Liverpool maintained their four-point lead over Man City at the top of the table after the last round of action. They had a bit of a grind to get a 1-0 away win at Brighton, their goal coming from the penalty spot. Built once again it showed that they can dig out those points on the road. Crystal Palace lost last weekend and probably aren’t fancying this trip to Anfield. Read our Liverpool v Crystal Palace betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 12/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 14th, 2019 at 9:40 p.m.)

The Eagles have scored 64% of their away goals in the second period of games
They have conceded 65% of their away goals after the half time break as well
It is going to be the home win that we predictably predict to happen in this one. The Reds should be easily strong enough to see off a side who are really struggling in front of goal. Liverpool to win to nil.

The Eagles have improved well enough to have left some good distance between themselves and the drop zone. They started the new year with a win and will be looking for more as they host Watford on Saturday. The Hornets are holding ground inside the top ten and have only lost one of their last six. Read our Crystal Palace v Watford betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 6/5

There may not be too much to choose between the two of them at Selhurst Park on the weekend. Neither would be that disappointed in picking up a point you would feel. The draw in the match outright looks a good fit.

Wolves caused the upset of the weekend as they came from behind at Wembley to beat Tottenham. That was a tremendous three points for them and it lifted them up to seventh.

Palace have conceded at least two goals in their last three road games
The Eagles have conceded 65% of their away goals in the second half of fixtures
Only Newcastle and Huddersfield have scored fewer league goals than Palace
Wolves are the kings of the upset it would seem and they have to be a bit of value on home soil in this one. They do have the defensive strengths to keep a low-scoring Crystal Palace team at bay. Home win.

Palace couldn’t find a way to break down Cardiff in midweek at Selhurst Park, having to settle for a draw. Now they get a tougher challenge as they welcome Chelsea. The form of the Blues has been a bit hit and miss lately, but they got a good win out at Watford on Boxing Day to steady themselves. Read our Crystal Palace v Chelsea betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 17/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 28th, 2018 at 3:00 p.m.)
The Eagles couldn’t break down Cardiff’s resilience at Selhurst Park on Boxing Day the game ending 0-0
That leaves Crystal Palace unbeaten in three league matches
Places are W2 D1 in their last three home games in the top flight
Those are the only two home victories that they have recorded so far this season (D3 L4)

Those were 2-1 scoreline wins over Brighton and then Watford
Chelsea’s overall away record this season is W6 D1 L2
The Blues have won all five away games against sides currently 13th and lower
18 goals is the tally of away goals for the Blues this season
They have conceded just the eight goals on their travels

Chelsea have only the one clean sheet in their last five EPL games
Chelsea have scored in each of their last six away games but are without a clean sheet in four
The Blues have been leading at the half time break in 5 of their 9 away games this season
While ultimately Chelsea should do enough to get three points on the board they are likely to get pushed hard by Palace. The Eagles may have a little more space in attack than they did against Cardiff. Chelsea to win.

Crystal Palace pulled off the shock of the season as they came from behind to beat Man City at the Etihad on the weekend. That was a massive boost for their survival hopes. Can they build upon it? Cardiff took a hammering at home against Manchester United on the weekend. Read our Crystal Palace v Cardiff betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 8/13
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 23rd, 2018 at 2:12 p.m.)
The Eagles pulled off a tremendous 3-2 win at Man City on the weekend
That improved their current form to W3 D1 L2
They have won their last two at Selhurst Park both with a clean sheet
Palace have only scored the five home goals this season
They have failed to score in 62% of their home fixtures in the EPL
But three of those have been in their last two games
Defensively they have done well conceding just eight goals at home this term
Only one game at Selhurst Park this season has gone over 2.5 goals
Palace have been trailing at the break in just one of their home games this season
Seven of the eight home goals they have conceded have been in the second half of games

The Eagles have won three of the last four against the Bluebirds
Both teams have scored in just three of the last ten meetings
Cardiff have lost four of their last five trips to Selhurst Park in all competitions
The Bluebirds suffered a 1-5 reverse on home soil against Manchester United on the weekend
That is back to back losses which they have suffered
Cardiff have yet to win a single away game this season (D1 L7)
Not helping them is a lack of goals as they have scored just five on the road this season
Cardiff have conceded 18 goals on their travels
That’s an average of 2.25 goals against them per road game in the EPL
The Bluebirds are on a six-match losing streak away
They have scored in three of their last four away games
50% of their away games have made it over 3.5 goals
They have been losing at half time in five of their right away games
Of their five away goals scored, four of them have been after the halftime break
Cardiff have the worst away record in the top flight
Only Fulham have conceded more league goals than they have done this term
What a lift Palace got for themselves last weekend. They have to turn that into an even bigger positive of making it back to back wins against Cardiff. The Bluebirds don’t look a threat on the road. Palace to win to nil.

Man City bounced back immediately last weekend after their loss against Chelsea. They bagged three points against Everton and look as if they have a good chance of getting another three-points this weekend. Crystal Palace are stuck in the bottom six but did give themselves a boost last weekend with a win. Their recent form at the Etihad has been horrendous though. Read our Manchester City v Crystal Palace betting tips for more.
Man City 1/8
Crystal Palace 14/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 18th, 2018 at 1:37 p.m.)
The Citizens collected a 3 -1 home success over Everton at the Etihad last weekend. That moved them on to a great W7 L1 record in their last eight league fixtures. That victory also saw them extend their perfect home league form for the season in the EPL with them now having taken nine wins from nine. Manchester City have produced 33 goals in their nine home games. It has been phenomenal stuff at times. Just six goals they have conceded on home soil too this season. It equates to a clean sheet in 33% of their home fixtures so far this term. 67% of this season’s league games at the Etihad have gone over 3.5 goals not too surprisingly.
Manchester City have scored in both halves of every home game this season. They have been W7 D2 at half time in their home games. They have a trending scoreline as each of their last three home wins have been by a 3-1 scoreline. They haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last four at home. They have netted at least two goals in every single home game so far. City have the best home record in the top flight and the best defensive record this season. Only Liverpool have conceded fewer league goals than they have this season.
City have won their last two home games against Palace 5-0
The Citizens are on a nine-match winning streak at home against the Eagles
Palace have scored at least three goals in each of their last four visits to the Etihad
Both teams have scored in three of the last eleven meetings
The Eagles needed a good three points under their belt and they got them last weekend with a 1-0 home win over Leicester. They head out on the road this weekend though where their form is W2 D1 L6 this season. But they have little away form going for themselves. They have lost their last two road games, conceding three goals in each (against Brighton and West Ham). They have collected only the one point from their last six games on the road in the Premier League. On their travels, they have scored nine goals and have conceded fifteen.
33% of their away games have gone above 3.5 goals and 67% of the away goals that they have conceded this season have been in the second half of games. The only two sides to have produced fewer league goals than Palace this season are Newcastle and Huddersfield. The Eagles have scored in three of their last four away games and they have taken a clean sheet in 33% of their road games this season. Crystal Palace have conceded exactly three goals in each of their last three away defeats. Their defence could, once again, come under a tremendous deal of pressure in this one.
It is hard to see past a comfortable home win for Manchester City. Palace aren’t likely to come up with the goals to challenge them. Therefore a Manchester City to win to nil option does look pretty good value for this game.
19th December 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Both Leicester and Crystal Palace suffered defeats last weekend in the top flight. The difference is, is that the Foxes are sitting a lot more comfortable than the Eagles are in the standings. The Foxes start up in the top half of the table while Palace are just hovering outside of the drop zone. Read our Crystal Palace v Leicester betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 29/20
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 11th, 2018 at 8:43 p.m.)
Crystal Palace suffered yet another league defeat last weekend, going down 3-2 at West Ham. That is back to back league losses for them now. Palace have taken just the one win in their last eleven league outings now (D3 L7) and just can’t get that precious momentum going at all. It has been a lean season from them at home where they have taken just a W1 D2 L4 record this season. They did have a success in their last home fixture though as they took a 2-0 home win over Burnley. That took their tally of home goals in this season’s EPL top four
The Eagles have conceded eight goals in their seven home games so it has not been a defensive disaster from them. They have earned a clean sheet in 29% of their home games. The trouble is that they have not scored in 71% of their home games in the EPL this term. Crystal Palace have only been trailing at half time once at home this season (W2 D4). Again the downside to that positive is that the Eagles have shipped 88% of their home goals in the second half of games. Palace have opened the scoring in two of their home games and have the joint-worst home record this season.
Palace won both meetings against Leicester last season to nil
The Eagles are unbeaten in their last three EPL games against Leicester (W2 D1)
Palace are W1 D1 L1 in their last three at home against the Foxes
Both teams have scored in just two of the last eight meetings
Palace are W5 D1 L2 in their eight against Leicester
The Foxes were brushed aside at the King Power last weekend in a 2-0 loss against Spurs last weekend. That ended a good run of six unbeaten that the Foxes were on in the EPL. They have only claimed the two wins in their last eight league outings though in a W2 D4 L2 record. On their top-flight travels, this term Leicester have posted a W3 D2 L3 record. They have gone undefeated in their last three out on the road as well. They have gone undefeated in their five away games against sides currently in the bottom half of the table (W3 D2)
Leicester have scored in all of their away games this season so that is a big positive for them. 50% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. In exactly two-thirds of Leicester away games this season, both teams have scored. Their Foxes though have been leading in just one of their away games this season at the end of the first half. Of Leicester’s eleven away goals, nine of them have been scored in the second half of games. They have also conceded the opening goal in five of their eight road fixtures this term. Each of their last seven games home and away have ended under 2.5 goals.
* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 11th, 2018 at 9:19 pm)
Crystal Palace got a good win over Burnley in their last home game and our prediction is that they can follow it up with another success here. Leicester have been unspectacular on their travels this season and could be in danger.

This could be a very entertaining battle between West Ham and Crystal Palace in London on the weekend. They are both very unpredictable sides and that could lead to plenty of goals flying around hopefully. It is going to be a tough job picking a winner out of these two. Read our West Ham v Crystal Palace betting tips for more.
West Ham 11/10
Crystal Palace 5/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 4th, 2018 at 7:41 p.m.)
West Ham collected a good 3-1 home success over Cardiff in midweek to give them back to back league successes. That positive result leaves them at W3 D2 L1 in their last six games, the only loss in that sequence happening against Manchester City. West Ham have produced a W2 D1 record in their last three league home games and overall they have gone W3 D1 L4 at home in the top flight this term. They did have a setback in midweek as striker Marko Arnautovic was injured against Cardiff and will be missing for a while. West Ham have scored 11 and conceded 12 at home this season.
West Ham have actually failed to score in half of their home games in the EPL. Still, even with that, 62% of their home games this term have gone over 2.5 goals. Exactly half of West Ham’s home games this season have made it to over 3.5 goals. In total, the Irons have come up with just the one home clean sheet all season in the top flight and they have not taken one in any of their last five. They have scored 64% of their home goals after the half time break. West Ham have been losing at half time just twice this season on home soil.
There were two draws between them in the EPL last season
The Hammers are unbeaten in six league games against Palace (W3 D3)
The Hammers are W1 D2 in their last three at home against Palace
Six of the last eight EPL meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Palace had a midweek setback as they were beaten 3-1 at Brighton. That leaves them with a W2 D1 L5 record on their travels in the top flight this season. The Eagles have produced one point only from the last fifteen available to them away from home. In total the Eagles have come up with seven road goals, conceding twelve. They have produced only the two goals in their last four away games and five of their seven away goals this term have been in the second half of games. The Eagles have not won away this season at a side currently above them in the league table (D1 L5).
Crystal Palace have earned a clean sheet in 38% of their away games. They have, however, conceded the opening goal in five of their eight away games this term. The only side to have scored fewer league goals than Palace this season is Huddersfield. Three of Crystal Palace’s away losses this season have been by a margin of two goals. Both teams have scored in just one of Crystal Palace’s last four league games. The Eagles have now failed to win nine of their last ten league games and could really use a boost.
We are going to predict a home win as we think that the Hammers can shade it. Neither are consistent and neither are reliable. But home advantage may just be the small difference between the two at the end of the day. Home win.
6th December 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Seagulls collected three points away at Huddersfield on the weekend to give themselves a really good lift. Three points at home on Tuesday night would see them put more separation between themselves and the bottom third of the table. Palace also did themselves a huge favour on the weekend as they took a solid home win over the struggling Burnley. Read our Brighton v Crystal Palace betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 17/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:47 p.m.)
It was a good weekend for Brighton who moved up to 11th in the league table after collecting three points against Huddersfield on Saturday. That leaves them with a good return of four wins in their last seven games (D1 L2). Their form at the Amex this season is W3 D2 L1 and they are running on a three-match unbeaten streak there at the moment. They have scored in each and every one of their home games this season. The Seagulls have also been leading at half time in three of their six at the Amex. Overall home and away Brighton are on a seven-match scoring streak in the top flight and both teams to score is at 21/20 odds* (betting odds taken on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:35 pm)
Brighton haven’t managed a clean sheet in any of the last four though but they have been up and leading in half of their home games at the halftime break. All of Brighton’s Premier League fixtures this term have been by a one-goal margin. Brighton to win by a one-goal margin is at 3/1 odds* (betting odds taken on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:35 pm). Another three-point haul for them in this one would see them potentially climb their way up to the top half of the table.
There was a 0-0 draw in this corresponding fixture last season
Brighton won 2-1 in a home FA Cup tie against Palace last term though
Palace are W3 D2 L2 in their six against Brighton in all competitions
Brighton are W2 D1 L1 at home against Palace in their last four
Three of the last four league settings have gone over 2.5 goals
Crystal Palace got a first over the weekend. They managed to win a league game at Selhurst Park for the first time this season as they eased past the struggling Burnley. That was an important win for the Eagles as they were on an eight-match winless streak of form before that. Overall this season the Eagles are W2 D1 L4 on their travels. So While they have done better away from home than at Selhurst Park, they are winless in four on the road at the moment (D1 L3). Crystal Palace have produced six goals in their seven road games, conceding nine. Less than half of their road games have gone over 2.5 goals and under 2.5 goals is at 8/15 odds* (betting odds taken on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:35 pm).
Palace have scored two-thirds of their away goals in the second half of games. With three of their away games having been goalless at the halftime break, then that leads to a decent proposition. That, of course, is the 0-0 halftime correct score is at 5/4 odds* (betting odds taken on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:35 pm). The Eagles are W2 D3 L2 at half time away from home this season. They have shipped 78% of their away goals in the second half games this term. In just two of their games away from Selhurst Park so far this season, have Crystal Palace scored the opening goal. A win would move them to within three points of the Seagulls.
Coming so soon after the weekend the draw looks to be the most likely outcome in this one really. Brighton have produced a good season on home soil and don’t look too likely to get beaten. Palace have done a lot better themselves lately with better defensive displays. Draw.
2nd December 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
It may not be the highlight match of Saturday but this clash at Selhurst Park is going to be all so important in terms of the relegation picture. Palace and the Clarets are level on nine points and both sat just above the drop zone heading into the weekend. There is a big chance for one of them to create themselves a little bit of a buffer. Read our Crystal Palace v Burnley betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 11/20
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 27th, 2018 at 4:55 p.m.)
Crystal Palace earned themselves a great point in a 0-0 draw away at Manchester United on the weekend. That was somewhat of a surprising result as they had not taken a clean sheet in six before that game. Back at Selhurst Park, they are still looking for their first home win of the Premier League season, going just D2 L4 in their six there so far. In those six home games, Crystal Palace have scored just the two goals. Under 2.5 goals is at 8/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 4:59 pm). The Eagles have shipped eight goals in their six home games, earning a clean sheet in 17% of home games.
They have failed to score in 83% of their league home games, which tallies up to them having scored in just one of six. Of the eight goals they have conceded at home, seven of them have been in the second half. They have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last three at home in the EPL. Both teams NOT to score is at 7/10 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 4:59 pm). Palace have failed to win any of their last eight league games home and away now. Four of their six home games in the league this season have been level at halftime for Crystal Palace v Burnley betting tips the half-time draw appeals.
Palace won this corresponding fixture 1-0 last season
Three of the last four meetings have ended in a home win
From six previous EPL meetings, Burnley are W3 D2 L1 against Palace
Both teams have scored in just two of the last seven meetings
Palace are W3 D2 L1 in their last six home games against the Clarets
Burnley suffered a 2-1 home loss against Newcastle on Monday evening in what was a huge blow for them at Turf Moor. It leaves them having earned just the one point in their last five league outings and the pressure is mounting. Their defence has been all over the place having conceded fifteen goals in five games. Only Fulham have shipped more goals than Burnley have done in this season’s top flight. Their form out on the road this season is W1 D2 L4 and they are just D1 L2 in their last three away from Turf Moor. Burnley have also been struggling in front of goal with six away goals only and they have failed to score in 57% of their away games.
The shortest-priced correct score option is a Palace 1-0 at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 4:59 pm). Of their away games this season 43% of them have ended up over 4.5 goals and that is down to their defensive problems. They have conceded a total of nine goals in their last three away games. Two-thirds of their away goals conceded have been after the halftime break. The halftime draw is at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 4:59 pm). Burnley have one clean sheet in their last seven league outings and they have scored first in just one of their seven road games this season. The Clarets have not been winning at the halftime break in an away game this term.
There has to be a big opportunity on home soil for Crystal Palace here to lend themselves a much-needed victory. Burnley’s defence has been awful lately and even though Palace are struggling in front of goal, they can find a way to nick this. Home win.
