What Trueform says for Crystal Palace vs Southampton
Crystal Palace and Southampton have both suffered back-to-back Premier League losses but our Trueform chart suggests the Eagles have more scope to turn things around.
Saints again look short of attacking zest this season and that could easily lead to them getting dragged into another relegation battle.
Roy Hodgson’s hosts are more positive going forward and appeal at 19/20 in our first Crystal Palace vs Southampton prediction.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace should have led by half-time at Watford, as both Christian Benteke and James McArthur were frustrated by impressive saves from home goalkeeper Ben Foster.
Roberto Pereyra and Jose Holebas then struck for the Hornets following the interval, before Wilfried Zaha’s 78th-minute effort proved a consolation goal after Joel Ward missed a sitter in stoppage time.
Eagles midfielder McArthur admitted his side must be more clinical and said: “This is the Premier League, it’s tough and all about fine margins.
“We could have scored right at the death and we have four points, but we need to just keep going and playing well – if we do that, we will push up the table.”
The intent was there in that game and a home loss to Liverpool, so we feel Palace are worth persevering with after opening with a 2-0 victory at Fulham.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
After a good first-half showing, Ryan Bertrand’s 52nd-minute bullet effort put Southampton onto the front foot against Leicester at St Mary’s Stadium.
However, the Foxes equalised through Demarai Gray just four minutes later and Harry Maguire hit a stoppage-time winner after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg was sent off.
Mark Hughes declared: “Well, we didn’t deserve that, I thought it was a really strong performance by us. I felt we were the better team but we’re the team that’s lost unfortunately.”
Saints had previously lost by the same scoreline at Everton after opening with a draw against Burnley.
The visitors may sneak another goal here, but 8/1 for them to suffer a third straight 2-1 defeat in the Premier League completes our Crystal Palace vs Southampton betting tips.
Watford 2-1 CRYSTAL PALACE – Wilfried Zaha
