What Trueform says for Southampton vs Crystal Palace
Southampton and Crystal Palace are too close to the Premier League relegation zone for comfort but both teams have shown encouraging signs of late.
Saints have secured two straight top-flight victories, while the Eagles impressed in defeat at Liverpool before knocking Tottenham out of the FA Cup.
We reckon it is hard to split these progressive outfits and 9/4 for a draw is our first Southampton vs Crystal Palace prediction.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Southampton made it four wins and a draw at Chelsea from their last seven Premier League matches when beating Everton 2-1 at St Mary’s Stadium.
James Ward-Prowse’s fine strike and a Lucas Digne own goal put the Saints deservedly in control against the Toffees and they survived a late rally by the visitors.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team also hit the post twice in that victory and the Austrian said: “It was a complete team performance and we played good football.
“It was the best game so far…we gave two chances away but had a lot of chances to score, it could have been four or five.”
Nathan Redmond again caught the eye for Saints, with his scorching pace causing all sorts of problems.
Redmond has netted five times in eight games and 11/4 for him to strike at anytime here stands out from the Southampton vs Crystal Palace odds.
Last Southampton line-up: McCarthy, Vestergaard, Stephens, Targett, Bednarek, Valery, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Redmond, Hojbjerg, Ings.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace are level on points with Southampton, three clear of the drop zone, after showing great spirit in a 4-3 defeat at Liverpool last time out in this competition.
The Eagles built on that bold effort by beating Spurs 2-0 in the FA Cup at Selhurst Park, with Connor Wickham’s opener and an Andros Townsend penalty doing the damage.
A much-changed Tottenham team was admittedly poor, with Kieran Trippier missing from the spot, but Roy Hodgson was rightly pleased with his side.
“We can leave Selhurst Park with a smile on our faces and see what awaits us in the fifth round,” he declared.
Palace have shown they can play on the road all season, picking up 13 of their 22 points in away games, so another good showing is expected here.
Let’s add 16/5 for a score draw to our Southampton vs Crystal Palace betting tips.
Last Palace EPL line-up: Speroni, Van Aanholt, Tomkins, Sakho, Wan-Bissaka, Milivojevic, Kouyate, Townsend, McArthur, Zaha, Ayew.
