Betting Tips for the game
Crystal Palace were able to come up with an impressive performance at Old Trafford to pick up a goalless draw against Manchester United. However, the result extends the winless run for Palace to a whopping eight games.
Burnley lost 2-1 at home against Newcastle on Monday night to make it six games without a victory. Manager Sean Dyche admitted after the game that questions about his future will rightly be raised in the next few weeks.
The recent game between Palace and Burnley happened to take place at Selhurst Park with the home team getting a narrow 1-0 win. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Palace.

Burnley have been poor throughout the campaign and they have only seen rays of sunshine in the wins over Bournemouth and Cardiff. Even though Crystal Palace have been very poor at Selhurst Park, the opposition are in a much worse position. Hodgson’s men have joined up some decent performances in recent games and they were even able to get a draw at Old Trafford last weekend. Palace might have won the game with a bit more composure going forward. Our preview would pick a win for Palace.

Crystal Palace vs Burnley draw odds: 3.90
Burnley win odds: 6.50
Correct Score odds
It is quite incredible that Palace have not scored from open play at Selhurst Park this season. The goals from Wilfried Zaha and Patrick van Aanholt in the final home game of last season are the last time Palace scored from open play at Selhurst Park. This was also the last home victory for the Eagles. Burnley may be once again without Gudmundsson, who is the biggest creative influence in the team. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for Crystal Palace.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This is a game between two clubs that have averaged a goal every other game. Both teams have been so poor in front of goal but Crystal Palace do take this situation to the next level with a return of just eight league goals this season. Palace are the lowest scorers this season along with Huddersfield. Burnley (27 goals) are not far from catching Fulham (33 goals) in terms of goals conceded. Yet, our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Wilfried Zaha is Palace’s biggest threat. Even though he did not have many opportunities to score against Manchester United, the presence of the England international can unlock many chances for five Hodgson’s men. Zaha is Palace’s top scorer with three league goals. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Wilfried Zaha.
