Crystal Palace vs. Tottenham Hotspur

Sunday 13th December, 02:15 PM Kick-Off

Selhurst Park

Unpredictable Palace

Beginning the season tipped to fight a relegation battle, Roy Hodgson's Palace squad have yet to be figured out.

Palace hit Leeds United with a 4-1 hammering; this result followed two back to back losses and another 5-1 rebound victory against West Brom.

It feels like Jose Mourinho cannot avoid the pundits that criticise his style of play, but how significant are these opinions whilst Tottenham continue to provide results. Their results lifted to a ten-game undefeated streak with a win over Arsenal last weekend, this also became their 4th straight clean sheet.

Form, mentality, Premier League Odds and Trends

  • Spurs remain undefeated in their previous EPL 10 fixtures.

  • Spurs last two EPL away games ended 1-0 in favour of Mourinho's squad.

  • Tottenham have scored once in each of their previous four visits to Selhurst Park.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Betting Tips

Viewing Tottenham this season is like an invisible wall being positioned on the six-yard box, conceded goals are a rarity. I'd expect another low-scoring affair for Spurs, whilst Palace continues to register goals we believe this Tottenham squad can squeak a classic 1-0 Mourinho victory.

Crystal Palace vs. Tottenham Score prediction: Crystal Palace 0 – Tottenham 2

Palace vs. Tottenham Betting prediction: Tottenham win & under 4.5 2.10 [+110] at PaddyPower

Fulham vs. Liverpool

Sunday 13th December, 04:30 PM Kick-Off

Craven Cottage

It Could Be Worse

Fulham has been dealing with criticism all season long, but their terrible performances are beginning to become less frequent. Through their 2-1 victory over top side Leicester, some confidence is restored and potential to avoid relegation is present.

Unfortunately for Scott Parker, he'll now go toe-toe with the defending Premier League champions. The scary thought is, Liverpool are only just finding their form and are beginning to look more unstoppable than last season.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Betting Tips

Fulham has conceded the 2nd most goals this season next to West Brom; these stats become amplified when you realise Liverpool are registering 15 attempts on goal per game.

The available odds on a Liverpool are naturally low, but we expect a few goals to rattle the net this weekend.

Fulham vs. Liverpool prediction: Fulham 1 – Liverpool 3

Leicester vs. Brighton

Sunday 13th December, 07:15 PM Kick-Off

Goodison Park

Value on the Board

Brighton's recent hard-fought performances have dished up some hesitancy with the oddsmakers. And it is tough to blame them, Brighton has had multiple results go against them where they were the deserving squad.

Leicester's early-season success has quietened down, but the Foxes remain in a top-five position. Their recent home form has been underwhelming, but with an inconsistent Brighton squad next up, the bounce-back could be imminent.

Form, Mentality, Premier League Odds and Trends

  • Leicester have won four of their last five home games in all competitions.

  • Brighton has won one of their previous nine EPL fixtures.

  • Vardy has scored four times in his last five games versus Brighton.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Betting Tips

The available odds-on Leicester to win at home are a steal. It's not often you'll find a top-five team playing on home soil with close to even money.

Leicester vs Brighton Score prediction: Leicester 2 – Brighton 1

Leicester vs. Brighton Betting prediction: Both teams to score & over 2.5 goals at 2.10 [+110] at Bet365 (visit our Bet365 Review)
