Tottenham vs. Crystal Palace: Betting Odds and Tips

Following a hard-fought 1-0 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage, Tottenham will be looking to keep their Champions League hopes alive when they take on Crystal Palace in yet another London derby. Spurs have been showing signs of improvement, with Gareth Bale finally earning a place in the starting XI. Since midfielder Lo Celso should be the only absentee in Jose Mourinho’s team, a home win should be considered.
The Eagles, on the other hand, head into the match with a severely-weakened squad. Even though Roy Hodgson’s troops managed to hold Man Utd to a goalless draw in midweek, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Spurs’ party at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. In their last home game in the English top-flight Jose Mourinho’s men rolled over Burnley 4-0, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on Spurs, according to Footballpredictions.

That was the outcome of the previous encounters, which finished with the exact same score in July last year, with Jeffrey Schlupp and Hary Kane scoring in both meetings.

Just one of the last five games produced over 2,5 goals, while two witnessed goals at both ends, Sporting Pedia reported.

Worth mentioning: Tottenham recorded a slender 0:1 win when facing London rivals Fulham at Craven Cottage on Thursday. The Spurs are on a run of three straight victories, all achieved by keeping clean sheets and coming on the back of a period in which Tottenham won just two of eight and allowed five defeats. Four of the Spur's last five outings resulted in over 2,5 goals, while two saw both involved sides score. Both of the team’s last two games at Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium finished in comprehensive 4:0 victories.
Crystal Palace met Manchester United at home on Wednesday, but the sides disappointed with their performance as the game finished in a boring goalless draw, repeating the score of the Eagle's previous game against Fulham. Crystal Palace are unbeaten in three matches, prevailing 1:2 away at Brighton prior to the two draws. The goals scored against the Seagulls are the only two Palace have managed across the last five games. Two of those five matches featured over 2,5 goals, while one witnessed goals at both ends.

Roy Hodgson's side have been uninspiring and defensive-first this season, ignoring any criticism that may result.
But against the Red Devils that regimented approach was the required style with Palace frustrating their opponents from minute one to 90. There were just three shots on target in the entire game.
Expect Palace’s tactics to be virtually unchanged on Sunday away to Spurs. The onus will surely be on Tottenham’s creative players to spawn a moment of magic, Sportinglife cited.
Tottenham have won each of their last four home matches with Crystal Palace and the bookie's odds suggest that trend is set to continue with a Spurs success trading at 9/20 with TonyBet.
Crystal Palace have triumphed in two of their last three top-flight road trips but the Eagles are big outsiders here at 13/2 with William Hill and the stalemate pays 17/5 with the same firm.
Tottenham are unsurprisingly huge favorites, however, backing the hosts to overcome a -1 start on the Asian handicap looks like a nice way in at 83/100 with Bet 365
Here we would only lose if Tottenham fail to win the game and that makes plenty of appeal on night where I reckon Mourinho's men will have too much class for Crystal Palace.
The Portuguese finally appears to be getting a tune out of Gareth Bale and I suspect Roy Hodgson's rearguard will find Tottenham's much-lauded attacking trident too hot to handle.
Indeed, Palace have chalked up back-to-back Premier League clean sheets but they have bagged only one shutout away from Selhurst Park this season and it's difficult to see them shutting out Spurs on Sunday, Mrfixitstips wrote.
HIGHLIGHTED PLAYER (HARRY KANE)
Widely regarded as one of England’s best strikers at the moment, Harry Kane enjoyed a meteoric rise at Tottenham Hotspur, scoring 21 Premier League goals during the 2014/2015 campaign to be voted PFA Young Player of the Year.
The highly-rated striker went on to surpass that achievement the following season as he helped Tottenham Hotspur mount a serious title challenge for the first time in the club’s recent history and he made a seamless transition to international football. Kane scored four goals in his first ten appearances for England to prove he was here to stay and at the same time established himself as a first-choice striker in Roy Hodgson’s squad ahead of the Euro 2016 finals.
Kane is a modern striker, who is extremely dangerous in the opposition box, but it was some outstanding goals from distance as well as link-up play with teammates that earned him an excellent reputation in world football. Kane is expected to lead both Tottenham and England in years to come, that is if he can resist the lure of top European clubs that continue to cast admiring glances his way.
