What Trueform says for Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth

Crystal Palace and Bournemouth have achieved a number of similar Trueform ratings in recent weeks and we reckon it’s hard to split them ahead of Saturday’s clash at Selhurst Park.

The Cherries produced the stand-out performance when winning at Newcastle, but also got the lowest mark for a home loss to Burnley.

Otherwise, the levels are pretty close and, with five draws featured on the chart, 12/5 for a stalemate makes sense for our Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth betting predictions.

A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds

Crystal Palace have clawed their way off the bottom of the Premier League table with a series of gutsy displays, only losing away to Tottenham in their last six matches.

Back-to-back goalless stalemates at Brighton and West Brom made it four draws during that period, with a win over Stoke at this venue completing the solid run of results.

After the Hawthorns clash, Roy Hodgson commented: “I’m really pleased with the way we played and it was a well-deserved and valuable point.”

The Eagles drew 1-1 with the Cherries at Selhurst Park last season and 11/2 for a repeat result stands out from the Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth odds.

A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds

Bournemouth have plateaued a bit since a fine run of three wins in four games, but they may have been a touch unfortunate to only draw 1-1 with Southampton in last week’s derby.

Adam Smith was harshly booked for diving in the area after being challenged by Sofiane Boufal, when a penalty looked the correct decision.

“It’s hugely disappointing because not only do we not get the penalty but we lose Adam to suspension,” cried Eddie Howe.

The Cherries did go on to take the lead through Ryan Fraser just before the break, but Charlie Austin equalised for Saints on the hour mark.

Josh King has caught the eye of late for Bournemouth and will have fond memories of Selhurst Park after breaking the deadlock here last term.

We’re rounding off our Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth betting tips by taking 40/1 he strikes first in a 1-1 draw again.
