Tottenham and Crystal Palace have a habit of producing interesting games between them – and this one will probably not be any different. The two teams have very different objectives this season, but will want to rack up points quickly in order to avoid falling into mid-season panic.
Although neither team managed to win all points on day 1, we think that one of them will do so in this fixture. A draw is unlikely, at least from a historical perspective.
Premier League Betting Previews, Odds & Tips – Tottenham v Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace was a team which had a very up-and-down season last time around. After a great first half, which saw them moving up to European qualification spots and even staying there for a few weeks, the team produced very few wins in the second part of the season and was almost involved in the battle to avoid relegation.
Although they might not like it, they should gear up for a rather disappointing season – as expected by the media and critics, as well as some of their home fans after their 0-1 loss to West Brom on Day 1.
On the other hand, Tottenham battled for the title almost until the last seconds of the season last time. They will want to produce the same kind of football, although it is widely expected that the two teams from Manchester and Chelsea to not be so disappointing as last year.
They’ve started with a 1-1 draw against Everton and will be looking to take all the points from the duel against Palace, especially since they are playing in front of their home fans.
We actually back them up to do so as well. A clear win seems to be in the cards for the Spurs, although we might not see a lot of goals.
We still think that the best betting ideas are Tottenham to score (small odds) and Tottenham to win (slightly higher odds). Harry Kane is also poised to start scoring again, in his quest to win the Premier League golden boot. Again.
Harry Kane Anytime: 1.91 or 10/11
