Tottenham return from the international break on top of the Premier League table but face a tricky test when visiting Crystal Palace.
The Eagles have held Spurs to a draw on home turf for the last couple of seasons and seem to be finding their feet under Patrick Vieira.
We’re taking 5/2 for another Selhurst Park stalemate as our first Crystal Palace vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace made wholesale changes over the summer and alarm bells were ringing after a heavy defeat at Chelsea and a tame draw with Brentford at this venue.
However, there was a lot more to like about the way they twice came from behind in a 2-2 stalemate at West Ham, where Conor Gallagher bagged both goals.
The Eagles then completed the deadline-day signing of French forward Odsonne Edouard from Celtic for an initial fee reported to be £15million.
“Scoring goals in the Premier League may be the biggest challenge in my career,” Edouard told his new club’s website. “But I’m confident in myself and my team-mates to be successful.”
This fixture has finished 1-1 for the past two seasons and Crystal Palace vs Tottenham odds.
Last Palace line-up: Guaita, Ward, Mitchell, Guehi, Andersen, Kouyate, McArthur, Gallagher, Ayew, Zaha, Benteke.
Luka Milivojevic is in contention having missed the opening weeks of the season due to personal reasons, but Jeffrey Schlupp (hamstring) has joined Nathan Ferguson and Ebere Eze (both Achilles) on the treatment table.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Spurs are at the head of affairs thanks to a trio of 1-0 triumphs over Manchester City, Wolves and Watford.
Son Heung-min grabbed a couple of those match-winning strikes while Eric Dier was nominated for the August player of the month award after impressing in a solid defence.
A late £25.8million move for four-times capped Brazil right-back Emerson Royal from Barcelona will further boost that rearguard.
The 22-year-old said in a video on Twitter: “I’m here to show my joy, to be in the best league in the world and at one of the best clubs in the world.”
Keeping hold of Harry Kane was Tottenham’s best bit of business this summer, though, and he celebrated with a double when Pacos Ferreira were beaten 3-0 in the Europa Conference League.
The striker also shone for England during the international break and has a great record versus Palace, including four goals in the last three head-to-head meetings.
Kane to net first at 14/5 is an easy choice to finish off our Crystal Palace vs Tottenham betting tips.
Last Spurs line-up: Lloris, Reguilon, Sanchez, Dier, Tanganga, Hojbjerg, Alli, Skipp, Son, Kane, Bergwijn.
Son is a doubt after picking up an injury while away with South Korea. Cristian Romero, Davinson Sanchez and Giovani Lo Celso will not feature as they are quarantining after travelling to South America for international duty.
Steven Bergwijn, Oliver Skipp and Ryan Sessegnon all returned from the international break with knocks and will be assessed.
