Crystal Palace v Brighton Betting Preview, Odds & Tips

  • Date: 09/03/19
  • Time: 12:30
  • Venue: Selhurst Park
  • Channel: BT Sport 2

In what could actually be a more interesting game than the appeal may suggest a rare home win for Palace, however, I find at less than 5/6 in places may not appeal despite their poor accumulation of points at Selhurst Park this season. In reflection, Brighton’s away record suggests the 4/1 longshot outsider, but feel with both sides lurking close to the drop zone, both sides need to eye this and potentially see goals in this encounter.

Roy Hodgson may start with the same formula that pocketed a 3-1 win at Burnley, whereas Chris Hughton’s side were able to stop the rot with a 1-0 win at home to Huddersfield in their last encounter

Team News

Andros Townsend should be available for the home clash Saturday Lunchtime, with Roy Hodgson potentially naming the same starting eleven as per their convincing victory last weekend

Vincente Guaita will be training hard to regain his spot in goal, but may have to keep the bench warm, if Hodgson keeps to his starting eleven from Burnley

Chris Hughton may start with an almost identical starting eleven that beat Huddersfield with Adone likely to keep his spot after netting the three points for the seagulls

Potential Palace Starting XI: Hennessey, Aanholt, Tomkins, Dann, Wan-Bissaka, Kouyate, Millvojevic, Schlupp, Zaha, Batshuayi and Townsend

Potential Brighton Starting XI: Ryan, Montoya, Dunk, Duffy, Bernardo, Propper, Stephens, Bissouma, Knockarty, Andone and Jahanbakhsh

Betting Odds

  • Palace – 89/100 Marathonbet
  • Draw – 13/5 Betfair
  • Brighton– 4/1 Betfair

The Verdict

Despite the stats, popular markets, such as the both teams to score markets has the yes outcome at evens and 17/16 with 10bet. With a combination of goals in both sides last few games, Marathonbet are bigger than 6/5 for three or more in the tie. Brighton have had over 2.5 goals in eight from fourteen on the road this season. In contrast to Palace, they have experienced tighter results with just three from fourteen landing overs

Both sides have netted in all of the last six, with Palace keeping one clean sheet in the process. Brighton’s last clean sheet was against Huddersfield in a tight 1-0 encounter. However, Palace in the reverse fixture fell 3-1, but at home, one or neither team to score has landed in ten from fourteen encounters.

Having picked up less than a point a game at home, Palace have faired better away and will bring a fair few fans on the Brighton-London Victoria service Saturday morning. I feel that the direction of the match and woeful playing style of Brighton on the road edges the home win here. I was tempted with under 2.5 goals, although compilers have this covered at around the 8/11 mark based on the results of Palace at home.

Brighton however will need to put up some resistance and look towards getting some sort of result and with zero no-score draws on the road, the seaside outfit netting in all of the last four on the road could force the even money both to score market as a win-win this Saturday lunchtime.
