Crystal Palace got themselves a good point on the board as they made a visit to Southampton in midweek. That keeps them just out of trouble above the drop zone but there is only a four-point cushion between themselves and 18th-place Cardiff. Fulham produced a tremendous performance to get three points in midweek. Read our Crystal Palace v Fulham betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 10/11
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 29th, 2019 at 4:59 p.m.)
Crystal Palace will step back into action without the services of Wilfred Zaha who picked up a red card in a draw against Southampton in midweek. The point saw Crystal Palace snap back-to-back defeats in the Premier League, but it does leave them with just one victory in their last six played. At Selhurst Park this season, Crystal Palace hold a W2 D3 L6 record.
In their home games, the Eagles have only come up with the six goals in total all season. Fortunately, their defence has been pretty rock solid as they have conceded exactly an average of a goal per game at home. Just 18% of Crystal Palace’s home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Palace are winless in their last three home league games, having lost their last two against Chelsea and Watford their both by a one-goal margin.
Overall this season, Crystal Palace have earned a clean sheet in three home fixtures. Incidentally, four of Crystal Palace’s six losses this season have been by a one-goal margin. Palace have only been trailing at the halftime break in one home fixture this season.
Of the 11 goals which they have conceded in their home campaign, all but one of them have been after the halftime break. Huddersfield, who are rock bottom of the table, and the only side in the top flight to have a worse home record than Palace. The Eagles are also the fourth low scoring side in this season’s top flight.
Crystal Palace were 2-0 winners at Fulham back in August
In the five previous EPL meetings, things are even with two wins each
Fulham have won two of their last three trips to Selhurst Park
Three have been an average of 3.4 goals per game over the last five clashes
What a second half Fulham produced at home against Brighton on Tuesday night. The Cottagers looked down and out at half-time trailing the Seagulls 2-0. But few would have predicted the second half performance that Fulham managed to come up with. The Cottagers fired off four goals in the second half to claim victory. Striker Aleksandar Mitrovic got himself a brace in the game.
It was a massively dramatic turnaround and it at least gave the London side a boost in terms of their survival hopes. There is still a long way to go for them to get out of the bottom three though. Although they do have a bit of home form behind them, they also need to start collecting points on their travels.
Fulham go into this one having lost back-to-back away games against Arsenal and Burnley. The Cottagers have taken only one point from their last nine away fixtures. They have only managed to come up with eight away goals this season, but the positive that they can take is that they have scored in both of their last two.
67% of Fulham’s away fixtures in the EPL this season have ended up over 2.5 goals. Fulham are looking for just their second clean sheet of the season on their travels. The Cottagers have been trailing at the halftime break in eight of their 12 only games. It has been just two points from 12 road fixtures for them this season.
Palace can take advantage of being at home against the Cottagers who still look shaky at the back. The Cottagers may have enough to get on the scoreboard in this one, but should still fall short. Palace to win & both teams to score.

The Saints have really done ever so well to give themselves a good shot at survival. They will be looking for their third win in a row as they play host to Crystal Palace on Tuesday night. The Eagles are on a slide after back to back defeats and are level on points with Southampton. and our Southampton v Crystal Palace betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 21/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 25th, 2019 at 11:54 p.m.)
What a turnaround in Southampton’s season it has been since their managerial change. The Saints are undefeated in their last three games, having won the last two back-to-back. Both of those wins were 2-1 scoreline victories over Leicester and then Everton. At home, this season Southampton are W-2 D5 L4. Both home wins have both been inside their last four home fixtures and were against Arsenal and then Everton. Southampton have totalled 13 goals at home this season, conceding 18. 73% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals.
Southampton have earned a clean sheet in 18% of their home games this season, but both teams have scored 73% of games at St Mary’s. The Saints are currently on a six-match scoring streak at home, but on the flip side of that, they have conceded in each of their last six as well. Each of the last five EPL fixtures at St Mary’s have ended up over 2.5 goals so there is a trend there. Southampton have conceded 61% of their home goals this season in the second half of matches.
The Saints took a 2-0 win at Selhurst Park in September
The Saints are W3 L1 in their last four EPL games against Palace
Palace have lost six of their last seven League visits to St Marys
Both teams have scored in two of the five League meetings
While they have had some tough fixtures lately, Crystal Palace are starting to slide back towards the Premier League drop zone. A 4-3 loss at Liverpool in their last League fixture has seen them lose three of their last four played (W1). Overall this season Crystal Palace have taken a W4 D1 L7 record on their travels. They had put together back-to-back away League victories over Manchester City and Wolves before losing at Anfield in their last game. In total Crystal Palace have scored 17 goals on their travels this season, conceding 21.
442% of Crystal Palace’s away games so far have ended up over 3.5 goals. The Eagles have taken a clean sheet in 33% of their away games and have actually only failed to score in two road fixtures this season. They are on a five-match scoring streak away from Selhurst Park at the moment. Palace have actually scored at least two goals in each of their last four League away games. Palace have conceded 71% of away goals in the second half of matches, while they have scored 65% of their road goals after the halftime break. Their survival seems to be heavily reliant on their away form.
The Saints are improving while Palace, despite some really spirited efforts are going in the other direction. It could be another great chance for Southampton to come up with some big survival points for themselves, especially after resting on the weekend.

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.

36% of their away games in the top flight this term have ended over 3.5 goals
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.

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.

Crystal Palace 8/13
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 23rd, 2018 at 2:12 p.m.)

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.

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.

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.
