Tottenham have made a strong late charge at qualifying for Europe next season and are fancied to secure a fourth straight win when visiting Crystal Palace.
The Eagles no doubt can’t wait for this troubled Premier League campaign to end following a miserable run of seven consecutive defeats.
Punters can get 31/20 for Spurs to prevail without conceding and that gets a confident vote for our initial Crystal Palace vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace have drawn a blank up front in six of those losses following Monday’s 2-0 reversal at Wolves, which handed us a 5/1-plus correct score pay-out.
Jeff Schlupp missed a decent chance when he fired wide in the first half, but the Eagles’ confidence was shot once going behind just before the break.
Roy Hodgson said: “It’s pretty obvious we have to try to dust ourselves down and try to get freshened up, because there are a lot of tired legs.
“Even with all of our best players available, we would be looking at a match against Tottenham as a very difficult one to win.
“It’s going to be a tough one, we’ll do our level best to get a result but you don’t get it just by saying how important it is to get one.”
Injuries, suspensions and an ageing squad have all been contributing factors to the post-lockdown collapse.
The negativity around Selhurst Park is there for all to see and 7/1 for a fourth straight 2-0 defeat stands out from the Crystal Palace vs Tottenham odds.
Last Palace line-up: Guaita, Ward, Dann, Sakho, Schlupp, Mitchell, Townsend, McArthur, McCarthy, Ayew, Zaha.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham stayed in the hunt for a Europa League spot when following up wins over Arsenal and Newcastle with a convincing 3-0 victory at home to Leicester.
Spurs were aided by an own-goal opener but then Harry Kane added a couple of clinical efforts before the interval to set up a comfortable second half.
“We want to finish as strong as possible, we want to be in the Europa League,” declared Son Heung-min, whose shot was deflected in for the first strike.
“Now we’ve got one more game to go and it’s going to be really difficult again, but we try to enjoy and fight for every game.”
Spurs head into this match one point behind sixth-placed Wolves, but they do have a slightly better goal difference and Wanderers face a tough trip to Chelsea.
That should inspire Jose Mourinho’s men to put in a high-tempo performance and 27/10 for them to win both halves is added to our Crystal Palace vs Tottenham betting tips.
It’s also worth noting that Son has a good record in this fixture, bagging a brace in September’s 4-0 home win over Palace to make it four goals in three starts versus the Eagles.
He is 4/1 to break the deadlock at Selhurst Park.
Last Tottenham line-up: Lloris, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Aurier, Davies, Winks, Sissoko, Lo Celso, Moura, Son, Kane.
