Betting Tips for the game

Roy Hodgson watched his Crystal Palace team come up with a perfect display to pick up one of the iconic presence of the recent Premier League campaigns, as the team beat Manchester City 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium.

Cardiff City were also up against a Manchester team but it was the Welsh outfit who managed to come out on the losing side after a 5-1 loss. This was the third defeat in the last four matches for one and his men.

Cardiff and Palace are coming up against each other for the first time since 2014 when the Bluebirds lost 3-0 at home. The last game between these two teams at Selhurst Park was back in 2013 when Palace picked up a 2-0 win. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Crystal Palace.

Crystal Palace vs Cardiff City draw odds: 4.00

Cardiff City win odds: 5.75

Correct Score odds

Cardiff are in a very poor position coming into this match. The thrashing at the hands of Manchester United has made a Cardiff as one of the worst defensive teams in the division. Warnock’s men have conceded 38 goals in the league. Even though Crystal Palace have a trouble with regard to scoring goals, this has dissipated in the last couple of matches. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for Crystal Palace.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Palace have come in with a strong defensive display over the last games. Players like Wan-Bissaka have caught the attention with a string of consistent performances. Cardiff may try to defend with numbers but the craft of Andros Townsend and Wilfried Zaha may see the home team score a couple. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Cardiff will defend deep and this is likely to result in a game that has was most of the good opportunities coming from outside the box. Andros Townsend has been a specialist when it comes to scoring outside the box, as he did so magnificently against Manchester City during the weekend. Townsend is on 3 goals for the campaign. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Townsend.
