Crystal Palace vs Tottenham Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

There have been just six goals scored in the last six meetings between the Eagles and Pochettino's men, and we expect another tight clash

Tottenham will be looking to bounce back from their Carabao Cup defeat against Chelsea when they travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace in Sunday's FA Cup clash.

Mauricio Pochettino's men surrendered a 1-0 first leg lead to lose 2-1 at Stamford Bridge, before crashing out in a penalty shootout.

Latest odds 

Having come out on top in each of the last five encounters between these sides, they are 7/5 (2.40) favourites with to put that result behind them with a victory in this one.

However, the Eagles ran out 1-0 winners at White Hart Lane on their way to reaching the FA Cup final back in 2016, and are available at 9/5 (2.80) to pull off another upset this time out.


None of the last nine meetings between this pair have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on this one going to a replay after a stalemate here.

Team news

With Wayne Hennessey and Vicente Guaita still injured, veteran Julian Speroni is likely to start in goal again despite an error-strewn display in last weekend's defeat at Liverpool.

Victor Wanyama could be set to join Lucas Moura and Moussa Sissoko in returning to the squad for following injury, although Harry Kane, Dele Alli, and Son Heung-min remain absent.

While both defences were uncharacteristically generous in that seven-goal thriller at Anfield last weekend, it is hard to see Roy Hodgson's men serving up a similarly free-scoring clash here.


The hosts have let in just 11 goals in 12 home matches so far this season, and scored only seven times themselves at the other end.

Predictions

Considering Spurs' attacking absentees and the fact that each of the last six encounters between this pair has finished 1-0, odds of 4/5 (1.80) seem pretty generous on Palace ensuring under 2.5 goals for their 11th home game in 13 this campaign.

Spurs are of course favorites, but today has shown that the FA Cup is a tournament where favorites often lose

And who should score? Kane and Son won't play for sure.

logical forecast. Also do not expect a lot of goals scored
