Reason For Crystal Palace VS Tottenham Betting Tips
Tottenham failed in their bid to reach the FA Cup final when title rivals Chelsea inflicted a massive psychological blow with a 4-2 win at the weekend. We are backing a resurgent Crystal Palace to claim at least a point when they face off on Wednesday and this is available at a healthy 13/10 with bet365. For our correct score tip we think there will be nothing to split the two sides and we are backing them to play out a 1-1 draw, which is priced at 15/2 with the same site.
The Sam Allardyce effect has well and truly taken hold at Selhurst Park and Crystal Palace are now almost certain to avoid the drop. It’s a remarkable turnaround from a side which looked to be dead and buried under former boss Alan Pardew and the Eagles have only fell to defeat in one of their previous eight outings.
Christian Benteke has finally found his shooting boots and the target man has five goals in his last five matches and comes into this match on the back of an impressive brace against former club Liverpool on Sunday. The Belgian is priced at 13/2 to grab the first goal on Wednesday but we would side with a more conservative anytime scorer bet, which is still excellent value at 15/8 with bet365.
Spurs go into this match on the back of seven straight wins in the league and even though they the most in form side in the division, they will have a hard time shaking off their FA Cup exit. With just six games remaining, Mauricio Pochettino’s side are running out of time to close the four point gap to Chelsea and with Arsenal and Manchester United their only remaining home games, the writing looks to be on the wall for their title bid.
