Crystal Palace look for a positive response when they host Tottenham in the latest London derby at Selhurst Park this weekend. Palace remain a couple of places above the relegation zone but it only takes a few bad results for the London outfit to be dragged back into the bottom three. Spurs have been able to keep themselves in touching distance of leaders Manchester City with a strong set of results. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Roy Hodgson saw his Crystal Palace team suffer a fourth defeat in five games after a 3-1 loss against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The last league victory for Palace was in the away game against Huddersfield Town in the middle of September.
Tottenham were able to hold on to a 3-2 win over Wolves at the Molineux Stadium. This was followed by a comeback victory over PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League.
The recent game between Spurs and Palace produced a 1-0 win for the North London outfit at Selhurst Park. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Tottenham.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Tottenham win at 1.83[/bet_tip_now]
Crystal Palace are at a price of 4.75 to win this match. Yet, the Eagles are not in a great position to get a victory out of this match. Spurs may have been defensively poor in recent weeks, but Pochettino’s team will be assisted by the return of players like Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli. Furthermore, star forward Harry Kane is in good form. At the other end, Palace’s biggest threat is Wilfried Zaha and he has been unable to score in almost 2 months. Our preview would go with a win for Spurs.

Crystal Palace vs Tottenham draw odds: 3.75
Crystal Palace win odds: 4.75
Correct Score odds
Tottenham have been unable to keep a clean sheet in the last five games across all competitions. Recent matches against Wolves and PSV have raised concerns about the defence. Most of the trouble is down to the rotation policy adopted by Pochettino in order to tide over the large number of matches over the last month. Palace scored twice against Arsenal in the recent match and they have the potential to grab at least one goal. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for the visitors.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Even though the last five meetings between Spurs and Palace have all finished with a 1-0 score, this match could be different with both teams on a strong surge of form. Palace are yet to score from open play at Selhurst Park but they may profit from Spurs’ poor defence. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Harry Kane has been managed very well over the tough period where Spurs had close to 10 matches in the last month. The England international has also been able to find a good run of form with four goals in as many games. Kane scored the winner in Spurs’ last match against Palace and our first goalscorer prediction would go with more of the same.
