What Trueform says for Arsenal vs Crystal Palace
Arsenal are on course to finish in the top four thanks to their strong Premier League home form, but Crystal Palace are doing well in away games this term.
The Eagles have picked up seven wins and two draws from 17 road trips, with Manchester City the most notable of some decent scalps in those games.
We’re going with 3/2 for Roy Hodgson’s side to avoid defeat at Emirates Stadium for our first Arsenal vs Crystal Palace prediction.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Admittedly, Arsenal are chasing a ninth straight home win in all competitions, so there is no chance of us taking them on lightly.
However, the Gunners again failed to impress on their travels when fortunate 1-0 victors at Watford on Monday.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang capitalised on Ben Foster dawdling with a clearance in the 10th minute and the Hornets then had Troy Deeney dismissed almost immediately after the restart.
Arsenal were still put under strong pressure by 10 men throughout that contest, though, and could find life uncomfortable against a similarly athletic outfit in Palace.
With the Gunners also having to take in a Europa League trip to Napoli in a tight schedule, we just feel this could be a tricky obstacle to overcome.
Looking at the Arsenal vs Crystal Palace odds, there is some value in 19/10 for the visitors to score first, as they did when these teams drew 2-2 at Selhurst Park in late October.
Last Arsenal EPL line-up: Leno, Bellerin, Holding, Mustafi, Ozil, Torreira, Iwobi, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace went down 3-1 at home to Manchester City last Sunday but played their part in a competitive encounter.
Luka Milivojevic set up a tense finish when pulling one back on 81 minutes and the Blues only wrapped up victory with a stoppage-time strike on the break.
The Eagles had previously beaten Newcastle 1-0 away to make it five wins in nine top-flight fixtures, so their form is solid.
As well as upsetting City at Etihad Stadium earlier this term, Palace have also drawn at Manchester United and only lost 4-3 at Liverpool, with other notable triumphs coming at Wolves and Leicester.
Milivojevic has been magnificent all season and scored two of his 12 league goals in the home game versus Arsenal, making it four in as many meetings with the Gunners.
Let’s take 9/4 for him to net at anytime to finish off our Arsenal vs Crystal Palace betting tips.
Last Palace line-up: Guaita, Van Aanholt, Dann, Schlupp, Wan-Bissaka, Kelly, Milivojevic, Townsend, McArthur, Zaha, Benteke.
