Correct Score odds
There have been a string of goals for Crystal Palace in the last few matches, as Roy Hodgson’s men have been excellent going forward with players like Wilfred Zaha and Andros Townsend on form. Burnley have been more about solid defending but they also have players capable of finding the back of the net in the form of Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-1 result.
