Crystal Palace’s impressive victory at Turf Moor can act as a string in the step for Roy Hodgson’s team, who are inching closer towards a place in the top half, when they take on Brighton at Selhurst Park this weekend. Crystal Palace have been able to leap from Brighton with the latest set of results and the Londoners now hold a three-point advantage. Meanwhile, Brighton are only five points away from the drop following a disastrous second half of the campaign. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Crystal Palace were able to end Burnley’s high hopes of recovering immediately from the loss against Newcastle as Hodgson’s men produced a 3-1 victory. This was the third win in the last four games for the Eagles.
Brighton were finally able to end a wretched run of form, as the team beat Huddersfield Town 1-0 at home. This was the first league victory for Brighton in eight matches.
Brighton were able to manage a 3-1 victory in the reverse fixture and even with 10 men for most of the game. Crystal Palace are much improved compared to this display back in December and Roy Hodgson’s men have recent form coming into the game. Our preview would pick a win for Palace.

Brighton were able to pick up a crucial win over Huddersfield in the recent league encounter. This helped arrest a rapid slide down the table, but things are not completely safe for Chris Hughton’s men. Palace have been much improved compared to the first half of the campaign and the team has been justifiably making a move closer towards the top half. Palace have picked up more points than Liverpool in the last six matches and it is a strong reflection of their current form. Our preview would pick a win for Crystal Palace.

Correct Score odds
Brighton are finding themselves with a lack of goals while Palace have been coming up with a strong surge of goals.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Brighton have been defensively solid in the first half of the campaign but they have been unable to keep up this ring going in the second half. Despite keeping a clean sheet in the recent match, there is not a great deal of confidence in going with a strong defensive game from Brighton. Our total goals prediction would opt for over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Wilfred Zaha has been in sensational form over the last few weeks. Since the stellar performance against West Ham at the start of February, Zaha has featured in four games and has come up with as many goals. Our first goalscorer prediction would opt for Zaha.
