Crystal Palace look to shake off a disappointing run of form when they take on relegation favourites Huddersfield at the Selhurst Park this weekend. Crystal Palace do have a substantial buffer over the bottom three, but Roy Hodgson is unlikely to take things for granted in the remaining eight games of the campaign. Huddersfield Town are edging closer towards relegation after the recent set of results. The club are now a whopping 16 points away from safety with just seven matches left. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Crystal Palace were knocked out of the FA Cup in the quarter-finals after a 2-1 defeat against Watford. This was the second such defeat by the same score after Brighton managed the same at Selhurst Park in the last league encounter for Hodgson’s men.
Huddersfield were unable to hold on to a 3-1 lead in the final 25 minutes of the match against West Ham, as the club lost 4-3 in incredible fashion. This was the third successive loss for Huddersfield, who are almost on the verge of relegation.
The recent game between Palace and Huddersfield produced a 1-0 win for the former at the John Smith’s Stadium back in September. Palace managed a similar victory when they last hosted Huddersfield at Selhurst Park for a League Cup encounter. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Palace.

Huddersfield would have taken a huge deal of confidence if the game against West Ham had concluded at 65 minutes. As it stands, the loss at the London Stadium is a huge blow to Jan Siewert’s position at the club. Huddersfield are an incredible 16 points away from safety with only 21 points left. Crystal Palace have also lost back-to-back games but the exit from the FA Cup can be a boon for the team in terms of league form, as the players may switch their attention back to the Premier League. Our preview would pick a win for Palace.

Crystal Palace vs Huddersfield Town draw odds: 3.75
Huddersfield Town win odds: 7.50
Correct Score odds
Huddersfield have struggled with the notion of scoring goals throughout the campaign. Palace were also not great on this front in the first half of the campaign, but things have changed drastically at Selhurst Park. Palace have averaged two goals per game in recent weeks. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Palace.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been a couple of games involving Huddersfield and Crystal Palace that have produced more than 2.5 goals, but a majority of the recent games involving both teams in their respective strongholds happen to suggest a low number of goals. Due to Huddersfield’s offensive improvement, our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Luka Milivojevic has been able to top the scoring charts at Crystal Palace owing to a great degree of consistency. He is also the first-choice penalty taker for the team. Palace may have witnessed a disruption to their form and preparation due to the international break. Our first goalscorer prediction would go with the safer option of Milivojevic.
