton in their last fixture. That is back to back home losses that the Eagles have suffered. It has not been a great season on home turf from the Eagles at all. They have only produced a W3 D4 L8 in the EPL this term at Selhurst Park. It is well worth noting that two of those three home wins from Palace have been against sides currently in the bottom four. The Eagles have not conceded in any of their three home games against sides in the bottom four at Selhurst Park this term. Overall this season, Palace have scored just 11 home goals.
But their defence hasn’t been all that bad really because they have picked up a clean sheet in 33% of their home fixtures. They have conceded in total, at just over a goal per game. Both teams have scored in just 33% of Palace’s home games. 27% of league fixtures there have gone under 2.5 goals. Palace are on a five-match scoring streak at home, and they haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last three. Palace have scored in each of their last ten league games, home and away. The Eagles have conceded 76% of their home goals in the second half of fixtures.
Palace won 1-0 at Huddersfield earlier this season
Both teams have scored in just one of the last seven meetings
Palace lost this corresponding fixture 3-0 last season
Huddersfield have failed to score in their last three against the Eagles in all competitions
It is a three-match losing streak that Huddersfield are back on a the moment. That’s fourteen defeats in their last sixteen games played. Only an astounding miracle prevents them from playing Championship football next season. Last time out they blew a tremendous winning position at 3-1 away at West Ham to lose 4-3. That leaves Huddersfield with a four-match losing streak away from home doing currently and they only managed to score in one of those. The goals at West Ham actually snapped a five-match away sequence in which the Terriers had failed to score.
The Terriers have only netted 11 goals on their travels this season in the top flight. They have conceded at over two goals per game on average with a clean sheet in just 13% of their road games. Their overall away record is W1 D3 L11 this season and they are on a nine-match winless streak away from home in the top flight. Huddersfield have not taken a clean sheet in their last four on the road and they have opened the scoring in only three road games this term. Fulham are the only side in the division with a worse away record than that of Huddersfield’s.
Palace look a good proposition to churn out three points in this home fixture. They have the defensive strengths to keep Huddersfield at bay. The manner of their defeat at West Ham has to have really been heavy for the Terriers to deal with. Home win to nil.

* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 14th, 2019 at 8:39 p.m.)
The Hornets aren’t in bad current form at the moment. They have won four of their last six played (L2). The two defeats in what sequence happened in away games at Liverpool and Manchester City, which is nothing to be overly concerned about. So they are shaping up well and they have lost just one of their last six at Vicarage Road as well. So far in this season’s FA Cup Watford have played all of their games away from home, winning at Woking, Newcastle and QPR without having conceded a single goal. Can they make the best of home advantage in this one?
Watford won both league games this season 2-1 against Palace
Watford are unbeaten in three at home against Palace (W1 D2)
Palace are without a win in three games against the Hornets
Palace won the last FA Cup meeting, a semi-final in 2016
The Eagles have been shaping up much better in 2019 than they had been over the first half of the season. They have lost only two of their last nine games in all competitions. Those two defeats were at home as well. They have been a bigger threat in their away games than at home. They did take a home win over Spurs in the fourth round of the FA Cup. Palace are on a three-match winning streak away from home in all competitions, unbeaten in four. They have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven on the road as well. Their only loss in their last seven away games (W5 D1) was at Liverpool in the league. They have only one clean sheet in five away from home though.
This should be a close contest but Watford may just be able to get across the finish line. We see them being pushed all the way but home advantage may just swing it. Watford to win in the match outright at 13/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 14th, 2019 at 8:39 p.m.)

Crystal Palace 4/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 6th, 2019 at 7:38 p.m.)
The Eagles secured a very good away win at Burnley last weekend which was their third win in five Premier League games (D1 L1). They have only lost one of their last six played, home and away, so things are going well at the moment. Their record at home this season isn’t great at just W3 D4 L7 though. They are W1 D1 L1 in their last three there. But as a positive for them in this one Crystal Palace have lost just one of six home games this season against other teams in the bottom half of the table.
The Eagles are at just the ten goals at home this season. 21% of games at Selhurst Park have ended under 2.5 goals. That having been said Palace have scored in each of their last four home fixtures in the EPL. 80% of their home goals conceded have been in the second half of matches. Bottom side Huddersfield are the only team who have a worse home record in the division than the Eagles have. Palace have scored the opening goal in 5 of their 14 home games only.
Brighton took a 3-1 home win over Crystal Palace earlier this season
The Eagles are unbeaten in four home games against Brighton (W2 D2)
Palace were 3-2 winners in last season’s corresponding fixture
Each of the last three meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Brighton were winless in seven league games before grinding out a 1-0 home win over bottom side Huddersfield last weekend. That was a big three points for the Seagulls to stop their slide. They are W1 D3 L5 in their last nine. That home success last weekend has done nothing to arrest their poor away form though. The Seagulls are winless in six top-flight away games, collecting just the one point in that sequence. They have tallied 13 away goals this season.
The away record of the Seagulls is W2 D2 L10. They have conceded quite heavily on their travels with 1.8 goals against them per game on average. They have conceded a total of ten goals in their last four away games alone. Brighton have managed to earn just one away clean sheet themselves this season. They are without one in any of their last nine on the road. Brighton have actually conceded at least two goals in each of their last five away games.
The Eagles are in good enough form to come up with three points here. The away form of Brighton just hasn’t been there and the Eagles can take them down. Home win in a low scoring game probably.
