Crystal Palace vs Tottenham: Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
Tottenham aim to continue their top four march with another London derby win over a Palace side on an alarming run of form.
Crystal Palace may be on home soil but that has helped them little of late and the visit of a confident Tottenham side could not have come at a worse time.
The Eagles are winless at Selhurst Park this season whilst Tottenham have picked up more points on the road than anyone this season with six wins from seven road trips.
Realistically there is only one way this game is going and for Palace fans you may want to look away now.
A Spurs win is the only feasible result and not just based on this seasons form.
Palace has lost the last three home games against Tottenham but there is at least some hope as the last four meetings between the two has seen Spurs win by just a single goal.
That at least goes to show that the matches between the two are close and with Tottenham concerned with European adventures, another slow and steady 1-0 away win looks the best way to go in this game.
- Tottenham to win by a one goal margin
The last four results between these two sides has seen that as an outcome with Spurs winning 1-0 on each of those four occasions.
Tottenham’s last two Premier League away wins have also been a single goal margin further adding weight to this bet.
- Under 2.5 goals
Only one of the last seven meetings in all competitions between the two has seen more than 2.5 goals in a game.
As mentioned above, the last four head to heads has seen a total of just four games.
