Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Crystal Palace were able to get a point – through their fifth draw of the campaign – following a 1-1 draw with Southampton in the midweek action. Palace have been able to claim just one victory in the league over the last six games.
Fulham came back from 2-0 down against Brighton at home to pick up a 4-2 victory in one of the best results of the season for the Cottagers. The second-half performance from Fulham was spectacular and all four goals came in these 45 minutes.
The reverse fixture witnessed Fulham losing 2-0 against Crystal Palace in the opening game of the campaign. Fulham travel to Selhurst Park for the first time since 2013 and they picked up a memorable 4-1 victory back then. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Crystal Palace have been playing some good football over the last few weeks and the team may have had a great chance of a success in the match if not for the unavailability of Zaha. The England international’s absence is a major blow to the creative potential within the team. Fulham, meanwhile, are yet to win away from home with the team only picking up two draws from 12 matches. It is unlikely that Fulham’s away record will immediately improve. Our preview would go with a draw.

Crystal Palace win odds: 1.95
Fulham win odds: 3.80
Correct Score odds
Crystal Palace will be struggling to create many opportunities due to the absence of Zaha. There will be enormous pressure on the likes of Andros Townsend due to this reason. Fulham are likely to play on the counter-attack in the match, but they have not done well in away matches – even after the arrival of Claudio Ranieri. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Ranieri has made several changes to the Fulham set up over the last few weeks. Even though there has not been a seismic shift in terms of defensive performances, Fulham have improved at the back. Crystal Palace are also quite good at the back with Roy Hodgson managing to organise his players rather well. The former England manager has also been able to make some brilliant tactical calls. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Aleksandar Mitrovic came back to form with a brace against Brighton. They happen to be the second time the Serbian has been able to score in the last 10 matches. Even though he has been going through a slump, the forward showed brilliant facets of his game in the match against Brighton. Apart from being good in the air, the Serbian is also good with his feet. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Aleksandar Mitrovic.
