Prediction and odds for the game: Crystal Palace (7/2) v Tottenham (8/11)
We are backing the away win at odds of 8/11
When: Sunday, 13th December 2020, Kick-off 14:15
Where: Selhurst Park
On Sunday afternoon, Premier League leaders Tottenham take their title challenge to Selhurst Park for a potentially tricky clash with Crystal Palace.
The Eagles are enjoying a typical rollercoaster of a campaign in the Premier League. The Eagles are currently 11th place in the table, after taking 16 points from their opening 11 league matches.
A 5-1 win at West Brom was much-needed, as Roy Hodgson’s team had lost three of their previous four games heading into their trip to the Hawthorns. It was another league game were Palace failed to keep a clean sheet, as they have not managed to keep a clean sheet in ten Premier League outings.
The Eagles are usually strong on home soil, but their recent league results at Selhurst Park have not been great, as they have won just two of their last nine Premier League matches. They have also won just once in their last four home league outings. Their recent league outings on home soil have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last seven home games in the Premier League.
Jose Mourinho’s team head to Selhurst Park in superb form, sitting at the top of the Premier League table. The deadly attacking duo of Heung Min-Son and Harry Kane have played a crucial role in their lofty position in the league table. The pair have scored ten and eight top-flight goals in the top-flight this season. The pair combined brilliantly in Spurs 2-0 home win over Arsenal in the north London derby last time, assisting each other for a goal apiece.
The win was the visitor’s fifth win in their last six Premier League outings. It also means that Spurs are unbeaten in their last ten games in the English top-flight. Their last league defeat came on the opening game of the league campaign when they suffered a 1-0 home loss to Everton.
Not only have Mourinho’s team been firing in attack, but they have also been solid at the back too, as they have now kept clean sheets in their last four games in all competitions while conceding just once in their previous six matches in all competitions.
Spurs are unbeaten in eight competitive on their travels, having kept three straight clean sheets on the road.
Tottenham are big favourites heading into this clash, but Palace are unpredictable, so may not be easy opponents for the league leaders. We are backing the away win. This game could be low-scoring, despite Spurs recent scoring spree. The other recommendation is under 2.5 goals scored.
Verdict: We are backing the away win at odds of 8/11 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 10/11. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
