Crystal Palace v Tottenham Hotspur: Betting Tips

Crystal Palace v Tottenham Hotspur

Premier League. Kick-Off: Sunday 1.30pm. Live on Sky Sports 1.

Without kicking a ball Spurs have been shortened to finish top 4 ahead of Arsenal. That’s the kind of knee-jerk reaction that happens when your biggest rivals lose at home on the opening day of the season.

However, with seemingly money to burn, I don’t think it’s time to write Arsenal’s chances of a Champions League place off just yet. Spurs just need to concentrate on getting their own job done and that starts by targeting 3 points at Selhurst Park on Sunday.

It’s the Eagles first game in the top flight for 8 years and I’m afraid to say they look ill-equipped to avoid an immediate return to the Championship. The fact that Ian Holloway’s headline additions include Marouane Chamakh and Jerome Thomas tells you all you need to know about the gulf between their squad and their opponents who look set to hand competitive debuts to Paulinho and Soldado.

All eyes will be on the later to see if he can transfer his La Liga form in to the Premier League and he’s 9/2 (Coral) to open the scoring or 13/10 (BetVictor) to score anytime.

Depsite Bale and Vertonghen being unavailable through injury and Scott Parker likely to be absent whilst he ponders a move away from White Hart Lane the new-look Spurs should be much to strong for Palace. Paddy Power offer up a generous 5/6 and I can’t see any reason for not snapping that up before it disappears.

With it being a live game a few bookies have priced up the Man of the Match market and I think we can narrow it down to a few likely contenders. If Soldado scores, and there’s no reason why he shouldn’t, then he’ll be nailed on to land the bet at 7/1 with Ladbrokes. The other debutant, Paulinho should also be a decent chance at 8/1 (Ladbrokes, Boylesports).

I’d expect it to be a fairly open and we could see some goals. Spurs to score 2 or more is a decent 4/5 with SkyBet and that should land.
