Changing managers can often inspire an immediate upturn in fortunes and we’re tipping Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace to back up that view by beating Southampton.

Frank De Boer’s reign lasted just four Premier League games, with no points picked up and not a single goal scored.

However, the Eagles are not without talent or spirit and 21/10 their comeback begins this weekend is worth including in our Crystal Palace vs Southampton betting predictions.

A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds

De Boer’s departure came swiftly after Crystal Palace’s 1-0 loss at Burnley but that was not a bad performance in our book.

A terrible back pass from Lee Chung-yong gifted the Clarets an early lead but the Eagles rallied bravely and created enough chances to get something out of that game.

The stats back that up with Palace enjoying 65 per cent of possession and having 23 attempts on goal, only for Scott Dann and Christian Benteke to miss opportunities to equalise.

The Eagles can still take comfort from their overall play at Turf Moor and have beaten Saints at home for the past two seasons.

This may not be pretty but we’re taking 18/5 for the hosts to come out on top by a one-goal margin in our Crystal Palace vs Southampton betting tips.

A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds

Southampton have managed to secure five points so far but their performances have hardly been impressive after being handed a kind run of fixtures to start out with, netting in just one match.

Saints’ only shot on target in last week’s 2-0 home loss to Watford was a long-range effort from Cedric Soares in time added on.

“It is really difficult to create to score goals but we have to keep going,” said Mauricio Pellegrino. “I am confident we can improve.”

However, Saints did not score in six of their last eight league matches last season and we’re taking 29/4 for a 1-0 home win from the Crystal Palace vs Southampton odds.
